So, I was just relaxing here, and the movie Evan Almighty comes on, and it just comes to me.

What if this is a true story? But, that instead of just animals, it was loaded with humans too - of each race, in gendered pairs. Perhaps this ark was the way life came to earth? This is how we were 'seeded'. Someone dropped it off one day, once our planet was ready for life & we began to mate, & increase in numbers. This also fits with the Adam & Eve story - one man & one woman, originally.

Just something to think about. I consider myself an agnostic/atheist, but this does make literal sense.

In my opinion the arc was actually a spaceship

I totally agree with you.

Just think about the movie "Knowing" for example........ What if that is done all over space?

I think it's true in the sense that "Noah" knew a flood was coming, warned the others in his civilized area, they didn't listen and he went to high ground. Could a single family gather up 2 of every animal? No way.

It reminds me of today, there's people saying to avoid specific areas, and no one is listening.

Just play halo

it will tell you everything you need to know




what i mean by this.... THEY KNEW A FLOOD WAS COMING (Alien invasion) so they built a ARC (spaceship) to fear the waters! (of space) and make it to a new planet




seriously halo's story line belongs on here more then anyone could think if someone would just pay attention to it

Maybe I'm dense, but how does this "literally" make sense? If this had happened, how could we explain away the fossil record?

I would lean more towards the ancient astronaut theory's version. Some believe the "ark" was actually a spacecraft or aerial DNA storage bank. Easier to believe than an elderly man doing the physically and scientifically impossible.

A flood did happen, and the story is somewhat mirrored in many other cultures. Some think it happened in 2345 BC because something strange happened on that date - just Google it - but it may have happened much earlier.

As for Noah and the Ark, I'm not 100% sure how it may have went. What's written may be greatly exaggerated, or it might be what actually happened. Regardless, I don't have a problem believing a man named Noah was divinely warned to do what he did (at least some of what he did), but others may have survived with him.

The other theory going around is that the Ark was a giant ship that stored DNA of many creatures.

Our past is so mysterious...

Maybe things were dropped off at different times, we were "seeded" maybe this is what happened - not evolution.

Perhaps that is why we are continually visited by UFOs?

most cultures have a story of a great flood, and fossil records certainly indicate sea levels have risen quite a bit in the past.

Hi cassp83,

Perhaps it's true, they've supposedly discovered the legendary Ark atop Mount Ararat, Turkey.



Noah's ark is real, the bible is the truth. Read the true story of finding Noah's Ark and the artifacts found there. It's an exciting discovery adventure in Turkey. There is a museum built near the ark in Turkey. Even the anchor stones are still there to see. Did lava really preserve this ancient bible artifact? Discover for yourself. Dig into Ron Wyatt's discoveries. "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen." (Genesis 8:4-5) Did you see it? Read it again. God shows something new! It doesn't say mountain. It says "tops of the mountains" and "mountains of Ararat". Where are the mountains of Ararat? Certainly this includes the mountain range of Ararat.

We would have to ignore a lot of evidence to claim that the fossil record was caused by "aliens" seeding different species at different times. Don't you think there would be at least some trace evidence of the seeding?

First off, if i were you, i'd only tell this little theory of yours to very close friends and family, because, sorry, this really does sound like the ramblings of a maniac, (and i don't mean that in a good way like saying te world is round) if you told that to your boss, and he WASN'T a shaven chimp in a suit, then chances are he'll pick up the phone and call the men in white coats.

However, there is a theory, that francis crick (the man who discovered DNA) had, which is somewhat similar to yours, he said, that he thought it was possible that some DNA hitched a ride on a asteroid, and then that asteroid hit the earth, thus bringing life to earth. Which i think is far more more likely. It's called Panspermia, just in case you want to look it up XD

Although going back to the Noah and the ark thing, yeah i think that the story is true. (no im not a fundamentalist christian) I think it's true because if you read the creation myths of other cultures, you will find that a great number of them talk about a great flood that killed a load of people. Some of which even mention how two people built a boat and survived. In norse mythology for example, it says how two giants (i forget their names) built a boat and survived a great flood. Why would cultures all around the world talk about this if it didn't happen?

Interesting thought.
The hard part is knowing whether or not someone is a whack job, or telling the truth. There's so many stories about people who try to warn everyone but no one listens and everyone parishes, but then there's things like "THE SKY IS FALLING" when in reality it's someone paranoid, or nuts.

