Is Earth a Prison Planet Where We Were Brought Here by Aliens?
Has anyone ever asked themselves that maybe… just maybe, Earth is a prison planet where humans came into existence, because we were brought here by extraterrestrials?
This is a theory, one which many people believe, and I felt compelled to share it with you to think about, because the connection is evident and the proofs are hard to ignore.
Most of this theory, is based on the fact, that humans are the only beings on Earth with a tendency to sunburn easily, with a dislike of naturally occurring foods, with such high rates of chronic disease and extremely high rates of infant mortality.
We are the descendants of the past inhabitants of Earth who were confined to isolate or stop mental illness, murder, and crime from spreading. And yet, we are just as prone as our ancestors because, like them, we cannot escape the fact that we are capable of exhibiting mental illness and criminal behaviors.
No one is at fault for this inevitable part of human nature brought about by diverged genetic code. There is no escaping this part of man being drawn to violence, lust, vengeance, theft, or even murder. It’s unthinkable, yet our very own species are what causing perverted horrors.
We lie, cheat, steal, kill, rape, debauch, and as if those were not enough, we exert dominion over our natural resources and pollute them. It seems like nothing can also escape the horror we can inflict towards our kind, other beings on the planet, or the distant interplanetary civilization.
The universe’s peace is under human threat for its murderous and perfidious ways.
But it seems like the earth is a strategic prison planet carefully chosen for its composition for hominid life forms’ sustenance. The theory of Earth being a prison planet, suggests that our ancestors were scattered to remote locations on different continents and varied climates with careful selection of Cro-Magnon’s color, size, shape, and languages. Memories were erased before they were placed on Earth.
There was a belief that if survival is possible among the prisoners, they will co-exist and build relationships, and interbreed with the hominid species of the Earth.
How they were wrong!
Soon, humans began to dominate the Earth that led for Cro-Magnons to bring Neanderthals to near extinction after a couple of thousand years. Them who have been ruling the Earth’s surface for more than 200,000 years.
Initially, the exile of Cro-Magnons was working according to plan, but apparently, the sudden turn of events proved all the assumptions and oversights wrong. The primal state of prisoners was impossible to achieve as soon as our ancestors started building a small-scale interplanetary civilization.
The Earth now, as we see it, is the result of a history of the man showed and excelled in their ability in the fields of architecture, art, written languages, agriculture, animal husbandry, advanced mathematics and physics, religion, law, government, and technology.
But men did not interbreed with other life forms but systematically manipulated and destructed them instead. On top of it all, the earth witnessed modern man’s savageries.
But what about the astounding development of our ancestors in intelligence and technology? Testing revealed genetic memory caused intellectual reversion instead of progression, prompting a heated debate over different supposition on the matter.
Others believed that our ancestors were exterminated immediately even before they “remembered” genetically, while others never doubted that our ancestors would self-destruct, observe, and curtail development.
It was a dead-end, and additional contact was not allowed. Although there is an agreement on the prison planet’s observation as well as assessment, some restrictions were made. What is a notable fact is that Earth’s most significant events in history for the last 10 million years happened upon the arrival of our ancestors and when annihilation of Neanderthals began.
Of course, not everyone will agree on how our ancestors were wiped out on the planet. But who knows? The answer to the unknown remains.
But since we are on the subject of Earth being a prison planet, what is the possibility that somehow… someway…maybe we are aliens on this Earth we call our planet?
We, humans, endlessly think about the origins of our kind and the fundamental questions of “what am I?” and “where did I come from?” has been the cause of never-ending the debate between scientific studies and religious beliefs.
The answers to these questions are not equally valid, but interestingly enough, some answers lead to speculations which can make you wonder and ask, “what if?” The perfect example of this would be the hypothesis of “Prison Planet” wherein humans are hypothesized to be aliens exiled on Earth due to inability to behave according to alien standards and utopia.
Dr. Ellis Silver addressed this topic in details in his self-published book Humans Are Not From Earth: A Scientific Evaluation of the Evidence. Although posed as an “American ecologist” whenever the book is mentioned, there is no publication of scholarly research related to his supposed project in cleaning the Pacific of plastic debris.
If you are not skeptical about the source material, then maybe you might also wonder if this theory that Earth is a prison planet is a stand-alone. Alex Jones, among many others, thinks that the argument must have a case.
In Silver’s book, he explains the humans are aliens as evidence suggests considering how humans maladapted to the terrestrial environment. Cited examples include the human’s tendency to get sunburn easily, high tolls of mortality among infants as well as chronic diseases, and dislike of processed foods.
Silver also adds during an interview on Yahoo! News, that: “There’s a prevailing feeling among many people that they don’t belong here or that something ‘just isn’t right.’”
Still, the question remains, why the need to send us here on earth? According to Dr. Ellis, the violent nature of the humankind is the answer. Until humans learned to act in a primal state, we are somehow condemned to eternity in this prison planet and never be able to return home.
