Are These Really Aliens? The Mysterious Mummies That Have Divided the UFO Community
A UFO (unidentified flying object) researcher presented two alleged “non-human” bodies at the Mexican Congress on Tuesday, provoking a volley of reactions from enthusiasts interested in alien theory. Some netizens expressed curiosity and awe, while others dismissed the event as a hoax or a publicity stunt.
Jaime Maussan, who has led investigations into alien phenomena for decades, stood with scientists to unveil two corpses in what many saw as a ‘watershed’ event. The researcher made the extraordinary claim that the corpses, recovered from a mine in Peru’s Cusco city, had a genetic composition 30 per cent different from that of human beings, the report said, adding that carbon dating by the National Autonomous University of Mexico found the corpses were more than 1,000 years old.
The alleged alien corpses were discovered in Peru in 2017 and are believed to be 700 to 1,800 years old. They have three fingers, elongated skulls, and grey skin. Maussan said they were part of a “terrestrial evolution” that was not related to humans. He also claimed that one of the bodies had eggs inside it, suggesting a possible reproductive system.
However, not everyone was convinced by Maussan’s presentation. Some experts and skeptics pointed out that the bodies looked too human to be alien, and that they could be fabricated or modified from human or animal remains. They also noted that Maussan had a history of making dubious claims about alien discoveries, such as the “Roswell slides” in 2015, which turned out to be photos of a mummified child.
The event also sparked a lot of online discussion, with some users expressing interest and excitement about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Others were more skeptical and cynical, questioning the credibility and motives of Maussan and his team. Some also made jokes and memes about the appearance and origin of the alleged aliens.
