Are humans aliens? Well, if someone had asked 300 years ago where life came from, the answer would have been "from heaven" or "God created us". But today, if a person asks the same question, then science will not be satisfied with the answer, but will continue to pursue the truth and try to figure out how life came to be on Earth.
There is no shortage of versions, but no one has yet received strong enough evidence to move from hypothesis to generally accepted theory. In search of the key to the main mystery, we once again turn our attention to heaven. What if we are all children of panspermia created by aliens from other worlds?
How were humans created?
Are humans aliens? How were we created and who created us?
The idea that life did not originate on Earth but was brought here from outer space first appeared hundreds of years before modern science. The Athenian philosopher Anaxagoras was the first to propose the theory that humans were aliens. At that time, the word "panspermia" appeared, which can be translated from the Greek as "seeds everywhere". As Anaxagoras believed, it was these seeds that became the source of life in the universe. In ancient times, his view was too bold to take root further.
Life on Earth from outer space
In the 19th century, when Charles Darwin laid the foundations of the theory of evolution, he remembered the concept of allspermia. Darwin never touched on the question "How did life come into being?" This question. Because he understood that his theory had already had the effect of a bomb blast in the scientific community.
Charles Darwin believed that humans were aliens.
But this great scientist has aroused interest in the topic. As early as 1865, only six years after the publication of On the Origin of Species, the German physician Hermann Eberhard Friedrich Richter suggested that the first microorganisms were brought to Earth from space and that meteorites played a transport role.
Gradually, the idea of having spermatozoa began to take root in the scientific community. As early as the end of the 19th century, such famous scientists as Lord Kelvin and Svante Arrhenius claimed that life could have been brought to our planet from outside. Admittedly, the latter believed that the transporters of life were not meteorites, but fungal spores moving through space under the influence of light.
Did meteorites bring extraterrestrial life to Earth?
Were humans brought to Earth by meteorites?
According to calculations, the probability of spontaneous generation of life on Earth is small. However, the alignment may be different in extra-terrestrial conditions. It can be assumed that the first life appeared outside our planet and was then brought here. The all-essence theory does not answer the question of how life first appeared, but only provides a distribution mechanism.
Any serious theory needs not only authoritative supporters, but also evidence. The search for evidence of the origin of extraterrestrial life began in the second half of the 20th century. Researchers drew attention to meteorites, in which they hoped to find traces of alien microbes in the debris.

In 1965, the public enthusiastically accepted the news of the discovery of seeds in the Orgueil meteorite, which was, of course, considered to be of extraterrestrial origin. It turned out that those seeds belonged to terrestrial plants; they were placed in the debris and camouflaged by a man's hand. Exactly who did this remains a mystery.
In 1996, NASA announced that tiny fossilized bacteria had been found in the Mount Allen 84001 meteorite that arrived on Earth from Mars. This was the time when scientists began to make up their minds about the theory of allospermia, but many of them did not agree with the conclusions of NASA experts. The bacteria-like structures detected could have formed in a simple chemical process.
Since then, several other research groups have announced that they have managed to find traces of extraterrestrial origin in fragments of other meteorites. However, each time the results obtained proved to be very controversial and were not accepted by the scientific community as evidence for the all-precision theory.
Evidence of extraterrestrial life in space
NASA first identified the possibility of extraterrestrial species in space from the Apollo 12 mission
The first evidence that humans were aliens to some degree was due to the Apollo 12 flight to the moon. in November 1969, while reviewing the components of Surveyor 3, one of the research teams discovered Streptococcus retardans (a common harmless bacterium from the human nose, mouth and throat), which survived the journey to and from the moon completely. Such organisms that can tolerate extreme environmental conditions are known as extremophiles.
The ability of microorganisms to tolerate the harsh conditions of outer space was also confirmed by an experiment conducted on the International Space Station in 2008. Or more precisely, falling water, where rock debris was placed. The bacteria there managed to live in outer space for a year and a half.
The idea of sending life to someone behind the earth
Who is the creator of mankind?
One version of allospermia states that the propagation of life throughout the universe is not necessarily a natural process. Perhaps there is someone behind the idea. The first serious proponent of that version was Nobel laureate in medicine Francis Crick. He argues that traveling between star systems and colonizing galaxies may be an impossible task even for highly developed civilizations. In this case, they would like to spread life in the universe in a different way.
According to Crick, the most logical solution is to send the simplest forms of life to other planets in the hope that the microbes will take root in new places and provide plenty of seedlings for new intelligent species. The scientist did not rule out the possibility of life on Earth. Crick believes that in the future, humans themselves could begin to spread the seeds of life throughout the galaxy.
