Mystery Of The Starchild

Leave a comment

In 1930s Mexico, in a cave, a young girl found a skeleton of a normal human woman lying on the ground. Near the woman’s skeleton, there was a small hand sticking up out of the dirt. Curious, the young girl began to dig. The owner of the small hand was another skeleton which looked misshapen all over. Unfortunately, only the skull remains. It is this skull that has become known as the “starchild skull.”

Starchildren are children who are half alien and half human. There are several cultures with stories about otherworldly beings that come down to impregnate human women. The child is usually raised by the village until its father returns for it.

The skull was obtained by paranormalist Lloyd Pye from a couple who lived in Texas. He claims to have made every effort to explain the deformities of the skull, but has come up empty-handed. There are many who believe the skull is the genuine remains of alien/human breeding or even genetic manipulation. Others claim that the skull disfigurations are consistent with the characteristics of congenital hydrocephalus.

One way to be sure is DNA testing, but it seems this is also a little strange. Wikipedia says that the DNA test came back as entirely human, as both X- and Y-chromosomes were found, but the official starchild project website claims only the Y-chromosomes were found and that the sample may have been contaminated.

In 2003 testing revealed that the mother was probably a Native American woman, but this result is also disputed. The starchild project claims that in 2010 another DNA test resulted in finding that a “substantial percentage of that DNA has ‘no significant similarity’ to any DNA previously found on Earth.” In 2011 another geneticist working on the project discovered that the mitochondrial DNA was also radically different from human DNA. Meaning that the mother was also not human.

Other Mysteries:

  • The skull is less than 1/3 the thickness of the bone in a human skull.
  • The starchild’s skull is much harder than a human skull.
  • The mouth was infant sized with a flat roof, as opposed to arched, indicating a small or missing tongue.
  • The starchild had much larger inner ears.

Possible Theories:

  • A known genetic condition, or more likely several conditions.
  • A new species of human.
  • A human/alien hybrid.
  • An extraterrestrial.

Here’s a creepy mystery for you. This is an unsolved case of an unknown dead man.

The body of the man was found dead at 6:30 am on December 1st, 1948, in Adelaide, South Australia. Several factors may have contributed to the popularity of this case, including what appeared to be a secret code on a scrap of paper in the victim’s pocket and the use of an undetectable poison.

Witnesses claim to have seen him (or a man resembling him) lying in the same spot and position earlier the previous evening. All the labels on his clothes were missing, although they did appear to be of high quality. He had no wallet or distinguishing marks, and his face was clean-shaven.

Although many people came forward through the course of the investigation to say they could identify the man, all of the claims were dis-proven.

Not strange enough yet? A tiny, rolled-up piece of paper torn from a book was found sewn into the man’s pocket. The words “Tamam shud” were printed on it, and it was translated to mean “ended” or “finished.” This led a man to tell police that he had found a copy of “The Rubaiyat” in the backseat of his unlocked car (it was the 40s after all), a couple of weeks before the body was found. Tests later confirmed the ripped page was from the same book. The back of the book appeared to have some kind of code written in pencil.

Also in the book was the unlisted phone number of a nurse, who said she owned a copy of “The Rubaiyat,” but had given it away to a man named Alfred Boxall. The woman’s reaction to the plaster cast that was made of the dead man led police to believe that he was in fact Boxall. At least, they did until they found Boxall alive, and still in possession of his copy of “The Rubaiyat.”

Here is one final mystery about this case. Years after the burial, flowers began appearing on the grave. Who was the mystery man? The most plausible theory, given the time, was that the mystery man was a spy. Even if that is the case, it would just go to show that sometimes fact is stranger than fiction.

The Betz Mystery Sphere

Leave a comment

In the 1970s the Betz family discovered a mysterious spherical object in the remains of a brush fire near their home.While originally they no doubt intended it to be an interesting conversation piece, it would soon become the center of several investigations and a subsequent media firestorm.

The strange sphere seemed to have been “activated” with the playing of a guitar. It began to resonate with some of the notes and began acting strangely. Over the course of several months it would exhibit such strange behavior as seemingly controlled movements, transmitting radio signal, and odd magnetic properties. Later the family would also connect the sphere to seemingly paranormal happenings in their house like organ music that came from nowhere and slamming doors.

Though a large battery of tests were run on the object not much information is known about it. While some of this is due to the lack of appropriate technology in the 70s, part of the reason is also due to the family’s reluctance to have the sphere damaged in any way, thus scientists could not simply crack it open and see what was inside.

While there have been many theories to explain the strange ball, none have been proven 100% true. An artist claimed that the ball was his and that he had it made for an exhibit he was putting on display, others say that it was an ordinary ball bearing or valve used by some machines. Of course there are still others who believe in an extraterrestrial origin. In recent times the sphere has seemed to vanish with no one knowing exactly where it is now.

Strange Facts About The Case:

  • The only markings on the sphere was an elongated triangle. There was no signs of welding or any other man-made marks.
  • The object seemed to vibrate or give off a frequency humans were not sensitive to, but animals were.
  • The object would seem to come to a complete stop then start rolling again in a different direction, often returning to the person who had rolled it.
  • The tests concluded that there were two other round objects inside surrounded by some sort of liquid material.
  • The sphere seemed to have four magnetic poles.
  • One scientist claimed to have discovered radio waves coming from it.
  • Another scientist claims that the circular objects inside are made of heavier material than any elements currently known to man.
  • It appeared to be more active on sunny days.
  • It may have been the source of paranormal activity.
