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 best evidence we have says this corpse was years old at the time of death.
I see, so basically the bones were still affected in a way that the density of them overestimated the age. His articles have appeared in dozens of publications in the U.
September 21, at 4: Erm, the skull has no fused sutures. However, the specimen is mummified and there is a well recognised issue with getting accurate ages of mummified infants using this technique.
DNA testing continues and is not complete concludes by stating further research is needed: For that matter how can any mineral get into cartilage in mummified remains other than from the embalming ingredients? Humaniod About Why Science? July 2, humxnoid 4: The calcification seems to humajoid mainly external and not adding substance to the bones.
This has probably been going on for many years. We shouldn’t stop a search when we’ve found the first relevant mutation; indeed there might be many others also involved. The hole in the cranium is definitely where they sampled from as I have since seen images of the specimen from before the sampling for DNA testing and the hole is absent.
Therefore, if there is a genetic basis for the symptoms observed in the specimen the casual mutation aacama are not apparent at this level of resolution and at this stage of the analysis. It is rare that I hear someone who is so logical and atacamw as you are. The specimen was found in a town with abandoned nitrate mines, and exposure to nitrates might have caused the mutations.
In fact, some would say it looks, well, alien. That is no fetus. You cannot know if uhmanoid remaining percent is degraded or not. He fed due to the influx of birds to his planet.

Or what needs to be done is have Ata re-studied, this time by a qualified scientist who is familiar with mummified remains. So what your saying is the baby was mummified in the womb? May 4, at 7: September 2, at 2: The remains have an irregularly shaped skull and a total of 10 ribs as opposed to 12 for adult humans and potential signs of oxycephaly.
He also said above it was dumped in the desert, and mummified. Did you read the reference I linked to on the analysis of the mummified infant?
Nolan in Washington DC in October, The limited literature atacqma abortion among native Chileans indicates that use of a herbal mixture that induces miscarriage is common and that a ceremony may take place for the aborted foetus.
Putting it out there in the ruins makes sense. Hard evidence beats theory every time. This fact has been confirmed by Dr.
Are you emotionally invested in this idea? March 20, at This meant DNA would still be intact and could be retrieved for study. Avatars by Sterling Adventures. In the fall ofscientists were given an opportunity to study Ata via x-rays, CAT scans, and genetic sampling. As that is the most reasonable interpretation of the data to this point, how do you make sense of the Atacama skeleton?

I probably watch too much Sci-Fi; but, what if something within the thing has been activated? As soon as there is some robust evidence to the contrary I will be less certain about my identification, but since my identification accounts for all of the observed physical features of the specimen and the expected complications of analysis due to mummification, without the need to invoke a suite of unknown medical conditions, I think it is by far the most robust hypothesis.
Greer is presenting that radiologists seem certain that the bone density atacamx significantly more than what could be present in a fetus. May 26, humanod 9: Greg May 2, at A comparison of fetus X Rays shows wtacama remarkable difference between human fetus skeletal development and the X Rays of the Atacama humanoid. I hope humaonid clarifies things for you. May 10, at 8: The good recovery of DNA suggests that the specimen is probably no more than a couple of decades old at most. The team make no mention of the bone density artefacts recognised as being associated with mummified remains in any of their reports.
They are doing entirely too much promotion and are somewhat invested in this project. This was the only place ataccama the web I could find the actual backstory and scientific analysis of the skeleton.
Embalming is the name given to the process of preserving a corpse by artificial means and that process can be conducted in a wide variety of ways, most of which focus on dehydrating the soft tissues using chemical or physical processes such as introduction of formaldehyde or freeze-drying.
What evidence would you need to see in order to consider Ata not a fetus? Tech Humxnoid Gadget Mission: The DNA evidence is strange, on that we can agree.
