BREAKTHROUGH IN DNA RECOVERY TECHNOLOGY:
What It Means For The Starchild
Since we first began testing the Starchild scientifically, our ultimate goal has been to recover and sequence its nuclear DNA. Only then, by "reading" the DNA of both its parents, can we be certain of its genetic heritage. However, until now we've been thwarted because the chemical "primers" used in DNA recovery could never "locate" the Starchild's nuclear DNA. In seven attempts, not one "pickup" was made. This is a strong indication (but not yet an inarguable proof) that the Starchild's nuclear DNA is not entirely human.
Now, however, the stalemate can be resolved. A few months ago scientists in the US and Germany announced their ability to sequence the Neanderthal genome within the next two years. This will use new, extremely cutting edge technology whose principle breakthrough is that it no longer requires primers. It can reassemble a genome literally piece-by-piece, base pair-by-base pair. Consequently, our geneticists tell us that sometime in 2008 they should be able to use this new technology to recover a large part of the Starchild's nuclear DNA. This exciting and potentially historic development means we should finally be able to definitively determine if the Starchild is, as we strongly suspect, something other than entirely human.
MORGELLONS: What we know and what we don't. Could this be the cause of the Fibers in the Starchild bone?

Oh Poop on a scoop. I will be in Australia between the 11/23 - 05/12 and will miss it.

Hard to believe i know but we do have cable in Australia complete with National Geographic channel. Its true, we even have telephones now!!
