The new Wii video game, Lego Indiana Jones and its corresponding Indiana Jones movie has caused many people to begin interested in knowing more about the crystal skull artifacts in the museums. The biggest one is now exhibited in Smithsonian Museum. Some people believe that crystal skulls are genuine artifacts from the Mayan or Aztec civilizations. However, many of these crystal skulls exhibited in museums are faked artifacts made from the 19th and 20th centuries. During this period, there was a thriving business in fake antiquities.
Many believe that crystal skulls are something that possesses magical powers. As shown in the movie, these skulls possess the ancient unknown power which is able to mysteriously translate the ancient text into something we undertand. Others even believe that these crystal skulls contain pictures from the past so that you can use them to trace your past. Some people also believe that these skulls are the products of the fabled Atlantean civilization. However, Atlantis is not a real place. It is only a place made up by Plato.
Do crystal skulls really possess some ancient knowledge, and encoded with the secrets of the universe? Some of these crystal skulls have been discovered in various ancient ruins in Mexico and Central America. However, not sufficient information is provided for us to understand who made these skulls, where they were designed and created, and what purpose do they serve. Many people nowadays still feel that these skulls have healing powers. Believe it or not some also think that the 13 crystal skulls will bring about the end of the world in 2012.
Do you believe in these myths? Or are they just some crystal skulls collectables for you and me to own? I let you make your own decision.
