There's an interesting book out apparently that while I have not read, bears mentioning since it seems to challenge some of the convenient assumptions of human origins made by mainstream science. Many of you sent this to me, and I think the subject matter is intriguing enough to pass along here, especially  as, if one reads the article carefully between the lines, is using the standard idea of "evolution as environmental response" to argue against the idea that humans evolved entirely on their own, on Earth, and entirely naturally:

Humans do NOT come from Earth – and sunburn, bad backs and pain during labour prove it, expert claims

Now, frankly, I find the idea that my occasional bad back problems are an argument for anything else other than a poor mattress or particularly bad dreams is not very convincing. Other arguments - such as our inability to withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight without significant health problems - might be an argument of a human evolutionary response to a different environment than the earth. And similarly with the large size of human babies' heads, and so on. Most interestingly: our bodies' clocks or "circadian rhythms" are adjusted to a longer daily clock than the actual terrestrial day, which, of all the arguments surveyed in the article, I find the most appealing and compelling. (Interestingly enough, the Martian day - depending one whether one measures the sidereal day or the solar day - is between 24 hours and 37 minutes long, and 24 hours and 39 minutes long. In other words, the Martian day is more in line with the human body's natural clock and circadian rhythm than is the terrestrial day.  When these last three things are taken together, it begins to argue somewhat more persuasively. At least, it should make one sit up, take notice, and entertain the possibility.

But there's another bit of science news arguing the same thing, and I referred to this in my most recent book, Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations, and it is this article from the prestigious science journal Icarus:

Is an Alien message embedded in our genetic code?

The Icarus article wastes no words:

They go on to argue that their detailed analysis that the human genome (map here) displays a thorough precision-type orderliness in the mapping between DNA’s nucleotides and amino acids. “Simple arrangements of the code reveal an ensemble of arithmetical and ideographical patterns of symbolic language.” They say this includes the use of decimal notation, logical transformations, and the use of the abstract symbol of zero. “Accurate and systematic, these underlying patterns appear as a product of precision logic and nontrivial computing,” they assert.

ANALYSIS: Are We Living in a Hologram?

This interpretation leads them to a farfetched conclusion: that the genetic code, “appears that it was invented outside the solar system already several billions years ago.” This statement endorses the idea of panspermia, the hypothesis that Earth was seeded with interstellar life. It’s certainly a novel and bold approach to galaxy conquest if we imagine this was a deliberate Johnny Appleseed endeavor by super-beings.

However, there are other possibilities too. I’ve previously written about the far-out notion that the universe we observe was built just for us and exists inside a computer program (with apologies to The Matrix film trilogy). Therefore the idea that some programmer somewhere wrote the genetic code for life in their model universe is consistent with the authors’ suggestions.

Well, yes. The genetic code, and indeed the whole process of evolution,  has to my mind more the appearance of design than not (sorry Mr. Dawkins), but the questions posed by the Icarus article  in terms of Mr. Ellis' book are rather contradictory: if the "code" was intelligently designed, then why design such a bad code for human life here, inclusive of large babies' heads, back aches, inability to live so close to the sun, and body clocks off by an hour from the terrestrial day? Or, on the other view, why design such a code for an intelligent and conscious organism such as homo sapiens sapiens to live elsewhere, and then bring it here and strand it on Earth without tweaking the code a bit to allow a more harmonious existence? After all, if you can design it, you can tweak it.

The bottom line is this: the outlines of that deepest mystery - human origins - are being clarified by science. But in clarifying the outlines, the mystery isn't rendered less mysterious, it is merely made into a sharper mystery.

See you on the flip side.

    In the 3rd trimester, the unbelievable inefficiency of the placental oxygen/waste transfer system makes it a near miracle that any of these large-headed babies survive at all. The baby’s traumatic struggle for survival during the final few weeks must be the major reason most kids grow up to be just like their stupid, idiot, a-hole parents…or worse. Hah!

