Over the years, there have been plenty of hoaxes that have made their way into the news. People will try anything to get their coveted 15 minutes of fame, even if it means lying to the public about some sort of extraordinary “discovery.”
Some of the most popular hoaxes in history have had to do with the existence of extraterrestrial life. People love the idea that we may not be alone in the universe, and because of that, scammers try to get the public to believe all sorts of fraudulent stories.
But even experts were stunned by a claim from a group of paranormal researchers who came across something that they believed to be incredibly groundbreaking in Nazca, Peru…
Whenever a groundbreaking discovery is made, scientists won’t hesitate to weigh in with their thoughts. The evidence always needs to be examined closely to make sure that the finding is genuine. That said, a recent discovery in the city of Nazca, Peru, had experts all around the world scratching their heads…
That’s because group of self-proclaimed paranormal researchers claimed to have made some headway in the search for the existence of extraterrestrial life in the Peruvian city. The group inspected a particular item to determine whether it was genuine, and the results were so shocking that they announced their findings to the public as soon as they could.
The researchers were all staunch believers in the existence of alien life forms, and their search in Nazca yielded something that they claimed to be irrefutable evidence of just that. But what exactly was it that the team found that had them so convinced?
The group uncovered what appeared to be the mummified corpse of a humanoid being with an elongated skull and three fingers on each hand. It was eerily reminiscent of a human, but it was clear that it was not our species. The team was in complete awe at the discovery they’d made. Still, there was a great deal of research that needed to be done to determine the skeleton’s origins.
The body was covered from head to toe in a white powder when it was found. Experts on the paranormal team said the reasoning behind the powdered coating was to preserve the remains so they would last as long as possible. The group made several claims about the mysterious figure, in fact…
The team claimed that the body dated back to a time somewhere between 245 and 410 AD based on their carbon dating samples, though the validity of the tests had not yet been confirmed. There were plenty of people who were skeptical about the discovery, however, and they made it a point to speak out.
Leading UFO expert Nigel Watson pointed out that, when bodies are mummified, they tend to be much more “leathery looking.” The body that the team found appeared to be a plaster cast over a bone structure, which was an unusual way to store the remains of a corpse.
Another red flag that raised questions from skeptics was that Jamie Maussen, an ex-investigative journalist who was infamous for several extraterrestrial hoaxes, was involved in the Peruvian mummy discovery. This fact alone took a lot of credibility away from the finding. Maussen had been outed several times in the past for lying, and people just didn’t trust him.
Regardless of whether you believe in extraterrestrial life, what the team found was very unusual. Scientists and experts will continue to run tests to see if they can verify that this body was, at one time, some sort of living being.
Watch the entire video below for more details about the strange mummified body, and try to determine for yourself if there is legitimacy to what the researchers uncovered. And remember, the truth is out there somewhere…
It’s hard to say for sure if the body was actually an alien life form or just an intricate hoax meant to fool people. Hopefully, more tests will be administered to determine if the research team actually uncovered evidence that we are not alone in the universe! What do you think?
