The “pre-primate” theory.
I read somewhere the other day that the Earth, our nice pretty little blue planet, is approximately 4.5 billion years old yet humans have only been
about for 200,000 years and as we appear now for only 50,000 years. Now yes I would imagine that the precise figures vary from source to source, the
point is however that we have been about for a relatively insignificant amount of time when put in the contest of the history of our planet rather
that just our species. I done some digging on wiki (not the best source, I know) but apparently the evolutionary history of primates goes back 65
slightly more significant but still we still cannot claim to have been here since the dawn of time.
This got me thinking, could it be possible that we, the “homo sapiens” are not in fact the first “intelligent being” to grace this little blue
planet. Could it not be the case that even within the last billion years of the Earth’s history there has been at least one other advanced race such
as ourselves native to the Earth. By that I mean another carbon based life form that has evolved out of the primordial soup into an intelligent being
capable of developing technology and civilised societies, which does not necessarily have to appear same as our own.
By no means would these being necessary have to be evolved form primates like ourselves, indeed the possibilities for exact genetic composite of this
“pre-primate” species could be endless. They may have evolved faster than us and perhaps even have been more technologically advanced. It is also
possible that they were wiped out in some kind of apocalyptic event that means we cannot find any trace of them, or perhaps they became so advanced
that they just simply left the earth altogether. It could also be that their ancestors still exist watching us in secret. I think many of you will
agree that this hypothesis feeds into a number of our current conspiracies regarding UFO’s and supreme beings. I personally would not go as far as
to say that they are now the UFO’s that visit us or the reptilians who control us. In any case I do not believe in the existence of reptilians and
think that the UFO’s visitations are greatly exaggerated therefore if this “pre-primate” species did exist I believe they would be extinct by
now. However all the same the possibility is intriguing surly for those who believe in such conspiracies.
We Humans will die out, I believe, long before the Earth will die. Therefore it is surly logical that after us another species will eventually evolve
to develop an intelligence similar to our own and therefore is it not also logical that before us there was another intelligent life from who came
before us. If we managed to evolve the way we have then why would it not be possible for another specie to have done so in the past or do so in the