    • Nidster - on December 3, 2013 at 3:19 pm

      Interesting that chicks need to break through their shell in order to thrive. Interfere with the hatching process by “helping” a chick to hatch and it will usually die.

      The most likely scenario is Earth will be visited by entities who claim to have genetically engineered us, and then proceed to claim us as their “property”.

  3. MattB on November 29, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    Instead of human DNA etc being designed elsewhere, why not in our own solar system when it was DIFFERENT-before Nergal had to remeasure ‘the deep’? Could this suggested lack of ‘fit’ be measured and reverse engineered, compared to ancient myths and hypothesised into a working model?

  4. LSM on November 29, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    something to ponder:

    we’ve been told we live in a 3-D world (wouldn’t doubt it- if one has read Michael Talbott’s “The Holographic Universe”) but yet holograms/holographs are are a fractionalzed DISTORTION of the original light source-

    we’ve been told that the concept of Lucifer means he/she/it is not only the bearer of light but simultaneously the great deciever-

    so could it be that Lucifer (whatever that/whoever may be) deceived mankind by bearing a completely distorted 3-D light source?-

    I’ve always believed we’ve been seeded and my yearning, wanting to reach for something in the stars (like wanting to go home) whenever I look at the night sky continues to this day-

    chide me if you will- but I can’t get my gut feelings ever since my earliest remembrances out of my system-

    “the Martian day is more in line with the human body’s natural clock and circadian rhythm than is the terrestrial day”- if my read sources were correct this applies mostly to blond/redheaded blue-eyed people- blacks’ circadian rythms correspond totaly to our earth- clash of civilizations?- we’re still living a previous cosmic concept it on a mundane terrestrial basis; racism based on skin color, anyone?- I tend to think deeply rooted racism due to skin color has a much deeper cosmic basis-

    There is a whole sub genera of science fiction devoted to this idea. It’s interesting that some in the scientific community are taking up this idea. As to the idea will can’t take in too much sunlight that’s because we cover our bodies with clothes too much and don’t adjust our bodies to the sun by going about naked when it’s a hot sunny day. Then there is also the idea we are a slave race brought to this planet to work our selves to death for the enrichment of our masters who don’t care how long we live so long as we line their pockets with this solar system rich’s.

      We finally brought the Vietnam police action to a screeching halt by chanting the mantram: Take everything off…with a little help from certain (ahem) narcotics, stimulants and psychedelics. These chemicals are now counterproductive and probably were back in the ’60’s, but, wtf extraordinary times called for extraordinary measures. I bet , “Men Who Stare at Goats”, was fairly close to the way it really went down.

  6. DownunderET on November 29, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    What happened to the theory that the Anunnaki came here and created humans by genetic engineering. Seems to me that this theory makes a lot of sense.
    Well we didn’t evolve from apes, and some guy in a book didn’t do it, so this theory sits nicely with me anyway.
    Just remember, the Darwinists and the church have been at it toe to toe for centuries, and neither can prove 100% they are right. If either party could, then there would be no argument.

    Our hidden history is the greatest cover up of all time, just ask Michael Cremo and Richard Thomson.

    • jedi on November 29, 2013 at 2:52 pm

      apes have 48 chromosomes, humans have 46

      so is evolution a process where chromosomes are removed?
      or were apes created from human dna? more logical theory as far as theory goes.
      in the protocols it does say we will teach them theories we know are false and present them as facts.

      • Enlil's a Dog on November 29, 2013 at 4:16 pm

        Most darwinists just blindly accept that our ‘devolution’ in terms of chromosomes from the primate 48 to our 46 happened purely by accident without actually bothering to investigate what actually has to happen for this to be done sucessfully. All they do is parrot buffoons like Dawkins and Strauss et al (their prophets) whilst having no real knowedge of what actually has to happen for this to work.

        Fusing two chromosomes together to make one whilst at the same time maintaining the working structure of the DNA nucleus is a chemical cutting and splicing procedure that must be done with absolute precision – no margin whatsoever for error, or it fails and the creature won’t even come into existance much less be a fully working and functionable life form.

