A UFO researcher has claimed that strange ‘alien’ remains allegedly unearthed in Nazca, Peru are a ‘new species of human’ – and ‘could be the most important find of the century’. He claims that the ‘mummies’ were unearthed in 2015, and have been touted as evidence of ‘ancient aliens’ by UFO fans – who claim that the creatures may have inhabited the Earth long before people did. UFO researcher Steve Mera says that DNA tests show one of the bodies is 98.5% primate, related to humans, and 1.5% ‘unknown’. Steve said: ‘We can confirm that we have evidence that the Maria body constitutes an incredible discovery.
A discovery that may cause us to alter our history books forever. She could be the most important discovery of the 21st Century. Others are sceptical – pointing to the fact that some of the ‘researchers’ involved in the find are trying to charge people to download information about this mysterious human race from their website.
The World Congress on Mummy Studies has described the find as a fraud, and calls it, ‘an irresponsible organized campaign of disinformation.’ Hoax debunking site Metabunk has a detailed analysis here, including the fact that Gaia.com, who made the documentary spreading the information about this so-called mummy find, has a history of creating videos promoting the idea of ancient aliens, none of which panned out into actual evidence.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual said: ‘I think the whole saga of finding these mummies is laughable and they are very probably fakes. ‘If you think about it how would humanoid aliens with three long fingers survive? They would be incredibly clumsy and it seems doubtful they would be capable of making a cup of tea let alone a flying saucer.
‘It also doesn’t look good that this Earth-shattering news was originally fed to us via a website you have to subscribe to, rather than through officially recognised scientific channels. ‘At the end of they day this is fake news delivered in a slick fashion to indulge our fascination with ancient aliens and UFOs.’
