Tiny ‘Alien’ Skeleton in New Documentary (+Videos)

Tiny ‘alien’ skeleton: A tiny being purported to be an alien is actually a human, according to a medical professor.

“While the jury is out regarding the mutations that cause the deformity, and there is a real discrepancy in how we account for the apparent age of the bones … every nucleotide I’ve been able to look at is human,” researcher Garry Nolan, professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford School of Medicine, told LiveScience. “I’ve only scratched the surface in the analysis. But there is nothing that jumps out so far as to scream ‘nonhuman.'”

The tiny being is said by Nolan to be 6 to 8 years old, despite the remains being just 6 inches long. DNA analysis points to the mother being an indigenous woman from the Chilean area of South America, Nolan told LiveScience in an email. 

Steven Greer, a prominent UFO researcher, created the crowdfunded documentary “Sirius,” which features the tiny “alien” being.

The documentary premiered on April 22 but doesn’t appear to be playing in many if any theaters.

Greer insists that there is plenty of evidence of aliens, including the tiny being found in the Atacama Desert.

“What people need to understand is the secrecy around UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence really has nothing to do with ETs,” he said in a video statement that accompanies the film trailer. “It has to do with humans and the power that is resting in large corporations and financial interests that do not want you to know the truth.”

This is all happening as researchers and former government officials meet in Washington D.C. to discuss alien encounters

And there are still questions about the tiny specimen.

“There is no known form of dwarfism that accounts for all of the anomalies seen in this specimen,” Dr. Ralph Lachman, professor emeritus, UCLA School of Medicine, and clinical professor at Stanford University, wrote in a report to Nolan.
