From the 'X Files': ET's May Have Left Message Code in Human DNA

There's also a chance that past visits to Earth by intelligent aliens left signs much closer to home. But probability and the length of the universe's age suggest that any such alien visit would have taken place before humans ever emerged on Earth, says Paul Davies, astrophysicist with Arizona State University.

That means any traces of an alien visitation would have had to survive for hundreds of millions or billions of years of erosion and plate tectonics for humans to still find them today.

"If there is another form of life on Earth, we could find it within 20 years, if we take the trouble to look," Davies told Astrobiology Magazine. "Of course, it may not be there, but searching our own planet is far easier than searching another one."

Non-human deposits of nuclear waste consisting of plutonium would point to artificial origins, because natural deposits would have long since decayed, Davies said. Scars of mining or quarrying could remain buried beneath the Earth or on its moon.

Perhaps the most fascinating possibility is if aliens used bioengineering to leave behind unintentional or intentional traces or messages in the DNA of life on Earth. The self-perpetuating nature of life forms could help ensure survival of any such biologically-embedded messages.

Citizen scientists and school students could pitch in to run genomic versions of SETI programs to find any such traces, Davies said. Data-mining software programs could do much of the heavy lifting as just a small part of the usual genomic analyses going on in everyday research.

Alien bioengineering might have also created a "shadow biosphere" of life built upon biochemistry separate from that of Earth life forms. Examples would be life forms that don’t use DNA or proteins, or incorporate different elements in their biochemistry than all other known life forms on Earth do. Scientists have already begun major efforts to find shadow biospheres, but of natural rather than artificial origins.

If scientists find "weird" shadow organisms that arose separately from the Earth life forms we know, that won't necessarily suggest intelligent alien involvement. But such a find could give more credibility to the idea that life has a good chance of arising when given the right circumstances, rather than simply being a one-time freak accident, Davies said. And that might make everyone feel a little less alone.

lil wayne is a martian

Rather, I think he may be an alien...

This article seems like a lot of speculation with not much of anything to base it on. Surely an alien civilization advanced enough to travel the stars would:
* know the futility of encoding messages in DNA given its inherent instability & mutations over time.
* probably have energy systems far beyond uranium or plutonium nuclear reactors. Thorium reactors, fusion reactors and mass-scale solar all have big advantages over traditional nuclear fission once you get the technology down.
* probably not even have a need for mining Earth. But if they did, why wouldn't they be more complete? Just release some gray goo to sort out all the elements and you could probably suck all the nuclear materials & precious metals out of Earth's crust.

Going back to the DNA issue, as far as I know our understanding of the tree of life is beautifully elegant, insofar as all the life forms we've sampled can be placed quite nicely into a tree of life diagram. Any alien life forms, or alien tampering with terrestrial life forms, would stick out like a sore thumb with a genome that looks radically different from anything else on Earth. Most life forms share quite a large number of genes with each other, and this allows for fairly accurate placement in the tree of life. Something with alien genes in it should stand out markedly, like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle that is obviously from a different puzzle.

There is evidence all over the Earth that aliens were present here. I suggest the writer look up Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Daniken, the Nephilim in the Old Testament, The Watchers in the Book of Enoch, Ancient Sumer and The Anunnaki, the reptilian god of the Maya, and the Star Beings and Sky People of the Southwestern Pueblo Indian tribes. This is also why Intelligent Design better fits the evidence than does the theory of evolution.

Look up EarthHistory.org.uk It is the best explanation of Intelligent Design I have found. http://www.earthhistory.org.uk/introduction

Extraterrestrial evidence or Atlantis evidence

What is your opinion?
