Human- Alien Hybrid?

Postby Ariel » Thu Mar 05, 2009 10:59 pm

The Starchild scull is an actual scull that has been tested by specialists and scientists. What did they find?

Man, that child is ugly and in need of a punch in the face to wipe that stupid expression off its face. If the star children decended I wouldn't be supprised if we slayed them all just so we wouldnt have to look at those stupid faces filled with wonder and tenderness. (xenophobe)

Good haul though, Ariel. I'm going to wait it out and watch the entire 12 tonight. I love this uncommon interest proffessor stuff one finds on youtube. We should make the "uncommon interest proffessor stuff" thread ;)

There is the possibility that it is a severe congenital abnormality, which is actually more likely. For a human to mate with a alien and produce off-spring that is viable they would have to be very closely related, like Donkeys and Horses. You would have to believe that the aliens that are meant to be from another planet are closely related to us.

The thing is people who believe that Aliens are interbreeding with humans, use these sort of finds as proof that interbreeding has happened. They dismiss any other explanation that could be the true answer.

The Starchild Project is a project to promote this skull as a Human- Alien Hybrid. It is promote by Lloyd Pye and Mark Bean.

Here is an explanation from The New England Skeptical Society:

But I do not take their �unexplainable� claim at face value. The authors never directly consider congenital hydrocephalus as a possible explanation, although they dismiss it along with a long list of natural deformities. Hydrocephalus literally means �water on the brain,� and results from a blockage in the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from where it is made inside the brain to the space surrounding the brain and spinal cord where it is reabsorbed. As a result of the blockage, CSF builds up inside the brain, pushing outward on the brain and skull. Because in young children the bones of the skull have not yet fused together, the skull is free to enlarge to accommodate this buildup of fluid.

If a child suffered from untreated hydrocephalus until age four or five, their skull would display distortions in almost every feature. All of the proper bones, prominences, holes, and sutures would be present, as they are in the Starchild skull, but they would be deformed and displaced. This is exactly what we find in the Starchild skull.

Hydrocephalus builds up over time, so a child with this disorder could survive several years, and if untreated (today hydrocephalus is treatable with surgery to drain the fluid) would probably die at several years of age. The resulting large bulbous head would be vaguely reminiscent of the typical image of a gray alien.

The authors virtually ignore this mundane explanation, and dismiss it on unsound grounds. They also go to great lengths to interpret the skull in line with their clearly preferred hypothesis. They therefore demonstrate the central feature of pseudoscience � starting with a desired conclusion and then working backwards from there, rather than following logic and evidence wherever it leads.


AS for it being part Alien:

What about their confident prediction that DNA testing will prove the child was alien? Well, a DNA sample was taken from the skull, and was subjected to DNA probes designed to detect sequences of DNA that are unique to humans (performed by Dr. David Sweet, Director of the Bureau of Legal Dentistry at the University of British Columbia)5. The Starchild skull DNA was found to contain both an X and a Y chromosome. This is conclusive evidence that the child was not only human (and male), but both of his parents must have been human as well, for each must have contributed one of the human sex chromosomes.

They already took into account that it could be a deformed child but ruled that out. Might not turn out to be anything, but sure is interesting in the meantime. They have not yet finished testing things.

" Dr. Bachynsky noted that there is no evidence of erosion of the inner table of the skull. Such erosion would be consistent with a diagnosis of hydrocephaly, so this condition can safely be ruled out as a cause of the abnormalities expressed. Hydrocephaly also causes a widening of the sutures, again not expressed here. There was consensus agreement to both of these observations by other experts conversant with these features."

"There is no asymmetrical warping or irregular thinning that is the hallmark of typical human deformity.

"In short, it seems to be not only unique in my personal experience, but also unique throughout the past history of worldwide study of craniofacial abnormalities. This is significant."

You can't rule out a deformed child, you can rule out known deformities, but you can't rule out unknown deformities, the skull is meant to be 900 years old, the child could have had some deformity that we don't know about.

The fact is it has a X and a Y chromosome, to me that indicates human. Since it is human, it must have been deformed to look like that.
