Gaia TV-Jaime Maussan Mummy Fraud Exposed

The UFO Watchdog has an informative write-up chronicling the demise of yet another Jaime Maussan fraud: Gaia-Maussan Mummy Comes Unraveled. I can hardly wait until the next one. I wonder what’ll come first … a new phony end of the world date or another Maussan fiasco.

The article features a screenshot of the DNA report below along with commentary:

“This looks to be a single page from a forty-two page report and this page clearly states that a bone sample taken from the hand of the mummy was examined and found to be “a 100% match to Homo sapiens (human).”

There you have it in very plain words; the mummy is human.  End of story.  It should be, but now Gaia.com is saying the results were 99% in an attempt to muddy the waters so they can further attempt to propel this story in an effort to hook more subscribers.  It was predictable that Gaia would put some kind of spin on this to try to keep this story alive.  If Gaia.com was dedicated to the truth they make their mantra, then why have they not released the full DNA report?”

Nice rhetorical question.

Here’s another post on the same testing.

I sincerely hope that Peruvian archaeological authorities investigate everyone involved with an eye toward establishing that human remains were altered and desecrated. That might mean prison, which would be a happy ending.

RH Negative Blood: Alien-Nephilim-Hybrid Nonsense

A couple months ago my PEERANORMAL Podcast focused on this modern myth. Here’s a pretty thorough-but-readable essay on the RH nephilim silliness. It’s very informative.

I guess at a time when people are willing to believe the earth is actually flat and all ISS / NASA photographs of the earth are fakes it shouldn’t surprise me that science ignorance would lead to this absurdity. But maybe it’s that I just don’t want to believe people can be this gullible. I can’t laugh at something so troubling.

Elongated Skulls: Professional vs. Amateur Research

Below are three informative essays on elongated skulls that anyone interested in the topic should read. They are informative because they provide a good survey (and sources in the notes) of the sort of research professionals conduct on these skulls, and because they critique amateur efforts (Marzulli, Foerster efforts). The latter is important, as the essays note the foibles of amateur research by asking the kinds of questions about data and methodology that real experts ask — and expect to be addressed, because their own work has to account for the same items.

Some of the essays are old, which means amateur researchers ought to have taken note.

Update on Jaime Maussan’s Phony Peruvian Alien Mummy

If you’re following this story, this post from Archaeology Review is quite worthwhile: A Review of Jaime Maussan’s Alien Mummy from Peru.

The highlight is an X-Ray of the three-fingered alien hand hoax perpetrated by Maussan. Here’s a portion of the essay on that point:

Finally, there’s an excellent report written by Rodolfo Salas-Gismondi from the Department of Vertebrate Paleontology at the Natural History Museum in Lima, Peru titled, “Esta Es La Falsa Mano “alienígena” Que Los Científicos De Maussan Determinaron Anatómicamente Correcta Y Funcional (This the fake “alien” hand that Maussan’s scientists determined anatomically correct and functional).” The report is in Spanish, but here are some of the highlghts:

X-rays and expert identification says that the bones of the mummy’s “hand” are from two individuals. At least one is a sub-adult, probably a neonate.

The bones of the “hand” are actually arm and leg bones of a neonatal child. the bones of the “fingers” are from the metacarpal and phalanges of an adult. The bones are also arranged poorly with phibulas on either side of metacarpels. This is the sort of mistake you could expect from amateurs creating a plastered, fake alien/mummy. Maussan and company mixed the long bones of a child with the finger bones.

There are some fine X-ray images that show just how Maussan and his minions faked the hand.

And to add insult to injury, the review concludes with a note about the DNA report for the mummy. Yes, that’s a teaser …. (sort of).

The Racism Behind Ancient Alien Mummy Hoaxes

Yep. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When ancient alien theorists (or Christian North American nephilim “race” theorists) insist those are the explanations for impressive engineering and architectural work (think Nazca lines, mounds), what they’re saying is that indigenous populations were too stupid to accomplish these things. It’s embarrassing and misguided.

And people notice. But Jaime Maussan will make some money off it.

Here’s a recent piece from the Atlantic that’s worth the read: The Racism Behind Alien Mummy Hoaxes: Pre-Columbian bodies are once again being used as evidence for extraterrestrial life.

