A conspiracy theorist said extraterrestrials that look just like humans are on Earth and you may not even know you are speaking to one.
Marcus Allen is the publisher in the UK of alternative news magazine Nexus, which provides monthly updates for so-called ‘truthers’ on conspiracy theories and other alternative philosophies.
Mr Allen made the staggering claim to a packed audience of the 27th Glastonbury Symposium, an annual event dedicated to all things paranormal and new age.
He claimed that there was a difference between aliens and extra terrestrials, and that both of them were already on earth, but their existence has been covered up by world leaders.
He said: “Aliens do not look like us, but ETs (extraterrestrials) do look like us.
“There could be some here in now and you wouldn’t know.”
He then extended the theory to suggest that all humans could in fact be aliens who came to earth from another planet before our primitive ancestors.
Mr Allen said: “In a way we are the extraterrestrials.”
He suggested we may have originated from another planet in our distance past, or at least some of us may have.
He added: “We came here to look back to how we originated as a society as hunter gatherers we did not achieve a great deal, but then religion and society controls came along.”
His claim appears to be in keeping with the popular ancient aliens conspiracy theory that suggests our ancient ancestors were visited by advanced intelligent aliens from outer space who helped civilisations create great monuments such as the Pyramids of Giza and Stonehenge and were later worshipped as gods.
Mr Allen is best known as a moon landings conspiracy theorist who believes that NASA faked the Apollo missions by filming footage of astronauts on the moon inside studios before deceiving the world – a theory which NASA denies.
The space agency also says after all its exploration throughout the solar system, it has found no evidence of intelligent aliens, or even the most basic forms of life, existing anywhere.
