Well, I guess it doesn't say with 100% certainty that the thing is of an extraterrestrial origin, but I would say if the data is correct there's a good 95% chance this thing is not completely terrestrial in nature. It's not extremely old, and it appears to resemble a primate. The degree to which it differs genetically compared to other Earth primates, including ourselves, is just beyond any rational answer as I see it. The only way I can really see how to explain why it is so different from Earth primates is that it isn't from Earth.
Ok i follow...
But how is it that what you say
says its NOT earth originated?

I'll wait until someone with a stronger background in genetics takes a look at this as Pye has misunderstood and misrepresented results every step of the way.
Hydrocephaly is often suggested as the cause of the unusual parietal bossing (bulging of the bones at the rear sides of the skull) in the Starchild Skull. It is a condition where an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the cranium causes an increase in internal pressure that pushes outward against the skull, giving it an unusual "inflated" shape. A 2004 study led by Dr. Ted Robinson concluded that the Starchild Skull morphology is not the result of Hydrocephaly. Hydrocephaly indiscriminately expands the skull starting at the softest areas--the unfused sutures. The Starchild Skull's sutures were open and healthy at the time of death, meaning that if any internal pressure was present in the cranium it would have expanded first at the suture lines. But the expansion in the Starchild Skull, while symmetrical, is present only in the solid bone plates of the parietals. In fact, there is a pronounced dent at the sagittal suture--as impossible in a Hydrocephalic as it is to blow up a round balloon while leaving a dent down the middle. In addition, Hydrocephaly does not cause natural flattening of the occipital, shallowing and realignment of the eye sockets, compression of the bone, or any of the other abnormal features present in the Starchild Skull.
In humans, mutations of FOXP2 cause a severe speech and language disorder.
There are a large number of genetic syndromes and metabolic disorders associated with megalencephaly; thus, a careful neurologic and physical exam is required in all children presenting with megalencephaly.

So can you guys enlighten me
to WHY this WOULDNT be
Even IF its NOT human, what
makes it NON terrestrial....
One could assume the mother of such a defective primate bathed in a pool of radioactive waste. The number of differences in the FOXP2 gene are so high that if they were defects the thing would never have been born in the first place, and it certainly would have come out looking much worse than that. It'd be like randomly jumbling the sequences and expecting it to come out alive. Just not going to happen.
Given the abnormalities of the "Starchild" has anyone considered the differences in the FOXP2 gene are the result of naturally occurring genetic mutations in FOXP2?
