Everyone on Earth has Alien Parts - says NASA


gizmodo.com

Scientists have discovered evidence that supports the theory that part of our DNA actually comes from deep space.
People have been discovering components of DNA in meteorites since the 1960's, but researchers were unsure whether they were really created in space or if instead they came from contamination by terrestrial life. For the first time, we have three lines of evidence that together give us confidence these DNA building blocks actually were created in space.

This is pretty relevant as it's coming directly from NASA. I never really believed that we were all being slowly familiarised with the idea of alien life, in a bid to soften the blow on the elusive day of "UFO Disclosure", but I may be wrong. This seems a very strange thing for NASA to come out with IMO. I know they're just talking organisms, but they're ones that potentially brought us here in chemical form.

Seems like we are getting closer to disclosure on both ET's and our true origins. The question is, how long till it gets here? Or will ET's land and make the announcement themselves?


not surprising least to me, I already had some idea that we were a hybrid breed. SnF
good find

Personally I don't think we'll see official alien disclosure in this lifetime, but I feel things may get more obvious as time goes by.

This is really fascinating stuff. It's certainly going to shake up the "chemical soup" theory they teach in science class.

This seems to be confirmation that life was seeded on Earth by objects from space. This is ground breaking stuff.



According to the research, the discovery "gives support to the theory that a "kit" of ready-made parts created in space and delivered to Earth by meteorite and comet impacts assisted the origin of life." The obvious implication of this discovery is that, if life blocks are spread through the universe through comets and asteroids that impact on planets, the possibilities of life that uses the same blocks on other planets is a very real one.


It seems like space is absolutely chock full of comets/meteorites/asteroids that contain the building blocks of life. This has some really huge implications.

It means that life on other planets is a lot more likely than we currently estimate. It also means that aliens might have a similar DNA structure to Earth life.

Basically it seems like they think these objects floating out in cold dead space have the capacity to act as a "chemical factory" and produce the nucleobases which are responsible for life on Earth.


"In fact, there seems to be a 'goldilocks' class of meteorite, the so-called CM2 meteorites, where conditions are just right to make more of these molecules," adds Callahan.

I know, pretty ground breaking stuff. I can see the lines between Star Wars and real life blurring excitedly lol.

cool find! s/f!

I was just thinking as I read it....suppose the DNA that came from meteorites and asteroids, rather than being brought here by ET beings with high-tech time-warping wowee-zowee "ships", actually was CATAPULTED into space by some ET civilization a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away?

....they took some of these soup ingredients, embedded them into a chunk of whatever (meteorite-type stuff), and then....
"Okay, now, everyone together....pull it, keep pulling it, guys, keep pulling it -- quit your whining! Let's seed some other planet somewhere.....just to see what happens--!! C'mon, now, pull -- that's it....
wait for it.......wait for it.......and.....GO!"

They launched a bit of rock out of orbit, and it drifted until it hit Earth, and Voila!!!

Panspermia. Cool!

I wonder what my strange cousins up there look like. Maybe they're rich

Kinda goes with my idea of asteroids and comets basically acting as the spermatozoa of the universe.. Along with stars going supernova. and planets being the eggs, nice and fertile

Thank you, I was trying to remember the name of the theory. The Wikipedia page suggests that these chemicals are generated via collisions with planets that contain life. It could mean that life on Earth was the result of life on another planet contaminating Earth. However these NASA scientists seem to think the chemicals are actually generated inside the meteorites. There could even be another explanation.

Panspermia (Greek: πανσπερμία from πᾶς/πᾶν (pas/pan) "all" and σπέρμα (sperma) "seed") is the hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe, distributed by meteoroids, asteroids and planetoids.[1][2]

Panspermia proposes that life that can survive the effects of space, such as extremophile bacteria, become trapped in debris that is ejected into space after collisions between planets that harbor life and Small Solar System Bodies (SSSB). Bacteria may travel dormant for an extended amount of time before colliding randomly with other planets or intermingling with protoplanetary disks. If met with ideal conditions on a new planets' surfaces, the bacteria become active and the process of evolution begins. Panspermia is not meant to address how life began, just the method that may cause its sustenance.[3]

Get the hell out of here with that opinion. No. j/k, but i do not give you credit for the alien creation theory

Seems completely plausible to me
. Makes sense to me, too..

Genesis 6

6:1 When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. ... when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown


The Bible suggests we may have mixed genes. Were God and the Angels Earth-bound? Or did they get around a bit?

It seems like they may have to update that wiki page.


