After ancient artifacts were discovered in Mexico, alien conspiracy theorists thought it to be “another” piece of evidence of alien life on Earth, and hurried to spread the news over social media. They claim that they have proof of the existence of aliens on our planet from ancient times, thanks to the ancient artifacts in Mexico.
What fired up these rumors is a video, which was posted on YouTube and quickly went viral. The video revealed photos of different sculptures which, in their appearance, look similar to our current depiction of aliens, with a strange head shape, and large black eyes. The video was posted by the YouTube account dubbed “UFOmania” and has had over 123,000 views since it was uploaded last Thursday.
Alien conspiracy theorists are deeply convinced that the figures belong to aliens. They actually suggested that aliens built the artifacts in the video, or that, perhaps, humans made them to express some emotion after having a close encounter with the creatures.

“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,” the video is captioned. “Fortunately, they did not give their Artefacts to the Smithsonian Institute and the like for further Analysis.”
Many social media users wanted to give their own responses regarding the video and they started questioning the integrity and origin of the ancient artifacts in Mexico.
“If they are confident that their [sic] relics of aliens why did they not get examined by the Smithsonian,” one user wrote in a comment on the video.
“Assuming these are genuine artefacts [sic], these are probably not depicting aliens,” another user commented. “Depicting humans with exaggerated features is something people have been doing for a long time. It’s called caricature.”
Not the first time
Conspiracy theorists getting fired up about the ancient artifacts in Mexico is not the first time they have tried to promote the existence of aliens on Earth. Earlier, they even claimed that some Mexican artifacts were built by aliens.
Some of them believe that Mexico’s holy city Teotihuacán, a famous archaeological site, was built by aliens, according to National Geographic. However, the conspiracy theorists don’t have evidence which can support their claims.
Nevertheless, the origins of that archaeological site are quite mysterious, as researchers don’t really know who built the ancient city, the History Channel reports. Scholars have an idea of how it came to be, however, but none of the theories include aliens.
Researchers suggest that the Toltec civilization built the city. Another possibility is that the immigrants that flooded that region after a volcanic eruption, built the whole region from scratch.
