So i like watching this television show on history ancient aliens and just the other night i watched this video on their way on how we came to be and this had me like woah. Okay so i guess back then like 5,000,000 years ago there was such things as neanderthals (like cavemen) and so i guess they where here living and one day lets say this spaceship comes from wherever they where at and basically genetically inserted human dna or i dont know how they did it but they said the aliens wanted to start mankind for us to mine gold because aliens really loved gold or something in those words and from then on we somehow developed. So okay Darwins theory on evolution i understand now that things change over time but i really dont understand how a monkey formed into human could this be how those cave like monkey men formed into human because of aliens please explain another question can their really be some way were genetically formed from them and if so how would they have human dna to do it? So many things in the past are just signs that they where here and still are and i believe in them but im a strong believer in God. No rude comments about God i want answers about aliens.

Dara, please try harder to ask your questions in a more concise manner. Your sentences are quite inconsistent and combined with bad spelling it really makes it difficult to gather the crux of what you are asking.

You say you understand the theory of evolution but immediately states that you don't understand how monkey formed into human. Based on this statement I suspect you never understood the theory of evolution so my best advice for you is to go revisit the basic principles of the evolution theory. Regarding everything you say about believing in residing aliens, spaceship, god and so on I only have one word to answer you... NUTS!

You are correct, Artor, Erich Von Daniken was NOT a scientist. If I inadvertently conveyed that idea in what I had mentioned in the previous posts, I apologize. I remember reading Chariots of the Gods, and even when I was young, nodded my head in disagreement. Apparently, Carl Sagan thought the same thing. The fact that History Channel displays this show, and that many people still think that these "evidences" are true when they are most certainly not, is quite sad.

I would like to just toss in a little defense of Dara here (pardon me, Dara, for speaking about you in the third person).  Dara started here in what seemed a covert attempt to proselytize or 'harvest souls'.  I was one of the people who met her harshly in that regard.  Not to be put off, she posted some challenges to Atheism and was met with some firm, if not derisive, replies.  Seemingly a real trooper, she has continued to lob some questions and comments onto the forums that, for us, seem rather naive but, for her, show an honest interest in how skeptics approach such things.  I, for one, would like to see this line of inquiry rewarded.

 

Now, Dara, I would like to suggest that you take a little more time in composing your comments and questions (particularly blogs & discussions).  It doesn't matter what anyone here thinks of your writing, but you should remember that you are writing in a public forum and you might want to represent yourself in the best possible light.  I might do well to consider that as well when I'm in my more vulgar moods.  Either way, it may take 20 minutes to wait and then proof your blog, but it will save dozens of people several minutes in reading it - the net result is that original posters should feel an obligation to be concise and clear for the greater benefit.

 

Anyway, sincere questions deserve some consideration.  Dara has already indicated that some of the responses here have inspired her to research some more information and I think that is wonderful.  Never stop asking questions.

YES! i love that show, they go so deep in explaining things, but yeah i seen that episode and its a very great concept.

Honestly, not even a slim chance.  DNA sequences out the exact way you'd expect from evolution.  If aliens had tinkered with it in any way that would make a real difference, it would be very obvious now that we have sequenced the entire genome.

My run-on sentences gotten me to college

Oh dear.

 

Dara, I'd like you to know that I am basically in agreement with Heather. Asking questions is good, and you should keep doing it.

 

However, when you casually wave off your appalling spelling, grammar and punctuation as just laziness on your part and assume that we should just know what you mean, then you A) overestimate your ability to communicate in a text environment and B) underestimate my willingness to accommodate your laziness.

 

If you want to be treated as an adult, stop acting like an ignorant child.

Comment by Spencer on August 28, 2011 at 10:50pm

I must ask, what actually spurred you to this conclusion? If aliens could travel over here and manipulate DNA, would they be likely to have the ability to mine?

 

On the somewhat related topic of alien life coming over here and blowing us off the face of the earth... honestly, I think that it's more likely that humans get into space and find other life, quickly turning into a reverse-War-of-the-Worlds scenario. We want YOUR resources, Mars.*

 

More disappointingly, we go 'over there' and find out they've begun to worship us as gods. A somewhat likely event if they're not more advanced than us, but quite saddening.

 

*I know there's probably nothing on Mars, I use it here for the irony of reversing its original role in WotW.

Dara-- Your "run-on sentences gotten me to college"? Really? A real college or a hair/nails/makeup college? If it is a real college, then shame on the professors who are taking your money for classes and CLEARLY not teaching you anything about speaking as an adult. Speaking of which, if you have achieved college-level education status, then you are no longer (technically) the child you claim to be. Once again, if you're old enough to use a computer and blog, you are most definitely old enough to use those punctuation buttons that are surely getting lonely on your keyboard. It is a good thing to be curious, to question, to want to understand everything around you; but in the same note, it is time to grow up and have a little self-respect and represent your intellect soundly, succinctly and accurately. You go to a job interview dressed nicely to show others that you are qualified and professional and know what you're doing, correct? The same concept applies here. If you're going to present yourself as an intelligent adult, start by acting like you weren't asleep in every single English class you've ever taken.
