I don't know what got me on this train of thought exactly, but I think ultimately it was the recent revelation that there may be 8 billion Earth-like
planets in our galaxy. The Earth may well have been terraformed.
We live on a young planet, in the ultimate scale of things. Yet here on Earth life is around 4 billion years old. That is also, to our knowledge,
about how long it took advanced civilization to form.
Imagine the multitudes of similar star systems, or even older star systems...if we here on Earth have already realized that we need to find another
world to live on eventually, and are even forming plans to do so, imagine the number of civilizations out there who have realized the same thing...
As the number of habitable worlds increase, the likelihood that life is SEEDED throughout the cosmos also increases.
If one starts from the hypothesis of Earth being a terraformed planet, what would be some evidence we should expect to find?
If Earth was a terraforming project, it fills in gaps for our religious histories. It also explains why we seem to have an outside presence (call it
aliens or whatever) that seems more interested in observing our growth than actually interacting with us.
Anyhow, just a thought I thought some may enjoy discussing.
