Is the Atacama Alien Skeleton an Aborted Fetus Mummy?

When a Stanford University professor said the bizarre Atacama skeleton likely belonged to a human child between the ages of six and eight, it seemed crazy. How could this tiny, long-headed creature with less ribs than standard kids been inside a child of grade-school age? Today there's a more plausible explanation: The … » 5/09/13 11:54am 5/09/13 11:54am
