Because they don't fit within the typical evolutionary path that almost all living creatures do.
Their DNA is just strange and it appears they are 'alien', but they most definitely did evolve here on earth. Why? Because they share similar DNA and RNA sequencing with other creatures just like them.
It still brings the question tho, why did they evolve that way, they seem to be drastically different.
And what if they did come from space and some how evolved with earth creatures. They seem to adapt to their environment within seconds.

Most species that ever existed are now extinct.

Who's to say that changing the RNA was not a common trait among them?

I wonder what an octopus would look like with a tin foil hat?

I agree that octopuses are a mystery. I just think we should have proof of aliens before we start basing theories on them. Theories based on theories.

They can change their dna also...

It is claimed that the critter is the only earthling that can do so.

So, skyfairy from man made books made them?

Aliens sound more realistic really.


Isn't the whole "sky fairy" thing old?

God and Aliens are both on the same "realistic" level. Neither have been discovered.

They cant change DNA they can recode their RNA. Other animals can do it it's just very rare.In other animals, ranging from fruit flies to humans, such re-coding events only occur a fraction of 1 per cent of the time.

That is what I call a cop out theory:

We are having trouble understanding the evolution of some species. Let's assume it came from outer space. Problem solved!

Indeed. It seems that octopus diverged from squids about 270 million years ago. Well after the Cambrian explosion and hardly a "sudden" appearance.


Using a relaxed molecular clock, we estimate that the octopus and squid lineages diverged ∼270 Mya, emphasizing the deep evolutionary history of coleoid cephalopods8,30

Possible that their evolution was spurred by an extraterrestrial virus? Sure, why not (would space virii find a friendly host in an earthly organism)? Any evidence of that happening? Not really.

Octopus eggs from the sky? Nah. Something would have eaten them.

The recurring space alien characters featured in early early episodes of the Simpsons looked somewhat octopus-like, right?

Did Cthulhu come from space?

Well, i think from another dimension..

You know, like hollow earth is another dimension and so on.. Not an actual hollow planet.. Just a gate..

So maybe these creatures are from earth, but from a parallel dimension of earth.. Or alternative reality..

Especially deep ocean.
Those mofo's that are on docs like Blue Planet, or Life.
Some of those things are terrifying!

But the scientists say octopi came from space.

Of course, Cthulu just has a face that looks like an octopus.
