Explain how his point is moot just because Pye is dead...

read everything there is to read on the Starchild Project website and if you have any problems understanding something come see me and maybe I can help, but first explain which diseases give you a new type of bone and also a different brain. would be simple if you were right but you're not so you can't and I won't expect you to stop flogging this dead horse claim of Pye being a fraud.
Archaeologists in Mexico have uncovered 25 “alien”-looking human skulls with in a cemetery in the northwest state of Sonora, they said today.
Some of the skulls showed “deformities,” said Cristina Garcia Moreno, who worked on the excavation project with Arizona State University, which analyzed the bones. The bones are about 1,000 years old, dating from 945 A.D. to 1308 A.D.
“This was an Hispanic cemetery with 25 skulls, and 13 of them have deformed heads,” Moreno told ABC News today. “We don’t know why this population specifically deformed their heads.”
Moreno said that scientists had found skulls in other parts of Mexico, including Guasave, south of Sonora that also showed similar deformities in certain groups of people. Scientists believe they put beams of wood on the front and back of individuals’ heads and wrapped the wood with bands to exert pressure on the skull, Moreno said.
“We know that in some parts of Mexico, people deformed their heads because they wanted to distinguish important people or they wanted to distinguish people from one group from another,” she said.
Moreno said that skulls like this had never before been found in Sonora, and that many of the skeletons in the cemetery were those of children.
I have always supported Dr Sweet in his belief that this was the skull of a 5-6 year old human child.
Carbon 14 Dating has shown the Human Skull to be 900 years old ± 40 years
the Starchild’s mitochondrial DNA was relatively easy to recover and showed it had a human mother
Dr Matthew Brown, a Dentist in London, made close-up x-rays images of the maxilla in September 2004. He states that the roots of unerupted teeth are consistent with those of a child who was about 4½ yrs old.
Dr David Hodges, a radiologist, stated that the suture lines were open and growing at the time of death. Dr.David Sweet, an internationally renowned forensic pathologist at the University of British Columbia, was of the opinion that the skull was that of a 5-6 year old, based upon the dentition in the right maxillary fragment
DNA testing in 1999 at BOLD (Bureau of Legal Dentistry), a forensic DNA lab in Vancouver, British Columbia found standard X and Y chromosomes in two samples taken from the skull, "conclusive evidence that the child was not only human (and male), but both of his parents must have been human as well, for each must have contributed one of the human sex chromosomes."
Further DNA testing in 2003 at Trace Genetics, which specializes in extracting DNA from ancient samples, isolated mitochondrial DNA from both recovered skulls. The child belongs to haplogroup C. Since mitochondrial DNA is inherited exclusively from the mother, it makes it possible to trace the offspring's maternal lineage. The DNA test therefore confirmed that the child's mother was a Haplogroup C human female. However, the adult female found with the child belonged to haplogroup A. Both haplotypes are characteristic Native American haplogroups, but the different haplogroup for each skull indicates that the adult female was not the child's mother.

I'm not avoiding anything, I'm doing exactly what you guys do: stick to my agenda. the only difference is my agenda is about the truth.
tell me one "actual truth" that proves Pye was a fraud or was trying to become a millionaire by defrauding people (he didn't die a rich man).
Explain how the brain is actually a human brain even though it is not.
Those are truths, nothing you've said has been.

are you aware of the FOXP2 gene of the skull? probably not because you keep harping on old news.
the craniofacial guy only knows his field and being a "credible scientist" can't go any further than where his expertise lies so I wouldn't expect him to come out of his comfort box. that's no proof of fraud or deception. What do you have to say about what he said concerning the morphology? oh that doesn't help your agenda, nevermind.
Remember, the maximum of variations in human mtDNA is 120. Neanderthals carry 200. The new hominins, Denisovans, carry 385. The Starchild extrapolates to 977!
