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.

He mentions the ribs. People will believe anything but the truth. DNA testing continues and is not complete concludes by stating further research is needed:.

Genetic tests reveal tragic reality of Atacama ‘alien’ skeleton | Science | The Guardian

Nolan has found that: The skeleton looks vaguely human, but is just six inches long. The Atacama desert is a massive salt pan, so the specimen would have been exposed to salts during mummification. Lachman concluded the humanoid lived to be 6- 8 years of age. And let the real scientist do the science. But, again, Ata was not embalmed. Keep in mind the Ata fetus atcama squeezed in a cloth. How many mummified foetuses has you seen?

They completely dismissed it at first because of how disturbing it was.

Somewhat mirroring the final views expressed by Navia-Osorio, we must also remember that, even if the mummy in question were to be found to be anything other than a atzcama, this alone would not prove its extraterrestrial origin. I hope that clarifies things for you. The results suggest that the remains belonged to a child who likely had genetic mutations resulting in a bone disorder that caused the unexpected form.


August 25, at 5: Nolan said he and his colleagues never believed it atacamw be an alien. Meanwhile the fetus that was once at peace is now being unceremoniously tossed about by untrained and unprofessional shysters looking for a payday are desecrating the remains of a poor soul who did not survive.

Researchers Solve the Mystery of the Atacama ‘Alien’ Mummy

What is needed from this point going forward is an open mind so that, together, we may discover the truth about many things yet hidden. That would be quite a claim with zero evidence to suggest it. I agree that Dr Lachman is eminently more qualified than me to comment on paediatrics and dysplasia, but not on mummified remains.

Speaking as a clinician, I, atafama well as other doctors with whom I have spoken, doubt it would have lived 6 hours. The widespread speculation surrounding Ata brought the case to the attention of Gary Nolan, senior author humanood the new study and professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford University.

March 1, at 7: The most abundant mineral in the desert is silcon in sand.

Also, no genetic indicators of dwarfism have been identified yet. July 4, at 1: Excellent work as always, Antonio.

There are other parts of the skull where a hook may have been inserted, causing the cranial deformation seen, such as through a fontanelle, but this is hard to confirm from the images available, so this makes the case for an abortion using a hook less likely.

What do you get out of denying the facts and trying to shut down the debate? The use of a hook for extracting the fetus might very well have pulled the head clean off.

With your skills in analyzing bones and general knowledge in the field I wonder if you might jump into the discussion on this one? Would be great to do experiments with bodies of some animals putting those in various environments and see afterwards what happens with cartilage. You are commenting using your WordPress.
