I hope the report's attempted causal effect of cranial binding and death is due to the reporter's misunderstanding. Young males were a lot more likely to die from trauma or disease than brain squeeze. Any biological anthropologist/archeologist should know that.

Read "Aztec" by Gary Jennings if you want a good, juicy, pretty historically accurate read. Full of sex, gore, drugs and violence. The protaganist travels all over Mexico and into Central America and encounters the head-binders at one point.  They are far from the freakiest thing in the book.  1000+ pages and I loved every one of them.

He wrote another about a hermaphrodite Viking (Raptor) and a Civil-war era circus troupe (Spangle), but "Aztec" and "The Journeyer" were the bomb.  I read that he actually researched those books for years before writing them to ensure historical accuracy. 
 
Don't mean to threadjack but damn, that was a good book.  And dirty, in a historically believable way, too.

Meh, they had skull binding, we have starfish tats.

In fact, maybe they had starfish tats. There's not much evidence one way or the other, but body modding remains the second oldest profession.

blacksharpiemarker: It's interesting to see this peculiar tradition in various ancient cultures the world over...


Yeah...between the elongated skull-shaping, the depictions of "ancient astronauts," and the artistic representation of the DNA double-helix by "primitive" peoples in various parts of the world, there definitely seems to be a bit of weight to the idea that a VERY long time ago, we were visited by an advanced species. I'm sure to someone who has yet to invent the engine, a ship coming out of the sky would have you looking up to a group of visitors and wanting to replicate them as much as possible.

It does if you make sure you know absolutely nothing about the artistic progression of ancient people, and then decide that humans are incapable of creating anything that they haven't previously seen before.

It was probably just an instruction manual on how to make rope. If you don't have naturally long fibers to work with, you need to twist the yarn to make long rope. Rope is a fundamental tool in a pre-oil, pre-cheap metal civilization.

It's been several years since I read The Cosmic Serpent - DNA and the Origins of Knowledge by Jeremy Narby, but I believe I recall striking similarities between the artistic representations of what appear to be the DNA double-helix among ayahuasca-using tribes in the Amazon and (I want to say) certain aboriginal artworks in Australia. Gotta run and get ready for work, otherwise I'd spend some time digging around the interwebs to find the exact stuff for ya.

BTW...The Cosmic Serpent is a great read and goes well with Just about anything by Wade Davis.

Agreed. If you really think about it, this theory is way more logical than gods, and angels, devils, etc. the fact that every civilization from the dawn of time has worshipped similar beings that come from the sky is remarkable.

You claim, or at least your response to the claim, is that it isn't plausible for humans to worship technologically advanced beings, because we want to imitate them.

Yet, I provide instances (or really a link to the phenomena, because it's so farking widespread there's a term dedicated to it) to the exact thing we're talking about actually happening in the modern era. I don't believe I claimed that people were emulating aliens at any point in my single sentence and in fact I was trying to make a point about humans imitating humans. As in, "could the pointy headed people have been imitating a more technologically advance civilization of humans that they had minor interactions with, such as happened with the [documented instances I provided[ for the past 140 years or so."

Mayhem of the Black Underclass: You claim, or at least your response to the claim, is that it isn't plausible for humans to worship technologically advanced beings, because we want to imitate them.


No, the claim is that it isn't plausible that aliens landed on earth and that skull-binding and similarities in art progression are evidence thereof.

I wonder why you specificially removed the bit about aliens in the claim I dismiss? Oh wait, I know why:

I wasn't trolling. I said explicitly, what about humans worshiping humans. Sorry if I wasn't clear.
I can see why you think I was supporting his claim about visiting alien species, but in my single sentence I did mention that it was an exclusively terrestrial relationship I was discussing.
