Ecologist says human beings are not from Earth

Humans-not-from-EarthEcologist Dr. Ellis Silver has written a new book arguing that human physiology shows signs that it is not suited for this planet. Silver says humans might have been brought here by aliens as a fully developed species.

Silver bases his argument by comparing humans to other animals. He notes for instance that the human species seems to be particularly sensitive to the sun. For instance we are dazzled by the sun, whereas most animals are not. He told Yahoo News, “Lizards can sunbathe for as long as they like – and many of them do. We can just about get away with it for a week or two. But day after day in the sun? Forget it. You might as well just lie down on the freeway and wait for a bus to hit you.”

He also points out that humans have more chronic illnesses than other animals. One of our problems is bad backs, which he feels could indicate that we evolved on a planet with lower gravity. Other problems included our extra large heads which give mothers difficulty and pose a danger during child birth; we have extra genes, and the missing link. All problems he notes other species do not have.

“We are all chronically ill,” says Silver. “Indeed, if you can find a single person who is 100% fit and healthy and not suffering from some (perhaps hidden or unstated) condition or disorder (there’s an extensive list in the book) I would be extremely surprised – I have not been able to find anyone.”

“Mankind is supposedly the most highly developed species on the planet, yet is surprisingly unsuited and ill-equipped for Earth’s environment: harmed by sunlight, a strong dislike for naturally occurring (raw) foods, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and more. Plus there’s a prevailing feeling among many people that they don’t belong here or that something “just isn’t right”.

“This suggests (to me at least) that mankind may have evolved on a different planet, and we may have been brought here as a highly developed species. One reason for this, discussed in the book, is that the Earth might be a prison planet – since we seem to be a naturally violent species – and we’re here until we learn to behave ourselves.”

Silver concludes, “The Earth approximately meets our needs as a species, but perhaps not as strongly as whoever brought us here initially thought.”

“Recent scientific reports suggest that life itself might not be from Earth but might have arrived here on meteors or comets. This primitive form of life then evolved over billions of years into what we find on Earth today. My thesis proposes that mankind did not evolve from that particular strain of life, but evolved elsewhere and was transported to Earth (as fully evolved Homo sapiens) between 60,000 and 200,000 years ago.”

Silver’s theories have been met with a healthy amount of criticism, but he says he chose a book format instead of a scientific paper in order to spark debate. He says, “Little in the book can be proven – it can only be supposed or suspected. But there is more than enough indisputable evidence to make further study worthwhile.”

  1. I’m of the belief, we’re spiritual beings first and have been forced into the physical form we know as Homo sapien by a force way beyond our capacity to understand (GOD). I can see and mostly agree with the “Scientific Method” relative our visible environment but feel science cannot explain away the “Life Force” contained in the millions of organic vessels we see and encounter daily on Earth. There is far too much which denies strict and reproducable result, which is the hallmark of the method(s) the scientific community so stubbornly ascribes to. However, I see this as just the way it’s suppossed to be, as “Love Never Faileth” and faith is the one constant for those who believe and committ to life as a journey back to it’s source. I believe because it is natural for me to do so, not because I’m forced, shamed and/or alienated into it.

  2. I am from Indian and in hindu culture it is said that we are sons of seven saints who came in a ship so every hindu is born of a gotra (means from the sons of sons of this seven).like wise when looking in christian too they came from two persons to this earth…many of hindu epics of is of nearly two thousand year old they also tells about vehicles that can travel between planets.so it may be that after some sort of disaster after we reach to our upper limits of over capacities we were fighting each other and destroying one another and all the electronic devices and all the humans were destroyed and there remained only a few persons who we call the saints today who told that the earth is round and had no device to prove the same and rote stories to spread love known as Hindu culture
