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.

They attempt to distance themselves from possible ethical missteps by largely claiming ignorance about the handling of the remains, the circumstances of the discovery, and noting that they were presented with roughly a cubic millimeter of bone to analyze. In the best case atacaa remains as an unclassified species and is a cryptozoological oddity.
It sounds like the guy who found it was a grave robber. A scientific aatcama you point out, would simplify and clarify things once and for all. I understand your position that mummification increases bone density, I wonder if there are any analytical comparisons as to the quantity of increase that takes place as Dr.
To date, the DNA data cannot explain these perplexing findings. If so, what made you become one? This also affects the intervertebral discs. Paolo, Stanford University physicians examined the remains and X-rays and found there to be growth plates in the long bones, and some humanoiid teeth, showing it was not a fetus. What I am saying is pretty clear — Ata is mummified due to desiccation given the arid environment.
January 9, at The main issue that atacamz seem unable to grasp is that mummified tissues differ from fresh tissues, making the epiphyseal standards applied inapplicable in this case.
At one time in your development, you were a fetus too. They should really work on the GPS in those things…. To pursue science is to pursue the truth of matters. August 1, at 9: Also worth noting is there is no known abnormality that produces 10 ribs in humans. In this case the age estimate provided by Dr. With your skills in analyzing bones and general knowledge in the field I wonder if you might humanois into the discussion on this one?
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 old. Ralph Lachman, also of Stanford University, suggested precisely which X Rays and CT scan images would be needed for proper evaluation of the skeletal anomalies.
September 20, at August 25, at It may therefore be impossible to distinguish between abortion and natural miscarriage as a cause.
September 28, at The fetus was actually found in a graveyard next to a church in an abandoned town, so it might have been a miscarriage.
May 27, at 1: Thank you for a very good read. Indigenous people often make dolls out of various materials either for religious rites or burial ceremonies. People will believe anything but the truth. August 25, at 5: May 20, at 6: I cannot believe in this day and age this specimen has completely perplexed the humqnoid and medical communities.
September 21, at 3: Although the mutations found within the genes are known to cause bone disease, some of them had not been previously connected to growth or developmental disorders.
Researchers Solve the Mystery of the Atacama ‘Alien’ Mummy
No dude, no clue where you got that. From DNA extracted from the bones, they found that Ata was a girl who carried mutations in at least seven genes that are known to cause major skeletal malformations or accelerate their development. I am assuming the former option, which is simple and entirely excusable human error, over the latter, which is dishonest and inexcusable. You have no grounds whatsoever to claim the ribs were pulled into a post-fetal position by the stretching of the skin, yet you claim it as fact.
In March Nolan published additional results, stating that the fetus had a rare bone aging disorder, as well as other genetic mutations in genes associated with dwarfism, scoliosis, and abnormalities in the muscles and skeleton.
Such speculation lead to Ata’s inclusion in the U. I never thought so few people knew so much about about so many strange bones!
Who the are you to disagree otherwise? Skeleton of foetus with estimated age of weeks. I remember the magician and sceptic James Randi telling Benveniste in the case of the homeopathic dilutions in I want to believe that any atacamq doctor can identify a fetus and its age; otherwise I have fully lost faith for the field.

And all of this in service to the notion that Ata was a fetus. You know what, this is one of the things that really annoys me about the Sirius bunch. All of the medical experts that have examined the X-rays humanoie CAT scans have concluded because of calcification and joint platelets the child is between 6 to 8 years old.
December 30, at 9: April 26, at What life was like for a medieval leper. Lachman and the examination by Dr.
