在南极发现的令人震惊的奇怪头骨 可能是来自外星人The shocking claim mystery skulls 'found in Antarctica could be from aliens'
IT WAS a mind-blowing announcement - that not only had remains of historic inhabitants of Antarctica been found, but at the same time they could be from aliens.这是一个令人震惊的消息，不仅发现了史前南极居民，而且他们有可能是外星人。
The story went viral online, claiming that three ancient skulls were unearthed by a team of archaeologists.
It was seen as mind-blowing, not only because it was thought at the time Antarctica was first reached by humans, in 1820, hundreds of years after the suspected age of the skulls, but also because they were "elongated with giant craniums", leading some commentators to claim they could have been the remains of aliens who visted Earth.
The reports claim that an archaeologist called Damian Waters and his team uncovered the skulls in a region of Antarctica called La Paille.
该报道称，名为Damian Waters的考古学家和他的团队在一个叫"La Paille"的南极洲地区发现了这批头骨。
They were hailed initially as the first human remains uncovered from Antarctica, before it changed to the first remains of aliens found on Earth.
Mr Waters, allegedly an archaeologist from Smithsonian Institute of New York, reportedly said after the alleged discovery in 2014: "We just can't believe it. We didn't just find human remains on Antarctica, we found elongated skulls.
"I have to pinch myself every time I wake up, I just can't believe it.每次醒来的时候，
"This will redefine our view of mankind's history as a whole."
Elongated skulls have been found in Peru, Egypt and other areas with an ancient historical past.
While many conspiracy theorists point to them of alien visitations of Earth over the centuries, they have been explained away as a bizarre practice by some ancient civilisations, to extend the length of the skull through manipulation from an early age.
Conspiracy theory websites reported at the time about the Antarctica skulls: "It shows there was contact thousand of years ago between civilisations in Africa, South America and Antarctica.
"These elongated skulls are much, much larger than normal human skulls would be.
"Purposeful cranial deformation can change the shape of a skull, but it cannot increase the volume of the skull.
"In addition, these skulls have quite a few other important physical characteristics that greatly set them apart from normal human skulls
But aside from debates over whether the skulls were human or alien, there is now one over whether they were actually found
It appears the story could be online Chinese whispers at their worst.
Sceptical website www.skeptophilia.blogspot.co.uk researched the origins of the story after becoming suspicious of the alleged comments made by Mr Waters.
The report said: "Well, first, I have a hard time imagining a scientist in a press conference telling the world how he has to pinch himself when he wakes up because he's so 'excited'.
"Secondly, there seems to be no region called La Paille in Antarctica. Paille is French for straw, something I haven't seen much of in photographs I've seen of Antarctica, so it's a little hard to see why someone would name a place down there La Paille.""
Skeptophilia went on to say it found no record of a Damian Waters who works for the Smithsonian, other than in stories about these alien skulls. Skeptophilia（网站）
The website said: "I suspect that he was made up, along with the skulls and La Paille and everything else about the story."
The report added: "It's a shame, really. Given the cachet that Antarctica has, it would be cool if there was some kind of weird mystery down there, or at least something other than penguins and leopard seals and high winds and a crapload of ice.
So it appears the whole thing was an elaborate hoax
But that doesn't appear to stop die-hard believers.但这并不能阻止铁杆信徒的出现。

He wrote: "Aliens in Antartica...not so far fetched actually.
"Antartica's climate has changed a lot every 10,000 years. So yes its easy for an alien culture to live there and not freeze to death."
"Sure, its unusual that elongated skulls were found, especially since there have been many such discoveries in Peru, thousands of miles across the ocean. Overall, a great discovery.""
He then asked himself, "Let's see, where were we? Oh yes." He then went over some of the things we had discussed earlier in order to be able to continue where he left off.
When he went over the Antarctica details again, he mentioned a few new data points that he hadn't brought up in the previous conversation. The thing that stuck out the most was when he stated that not far from the ruins I observed, an ancient burial ground had been located. This burial ground had graves that ranged from 18 to 60 thousand years old. The remains that were excavated were of a non-human race with elongated skulls and odd skeletal structures. Specifically, their ribcage and hips do not have the same proportions as a normal human being. This was a description that I recognized immediately, as it matched those of Egyptian pharaohs such as Akenhaten and his wife Nefertiti. Furthermore, preserved remains of these same beings were found that had been flash-frozen in the ice shelf, along with a variety of prehistoric animals. Some of the ruins had also been lifted above ground level and flash-frozen in the ice. It was as if a giant tsunami had been suddenly transformed into ice. What ever happened had occurred very quickly, with little warning to the inhabitants of these structures – much like the idea of a sudden pole shift.
