Could Our Ancesters Have Come From Outer Space?

Updated on October 9, 2009

The Universe is a Big Place

How Many Stars?

Food for Thought

Anyone who has seen the movie Stargate has been exposed to the concept that man may have come from outer space. The idea that the pyramids were actually landing pads for spacecraft seems a bit like a Hollywood creation. However, the ancient Samarians have a story of the beginnings of man that makes Stargate seem conservative.

Mesopotamia is often regarded as the birthplace of civilization, however, Samaria which is the southern part of Mesopotamia is actually a cradle of civilization. In Sumerian "mythology", man was actually created by a superior race that came from the sky, so that Man could do the work of farming etc... This could be taken as just another religious myth if that were not for the fact that in Sumerian writings, planets which have only recently been photographed were described in great detail right down to the color. The next video covers this point.

The Ancient Sumerians Knew More Than We Know Today About Our Solar System

The Beginnings?

It is easy to go very "science fiction" about this, but there are a lot of questions that are not so easily answered, and there's no way to really know for sure. This is food for our imaginations. Now the Sumerian explanation of how man came to be, aligns with other early religious texts, including the Bible. Could this all be coincidence? Check out the next video.

Who Were the Annunaki?

Now according to Sumerian writing Man was created by the Annunaki, who had come from the sky in order to find resources to save their planet. According to this legend man was created by some sort of genetic engineering to help expedite locating these resources. Now of course it isn't phrased exactly like that in the "mythology" but it is the way that modern scientists have interpreted it. It is a very interesting story I recommend you watch the next three videos, because whether they're true or not, they definitely stimulate the imagination.

It Definately Gets You Thinking

No matter what your take is on the data, you have to admit that it gets you thinking. It definitely would make a great science-fiction movie, in the vein of Stargate and Stargate SG1, and there's no way to conclusively verify the theories that have been stated, but it is food for thought.

I hope you enjoyed this hub as much as I enjoyed making it, and if you decide to make a blockbuster movie, I want to be mentioned in the credits.

      Great hub! Although I do not submit to the idea that aliens had a part in the very DNA of humanity I do, however, keep myself very open to many ideas. Even today our understanding of simple sciences that we have long held dear and true as fact are being reworked, expanded or thrown out due to new evidences. The day will yet come when we shall have all these answers. However, along the way there will be many scores of theories to ponder and entertain. What's important is to not take any specific one as gospel truth as truth is ever evolving. Love the hub and the theories and thoughts contained.

      It's very egocentric for Humans to speculate on life. Earth is in outer space. We are outer space. We are in fact aliens by definition.

      "Earth-like planets are still too small to detect so we haven't found any," Lineweaver said. "However, the rapidity with which life arose on Earth suggests that more than 10 percent of terrestrial planets have life. We're not talking about trees and animals; we're talking about any kind of life. The smart money is on the idea that bacteria [are] all over the Universe. What it has evolved into is anybody's guess." -- Discovery News
