Is Earth a “Alien” Prison Planet?
BY SCIENCE MARCH 15, 2017 March 15, 2017 NEWS
Now a new theory has emerged by a U.S. ecologist who says that conditions such as bad backs and sunburn suggest humans did not evolve alongside other life on Earth and that in fact Humans were dropped off on Earth by aliens. He even suggests that Earth might even be a “prison planet” since humans are naturally a violent species and unfit to be amongst civilized Aliens. In a new book, HUMANS ARE NOT FROM EARTH: A SCIENTIFIC EVALUATION OF THE EVIDENCE, Dr. Ellis Silver says aliens put humans our planet as recently as tens of thousands of years ago. And that why he says the human race have defects that mark it of being ‘not of this world’.
In his book, Dr. Ellis Silver points to a number of physiological features to make his case for why humans did not evolve alongside other life on Earth. ‘Mankind is supposedly the most highly developed species on the planet, yet is surprisingly unsuited and ill-equipped for Earth’s environment: harmed by sunlight, a strong dislike for naturally occurring foods, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and more,” he says. He also finds it strange that babies’ heads are so large and make it difficult for women to give birth, which can result in fatalities of the mother and infant. No other native species on this planet has this problem, he says.
Here are other claims the good Doctor makes:
“The Earth approximately meets our needs as a species, but perhaps not as strongly as whoever brought us here initially thought,” Silver said in an interview with Yahoo news.
“I believe that many of our problems stem from the simple fact that our internal body clocks have evolved to expect a 25 hour day (this has been proven by sleep researchers), but the Earth’s day is only 24 hours. This is not a modern condition – the same factors can be traced all the way back through mankind’s history on Earth.”
“Mankind is supposedly the most highly developed species on the planet, yet is surprisingly unsuited and ill-equipped for Earth’s environment: harmed by sunlight, a strong dislike for naturally occurring (raw) foods, ridiculously high rates of chronic disease, and more. Plus there’s a prevailing feeling among many people that they don’t belong here or that something “just isn’t right.”
“This suggests (to me at least) that mankind may have evolved on a different planet, and we may have been brought here as a highly developed species.”
“One reason for this, discussed in the book, is that the Earth might be a prison planet – since we seem to be a naturally violent species – and we’re here until we learn to behave ourselves.”
“The Earth approximately meets our needs as a species, but perhaps not as strongly as whoever brought us here initially thought.”
“Lizards can sunbathe for as long as they like. We can just about get away with it for a week or two. But day after day in the sun forget it. You might as well just lie down on the freeway and wait for a bus to hit you.”

This guy sure is taking a lot of assumptions pretty far. Not all humans are that sensitive to the sun - mainly the hybrid lines of Neanderthals and Denisovans are more sensitive. Non-hybridized Africans are typically well adapted to the sun. Humans are not naturally violent if we look at extant hunter gatherer societies there is typically little violence within the group and usually no war so long as one band does not infringe on another's resources. It looks like war as well as the loss of egalitarian sexual and social rights are due to agriculture. When looking at our closest primate relatives without provisioning them with excesses of bananas we see that chimpanzees are largely peaceful and that the bonobos resolve almost every social conflict with sexual interaction.

Octopus DNA/RNA Editing

How is mankind the most developed and advanced species when many octopuses, squids, and cuttlefish can edit their own DNA with intent to adapt to their surroundings? Our primary advantage is our use of tools and the ability to handle poison better than most. Just because the planet is not a perfect haven of life does not mean we are alien to it. This is extending the Garden of Eden mythos to the point where the fellow throws God and reason out with the bathwater.

Chronic disease is also a part of humanity's changing environments. In the last 300 years - an incredibly small amount of time considering DNA fossil evidence shows modern humanity arising about 2 million years ago - we have changed how societies eat, drink, think, and interact with the world around us. Is it not more plausible to think that humanity has not yet physically adapted to life shaped by semi-sedentary capitalist bullshit? Also we are not photosynthetic or cold-blooded beings - of course we cannot sunbathe constantly. This is ridiculous.

If true that humans are aliens, then aliens and life on Earth share the same DNA. It's possible that "life" can only exist as an organization of specific acids; but, that would apply to the aliens as well. However, it would still mean that human life is no more ill suited for earth living than any other form --or, in fact, for wherever the aliens originated.

Besides, some human societies live in balance with the natural environment; others don't. Those others include those who live in cities, suburbs, and on farms. Civilizations inevitably ruin nature --unless deliberate efforts are made to preserve it --which of course means admitting that we have some effect.
