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

Many questions remain regarding this mummified body: If it is real, is this an example of a forgotten human species? Are the unique features deformities – either developmental or intentional? Could this be evidence of a non-human species? If proven true, what would this discovery mean for the study of human origins and the ancient past? To answer such questions, further examination of the find is required.

Thanks for your reply. I stand by my comment. There have to be some standards in any kind of journalism or publications would be full of unsuitable content. This article does a disservice to Ancient Origins. Some amateur YouTubers provided much more meaningful, concise, enlightening and relevant information on the topic.

Hi Luis,

I saw no claim in the article as to the validity of the finding, and nothing by the author regarding his personal opinion on the subject. The idea of the site is to present the facts,as they are known so that you and I, as the readers, may be prompted to do our own research on the subject and form our own opinion. It stimulates our curiosity to learn.

To remove an article because you or I, or anyone else did not agree with it’s content would be to go against the goal of the site itself, and THAT would destroy the credibility of the website.

I was excited when i saw this. a quick search on youtube and there are many videos that very clearly debunk this and shed some light on the sources, which happen to be shady. After watching them, the only paradigm that shifted was my trust in Ancient Origins. I ask the moderators to remove this post because it takes away credibility from this website, which has a lot of really great content.

General comment. As humans were developing would there not have been some 'side species' which never went anywhere and died out ? And surely also some abnormalities would have occurred just as they do today. Just a thought

Hi Kara,

Great Reply! It seems that we may share some common beliefs about the scientific community, and their rigid stance on anything which may challenge the current paradigm. As a critical thinker, I try to keep an open mind, and evaluate both sides of any claim before I make any decision, based on the evidence and the reliability of the sources of said evidence.

After my initial comment on the article, I began to research the subject, and frankly it appears that we have here just another case of the scientific community defending it’s position (no matter how untenable), against all challengers. Clearly a non-scientific method, but one which does provide great economic benefit to the researcher.

The lack of honesty, and close-mindedness within the scientific community is appalling, and I for one, cannot support those researchers who choose monetary gain over true science.

Human Origins

Map of sites and postulated migratory pathways associated with modern humans dispersing across Asia during the Late Pleistocene.
Most people are now familiar with the traditional "Out of Africa" model: modern humans evolved in Africa and then dispersed across Asia and reached Australia in a single wave about 60,000 years ago. However, technological advances in DNA analysis and other fossil identification techniques, as well as an emphasis on multidisciplinary research

Ancient Technology

The four-handled tureen adorned with dragons, birds and spikes
Chinese archaeologists have discovered ritual tureen and “soup bowls” next to a badly decomposed body in a Zhou dynasty-era tomb. Among the remains there were also uncovered two wine vessels, which experts suggest were probably used as part of the funerary rituals.

The City of Moundsville is located along the Ohio River in Marshall County, West Virginia. From the time of European settlement in the 1770s, Moundsville was regarded by antiquarians as one of the most significant ancient sites in North America. For it was here that the Adena mound builders and their descendants constructed the largest ceremonial center in the Upper Ohio Valley

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.
