Nearly two decades ago, the rumors began: In the Atacama Desert of northern Chile, someone had discovered a tiny mummified alien. The humanoid was first discovered in in the remote Atacama desert region of Chile, but I did not learn of the existence of the specimen. A recent paper identifying a much talked-about centimetre skeleton as human has come under fire from other researchers, who allege the.

The widespread speculation surrounding Ata brought the case to the attention of Gary Nolan, senior author of the new study and professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford University.
What do you get out of denying the facts and trying to shut down the debate? I will add a note to correct. America’s Most Revolutionary Artist.
What’s The Real Deal About The Atacama “Alien”?
It turns out to be human, with a fascinating genetic story from which we might learn something important to help others. Your failure to recognize the embalming process as the likely reason for the difficulty in age estimation of the Egyptian child does not bear on Dr. The DNA evidence is strange, on that we can agree. In short, there is no compelling evidence that this specimen is anything other than the mummified remains of an aborted foetus. Clean Free Energy anybody?
But, as they write, “we can only speculate as to the cause. August 30, at 2: June 13, at 7: I also have a few questions for Paolo: Your email address will not be published. It also seems logical that pressure from being buried would affect the soft tissue to the extent of appearing misshapen.
Mummified remains of children are notoriously difficult to get an accurate atacxma for. This sort of post mortem posture change is commonly seen in dinosaurs, although they start out with a straight back which arches backwards, rather than a bent back that straightens up, but both changes involve a similar net change of back position in the same direction — there is some information about this here: May 6, at 4: Yekra Player Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.
This humanoud further backed up by the actual foetus shown to have its floating ribs beginning to develop after the other 10 have already formed. This preliminary report demonstrates how currently available biomedical technologies can be readily applied to the analysis of archeologically and anthropologically relevant human specimens with genetic disorders humaanoid unknown origin.
Golding cites a couple of sources. Nolan in this endeavor. The team make no mention of the bone density artefacts recognised humamoid being associated with mummified remains in any of their reports. To this we must add the environmental conditions of the Atacama region, which is the driest desert on Earth, and is perfect for the preservation of objects of various atacamx. The researchers were looking for what might explain the skeleton’s small stature, as well as the abnormal rib count and other bone and skull oddities.

July 16, at These clearly contained bone marrow material, as atacaka seen on the dissecting microscope that was brought in for the procedure. I have one question you ignored from last reply that i ataacama YOU might be able to asnwer, given you are a supposed expert in muummified remains fetus or not… How are the epiphyseal plates affected in mummified foetuses?
I was typing on my phone, so I was not inclined to type out a list or get into detail.
There is too much unidentifiable DNA to make a positive orientation one way or the other. The skeleton was remarkable in many ways. However, the specimen is mummified and there is a well recognised issue with getting accurate ages of mummified infants using this technique. H er small stature and abnormal proportions were likely the result of genetic mutations largely associated with human growth, such as mutations in genes associated with dwarfism and scoliosis.
And… one simple question for paoloV, if this is a human fetus, where are the images of the many similar fetus? As the dry conditions dessicate the specimen, the cartilage of the developing bone acts as a precipitation matrix for the salts, increasing the opacity of the cartilage to X-rays.
So I will back down on the lithopedical changes in bones. A medical doctor has no need of the skills of a palaeopathologist or forensic archaeologist — which is what you would need to undertake the examination of this specimen. Through your amazing work and our extraordinary claims, we will require a plethora of extraordinary evidence. The extremities can not shorten up, but the thickness of the limbs will be reduced to approx.
Human fetal skeleton at 7 to 9 months, 15 inches tall.
That seems to me a bridge too far from an empirical standard. Photo of the Day. Also worth noting is there is no known abnormality that produces 10 ribs in humans.
Because the facts do not corroborate such a hard-lined stance. From the harlequin eyes, to the shape of the skull, to the diminutive size, 10 ribs, to the bone studies that suggest it is years atacana.

To date, the DNA data cannot explain these perplexing findings. June 10, at The ways in which these complications can arise are horrificas must be the circumstances of any woman who decides to atacma them in order to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.
I just stumbled across this:
