Alpha Centauri is a special star - not only because it is the closest stellar system to the sun but also because it is one of the relatively few places in the Milky Way Galaxy that may offer terrestrial life conditions. If humanity looks for intelligent life elsewhere, then Alpha Centauri is an excellent candidate.
The fourth condition concerns the stars' ages. The Sun is about 4.6 billion years old, so on Earth life had enough time to develop. A star must be old enough to give life a chance to evolve. Remarkably, Alpha Centauri A and B are even older than the Sun, they have an age of 5 to 6 billion years, therefore they pass this test with glamour, too.

What does this have to do with the various races on Earth? Are you saying that Asians didn't come from Asia but from Alpha Centauri B, Caucasians from A, Africans from Proxima?
That sounds pretty outrageous.
African peoples point to the stars as their point of origin (for example, the Dogon people); Asians refer to themselves as the Celestials (for example, the ancient Chinese); and the ancient Scandinavians worshiped the Gods of Asgaard who dwelt in Heaven and fathered mankind on the Earth.
