Steven Greer’s Atacama Alien: Ripley Wouldn’t Believe It Either

In the latest twist to the Steven Greer disclosure shell game (hat tip to BK), Greg Newkirk of the Who Forted? blog and Lee Spiegel of the Huffington Post (photo credit for the image below) have produced evidence that Robert Ripley of Ripley’s Believe it Or Not fame had found a 6.5-inch “alien” he called “Atta-boy” (Ripley’s specimen was from Peru, not Atacama, the region from which Greer’s “alien” hails, so the phonetic similarity is coincidental).     Ripley of course believe the specimen to be a mummified human. That’s still where my money is, since the 91% of the...

Robert Ripley: A More Honest Showman Than Steven Greer

I just blogged this over at UFO Religions so I thought I’d reproduce this here. >> In the latest twist to the Steven Greer ET disclosure shell game (hat tip to BK), Greg Newkirk of the Who Forted? blog and Lee Spiegel of the Huffington Post (photo credit for the image below) have produced evidence that Robert Ripley of Ripley’s Believe it Or Not fame had found a 6.5-inch “alien” he called “Atta-boy” (Ripley’s specimen was from Peru, not Atacama, Chile, the region from which Greer’s “alien” hails, so the phonetic similarity seems coincidental).     Ripley of course believe the specimen to be a...

Dr. Gary Nolan on the Atacama Specimen and the Starchild Skull

Jack Brewer has posted a recent email exchange with Dr. Gary Nolan, the Stanford scientist who conducted the DNA work on the alleged “Atacama alien.” It’s readable and interesting, and so I recommend it to my readers. Some key statements by Dr. Nolan: The specimen has interesting mutations, but all mainstream genetics. As to the utility of DNA I am ambivalent. It’s so easy to contaminate DNA or misinterpret the results. Dr. Nolan has also examined the “Starchild” skull. Jack Brewer included that topic as part of his interview. Again, interesting comments from Dr. Nolan: I reached out to...

The Atacama Mummified Human Fetus … er, Alien

Yesterday I blogged about the upcoming Citizen’s Hearing for Disclosure. Trust me when I say I’m hoping something substantive comes of it. Stephen Bassett has assembled a lot of people I’d consider credible (but I wouldn’t say that about everyone on the witness list). Also fast approaching (April 22) is the Sirius world premier that is the centerpiece of Steven Greer’s “Sirius Disclosure” project. Greer is a high profile researcher.  He’s controversial even within the ufological camp.1 I tend to appreciate his efforts to garner witnesses and documentation, but to not trust him when it comes to his claims...

Atacama Human-Not-Alien Specimen Update

Thanks go to Cris Putnam for sending this link my way today. It’s from the Stanford Daily . . . as in Stanford University . . . as in that place that employs Dr. Garry Nolan, the guy who did the DNA analysis of the Atacama “alien”. The story once again has both Dr. Nolan and Dr. Ralph Lachman, a specialist in dwarfism affirming that the specimen is human. What’s different this time is that Lachman offers some hypotheses for the size and apparent age incongruence. For me the take-away portion is as follows: Lachman subsequently investigated several similar...
