Scientists assess DNA Hair sample from Human being apparently not from Earth
Compiled by Jan Singh
An Australian's contact with a Human-looking Extraterrestrials has resulted in a DNA test of their biological material. The intriguing results demonstrate the need for more intensive scientific research on Extraterrestrials, in the West.
The full case report by leading Australian researcher Bill Chalker was originally published in the Spring 1999 edition of International UFO Reporter, the quarterly journal of the Chicago-based J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS).
Peter Khoury, the subject of this case, was born in Lebanon in 1964 and moved to Australia in 1973. There he met his future wife Vivian at school in 1981. Peter and Vivian were married in 1990 and had two children, and lived in Sydney, at the time of this report.
Peter and Vivian had their first UFO experience in February 1988, a simple sighting of unusual moving lights. But in July of that year, Peter had a deeply disturbing, consciously remembered contact experience that, he says, changed his life.
Mr. Chalker points out that "alien" beings are often described by experiencers as having no visible hair. But one species of Extraterrestrial being sometimes called "Nordic", is described fairly often as having distinctly human-like features including hair, often (though not always) blond in color. A number of well-known abduction cases have involved human-looking beings with hair, including the 1975 abduction reported by Travis Walton in Arizona, and the 1957 Brazilian abduction reported by Antonio Villas Boas.
Peter Khoury's case has some similarity to that of Villas Boas, who said he "was forced to have sex with an aggressive humanoid female aboard a landed UFO."
Mr. Khoury told Mr. Chalker that his encounter of July 23, 1992 began at 7:30 in the morning while he was in bed.
Earlier that morning, he had driven his wife to work, then returned home and went back to bed for a short while. Suddenly, he bolted wide awake and sat up. There "were two humanoid females sitting on the bed, both entirely naked," says Peter Khoury.
"These two women looked human in nearly every way. They had well proportioned adult bodies. One looked somewhat Asian, with straight dark shoulder-length hair and dark eyes. The other looked "perhaps Scandinavian-like", with light-coloured ("maybe bluish") eyes and long blond hair that fell half-way down her back."
Her hair was especially notable to Peter Khoury. "I had never seen a hair style like that. It was curled something like Farrah Fawcett, but to an extreme... It just looked really exotic in a way," he told Mr. Chalker.
But Mr. Khoury felt that "these women were not exactly human. Their faces were somewhat odd -- not unattractive, but too chiselled, with very high cheekbones and eyes that were two or three times larger than normal."
Mr. Khoury took special notice of the blonde. Her face was too long, he felt. "I have never seen a human looking like that," he said.
"The blonde, who was sitting in a kneeling position on the bed, seemed to be in charge", and Mr. Khoury as felt that she was communicating somehow with the dark-haired woman, telepathetically "who was sitting with her legs partly folded under her. There was something stiff, almost blank, in the expressions of the women," Mr. Khoury observed.
Though very stunned by the sudden appearance of the women, Khoury had only a few moments to consider how they could possibly have arrived in his bedroom before "the blonde reached out with both her hands and cupped the back of his head, drawing his face toward her chest."
Mr. Khoudry told Mr. Chalker that he resisted. She then pulled harder. He further responded by further pulling back.
"She was pretty strong," he further told Mr. Chalker. "She pulled me over and my mouth was basically on her nipple. And I bit."
Mr. Khoury said he doesn't know why he bit the woman, but even though he felt a small piece of her nipple come away in his teeth, she did not cry out. But "the expression on her face was like, 'this isn't the way,' as if she was in some sort of "contemplative" shock or confusion," Mr. Khoury further elaborated.
Mr. Khoury then indicated that, the apparent Blonde Human-looking Extraterrestrial looked at the Asian Human-looking Extraterrestrial... and the Blonde-looking ET, looked at him, with similar "contemplative" shock or confusion.
Involuntarily, Mr. Khoury indicated that he swallowed the small fragment in his mouth, and it caught in his throat. He went into a coughing fit. Then "suddenly, the two women simply disappeared," Mr. Khoudry says.
Some time during Mr. Khoury's contact with these Human-looking Extraterrestrials, he was apparently abducted.
When Mr. Khoury realized the women were gone, he tried to clear his throat by drinking water. It didn't work. Mr. Khoury added, he then had "an urge to go to the bathroom."
Mr. Khoury then indicated that he realized "his penis felt very painful." Standing in the bathroom, he then decided to "pull back the foreskin and found two thin blond strands of hair wrapped tightly around."
He struggled to unravel the pieces of hair as the pain became an intense burning sensation. Finally he managed to removed the two pieces of hair and immediately put them in a small sealable plastic bag.
"The reason I did that was because I knew that there was no way, no way at all, that a hair that size and wrapped around the way it was should have been there... [T]hinking of these women, the thing in my throat, the hair, something bizarre had just happened."
Mr. Khoury resolved to keep the hair sample in case it should ever prove useful in shedding light on his experiences.
The thing in Khoury's throat stayed there for three days. He coughed constantly. He tried clearing his throat with water, bread, anything he could think of, but nothing helped. On the third day, the feeling in his throat just went away.
He did not want to tell his wife how his coughing fit had come about, but two weeks later he decided to tell her. "I was shocked," he told Mr. Chalker. "She accepted it better than I did."
