6.6 – THE STAR CHILDREN (2.7.14)


Copper Canyon, Mexico. In 1930, while exploring a mine tunnel, a teenage girl unearths two skulls. One of them is oddly misshaped. Radiocarbon dating tests reveal the skull is roughly 900 years old. And according to a dentist who examined the upper jaw, the mysterious relic came from a child no more than five years old.

Mainstream scientists insist the deformation of what is now known as the Starchild Skull is due to a genetic disorder most likely hydrocephalus a condition in which an abnormal amount of fluid causes the skull to enlarge. But paranormal researcher and caretaker of the skull, Lloyd Pye, says he has ruled out this possibility, based on the skull’s unique shape.

“It wasn’t hydrocephalic, because it’s clear that if you’re hydrocephalic you blow up like a balloon. You don’t blow up with a defined shape and with a crease down the middle. You definitely don’t grow up with a crease down the middle between two of your suture lines.”

Lloyd Pye (Founder, The Starchild Project)

But many researchers are not only baffled by the volume of the skull, which measures more than ten percent larger than that of an average adult, but also a number of other characteristics they say are distinctly not human.

“The Starchild Skull has half the thickness of ordinary human bone, but it’s also twice as dense as ordinary human bone, with a consistency more similar to dental enamel. It has bizarre, thick strands in it, almost like there’s some extra powerful weave inside the bone. It also has this bizarre reddish residue that appears to be similar to bone marrow but very different from what we normally see.”

“There are no sinus cavities, for instance. There are many attachments inside the skull for tendons that human beings don’t have and it appears to be some sort of hybridization. It’s part human, but also part something else.”

When the Starchild Skull is subjected to forensic reconstruction, the face that is produced appears eerily similar to descriptions of Grey aliens.

“It has all the physical attributes that are typically described by people who have encounters, or allege that they have encounters with gray aliens. It has very unusual eyes. It has expanded parietals. It has a crease down the middle. It has a very, very narrow lower face. Plus, it has that monster brain in that head.”

Lloyd Pye (Founder, The Starchild Project)

Lloyd Pye launched what he calls the Starchild Project, working with independent researchers to determine exactly who or what this unusual skull belonged to. According to him, DNA tests carried out by Trace Genetics in While scientists uncovered mitochondrial DNA or DNA inherited solely from the mother they were unable to detect nuclear DNA or DNA from both the mother and father.

“When we tried to recover the Starchild’s nuclear DNA, in six attempts, no recovery.  So, at that time, what that obviously indicated was if the Starchild’s mitochondrial DNA was recoverable, that meant it had a human mother, and if its nuclear DNA was not recoverable, then there was something wrong with the father’s DNA. ‘Cause if the father had been human, you would have had as easy a recovery of it as you did of the human mother. So, we knew right then, in 2003, something was very wrong with, at least, dad. And so, we formed the assumption, based on the evidence, that it was a human-alien hybrid with a human mother and an alien father.”

  – Lloyd Pye (Founder, The Starchild Project)

But more advanced DNA testing in 2011 revealed something even more shocking: the DNA, not only of the father but also the mother, did not appear to be human after all.

“Once we began to recover longer stretches of the mitochondrial DNA, we found out that they didn’t really fit at all. And so now the genetic evidence indicates that it didn’t have a human mother. It’s just purely alien. The reasons mainstream science resists any kind of information that is in support of UFOs and aliens is simply because it’s going to change everything about a certain aspect of their bailiwick, of their purview.”

Lloyd Pye (Founder, The Starchild Project)

Although Lloyd Pye passed away in December of 2013, his research team hopes to one day recover the entire genome of the Starchild skull, ultimately revealing the truth about what they and other researchers maintain is an otherworldly species.

“By looking deeper into this skull and looking at the genetics, it’s very possible that if we can analyze the full spectrum of the genome we might find our first proof of extraterrestrial intervention.”

“One of the things we have to seriously consider is the possibility that human life on Earth did not originate on Earth, that we might be the surviving remnant of settlers who came here long ago. When we find brain sizes that are twice as big as a normal human brain, we are left with compelling evidence that the extraterrestrials that we think we’re looking for might be a lot closer to us than we ever would have dared to imagine before.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),

Might this extraordinary skull have been that of an alien child that lived here on Earth hundreds of years ago? And, if so, is this an ancestor of the Star Children that some believe are among us today? Perhaps further clues can be found by examining cultures who believe certain children are born with a direct link to the stars.
