Lloyd Pye Update: We finally have a recovery of nuclear DNA from the Starchild skull
have a recovery of nuclear DNA from the Starchild!
This past weekend
I met with the geneticist working on the Starchild's
DNA. He explained how he can now prove the Starchild is not entirely
human, which has been our position for years. Now it is no longer a
question of "if," but of "when"
and "how" we spread this astounding new reality beyond the mailing
list. First, though, let me bring the list's newcomers up to speed.
2003 we had a DNA
analysis that used human-only primers to recover the Starchild's
mitochondrial DNA, the DNA outside
the nucleus, which comes from the mother and her genetic line. That
meant its mother was human. But we could not recover its nuclear DNA,
comes from both mother and father, which meant its father
was not a human. Unfortunately, with the recovery technology of
2003 we couldn't prove what he was, which left us in
scientific limbo. The
"no result" from the search for the nuclear DNA clearly meant Dad wasn't
human, but we
could not prove that fact beyond all possible doubt.
Now, in 2010, there have
been many improvements in the recovery process, and those improvements
applied to the Starchild skull with the stunning result you see below.
a gel sheet that shows a clear recovery of its nuclear DNA, which could
done in 2003.
two screen shots are taken from the national genetic database at
the National Institute of Health, NIH. That public-access database is a
centralized repository of all genetic information generated by
geneticists all over the world, and now covers essentially all living
organisms on Earth, from various kinds of viruses
bacteria, to various kinds of crustaceans and fish, to all kinds of
plants, including great apes and humans.
many species, humans included, there are already nucleotide sequences
covering entire genomes. Therefore, sequences from the Starchild's DNA
can be directly compared against this vast database to look for any
one such comparison below, you see the text below the blue line at the
bottom (if you can read it, sorry it's so
fuzzy) that 265 base pairs (a good length) of recovered Starchild
nuclear DNA matches perfectly with a gene on human chromosome 1. This
beyond any degree of doubt that some of the nuclear DNA seen in the gel
sheet is from a human
one below, and again at the bottom, you see the stunning
report that in a string of 342 base pairs (another good length), "No
significant similarity (is) found." To recover a stretch of base pairs
as long as that with NO reference in the NIH database is astounding
because it means there is no known earthly corollary for
what has been analyzed! This incredible anomaly will
put the Starchild in history books!!!
understand that this result has now been verified several times,
and a few more different fragments have been identified that cannot be
matched in this database to anything known. Despite that fact,
mainstream skeptics will be obligated by
their positions to try to say it's some kind of gibberish or some kind
because in their world view it simply can't be true.
their bleating protests can be easily overcome with continued
repetition of the result, finding more and more similar fragments in
the library that will be created from the Starchild's DNA, which is
what the geneticist is confident will happen over the next weeks and
months---nothing but verification that a significant part of the
Starchild's genome is not found on Earth.
I should add that I still can't reveal
the name of the geneticist or where he works until we are ready to
formally present his results to the world. However, trust
me, he is a well-established professional and his facility is large and
They don't want to be bombarded by media until they are prepared for
it, and neither do I for that matter. Just know that you are a part of
the "inner circle" of those who have put your faith in a dream that is
now coming true.
Two more issues of importance:
(1) I still
don't know where the recent "MonsterQuest" episode "Lizard Monster" can
be viewed on the internet by people outside the U.S. If anyone knows
how that can be found, please let me know and I'll share with the list.
expenses for materials doing our research has now outstripped the
amount donated by the list. It is now coming out of my pocket and I
could use some help to bridge that gap. However, look on the bright
side. This should be the last time I ever have to ask for your help in
this way. ;-)
