Researcher and author Dr Ellis Silver has worked for many years to bring his highly controversial views to the public view. Silver believes that human beings are not native to the planet Earth and that they were brought here by a highly advanced extra-terrestrial species, and he believes he has the evidence to prove that his theory is true.
The foundation of Silver’s argument is that there are deeply unusual characteristics inherent to all human beings which cumulatively suggest that the species is not entirely at home on this planet. For instance, the rays of the sun can be incredibly harmful, if not lethal to human beings if they are exposed to it for prolonged periods of time. Humans are also dazzled, or even blinded by looking directly at the sun, which does not appear to be the case for other creatures on this planet.
Human beings also suffer a vast range of chronic health issues. One of the most common chronic health problems is bad backs which, again, is not evident in any other form of species on this planet. This suggests to Ellis that human beings evolved on a planet where the gravitational force was lower. Furthermore, humans also experience other health problems which stem from the body expecting a twenty-five-hour day – something which has been confirmed by sleep researchers.
Finally, Ellis points to the process of human conception, gestation and birth. The process in itself is unparalleled in its inefficiency in the context of the animal kingdom. It is also fraught with inherent dangers and poses a serious health risk to the mother. Again, this is not a characteristic that can be observed in any other species on this planet.
Further to this, the human genome presents with an extra 223 genes which are not apparent in any other Earth-native species. Humans have also been incapable of tracing the family tree of the species to completion and are still grappling with the so-called ‘missing link’.
Silver writes that all of this suggests to him that human beings evolved on a different planet. Speculating as to how the species couldn’t have ended up on Earth, he suggested that this planet may be a ‘prison planet’ as human beings are an unusually violent species. “We’re here until we learn to behave ourselves,” he wrote.
Humans have multiple copies of a gene known as SRGAP2, which is thought to be involved in brain development. Chimps and orangutans have only one copy.
In her new book, Hybrid Humans: Scientific Evidence of Our 800,000-Year-Old Alien Legacy, Australian researcher Daniella Fenton suggests that the fusion of Chromosome-2 into human DNA around 780,000 years ago, thus altering the genetic make-up of early humans to make them more intelligent, was an ‘upgrade’ to the human species by extra-terrestrials.
“Approximately 800,000 years ago human brain size went into a sudden rapid increase in size and complexity which has long been a mystery to archaeologists,” said Fenton. “The gene is highly active in controlling decision-making and enabling language abilities. [It] suddenly formed out of junk DNA.” The Chromosone-2 upgrade is only found in large-brained humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans, and no other primate species. “The three species went on to become advanced humans with art, culture and increasingly complex technologies,” noted Fenton.
There are essentially 2 main opposing theories offering an explanation concerning the appearance of human beings on Earth: science vs religion, or evolution vs creationism. Ancient alien astronaut theorists offer an alternative theory, much of this theory has a basis in ancient civilisations – many of whom believed we were created by “Gods” coming from the skies. It would seem that the oldest of human cultures held beliefs in other worldly gods. Ancient alien/astronaut theory proposes that a long time ago intelligent ancient aliens/astronauts from another planet visited the Earth. They were the ones who taught our primitive half-ape ancestors how to build civilizations and taught them religion.
The idea that humans (i.e. Homo Sapiens) came to being through evolution is being made popular by Charles Darwin after the publication of his book The Origin of Species in 1859, although he was not the first person who came up with this idea.
The first person who used the term ancient astronaut was Erich Von Daniken who wrote in his book called Chariots of the Gods, first published in 1968.
According to Von Daniken humans are not the only intelligent beings in the universe. His theory being a long time ago came a group of alien astronauts which landed on Earth, at that time a place filled with cave drawing hominids. According to Daniken, these ancient aliens are the reason why there are so many ruined cities from ancient civilizations everywhere around the globe. Civilizations such as: ancient Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Mayan, etc. Pyramids in particular, as yet modern science can’t fully explain. Some reports state emphatically that the cultures living there said the pyramids were there before they got there.
Furthermore, almost all of the perished ancient civilizations believed that one day their gods will come back to the Earth. These stories came to being because the ancient astronaut “gods” went back to their own planets after intermingling with our primitive ancestors in order to create a better hominid species (i.e. Homo Sapiens). This story (with varied details) is found in almost every myth and religion, including in the 5 major religions in the world today.
In 1976, an author by the name of Zecharia Sitchin wrote a book about ancient aliens. The book is called the 12th Planet. In this book, not only did he propose a similar theory to Erich Von Daniken he also proposed that these aliens came from a planet called Nibiru.
Sitchin claimed that the Sumerians believed there were 12 heavenly bodies in our solar system (i.e. Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Earth, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptunus, Pluto and Planet X or Nibiru). This planet Nibiru was the home of the technologically human-like alien race called the Anunnaki in the Sumerian myth or the Nephilim (the giants of Canaan) in the Bible (OT: Book of Numbers 13:33). These beings were our creators/ancestors.
