Were Humans Domesticated?

Updated on June 5, 2011

No New Jobs?


No new species of animal has been domesticated on Earth for 4000 years.

Why is this?

Do humans not have the ability to domesticate animals?

Is it coincidence that stories from around the World of aliens visits, also date back to around or before that time?

Did aliens, on a visit to Earth, domesticate the animals? If so, did they also domesticate us?

If they did, then did they instill, in us, our character?

The Sumerians claim that the “Anunnaki” visited us in search of Gold and gave us the abilities to mine it for them.

The Hopi Indians also claim that aliens visited us in search of Gold.

Did these aliens instill, in us, the concept of religion?

Did they think that they could leave us and on their return, we would worship them as Gods and present them with Gold in our adoration?

If this were the case, did they underestimate our abilities to think and reason? Expanding on the religious concepts and finding more and different beliefs.

This, of course, is speculation but why is it in 4000 years, humans have not seen the need or lacked the ability, to domesticate more species?

      Consider for a moment all of the domesticated species on Earth . . . dogs, cats, livestock, etc., they don't kill their own kind and yet us humanoid types do?

      So are we truly domesticated in that sense or do we kill each other because we are at the top of the food chain?

      Do you think the domestication process has lead to men being bred out of evolution as your other hub pointed out, interesting thoughts to ponder . . .

      Fascinating thoughts, Rafken. You have a delightful ability to keep us thinking outside the box. Thanks!

      Alien trainers? I don't doubt it. Religious experiences? I don't doubt that, either. I think there is much more to religion, though, than a close encounter of the fourth kind. The spiritual component of man still needs help awakening.

      One fellow researcher (R.C. Leonard, pointed out to me that in Ezekial the patriarch is given a ride on a flying craft and feels "the hand of God" holding him down as it moves. Sounds like the effects of acceleration, which would likely have been entirely new to a bedouin primitive.

      Many species are not hardwired for domestication as are horses and dogs. The pack leader is merely replaced by the human owner. Which brings up an interesting idea. Could species be artificially "evolved" into a domesticated version? Take tigers, for instance. Those that are too unruly are killed off. Over time, only the tamer varieties will be having offspring. Could that take thousands of years? Maybe. But could that be happening with "entertainment" beasts in circus performances?

      I have to believe in what you wrote on this hub because its very logical yet I also have a question on what other animal we could probably have domesticated .. Surely not the carnivores with their canines!!
