I personally don't find the theory so hard to accept, but what I believe is something that is completely on the other side of "alien" intervention
in humanity's history.
My thoughts, and nothing more (so don't flame me, because these are just my thoughts), go something like this:
Humanity has been around a lot longer than we perceive. If we take all of these stories and legends from ancient cultures and homogenize them into
one story line, I have a feeling that we would have a better starting point in which to further research our own history. I really do think that
humans are the extraterrestrials of ancient lore. I think we are cast offs from a planet that was under distress through our own
actions; akin to what we are doing to this planet now. Whatever happened in the distant past, humanity branched off among the stars. Some were able
to sustain their level of technology, while other branches (like us) de-evolved in a manner of speaking. Without the power to sustain our technology,
we were reduced to a cavemen like status (and history erased any sort of hint to the type of tech we may have had in the distant past). How long ago
do I think this happened? Tens of millions of years ago, not the hundreds of thousands of years, as evolution suggests. As humanity on this planet
began to form societies again (after tens of thousands of years of being nomads and interacting with the indigenous ape-like man of this planet), we
were able to slowly develop our tech...tech that had been lost for some time (along with the knowledge of such tech). We started with masonry, then
moved up the ladder to steam power, then electricity, and then the circuit board, and to where we are now. If you all notice, our technology in the
past 100 years has exploded. The longer the time line, the shorter the advancement times. It's almost like a time-wave zero type of calculation.
Imagine the type of tech we'll have 20 years from now.
My point is that perhaps these stories of "aliens from the stars" were actually scout teams of other humans searching the stars for places where the
rest of their "clan" branched out to. They left certain types of tech in hopes of rejoining their brothers and sisters one day. The stories of our
origins could have changed over the tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of years that humans have been here. Ever play the telephone game?
I'll use a movie reference to sort of push my own thought point. Think of the remake of "Planet of the Apes." The pilot is sent a few thousand
years in his future, and crash lands on a planet where humanity has de-evolved, and the apes have evolved to take over. The apes have their own
religion, based off of the events of the crash of the mothership, thousands of years in the past. Their own evolution was the result of humanity
tinkering with the apes' DNA. The story had changed so much that any semblance of the original incident was erased.
Who's to say that this didn't happen with us?
The feeling I get is that humanity doesn't quite fit in with the overall model of Earth's creatures, especially in our present time. We "evolved"
far too fast to have our development be left to random chance. This is where the ancient alien theory comes into play. Either at some point along
our evolutionary time-line, our DNA was manipulated in order to accelerate our progress, or we are the aliens. This would account for
the fact that we have never found a direct link between us and the apes (and perhaps the correlation in shared DNA among all Earth's creatures makes
this type of "life" a more widespread event than we can prove right now).
Where's the evidence, you ask? I have not a clue. Then again, if any of your are familiar with the show "Life After People" then you'll see that
Mother Nature has a way of erasing something and starting anew. Sure, the monolithic structures of our ancestors still remain, and are a testament to
human resolve and ingenuity (or maybe aliens helped...who knows), but what about before that? How far back does our history truly go? If our current
society could be erased in a few thousand years, without a trace, then what existed before the monolithic builders? Maybe those people found some
sort of ancient mathematical doctrine that enabled them to build these structures.
I see many things in patterns and cycles. The cycle of humanity, at least in my belief, is on a much longer time-line than we currently understand,
and perhaps our origins are not of Earth, but of somewhere else.
I think many of our answers could lie buried in the sands of Northern Africa. It's amazing what wonders Mother Nature can hide from us. The answers
could be right under our noses.
Anyway, thanks for reading my own thoughts on the matter. They may not make sense, and there is definitely no proof, but I have a gut feeling that I
may be on the right track.
