Our "Alien" Ancestry...
I'm actually taking a well-deserved day off from work today. It's been
quite a while since I actually had a full day off. Took a wonderful
walk through massive open space just after sunrise this morning.
There's this 10 mile exercise trail that sits on the western edge of
Lawrence - perfect for clearing the mind! Mowed the lawn. Watched some
live testimony about the Patriot Act on C-SPAN. And now I'm penning my
week-ending LJ Blog entry. I'm choosing to end this week with a bit of
a reveal. It's me revealing something that I haven't really delved into
in any of my previously released material. I’ve hinted at it. But
nothing like I’m doing today. Here you go: It is my belief that life on
Earth was seeded and then manipulated by advanced scientists from
another part of the Universe.
Yes, Alien Scientists.
Now you're thinking, "OK, the 111 and 11:11 stuff was strange enough,
but now THIS too?!" Well, I just said what had to be said. This IS a
reveal. So, by its very nature, it may take some of you by surprise.
Please remember my background: chemist, biologist, physicist,
mathematician, and IT Professional. This isn't some kooky loser from
off the street telling you this. It's ME. Admittedly, the concept is
usually greeted with great suspicion. The Raelians are a prime example
of a movement that has this at the core of its belief system - and look
what's happened to them! Scoffed at. Written off. Buried even deeper
into the realms of obscurity. So it is not without risk that I make the
reveal. But it really is a central part of my belief system and one
that I now feel called to share. I made the same decision about 111 and
11:11 many moons ago. Somehow, it was easier to start sharing THAT
strange stuff than it is to begin sharing THIS strange stuff. But share
Look, this stuff isn't something I just
made up. It has its roots in a very ancient school of thought. That
school of thought actually has a name. It's called PANSPERMIA. It was
originally discussed in the 3rd century by one of the first Great Greek
Philosophers, Anaxagora (there's that AN again!). In the 1800s, French
chemist Louis Pasteur proposed that spontaneous generation of life
could not have occurred on Earth. British physicist Lord Kelvin and
others jumped on Pasteur's bandwagon and suggested that life might have
come from space. It took on a more formal, modern-day presence through
the work of Hermann von Helmholzt in 1879. Panspermia states that the
seeds of life are prevalent throughout the Universe. It furthermore
states that life on Earth began by such seeds landing on Earth and
propagating. Now the big question is how they got here. Combine my
strong belief the WE ARE NOT ALONE with the Panspermia notion and it's
easy to see why I think the way I do. It’s why I recognize the Alien
So what do the Raelians believe and why don't I just adhere to their
order? Good question. I am not necessarily in some kind of anti-Raelian
camp, but they really do turn me off. Completely. All the way from
their leader (failed race car driver Claude Vorilhon - aka "RAEL" ) to
their recent claims about cloning a human being: these people are just
not for me. It is my gut feeling that much of their movement will soon
be discredited somehow. For example, the whole thing could collapse if
"RAEL" confesses that he made it up out of thin air. Or if this becomes
known through some kind of covert operation (read: a SPY inside their
order). At any rate, on 12/13/1973, Vorilhon said he was walking in the
Clermont-Ferrand volcanic mountain range in France (France?!
Puh-lease!) when a UFO touched down. Humanoid creatures with pale
greenish skin and almond-shaped eyes took him aboard, saying they
wanted him to be their messenger to humankind. The aliens explained
they cloned the first people 25,000 years ago. The little green people
(BTW - the fact that they were "little" and "green" is pretty darn
hilarious) said that Vorilhon was himself a clone and that they
impregnated his mother in 1946 after the use of the first atomic bombs
awakened them to mankind's advanced scientific knowledge. Vorilhon, who
frequently dons flowing white garments, said his mission was to spread
the word that there is no God, and that science and our alien
forefathers would set people free -- physically and sexually -- and
help them live forever. Two years after the aliens' first visit, they
reappeared and took Vorilhon to another planet where he said he met
Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha. All became immortal through cloning, he
Listen, it's my opinion that this guy is off his rocker. If he had
simply stated this as his own, very personal belief system, I would
have had less trouble accepting it. Vorilhon just doesn't seem smart
enough to me. He seems like some kind of lower-order charlatan. Selling
snake oil. Kind of like how Joseph Smith dreamed up the Mormon faith
and then sold it to millions of people. Only "RAEL" will never get as
many followers. I will continue to track the RAELIANS and monitor their
publications, but I would never sign up. For one thing, I'm too much of
a GDI to ever jump on that kind of bandwagon. For another, I've heard
that Vorilhon rarely bathes. EWWWWW! Disgusting! Ha! Just kidding, I
made that last part up as a joke! Please, look into these folks if you
feel called to do so. Don't let me stop you.
But getting back to PANSPERMIA…
Again, the theory is this: life on Earth originated when certain
material (bacterial spores, perhaps) arrived here from space. It is my
belief that this material was carried here by an Alien Progenitor race.
There is a growing body of evidence that supports the first claim.
There's very little direct evidence that an Alien Progenitor race was
responsible. But that second part will appeal to a great many people -
for it requires a leap of faith. Again, not too big of a leap for those
of us who are convinced that WE ARE NOT ALONE. But the body of evidence
supporting the first claim only continues to grow. Some recent events
supporting this notion:
- 8/7/1996: NASA announced fossilized evideence of ancient life in
meteorite ALH 84001 from Mars.
- 7/29/1997: a NASA scientist announced eviidence of fossilized
microscopic life forms in a meteorite not from any planet.
- 1/4/1999: NASA officially recognized the possibility that life on
Earth comes from space.
- 4/26/2000: the team operating the mass sppectrometer on NASA's
Stardust mission announced the detection of very large organic
molecules in space. Non-biological sources for organic molecules so
large are not known.
- 6/23/2002: Geneticists reported evidence that the evolutionary step
from chimps to humans was assisted by viruses.
It's that last one that gets me. And it strengthens my beliefs. I
believe there was a moment where the beings that initially seeded life
here intervened a second time. And helped to accelerate and control the
"evolutionary steps" needed to bridge the gap between chimps and human
beings. These notions can neither be proved nor disproved. But the
current research strongly suggests that life on Earth has
extraterrestrial origins. The leap to the Alien Progenitor concept is
where my head goes next. This thinking comes very naturally to me.
Won't you join me in this way of thinking? Oh? You say you're already
there? How wonderful!
