Please don't be intimidated by some of the early terminology in the Summary. Every technical term in the report is explained in very basic language, so anyone will come to understand every word, every term, every concept as it is presented. We've worked hard at leaving nobody behind, and we think we've succeeded.
You'll see that all of it is written in the restrained, conservative, precise language science demands. Nonetheless, in its own smudgy way it makes every bottom line clear. I promise you will not come away from the report wondering what you just read. You will know.
Early in 2011, a geneticist attempting to recover Starchild Skull DNA identified several fragments that matched with human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Comparing those fragments with matching fragments from human mtDNA produced an astonishing result. In every comparison, the Starchild presented many more nucleotide differences than are normally found among humans. In one comparison detailed in this report, the compared segments of human mtDNA came from one of its most highly conserved regions. Across 160 ± nucleotides in this segment, only 1 single variation is found among the 33 human haplogroups. In contrast, the same length of Starchild mtDNA has 17 differences! Of those 17, a significant number should be confirmed by multiple repetitions of the test. If several are confirmed (which is highly likely), would it be enough to consider establishing a new Earthly species? It would certainly throw open the door to serious consideration.
