The absurd and silly UFO mystery site, UFO Sightings Daily, has managed to push this piece of ridiculousness into the media. When the best news source I can find for it is “Yahoo News”, it’s really crap.
Conspiracy theorists are in a bit of a flutter after the discovery of what the believe is an alien corpse near a nuclear power plant. The odd discovery of the apparent body with a “mysterious skull” in Russia has got UFO hunters excited at what could be evidence of life on other planets.
The “mysterious” thing has appeared on the usual tabloids – Daily Mail, Express, Daily Star – and David Icke’s site as well as the typical conspiracy forums. I really don’t think stories like this deserve any space except for the VERY SMALL CHANCE that someone might get the message that not everything you can’t readily identify is an “alien”. People really should get outside more.
This thing is not an alien and here’s why:
- It is made of the same structures as animals on earth are.
- It is not a complete body, obviously parts are missing.
- It could be a malformed embryo/fetus which is more likely than something not from earth.
- There are no detailed photos besides this and the story is from Russia – notorious for producing sensational tabloidy stuff. There is no scale in the photo so we don’t even know how large (or small) it is.
- There is currently no evidence of extraterrestrial life let alone something that looks like a messed up, incomplete immature animal.
- The source of this speculation is completely unreliable, so why are we even listening to them?
I’m still unclear why anyone would get their news from UFO Sightings Daily. The addition of “found near nuclear plant” just makes things more scary and suggests that science has gone wrong. Typically, that suggests the interpretation would be “MUTANT!” but this time, they went with the ALIEN! angle. Bor-ing.
I’m not going to speculate on what it might be because the photo is so poor. But there may be some professionals that can make an educated guess. I’d ask that commenters NOT do the same shit as mystery mongerers do and make UN-educated guesses. It’s better to say “I don’t know” than to promote wrong information. Of course, the media doesn’t agree with that.
