Doctor Michael P. Masters, researcher and professor of anthropology at Montana Tech University, in Montana, USA, claims that decades of UFO sightings and encounters have been misinterpreted and would actually be our distant descendants who go back in time to visit us.
The doctor presented the theory in his new book entitled “Identified Flying Objects: A Multidisciplinary Scientific Approach to the UFO Phenomenon”, which examines the evolutionary change term in human biology, culture and technology.
A key piece of evidence that led the professor to come up with this theory is that when most people report close encounters with aliens, they always seem to describe them in the same way.
Most sightings describe the alleged aliens as upright posture and having five fingers on each hand and foot. So-called ‘Earth Beings’ are bilateral, symmetrical and have two eyes, a mouth, a nose.
Many also claim that they can communicate with us in our own languages.
“The phenomenon can be explained as our own distant descendants going back in time to study us in their evolutionary past”, said Michael.
Abductions and medical examinations, in his opinion, prove that time travelers are anthropologists, just like he is.
The anthropologist, researcher and expert in UFO sightings said these encounters can be explained scientifically, even if skeptics consider this science fringe, an established field of study that departs significantly from conventional theories.
Doctor Masters says: “I remain vigilant in my own skepticism. I have no unwavering devotion to this theory, nor do I intend to proclaim the truth.”
“Going back in time to study ancient humans would be the ‘Holy Grail of paleontology’”, concludes Masters.
