Controversy over Tiny Alien-Like Hominid Continues
Recently we reported on the discovery of a tiny 6-inch hominid skeleton found in Chile’s Atacama Desert with unusual characteristics, as shown in the Sirius Documentary . The specimen was subjected to extensive medical examination including a range of genetic test and the results found that there was nothing in the DNA that could conclusively prove that the subject is non-human. As Gary Nolan, professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford University stated: "I've only scratched the surface in the analysis. But there is nothing that jumps out so far as to scream 'nonhuman'". In fact, it concluded that the 6-inch creature was nothing other than a 6 to 8 year old girl!
Following this report, the mainstream media jumped into action with mass reporting along the lines of ‘what a relief, it is a human being after all’. However, this story is far from finished. A number of scientists are not satisfied with this final conclusion and have remarked that there has been a complete lack of scientific enquiry into the still unexplained characteristics of the hominid. In particular, it has 10 ribs instead of the 12 that humans have, its miniscule growth rate is at odds with the surrounding skeleton, 9% of the skeleton’s genes did not match up with a reference human genome, and then of course, is the elongated skull.
While some have brushed off these inconsistencies as mere mutations, no scientist or doctor has yet been able to describe a mutation that could account for such unusual characteristics. "There is no known form of dwarfism that accounts for all of the anomalies seen in this specimen," Ralph Lachman, a professor emeritus at the UCLA School of Medicine, wrote in a report on the skeleton.
It seems entirely plausible that an extraterrestrial could have a large portion of ‘human DNA’ but with some differences, particularly if we consider the hypothesis of Intelligent Design . Couldn’t this then account for the 9% mismatch between the genes of the tiny hominid and those of the human genome? The questions surrounding this remarkable little created are far from answered.
