We’ve covered previous stories on the Sirius project, the Atacama alien and Lloyd Pye’s Starchild skull, even speaking with Dr. Garry Nolan. But here is an update on how a scientist volunteered to help investigate some weird mysteries.
Dr. Garry Nolan is a geneticist at the Stanford School of Medicine. He is among the mainstream scientists showing a willingness to review evidence of what some believe to be an extraterrestrial presence, as demonstrated in his work on Dr. Steven Greer’s Atacama Humanoid and the late Lloyd Pye’s Starchild Skull. Whatever we may make of Greer and his tactics, his inclination to include Nolan in the examination of Ata should be considered a most relevant and interesting turn of events within the UFO community.
In an effort to keep up with the ongoing saga, I recently emailed Dr. Nolan and asked if he would field a few questions for a blog post. He agreed.
Some of the highlights:
- A paper on the Atacama specimen is in the works.
The specimen has interesting mutations, but all mainstream genetics. Nothing more can be said at this point as we are going to let the academic review take its course.
- He mentions the caution that must be taken with DNA samples to distinguish contamination.
- He notes how HE reached out to both Steven Greer and Lloyd Pye, killing the notion that scientists are closed-minded and ignore weird findings. He wanted to participate.
- The Starchild skull is unique but fully human.
We had it examined with two high end instruments and by a noted bone specialist. While the skull is certainly unusual (no one can deny that), it also did not fall under the provenance of any known genetic syndromes (despite the skeptics online) according to local experts. So I think the Starchild group’s statements about that latter point are credible.
However, that doesn’t mean it’s not a NEW, purely human, syndrome that affected the skull structure of the deceased. According to the bone specialist he still felt it fell within the realm of “unusual, but still human”. He didn’t rule anything out, but he also didn’t suggest “not human”. Interpret that last statement with all due care.
Dr. Nolan, interestingly, notes the impression we also get from Pye’s followers of pushing their ideas too far. We’ve seen that here. I can’t even count how many followers have berated us for hiding the “Truth” about the Starchild skull. I don’t think they will ever accept the scientific viewpoint that is it strange but NOT alien.
That was very generous of Dr. Nolan to answer questions for Jack’s piece. We are grateful for the information and look forward to seeing a scientific opinion about these strange and anomalous specimens.