What could back-up for these observations made by Silver without real evidence? There is skepticism on his theory as most arguments are based on selective readings between differences of species. For instance, he compares humans and lizards on their ability to stay out in the sun without getting sunburn.
Silver believes the reason why humans get sunburn, is not because they don’t have fur on their skin, since it’s clear that there are many other animals, mammals in particular, without fur, scales, or feathers to cover them like elephants, rhinoceros, and more. The reason is… because we do not originate from this planet. We were simply brought here.
Another contradicting evidence is the 99% similarity of chimps’ and humans’ genetic composition. This fact proposes that we share an evolutionary history in about 5-6 million years past. Furthermore, the Earth’s inhabitants share a metabolic and genetic commonality.
This, according to Dr. Bernhard Haubold, a bioinformatician at the Max Planck Institute, “very likely that there once existed a universal ancestor” and “all living things are related to each other,” therefore disproving Silver’s thesis even with only this as evidence.
Also, there has been a steady drop in infant mortality wherein the cause of these deaths could be a disease, malnutrition, as well as environmental factors. It should also be noted that the human brain appears to be cut out to respond well from cannabis which can be found across the world? One could think that either this is a coincidence, or we have sympathizing aliens for our keepers.
The very idea of Dr. Ellis’ theory is plain to see. You can see a clear resemblance with biblical claims and the precedents in our history. In the Bible, it says we were banished from Heaven. It’s evident in a manner in which the humankind is condemned on Earth to live a sinful life, and the only way to go to heaven is to live in harmony and peacefully without harming another being.
Our history also depicts a similar picture when British empire used both Australia and North America as settlements for British convicts. From the penal colonies, the convicts became slaves to countless plantation owners. If you look around at the chaos and violence on the planet, wouldn’t you think of it as hell or extraterrestrial prison already?
It would appear like the figment of our imagination isn’t matched with the strange reality. We exist on this planet because millions of lifeforms so diverse materialized through shared bacterial ancestors that swam around and away since the beginning of time.
Life on Earth is hardly one you can call perfect, but the randomness of life’s existence is something one can scarcely call prison neither. But then again, is it?
Are we, the human Species, from Earth?
No matter how you see it, there seems to be an unknown world in the galaxy. Why? If we exist on Earth as have our ancestors in the past, then other planets may have a life form living or may have lived without our knowledge or capacity to prove their existence. And if this were true, would it not revert to the question, “are we aliens imprisoned on Earth?” and “is Earth a prison planet?”.
A significant group of people believes that there is no concrete evidence, scientific or otherwise, of modern humans’ evolution on earth, and that human ancestors existed on Earth about 50,000 – 60,000 years in the past because of banishment and imprisonment.
Scientists will disagree on this unless some hard proof is produced, but just like opinions, suppositions and its verity will vary. One truth remains that the probability is extreme that somewhere in this universe there may be life.
Logically speaking, there is a probability that life couldn’t have been a selective dispersal throughout this universe. So we can surmise that if there is life here, there must be somewhere as well considering there are planets with environmental and climatic conditions similar to that of Earth’s.
The life we know may be the same for other life form existing, or the ones in the past proving the possibility that we may not have evolved here on Earth, and our origin, as well as our genealogy, is terrestrial.
Why is it that evidence, though circumstantial, lean towards the probability that we are in fact exiled to Earth?
Many believed that we are banished here due to our bad nature. And the only solution to curb this tendency is to put us on exile, to isolate us from those who can remain in their primal stage. The differences in our physical attributes are due to evolutionary adaptation.
You may wonder, if we were such deviants, they could’ve just reintegrated us into our society after genetic repair. But why did they not do so? There are two probable reasons for this.
One, something must have gone wrong with genetic manipulation that it was banned. Two, under the intergalactic law, forced genomic modification is considered as a violation of civil rights, so therefore strictly forbidden.
The necessity to isolate human with violent and mental instability grew so intense than ever, so they were assessed, selected, and arrested for exile.
When our ancestors have exiled here on Earth, it was under some form of conditions which include:
* Memories were stripped off from the prisoners
* There will be no technology or tools
* Prisoners’ placement on the planet with wide-ranging climate closely similar to former worlds
* It is strictly forbidden to contact, help, or development interference
* There should be a great distance between intergalactic civilization and prison planet
* There will be periodic monitoring and assessment among prisoners
When this plan to isolate our ancestors were carried out, there was a hope that somehow nature will take its course and solve our “problem.” But here we are, and our ancestors have long gone with human nature still unpredictable as it once was.
Will it ever change?
The prison selection committee carefully chose the Earth, and a fleet of spaceships carried our ancestors on a trip that started our imprisonment here on Earth. This is how we originate…this is the beginning of our captivity.
Perhaps one day, when we transcend our limiting believes, our greed, aggression and every other ego-driven limitations, we will rejoin our galactic family and live in peace in the galaxy, free to travel and explore like we once did.
