Is there a possibility that elves exist.?

Is there not a possibility that elves could exist. I'm not talking about the short Santa workers, im talking about the tall ones, that basically look exactly like us with slightly pointed ears. Couldn't there have been like a birth defect in someone giving them the idea that elves are real making a sort of real life existence of elves?

    The majority of "evidence" of these miniature humanoid beings are the numerous eye-witness testimonies. Encounters with elf-entities usually occur when the elf approaches a home and requests food or shelter. If the resident refuses to comply with the elf's demands, they would bring misfortune upon the greedy person. Unless harrassed, elves are said to generally avoid contact with humans. The majority of elven legends throughout the world confine these beings to the deep forest, where they lead a reclusive, mysterious life.

    Although the sworn testimonies of those who claim to have encountered elves on occasion or spotted them in the forest are easy to dismiss as fantasy or hallucination, scientific, archaeological discoveries cause one to think twice...at least for a minute or two.

    In 1932, a 14-inch tall mummy was found by gold prospectors in the Pedro Mountains 60 miles southwest of Casper, Wyoming (USA). The tiny mummy was found sitting on a ledge in a small granite cave. Its legs were crossed and arms folded on its lap. It had a flat nose, low forehead, and a broad, thin-lipped mouth. The mummy was x-rayed and analysed. The Anthropology Department of Harvard University certified the mummy as genuine and believed by some to be of a 65-year old man. A more skeptical Dr. George Gill speculated that the mummy could have been an infant afflicted with anencephaly, a congenital abnormality which causes tiny adult proportions. Since its discovery, the mummy changed hands several times and, unfortunately, disappeared.

    It is interesting to note that Shoshone and Crow natives that inhabited the area where the mummy was found had legends of "little people" in their ancient folklore.

    Perhaps the most spectacular and baffling find was in the later 1800s. Hundreds of tiny flint tools were found in the Pennine hills of east Lancashire, all of which were no larger than half an inch long. The tiny tools included scrapers, borers, and crescent shaped knives. The craftsmanship of such tools were extremely fine, and in many cases, a magnifying glass needed to be used to detect the evidence of flaking used to bring them to a sharp point. None of these tiny tools were practical for perfoming the tasks that the regular sized ones were intended for. Because of this, some speculated they were ritualistic replicas...but why, and why so small? Were these tools made by similarly small people?

    As with the elf legends, tiny tools similar to the ones found in Lancashire have been found worldwide including Devon and Suffolk, England, Egypt, Africa, Australia, France, Italy, and India.

    It would seem that if elves did/do exist, more evidence or contact with these strange miniature people would be collected or reported. However, if giant 6-8 foot tall bipedal hominids such as Sasquatch and Yeti can keep their existence unknown, how much easier it would be for elves to do the same, being just inches tall!

    I suppose there could be a birth defect where they have pointed ears (an extremely slim chance of that happening) but that does not make them an elf.

    We have explored far to much of the earth for them to have hidden their civilzations from us. Just think about how much land we take up. The only way the could exist without our knowledge would be if they lived underground with well placed hidden enterances and air vaults or something leading to the outside.

    I bet we pass elves everyday and just can't tell because their hair is covering up their ears. Ive seen some crazy pictures of infants with 20 toes so I think elves make more sense.

    on this earth? no. in order for them to exist, they would have to have a very large and steady population. if they were humanoid, they would only be able to live in certain regions, and if they were technologically advanced enough to do something elaborate like live underground, we would detect them. the earth, for the most part, has been mapped, underground and all.
