Cemetary of Giant Creatures: Hoax for the third time

Cemetery of giant creatures found in Central Africa
June, 24 2011



"Pravda

A team of anthropologists found a mysterious burial in the jungle near the city of Kigali Rwanda (Central Africa).



The remains belong to gigantic creatures that bear little resemblance to humans. Head of research group believes that they could be visitors from another planet who died as a result of a catastrophe.
According to the scientists, they were buried at least 500 years ago. At first, researchers thought that they came across the remains of ancient settlements, but no signs of human life have been found nearby.

The 40 communal graves had approximately 200 bodies in them, all perfectly preserved. The creatures were tall - approximately 7 feet. Their heads were disproportionately large and they had no mouth, nose or eyes.

The anthropologists believe that the creatures were members of an alien landing, possibly destroyed by some terrestrial virus to which they had no immunity. However, no traces of the landing of the spacecraft or its fragments were discovered.

This is not the first such finding. In the summer of 1937 a group of Chinese scientists led by Professor Chi Putei surveyed the caves of Mount Bayan-Kara-Ula. Inside they found skeletons with excessively large heads and puny bodies. Nearby there were 176 stone plates. In the center of each plate there was a hole from which a spiral groove spread out to the perimeter with some characters on it.

In addition, the cave walls were covered with pictures of the rising sun, moon and stars, with many painted dots or small items, slowly approaching the mountains and the earth's surface.

Experts in deciphering ancient written characters have been puzzled over the disclosure of the secret spirals from the cave Bayan-Kara-Ula for two decades. Finally, the professor of Beijing University Zum Umniu deciphered several inscriptions.

The grooved letters narrated that approximately 12 thousand years ago some flying objects crashed in these mountains. Chinese archaeologists found a mention of the peoples who lived in the mountainous caves of Bayan-Kara-Ula.

A corpse of another "alien" was found by Turkish cavers. A mummy of the ice age was resting in a sarcophagus made of crystalline material. The height of the humanoid male creature did not exceed 1 meter 20 centimeters, his skin was light green, and he had large transparent wings on his sides.

According to the researchers, in spite of the unusual appearance the creature looked more like a person rather than an animal. His nose, lips, ears, hands, feet, nails, were very similar to human. Only his eyes were very different, three times bigger than those of a human, and colorless, like reptile's eyes.

Not that long ago in one of the ancient Egyptian tombs a mummy of a man 2.5 meters tall was found. It had no nose or ears, and its mouth was very wide and had no tongue.

According to archaeologist Gaston de Villars, the age of the Mummy is approximately 4 thousand years. It was buried as an Egyptian nobleman - carefully mummified and surrounded by servants, food and art objects designed for the afterlife. However, as it was discovered, not all objects around the finding belong to the Egyptian or even Earth's culture. For example, among the finds was a round polished metal disk covered with strange characters, a costume made of metal with the remnants of something resembling plastic shoes, and many stone tablets filled with images of stars, planets and strange machines. The Shrine where a strange mummy was found also looks unusual. The burial was made of the material unknown in antiquity. The stone was literally carved from the rock so that the walls were smooth, like polished marble. It looked as if it was cut by a laser. Incidentally, the stone's surface was fused. The tomb was decorated with a substance resembling lead.

However, the "alien" theory is not the only one. According to some researchers, the "giants" and "dwarfs" could be a mere side branch of humanity that once lived on Earth, but for some reason became extinct."

One of the comments from the site is as follows:

"I'm very open to the idea of ancient astronauts. However, the source is Pravda and one of THEIR sources (for the account of an "alien mummy" found in a Turkish Cave) is non other than the 12/3/91 edition of THE WEEKLY WORLD NEWS (Google it, the link is too long to post). "

This story also came out in 2009 and was identified as a hoax:

http://www.badarchaeology.net/extraterrestrial/rwanda.php

"An “alien cemetery” discovered in Rwanda!

Discovery
In November 2009, various news sources began reporting the discovery of an “alien graveyard” discovered by a Swiss anthropologist working near Kigali, Rwanda. The earliest source for the story appears to be The Weekly World News for 3 November 2009. Written by Erik Van Datiken, the article claims that a Dr Hugo Childs discovered more than two hundred remarkably well preserved bodies in a clearing in the Rwandan jungle. Tissue and soil samples suggested that they had been in the ground for at least 500 years. They were taller and more slender than humans, standing about 7 feet (2.13 m) tall and about as thick as small saplings, although their heads were larger than the average human’s. Bizarrely, they lacked mouth, nose and eyes. Dr Childs assumed that “they communicated with one another telepathically and moved around like bats with some kind of biological radar.”

The bodies were supposedly stacked in groups of five (although the report does not say whether this was vertically, one on top of the other, or side by side). The only photograph reproduced with the report does not show any bodies, just a collection of rocks in a small trench. Dr Childs believed that “the two hundred aliens were part of a single landing party that encountered a deadly virus… Some of them must have survived because there is no evidence of a spaceship to be found”.

Assessment
It’s difficult to know where to begin… Firstly, there are no other references to be found to a Dr Hugo Childs: they all go back to this story. If we want to be charitable, we might speculate that it is early in his career and that he has not yet published any research. On the other hand, he is presumably attached to some kind of research institution (a museum or a university, perhaps), where one might expect to find reference to him as a member of staff or as an associate. But there is nothing. All we can know about Hugo Childs comes from this one press statement.

Next, the source is The Weekly World News, which is hardly a prestigious journal of record. A recent story challenges parents to prove Santa isn’t real by not buying their children presents for Christmas! While one may applaud a sentiment that attempts to subvert the commercialisation of a religious festival, the newspaper reports it as a serious scientific experiment. As with the Rwanda graveyard story, an “expert” is on hand to provide quotes, but we know nothing about who he is or in what subject he is supposed to be an expert. Upsetting children, perhaps.

Then there’s the reporter, Erik Van Datiken. He is The Weekly World News’s reporter on all things alien, including such unmissable stories as Aliens Destroyed Atlantis, which has a rather cute graphic of aliens and cattle, or Titanic Sunk by Underwater UFO, a revelation that means at least two Hollywood blockbusters will have to be remade. My favourite story concerns the hospitalisation of chanteuse Amy Winehouse for stress induced by crop circles in her hair! He has been working for the paper since at least August 2008, when the first story under his name was published. And what an illustrious name it (almost) is! Doesn’t it remind you of someone? Yes! It’s a close linguistic relative of Erich von Däniken, the world’s foremost expert on alien intervention in human history.

Needless to say, this story is a poorly constructed hoax. Yet it is a depressing commentary on contemporary attitudes that it is spreading throughout the blogosphere and UFOlogical corners of the web as a serious news story that, in the words of “Dr Hugo Childs” “will change the world”. I won’t be holding my breath waiting for The Weekly World News’s promised updates on the story."
