From the article:

This may just be the latest in a never-ending line of alien hoaxes preying on the naivité of sci-fi fans and conspiracy theorists just to make a quick buck but at least there’s some improved production value this time.

Once I was firm believer that aliens visited in the distant past. Then I started asking myself one question; what attracted them here? No radio waves or television signals that would've announced our presence. Could it have been as simple as the Vulcans from Star Trek's, First Contact? They just happened to be in the neighborhood and detected life. I'm not talking about detecting faster that light travel, BTW.

The linked article offers the suggestion that it's just a fake:

Quote:
Watson’s theory that it’s simply a money-making scam bears weight, as attendees forked out a staggering $300 (£232) for the privilege of attending the conference and seeing the ‘aliens’ up close, according to Metro UK. It wouldn’t be the first time a hoax has earned the prankster some substantial money, and likely it won’t be the last.
Nothing to see here, folks.

I dont know why people try to make money from stuff which should be in the public domain. Like free energy it is such a monumental discovery that it belongs to all humans not just Joe Smoe who wants to make a quick buck or two. It is sad that there are such greedy people about.

It does not make it any more credible if he charges for entry to his press conference. They should open up the bodies to testing by many different scientists and get them to do the proper tests. This would find out one way or another.

There will be many opportunities to make money after these things have been proved beyond a doubt.

It is doubtful whether Snopes or anyone else has real information on this, so how can they make a pronouncement? Until the proper tests are done it is just as silly to listen to Snopes as it is to those who say it is real.

I used to live in Nasca.
There are all sorts of weird things there. Many, many graves. The position of the mummies is very similar to the positions of the mummies that are buried in large clay jars. There are many places you can go to and there are just mummies sitting in the corner of a old building or even a store....

The difference between Snopes and the guy making the claim is objectivity and reputation.

Snopes has no motive. If a rumour or legend is true, they state it. There is no financial gain or loss by saying it is fake. On the other hand, if they misstate things they lose credibility and thus internet traffic.

The guy making the claim on the other hand...well his reputation is not exactly stellar and him and this group "GIAI.COM" have a financial incentive in terms of pay-per-view video sites. Snopes is basing there claim on the overwhelming indication of fraudulent claims by this person James Mausen and related to this excavation area, one of which dates from 2015 and was scientifically debunked.

Even if this guy wasn't a scammer, it's far more likely that these are just mummified humans, like all the other mummies discovered in that area. He just finds them to be alien-like. It's like that saying "When you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail". In this case, when you are a UFO-logist, everything looks like an alien (or UFO).

So, more information has been extracted from these mummies in the last 2 years since this thread was started. There have been DNA investigations and the results are available online for everyone. The data is available to anyone with the resources to test it for themselves.

Scientists who actually studied Maria’s body confirm that no trace of manipulations has been found during their clinical observations. As a result, they conclude these hands are tridactyl in nature and have fingers with five phalanges, and are not either symptoms of congenital diseases.
