Re: Let’s Talk
I am incredibly confused how this topic got to be talking about human evolution. I think all Shade meant to do by bringing up bats is to show how much more resiliant they are to common ailments that harm and kill humans. Just a simple comparison of immune systems. Which kudos for the info, I wasn't aware that bats could have 100s of different diseases at one time and survive.
However, if we want to start talking about our origins scientifically and the presumed evolution of humankind… you may as well start from the beginning and incorporate astronomy. The whole idea of the Big Bang theory. Or the idea some astronomers have that we are in fact, all Martians. It's what the term panspermia is based on… the idea that life exists on Earth because the potential for life already existed elsewhere in the universe; or more simply that life exists on Earth because of microorganisms from outer space. The Earth, being approximately 4.5 billion years old has had enough time stabilize. So hypothetically while Earth was still in a fragile state, meteoritic bombardments on Mars caused organics to be blown off and land on Earth. It's then that we see prehistoric creatures such as the dinosaurs. They have a merry good time for a while but bombardments continue. These huge impacts result in the extinction of prehistoric life; take the 180km wide crater we know and love as the grand canyon. Life, gone. So then we ask, if that's really what happened, how the heck are we here now? Following the same theory, these really big impacts that “sterilized” the Earth blew material off into space. Centuries later this material then hit Earth again, allowing it to repopulate. Evolution takes it's course… add in the biological details and DNA comparisons of various species and there you have it.
I'm not saying this is what I believe or that this is the only truth and that you should all believe it… I'm just throwing one of many theories out here in a nutshell. Make of it what you will. Aliens.
