: Incredible new space and science portal--Cosmiverse

: www.cosmiverse.com

: I think you will all love it. Just wanted to share with you.

: Now...

: I for one believe that the ancient "gods" are actually aliens from another world who are using earth as a grand terra-forming experiment. Man was created in the image of God? I believe this is a metaphor for genetic engineering.

: You should all read "Everything you Know is Wrong" by Lloyd Pye. It addresses this topic in great detail, basing arguments on the written history of the ancient Sumerians. Very interesting, to say the least.

***I will check out the book you have suggeted, it does sound very interesting, Have you read the book "Charriots of the Gods"? it is simular to the thinking which you express. As far as purposeful experimentation of seeding life, I have a couple thoughts as well. 1. If life were purposefully seeded here, it may not have been experimental in a way that the seeders would keep track, for it is a huge universe, and if some form of intelligent life did sow lifes beginings here, it may have been only in the attempt to keep life flourishing in the universe, a drop and go kind of program. This could also be done without any life forms onboard the transport device, sort of like a ship which seeks out hospitable planets (which could be in many different varieties than our own), then calculate the kind of life formula most suitable for the current and expected future environment of the planet, then drop off a payload of life begining substances, record the event as far as the location and action taken, and move on to the next suitable trajectory, possibly never to return. Leaving the rest to natural devices. Mars may have been suitable at the time this occured as well, thus the planet may have be seeded as well, as a double effort toward success. Europa may have been worth seeding then as well.

2. It is entirly possible that the seeding of life is an entirely natural process in which the building blocks that nurture life could be transported to other planets through metiorites, comets, dust or any suitable celetial object that has been exposed to life in some way. Kind of like universal spores. This is in no way impossible, and in my opinion is most probable. Life can also begin entirely on its own as well.

Do you have any other ideas?
