Many scientists claim that life arrived on Earth on meteorites in the form of microorganisms, which then evolved. Others believe that life on Earth arose in the process of hitting water against rocks, resulting in the formation of chains of amino acids called peptides. And there are other, less popular theories.
However, in the book of Dr. Ellis Silver “Humans are not from Earth: a scientific evaluation of the evidence“, a hypothesis is put forward that people did not evolve along with other life forms on Earth, but arrived from somewhere tens or hundreds of thousands of years ago.
The researcher puts forward arguments based on human physiology.
Silver argues that some of the chronic diseases that afflict humanity (such as joint problems) may be a sign that we have evolved in a world with less gravity.
The scientist also points to other unique human traits, such as the heads of babies are so large that it is difficult for women to give birth.
“No other species on this planet has this problem,” says the scientist.
Silver also points to 223 “extra” genes in humans that no other species has, and the absence of a fossil “missing link” linking to a possible human ancestor.
“I think many of our health problems stem from the simple fact that our internal body clocks have evolved to sense a 25-hour work day, even though an Earth day is only 24 hours long,” the scientist writes.
Silver suggests that human precursors such as Homo Erectus were crossed with other species. It also suggests several possible origins, including the closest star system to the Sun, Alpha Centauri.
“Humanity is supposedly the most highly evolved species on the planet, yet it is surprisingly ill-adapted to the Earth’s environment: damage from sunlight, rejection of naturally occurring (raw) food, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and much more.”
“In addition, many people have the prevailing opinion that they do not belong to this place or feel that something is “wrong”. This suggests that (at least for me) humanity most likely evolved on another planet and may have been brought here as a highly developed species,” says Silver.
Most scientists agree that life itself could have come to Earth on meteorites or comets. This primitive form of life then evolved over millions of years to become what we are today.
However, Silver believes that humanity did not evolve from this particular kind of life, but evolved elsewhere and was brought to Earth about 60,000 to 200,000 years ago as a fully developed Homo sapiens.