Update on Jaime Maussan’s Fake Alien Mummy Circus

The UFO Watchdog blog recently posted an update on the alleged alien mummy brought to Gaia TV by Jaime Maussan. Jaime of course has a long, glorious history of hoaxing.

You can read the update here in full, but it’s basically about how the World Congress on Mummy Studies (yes, that’s a real scientific organization) has issued a statement calling Jaime’s latest circus act a disinformation fraud. One wonders why Christian researchers focused on Peruvian elongated skulls haven’t tried to work with these professionals. . . . but let’s not digress. Here’s a Google translation of the World Congress on Mummy Studies statement posted at the UFO Watchdog site (original here):

Statement by the scientific community
About the fraud of alien mummies

Adherents to this document, members of the national and international scientific community, experts in the study and preservation of human remains (mummies and skeletons), communicate the following:
1.- for some time now, the alleged discovery of “Alien mummies” in our country has been publicized through an irresponsible organized campaign of disinformation.
2.- the published testimonies and images make it possible to affirm that these findings correspond, without any doubt, to human remains Colombian – the cultural heritage of the nation. Furthermore, the exclusion of the entire related archaeological context is absolutely contrary to the scientific research of this kind of cultural property.
3.- it is up to the authorities to make the corresponding complaints, since this ‘production’ has violated numerous national and international standards which ensure the defence of cultural heritage. We hope that these same authorities will ensure the proper protection and proper investigation of these remains, as well as their place of origin, in order to stop the huaqueo and trafficking of human remains. We also expect exemplary sanctions for those responsible for this predation of the heritage which is of all Peruvians and humanity.
4.- Finally, these illegal and criminal actions in a human body violate human dignity. In particular, the exploitation of pre-Columbian mummies carried out by these people, assaults and offends the Andean Culture, implying that their achievements were due to so-called ‘External Aid’.
The undersigned offer our best offices to work with the authorities to demonstrate our statements in the relevant bodies. We also offer to participate in activities that contribute to defending and highlighting the importance of our cultural heritage, legacy of our ancestors.

DECLARATION OF THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY REGARDING

THE FRAUD OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL MUMMIES

The subscribers of this document, members of the national and international scientific community, experts in the study and conservation of human remains (mummies and skeletons), communicate the following:

1.- In the last few months, the alleged discovery of “extraterrestrial mummies” in our country has been publicized through an irresponsible, organized disinformation campaign.

2.- Testimonies and published images on this case, allow to assert that these findings correspond undoubtedly to pre-Columbian human remains – Cultural Patrimony of the Nation, maliciously manipulated and even mutilated to obtain an ‘ad hoc’ appearance for commercial exploitation. Moreover, the exclusion of the entire related archaeological contexts is absolutely contrary to the scientific investigation of this kind of cultural finds.

3.- It is upon our authorities to make the corresponding accusations, since this ‘production’ has violated numerous national and international norms that watch for the defense of Cultural Heritage. We hope that these same authorities will seek the protection and correct investigation of these remains and their place of origin, in order to stop looting and trafficking of human remains. We also expect exemplary sanctions for those responsible of this depredation of heritage that is of all Peruvians and Humanity as a whole.

4.- Finally, the criminal abuse of corpses for petty ends violates human dignity in a profound way. Thus, exploitation of pre-Columbian mummies carried out by this organization, attacks and particularly offends the Andean Culture, implying that its achievements were due to an alleged ‘alien aid’.

We offer our best offices to collaborate with the authorities to demonstrate our statements in the corresponding instances. We also offer to participate in activities that would defend our patrimony and help educate the public about our ancestors and their legacy.

I don’t know what laws there are in Peru against mis-using an ancient corpse. That’s one method of how this specimen could have been faked. It may be a serious crime. I can only hope that all those responsible get caught and wind up in jail.

Jaime Maussan Is At It Again: Three-Fingered “Alien Mummy” Claim

Many readers will have seen the slick video report about an alleged “new species” mummy found in Peru.