        Then of course this creature with the fully functional 46 chromosomes that just happened to create itself from 48 chromosomes would then have to find another creature out there on the savannahs (somewhere) that also just happened to accidentally find itself with 46 chromosomes so that the two could continue to propagate the species???

        Any scientist that supports that something like this can happen in nature should be dismissed out of hand – it is nothing but bulls**t of the highest order!!

            Homo sapien sapien is just one aspect of the whole tale. The thing that really gets overlooked is the domestication of wild seed – transforming wheat, barley, rye etc etc from their wild progeny by adding chromosomes by factors of 4, and up to 8 in some cases to make them a nutritional food for homo sapien sapien, because the wild versions were no good to us from a nutritional perspective.

            All this genetic manipulation these neolithic cavemen managed to do somehow with absolutely NO working knowledge of either basic biology or genetics??? Key word there – ‘Genetics’; because that is the knowledge they needed to get this done!!.

            My Sister’s father in-law worked at the Department of Agriculture here in the State of Victoria (Australia) for over 30 years and he reckons it’s just one miracle piled on shedloads of miracles as to how neolithic cavemen somehow managed to accomplish all this.

            And to top it all off, with all the magnificent Ag Science laboratories we have all over the world, there is not ONE single vegetable or grain that has been created from scratch, or enhanced that has equal to, or greater nutritional value than any grain or vegetable that these neolithic cavemen (with their knuckles scraping along the ground) developed in Mesopotamia 8,000 odd years ago – that there in itself is proof enough that their knowledge of grain, vegetable and plant genetics was greater than ours today!!

  7. Jon on November 29, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    As far as the “evidence” of sunburn and labor pains go, those are mostly a matter of diet, and, as usual for people today, show an extreme ignorance of human nutrition and nutritional history.

    As Weston Price and others demoonstrated conclusively nearly 100 years ago, most of the health problems encountered by “civilized” (“syphilized,” as a friend used to say) societies are due almost entirely to the changes in diet brought about by the industrial revolution.

    High enough levels of astazanthin will prevent sunburn, among other kinds of skin damage, and sufficiently high levels of fat-soluble vitamins and related nutrients allow for healthier moms and babies, along with vastly easier deliveries.

    Traditional diets followed by indigenous societies made for much healthier, much more robust people, who were also brighter, more pleasant, and had much less mental illness as well. Such societies pretty much no longer exist, with the hand of “manufactured” food-like substances reaching down the throats of nearly everyone on the planet.

    The disruption of our sleep habits by industrial society also contributes to our failing health.

    While much is made of “lengthening” lifespans, few discuss the quality of those extra years, or how the actual data is corrupted. (Life expectancy around 1900 was supposedly around 45, yet the median age of death for the same time period was 57. Sounds like bad data to me . . .)

    Nora Gedgaudas has pointed out that the percentage of the population living to 100 and beyond has been decreasing for nearly 250 years, and that decrease has accelerated in the last 40 or so years. I find that more telling than “average lifespan.”

    It is amazing to discover how many of our “habits” which we are taught are “traditional” are only 150 years or so old, and not “traditional” at all.

    Again, we see the effect of massive changes brought about in the 1800s, much of which have impacted us in negative ways.

    As with the hidden history JPF uncovers, there is much which has been hidden and lied about in the areas of health and nutrition as well. I think it is part of the same plan and process as the corruption of science.

    James Corbett has a great video covering the details of the Rockyfailures taking over the medical establishment and universities about 100 years ago, using their “philanthropic” foundations to ensure control. (Sound like anyone more recent?)

