The Starchild Skull The Starchild Skull
is a genuine 900-year-old bone skull found by a tourist in Mexico in the 1930s.
It was dismissed as a routine deformity and kept by a private collector for
nearly 70 years. In 1998, the skull was acquired by Ray and Melanie Young. As a
neo-natal nurse, Melanie immediately realized that this was no ordinary skull.
In 1999, the Youngs
teamed with Lloyd Pye to form the Starchild Project,
an informal organization that would arrange for independent
scientific testing of the skull by multiple labs and experts. The results
uncovered by the research team ruled out all known physical deformities,
and presented the scientific community with a genetic and
physical profile never before seen on Earth.
DNA findings in 2011 indicate the Starchild Skull is extremely
variant from human genetic norms. What remains is to determine whether
that means it is “foreign to normal human genetics within the
framework that subject is currently understood,” or
“definitely not from planet Earth, i.e., an alien”…. or something in between.
