The discovery of Proxima b, an Earth-sized exoplanet orbiting in the habitable zone of the Sun's closest stellar neighbor, the dwarf star Proxima Centauri, has reignited interest in an old conspiracy theory that eight-foot-tall extraterrestrial beings from a planet orbiting Proxima Centauri have been visiting Earth since ancient times.
According to conspiracy theorists, the announcement by astronomers at the European Southern Observatory of the discovery in our stellar neighborhood of an exoplanet potentially capable of supporting life provides evidence backing old conspiracy theory claims that there is a planet orbiting Proxima Centauri that is home to a humanoid species called the Cenos aliens.
The red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, about 4.22 light-years away, is part of the star system Alpha Centauri, consisting of Alpha Centauri A, Alpha Centauri B and Proxima Centauri.
The belief held by some members of the UFO and alien conspiracy theory community that 8-8.5-foot-tall humanoid Cenos aliens from Proxima Centauri have been visiting Earth since ancient times, and that they may still be living among us, originated in the alleged confessions of an alien from the Alpha Centauri star system known simply as "Hands," CNET reports.
Hands revealed himself as an alien entity from the Alpha Centauri star system through a hypnotic subject.
Hands claimed to be a huge extraterrestrial being with dome-shaped body and eight hands -- hence the name "Hands." He also revealed the existence of another alien race, the Cenos aliens, from a planet orbiting Proxima Centuari. The Cenos aliens, according to Hands, were 8-8.5 feet tall humanoid beings with multiple hearts. They were five times stronger than normal humans, according to Hands.
Cenos aliens have no need for sleep, suffer no diseases and have a life span of about 120 years. They have elongated skulls, big hands, and skins with huge pores.
Cenos aliens have been visiting Earth since ancient times. They visited Earth during World War II. According to conspiracy theorists, they were last spotted on Earth in 2012 when they visited Taitung in Taiwan. Representatives of the Cenos species may still be living among us, according to conspiracy theorists.
Dr Barry Warmkessel, who holds a B.A. in physics from Pomona College and a Ph.D. from Arizona State University, claims to be an expert in alien technology and life forms, and also an authoritative source of information about Cenos aliens.
Warmkessel believes that "Hands" was a real alien being that revealed himself through the hypnotic subject whose identity remains unknown. He also believes that Cenos aliens visited Taiwan in 2012.
The alleged visit of Cenos aliens to Taiwan in 2012 attracted the attention of members of the online alien and UFO conspiracy theory community. Conspiracy theorist and UFO blogger Scott C. Waring, reported the rare Taiwan sighting in January 2013.Waring reported the alleged sighting of an 8-foot alien in Taitung, Taiwan. The photograph of the alleged alien was taken by a local police office near the Jiaming Lake (see YouTube videos). According to Waring, alien experts said the photographed entity was a humanoid being with a head structured like that of a praying mantis.Local news stations reported rumors of the existence of a massive underground alien base in the vicinity of the Jiaming Lake.
Warmkessel concluded after investigations that the alien visitor to Taiwan in 2012 was a Cenos alien.
According to Warmkesel, Cenos aliens also visited the ancient Akkadian civilization (c. 2300 B.C.). The old Sumerian deities were Cenos aliens deified by the ancient humans, according to Warmkessel.
The Cenos aliens also helped to build the ancient pyramids of Egypt and Mayan civilization.
