Alleged Mummy found at Nazca, clearly has three fingers and toes

Paradigm Shift Required? 3-Fingered Mummified Humanoid Found in Peru May Change the Story of Human Origins

(Read the article on one page)

A remarkable mummified body has been discovered in Nazca, Peru. While mummies can draw attention, this particular find may alter the story of human origins. The crouched mummified body of a humanoid figure with an elongated skull and three fingers on each hand is certainly fascinating, but is it real? And if it is, what could it tell us about human history?

Open-minded scientists studying human origins may find themselves in a situation where they have to identify this surprising discovery as true, probable, or a false find. It is important in these situations to remain curious yet skeptical. Numerous hoaxes have been taken as fact in archaeological history, but there are just as many (or more) factual finds that have been discredited for not fitting into mainstream science. As shown with the recent unearthing of 300,000-year-old remains in Morocco, the history of humanity is always transforming. We should keep an open mind yet stay apprehensive about jumping to conclusions on new discoveries, even if they seem incredible at first.

Jaime Maussan , an investigative journalist from Mexico, first introduced this find to Gaia filmmakers. They joined a team of researchers and scientists just outside of Nazca to investigate the story of the mummified body. A video discussing the analysis of results so far suggests that the body may be unique to the known fossil record.

One of the lead scientists examining this case is Dr. Konstantin Korotkov , a professor at Saint-Petersburg University. Dr. José de Jesús Zalce Benítez, Forensic expert at the National School of Medicine of Mexico, and Natalia Zaloznaja MD PhD, Head of image analysis of the Medical Institute MIBS, also participated in the initial examinations.

The body measures 168cm (5’6”) tall and has proportions very similar to humans. Features that set the individual apart however are the three long fingers on each hand and the elongated skull and lack of nose and ears (with only holes in these areas.) Dr. Korotkov asserts in the video that these features are not a deformity, but the individual is “another creature, another humanoid.”

This is not the only example of an elongated skull found in Peru. The ‘ Paracas skulls ’ are the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world. They number more than 300 and were found in a graveyard in Paracas, Peru. Some of these skulls date back around 3,000 years. The reason for the shape of these skulls has long been debated, as have their origins. DNA testing of the skulls placed their origins in Europe and the Middle East. Other strange features of these elongated skulls are the different location of the foramen magnum, where the spinal cord attaches to the skull, from normal human skulls and their larger size and heavier weight.

Returning to the mummified body found near Nazca, it is covered in a white powder which was apparently used to dry the skin and preserve the remains. It gives the skin a greyish appearance. The internal organs are said to be intact.

Carbon dating of samples from the body show dates between 245 – 410 AD. DNA sequencing is currently underway. Melissa Tittl, Gaia’s Director of Original Content, says in the video that further analysis of CAT scan results is also in progress.

M.K. Jesse, a Musculoskeletal Radiologist at the University of Colorado Hospital, told Gaia that it seems unlikely anyone made changes to the skull or hands to provide their unique appearance.

Senior Director of Content for Gaia, Jay Weidner, says that petroglyphs located near the mummified body show three-fingered humanoid figures as well. Dr. Korotkov pointed out that there are many other examples of three-fingered figures in South American iconography – could these depictions have been based on reality? Or are they only art?


Fascinating discovery. Please keep me posted.

who could not see a scapula ? I could, clearly.
Main problem is the lack of opposable thumb. Without that this creature would be very restricted in what it could do. Did not see a mention of only three toes, either. or did I miss that? There is a simian look to the scull x-ray. If this was really old it might possibly be considered a missing link, but the date throws that up into the air. Comparisons should be made with other three toed creatures as part of the investigations.

