The ‘alien corpses’ that have been presented to the Mexican Congress have garnered the world’s attention, but the authenticity of the bodies has been called into question.
However, upon testing by doctors, the ‘corpses’ were found to have no relation to human beings. Additionally, one scientist even deemed one of the bodies to be “alive” and “in gestation.”
The bodies were recovered from Cusco in Peru, with one said to be 1,800 years old and the other 700 years old. One has been named Clara, and the other Mauricio.
Journalist turned alien expert Jaime Maussan presented the bodies to Mexico’s Congress in Mexico City, in the country’s first hearing on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena. Maussan testified while under oath that the mummified beings are not part of humankind’s “terrestrial evolution”.
“These aren’t beings that were found after a UFO wreckage. They were found in diatom (algae) mines, and were later fossilised,” he continued, per LADBible.
The bodies are said to only have 3 fingers on each hand, with thirty percent of their DNA being deemed ‘unknown’.
“It’s the queen of all evidence,” he claimed.
“That is, if the DNA is showing us that they are non-human beings and that there is nothing that looks like this in the world, we should take it as such.”
“The public has a right to know about non-human technology and non-human entities,” he said.
“We are talking about a topic that unites humanity, not separates us. We are not alone in this vast universe, we should embrace this reality.”
However, as much as Maussan and the wider UFO enthusiast community is excited about this potentially huge discovery, at least one scientist has come forward to debunk the likelihood of their being real aliens.
Julieta Fierro of the Institute of Astronomy at the National Autonomous University of Mexico said that, despite Maussan’s claims, her university does not support his claims. She added that certain details of the case ‘made no sense’.
“Maussan has done many things. He says he has talked to the Virgin of Guadalupe,” Fierro said. “He told me extraterrestrials do not talk to me like they talk to him because I don’t believe in them.”
Maussan has been linked to multiple similar alien-involved cases that have all been debunked, so it is understandable that the scientific community are reluctant to believe the latest claims.
However, there is still hope that the ‘corpses’ might just be real. The Noor Clinic has run tests on the bodies, and Doctor José Zalce Benitez, director of the Health Sciences Research Institute, declared that the bodies had not been assembled, and hence were their own single skeletons.
The tests showed that ‘there is no evidence of any assembly or manipulation of the skulls’, indicating that there is hope that these bodies are authentic.
“I can affirm that these bodies have no relation to human beings,” he added.
Benitez has further said that Clara was “alive, was intact, was biological and was in gestation.”
Benitez had previously said to Reuters: “Based on the DNA tests, which were compared with more than one million species … they are not related to what is known or described up to this moment by science or by human knowledge.”
However, Benitez’s research is yet to be verified, with Dr David Spergel asking why the findings haven’t been made public.
Spergel said, per the BBC: “He said: “If you have something strange, make samples available to the world scientific community and we’ll see what’s there.”
