MEXICO CITY — Mexican lawmakers gathered for an extraordinary hearing on UFOs, marking the Latin American country’s first congressional event on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP), commonly known as UFOs.
During the hearing, politicians were presented with two peculiar artifacts, which Mexican journalist and UFO enthusiast, Jaime Maussan, claimed to be the remains of extraterrestrial beings.
These small “bodies,” showcased in display cases, had three fingers on each hand and elongated heads. Maussan asserted that they were discovered in Peru near the ancient Nazca Lines in 2017 and dated to be approximately 1,000 years old through carbon dating conducted by Mexico’s National Autonomous University (UNAM).
However, it’s worth noting that similar findings in the past have turned out to be mummified children.
Maussan emphasized that this was the first time such evidence had been presented and stated, “I think there is a clear demonstration that we are dealing with non-human specimens that are not related to any other species in our world, and that all possibilities are open for any scientific institution to investigate it.”
Jose de Jesus Zalce Benitez, Director of the Scientific Institute for Health of the Mexican navy, reported that X-rays, 3-D reconstructions, and DNA analysis had been conducted on the remains, and he affirmed, “I can affirm that these bodies have no relation to human beings.”
UNAM, on the other hand, clarified that their work in 2017 was solely intended to determine the age of the samples, and they did not draw conclusions about the origin of the samples.
The hearing also featured former U.S. Navy pilot Ryan Graves, who shared his personal experiences with UAP and discussed the stigma surrounding such sightings.
Congressman Sergio Gutierrez, from President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s ruling Morena party, expressed hope that this hearing would be the first of many similar events in Mexico, stating, “We are left with reflections, with concerns, and with the path to continue talking about this.”
In recent years, the U.S. government has become more open about UAP investigations after decades of secrecy. The Pentagon has actively looked into reported sightings by military aviators, and NASA, for the first time, has convened a panel to study UFOs.
NASA is scheduled to discuss findings from this study on Thursday.
It’s important to note that Maussan’s presentation faced criticism from skeptics who questioned the authenticity of the evidence, potentially impacting efforts to take the issue seriously.
