The Holy Tribunal of the Inquisition in Mexico seemed to have no other choice but to believe Perez's story and subsequently released him from jail and sent him home. When Perez returned to the Philippines he took up his former position as a palace guard, living out the rest of his life in a seemingly uneventful and ordinary way.

An Unsolved Mystery

The story is an intriguing case on the topic of teleportation that has survived over 400 years. Some historians, such as Mike Dash, contend that the incident only appeared in texts a century after it supposedly took place and highly doubt its authenticity. Other sources say the story is credible and there are even documents which can attest to its genuineness that can be found in the archives in Sevilla and Mexico City. Like it was then, it remains today an unsolved riddle in history.

The ancient and mysterious Sphinx, Giza, Egypt.
In 1995, NBC televised a prime-time documentary hosted by actor Charlton Heston and directed by Bill Cote, called Mystery of the Sphinx. The program centered on the research and writings of John Anthony West, a (non-academic) Egyptologist, who, along with Dr. Robert Schoch, a professor of Geology at Boston University, made an astounding discovery on the Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
