    buxfan4life The future's so bright, I've gotta wear... shades.

    Is this the one from a few years ago where they have "actual footage" of mermen/maids that are clearly CGI?

    Yes but they've added "new footage".

    Two minutes after it aired there was already some moron on my fb feed...."Mermaids...we're not alone".

    AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGH!

    guys, if you want to read up on a wonderfully weird but absolutely real creature, take some time to research the atacama humanoid. steven greer is releasing a documentary about it. though greer is a nutjob, dr. garry nolan -- a very well-known stanford scientist who maintains unflappable credibility -- has more or less validated that this is not a hoax... but he's also not sure exactly what it is (or was). other legitimate scientists have shared his confusion. its mutations are so extreme that it's spellbinding when looking at the bone structure that supported upright walking, despite being only six inches tall.

    Well, no need to read too much up on it. It's already been confirmed as human.

    my thought about the atacama humanoid is that it may very well be a complex hoax. i don't know. however, if it is, some highly esteemed scientists are unnecessarily risking their careers and all the reputation they've built. heck, the stanford laboratory for his field is named after him.

    listen, i'm not claiming that it's an alien. however, to claim that it's just a human and that's all we need to know is a horribly simplistic approach. no offense. the amount of mutations in this six-inch dwarf that was upright and walking on two legs is the anomaly of anomalies.

    when masters of their fields are universally perplexed, you better believe it's fascinating.

    i'll also add that the term "humanoid" is perfectly apt.

    I'm just basing my opinion on what the Nolan dude you were just talking about said. :p His words, not mine.

     
  14. But the guy from Stanford is saying that it's a human, and he's not sure exactly why it's only 6 inches, but he thinks it was either someone with an extreme form of dwarfism or the disease that causes rapid aging. It's not exactly something that would lend itself to a hoax. It's weird sure, but not that weird.

    okay. i'll quote what you quoted:

    do i need to provide a definition for "humanoid"?
