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......

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.

I thought I had read it was proven the skulls were fake. They were supposedly manufactured in Europe last centuy (the 1900's) Look who called them all fake, the french. That in its self says all that needs saying. Can you explain that rationale?

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 Its Heath Ledger not Keith. But yeah he was just an actor, but kinda good 1
