First of all, this is a big discussion. Did life originate in the stars?
Many people seem to think so, and in many different forms.
Whether it be,
...there is no shortage of theories
The generally accepted theory in this field is that we are the result of a bunch of molecules accidentally bumping into each other, creating life. However, according to Crick, we are the result of what is now known as Directed Panspermia.
Crick and a British chemist, Leslie Orgel, published their paper (Directed Panspermia) in July of 1973.
Their theory explains that,
This is why a recent paper (Cause of Cambrian Explosion - Terrestrial or Cosmic?) published by 33 scientists in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal suggesting that the flourishing of life during the Cambrian era (Cambrian Explosion) originates from the stars is so fascinating.
There is a great little blurb from Cosmos Magazine, one of the few outlets who are talking about the study:
Indeed this does have huge implications.
The idea that multiple life forms once thought to originate on Earth based on our, very weak in my opinion, theory of evolution, is huge, which is probably a good indication as to why we haven't really heard much about it, and why it will probably come under a good deal of criticism.
It goes on to say that life may have been seeded here on Earth by life-bearing comets as soon as conditions on Earth allowed it to flourish (about or just before 4.1 Billion years ago).
So, it's not like the study is denying evolution, but arguments have been made both ways,
Don't get me wrong, I am not arguing that the process of evolution has not been witnessed in the lab and throughout nature…
That being said, I still believe the theory is very weak somewhat dogmatic, and fishy, especially with all of the fascinating interesting discoveries that have been made, which are left of the record, like giants, for example.
There are those who do believe life was brought here from cosmic chaos and then evolution took place, but it's interesting to think about possible intelligent interventions that may have took place here on Earth as well, perhaps genetic tweaks?
Now, are the tales originating from ancient, indigenous, and Greek civilizations mere stories?
Throughout history, there have always been talks of other worldly beings that seem to go beyond just mere interpretation, that is if you've looked into it instead of just watching something like 'Ancient Aliens.'
The current study (Cause of Cambrian Explosion - Terrestrial or Cosmic?) states, with regards to the Octopus in particular, as one example:
We still don't know how information came to be coded in DNA and RNA.
Much is yet to be discovered and what we currently believe we do know, is not much more plausible than any other theory.
But one thing is certain:
Another quote from the actual study:
This is interesting, but,
I doesn't seem it's too outlandish to assume that there are multiple races just like us which inhabit other worlds, and the fact that information is constantly emerging that we are being visited, and have been visited, also needs to be looked at.
All of this information signifies one thing, that there is life in other places, and that's a definitive certainty.
It's amazing to think how many belief systems this could shatter; the quest for truth is difficult, especially when most of what we consider as truths are simply beliefs anyway.
In these times, it's important to keep an open mind and be open to new ideas that did not once fit the frame.
The point, is, we are not alone. And the world is in the process of finding that out. That topic in itself opens a number of questions and leads into a number of different topics.
It does and will leave no aspect of humanity untouched, and opens up a new dialogue with regards to actual legitimate 'other worldly' contact as opposed to other possibilities, like false flag scenarios.
The point is, like author Graham Hancock once said,
