RIC Editor’s Note: The media has gone to great lengths to downplay the importance of this discovery. They’re calling it ’human’ to diminish the discovery, pointing out that it’s not identifiably ’alien’. In fact, this finding is amazing.
The professor of microbiology and immunology, Gary Nolan, who did the research by extracting bone marrow and running DNA tests stated the lifeform was ’closer’ to human than chimps are. But being ’close’ to humans genetically doesn’t MAKE one human - just ask the chimps!
Some speculate that this hominid is a ’perfect storm’ of genetic malfunctions and mutations, but that is only a speculation at this point. Technically, it has not been proven that this isn’t a different type of hominidae. More research must be done before the gloves can be taken off.
’Sirius’ Documentary Reveals DNA Test Results On Ata, The ’6-Inch Alien’
The mummified remains of what looks like a 6-inch space alien has turned "Sirius" into the most eagerly awaited documentary among UFO enthusiasts.
The findings, however, might come as a disappointment.
In early publicity, filmmakers claimed the documentary would reveal that the DNA of the creature with an oversized alien-looking head couldn’t be medically classified.
In fact, the film, which premiered Monday in Hollywood, features a scientist who concluded the little humanoid was human.
"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,"said Garry Nolan, director of stem cell biology at Stanford University’s School of Medicine in California.
"The DNA tells the story and we have the computational techniques that allows us to determine, in very short order, whether, in fact, this is human," Nolan, who performed the DNA tests, explains in the film.
"Sirius" focuses on the remains of the small humanoid, nicknamed Ata, that was discovered in Chile’s Atacama Desert 10 years ago and has, literally, gone through different hands and ownership since then.
The film also explores an ongoing grassroots movement to get the U.S. government to reveal what it reportedly knows about UFOs, extraterrestrials and the availability of advanced alternative energy technologies that could greatly benefit everyone on Earth.
The primary force behind "Sirius" is Steven Greer, a former emergency room doctor who founded the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) and The Disclosure Project.
One of the leading theories going into the DNA testing was that Ata may have been an unborn fetus. But, even that turned out to be incorrect, according to Nolan’s surprising (or not, depending on your point of view) conclusions of his investigation.
"The sequence that we got from the mitochondria [energy factories of cells] tells us with extremely high confidence that the mother was an indigenous Indian from the Chilean area. The other thing that immediately fell out of the analysis is that it’s male. It probably died in the last century, if I were to make a guess."
Nolan concedes he entered this study thinking that DNA was the answer, but then realized there were other biology questions about Ata that still needed to be understood and answered. He plans to eventually publish his findings after more analysis.
