Hybrid Paracas humans were the elite of the Olmec Civilization!
Did the same people kick off Poverty Point in Louisiana, civilization in Mexico and the Paracas Culture in Peru at the same time?
The brilliant forensic artist, Marcia K. Moore, digitally reconstructed the head of a hybrid American Indian-Paracas “big head” and came up with humans identical to one the most enigmatic styles of Olmec Civilization sculpture. This is a game-changer.
Long ago, when I was on a fellowship in Mexico and going through the obligatory journey through the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, I quickly noticed that the art of the so-called Olmec Civilization portrayed many distinct ethnic groups. The Olmecs had nothing to do with the Olmec Civilization. That ethnic label was a major booboo by Gringo archaeologist, Mathew Stirling. Seven decades of protests by Mexican anthropologists is finally persuading their profession to call this brilliant culture, a name reflective of its major participants . . . the Zoque People. Even back in 1911, the Miccosukee knew that their ancestors, the Zoque, had been the major players and they told this fact to teacher J. E. Lazelle. The information fell on deaf ears, because three decades would pass before North Americans would even know that this civilization ever existed.
The industrial-sized stone heads that predominate articles on the Zoque Civilization represent a minuscule proportion of statues created by its artisans over an 700 year period . . . somewhere in the range of 1/1000th. Far more statues look like Anglo-Saxon kings with shoulder-length straight hair, long beards and flowing mustaches . . . as seen on the left. Thus, the belief that these giant heads represent the “founders” of all civilizations in the Americas is equivalent to a book on “Sculptural Art in North America since 1200 AD” proclaiming that Civil War veterans founded all the nations in the Americas . . . except that statues of Civil War veterans represent a much higher percentage of public art in the United States.
Actually, the highest percentage of statues portray people of obviously East Asiatic origin. However, there are also a large number of statues, which look like the popular concept of extraterrestrials. These bald men with super-sized brain cavities are typically presented as the elite and are the focus of this article. After spending a week , touring the National Museum, I asked Dr. Romàn Piña-Chan, its director, about the diversity of physical types portrayed in Miztec-Zoque art. He said that they represented the diversity of physical types among indigenous peoples in Mexico today. He thought that many ethnic groups were participants in the Olmec Civilization. Piña-Chan wrote THE book on the Olmec Civilization. That is true except for the “extraterrestrials.” The only place one would see those folks in Mexico today would be on reruns of Star Trek with Spanish subtitles.
Dr. Piña-Chan explained the freakish looking figures above as being representative of an obsession by southern Mesoamericans with people with birth defects. That is what you will read in virtually all anthropological texts, published in the past 50 years. Indeed, one does commonly see dwarfs in the company of Maya nobles in murals. The anthropologists claim that these figures portray “children with Down’s Syndrome” [Mongoloidism], who also had hydrocephalus [water on the brain]. That explanation sounds reasonable, except that when you look at these figures, they are often portrayed as nobility or at least as a warrior or wrestler, such in the center figure of the images at the top of the article. It is highly unlikely that someone with both Down’s Syndrome and hydrocephalus would become a great warrior king.
In a recent video, featured on the People of One Fire, researcher Brien Foester explained the appearance of Paracas* skulls, when the person was of mixed homo sapiens and homo paracas heritage. The craniums were larger than normal homo sapiens, but bottle shaped and extended upward. Pure homo paracas skull extended backward in a cone shape. Whereas full-blooded Paracas skulls were covered in red or brown hair, some bottle head male hybrids were bald. To date there has been no explanation why the hybrids were sometimes bald. *Paracas is a 20th century mispronunciation of the Panoan word Paracusa . . . which of course, was the title used by Proto-Creek, Satile and Calusa kings in the Southeastern United States. Paracusa means “Ocean-Elite” or “Ocean-Strong.”
There are distinct differences between the skulls of full-blood and hybrid skulls, when compared to normal homo sapiens skulls. Full-blood skulls are 60% heavier and contain 25% more space for the brain. Full blood and hybrid skulls usually have only one parietal plate, while homo sapiens skulls have two plates. The spinal chord enters the skulls of full-bloods and hybrids at a slightly different location. Both full-bloods and hybrids have heavy bone armor at this junction . . . just like Creek skulls . . . which also appear to have much thicker bone in the skull walls, if compared to those of northern tribes such as the Cherokee. Apparently, over the centuries, some DNA from the Paracusa elite was passed down into the main population of the Creek’s ancestors. This is important information that should be incorporated into the analysis of our DNA . . . but probably isn’t. The Red-Haired, Big-Brained People originated in the region around the Black Sea in the Middle East.
When supervising the exhumation of a mixed white-Creek-Cherokee cemetery in Cobb County, GA in 1996, I could instantly recognize a Creek burial because the differences in their skulls and skeletal proportions. We call the bony armor around the juncture of the spinal chord and skull, the Creek knot. The Creek knot also appears on Neanderthal skulls. Several physicians have noted the difference in the skulls of Creek athletes. An Alabama Creek woman told me a few years ago that her son would have been paralyzed permanently from a football injury, had not he been blessed by a “strange skull.” Of course, the physician didn’t realize that the Creek Knot was a trait passed down sometimes to even people with a small percentage of Creek, Soque or Maya Indian ancestry.
The bottle shape and “dimples” on the “extraterrestrial” statues of the Zoque Civilization can been seen in the heads of Paracas hybrids. The immediate response to this overwhelming evidence is to assume that Paracas hybrids sailed northward and founded the “Olmec Civilization.” Here is the problem, however. The Paracas Culture in Peru lasted from 800 BC to 100 BC. It was preceded by advanced cultures with normal homo sapiens going back at least to 3,600 BC. It was followed by cultures with normal humans. On the other hand, the “Olmec” civilization flourished from around 1200 BC to 400 BC. It was preceded by cultures with normal humans, who were skilled farmers, but who didn’t make pottery or build mounds.
The Epi-Olmec Civilization, which followed the Olmec Civilization, was actually more culturally advanced. It continued to contain some bottle-headed elite, but did not construct large towns. The chronological evidence suggests that the red-haired, big brained people arrived first in Mexico around 1200 BC then after spawning a whole bunch of bottle-headed offspring, sailed southward to Peru, where they stayed for about 400 years. There is much about the history of the Americas, which is yet to be revealed!