This is a well-done video by Gaia TV, sure to appeal to the gullible. Lots of folks with white masks saying sciencey things (i.e., speculating with big words). Some of them even have degrees (which makes me wonder why no one let them use an actual lab for the “examination” — instead they did that on a roof top). Maybe some degree programs in science don’t use labs, or teach their grad students that lab conditions aren’t necessary for sound analysis. Oh, we get a CAT scan, too … one that honestly doesn’t show much. As if that can tell us anything (think about it — it’s going to detect skeletal structure and whatever is stretched over that, but not what any of that is made of, or the genetic profile). The specimen is of course unprovenanced (the video shows where it was purportedly found, but no actual extraction from said location). And conveniently there are three-fingered glyphs nearby. But I’m sure they didn’t find the glyphs first and them make a specimen to match after the fact. No, they wouldn’t do that …

Let me go out on a limb and say this will turn out to be a fake. All I really needed to know is that Jaime Maussan is at the center of it. (He of “Roswell slides” infamy — at least that was the last one). Here’s another Maussan hoax.

The Black Vault offers a succinct summary of some problems with the “specimen.” Here’s another one from Doubtful News.

I’m referenced in the Doubtful News piece. I had send them the link to the video the morning it appeared (not surprisingly, in my In Box). I offered my suggestions on how this could be faked (at least how I’d do it, based on the sort of chicanery that I suspected was behind the “demon fairy” silliness). Doubtful News didn’t get into the “how,” which I appreciate. It’ll be fun to see if I got at least some part of method right once this turns out to be a fraud. The Black Vault piece states the first and most obvious issue — this doesn’t look much like Peruvian mummies (there are a good number of them). It looks like a plaster cast … the creativity will be in what’s under the plaster.

Don’t mess with aliens, warns director Ridley Scott

Another chapter in the “Aliens” saga is about to be released, and that gives director and “Alien” franchise founder Ridley Scott a chance to talk to the media about aliens again. This time he is warning people not to mess with any visitors from advanced civilizations or else you might be “taken out.”

First, I have to brag a bit. Sorry. But as I write this I am excitedly awaiting a sneak peek of “Alien: Covenant,” the second prequel to the legendary franchise. While writing is not always lucrative, it can get you some perks, like early press movie screenings. The movie is set to officially release in the U.S. on May 19.

I am not as used to thrillers as I was when the first “Alien” movies came out, or even the first prequel, “Prometheus,” so I hope I do not squeal in the theater, or worse, wet myself in terror. This one is supposed to be pretty scary.

Even scarier than watching aliens wreak havoc on innocent human colonists seeking to find a new life on an extraterrestrial planet is the real-life prospect of getting annihilated by visitors from outer space.

“I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely,” Scott recently told  Agence France-presse (AFP). “An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, ‘Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.”

However, if you “see a big thing in the sky,” Scott says you better run for it. Because, according to Scott, “they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.”

In his movies, Scott’s aliens dispatch humans even faster than that.

This, of course, is not the first time Scott has shared his ideas about extraterrestrial life. In the first of the “Alien” prequels, “Prometheus,” suggested that life on earth was seeded by an intelligent alien species. This idea is the focus of the television series Ancient Aliens, and was referred to as the “ancient astronaut theory” in the 70s. It was popularized by a series of books written by Eric van Daniken. Books that Scott has apparently read.

While promoting “Prometheus” in 2011, Scott told the Hollywood Reporter:

NASA and the Vatican agree that is almost mathematically impossible that we can be where we are today without there being a little help along the way . . . That’s what we’re looking at (in the film), at some of Eric van Daniken’s ideas of how did we humans come about.

One of my favorite scenes from “Prometheus” is when the protagonists are landing their spaceship in a valley surrounded by mountains. It is a beautiful shot. At the far end of the valley is a mountain that looks like an ancient extraterrestrial ruin, and, of course, it turned out it was.

Scott’s reference to the growing belief that life must exist elsewhere in the universe, coupled with the burgeoning private space industry, makes his version of the future more and more likely. The idea that humans may discover ancient alien relics one day, like in the landing scene, fuels my deep interest in these topics. I just hope that when, or if, we do discovery intelligent alien life, it has more regard for us earthlings than the aliens in Scott’s movies.

Fortunately, I would argue, most scientists do not share Scott’s pessimistic outlook on our galactic neighbors. Sure, Stephen Hawking is often talking about how aliens might treat us like the Europeans treated Native-Americans, but others, such as Carl Sagan and Michio Kaku disagree. In fact, Time Magazine recently posted an article on why scientist do not think aliens will eat us.

So sleep tight tonight, and do not fear being mauled by aliens (fingers crossed). However, I will not blame you if you take Scott’s advice and run the opposite direction if you see a UFO. Better safe than sorry, right?
