You’ve gotta’ love this headline: “Science news: Octopuses came to Earth from space as frozen eggs millions of years ago.” This article’s been everywhere the past few days. I really love the headline because it makes it sound like a pronouncement from SCIENCE!!! when in reality it’s just a theory from some scientists who were faced with a problem and then dreamed up a solution.
This story is actually very big news, however. Just not for the reasons they think. For one of the first time, SCIENCE is openly admitting that macro evolution does not explain where all life on Earth came from. For years, we were told that any thought that all forms of life that exists or existed on Earth was the product of random mutation over billions of years.
Anyone who said different must be one of those crazy oogedy boogedy fundamentalist nutjobs force feeding the Bible down children’s throats. Any questioning of macro evolution being the sole cause of all the varied forms of life was verboten.
But SCIENCE has come to realize that given the fossil records, this theory doesn’t hold water. To be honest, they’ve known this for a while but have refused to admit that Darwinism can’t fully explain life in its myriad forms on Earth. So now they’re allowing the theory of panspermia to fill in the gaps. That’s right, space octopi!!!
Science news: Octopuses came to Earth from space as frozen eggs millions of years ago
OCTOPUSES are “aliens” which evolved on another planet before arriving on Earth hundreds of millions of years ago as “cryopreserved” eggs via a process known as panspermia, radical new research has suggested.
The extraordinary claims were made in a report entitled Cause of Cambrian Explosion – Terrestrial or Cosmic? which was co-authored by a group of 33 scientists and published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal.
The paper suggests that the explanation for the sudden flourishing of life during the Cambrian era – often referred to as the Cambrian Explosion – lies in the stars, as a result of the Earth being bombarded by clouds of organic molecules.
But the scientists go on to make an even more extraordinary claim concerning octopuses, which seem to have evolved on Earth quite rapidly something like 270 million years ago, 250 million years after the Cambrian explosion.
The paper states: “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes more than is present in Homo sapiens.
“Its large brain and sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies, instantaneous camouflage via the ability to switch colour and shape are just a few of the striking features that appear suddenly on the evolutionary scene.
“The transformative genes leading from the consensus ancestral Nautilus to the common Cuttlefish to Squid to the common are not easily to be found in any pre-existing life form – it is plausible then to suggest they seem to be borrowed from a far distant “future” in terms of terrestrial evolution, or more realistically from the cosmos at large.
“One plausible explanation, in our view, is that the new genes are likely new extraterrestrial imports to Earth – most plausibly as an already coherent group of functioning genes within (say) cryopreserved and matrix protected fertilized Octopus eggs.
“Thus the possibility that cryopreserved Squid and/or Octopus eggs, arrived in icy bolides several hundred million years ago should not be discounted as that would be a parsimonious cosmic explanation for the Octopus’ sudden emergence on Earth circa 270 million years ago.”
The 2016 film arrival features the first contact between people and a race of alien octopuses
The suggestion is all the more interesting because octopuses have frequently been touted as a possible model for extraterrestrial beings.
Cephalopods, especially octopuses are regarded as the most intelligent of all non-vertebrates, with the highest brain-to-body ratio.
In ten years, panspermia will be just as untouchable as the theory of macro-evolution. And those who doubt the space octopi theory will be crazy fundamentalist types.
Just add this to the list of things you have to believe to not believe in God.
