A few years back Art Bell reported that scientists had finally found "proof" of extraterrestrial DNA in human DNA, in the so-called "junk DNA," a bit of non-coding DNA - or so we're told - in the human genome. The story quickly gained a life of its own and began being reported in all the alternative outlets, one of the most thorough recountings of the story appearing here:

Junk DNA Was Created by Alien Programmers

Then the story began to unravel. For one thing, the professor alleged to have been the guiding hand behind the discover, Dr. Sam Chang, turned out to be fictitious, at least, as far as the Human Genome Project was concerned:

Professor SamChang and Junk DNA

What lends an eerie twist to the whole story, however, is that Dr. Paul Davies, in 2004, published a short article in New Scientist suggesting an ET connection to junk DNA:

Off the Planet: Shifting the Problem into Outer Space

Alien Message May be in our DNA

OK... granted, the story of Chang is full of holes, but let's speculate a bit here. I've blogged recently on the curious fact that various royal houses of Europe seem to be of interest to geneticists, and more recently, posted a short blog about the findings that King Tut of Egypt seems to fit genetically into haplogroups common to Western Euyrope (Italy, the Iberian peninsula, and, of all places, western Britian and Ireland), so we have yet another royal who is for whatever reason of interest to geneticists.

So exactly what are they looking for? Well...thoughts certainly cross my mind, but one of them is connected with the Sumerian and Egyptian(Manetho) kings' lists, both of which make clear that "kingship was lowered from heaven", and both make clear that there are three layers of groups of kings on earth: "gods, demigods," and "just plain ole human." Given the other stories associated with these regions and their suggestive nature, perhaps they are, indeed, quietly looking for Dr. Davies "message in the DNA."

But if so, I can construe reasons both for why they would disclose it, and choose to keep any such findings to themselves. In any case, something disturbing hovers over this whole story... a genome scientist whom no one has heard of, a Russian cryptographer who allegedly decodes the code, and then the story is called into question. This is a "non-story" story that I suspect we've not heard the last of.

Oh yea, and one last parting thought...without ET DNA, what would they have to compare junk DNA to in order to reach the conclusion of the original story? Sort of sounds like the Bin Laden episode to me...

    i wonder too about this nimrod/rothschild dna connection? I think it was in that book , I think called “the theory of the leisure class” by Turston V or something where the fat cats had to have these mansions to show off. It perpetuated the “myth” or the lie that the Rich, Aristocracy, Elite or whatever you want to call them are different from us. ( They certainly may be but not in the way I’m thinking!) I think the enormous sum Bill Gates spent on his house is continuing a partially in part of this phony “Mystique!”

    Unthinking people might just be impressed enough (the mansion are impressive – My old home town was a half-hour from Newport, RI and believe me some of those sic, qoute them – summer cottages, are impressive indeed) Tobelieve that “Maybe, just maybe, the rich are indeed differrent from us. You know kinda superior or our betters. Pox on that!
    Besides, slum tenaments are the best bets because they bring in enormous amounts of income, barely any taxes or expenses on them. The big houses we live in (make believe quoting the miser Rockofellow’s way of thinking) cost us so dam much and brings in no income. Dam this pretend business but we must overwhelm the miserable pauper-peasants into thinking we are
    Divine or the next best thing to it!

    . If not they just might get some politically uncorrect ideas about us, ha, ha and take matters into their own hands. Heaven forbid!

    I just mention these thoughts as psychological countermeasure so that I or others on this web-site don’t occasionally get overwhelmed or swamped by the feeling that maybe they are so superior we haven’t got a chance? (maybe they are and if so we had it? Nothing wont with a little bit of shadow-awareness even though it’s a bit pre-morbid. If you don’t think blowing up a Planet isn’t a castastrophe or premorbid then I don’t know what to say to your brand of Ethics?)

    We just might have a little something dealing in the paranormal realm that is hiding in our own JUNK DNA. Well, we can play that game anyway. ( I adopt the term Paul Shepard uses – Human Powers we might have missed
    out on because of bad cultural underdevelopment.

