Maybe the Earth is not our planet?

The curious hypothesis of the cosmic origin of mankind was put forward by the American ecologist Ellis Silver

The question of how exactly our planet received life remains open. Some scientists believe that the first living organisms appeared on Mars. Others indicate that many amino acids have been discovered in space. And therefore, life could appear in the entire solar system at the same time. 

What is out there in the solar system? Living organisms, in their opinion, are everywhere in space. And somewhere, life advanced very quickly to complex forms. And somewhere, it remained at the microbial level.

Among researchers there are those who believe that planet Earth is not really the birthplace of mankind. And that we, in fact, appeared in some other place in space. And we just settled this world once in ancient times.

This is not our planet

There is one environmentalist in America, his name is Dr. Ellis Silver. A few years ago he wrote a book in which he reflected the above point of view

People are not at all from the Earth

Neanderthals startled and looked at each other.

The author claims that humans cannot be “natives” on this planet. And perhaps they came here from completely different places. Silver makes arguments based on human physiology. He suggests that we did not evolve along with other forms of life on Earth. But in fact, we arrived from somewhere else in the universe. Or some extraterrestrial beings brought us here tens of thousands of years ago.

Does that sound crazy? Or is it contrary to your beliefs? Having read this, your friends may be ready to laugh at you and tell you that you are reading insane theories? Do not listen to them. It is believed that higher entities were actually left to watch us …

But seriously – why not? Maybe we really look at familiar things in a different way? After all, we really want to understand our tasks in this world and find out our real origin. In addition, Silver is still an environmental scientist. He devoted his life to cleaning the Pacific Ocean from plastic waste. And, besides, Silver claims that his book is based on completely scientific works. They studied the obvious differences between humans and other animals.

So what are the facts and arguments of the ecologist?

Does your back hurt? Time to go home

Silver believes that some chronic human diseases, such as back pain, may indicate that people actually evolved in a world with less gravity. The scientist also talks about other unique human traits. For example, that babies have relatively large heads and women have difficulties in childbirth. (The question is debatable here. It turns out that in our native world, babies have smaller heads or something?). Silver argues that no other species on Earth has such a problem. He also points to 223 additional genes in humans that are not found in any other genome of an earthly being.

Silver believes that the human race has “serious flaws” testifying that we are not from this world.

“We are all chronically ill,” says Silver. “If you find a person who is 100% healthy and does not suffer from any (possibly hidden or unidentified) condition or disorder (there is an extensive list in the book), I will be extremely surprised. I haven’t seen such people. ”

Yes, it was not without reason that the famous saying was born that there are no healthy people. This topic is severely unexplored.

“I believe that many of our problems stem from the simple fact that the clocks of our internal organism evolved in a 25-hour cycle. This has been proven by sleep researchers. But the earthly day lasts only 24 hours, ”the scientist writes.

Raw meat? Eat yourself

In his book, Silver suggests that one of the possible places where a person actually appeared is Alpha Centauri, the star system closest to the sun.
What other arguments does the scientist give? He writes that humanity is obviously the most highly developed species on the planet. However, man is surprisingly poorly adapted to the conditions that our planet provides. Sunlight gives us cancer. Natural (raw) foods disgust us. We have an extremely high level of chronic diseases and much more. Plus, many people have the feeling that they are strangers in this world. They feel like guests on this planet.

Silver suggests that humanity did not evolve on Earth from a specific local ancesto but was developed in a completely different place. We were transferred to Earth as a fully developed species of Homo sapiens somewhere between 60,000 and 200,000 years ago.

Could an American environmentalist be right? Could it be that this planet is just our colony? The idea is interesting. And there is not a single argument that would completely reject such a possibility …

A man who has been to hell told what sinners are punished for

The story happened to one man named Zhao Tai during the reign of the Western Jin Dynasty (265-316). It is described in a collection of Buddhist stories.

At some point, Zhao felt a severe pain and immediately lost consciousness. The man’s body remained warm, so loved ones waited for him to wake up. This happened only 10 days later. After “returning”, Zhao told what happened to him.

Immediately after losing consciousness, a horseman arrived at him. Two escorts led the Zhao to the east, where a big glorious city was located. There were thousands of people who, together with the hero of the this story, descended to the underworld. A man in a dark red robe asked what kind of sins he had committed. Zhao replied that his father and brother were officials, that he studied at home, did nothing wrong and did not commit crimes.

The man was the assigned to command the prisoners in hell. Some went with punctured tongues, others were hugged from red-hot iron, and others had their body part boiled in cauldrons. If a person died during these trials, they were instantly brought back to life. All punishments corresponded to crimes.

If a criminal could cope with all tortures, the next stage would be rebirth and reincarnation. Killers and thieves became pigs and sheep, which the owners eventually slaughtered for meat; people who led a decent life turned into birds and animals; those who did not repay their debts during life turned to horses and donkeys for hard work.

