L. A. Marzulli Promotes "Watchers X" and the "European" DNA in Ancient America That "We Were Hoping For"
In his most recent YouTube broadcast, Nephilim theorist L. A. Marzulli took the opportunity to promote his new DVD, Watchers X, now selling for $19.95. He interviewed the DVD’s director, Richard Shaw, and the pair engaged in some rhetorical sleight of hand to make it seem like their DVD is a more dramatic revelation than it is.
Right at the beginning Shaw describes going to the Paracas History Museum in Peru, where DVD participant and sometime Ancient Aliens pundit Brien Foerster opened the display cases and handled the elongated skulls present there. “We can do that?” Shaw asked. He raved about the unprecedented “access” the team received at the museum. Shaw and Marzulli neglect to inform viewers that the Paracas History Museum is a privately run tourist trap, not a state-run museum, and Foerster is the director of the museum. Of course he can open the cases!
The two also discussed how much they enjoyed unwrapping the mummy of small Peruvian child. For Christians, they seem to really like desecrating the bodies of the dead. I guess as long as they’re pagan dead, I guess it’s all good. They also endorse the 1851 account of Mariano Eduardo de Rivero y Ustáriz (1798-1857) and Johann Jakob von Tschudi (1818-1889), which described what they falsely believed to be a fetus with an elongated skull found in its mother’s womb. Marzulli agrees that it is a fetus but claims that it has anomalous teeth and therefore imagines that the elongated skull is evidence of Nephilim, whereas Keith Fitzpatck-Matthews of Bad Archaeology explained years ago that it falls within the normal fetal range. I don’t really want to go into the details of decay to explain why the teeth became visible after death.
Marzulli claims that he had DNA from a “red-haired” Paracas skull tested twice, revealing the presence of haplogroup U2E1, which he says proves a European connection. (The hair likely faded after death due to a breakdown of pigments, but Marzulli believes it represents Celtic-style auburn hair.) He scoffs at skeptics who might dismiss this as contamination, saying that is not possible due to the care his group used in taking samples. This raises a couple of questions: First, how old was the mummy? If it is from after the Conquest period, there is nothing unusual about the U2E1 presence. Interestingly, recent research has found the U2E1 haplogroup in aboriginal Siberians, suggesting that it traveled to eastern Asia and therefore might have also crossed into North America with the first Amerindians, though at the moment there is no conclusive evidence for the arrival of this haplogroup in Siberia before 3500 BCE.
The “European” result, Marzulli said, “is what we were hoping for.”
That probably says more about the underlying motives of this research than anything.
Another skull, unearthed in the 1920s, allegedly revealed “Syrian” DNA, which Marzulli says is proof that the Nephilim were in contact with Peru from the Middle East base of power in recent times.
Shaw and Marzulli allege that “the big skull” (whatever that is) had been carbon dated to 1100 CE, but they did not explain the methodology used or who did the testing. In one of his books, Foerster had claimed the skulls dated to 50 CE, so it would seem that someone isn’t right.
Marzulli claims that the elongation of the Paracas skulls could not be accomplished with head binding because of the angle of the forehead, which he says is impossible for binding to create. Paintings and descriptions of head-binding from historic periods show the same “impossible” angle on people who were known to have used or actually witnessed in the process of using head-binding.
The Watcher X DVD also will feature an interview with a man whose face and voice have been disguised. He claims to have served in the U.S. military in Afghanistan where he captured a monstrous giant. So why not go on the record? Reasons! Those with “secret” knowledge always lack the courage of their convictions when it comes to exposing the “truth.” The DVD will also claim that the body of a dead fairy (or, “locust” from Revelation, as Marzulli prefers) is not a hoax but rather contains a real skeleton and DNA that does not match any “mammal.” The creature appears similar to other dead fairy hoaxes, like the 2007 Derbyshire April Fool’s Day dead fairy prank. Not to be too gross about it, but it’s easy enough to fake a human-like body from real animal bones if one so desired, so the x-ray evidence proving it has bones isn’t too convincing. The “feejee mermaid” had bones, too.
