Maybe Earth is a Colony?

What Will It Take for Humans to Colonize the Milky Way?


The idea that humans will eventually travel to and inhabit other parts of our galaxy was well expressed by the early Russian rocket scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, who wrote, “Earth is humanity’s cradle, but you’re not meant to stay in your cradle forever.” Since then the idea has been a staple of science fiction, and thus become part of a consensus image of humanity’s future. Going to the stars is often regarded as humanity’s destiny, even a measure of its success as a species. But in the century since this vision was proposed, things we have learned about the universe and ourselves combine to suggest that moving out into the galaxy may not be humanity’s destiny after all.


You know what I think is hysterical, the Earth is very young compared to the rest of this galaxy and who is to say we were not colonized by another civilization that has been around much longer than us? To think we are the only planet with life on it is ridiculous. Just because we haven't figured out how to travel interstellar yet does not mean that a more advanced civilization has not done so.

Earth is an infant that has not figured out yet how to walk, we are still in the crawling stages and there must be older civilizations out there that have learned to fly long before we did, right? Are we so arrogant as a species to think we are the "Cats Meow" so to speak?

Earth; it's a nursery... and we are the infants who have come to think we are masters of the universe.

I tend to think the Terra Papers makes more sense then anything else I've read.

Apparently, so does George Lucas.

Life yes. But intelligence like what we have which is constantly growing personally and as a whole species might be rather rare.
Although, recent breakthroughs with the Higgs particle suggest that where there is life intelligence is only one mutation away.

Considering our placement in the galaxy, arent we pretty much behind everyone else in the Milky Way?

Much like an inbred hill billy village compared to the capital of country X.

Even if we arent a colony, our presence is so insignificant that the other races couldnt care less about us outer rim people. The Earth will be left to wallow in our own petty issues forever until we perish, hence why all the F head politicians and bankers are so focused on beriching themselves on our expense. They know this is as goos as it gets....

A good version of the Sumerian story says just that. Check out the "annunaki" and zecharia Sitchin, Christians hate him, maybe youll like it, I did

Shhh. We don't need a colonoscopy.

I've always thought we were dropped off.. humans that it. Maybe in a more prehistoric form like neanderthal.
But someone else dropped us off on this planet.. maybe as an experiment to see if we could figure it out - who knows.

But I think we are different to animals in too many ways to have evolved from them.
Religion - Adam and Eve is a good story, but if you look at it logically we didn't appear the way the book says we did.

Maybe we are a colony of sorts.

Yes, many people are so arrogant to think that we are the "Cats Meow" of intelligent life.

As far as your theory goes, it is very possible that Earth was colonized. People could have been very easily dropped off and restricted to having to survive on the natural resources.

Of course we don't know if this is true or false. As far as it's plausibility, it depends upon your willingness to accept the possibility of intelligent life existing beyond our planet.

Who knows, we could be a prison planet like Australia was a prison continent. The thing about it is that no-one can say definitively.

So we went from space travel to stone tools and lost all knowledge? How do you propose that happened?

Drugs. All those awesome plants.

And Ninkasi. She had a big part in it.

Humanity is an army.

Earth is a boot camp.

Collectively, we may have just answered the question of why "alien encounters" are really so rare.
We "may" have been placed in one of the outer arms of our galaxy in order to isolate us from contacting the really intelligent life forms and contaminating them.

Because of war like ways.

Just remember to read the manuals closely.
It may turn out to be a cookbook!

I just think there is so much we really do not know about our evolution and how we really came to be. Just saying some god created us in their image and voila doesn't fly with me.

Exactly. We are so far removed from what is considered to be the center of a trillion stars that exist just in this galaxy and there are billions of galaxies supposedly. Each one of those stars could have 10 planets and at least one probably has life on it, so there has to be other civilizations out there older than Earth, right?
