Childress embellished the version produced by Charles Berlitz, not EVD. The fact that Childress' quote doesn't match Berlitz's is the lie here, though the others are just as guilty as Childress.

Don't use them for references either, for the same reason.

Childress is the only source I've found for Posnansky finding elongated skulls at Tiahuanaco. Since Childress is a proven liar, I'm asking for other references.
None so far, I see.
