Let me explain why, and it will seem so simple that we evolved right here on our planet from the get go. This will also explain why our planet would
most likely not be very hospitable to an alien race too.
Have any of you ever wonder why we use oxygen, and not, let’s say methane, or why iron is vital to us but lead is poison, and so on with the 100s of
other chemical, mineral, gasses that make us human, or at least operate correctly? The answer is because that is what earth has available for us to
use, and we evolved into this very earth centric life form that would have an extremely hard time living on other planets that were even slightly
different than ours.
Most heavy metals sank to the earth’s center in the early stages of earth’s beginnings which made them rather rare, where iron is abundant.
Oxygen is one of the most deadly and caustic gasses in the universe but to us it is life. In early earth days there was no oxygen on earth until the
first plant life started to make it. We are basically and truly from the unique makeup of the earth.
We know life is fragile and even small changes can have huge negative reactions, so think of an alien life coming here and just walking about
breathing out air drinking our waters…eating our foods… I would suggest they would need a life support system to match their own home world, and
our world could and most likely would be very hostile to them…even deadly, as their planet would be to us.
We are also related to every plant and animal on this planet; we share DNA with grass and trees and closely match our DNA in the high percentile to
all other animals. This means as we go back down the tree of life all life at some point branched off from the same early life form.
If you say humans lived 300 million years ago from some foot prints, who is to say they are human foot prints? We know now there were many varieties
of “humans” that all have died out but us.
Food for thought
