Saw Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull today. I had been following this most interesting subject for several months and recently began reading Rob
I e-mailed Mr.
For a succinct gaze at the story behind crystal skulls, here is another good article.
P.S. Here is the response Rob wrote to the last linked article; Not sure if they've posted it yet:
I enjoyed this article because of its emphasis on a connection between the crystal skulls and a higher order of energy or consciousness. While such a connection is speculative, I find it far more enlightening and uplifting than the debunking article on crystal skulls published in a recent issue of Archaeology Magazine. In that article, the skulls under scrutiny were called 'frauds,' lacking ancient authenticity. Demoting crystal skulls to the realm of fakery removes the mystery and denies the mythology. Such reductionist science intentionally overlooks the spirit realm, because it's difficult to quantify, and focuses only on the material form that can be measured and analyzed. But there's more to nature and mankind than the physical realm, and this article merges those two realms. It also shows that the scientific analysis on the age of the skulls might not be as accurate as the researchers would like us to believe.
