Well it all depends on whether or not these ET's originated from earth, or more likely, seeded earth a long , long time ago.
If that's the case, I would say there'd be a very good chance at creating an offspring between the two species (if these particular aliens actual
seeded the earth), and look nearly identical to humans, like some eyewitness accounts have described.
I don't really believe in this, but I wouldn't be suprise if there is an ET/Mars/Earth connection, and some sort of "seeding" life on this planet,
or us actually being ancestors of an ET civilization that used to live on Mars but had to colonize Earth millions of yeras ago, due to some
catacilysmic(sp?) event that took place on our original home planet. (Mars?)
On the topic of the Liger, I just saw a show recently on this guy, so it made me think of it. If anyone is not familiar with this unique chimpanzee,
or "Humanzee" Oliver, it's definitely a cool, but strange story. He was quite the character from what I could tell from the multiple shows I've
seen about him. If you've never seen Oliver, or heard /seen his story, your in for a real treat, that's if the you tube series is even hallfway
good. Even if it's halfway good, you'll be in for a treat to see this one of a kind chimp.
( second link is, part 1 of 6, of a documentary, or some tv show on Oliver, I've never seen this particular one, I'm sure it's interesting though,
I'll prolly give it a watch tommorow).
Even the Humanzee titled show I watched on the science channel, there were different conclusions on whether Oliver was just a Chimp with Human
features, that somehow just walked upright for his whole life, or if he was a Human/Chimpanzee hybrid.
If I remember right most, but not all of the experts said he was 100% chimpanzee.
And you have to remember that genetically and DNA wise we (humans) are 99.9% identical to chimpanzee's. But still many experts don't believe cross
breeding would be possible, and would only yeild humanzee babies with terrible birth defects ect.
But who knows, there is the whole moral issue of it as well. I mean 99.9% is damn near a perfect genetic match. I wouldn't be suprised if it was
tried , and done successfully many times, and Oliver was just an escapee from some lab that was doing this.
They said in the show the whole idea came about by one (but most likely more) of the major world powers back in the 80's to try and create a super
type of soldier by crossbreading Gorillas and Humans, or Orangutans(sp?) and humans (due to those primates incredible physical strength). They hope
they would create a soldier that had the best traits of both, the strength of a gorilla, but the intelligence of a Human.
Only later did they realize it was only Chimpanzees that we're a near perfect genetic match to humans, and that the other pri,ate species developed
into thier own seperate branches of evolution, and aren't a suitable match. 99.9%, it's amazing when you think about it. I guess Darwin was right
But back to the ET's. If they are from a different solar system than us, and have no lineage connection to us. The chances of them being compatible
with us fro makeing a hybrid child are next to none. They most likely wouldn't even be carbon based. So in that regard...I'd have to agree with
But if there is a past history history of us and this certain species of ET (which again there's probably a huge amount), and maybe a good half-dozen
in our neighborhood of the universe. There would have to be a past connection of common heritage for hybridization between an ET species and Humans
for this to work.
UNLESS the aliens are so far ahead in the areas of science and geneology, that they could "make" it work. Maybe that's what all the tests, and
probes abductees alwys talk about are for.
I can't think of any reason why they (the ET's) wouldn't want to preserve thier race, and the uniqueness of it, instead of watering it down with
hybridization, but again who knows thier motives. We can only hope that whatever they are doing is for everyones best interest. But life lessons seem
to have taught me that hope like that will only get you hurt.
Either way, interesting topic, starred and flagged.
Lets just hope that the smarter, most advanced of the ET's are working for the greater good, and have Earth, and it's inhabitants best interests in
mind. But I worry sometimes. It seems life, well all the life I have seen on earth is all about self preservation, and conquering newer, larger
territories. Lets hope this is not a universal trend.