    • LSM on November 30, 2013 at 8:37 am

      I agree with you totaly, Jon-

      and thank you for mentioning the name Weston Price- he is one of the most overlooked, un-sung heros ever-

      most people think the industrial revolution was an advancement of human society but I think it was just the opposite; it took us farther and farther away from Mother Nature, gradualy eroding our instincts while at the same time poluting our planet-

      as you yourself most probably already know, after ca. 1920 there was an exposion of almost previously un-known diseases/conditions such as diabetes, cardio-vascular problems, cancer, obesity etc.- before that time people were frying food exclusively with lard and butter (so why weren’t they obese back then?)- not to mention the increased consumption of tar/coal-based allopathic pharmaceuticals heavily bank-rolled by the Rockefailures-

      the most successful “diet” out there was the Atkins Diet based exclusively on saturated fats (no carbohydrates)- so I think our bodies have been pre-programmed (geneticaly?) engineered to exist on saturated fats-

      and if one has followed the research of Jay Weidner (among others) our bodies were not built to digest grains unless they’ve been previously fermented (sort of leaves out rice and pasta)-

      yes, we’ve been “told” that life expectancy has increased but I think it’s just not the truth-

      anyway, Jon, sorry to “preach to the choir”-

      take care-

    ” Or, on the other view, why design such a code for an intelligent and conscious organism such as homo sapiens sapiens to live elsewhere, and then bring it here and strand it on Earth without tweaking the code a bit to allow a more harmonious existence? After all, if you can design it, you can tweak it.”

    The standard story (form whatever source) is that when mars was devastated, the folks left to come here. Those who could tweek the DNA were not there anymore (died off, left, whatever).

    I don’t claim any knowledge here, but it sure is appealing (which proves nothing) that light skin, hair, and eyes developed further away from the sun. Personally I don’t think the standard evolutionary line has enough time for humans to have “evolved” so differently.

    The ancient word for mars is ars, and is the root basis of ar yan.
    Then there is our “red” faces, for the red planet.

    Is it all bs, a maze, a bull in a china shop? or is there some truth to it? It is odd that a person under hypnosis has a flush appearance which when awoken goes pale and a chinese person is known as a “orion”ental. The great hunter orion. Then through the bull, to the pleades, the seven sisters, and to a invisible star.

    the corner stones of 1200 tons and upwards that were first laid, in very ancient times…..just appear and as time goes on, the stones get smaller and cruder, that is not logical,…and then there is Saturn, with its 13 moons and a very interesting geometric phenomena at its poles. and then you have the layout of the ancient site of giza and elsewhere around the world…and the peculiar arrangement of the 10 boat pits and the “seven” smaller pyramids as well as the angles of the underground water shafts….and then there is the pool of isis, circa 10,000 BC with the flower of life symbols, not painted on, but constructed in a way that is through the stone..and then you have the royalty, killing each other off vying for power with the usual suspects behind the scenes.

    very confusing….and yet, there it is.

        Could be, might have something to do with rev 2.9 and 3.9 …which I think is coded into John 2 and 3…..9 is a very interesting number in the very ancient root system
        and then you have the sound chambers in pyramid, the 27 holes in the ceiling of the ascending gallery, and the analog sound waves and patterns, the algorithms of dna tied in with life?…. the tree of life…funny if you look at a overview of giza 127 is apparent in the 10 (binary) pyramids as is 13 (lunar cycles), and 2 23, which makes a human 46 chromosones…in the boat pits. With the sphinx looking off to that invisible star. The reverse is 322 and a clue in genesis and well actually all through the bible.

        Numbers were not invented, they were discovered. It is neat that Micheal A said if you want to know god study mathematics. A message from god that has been kept secret. A coverup, not many people care actually, … fed fear, led by ignorance with materialism as the vehicle.

        • bdw000 on November 29, 2013 at 9:57 am

          A message from “god” is useless unless you can be certain about what the definition of “god” is . . . .

          I suggest reading Caesar’s Messiah by Joseph Atwill to learn about the New Testament. I doubt that there are any messages from “god” (unless you accept Atwill’s definition of who “god'” is in the NT) there.

          • jedi on November 29, 2013 at 11:00 am

            I strongly suggest you read the NT and interpret yourself, ……the connections between Caesar and Christ are irrefutable as are the connections between Prometheus and Christ….and King Tut and his dad for that matter.

            as for a message from God being useless,….. sigh…..blessed are they that have not seen and believed.