DNA examination of Human-looking Extraterrestrials
The pieces of hair, carefully stored away since the encounter, became the subject of the first openly-reported scientific DNA test on a possible abduction-related sample.
The blond hairs were extremely thin and almost clear in colour. It was determined that the hair was not chemically treated, because if it had been, little or no mitochondrial DNA could have been recovered. However, using the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) process, good quality DNA was recovered.
For comparison, samples were also taken of Peter Khoury's hair and that of his wife Vivian. DNA was successfully extracted from Peter's hair, but no usable DNA was recovered from Vivian's hair, possibly because of chemical treatment.
After thorough testing of the hair samples, the scientists of the Anomaly Physical Evidence Group arrived at a startling conclusion. The thin blond hair, which appeared to have come from a light-skinned caucasian-like looking woman, could not have come from a normal human of that racial type.
Instead, though apparently 'human', the hair showed five distinctive DNA markers that are characteristic of a rare sub-group of the Chinese Mongoloid racial type.
A detailed survey of the literature on variations in mitochondrial DNA, comprising tens of thousands of samples, showed only four other people on record with all five of the distinctive markers in the blond hair. All four were Chinese, with black hair.
Mitochondrial DNA is passed only from mother to child and therefore offers a means of tracing ancient ancestry on the mother's side. The findings suggest that all four of the Chinese subjects share a common female ancestor with the blonde woman. But there is no easy explanation for how this could be.
Testing for nuclear DNA, if such could be recovered from the blond hair, would be more complex and expensive than the tests run so far, but might show that the lineage of the blonde's father was even stranger than that of her mother. But such testing must await funding that has yet to be found. So far, the members of the Anomaly Physical Evidence Group have financed all their work themselves.
Without the blond hair sample, the account told by Peter Khoury is but one more in an almost endless sequence of wrenching, but unprovable, abduction accounts. The hair, however, changes everything. "It undeniably exists," Bill Chalker says "and thorough forensic testing shows that it is anomalous. It seems likely that no person with blond hair and an exact DNA match to Khoury's blonde could be found in the city of Sydney, nor on the continent of Australia, nor -- probably -- anywhere in the world."
Who then was the being whose blond hair inexplicably became wrapped around Peter Khoury's penis?
"Are we dealing with 'humans' from elsewhere, namely those with human DNA, albeit very rare and somewhat anomalous?" asks Bill Chalker. "This case raises all sorts of issues, such as human 'panspermia' -- the theory that human-like beings may have migrated to Earth in the fairly recent past from elsewhere in the galaxy, perhaps giving rise to the sudden appearance of modern homo sapiens, a species not directly descended from their immediate predecessors, the Neanderthals."
"Also, given the Asian mongoloid connection, we looked at the problem of European-like rare Asian types in the past," Mr. Chalker says. "The controversial saga of the Taklamakan mummies in remote Western China is turning the early history of China on its head. These mummies include people who are quite tall, some 6 feet or so, and some are blond. I'm not suggesting a connection here, but you can understand this investigation has opened up all sorts of interesting possibilities about the biological nature of some of the beings implicated in abduction cases."
These questions will not be easy to answer. The Anomaly Physical Evidence Group hopes to continue constructive research concerning matters pertinent.
About the author:
Bill Chalker, born in Grafton, New South Wales (NSW) Australia, was educated at the University of New England, graduating with an Honours Science Degree (B.Sc. Honours) with majors in Chemistry and Mathematics.
Over the years, Mr. Chalker helped brought together an informal network of scientists who all view the UFO phenomenon as worthy of serious attention. (Many of Mr. Chalker's colleagues prefer to contribute anonymously because the UFO problem is seen as a "forbidden science" in the industrialized West).
A Sydney, Australian Abduction Experience From 1992, with biological evidence, that Mr. Chalker helped to research, became the subject of the world's first DNA PCR investigation of an alleged alien specimen, yielding intriguing results that have suggested fascinating new lines of investigation and speculation.
Bill Chalker is one of Australia's leading UFO researchers and has written extensively on the subject. He is a contributing editor for the International UFO Reporter and coordinates the NSW UFO INVESTIGATION CENTRE (UFOIC).
He was the Australian representative for the Aerial Phenomena Research Organisation (APRO) from 1978 to 1986 and NSW state representative for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) from 1976 to 1993.
In 1999, Bill Chalker released details of the world's first PCR DNA profiling of an "alien" biological hair sample implicated in a Sydney abduction experience. The DNA evidence revealed in continuing study appears to have profound implications for the nature of the reality behind abduction experiences. Bill Chalker has formed a specialized research team - the Anomaly Physical Evidence Group (APEG) which is focusing on the biological and genetic aspects of the UFO phenomenon.
In 1996, Mr. Chalker had lectured with Harvard researcher Dr. John Mack and Dominique Callimanopulos on the abduction phenomenon in Sydney and assisted them in their cross cultural investigation of possible abduction experiences in indigenous cultures. In 1989 and 1990 the first articles on the UFO abduction phenomenon by a UFO researcher to be published in national Australian magazines appeared, namely Mr. Chalker's articles in Penthouse and Nature & Health.