From my understanding there is a Flood story in the Sumerian texts (I know, I know, where is the link), so from my understanding, the Nature of this Flood was set forth because of the evil and abominations between the Angels and the Daughters of Man, the Nephilim/Giants of "lore". If this were the case then Man, and his many progeny would have existed as well, at that time; Noah was warned because there was a purity still intact within his genes, the corruption of the Angels and Nephilim were not present with Noah, and so he was chosen to survive for what ever reasons, he and his family were chosen.

Think about it, two of every kind, not hardly; but really think, when man came on the scene (modern man) all domestication came too. Domestic goats, domestic cattle, domestic rabbits, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks; all domestic and "removed" from nature. So the "Ark" contained the "creations" not the wild animals, not the entire Animal Kingdom. We too were the "domesticated" of our species and all else were wiped out (supposedly).

I would venture to say that when the domesticated man roamed around it was not without a "keeper", and that any offspring that was not meant to be got loose; those corrupted by the blood of angels (space-fairing I am sure) would have lived in estuaries or waterfronts, the tamest of the wild places; the exact places that are low-lying gardens which could easily be flooded out over hundreds of miles by rising oceans (theories abound). So wild flora and fauna continued to survive in the real wild places, unaffected by the Flood; what was meant to be destroyed, all of Mankind, was somehow bypassed by a small group who managed to save the domesticated stock. Someone saved the work and cleaned the slate and suddenly modern man was able to spread themselves across the entire planet and with them our fine feathered and furry friends, who are no more "wild" than we are.

I believe in the Flood Story, and I certainly believe Noah navigated the Ark to safety! We are all living proof, domesticated animals disconnected from Mother Nature!

No, it makes no sense. We'd have evidence of the seeding because genetics would carry all species currently on the planet to a genetic bottleneck.

...also, the predators would quickly dispatch the prey animals...2 lions and 2 gazelles = 2 lions and 0 gazelles after the lions get hungry.

I'm sure a flood happened. Floods happen every single year. It just wasn't a global flood, because that would be silly on every level.

There would be a hell of a lot of genetic evidence of this. Fortunately, all the genetic evidence points towards common descent and evolution.

The story of Adam and Eve, the Great Flood, and Noah's Ark exist in the form of pictographs (the first form of written language) on Sumerian clay tablets some thousands of years before Genesis (in the later Hebrew). To deny that, it would have to be denied the tablets didn't exist in the first place, the translation is incorrect, and / or the direct parallel between the two is just a coincidence. Let's make the reasonable assumption that this is not the case; perhaps explaining why such information is not spoon-fed through the mainstream, and why we still have pinheads like Bill O'Reilly spouting the second edition of the Old Testament's Genesis.

Now it's the original translation of the Sumerian clay tablets are open to question. That is, can they be taken literally for their accounts of Noah's Ark? Well, the Sumerian tablets have a slightly less glamorous take on what happened on their Seven Tablets of Creation. According to the tablets, beings from heaven to Earth came (Nephilim) to mine gold. They produced Homo sapiens from the native hominid / hominoid species to create a slave. They called them the "A.DAM.U". After originally helping them mine gold in South Africa (origins of the human fossil record) they moved them off to "ED.IN" - the 'land between the rivers' (Mesopotamia).

The 'gods' that created the "A.DAM.U" were apparently getting fed up with Homo sapiens according the Sumerian tablets. They were aware of an imminent flood and decided not to inform the newly created human population to try and kill them off. Enki, the brother of Enlil, who wanted to keep the flood secret, gave Noah the blueprint for Noah's Ark. Maybe this explains why the ark contains properties of the golden ratio thousands of years before Pythagoras allegedly unravelled it? This is taken from the relic up in the mountains of Mount Ararat thought to be Noah's Ark.

I personally believe in the plausibility of genetic manipulation of the human race, and I think you're on the right track with the questions you are asking in this thread. I think many myths have an origin of truth; and this can be found through the Sumerian tablets which clearly contain the story of Genesis on their Seven Tablets of Creation. It's a question of whether or not these tablets are 'mythical' or not. This is where the mainstream (including Wikipedia) shoot down Zecharia Sitchin, as he believed these were not mythical events, colouring the fact he discovered Genesis!

I think the flood did happen (how else do we explain pyramidal structures on the ocean floor?) and the ark was an effort to help save some of mankind by the more benevolent 'god' Enki. If the "A.DAM.U" were created by the 'gods', then they certainly didn't evolve or develop here on Earth corroborating your hypothesis of seeding. I just think the seeding occurred before Noah's Ark in keeping with what the Sumerian pictographs had to say.

"Man was created in God's image."

Man was created in god's image?

What a wealth of information everyone has been able to provide. This is definitely something to chew on. Our world is so mysterious.
