user posted image rThe 12 surviving Aztec crystal skulls are cherished by museums, revered by New-Age writers, and have a starring role in Harrison Ford's new movie. There's just one problem: they are fakes, say French experts. A drastic title change may be needed for the much-awaited, new Indiana Jones movie, which comes out next month.

Harrison Ford's comeback as Steven Spielberg's swashbuckling, fedora-wearing archaeologist is to be called Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

For goodness sakes! It's a fantasy movie not a doccumentary!
And in any case how can you be an "Expert" in something that has it's origins shrouded in mystery?

  • I have no idea where this will lead us. But I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.

This is just wrong. Not a good article to post.

As well there is a bit of a phenominon going on these days. Some people out there are blending reality with movie reality. This is a real problom in my opinion. Look how those activists reacted to Keith legers death and he was just an actor in Brokeback Mountain. They even protested at his funeral.

It was just a movie

When is it coming out?

Actually the article is talking about the original skulls - not the ones used in the movie.... It helps to actually read the article sometimes before posting...

Thank you Mr.Know it all...my post said why would they even think of using the original skulls...I'm sure most people would know the ones in the movie were fake....Don't try to read between the lines.....Oh by the way I did read the entire link...that's why I mentioned how interesting a story the crystal skulls are......

Indiana JOnes and the Heap of Old Junk...that has so many possibilities they must make the movie!

HANSEL: So I'm repelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I'll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize "Holy ****, Hansel, haven't you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn't some of this maybe be in your head?"

DEREK: And?

HANSEL: And it was. I was totally fine. I've never even been to Mount Vesuvius.

Posted 23 April 2008 - 05:46 PM

I have heard/read that several of these crystal skulls have been proven fakes. But, how can the French call them all fakes? I highly doubt the French experts in question have examined them all. Very few people have seen or examined even most of these skulls.


Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I thought I had read it was proven the skulls were fake. They were supposedly manufactured in Europe last centuy (the 1900's)

Can you explain that rationale?

Blah. Way to debunk one of the few remaining legends. It was good for a while, though, I guess.
