Artifacts reportedly discovered in Mexico have been used as proof of close encounters with extraterrestrials. However, this claim is likely untrue.
Video uploaded by UFOMania - The truth is out there
Have extraterrestrials visited Earth in the past and interacted in some way with ancient humans? A number of people seem to believe so. However, there hasn’t been incontrovertible scientific evidence to convince the scientific community of the veracity of this claim. There are some bits and pieces of evidence, but none that have convinced most scientists.
Alien conspiracy theorists, however, haven’t really relied on scientists to tell them what’s true or not. When a YouTube video featuring alleged alien artifacts became viral, rumors of proof that humans had close encounters with aliens made the rounds. At the time of this writing, the video has been viewed on YouTube nearly 200,000 times since it was uploaded on January 25. There are those who believe that the artifacts featured in the video were either constructed by aliens or by humans who came into close contact with aliens.
Did aliens visit us and leave evidence of their stay here?
At first glance, the artifacts do indeed seem otherworldly. They depict humanoid forms with exaggerated features, like big heads and big elongated eyes with no pupils, reminiscent of the stereotypical way that aliens are portrayed.
“Many will know the Klaus Dona Artefacts. There are Tons more where they came from. More and more locals and farmers are showing their private Artefacts,” it says in the video. “Fortunately they did not give their Artefacts to the Smithsonian Institute and the like for further Analysis.”
Therein, of course, lies the problem. While many commenters on the video professed belief that the artifacts are not only real but evidence of alien life as well, others were skeptical. The artifacts have not been examined by any recognized and trusted entity or institution. The maker of the video did not even give any details on where the artifacts were found, how they were found, or where they are at present. All we know at this point is that the artifacts were allegedly found in Mexico. We’re not even sure if they were indeed found in Mexico, or if they were actually authentic.
"A bunch of stuff that kinda sorta looks alien-like to the untrained eye was allegedly found by someone, somewhere, somewhen," said one commenter. "Who wouldn't be convinced by that?"
Are the Klaus Dona Artefacts evidence of alien life?
The fact that the objects, wherever they are, haven’t been analyzed properly is a huge red flag. Even if the artifacts were indeed made in ancient times, there’s not enough evidence to be able to tell that they’re evidence of close alien encounters in ancient times. After all, humans have the propensity to exaggerate certain features when we depict ourselves in artwork.
Thus, until the Klaus Dona Artefacts have been submitted for scientific analysis, we should take any claims about it with a grain of salt. It’s also important to remember that it’s not like the scientific community is actively suppressing evidence of alien life. After all, there have been a lot of efforts geared toward finding incontrovertible and scientific proof that there are indeed extraterrestrials out there. Evidence of alien life is exciting, but it would be best if we didn’t get ahead of ourselves.
