In another article, we discussed the possibility that Earth is a prison planet with the Moon as its guardian. Suddenly, Dr. Ellis Silver stipulates a theory that corroborates the prison part of that article.
Furthermore, Dr. Silver’s theory comes to give credit to older theories maintaining that the human being is not natural on this planet.
All of these theories are based on the differences between man and all the other species that inhabit the planet. Dr. Silver’s theory focuses on the claim that mankind is not suited to live on this planet, along with behavioral patterns that suggest as if we are here as a sort of punishment.
We will discuss Silver’s observations in conjunction with the rest of the theories in order to extract a conclusion. The basic elements of all the theories put together are:
1. Bad backs
Silver claims that the problems that spine and back problems humans face are a clear indication that our original environment is one of lower gravity. Earth’s higher gravity puts a strain in our skeleton and the result is the back pains.
Humans, in contrast with other species, cannot sunbathe for more than a given time per day without getting sunburned. According to Silver, this indicates that the human body was not designed for constant exposure to the sun.
Dr. Silver stipulates that humans are always ill because they evolved on a 25 hour per day environment instead of 24 as on Earth, and they have not adapted yet. The older theories add to this concept than in many cases, when there is an illness, humans are disabled and cannot carry out their workload, which rarely occurs in the other species.
4. Dislike of the Earth environment
Many people have a profound dislike for all foods that are naturally grown. An equal amount of people do not feel that Earth is their home.
Many have reported visions and dreams of other worlds with other circumstances and other living conditions much better than even the best conditions available on Earth. Dr. Silver sees is as an even further indication of human beings been brought here from someplace else.
5. Birth difficulty
Babies’ heads are too large, which presents a problem to women when there are giving birth, a problem which may result in fatalities to both the mother and the infant.
6. Growing up
Dr. Silver does not mention this point, which is a major issue for the older theories. In all species that inhabit the Earth, the offspring is capable of doing things in a relatively short time, which may vary from just a few minutes to eight weeks after birth.
Human offspring are completely helpless and powerless to do anything for at least ten years before acquiring some capabilities. It takes another five to ten years before it can perform the duties and the requirements of carrying their weight around. Something that is never seen in all other species put together.
The human being does something that no other species has been observed doing – we use external tools to overcome our physical shortcomings. Has anyone ever seen an elephant with an artificial leg? Or an owl wearing real glasses?
Lions and the other carnivores will hunt to eat and they will engage in fights almost always for reasons of reproduction. Most fights in the animal kingdom are actually for reproduction and areas for feeding. And whenever there is a fight, when the victor is declared, the fight is over.
There is no observance in any other species than the human being for retaliatory attacks, pre-emptive strikes, and most of all weapon construction in ever-increasing lethal potential. Unless anyone has ever seen a mouse with an M-16 at hand and never bothered to inform anyone about it.
According to these theories, this is the most important argument to suggest that mankind is not from here. The inherently violent nature.
As stated by a World War II journalist in condemnation of mankind: “People kill each other because they like to.” (Ernie Pyle, war correspondent – responding to a question posed by Maj. General John P. Lucas).
He went on to say that when someone kills someone else, he lives that moment more vividly than any other moment of his life. At that specific moment, he is more than he will ever be again. Has anyone ever observed this kind of behavior in any other species?
Dr. Silver puts this issue into mankind being sent to a prison-like Earth until we learn to behave ourselves. It seems that after 4,000 years of recorded history, things are getting worse, not better.
The book that Dr. Silver published, as per his own words, is not a study, but ideas for debate. Strangely, this book resonates with other controversial theories like:
- Mankind landed on Earth on starships to escape a destroyed world.
- Mankind is brought here from a reverse universe, either through a random occurrence or through intentional action.
- Mankind is brought here as an experiment of evolution.
These theories will be discussed along with their features in future articles. The focus on this one is whether there is validity to the claim that we did not evolve on this planet.
Why Is Dr. Silver’s Theory Unplausible?
As expected, the theory was met with criticism and skepticism from other scientists. For example, Dr. Silver completely neglects the fact that humans share a big percentage of their DNA with other living beings on Earth.
But there were also favorable opinions like the one of Prof Milton Wainwright of the University of Sheffield. According to him, life is constantly brought to Earth from other worlds.
In any case, Dr. Silver’s arguments are rather weak and should be perceived more as an extravagant idea to entertain one’s mind rather than solid evidence.
Until science finds irrefutable proof as to the origin of mankind, there will always be evidence and circumstances in favor of one theory or another. But it is beyond any reasonable doubt that man is quite a different species than any other on this planet. Science will have to prove why.
