Mexico’s Congress heard testimony from experts who study extraterrestrials on Tuesday.
And the hearing started with a huge surprise.
Jaime Maussan, a self-described ufologist, brought two caskets into the congressional chambers. As Maussan spoke, two men uncovered the caskets, to reveal two bodies.
The corpses looked white and like stereotypical depictions of aliens — big head, little body, three fingers. Maussan said they were found in Peru in 2017 and are estimated to be 1,000 years old. One of the bodies had been pregnant, he claimed.
“These are not mummies,” he said. “These are complete bodies that have not been manipulated.” Speaking under oath, Maussan claimed the bodies were nonhuman.
Maussan and others have presented similar claims about alleged alien remains in the past. Scientists have dismissed them as either ancient Peruvian mummies or manipulated mummies.
During Tuesday’s hearing, José de Jesús Zalce Benítez, a forensic expert and a military doctor, walked the Congress through scans of the alleged alien bodies.
He claimed the alleged aliens had big brains and big eyes — “which allowed for a wide stereoscopic vision” — and they lacked teeth, so they likely only drank and did not chew.
The hearing also included remarks by Ryan Graves, executive director of the Americans for Safe Aerospace organization. A former Navy fighter pilot, Graves was one of three U.S. veterans who testified in front of a U.S. congressional subcommittee investigating the existence of UFOs in July.
Mexico’s Congress also was shown videos of Mexican pilots struggling to make sense of fast-moving flying objects before them.
“We are not alone,” Maussan claimed.
