Aliens in Mexico: Scientists disclose what the mysterious corpses they put on display could really be.

Controversy Surrounds Alleged Discovery of Ancient Alien Corpses

The world was left astonished by an announcement claiming the discovery of two ‘non-human’ alien corpses, purportedly dating back 1,000 years and preserved in a Peruvian mine. These mummified specimens, characterized by their small bodies, three-fingered hands, and elongated skulls, bore an uncanny resemblance to the extraterrestrial creature from the movie E.T. Notably, their internal cavities were said to contain rare metals and eggs, adding to the intrigue. The alleged ‘aliens’ were unveiled at Mexico’s Congress during its first-ever hearing on UFOs, but skepticism and controversy surround the claims.

Key Details About the Alleged Aliens:

  • Appearance: The mummified specimens have small bodies, three-fingered hands, and elongated skulls.
  • Age: Believed to be more than 1,000 years old.
  • Discovery: Found in the city of Cusco, Peru, in 2017.
  • Preservation: These specimens were preserved in a Peruvian mine.
  • DNA: A significant portion of their DNA is claimed to be ‘unknown.’
  • Additional Info: The internal cavities of these specimens allegedly contained rare metals and eggs.

Claims and Testimonies: The alleged aliens were presented in Mexico City by Jaime Maussan, a journalist known as a ‘ufologist’ who has previously claimed to have discovered extraterrestrial remains. Maussan asserted that the corpses were found in Cusco, Peru, in 2017. He testified under oath that nearly a third of their DNA was unidentifiable, suggesting they were not part of terrestrial evolution. X-rays supposedly revealed that one of them had eggs inside. Maussan also claimed that scientists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) had conducted radiocarbon dating, confirming their age to be over 1,000 years.

José de Jesús Zalce Benítez, the director of the Scientific Institute for Health of the Mexican navy, corroborated the claim of scientific analysis, including X-rays, 3D reconstruction, and DNA analysis, which purportedly indicated that these bodies had no relation to humans.

Political Response: Representatives of Mexico’s Congress expressed their thoughts and concerns about the presentation, signaling a potential interest in further discussions on the subject. Mexican politician Sergio Gutiérrez Luna, a friend of Maussan, announced the country’s first hearing on UFOs, with the possibility of legislative action related to unidentified aerial phenomena.

Scientific Skepticism: The scientific community largely responded with disbelief and ridicule. Scientists raised questions about the authenticity of the claims, emphasizing the absence of peer-reviewed research or publications regarding the alleged findings. They stressed the need for rigorous scientific analysis and evidence before accepting such extraordinary claims.

Debunking the Allegations: It’s worth noting that these so-called ‘alien’ mummies had already been debunked by a team of experts led by Alexander Sokolov from the Scientists Against Myths YouTube channel. Their investigation revealed that the bodies were a combination of human and animal bones, with significant anatomical irregularities, such as placing thigh bones upside down and even upside-down fingers. This analysis cast significant doubt on the authenticity of the specimens.

Reactions and Further Examination: In a follow-up press conference, Maussan expressed disappointment in the backlash from scientists and other experts. Ryan Graves, a former US Navy pilot who had previously commented on UFOs, voiced his disappointment in Maussan’s claims. Dr. Benitez, who supported the alleged discovery, challenged skeptics to conduct their own research and analysis.

The Quest for Extraterrestrial Life: While the search for extraterrestrial life continues to captivate human curiosity, scientists emphasize the importance of thorough and credible evidence to support such claims. The debate surrounding alleged alien discoveries underscores the need for rigorous scientific scrutiny in exploring the possibility of life beyond Earth.