    Maybe we are the ‘library’ of missing information that the elites need to get back to their original goal/technological ability etc etc.

    if cockroaches can be used as living libraries of information that breed and pass on their ‘library’ at a genetic level-why can’t humans?

    What are your thoughts on this idea Joseph?

    “Use Cockroach DNA To Encode Archives In A Biological Time Capsule
    by TAJ on NOVEMBER 10, 2008 · 0 COMMENTS
    in SCIENCE
    Jaron Lanier, with the collaboration of David Sulzer and Lisa Haney came up with this intriguing and highly feasible idea for a Manhattan time capsule … although you could do this anywhere.

    Some of the cockroach’s genes are extremely stable. They have not changed substantially for millions of years, and are therefore extremely likely to remain stable for the next one thousand years. Associated with these genes are DNA sequences known as introns which serve no known purpose. While it is possible that these sequences serve some unidentified function, their content is gibberish.

    Recombinant techniques will be used to overwrite this gibberish with the archival materials. While computer memory is made of bits, which exist in two states (zero or one), DNA is composed of four “base pairs”; so it has four states. Therefore a given sequence of DNA can store twice as much information as a similar length of computer memory.

    Within approximately fourteen years, the archival roaches will inexorably become so endemic as to become an ubiquitous and permanent feature of the island.

    In order to decode the archive, a future historian would make use of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to amplify and then sequence the fragments, turning the DNA sequence once again into the contents of a computer’s memory. In order to facilitate decoding, the archive will not make use of data compression or encryption technologies.

    This sounds like a great McGuffin for a sci-fi story, or perhaps the means of transmitting secret spy messages … or a 1,000 year time capsule if you want to be practical.”

      “This is an article that you should probably re-read several times. 97% of our DNA is said to be created by Alien programmers. There are two codes at work here. A master code for a Superman with a thousand year lifespan and a flawed code for a limited slave race that just digs gold ages fast and is not all that bright.”

      That’s a little Biblical……….

      rying to understand the origins and meaning of junk DNA Prof. Chang realized that he first needs a definition of “junk”. Is junk DNA really junk, (useless and meaningless) or it contains some information not claimed by the rest of DNA for whatever reason? He once mentioned the question to an acquaintance, Dr. Lipshutz, a young theoretical physicist turned Wall Street derivative securities specialist. “Easy,” replied Lipshutz. “We’ll run your sequence through the software I use to analyze market data, and it will show if your sequences are total garbage, “white noise”, or there is a message in there.” This new breed of analysts with strong background in math, physics and statistics are getting more and more popular with Wall Street firms. They sift through gigabytes of market statistics, trying to uncover useful correlation between the various market indexes, and individual stocks.”

        “Since there are letters, it should be tested in some old languages, perhaps Sumerian, Egyptian, Hebrew, and so on. Prof.”

        And a little GGM&M……..

    More disinformation to confuse researchers in their quest for the truth behind this story and to hide something more earth shaking about human DNA which may or not include alien DNA one is amaze to what lengths they will go to lay out leads to nowhere to hide their real secrets as is said in The X Files the truth is out there let us search for it good hunting.

    So we have a supposed Chinese genome scientist, a Russian cryptographer and a discredited story…hmmmm. Seems as if some want this out but others don’t perhaps. I agree, I don’t think we have heard the last of this one.

    What do you think about the idea of a collective human consciousness? If we all share in a completely dedicated human sphere of consciousness, would it not make sense that certain parts of that consciousness would be divided into certain aspects of a collective that would have dedicated functions? Like subsets in a math equation, certain functions that can only be expressed by a specific talent or ability, and that ones genetic makeup would be the agent of transduction into physical reality? There by the reason for the investigation into the human genome, one could look for specific markers and conclude what function a person, or group of persons, may have a higher order of, and by dint of that would look to unify the dialectic within that community
