Do you believe that aliens exist? Are they out there waiting to be found by humans, or do you think that aliens are just part of science fiction? Read the story below and see if your opinion on extraterrestrial life will change.
Twelve years ago the remains of a mummified humanoid-called “Atacama Humanoid” aka “Ata” was discovered in Chile’s Atacama Desert.
It was found by a man named Oscar Munoz on October 19, 2003 when he was looking for historical artifacts in an abandoned town in Atacama Desert called La Noria.
Munoz found it near an abandoned church and it was wrapped in a white cloth. According to a local Chilean newspaper, it was ‘a strange skeleton no bigger than 15 cm’ or approximately 6 inches.
It had hard teeth and a bulging head…
The scaly body was dark in color and, unlike humans, it only had nine ribs (Later reports say it has ten).
Since the discovery, many people have speculated on the origin of the remains. They said that the bones were those of a monkey, an aborted fetus, or an alien.
But a documentary released in 2013 called Sirius revealed that the remains are in fact human.
The documentary shows how bone marrow was extracted from the specimen for a DNA test that was performed at Stanford University.
Dr. Steven Greer was the founder of the documentary and Disclosure Project, a research group whose goal is to expose the US government’s alleged knowledge of extraterrestrial life.
He explained, “After six months of research by leading scientists at Stanford University, the Atacama Humanoid remains a profound mystery. We traveled to Barcelona, Spain in late September 2012 to obtain detailed X Rays, CAT scans and take genetic samples for testing. 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.”
According to the scientists, it must be a mutation of a male human that lived from 6-8 years.
However, x-rays show the remarkable difference between a human fetus skeleton and the Atacama Humanoid’s skeletal structure.
Dr. Garry Nolan, director of stem cell biology at Stanford University‘s School of Medicine, performed the DNA tests. He said,”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. 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.”
He explained in the documentary: “‘The DNA tells the story and we have the computational techniques that allow us to determine, in very short order, whether, in fact, this is human.”
Many people have criticized that the Atacama Humanoid is a hoax. But Dr. Greer denied this allegation, saying “The CAT scan clearly shows internal chest organs – lungs and what appears to be the remains of a heart structure. There is absolutely no doubt that the specimen is an actual organism and that it is not a hoax of any kind. This fact has been confirmed by Dr. Nolan and Dr. Lachman at Stanford.”
See how the scientists performed the DNA test here:
“If the genetics continue to show a human connection to this humanoid, what does this mean? We cannot say the Atacama Humanoid is an ET. Nor is he any known – or clinically conceivable – human that could have lived. So who is he? He remains a mystery, and perhaps – just perhaps- a doorway to discovering much about who we are.”
