Where/what is the origin of the human race?
Were we created here on Earth? Evolved here on Earth? or is it possible we originated from another planet?
Cave paintings in Africa indicate space travel, and the squat ape like images of early man may be a result of the difference in gravity between the origin planet and Earth's gravity.
Our family tree has been traced back hundreds of thousands of years, in fact millions, through various generations of ancient hominoids up to modern man.
I know that lots of wishers want to track us to alien landings but there is no evidence beyond science fiction that we came from anywhere other than planet earth.
Consider that had we come from elsewhere we would have come with all of the technology that enabled them to reach the earth from countless light years away.
Does it seem likely that we wouldn't have had things like the wheel? Metals? The list goes on and on. even if we were a primitive race naturally evolved and had just been aided by aliens we would have seen and copied these basic things.
But we didn't, we can trace the evolution of technology back to sticks & stones.
If you look for something hard enough chances are you will find it. These people search ancient drawings and such looking for images that might somehow relate to space travel and so they find them, or fabricate them.
Sorry but we came from right here and evolved just like all the other animals and plants and insects. We did it without any help from alien visitors.
Hi Borsia, in some ways I agree. The evolution of man can be seen through many centuries. But a crashed space craft with a handful of survivors over 15,000 years ago. Priority - 1 survival. Technology? A rifle without bullets is just a club.
But a wheel is still a wheel and metal has always been better than stone, etc, etc, survival right.
Some technology would fall by the wayside, though bullets are easy to make, but basics would only evolve.
A wheel is only as good as its function, if there is no requirement for that function it is nothing more than a round object. Metal? Finding, extracting, smelting, and forming? I think food and shelter would be more important.
Then explain why once we did invent the wheel it has been with us?
Food has to be transported, best on wheels, smelting metal isn't hard once you know how. Again as soon as we invented it we kept improving it.
Wish if you like there is nothing to it.
It all began one dark night when my distant relatives Adam and Eve............
God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, he rested from all the work that he had done.
Genesis 1:26 - Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
Hi TA, just suppose God created man on another planet. The arrogance of man destroys that world. God provides passage of a few to a new world, but destroys the evil technology for man to start afresh. Maybe Mars is the next step. Just a thought!
Hi lumen2light, supposing is the right of anyone. but, that right also permits one to believe that there was no prior planet. God was the great creator of the earth from nothing. God made mankind in his image so that moral man shall rule the world.
Life started here on earth when God made Adam and Eve. This is my answer and I'm sticking to it.
This is a fun question to address lightly, with some imagination, and as you said 'to get the brain working.'
As I see it, the 'real' or 'whole' answer will be more complex.
We could start by asking more questions.
What says humans all have the same origin?
Even if we have a common biological origin, is it possible that each person has an animating soul - from various corners of the universe?
Is it possible that 'individual units of consciousness' which reside in individual physical bodies originated from dimensions beyond anything our sensory experience and well-laden interpretations can tell us?
Among the New age crowd, people sometimes talk about being 'old souls' or 'young souls' and 'being from' the Pleiades or from Sirius.
I have remained neutral on this subject, also on the subject of life on other planets. My non-committal response is, 'the universe is full of life.'
But I have some fun by saying, 'I used to be from Sirius. Now I am from Playful.'
lumen2light, your question sparked me to look up Pleiades for correct spelling, and I came across some interesting writing. It is the Historicist blog. Haven't read in-depth and don't know the angle of the writer, but will quote:
'Consider this - The Pleiades, seven stars clustered together in the northern sky.
'Problem: the ancients called them the seven sisters. But only six can be seen with the naked eye. The seventh is a dark neutron star.
'Question: How did the ancients know? For centuries this star was called the lost Pleiade because no one could figure out why the ancients had thought that there were seven, when clearly there are only six..'
Browsing the first paragraphs, the writing seems intelligent and offers another perspective.
Years ago I was fascinated by the writings of T. Lobsang Rampa who claimed to be a Tibetan trained in metaphysics and the occult. Some of his books describe Gardeners of the Earth and humanoids brought from other planets. I corresponded with Rampa in the 70s. Later he was found to be of questionable origin himself, that is, he was a plumber from England.
But that was unimportant, as his writings stirred my imagination and opened my mind to look at things from outside the box, just to consider them.
Is it possible that before the earth solidified into the 3rd dimension, it was populated by beings who were also not fully solidified? That among them were the Lemurians and other subtle races?
One thing I know -- there is more to us than meets the eye.
Your research has been fruitful. You must now know that God provided the historians with the truth. For it is through God, the Father, that the Son, Jesus, was sent, through acceptance of the Spirit, man (made of God) is brilliant. Let us all Shine.
I wrote an answer to another HP question:
'Can any religionist out there answer the Epicurean Paradox? This goes as follows:-'
That addresses your Comment more fully.
Just saw the Historicist blog is refuted.
Wow, this is an unexpected spin on the subject, but I agree, our true original origin will forever elude us. The thought of God creating man seems too simple for how complex we are; however, with current genetic engineering... anything is possible.
When the physical world is behind you, you know. For as it has been written, so it shall be. Every human is on a one-way trip from their beginning. How they traverse it is their choice. Those choosing the path outlined by Jesus is everlasting.
Ah, yes, in the words of Aerosmith, Life's a journey not a destination!!!
I will answer your question only (ignoring your explanatory notes) just for fun:
"God fired a shot towards the sky and all human beings started running. That's how human 'race' started, I believe!
And we are still running. Which shows God has a sense of humour; he did not tell us where the finish line is!
And it's nice to be coming to the finish line after all these millennia. I hope this is my last Homo sapiens vessel.
There are many stories and ideas. I find your cave painting idea interesting, but not likely.
The Bible has Adam and Eve in the Garden, but that was not a physical place! Despite all of the "physical" descriptions, Eden was a spiritual place -- and Adam and Eve died that day a spiritual death -- not a physical one.
As for Homo sapiens, scientists think they have it figured out (sort of), but they don't.
God created Homo sapiens (humanity), also known as "adam." See Genesis 5:2 -- where Adam is described as "them" and both male and female.
But the true timeline of Genesis apparently pegs the Flood at 27,970 BC and Adam at 10,434,130 BC. This skips right past anthropologists' Homo sapiens grandparent, great-grandparent and great-great grandparent species. This places earliest man in the middle of the Miocene Epoch, when giants roamed the Earth that would've made modern elephants look like miniature puppies.
This means that, though evolution applies to all other species, humans may well be a special case -- created whole cloth -- or genetically engineered by an agency of God. The purpose? To give God's lost children continuity of consciousness so needed in the rescue mission to redeem those lost children. And those lost children are us, because God created us in His image and likeness, and He is not Homo sapiens.
I don't think it is possible to really know yet. There is no sure way of figuring that out, only theories. The primordial ooze seems to be the one most accept so far.
It would be cool if aliens made us though.

Are we, as the human race, giving God more than he can handle?With all the violence, wars, moral declines and constant breaking of the commandments, when will he say, "That's it! Lights out!" Are we pushing the envelope? I'm sure he has his limits. It's scary when you think about it.
