This is a very touchy subject, and regardless of whether you believe in aliens or not, you SHOULD be looking for a terrestrial explanation. We can
prove that it is terrestrial fairly easily, but proving otherwise would be much more difficult. This is because multiple studies of the specimen must
be undertaken, and the results must all conclude the same thing. It doesn't look like any reputable organizations are interested in pursuing this at
the moment, at least to my knowledge.
It is possible that the skull came from some extinct race that has yet to be mapped via DNA, but there are problems with this hypothesis. 900 years is
not very long ago, especially on evolutionary terms. Remember that the two bodies were found, one holding on the arm of the other. This leads me to
believe that the Starchild skull wasn't an ancient skull that was subsequently discovered and reburied 900 years ago. I think it is obvious to most
where I am going with this idea, so I will move on.
Another problem is the fact that despite all of the various races of the human species found around the globe, they remain relatively similar in
certain aspects, and some of these characteristics are not found on the skull in question. What does this mean? Could it be a genetic disease that has
since been eradicated? That is the best idea I can come up with at this time, but it is probably wrong, and I also do not believe it.
Another problem is that no other similar specimens have been found. This is strange in my opinion, considering the heavy archaeological excavations
over centuries in the surrounding areas, and if there were a population of this unknown race I would expect that more would have been found. This
lends credence to the deformities being caused by some type of disease, however there are no known human diseases that can account for all of the
oddities found in the Starchild skull. There is no way around that in my opinion.
If it were a genetic disease, even an old one, I would have expected there to be more than one specimen found, considering that ascending generations
would have inherited it. This may not be the case if it were very old, as we know that there are very few remains found of extremely old species,
which may mean that this skull was not human, but from a different species. The problem with this idea however is that it is not old enough.
Just with the evidence I have described above, a picture starts to form. Now let it be known that I am very skeptical of the idea that aliens are or
have been visiting Earth, but I am able to put my biases aside when searching for an answer, but I will still vociferously attempt to exhaust all
terrestrial scientific explanations before even considering a conclusion that involves aliens.
The picture that starts to form tells me that the evidence is conflicting. I do not know exactly how to interpret this, but it would lead me in one
particular direction, and this direction must be thoroughly pursued before going ANY further. That direction is that of a hoax. I do not mean that the
skull is a hoax, but that the results of the tests are not entirely accurate...This could be a deliberate hoax, OR more likely, a testing error
somewhere along the way.
I know that some may not want to hear this, but it needs to be eliminated if you wish to strengthen your case. There must be multiple independent
tests carried out on this specimen. I would like to bring up the fact that the amount of money being sought to carry out these tests is quite
substantial, which also needs to be explored. Is it this costly to perform these types of tests? If the answer is yes, then fine, I have no problems
with that. However, if this is not the case, I would think that someone knows the end is near and wishes to cash out.
Please note that I am not saying this is the case definitively, but again, ALL avenues need to be explored if we wish to get to the bottom of this
mystery. This is the only way cases like this can be solved...by the process of elimination. If multiple independent confirmations of the legitimacy
of the skull via dna testing can be produced, that would be great. But even if this is the case, the other possibilities will still have to be
Sorry if I missed anything, or if I overlooked flaws in my logic, but I really do believe that what I am saying is the best way to proceed, and is the
