Journalist José Jaime Maussan presented a pair of wooden boxes to Mexico’s Congress. Two men carefully removed the black lids. Inside, the mummified remains of two tiny creatures rested on white cushions.

According to Maussan, these beings came from outer space. Maybe.

On Wednesday, researchers from Mexico, Japan, Brazil, and the United States spoke to Mexico’s lawmakers. These researchers argued for the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

It’s a big year for alien-related congressional hearings. Two months ago, a similar session took place before the U.S. Congress. Retired Air Force intelligence officer David Grusch made bold claims. He said the United States recovered non-human remains from crashed UFOs. However, he couldn’t produce any evidence of those claims. One Pentagon official called the hearing “insulting.”

At this week’s meeting, researchers in Mexico presented evidence. Maussan claims his “alien mummies” come from Peru, deep beneath the Nazca desert. That area is known for strange carvings etched into the sand. These carvings are so large they can be viewed only from high above. Most experts attribute them to the ancient Nazca people.

Maussan says scientists at the National Autonomous University of Mexico analyzed the “alien mummies.” According to Maussan, those tests found the aliens to be 1,000 years old.

“It’s the queen of all evidence,” says Maussan.

Does this all sound a little far fetched to you? It does to scientists.

In 2017, Maussan presented “alien mummies” in Peru. Peruvian officials found the bodies were actually “recently manufactured dolls . . . covered with a mixture of paper and synthetic glue to simulate the presence of skin.”

But what about the scientists at the National Autonomous University of Mexico?

Julieta Fierro is a researcher at the university’s Institute of Astronomy. She says Maussan lied about the university’s endorsement. According to her, many details about the “alien mummies” don’t make sense.

“Maussan has done many things,” says Fierro. “He told me extraterrestrials do not talk to me like they talk to him because I don’t believe in them.”

Mexico’s Congress has not taken an official position on Maussan’s claims.

Some researchers take the idea of UFOs and extraterrestrial life seriously. Others see it as a quick path to fame. Before speaking to Mexico’s Congress, Maussan swore to tell the truth. Grusch made a similar promise to the U.S. Congress.

Did the men break their oaths for a moment of glory? Or do they really believe what they say?

Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. — Ephesians 4:25
