This is the moment a UFO investigator presented two allegedly ‘non human’ bodies to a congress full of astonished officials.
The researchers made the extraordinary claim that the corpses, supposedly recovered from a mine in Cusco, Peru, were not part of ‘our terrestrial evolution’, with 30 per cent of their genetic composition still ‘unknown’, according to Mexican media.
Carbon dating by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) found the bodies, pictured with three-fingered hands, no teeth and stereoscopic vision, were more than 1,000 years old, Maussan claimed.
But the bizarre presentation has already triggered skepticism online with some joking that the bodies were ‘mutated cats’. Unusually for fossils that have been subjected to analysis, the specimens were coated in what appeared to be sand.
But Maussan – who has been associated with debunked alien theories in the past – said under oath on Tuesday: ‘These specimen are not part of our terrestrial evolution. These aren’t beings that were found after a UFO wreckage. They were found in diatom [algae] mines, and were later fossilized.’
He later added: ‘Whether they are aliens or not, we don’t know, but they were intelligent and they lived with us. They should rewrite history.’
The bodies shown at congress were roughly humanoid in shape.