If it is a fake or hoax, it is a very elaborate one. And it still wouldn't explain the petroglyphs. The lack of an opposable thumb is a problem, however, as you have noted. It would require some very unusual finger musculature to manipulate objects, without an opposable digit.. IF this is a genuine skeleton, we can rewrite the history books for sure!! Another thing, unrelated to this skeleton, that is becoming very interesting is the renewal of the Rh Negative blood factor controversy. It now appears there is too much evidence to sweep under the rug, and with less than 3% of Asians, and less than 1% of Blacks having the factor, but upwards of 15% of the Caucasoid population bearing the factor (more than 35% of the Basques!), this once again raises the specter of the Liberals worst nightmare......the deliberate genetic manipulation of a small group of Caucasoid people by "aliens" around 6-8000 BC (think Sumerians!).
Which would just happen to explain the sudden rise of Caucasoid civilization and explain the source of their newfound, vast, knowledge of literally everything from "A-Z." It would also blow the "out-of-Africa" theory all to hell and back. Even conventional geneticists are now admitting this factor does not appear to be a product of "natural evolution." There are 611 other species of primates on earth, aside from humans, and NOT ONE OF THEM has the Rh Negative factor. Kinda hard to explain this anomaly away by "conventional means!!" Things are heating up in the "alien intervention" possibilities!!

History is nowhere near as well known as we think it is.

It's a fake and not a very good one either. The first clue is that the article fails it provide a still photo of the CAT scan. The second it that the video glosses over the CAT very quickly. However, if you look carefully, you can see that the bony structure of the arms in anatomically impossible. There is no scapula, nor does there appear to be a proper elbow joint. It also must be noted that the CT scan shows the thoracic cavity in cross section and yet, all four limbs are visible. My best guess is that this is a chimera created from boned and plaster.

This specimen (the hands) looks pretty similar to a mummyfied hand discovered along other remains of "beings".
The remarkable thing about the hand was that it only had the oddly long fingers with 6 limbs, heres the article on it on ancient origins.

it's sad that it is so hard to tell weather one should be excited about this. (the believer inside wants to say yes finally the time for disclosure has come. Such a discovery related to a place like Nazcar that itself has been the center of controversy and theories in the field of ancient human origins and E.T.s is awesome.)
On the other hand side it seems one has to stay alert not only might those discoveries be a hoax but even if this is another drop of disclosure given to us it is just that. a drop that even if it gets put into historical context by "official" people / established mainstream science its probably not going to be "the whole truth accurate".

But I must say I find it very exciting especially in a time where several European governments have released their UFO files to the public, the leaders of the world on political and even religious levels have begun to publicly accept / open up towards the E.T. issue.
With this general public standing and the rumous about even more upcoming disclosures - hinted at the discovery of an advanced civilisation in antartica that was lost there in the last cataclysmic event on this planet 12800 years ago - it becomes pretty clear that maybe sooner then later there will be very big changes in our understanding of us, our humanity, history and how we conduct our society right now. But if this happens we must remain vigilant and critical about everything we are told and we have to push for even more secrets to be lifted and Public research has to be done on worldwide monolithic structures.

I will finish this comment with a momory of a book i once read (People of the World, Relax by Tom Robbins) which some of you might enjoy it actually has alot to do with Pyramids and somehow the prophecy of the Virgin Mary at Fatima which according to the book says "Ne next big revelation in a spiritual sence that will occur to humanity is going to come from the direction of a Pyramid"

Now is the time to end Speculation, unveil the truth and connect the dots so we as a human species can really collectively evolve (and in some sonces also come back) towards cosmic and spiritual greatness.

Myths & Legends

A vase-scene from about 410 BC. Nimrod/Herakles, wearing his fearsome lion skin headdress, spins Noah/Nereus around and looks him straight in the eye. Noah gets the message and grimaces, grasping his scepter, a symbol of his rule - soon to be displaced in the post-Flood world by Nimrod/Herakles, whose visage reveals a stern smirk.
The Book of Genesis describes human history. Ancient Greek religious art depicts human history. While their viewpoints are opposite, the recounted events and characters match each other in convincing detail. This brief article focuses on how Greek religious art portrayed Noah, and how it portrayed Nimrod in his successful rebellion against Noah’s authority.

Ancient Technology

The School of Athens
Much of modern science was known in ancient times. Robots and computers were a reality long before the 1940´s. The early Bronze Age inhabitants of the Levant used computers in stone, the Greeks in the 2nd century BC invented an analogue computer known as the Antikythera mechanism. An ancient Hindu book gives detailed instructions for the construction of an aircraft –ages before the Wright brothers. Where did such knowledge come from?

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.
