Mexicos Congress, or camara de diputados, is often the sight of a wild degree o silliness.
But things really did get a bit out of control when the ufologist, Jaime Mausan, presented the remains of alleged bodies of aliens during a session of Congress.
The so-called extraterrestrials turned out to be two “mummies” found in the Nazca region of Peru.
Scientists from Mexico, Brazil, the United States, and Japan were quick to come out to debunk Mausan’s “charade.”
Specialists also noted the similarities between the so-called alien corpses presented to Mexico’s Congress and a remarkably similar hoax documented in 2017.
But Mausan argued that if we have the courage to accept “that we are being visited by non-human intelligent beings that come to Earth from the depths of the universe, we could even travel to other universes.”
While most in Mexico feel rather embarrassed by the situation, plenty of folks out there sing Mr. Mausan’s praises.
Jaime Mausan is a well-known public figure in Mexico who, for decades, has made outlandish claims of alien visitations as well as artifacts.
Though he is often presented as a scientist, his academic studies are limited to under one year of studies at Méxicos UNAM University and a two-year program in TV and Radio Broadcasting from a College in Miami.
In 1989, Maussan founded the program Tercer Milenio, which quickly became one of Mexico’s most popular television shows. In the program, Maussan presents testimonies from eyewitnesses of paranormal phenomena and expert analysis on the subject.
Maussan has been the subject of criticism from some skeptics, who question the veracity of the evidence he presents on his show. However, Maussan has defended himself by stating that his work is serious, professional, and committed to the search for the truth.
Even though his claims have been proven on several occasions to be questionable at best, Maussan has carved a niche for himself in Mexican popular culture and entertainment.
