The Truth is out there, but not in the Mexican Congress. Scientists ignore the claims made during a hearing there during a presentation about “beings that are not part of evolution on Earth”.

Mexican ‘ufologist’ José Jaime Maussan presented two coffins at the meeting containing what he said were the mummified remains of bizarre creatures with three fingers and elongated heads. ET can clearly be recognized in it. According to Maussan, scientists have determined that thirty percent of their DNA material cannot be traced.

“This is the height of evidence,” he told parliamentarians yesterday. “If the DNA shows it’s not about people and nothing else in the world looks like that, then we have to accept that.” He just didn’t want to talk about extraterrestrial life. The bold story was quickly picked up worldwide, including by serious news media.

‘Not taking seriously’

Scientists react extremely skeptically to the presentation, such as emeritus professor of theoretical astronomy Vincent Icke of Leiden University. Asked how seriously the revelation should be taken, his short answer is: “Well, not.”

“I don’t think there is a single scientist in the parliament of Mexico. We really don’t have to take this seriously,” is his assessment.

The figure in his coffin

The famous British physicist Brian Cox thinks that a possible mystery can be easily solved. “Submit a sample for a DNA test or ask the local university and you will know within ten minutes.”

Cox has a problem with the traditional image of aliens as little green men. “They are really far too human. It is very unlikely that intelligent life on another planet would evolve like we do.”

University is distancing itself

Maussan says he found the mummies in 2017 near Nazca, Peru. That location is famous among UFO enthusiasts for its prehistoric landscape lines: according to them, the complicated animal patterns there, measuring tens of meters in size, could have been made with extraterrestrial help.

The mummies are said to have been found deep underground in a gravel mine. According to Maussan, research has shown that they are between 700 and 1,800 years old.

What does not make his claim any more credible is that the Peruvian authorities already had his claims tested in the same year. The conclusion then was that they were recently made dolls covered with paper and glue to simulate skin. Because Maussan did not give a presentation at the time, it is not clear whether these are the same figures.

In addition, a Mexican university hastened to distance itself from the presentation. Maussan claimed to be working with the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, but a press release clarified that it only carried out a carbon dating assignment. The researchers received 0.5 grams of material without knowing where it came from. “We draw no conclusions at all about the origin of these samples.”


Faced with all the criticism, ruling party parliamentarian Sergio Gutiérrez Luna says it is important to listen to “all expressions, all opinions”. He emphasizes that Congress is not taking a position. “We have our thoughts, our concerns and we will continue to discuss this.” he said.

The meeting in Mexico came a day before NASA presents a report on how best to investigate phenomena that appear to be of extraterrestrial origin. The American space agency has already hinted that too few concrete events have been recorded to draw scientific conclusions.

Yet this is a presentation that astronomer Icke is looking forward to. He expects the researchers to list how some UFO sightings can be explained. Maybe that mysterious phenomenon in the sky was just swamp gas, a weather balloon, or the planet Venus. “And I suspect that in the end they will say: there are other things, we are still working on them.”

He certainly does not want to call these phenomena ‘inexplicable’, preferring to call them ‘not yet explained’. “We have never encountered an inexplicable phenomenon,” he explains. “But it is conceivable that our human brain is not capable of understanding certain things. We have to consider that possible.”
