Three-Fingered Mummy Updates From Rome Mummy Conference

If you want the latest news on the controversial three-fingered Peruvian possibly-alien mummies allegedly found in the Nazca desert, the place to go would be … Rome? Good guess. With the disgust that the Peruvian government, public and antiquities experts seem to have towards the Gaia.com “project” which is slowly and pay-as-you-go-ly (it’s a new word coined especially for this project) revealing its “discoveries,” and the lack of mainstream media coverage outside of Express.uk.co, UFO Today has stepped up with on-location coverage of a mummy conference held in Rome on October 1, 2017, featuring one of the “experts” from the three-fingered mummy “project.”

Paulo Paganelli was UFO Today’s reporter at the Evento Mondiale A Roma Le Incredibili Mummie Deserto Di Nazca (World Event In Rome: The Incredible Mummies Desert Of Nazca) in Rome and he sent in detailed coverage of the presentation by Konstantin Korotkov, a professor at St. Petersburg Polytechnic in Russia and the designated scholarly expert on the project.

The first portion of Korotkov’s presentation, according to Paganelli, covered details already released in the videos from Gaia.com or in subsequent interviews. He emphasized that analyses of the chemical composition of the bones in the largest of the mummies showed consistency throughout – which he said is an indication that the body was not assembled from other bodies or bones. He also reiterated the recent news that the first DNA analysis was done by five independent labs in the U.S., Russia and Mexico and showed that the DNA was very close, but not identical, to human. Finally, he restated his opinion that CT scans show the mummies were once living non-human beings that did not suffer from mutilations (like skull elongation) or genetic defects.

Korotkov also talked about one big non-human discovery – the objects that look like eggs in one of the females. He claimed that he’s negotiating with the “owner” of the mummies to allow him to biopsy one of the eggs. As always with these mummies, it seems strange that the “owners” – whoever they are – are so restrictive with even their own so-called team members.

With that our of the way, Paganelli says that Korotkov then addressed the politics and controversies surrounding the three-fingered mummies. He claimed that the project has contacted the Peruvian government numerous times by letter and offered to let its researchers join in, but have received no response. (Maybe they should try tweets?) He seemed to be frustrated that mummy specialists will not participate but nonetheless criticize the project. (Maybe if it were free?) The mummies cannot legally be taken out of the country because the government has not identified their legal status.

That last point may cause a problem. Korotkov revealed that Russian researchers are interested in analyzing the mummies, but American scientists are not. (He’s Russian, remember?) He also says that the mummies are not being properly preserved (pictures show them being carried around using their arms as handles) and moisture is causing rapid deterioration.

The report from the Rome conference is interesting. Konstantin Korotkov is not the most credible of experts, but the bar is pretty low on the three-fingered mummy team. However, it’s good to see someone talking about them outside of Peru and independent of the rest of the Gaia.com group.

Again, kudos to UFO Today and Paulo Paganelli for covering the event.
