There is another way of looking at this, the amount of heavy machinery that would have to be brought in and the power that would be required to run it does not compare to making small adjustments to the DNA of resident apes to make them do the work for you.
These biological entities are perfect, they feed themselves and reproduce. Zero maintenance, zero energy, zero pollution. Perfect in every way. Sure, maybe it takes alot longer to get the job done. But I'm guessing if you live for centuries or even millenia time is not a problem

Me thinks it would be easier to bring seeds, eggs, embryos and a 'tree of life', whatever that looks like.
Less space required in interstellar arks cargo hold.
Panspermia is probably how complex life propagates from one system or world to the next.
But if we are doing the space travel deal Wormholes might be just the ticket as long as energy or exotic matter is not an issue.
Why does the fossil record seem to show that humans evolved on Earth and seem to be related to all Earth life -- life that started 4 billion years ago.
Maybe they hitch a ride deep inside an asteroid?

If ANUNNAKI and CREATOR are responsible for all this half-cocked mess, they would need to come back and sort it all out, if not, they should piss off to kindergarten Universe, and start all over again.
As unfortunate as the mess is, I believe it's but a small part of a perfect plan. Whenever we humans experience bouts of great happiness and joy, there are other similar beings elsewhere that have to balance the Infinite Unknown with bouts of extreme sadness and sorrow. I guess all experiences have to happen. It does suck to be on the poop end of a stick though....Peace.
Seem to remember something about an asteroid found in Antarctica that supposedly contained bacterial life from Mars.
I think it turned out to be of the terrestrial variety through, just frozen for rather a long time, which at least kind of proves it can survive such conditions.
