Saw this.

Quote:
The tiny “alien” humanoid that some have hailed as “proof of alien life” has been confirmed as human after extensive testing by Stanford University scientists.

The 6-inch-long skeleton, nicknamed “Ata,” was discovered in Chile’s Atacama Desert in 2003, and has been a source of intense speculation ever since. While some have claimed that the odd skeleton was that of a primate or aborted fetus, conspiracy theorists point to its elongated skull as proof that is it actually an alien that crash-landed on Earth.

However, researchers at Stanford University have conducted DNA testing that indicates the skeleton has earthly origins. The testers now believe that the tiny humanoid was 6 to 8 years old before it died,

Seriously WTF? 6 inches tall, 6-8 years old?

They do a DNA match and it matches 91% of the human sequence. Ummm, as someone pointed out in the comments section in the article, doesn't a chimp match 99%?

There's a photo and links to a documentary and another article.

Haven't heard about this case at all. However as quoted, a 91% nucleotide match to humans would identify the specimen as NOT being human.
A 9% difference would indicate a divergence that has existed for millions of years.
A 9% difference would not even make the specimen hominid.

Do you mean your name is quoted a 91% nucleotide match to humans would identify the specimen as NOT being human ?

Three brothers are now under arrest following the rescue of three women from a house in the United States after they were abducted between nine and 12 years ago.

The women were found alive and well at the house in Cleveland, Ohio, after a neighbour heard their screams for help

I'm gonna have to do more reading on this one, this quote from the article I find disturbing.

Quote:
"I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man's arms.

"Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway."


Shocked Confused

Great news, better than finding bodies.....

They must be strong to have lasted so long, hopefully they are left alone to recover in peace

TV news, internet, newspapers, magazines, TV talk show, book, film.
In that order.

The last one didn't,

And even if they do, they deserve whatever they get

These are people, you know, with feelings. Just because they are Americans, doesn't make them inhuman. Just like those poor little Indian girls....

Met a few yanks in my time, a lot of em I'd swap for a few Aussies I know.

There is good and bad everywhere.

These girls have obviously been used as sex toys and the devil knows what else.

I wish them well.

And I'm glad I'm not so jaded.

Peace be with us all

BANG!! Cop that! lol.

Back to the point, unbelievable story. I'm so sad though (actually teared up a little) that Amanda Berry's mum died in 2006, still searching for her daughter. So sad, that her Mum never got to see the day they found her little girl Crying or Very sad