In order not to go to hell, a person must constantly improve and not commit evil deeds. In the underworld, they knew that Zhou was allotted another 30 years, so they released him into the human world.

Exciting (fairy)tales, aren’t they?

5G networks act as an accelerator for diseases

There are concerns that the UK could be severely affected by the coronavirus due to the deployment of the 5G network , conspiracy theorists say.

There are currently 3983 confirmed cases of COVID-19 recorded throughout Britain and Northern Ireland. The disease has spread rapidly since it was first discovered on January 31, 2020. The death toll is 335 people and Prime Minister Boris Johnson warns that this number will increase significantly.

As coronavirus spread around the world , a new conspiracy theory found a grateful audience: virus symptoms: fever, cough and shortness of breath – this is how the human body actually reacts to 5G. The theory was met with skepticism by experts who noted that coronavirus was detected in many areas without 5G networks. Anti-5G critics living in the UK believe the virus most likely started in Wuhan and was shipped to the UK. But they are concerned that an ultra-fast network, currently operating in nearly 100 locations across Britain, could help the disease spread faster.

Somerset-based activist Louise Thomas told The Daily Star Online:

“We cannot say that 5G caused the coronavirus, but that could make it worse.”

Tanja Rebel, another activist and teacher of philosophy at Whit College, said:

“Many studies show that electromagnetic radiation suppresses the immune system and helps viruses and bacteria thrive. Thus, electromagnetic radiation and, in particular, 5G could act as an accelerator of the disease. We don’t know for sure, but common sense and a preventive decree urgently need a moratorium on testing 5G until we can say that it’s safe.”

The precautionary principle states that governments and societies should be wary of responding to anything that could cause catastrophic damage that is not yet fully understood by science. The Public Health Authority of England asked for comments about 5G networks. In Italy, which is now the country with the highest coronavirus mortality rate, 5G networks were established in five cities in 2019 with plans to increase coverage throughout 2020.

A 2011 study at Northeastern University in Boston showed that some unicellular bacteria, such as E. coli (E. coli), can communicate with each other using “radio waves.

“Very little is known about COVID-19, the new coronavirus that underlies the current pandemic, but studies have shown that viruses “talk to each other” when deciding whether to infect a carrier. Activists are now urging the government to stop deploying 5G networks for public health. “Especially in today’s situation, it’s crucial that we don’t play with the lives of our citizens. That would be reckless,” Rebel said.

Coronavirus plus Armageddon. What are the dangers of alien asteroids who fly to Earth

The leap year 2020 has prepared many surprises. Fans of various kinds of conspiracies have already found predictions of the spread of coronavirus in the statements of Vanga and Nostradamus. However, the true end of the world can overtake mankind from a completely different perspective.

At the end of next month, a Planet Killer will fly next to Earth. It is found out how likely the collision of the planet with an asteroid is and what its consequences will be.

A block the size of a village

On April 29, a giant asteroid 1.7 kilometers long and more than four kilometers wide will fly very close to Earth. The giant space object is called the Killer of the Planets and flies together with a company. According to NASA, which cite the media, this company will be its “little brother.

“Two asteroids – 1998 OH and 1998 OR2 – are characterized as “potentially dangerous” because their sizes are “large enough to lead to global effects if one of them collides with the Earth.”

Will humanity die?

Scientists give answers to this question in a different way. However, NASA still reassured, arguing that in April the end of the world should not be expected. Asteroids will not come closer than five million kilometers to our planet, despite the fact that their flight path will not be so far from Earth.

However, to prevent these threats, there are large research centers scattered around the world. It is in them that data is collected annually on the fall of cosmic bodies to Earth.

According to various sources, each year, about 500 meteorites slightly more than half a kilogram fall to Earth. Most drop in the ocean or burn out in the atmosphere, but they are all so small that they go unnoticed.

On the other hand, the consequences of a collision of the Earth with such a large cosmic body as the Killer of the Planets can be fatal. You can look at them on the site Impact: Earth!, created by scientists from Purdue University and King’s College London. So, the fall of an asteroid with a diameter of 1300 meters into the ocean at a speed of 38 kilometers per second will lead to tsunamis and earthquakes lasting almost 20 minutes.

If we take the example of another asteroid – 1997XF11, which will fly near the Earth in 2028 – you can see a map of devastating consequences if it falls, for example, in the center of Spain. Its diameter is 1.6 kilometers and a speed of 48,000 kilometers per hour.

The first circle denotes the area in which there will be nothing alive. The second – yellow – limits the area where the vast majority of living things will not be saved, and if they survive, they will have very serious health consequences. The inhabitants of the red circle will be able to stay alive with a slightly greater degree of probability. The green zone awaits massive destruction. Finally, the purple and gray circles are areas that will be struck by a blast wave: deafening sounds, debris and ashes await them. Looking ahead – in the event of such an asteroid falling to Earth, the fate of dinosaurs awaits humanity.
