Aliens Or Why The New ‘Independence Day’ Movie Isn’t Being Politically Correct

Aliens have always been portrayed as technologically advanced, belligerent beings hellbent on conquering Earth. However, based on the only alien DNA we have in possession, the opposite is true. By far, the closest mankind has ever been to a realistic alien depiction is via Steven Spielberg’s beloved E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

Apparently, aliens are very tiny beings, at least, based on DNA evidence sitting in a laboratory at Stanford University. At most, they are only six inches tall. That would explain why it’s hard to catch aliens in plain view.

However, a bunch of rowdy Hispanic boys camping out in the Atacama desert in Chile were lucky enough to find one such alien. And before any adult human could stop them, one of the boys would use a vicious, handmade slingshot to pelt the little alien’s back skull with a stone, effectively killing the creature. Judging from its diminutive size, it is highly likely that the Chilean boys had a chance sighting.

This caused them to stalk the tiny alien and eventually bring it down with a slingshot. How the poor alien’s DNA got into the prestigious and highly respected medical laboratory at Stanford University is the subject of Sirius, a crowd-funded documentary aired via Netflix recently.

The Atacama Humanoid was first discovered in 2003 in the remote Atacama desert region of Chile. Dr. Garry Nolan (Rachford and Carlota A. Harris Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University School of Medicine) headed up the team examining the human-like specimen. He suggested the protocol for taking the DNA samples and, in consultation with Dr. Ralph Lachman, also of Stanford University, suggested precisely which X Rays and CT scan images would be needed for proper evaluation of the skeletal anomalies. Dr. Lachman, who is a visiting scholar and visiting professor at Stanford University and author of “Radiology of Syndromes, Metabolic Disorders and Skeletal Dysplasias” and is one of the leading experts in the world on skeletal dysplasia and abnormalities, examined the X Rays, CAT scans and photographs of the humanoid. These scientists know their shit. Together, they obtained excellent DNA material by surgically dissecting the distal ends of two right anterior ribs on the humanoid. These clearly contained bone marrow material, as was seen on the dissecting microscope that was brought in for the procedure. The bone marrow and other material from the skull were obtained under sterile, surgical procedures and placed directly into sterile containers provided by Dr. Nolan. Dr. Nolan proceeded to set up a very detailed protocol needed for examining “ancient” or old DNA. This is a highly specialized area of research and the leading scientists in the world with expertise in this area consulted with Dr. Nolan in this endeavor.

While it is highly possible that there may be other species of aliens in a vast and ever-expanding universe, we have no choice but to focus our attention on the only alien specimen we have in our possession. Unfortunately, it’s the only way for us to stick to the facts. After all, with the absence of any hard evidence, all we can do is speculate endlessly. And from the point of view of scientific analysis, doing so is not only worthless — it is also dangerous.

DNA doesn’t lie, or so the CSI TV series and its countless iterations are saying over and over. We cannot go wrong with DNA evidence, unless, of course, we interpret the circumstances erroneously. Based on preliminary findings, one million chromosomes of the alien found in the Atacama desert, are human DNA. Meanwhile, the other two million or so other chromosomes are alien, causing it to be discarded as “unknown or non-existent on Earth” by the computer program at Stanford’s School of Medicine.

When Ata, as this humanoid and “alienoid” combo has come to be called, was first brought to Stanford University, researchers initially thought that they were looking at a mummified fetus owing to its size, according to Stanford Daily. This is because the Atacama desert, where Ata was found, was a common backyard of a Chilean town where abortions were rampant. Imagine an impoverished yet happy village whose main source of income is mining.

If you watched the movie The 33, which is based on the true story of Chilean miners rescued after being trapped, you would be familiar with the harsh, dusty terrain of the Atacama desert. This is where Ata was scooped from. As it turns out, the being was around 10-years-old when it died based on lab analyses of its bones and tissues.

Just like the lovable character from E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, this alien has a big head. Ata most likely grew up in the desert, perhaps after being left accidentally by relatives. It is also possible that this alien was the product of human and alien parents. It being a combo of human and alien chromosomes, it is entirely possible that Ata’s original ancestors could also be us — humans.

Ata’s DNA is available to anybody who cares to study the tiny alien. We only have one such specimen thus far, but lucky for us, the desert brought us a full one from head to toe, damaged by only a puncture on the back skull. Perhaps we should thank the rowdy boys responsible.

Collectively, we feel sorry that we killed an alien, but without this double helix signature, what proof do we have of alien existence?

Complete DNA sample from a full-size alien should be cause for a CSI feast. After all, one swab is usually enough for analytical purposes. Have fun with your analysis, everyone, just don’t forget to keep an open mind. This is the stuff of scientific breakthroughs. And it’s perfectly all right to always be asking questions, as illustrated by IFL Science.

On second thought, did we obtain this alien through illegal means, or was he or she thrust in our hands for a reason? It’s highly suspect that Earth finds itself in a galaxy that is called the Milky Way because no other galaxy has such a dense concentration of stars. Our neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, pales in comparison.

Maybe humankind is meant to live forever, or else why would there be billions of suns in our galaxy? Sadly, not too many of us are interested in looking to the stars for future habitats. In fact, it seems that only a handful are really pursuing space exploration particularly Mars colonization, the most notable of whom is Elon Musk, according to the Inquisitr. It is unknown if the CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX has had the opportunity to look into Ata the alien.

And perhaps it will take a catastrophe such as the one that befell the fictional planet of Krypton, before we realize that our eternal salvation is only attainable by looking to the stars, in the light of the global warming phenomenon.
