Koi Alien Photo 44
Koi Alien Photo 44 appears on several websites.

One popular UFO website (alienandufopictures.com) shows this photograph with the following caption:  “The proof is starting to show that aliens have been visiting Earth for a very long time. This man in India discovered a skull which is clearly that of an alien that died sometime ago. Luckily, there was a camera around to have a picture of the alien head taken so that this discovery could be shared with the rest of the world. The Internet really is a beautiful thing that is bringing all of humanity closer together in our search for the truth of the universe.”

While the text above claims the skull was found in India, other websites contain claims (in various languages) that the image shows an American soldier in Vietnam with an alien skull.

Koi Alien Photo 44 was created by manipulating a photograph of a human skull to create a skull that appeared to be "alien".

The original (untouched) photograph is shown below (labelled "koi_ap_44_b").

Koi Alien Photo 44 has also been used in connection with a story regarding alien skulls having been found during a restoration project at the Vatican Library. That story appeared on various websiites, including a webpage on the ConjectureNew.com website (which appears to have been the original source of this particular story) and also on the GreatNews.com website. The text of that story included the following:

 

"ALIENS AT THE VATICAN

"Whatever those remains represent, there's a reason why the good fathers buried them there to be forgotten."

Alien Remains Found At The Vatican. Pope Told To Remain Silent.

Many alien skulls were found during a restoration project at the Vatican Library.

CN. THE VATICAN. SPECIAL REPORT. Skeletal remains resembling 'space aliens' have been excavated from the basement floor of a centuries old vault under the Vatican Library.

The Library had been undergoing a major restoration to its' underground vaults, of which many, CN has learned, still contained dirt floors that have not felt a human foot in over 500 years.

The above picture of a restoration worker holding an alien skull was obtained by CN through an anonymous carrier. The Vatican Military has closed all entry to the Library. Although a Vatican spokesperson was quoted expressing his awe and excitement concerning the find; he later disavowed any knowledge of the comment. Press sources have confirmed that an unprecedented command of silence has been enacted by Pope John Paul upon the request of several world security organizations.

A world security agency meets with the Pope.

UFO organizations are already calling this "the great world government cover-up." Mary Peterson, chairperson for SART (Space Aliens are Real and a Threat), states her opinion "what lies beneath the Vatican floors belongs in our Universities to be studied. This only proves the theory that world government has known of aliens all along. And the Vatican is essentially it's own country with its' own government and military."

The 'fear of God' has already been put into the hearts of many of the faithful. Sister Judy Mebosa, chef at St. John's Cathedral in London, stated "it's the mark that the end is near. Whatever those remains represent, there's a reason why the good fathers buried them there to be forgotten. And there's a reason why God has allowed them to be found."

Michael Maregski, Lutheran pastor of Our Holy Father in Rome, is quoted as saying "the ufologists have been speculating for many years that aliens may have been portrayed as angels to our ancestors in antiquity. If this speculation turns out to be proven true; why would angels be buried at the Vatican only to be forgotten?" Father Edward Muldoon, of St. Jude's in Rome, answered pastor Michael Maregski's question with "maybe they are angels, but remember, there were two groups of angels."

United States envoy, James D. Arnold, states "everyone just needs to calm down about this matter. The Vatican area was once swamp land. I think people are just seeing the effects of swamp gas."

 

 

3. The real background to this image

Koi Alien Photo 44 was created by manipulating a photograph of a human skull to create a skull that appeared to be "alien".

The original (untouched) photograph is shown below (labelled "koi_ap_44_b").

A graphic designer commented in a discussion on the AboveTopSecret.com discussion forum that this image showed "quite possibly the worst use of the adobe photoshop liquify tool I have ever seen".

An article written in 2006 by Luis Ruiz Noguez entitled "Calaveras y Esqueletos Extraterrestres" (i.e. "Alien Skulls and Skeletons") states that "In reality it is a modern digital fraud a real picture of the Vietnam War. In the original photo shows the soldier with a skull, but not an alien, but a Vietcong soldier".  Unfortunately, the relevant article does not cite any source for the original image nor any source for the information provided about that original image.

5. Further references and resources

There is a rapid turnover of UFO material on the Internet. Many links to material on UFO websites quickly become out of date. Therefore, instead of giving many links to specific webpages I have instead included below a search box which can be used to search various leading UFO websites at the same time. You can then click on tabs at the top of the search results to list only results from forums, only results from websites I have labelled as "skeptical" etc. I have included tabs for a couple of specific websites that I find particularly useful, including the valuable archives of the UFO UpDates email discussion List. The relevant websites are all listed in the discussion of the "UFO Searchillion" search engine in Section 2.4 of the "Free UFO Researcher Starter Pack" and continues to evolve...

 

The relevant search box is one of the two main tools on this website which are intended to help reduce the amount of reinvention of the wheel within UFOlogy. The other main tool is the collection of tables of references to discussion of UFO incidents, personalities and other matters in various books. Those tables can be sorted by author, length and date. I hope these tools are useful.
