  • THE WAIKY ALIEN MUSEUM ANDAHUAILLILLAS CUSCO Anthropologist Renato Dávila Riquelme is the director of the Andean Rites Museum in the district of Andahuaylillas in the province of Quispicanchi. In his museum he has bone remains of various kinds, but there is a piece from his collection that has risen to fame in recent days. It is the skeleton of a creature with a length of about 50 cm, with a disproportionate skull, large eye sockets, an open fontanel (something typical of young infants) and molar dentition. After the superficial assessment made by two Spanish doctors and a Russian who arrived at the museum two weeks ago, who were surprised by the remains, and after analyzing the mummy they agreed to point out that these characteristics are not those of a human being. No DNA tests have been done. It has not been subjected to any specialized scientific study. So why the hell are we talking about alien mummy? I am not sure if it is Renato himself who is inventing this story to draw attention to himself and his museum, or if he has been the victim of the incompetence or imposture of the doctors he speaks of, which has led him to jump into the void. HE IS HUMAN FOR SURE. This is how it manifests: Dr. Alfonso Sánchez Hermosilla, forensic anthropologist of the Institute of Legal Medicine of Cartagena "It is a baby of a few months, with a serious congenital malformation that undoubtedly caused his death shortly after birth. The shape of the skull is due to congenital hydrocephalus, one of his many malformations. Being a baby of less than a year, it is logical that the anterior fontanel is open The frontal bone divided in two is normal in a baby, but in addition, 10% of the world population, of all ethnic groups, preserves the frontal bone in adulthood divided. I have it, and I am not an alien, to give an example. The presence of the so-called epactal bone, or Inca bone, confirms its Amerindian ethnic origin. The presence of teeth, which by the way are milk, and not definitive, does not it is uncommon in newborns, especially in the context of severe congenital malformations. In short, another case of rare human remains. Sick humans, yes, but humans, and nothing more."
