It may look like a script from an episode of «X-Files», but it is definitely a subversive and highly imaginative theory developed by an American scientist.

As the theory supports, the human was not born on Earth but on another planet. That is why we demonstrate a series of “dysfunctions”, which would not exist if we were the “product” of Earth.

The theory states that we are by nature unruly and aggressive beings and that is why highly developed aliens brought the human population together and exiled them to Earth…

This extremely extravagant but definitely interesting theory was developed by Professor of ecology Ellis Silver.

In his book “Humans are not from Earth: a scientific evaluation of the evidence“, Dr. Silver explores the “signs” of extraterrestrial origin of humans. First of all, humans commonly suffer from back pain problems.

Dr. Silver explains it with the notion that our species may have descended from a planet with less gravity than on Earth. According to him, we also face problems when we are exposed to direct sunlight for a relatively short time because we evolved in an environment that was not so close to the sun.

An additional argument offered by the Professor focuses on parturition difficulties and especially those resulting from the fact that the size of the head of a newborn child is disproportionately large.

We are the only species on the planet with such high rates of complications and mortality during pregnancy and childbirth, emphasizes the scientist. He also notes the fact that humans have difficulties dealing with harsh weather conditions, for example, extreme cold or heat.

The theory also considers the paradox that human shows a strong dislike for many types of foods that nature provides. Silver says that human is sick very often because, among other things, our biological clock is tailored for a day of 25 hours, which was confirmed by certain studies.

Silver believes that anatomically modern human is a hybrid resulting from the crossing of the Neanderthals with another kind of humans who came to Earth from 60,000 to 200,000 years ago from a planet in Alpha Centauri, the closest star system to us.

The explanation the scientist gives for our arrival on Earth is that the aliens we lived with could not stand our indiscipline and aggression and sent us here as a punishment, i.e. we were ‘imprisoned’ here to become… humans.

Are You Convinced by Dr. Silver’s Arguments?

Ellis Silver’s theory is definitely an unusual one. But he seems to ignore some pretty simple facts. In particular, human DNA is highly related to that of other species on Earth. For example, genetic studies have shown that our DNA is 96% the same as that of a chimpanzee.

So, Dr. Silver’s arguments seem more like a catchy presentation of extravagant ideas rather than a solid scientific theory.

    Close. We are created for one purpose, to expand the universe which we are about to do again. However that which created us to complete this task does live somewhere else.

    así cuando allá volvamos, podremos seguir siendo todo lo hdrmp que somos aquí……………algunos ya se restregan de alegría desde el cogote a las pelotas………

  3. Michael

    How about adding some information about Silver? A link or the title of whatever he wrote?

  4. MarkmBha

    This is a very bizarre theory. With all the facts pointing to evolution!

  5. Simon

    Hithhikers guide to the galaxy has the answer of our origin.. And it’s not 42..

  6. Andrew Heinrich

    Philip K Dick wrote about this way better. Hack ecologist should read once in a while. Also, why Alpha Centauri? I can make random guesses too, can I get my papers published?

  7. Bull

    We’re only Sick and cold because we live unnaturally. Same for back aches. Thers are no chairs in nature. People suffer in the sun because they migrated from a different climate. Unrulliness is the natural state of any animal.

  8. ginger

    Hmm very interesting! Thats why theres a book Men are from Mars ha

  9. Jeson Gonzalez (MALAYSIA)

    Scientist says that people will always believe whatever scientist says.

  10. James

    Interesting, but this is not a new theory.
    Michael Cremo asserted this theory many years ago.

  11. JaRon

    Im familiar with the bible and its beliefs, and although I hold them as true wisdom, I’m not trying to push views on people.. But this theory sounds plausible and in Genesis, the human race is exiled from Eden and forced to live on earth as mortals because we were unruly..

  12. Baba Saidas

    What is being propogated as new theory is already there in ancient texts of India.

    Mmmm Well i think we have probably interacted with an Alien Species 40,000 years ago. There is actually a religion Based around Aliens about a Mining Colony that came down to Earth. The Inhabitants on Earth were too dumb to mine so they used 7 of their own women to give birth to the new “Humans” from Primates using Genetic Manipulation (Now this religion is over thousands of years old and it talks about Genetic Manipulation!)
    In the North East Of Australia somewhere there is an Old Aboriginal tribe that sings stories about aliens that Came down to Mine and how they where created.
    I am not saying I believe this but I am an Aussie and I have heard them sing their song and i have done research on this topic.

    My life also has been Great but ever since a small child I would look up at the Spiraling Galaxies in the Sky and I truly believe I have another home out there somewhere. Every time I look Up at that Huge universe, I just wish they would Pick me up and Take me home… or to a new world that I can Call home.

  15. K

    and if we are made to be here, why humanity destroy his habitat? explane it to me please…

  16. A

    If you believe this you haven’t read a book in your life.

  17. Rick

    Anyone reading this… have you researched the Annunaki… if so … the above text will make sense…. do your homework carefully… namaste.

    Although I’m open to everything, I would bet that the “back problems” are due to people spending most of their free time on a couch, or not having the correct posture when sitting up in a chair, which all comes from laziness. The majority of us are a lazy species. As for not liking the “Earth grown” foods, I instantly think it’s because we have horrible diets, get addicted to “non-nutritious” foods and live for the things that slowly kill us. As far as the sun causing damage to our bodies…. I’m willing to bet when this world was first created “or boomed into place,” the sun was less of a threat, but due to us destroying the ozone and causing global warming (if you believe in something like that) over a long period of time, the sun has become more of an enemy to our bodies than a friend.

    For the last year I have been suspecting something like this. Sometimes I think I must of done something terribly wrong in a past life and now I am in hell paying for it. Does God love violence? A big part of me says yes more and more these days… just take the universal principle that says the more desperate you are the more people are repelled by you. That’s a no win situation and very cruel to the person that can’t get out of it. The more depressed and negative you get the bigger shit sandwich you are served. Fuck the Universe and the horse they rode in on.

  21. Objectivity v. Romantic Notions

    meant to type: “everything else [“ascension”,”free energy” & technology to make us dependent on ET’s] is just the ET promising corporations, leaders, & people & abductees what they want to hear, this is ET propaganda from a clever thief in our house.

    The Allies of Humanity Briefings are pure, contain a preparation in them & thus, I feel deeply are THE essential thing to consider & be with re: outside forces here on our planet & taking our people secretly.Within your heart you will know & resonate with the truth of your experience in these mattes, as I have.

    humans or humanoids imprisoned us here since the theory involves mixing of genes not possible with different species question is are we just going to wait for our jailers to be merciful and be kind or do we break out of prison planet earth and get pay back

    1. Wendy

      You do know that we (genetic-manipulating neophytes that we are) have already mixed lighting-bug genes into tobacco plants, right?

  23. Will Lewis

    Professor of ecology Ellis Silver plagiarized my theory from the website, which was published over a decade before his ‘startling’ concept.

  24. Wendy

    There isn’t a whole lot of difference between Silver’s hybrid argument and the Annunaki genetic engineering argument, EXCEPT that the Annunaki story doesn’t require “imprisonment” of the ET’s for us to end up with their DNA. As to the “25 hour day,” there’s also the argument that Earth used to have days a bit over 12 hours, which is why theories suggest we may be programmed to nap during the day. A somewhat-over-12-hours day doubled might add up to about 25 hours.
