2.2 – GODS & ALIENS (11.4.10)

GENETIC EXPERIMENTS [3f]

The Galapagos Islands, off the coast of South America, are known for their unique biodiversity. In 1832, a naturalist named Charles Darwin came to these islands to observe and record several species of animals not seen before. The results of his studies formed the basis for his controversial book, The Origin of Species. In it, Darwin proposed his theory of evolution, which held that all life evolved over time, through a process of natural selection. But even Darwin’s theories could not explain the developmental gap between apes and man. There was, it was believed, a transitional species that had to exist, one which became referred to as, “the missing link.”

“Homo sapiens have been around for 300,000 years. And only in a few thousand years, our brain size essentially tripled. Now, that does not jive with ordinary evolution. You need time. A very long time. However, today, biologists cannot quite put a finger on how our brain volume tripled in a very short time period. That is still a mystery.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Could it be, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, that Ancient Aliens had a hand in jump-starting human evolution on our planet?

“Science has been unable to find the missing link, and maybe that’s simply because Earth is unable to offer that missing link. Maybe the missing link is not of this Earth. Maybe the missing link is somewhere outside, extraterrestrial.”

        – Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

In 1996, medical science took a giant step forward when geneticists successfully cloned a sheep. This revolutionary technology marked a significant advancement in our understanding of DNA. But could extraterrestrial visitors have also possessed knowledge of genetics?

“In the Sumerian records of mythology, they explain how they genetically engineered the first human being. And so, it’s very possible that extraterrestrials did genetically engineer us.”

“More and more creatures are being discovered, as science goes along, in little caves, or on little islands, whereby DNA evidence clearly shows that something else has been happening. We’re probably gonna get to hard scientific fact that something interbred with humans, on certain occasions, certain moments in time.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Could the giants and monsters described in the ancient myths be examples of genetic mutations? And, if so, what purpose might they have served?

“There are actually accounts in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India of how, in their original attempts to produce living things in the Universe, the gods, or the extraterrestrial beings, made mistakes and produced different types of monsters and giants and things like that.”

Michael Cremo (Author, Forbidden Archaeology)

“Why should the so-called ‘gods’ first make such mixed creatures? What’s the purpose of it? Did they observe a lion and they say to themselves, ‘why don’t we mix the strongness of the muscle of one animal with the heat expellant skin of the other animal, and use it at some other planet, which is different to Earth? So they start to make breedings. They start to make mixed creatures.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Scholars and archaeologists generally agree that sometime around 3000 BC, during the Megalithic Era, mankind took a quantum leap forward with regard to civilization and use of technology. According to myths and legends, human beings gave credit to their gods for giving them this knowledge. But if the gods were, in fact, alien visitors, might mankind’s quantum leap forward have had a more intergalactic origin?

“It is clear that something affected multiple continents on this planet around 3000 BC. The pyramids began to be built at that moment in time. Why? What was the imperative? Was it a global imperative? Yes. Was it an imperative which came from outside this world? Yes.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

If aliens intervened to speed the advancement of human beings, is it also possible that they have influenced mankind at other critical junctures in history? And, if so, could they have continued to monitor us, even today?

“It’s very possible that, if there was some type of genetic intervention by an extraterrestrial race, on humanity, they would be very interested to see their experiment progress.”

– Jason Martell

“I am often asked the question, ‘is it not ridiculous to believe that extraterrestrials should, in a way or other, look similar to us, or even think similar to us?’ – no. The question is wrong. They are not, but coincidence, similar to us, but we are similar to them, because we are the product.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

But if alien beings did interbreed with humans, why? Was it to save their own species? Or perhaps, hide the genetic traces of their presence here on Earth? Could there even be aliens living among us?
