Yesterday I blogged on the strange story of Dr. Sam Chang - the scientist who seems not to exist - who allegedly reported that junk DNA was "ET." Well, as I alluded to yesterday, the article swiftly made the rounds on the internet, becoming the basis for yet more wild ufological speculations, even making a brief appearance on the website of the late Zechariah Sitchin. Yet, as critics quickly poked holes in the story, it seemed to grow.

The story, to me, has all the hallmarks of a "dye the waters" sort of operation, a psychological operation designed to plant a "meme" in society - in this case, the "meme" of tying junk DNA to extraterrestrials - and then monitoring where that meme travels as it makes its way through the information-maze of the internet. Additionally, one of the hallmarks of such operations is to monitor the comments and information that is kicked loose because of it.

As the story grew, it was then revealed that Dr Francis Crick - yes, that's the Francis Crick of Watson & Crick who discovered the double-helix structure of DNA, thus providing the foundation for unraveling the genome of every species in existence, including the human - published in his 1981 book Life Itself that DNA might itself might be the result of extraterrestrial genetic engineering.

That raised the bar considerably; this was no non-existent scientist babbling unscientifically about junk DNA and extraterrestrials, this was the Nobel-prize winning decoder of the helix himself. For someone of his stature to weigh in on the matter - and to do so before there even was a Human Genome Project - does give one pause. If "they" were indeed looking for something of this nature, how might "they" go about doing it?

Well, for one thing, they would look at the ancient myths that talk about it, the Mayan and the Mesopotamia, for example. Those stories are fairly clear that the "divine" component was provided by the male donor and the human by a human other words, they would look at the y-chromosome of males for one thing, and at old ones at that. But this process would be long and arduous, and highly speculative at that.

But this methodology implies something else about the Sam Chang hoax, and that is that other than a few posts by the ever-hysterical exopolitics crowd, there was no mention in the original story of any such things, either of the ancient myths nor of focused concentration on confirming them. We were left with a story with little scientific foundation, hovering in mid-air, making its rounds, being discussed and eventually denied, while elsewhere, geneticists were doing.... what exactly?

If you're like me, you sense a "smell" to this whole affair, a "paranormal bouquet" as Mulder once said in an early episode of the X-Files.  Crick's comment is unsettling for precisely that reason, and he surely would have known, or at least heard of, those ancient stories.  Watch them carefully.

    There is a possibity that the name of the scientist is made up but the information in the story is true. A mixture of true and false information to sow confusion and distrust among reseachers into this issue to block getting to the bottom of this story having us chase our tails in frustration.

    I’ve been trying to keep up with all your interviews on thebyteshow and just recently started listening to the 1st segment of Genes Giants Monsters And Men. Great stuff, really!

    This ET DNA subject is very interesting to say the least as is all your work. I deeply thank you for your thorough research. Anyhow, I recenlty came across a youtube series of videos where they lay out a theory that Jesus was on a DNA rescue mission and that we (human race) are actually fallen angels. It is laced with plenty of biblical passages; however, what I think you may find interesting is what he has found hidden in the Akhenaten and Nefertiti hieroglyph.

    He basically lays out how within the hieroglyph there are embedded images of what I can only call “reptilian” interference and DNA manipulation. He was also recently tipped off by one of his subscribers there is a DNA strand being transcribed/splitting, going into the base of both Akhenaten and Nefertiti’s neck. I’m doing a terrible job describing this and can only say, you have to watch the whole series to fully appreciate what he has found.

    The series of videos are called Final Warning (in 7 parts), here’s the link to the 1st part:

    The DNA strand video is not part of the above series and can be found here: (titled SDV 0123)

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Again, appreciate your work and all you do to try and waken the masses. You’ve definitely got your work cut out for you!

    All the best…

    This article arouses my curiosity. It is one of the reasons I am reading you Mister Farrell. It teases my speculative imagination. I cant say I know where you are going with all this but I will try to follow the train of thought and try and improve my awareness. If its a runaway train then I’ll just jump off like I used to in my old hobo(ing) adventure days.

    “Dye-in-the-water” – I equate this to a redirection by some propagandist, social-engineering researcher somewhere behind the veil. Yes, it certainly doesn’t pass the smell test but if one can see through all the mystification which you call hysteria then maybe something pertinent will fall through all the “Mazes, Dazes and Labyrinths’ of disinformation we are constantly exposed to just about everywhere or so it seems like everywhere which is an indication of the success of Mass Conditioning.

    Farrell, I like a scientific foundation as much as the next person to start with but be careful. Nobels Prizes might still have merit but not always. Look at the one they awarded to “Obama?” No more comment is necessary. Paul Feyerabend said he listens to “cranks, crackpots and nuts” because you never know when realizations can hit you? If you don’t believe this last sentence then just throw out the Myths of the Tricker out the window and I don’t believe you would wish to be that reckless.

    I wholeheartedly agree with your statements that “Mythology’ will provide valuable clues to the past. The ethical author Vine Delora talking about “Catastophes first turned me on to this way of thinking or perspective. I followed Jung but he is too much and leads only to (for me that is) some therapist collecting the rent for dwelling in some psychotic castle. The waves just wash all that magnificent, imaginative stuff away and what are we left with. The Idea of “Archetypes” which isn’t such a crazy idea in the first place.

    “Monitoring where it travels’ = Excellent! This “THEY” are watching us but at least some of us are watching them. It proves they don’t know-it-all —like you often encourage people in your writings—especially in Babylon’s Banksters, to offset the terrible feelings of apathy and depression when one is waking up to the present day situation.

