Not only would it be documented, there would be evidence in our evolutionary history and in our DNA. Look, evolution is genetic change overtime
governed by environmental factors, we have evidence of the process in fossils, DNA, mitochondrial DNA and the outcomes of this process today. So if
you think about it you'll realize that if humans truly did have a common ancestor with, I believe it is the orangutan at closest, and everything else
on down the line, then death would have been a trait that has been passed down since the very beginning. Ok, here's the crazy part, in genesis it
says that God gave Adam and eve (meaning of-Adam) eternal life. If you believe that aliens (extra-terrestrial) may exist you should therefore
acknowledge the very real possibility of a god creator. Back to topic, "god/aliens" very well could have genetically manipulated a close species
into homosapiens and given this species eternal life (evidence in bible, "the punishment for sin is death"). This tells me that when the first
humans were created they were governed and in exchange for obedience they were rewarded with eternal life. When humans began to disobey the privilege
was revoked.(personally I believe this is quite plausible and as humans began to realize if they obeyed they were slaves and who would want to live
forever as a slave. It would have been easy to convince early humans to obey early on as emotions ( hormone homeostasis and alteration.) run deep
within our species and death of a loved one sends your hormones a raging.)
So to sum it up it is quite probable (if god is an alien) that humans were gifted eternal life then the privilege was revoked due to disobedience.
With time I believe we may be able to restore the gift to ourselves but I agree that it would not be a very reasonable tradeoff due to ignorance,
overpopulation, and the unsustainability of a species living forever. Would we outlaw having children? Would we starve without food?
Oh, there's evidence for everything I wrote but its three am here and I'm tired. If you want you can search for some sources (it would be greatly
appreciated) as I am going to go pass out. Whatever links are not found I will attempt to locate them when I wake up, if I remember. Hope you enjoy
the read. I'm probably going to be branded as being insane.
