A DNA mutation isn't proof that it's aliens/extra-terrestrials. All they've found is proof that this child's skull had abnormal DNA. DNA mutations are pretty common, some people are even born with 3 chromosomes. A mutation on the mitochondrial DNA is even less significant. Mitochondrial DNA doesn't do much. So a mutation of mitochondrial DNA isn't proof of anything.
You all should take a logic class. DNA mutation does not equal proof of aliens.
PRELIMINARY DNA FINDINGS 2010 In Brief: A modified "shotgun" DNA recovery technique has been successfully used to recover coherent segments of the Starchild Skull's nuclear DNA. Of the (approx.) 3 billion base pairs in the skull's genome, many thousands have been recovered. These nuclear DNA fragments have been analyzed by the National Institutes of Health BLAST program, and a substantial percentage of that DNA has "no significant similarity" to any DNA previously found on Earth. These results have been verified and repeated; however, much more DNA needs to be recovered and analyzed before a formal report can be completed.
that are based upon YOUR presumptions
The folks that were burned or hung for being heretics because they had solid evidence that the earth was not the center of the universe seemed to have plenty of reason to fear...
You yourself have admitted in this thread that we haven't figured out half of the skull's dna yet (it was on page 2).

I don't believe this is an alien hybrid skull either; as others have said it can be difficult to produce offspring from matings of even very similar species, yet alone two species that would be even less similar than the most distantly related animals on this planet. Some related species can produce offspring and others that are seemingly just as similar to each other cannot even produce viable progeny. If that apparently minute genetic difference is too great, the offspring are stillborn, or, if they survive birth at all they don't live very long and have severe health issues.
The other thing to consider is this - say that an alien race has indeed visited us before, beings that are far beyond us in physical evolution and technological advance - then why on earth would they want to breed (even if in a test tube) with a relatively primitive species like us? That would be like us wanting to breed ourselves with monkeys. You'd have the Island of Dr. Moreau on a cosmic scale, at least from their perspective. I can't imagine that they would be looking at us as mates but rather as lesser beings, whether they would just want to study us like animals or wage war on us.

We have all heard of the star child skull and up untill now there has many problems with recovering the full DNA for testing but that has all changed and is great news for everyone here at ATS
Article link and quote below:
''This past weekend I met with the geneticist working on the Starchild's DNA. He explained how he can now prove the Starchild is not entirely human, which has been our position for years. Now it is no longer a question of "if," but of "when" and "how" we spread this astounding new reality beyond the mailing list. First, though, let me bring the list's newcomers up to speed.
In 2003 we had a DNA analysis that used human-only primers to recover the Starchild's mitochondrial DNA, the DNA outside the nucleus, which comes from the mother and her genetic line. That meant its mother was human. But we could not recover its nuclear DNA, which comes from both mother and father, which meant its father was not a human. Unfortunately, with the recovery technology of 2003 we couldn't prove what he was, which left us in scientific limbo. The "no result" from the search for the nuclear DNA clearly meant Dad wasn't human, but we could not prove that fact beyond all possible doubt.
Now, in 2010, there have been many improvements in the recovery process, and those improvements have been applied to the Starchild skull with the stunning result you see below. This is a gel sheet that shows a clear recovery of its nuclear DNA, which could not be done in 2003. ''

There are many more Skulls,, like this one, in the story...
I personally know of testing going on RIGHT NOW,, from NEW Samples taken 2 weeks ago..