    I hope reading you is helping me to raise the bar. I don’t know? I do know some encouragement or moral support to an author is probably welcomed? I like to believe your not just the “run of the mill” authors cashing in. (It can be a lucrative business for the few) Just interesting in earning a living although that is very important. Somebody asked Noam Chomsky (very rich) how come he’s got a 2 million endowment for his daughter and the best response he could give to the critic or cynic is “What? Am I supposed to live in a log cabin?” If you ask me that is a pretty lame excuse which lead me to some shocking realizations concerning where my lefty-only mind has been for quite a few years.

    This “meme” business, I don’t know? It’s such a good idea that it reminds me of a Trojan Horse. Like that dumb cliche – Beware of Greeks being Gifts! I wish we didn’t have to (not having much faith in our fellow human-beings) but we do and must be in top form(at least aim for it) in order not to be taken in by any or every Pied Piper along the way.

    I just ordered your “Genes… book. I am hoping it will shed some light (bad metaphor) on this DNA trail/business! I suspect something is availible and I like not to be left out although I think it may be a dreadful eugenic-theory.

    I’m not as fascinated with this weapons business as you are but that is just my own thing.

    To me, an infinite source of power spells trouble. How evolved are we? Certainly not enough Ethically to be handling such instruments. At least that’s my own estimate or opinion. I don’t believe in Saviors or External Sources but it would help. Who knows?

    As you have blogged on this I just finished hearing thebyteshow -Cosmic War 10b from July 2008 and you were talking about this subject. It is interesting to hear what you said then and then read these two pieces.

  5. Jon on May 15, 2011 at 11:23 am

    Dawkins himself, in an interview that is part of Ben Stein’s DVD on intelligent design, states quite clearly that he is amenable to the idea of our being genetically engineered by aliens, as long as we realize that THEY “evolved” somewhere, sometime. (He has to keep his baby, Evolution, in the picture.)

    I got so much flak for simply mentioning that in my Amazon review, my rating dropped 5 points and I finally pulled the review – one of only two times I have ever done that (the other was on Bill Maher’s “Religious” – at the same time no less – where I pointed out his clear double standard in some areas). I managed to anger/offend both Creationists and Evolutionists at the same time, and blind adherents from both camps came out in force to attack me without regard for truth or ethics. Hence one reason why I feel so at home here – I have experienced a tiny bit of what JPF, that clever old Illuminatus, gets all the time.

      Sorry, should read, “Religulous”

    • Joseph P. Farrell on May 15, 2011 at 11:29 am

      I don’t get attacked that much except I do get attacks and so on from the religious crowd… it is disconcerting to me. The programming in that whole system is increasingly evident to me, the attacks on people disguised as “unwillingness to debate” or the outright fabrications as in the case of that “lady” who wrote George Ann Hughes about me being an Illuminatus, based simply on the kind of topics I pursue, and solely on an affiliation with a particular university.

      • MattB on May 16, 2011 at 9:55 pm

        I have to say that this journey that i have been on with your books and commentary Joseph has really challenged my own religious positions-and I am thankful. I really don’t understand why other religious people wouldn’t want to be challenged.

        I am one of those who has grown increasingly frustrated and disenfranchised by religion-not God-religion. For many years i felt that something was very wrong, the world, history, archaeology,science, it all seemed to be built on a house of cards that no one wanted to admit was there.

        I have to admit that G,G,M & M is a frightening book in so many ways-perhaps more than ‘Cosmic war’. It is another step down the rabbit hole and i find myself asking the question ‘Do i turn back now or keep going?’ ‘Red pill or Blue pill?”Where is my bloody parachute?’ and ‘Have I been wrong about so many things for so many years?’

  6. Jay on May 15, 2011 at 10:37 am

    As I side .. I can’t help but think about, though somewhat reluctantly, Lloyd Pye’s “Starchild Skull” and the ongoing DNA testing. It was looking like a hybrid, but now maybe not even half-human.

  7. Laura Lee on May 15, 2011 at 6:42 am

    A writer / lecturer named Greg Braden has weighed in heavily on this DNA-business, too, with a book, The God Code, I think. His slant has it that some rather biblical content has been decoded from the DNA, It is a tenet of New-Age belief these days that we are the genetically engineered offspring of “the Gods.” (Though our status as precious children capable of godhood ourselves is not supported even in Sitchin’s work.)Though New-Agers of the fundamentalist stripe are not cognitively better organized than any other religious fundie, their beliefs are similarly emotionally comforting to them.

    • interwake on May 15, 2011 at 8:53 am

      These are excellent blogs as always, I am very grateful for Josephs giant efforts..

      This is on the same New Age angle ( i was trying to post before Laura’s appeared), so just to add to what Laura pointed out…
      This theme/meme of junk DNA – via off world or angelic/cosmic insertion – … is also part of some info via a particular ‘channel’ entity called Kryon [can be found on-line]); who espoused this in installments over the last 10 or so years; with the emphasis not so much on ET’s but on a ‘quantum otherness’ or emptiness layered by inter-dimensional DNA [the so called ‘junk’] – intrinsic to our genetic makeup like an inheritance awaiting our access & activation through a bit of self evolving consciousness raising etc.
      Some might know this is also a central theme of the ‘Wingmakers’ site, which again over 10 years ago posited the idea of genetic imprisonment but with some ‘dispensation’ or a benevolent outcome from an extra DNA twist to mankind (here the genetic experiment was in annunaki style via a shadowy Meta-illumanti group called the Icanabula – and that name Incanubula, with the little difference in spelling, is also found in a separate source – the 80’s-90’s conspiracy classic “Ong’s Hat’),.
      I hope these tidbits were of some help or distraction (Oh no not the network of evil again!) towards truth…

      As an astrologer i know this is intimately linked to our consciousness and it works on historical scale via cycles etc, but thats for another time]
