Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

"Mysterious", "non-terrestrial" being

It first came to the Internet spotlight some years ago, in 2004. And now, it’s back, slightly restored, though with a missing jawbone and what was left of its left leg.

Then, as now, we point that despite the claims of its owners, everything suggests it’s just the case of a poor child with hydrocephalus and other congenital malformations. Several MDs consulted say the same, and MD Paulo Bandarra even suggested the image of another poor child with the same disease in very similar proportions. This montage shows the similarities.

This Brazilian case echoes the more widely known — and explored — Starchild skull, another infant with hydrocephalus, despite the wild claims of its promoter.

And it’s just one of many unfortunate cases where children, who suffered from deformities so severe they caused their death, are being explored as “alien beings” in ufology. Mexican researcher Luis Ruiz Noguez has a compilation of these “baby aliens”, in Spanish, which begins with the clear warning that:

“Among all the photographs of alleged extraterrestrials, the lowest ones are those that present children with several kinds of deformities“.

    It might probably be a mistake to label the ‘Starchild Skull’ as the remains of a Hydrocephalic, as it does not truly conform to the patterns of that disease in detail, and has a number of other anomalous features that aren’t fully explained by that hypothesis. It is undoubtedly some other form of entirely human deformity, but the jury is out.

    It is a difficult and rocky discussion area. I remember similar arguments being brought up about the Homo Floriensis cranial remains, that it was an hydrocephalic pygmy. This summary dismissal was rather undermined by the discovery of a secondary set of mandibles exhibiting the same dental abnormalities as that belonging to the ‘deformed’ cranium. Likelihood of a diseased individual was thus dramatically lessened, as the chances of two such individuals being found in the same site at similar strata is not tenable.

    The newer remains here on display I’ve never seen before. One awaits more examinations from experts, but there seems no reason to think it is anything but a sadly deformed human being.

    I believe that if DNA shows it was human then 1 of 2 things are possible. 1- It was a human being with severe abnormalities or 2- It was a hybrid alien-human and DNA would show it was human because it indeed was…but also alien and maybe just maybe, the differences between us are not detectable, at least by todays sciences. 100 years ago we didn’t know what DNA even looked like…in 100 more, who knows where we’ll be and what new technologies will reveal to us.

    It is not an alien, it is a baby that suffered from hydrocephalism, an illness that means that there is water on the brain, making the plates of the skull spread and the head swell.

    believe me, if the aliens arrive, the whole planet will know about it. the truth is they haven’t yet….

    It’s funny that everyone believes DNA results to prove skeletal remains are human but the second DNA results prove remains are not human you no longer believe in DNA results. We can’t use photos, we can’t use any person’s testimony of a sighting or experience of any kind and now we can’t use DNA as proof either. That works out great for all of you skeptics , doesn’t it.
