Hate to say I told you so but ...

The Starchild Skull was confirmed to be 100% human.

thefieldreportscom.wordpress.com...

According to the report:
" However, no modern comparison samples were submitted with this batch from the archaeologists or any other individual who may have handled the sample and potentially contaminated it. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that these profiles are authentic and not a previous handler."

In other words, the lab could not rule out the possibility of prior contamination of the samples tested by human handling. Given the provenance of the skull and the amount of handling it has received, this weakness totally invalidates the conclusions of the lab that the skull is that of a male human. A proper scientific response - as opposed to a knee-jerk reaction - must be that no scientific conclusion can be drawn from the tests because they could not rule out the possibility of contamination.

They did more than test DNA which was already proven twice to be human.

I did a search and can't find what you quoted in the source I listed. Where did you see it?

The combination of replication, fragment sizes obtained, procedures in place for laboratory sterilization and elimination of Paleo-DNA Laboratory DNA profiles suggest the results are authentic and not contamination.

Controls were run at every step of the analysis and gave expected results. The above profiles do not match any staff member or laboratory user at the PaleoDNA Laboratory, past or present.


You completely misrepresent what the report says. All it says is that Pye let people touch the skull and they have no samples for those people to test against. But it would require someone of the same haplogroup to be the contaminator, contaminating every single sample taken by multiple labs in multiple places where contamination is almost impossible. So it is not 100% certain just close to it, and certain enough they believe there is no contamination. Coupled with every other test done showing 100% human .. yeah sorry this is a dead horse. 100% human.
