In 2003, scientists found a strange skeleton in the Atacama Desert. It is too small and deformed to be human, yet too humanoid to be anything else – unless, as ufologists claim, it is the first hard evidence of alien visitors to Earth.
It was hailed as proof of alien life, a mummified visitor from another planet.
Ten years after the remains of a six-inch ‘space alien’ were first discovered, they have been confirmed as ‘human’ by Stanford scientists in a new documentary film Sirius.
Since the remains of the small humanoid – known as the ‘Atacama Humanoid’ and nicknamed Ata – were discovered in Chile’s Atacama Desert 10 years ago there has been much speculation about its origins.
Theories have included that the bones were those of an aborted fetus, or a monkey, or even an alien that had crash-landed on earth.
‘After six months of research by leading scientists at Stanford University, the Atacama
Humanoid remains a profound mystery,’ said physician and Disclosure Project founder Dr. Steven Greer.
‘We traveled to Barcelona Spain in late September 2012 to obtain detailed X Rays, CAT
scans and take genetic samples for testing at Stanford University.
‘We obtained excellent DNA material by surgically dissecting the distal ends of two right
anterior ribs on the humanoid.
‘These clearly contained bone marrow material, as was seen on the dissecting microscope that was brought in for the procedure,’
A DNA sample from bone marrow extracted from the specimen, was analyzed by scientists at a prestigious American university.
They concluded that it was an ‘interesting mutation’ of a male human that had survived post-birth for between six and eight years.
‘I can say with absolute certainty that it is not a monkey.
‘It is human – closer to human than chimpanzees. It lived to the age of six to eight,’ said Garry Nolan, director of stem cell biology at Stanford University’s School of Medicine in California.
‘Obviously, it was breathing, it was eating, it was metabolizing.
‘It calls into question how big the thing might have been when it was born.’
