Humans didn't come from Earth

Now, if I put my well-founded scepticism to the side for a minute, it does neatly split the arguments about evolution versus creationism and will quite happily have members of both communities getting all frothy-mouthed.  The great light in the sky that was Old Testament god was really the spaceship abandoning the humans.

 

Maybe we're the alien equivalent of Australians, a bunch of criminals deported to a far-off planet.  Will they be back to smack us down now that we're pushing things outside of the solar system?  Or have they just forgotten about us like we tried to do with our deported criminals in the past?

 

Putting it all together, the 10 Commandments were really the prison rules and Jesus really wasn't the messiah, just a naughty boy.

He is interested in whether humans came to Earth separately, perhaps by arriving on meteors and comets,   - I went to Heathrow on a Comet once in the early 1970s. Does that count?

 

and who can forget Fred Hoyle? As an apparent member of the lunatic fringe, he talked about an alien consciousness that ran the earth, diseases from space, and panspermia (his intriguing proposal that interstellar space dust is composed largely of bacteria.) His career raises interesting questions about the role of orthodoxy in the sciences, especially cosmology, where answers are necessarily provisional.

here's another lunatic fringe

What if bacteria is actually the pinnacle if trans galatic evolution and complex life was just some kind of crazy fluke of a mistake. Our anthropocentric viewpoint holds that they are just tiny smushy pods of DNA when actually, in many ways they are the perfect organism (prolific, able to withstand a wide range of temeperature extemes etc). Just sayin :)

Does this mean that chimpanzees with whom we share 98% of our DNA are actually descended from us and not the other way around?

They're actually retro-grade humans who've watched too much daytime TV.

Does that mean that hippos elephants and pigs are not from earth as all of them cover themselves in dust or mud to prevent sunburn. The other thing I don't get is if the fact the female pelvis is just big enough for the babies head during child birth means we aren't from earth. If we were born on another planet would the babies head be smaller.

Haha that did cheer me up this morning! That said, I still think there will be life in the wider universe, but not sure little green men in their flying saucers exist...

I think we can not get to them and they can not get to us.

Ghosts and Afterlife in Alien worlds then maybe.
