That's just a dead baby. The "article" says it lived 6 to 8 years, but the cranial bones say otherwise.

Thank you for those links. I assumed it must be a miscarriage or abortion until I read the article, In fact, it seemed so obvious that I wonder why the article did not even mention the possibility? That seems irresponsible to me.

1) A personal blog from someone claiming to be a museum curator, but giving no name or identification, is as reliable as the original source.

2) Assuming the person is legit and really knows his or her stuff, there was no explanation about the major difference in DNA.

I'd like some more information from credible sources before trying to reach a conclusion. There are still too many unanswered questions.

Whether or not you agree with Purplepyro, at least it was a more credible link than Fancy's. Yet again Fancy keeps the low standards of IAB, now with added junk science.

So... they've either proven that it is human (but with 9% non-human DNA?) OR that it's an alien that shares 91% of our DNA. Hmmmm...

It's the remains of a foetus aborted illegally by some desperate woman who probably didn't survive the ordeal either. Sensationalizing it like this is cruel and disrespectful to mother, the child, and anyone who had to go through something like this. The full explanation can be found here.

@Purple thanks for that link.. Good job that wasn't the original credit or we'd have a pro-life pro choice debate on our hands...*leaves*

Bet when that poor thing died it never figured it would become a celebrity in 2013.

I don't understand, so its a small human but only matches 91% of our DNA?
