Suffice to say, the response to Jaime Maussan 'alien corpses' revelation in Mexico City this week has been less than favorable.
A few days ago, Maussan - a controversial figure even in the UFO community - presented what he claimed to be two alien bodies at a formal congress hearing in Mexico City.
Supposedly found buried between the Peruvian cities of Palpa and Nazca in 2017, the two bodies reportedly contained 'unknown' DNA and were - as Maussan put it - "not from this Earth."
Unsurprisingly, given the high-profile and official nature of the presentation, the alleged aliens have since generated a great deal of skepticism from the scientific community with the vast majority of scientists condemning the whole thing as abject nonsense.
Of particular note is the fact that these bodies were presented before in 2017 and 2018 when most experts maintained that they were simply human remains that had been physically manipulated.
"Let me tell you that all this is complete nonsense," Rafael Bojalil-Parra of Mexico City's Metropolitan Autonomous University (UAD) told Live Science
"That our congress gives a forum to this self-proclaimed ufologist is a reflection of the anti-scientific mood that prevails in our country today."
His sentiments were echoed pretty much across the board.
"It is sad to see the well debunked claims of Jaime Maussan returning to the internet," Andrew Nelson of Western University in Ontario told Live Science
"[The bodies] are human mummies that had been deliberately manipulated to appear alien."
