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...

The Sad Demise of MUFON

If you have a sustained interest in the subject of UFOs and their investigation, you’ve heard of MUFON (Mutual UFO Network). This at-one-time important grass roots network has been steadily sliding toward irrelevance (see here and here for past issues).

In the early days, MUFON did some valuable research and investigation. It lost its way on the trail of sensationalism (and what others call “retail ufology”), but the current status is a living caricature. I...

By now I’ve probably received a heads up on the story about Canaanite DNA disproving the biblical conquest narrative a dozen times. Here’s my own heads-up: If you see some “news” about the Bible in mass media, you can presume it’s click-bait archaeoporn that will invariably get something wrong. This latest was no exception. I won’t bore you with the details (you can read the link above if you want). Basically, no (including some of the scholars quoted in the articles) bothered to look at the totality of the conquest narrative. It’s quite clear that not all the Canaanites...

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....
