So explain why our mitochondria DNA is only 200,00o years old? You must be talking about the bottleneck theory? Doesn't sound logical to me. It just
sounds logical because believing in aliens that created us sounds like sci-fi.
Uhm, I would say evolution. Now, I understand that you will most certainly argue against evolution so I will answer that argument now. There is no
reason to accept the natural evolution of an extraterrestrial intelligent species from one world and not from our own. There is no hard evidence of
alien life visiting this planet in the past, nor creating the human species. There is no reason that an alien species would visit another habitable
world when their own is dying and decide to create a sentient species on this newly discovered world rather than just creating a new colony instead.
If I were me, I would send a colony ship, build a new civilization on this new world and then mine what resources I could to help save the old world,
which may be all for nothing anyways if it's time is really up and it's dying. It stands for better reason to establish new colonies to bolster the
species chances of continuation. Hopefully soon, within the next couple hundred years, we will do this with Mars. We need to terraform it regardless
of whatever bacterial life may live there so we can give our own species a fighting chance. I personally hope we can terraform Venus as well, giving
us three planets our species can survive on.
