You think people speak Chinese? LOL
Everyone who's anyone knows that Chinese is just a conspiracy put together by the elite to keep us in the dark about what's REALLY going on.

Dunking is 100% real, though.

I was dunking donuts when I read that post. I tried a basketball, and broke the cup. WTF?

Well Pamam55 has many problems. Her experience of life is based on her once being screwed by disinterested businessmen at sex parties. However considering her name is Pamam55 and her references to Pink Floyd, swingers parties and Vietnam I'm assuming Pamam55 is quite old and the sex was a long long long time ago. She's so lonely today, she has to post on skeptic forums to achieve any human contact.

Not even close......
1) Humans evolved from the same common ancestor as monkeys and apes. (Please read a basic book on evolution before posting again)
2) As humans have common gene pools with other primates, your fantasy claim "We are the product of much more advanced beings" requires the advanced beings to also have produced all the apes. How far back are you going to go?
3) You have not provided one shred of evidence for this amazing claim.

Please set out the reasons that you think support this amazing claim.


For the sport:

Aliens could have created DNA and then, billions of years later, tweaked primate DNA to make the human DNA. Or... perhaps they created DNA and it has, coded in the genotype, the means to jump ahead of the normal evolutionary processes.

There is at least some evidence supporting this kind of claim, for example, the unexplained "jump", RH neg blood groups, the fused chromosome, DNA semantic patterns, non coding DNA...

It's certainly not certain that our DNA wasn't in some sense externally tweaked but equally, its certainly not certain that it was, IMO

For the sport....(with tongue in cheek)

For the aliens to have encoded part of DNA on earth so that certain DNA sequences would jump ahead....to make humans....then why didn't we get human bacteria or lungfish? Why did our fellow DNA ancestors have to go through all those other evolutionary manifestations before becoming human?

Secondly how would the aliens predict what the environment was going to be to ensure that "pre programmed" humans were the right match? For example all those pesky "non-programmed trees" changed the atmosphere. This suggests the aliens had to pre-program every living thing to reach their goal and additionally must have been able to predict the future environments.

This simply doesn't make any sense.

Even for the sport I am not sure how fruitful speculations on conjecture can be!:)

But I shall try!

To your first point: Evolution is an amazing and inevitable process and DNA is a mind blowingly optimised mechanism that supports that process. If you are an alien and you want to make an adaptive subsystem (like genetic life) then, assuming you are not in a hurry, set it off, let it evolve and then, when it gets to a stage you think you could use more specifically, you can tweek the code to design the results.

This is the same argument I would use against nonscientific creationists: a sensible god would be wise to use evolution.

To your second point: I think you can see that my first point answers that, too:)

For some reason whenever anyone mentions Trudeau my mind immediately goes to Trogdor the Burninator.

It could also explain why some people are born without a funny bone.

To gorgeous

Humanoid figures exist in numerous forms, from graffiti on rocks, to statues, to canvases in art galleries, that are not strictly exactly human, and an active imagination could label them 'alien'. Enough such images are recent to enable us to know why they were done that way and what the artist was thinking. Consider Picasso, for example.

The answer is that the artists were not depicting aliens, but simply using artistic license to distort their images for effect.

You need to embrace Occams Razor in order to separate your thinking from crackpot ideas. When two or more explanations are available, the simplest, that involves the fewest outrageous assumptions, is the most likely to be correct.

Given the choice between aliens, or humans telling lies, or presenting inaccurate information, the fallible human hypothesis is far more likely.
