Ahh, the good ol' PSX days..
Last human DNA modification could have been 5000 to 10000 years ago, that could be possible. But unless I'm wrong, creationists usually believe
that the whole planet, poof, arrived magically and everything on it in 7 days and this was God's doing. If this existence is some type of matrix, sure
this theory is plausible.
There's a bit of separation between Creationists when it comes to how old the Earth is, and how old mankind is. Generally speaking, mankind was only
appointed 6 days (and a thousand years being as a day for God), so it's basically agreed that humans have not been here for more than 6,000 years. The
Earth, and the Universe, however, can be debated.
Some Creationists believe the Earth is 13,000~ years old - 6 days for Creation, 6,000 years; and rested on the 7th (1k years), then created mankind,
add another 6,000 years for 13,000.
Others believe the Earth could, indeed, be billions of years old, and that God used evolution to work his "magic".
And still some others believe when the Earth was "void", after it's initial creation, it stayed that way for several billion years, as the Bible never
says how long it was void.
If we have been modified by aliens, that means that they are not gods and they come either from evolution of a god. Of course, we could also be
part of God...or part of an atom...
It may seem a bit cliche, but the reason I do not believe Aliens modified or created us, is because it begs the question, "Who created the Aliens?"
and like I said, it may seem cliche, because you would think you could apply the same thing to God, and ask who created him - but you can't.
Many assume that Creationists believe that "Everything has a Cause," and that it would spawn an infinite chain of "gods" creating "gods" creating
"aliens" creating "us", etc. Fact is, that phrase is wrong.
The proper statement is; Every Effect has a Cause
To put it in perspective, since the entire Universe had a beginning, and is the "Effect", God must be the Cause. Could the Universe be the Cause? No,
because something cannot be the Effect of it's own Cause, nor something the Cause of it's Effect.

It didn't really offend me, but it kinda adds generalizations to your average Christian, but thank you. And yeaaa, sorry about that. It wasn't really
a direct response to the video, but it was the video that made me feel almost obligated to reply in one way or another.
