Scientists have informed the Mexican Congress that an examination of mummified remains purported to be evidence of non-human life has revealed that they are genuine. Experts, however, declined to say whether they thought the samples, which were first presented to the legislature in September, were of extraterrestrial origin.
Jaime Maussan, a journalist and self-proclaimed UFO expert, first presented the diminutive humanoid figures to the lower chamber of the Mexican Congress two months ago, claiming they were discovered in Peru. Maussan stated in his presentation to lawmakers that they were proof of “non-human beings that are not part of our terrestrial evolution.”
“They’re real,” Roger Zuniga, an anthropologist at San Luis Gonzaga National University, told Reuters on the sidelines of a three-hour legislative session on the three-fingered man on Tuesday.
“There was absolutely no human intervention in the physical and biological formation of these beings,” he said, adding that scientists had closely studied five similar samples over a four-year period.
Zuniga also presented the Mexican Congress with a letter signed by 11 researchers from the university who had reached the same conclusion. However, it stressed that they were not concluding the mummified remains to be “extraterrestrial.”
Dr. Daniel Mendoza, who also spoke at the session on Tuesday, showed X-rays and photographic images of the samples, referring to them as “non-human beings.” Maussan claimed that because the corpses lacked lungs and ribs, they were evidence of a “new species.”
After it was revealed that Maussan had made a similar claim in 2017, September’s presentation sparked widespread online scrutiny and speculation that it was a hoax. Analysis revealed that the samples were “recently manufactured dolls, which have been covered with a mixture of paper and synthetic glue to simulate the presence of skin.”
When asked about previous samples, Zuniga said they were most likely forgeries. He did, however, add that the remains he and his colleagues had recently studied were very real and had at one point been living organisms.
Sergio Gutierrez, a congressman from Mexico’s ruling Morena party, said the evidence shown during Tuesday’s session proves that the country’s officials should release all the information it has on UFOs, now more formally known as UAP (Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena).