There is as yet no evidence to support or contradict panspermia, although the majority view holds that panspermia – especially in its interstellar form – is unlikely given the challenges of survival and transport in space.
---
The mechanisms proposed for interstellar panspermia are hypothetical and currently unproven.
---
Until a large portion of the galaxy is surveyed for signs of life or contact is made with hypothetical extraterrestrial civilizations, the panspermia hypothesis in its fullest meaning will remain difficult to test.

Sometimes I feel the Bible is simply a parody trying to carry vital information that the first authors knew would be hidden.

Everybody... bring up windows notepad or whatever word processing you got and starting writing to yourself in the future or to some other person who might read it 50 years from now. I think that they will be interested to know what it was like before humans discovered that life was elsewhere. Tell them! Pretend you're having a conversation, like this:

Hi! Whatever person is reading this!

What was it like? Well, there's a lot of unknown. We just don't know right now. You can understand that when there's so much unknown it sets off a chain reaction in our mind to produce a wave of probability. Since we cannot see it, we imagine it. It produces fantasy, even science. So answering "What was it like?" is difficult because different people are liable to produce different waves of probability with much factoring into the how and why.

One of the things I think of is a planet, usually a dark one with hints of blue. Not quite a moon. Somewhat barren. I'm not sure whether the atmosphere is breathable or not. But it's like my home. I think i've dreamed of things like this. Desolate, ancient things that circulate through the cosmos and produce in me a sense of awe. Sometimes in dreams i'll see a space station, but one that's no longer inhabited. And then streams of understanding fill my drunk mind. Junk math seems to make sense. I think WoW rather than saying it. None of it's real, of course. It's just a dream. That's all any of this is right now. It's not real yet. It's magical.

I love science fiction to a fault. It makes me giggle to think someone in the future might be reading this. If only it were tangible. I can't say much more than hello and then share my spiel.

Again, hello. Nice day today, sir, or maa'm?

Whoever is reading this, I hope you're living a life you're pleased with. Life, at least in my time, is not really long enough to waste. You have to live with your past. I wish you all the best.

Why is it that DNA breaks down on earth so easily -- I watched something that laughed at the idea you can extract dinosaur DNA from a mosquito in amber -- yet when it comes to DNA coming from space, through the atmosphere, and surviving a collision into earth... NO PROBLEM?

Ok, so we would agree that this new research appears to throw doubt on the primordial soup theory of how life evolved on this planet.

But does that not mean that a considerable sum of our understanding of our own existance, is now in question? What we have learned , and the theories of life, of medicine, and all biological sciences, have thier root in the simple premise of a begining that we had simply imagined. The reality of the situation is utterly different than the one we had invented for ourselves in our hubris

Worse still, the real answers as to precisely where we came from cannot be answered, because we cannot be sure which lump of space junk we arrived on. And even if we knew from which point on the galactic compass we hail from, we could not get to our true point of origin, because our technology does not match the distances that would be involved.

So, one could say that there are a number of questions that this new research poses. Among them are these...

1) How many things that we thought we knew the long and short of, are we actualy fooling ourselves about?

2) How do we intergrate this new research into our understanding of life, biology and so on?

3) We really are back to "Where do we come from?"arent we?

4) How long until our focus switches from wether or not we are extra terrestrial, to which particular location in space we came from, which meteoric impact was it that let us loose on this planet?

5) How much life on Earth owes its evolution to DNA from another place in space? All of it? A little of it? Wheres the line between terran and alien?

Fred Hoyle spoke of this years ago, even though he had some other unconventional ideas too.

n his later years, Hoyle became a staunch critic of theories of chemical evolution used to explain the naturalistic origin of life. With Chandra Wickramasinghe, Hoyle promoted the theory that life evolved in space, spreading through the universe via panspermia, and that evolution on earth is driven by a steady influx of viruses arriving via comets. In 1982, Hoyle presented Evolution from Space for the Royal Institution's Omni Lecture. After considering what he thought of as a very remote probability of evolution he concluded: “ If one proceeds directly and straightforwardly in this matter, without being deflected by a fear of incurring the wrath of scientific opinion, one arrives at the conclusion that biomaterials with their amazing measure or order must be the outcome of intelligent design. No other possibility I have been able to think of...

that is assuming the earths atmosphere has always been what it is now which it hasnt.

since they are talking millions of years ago possible a billion the atmosphere could have been alot thinner.

then when they say "dna" your talking millions of years of evolution to get to this point what it started out as could have been more resilent than most people will think.

not all life is created equal not here nor the rest of the universes.
