Why Are We so Different from the Other Species? Are humans Alien to This Planet?

There are U.F.O sightings and E.T. encounters all over the world every day but despite this fact most of us are still on the fence in regards to whether or not aliens actually do exist. Alien crop circles incessantly appear in farmer’s fields all over the world, especially in England and this ‘could’ be an attempt by aliens to contact us. The evidence is insubstantial as far as we know and therefore not enough to prove the existence of Alien visitors to Earth, however, I have another question I wish to pose: Are Humans Alien? Where do humans come from?

Yes only IF there is life on the other planets, and also that we have landed on, and showed ourselves upon that planet
only then they will the right to call us humans ET

Seeing as we share common ancestors with other animals on Earth I would say no,the article seems to be saying all life came from outer space which is a whole different thing.

Even if life originally came from space (http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Panspermia), I think that after 3,5 billion years on earth, we can call ourself native. :alien:

From the article:

"The same applies to the birth of humanity. Evolved from monkeys? There are doubts about the theory of evolution too".

Now...Humans did not evolve from monkeys. Humans are more closely related to modern apes than to monkeys, but we didn't evolve from apes, either. Humans share a common ancestor with modern African apes, like gorillas and chimpanzees. Scientists believe this common ancestor existed
5 to 8 million years ago. Shortly thereafter, the species diverged into two separate lineages. One of these lineages ultimately evolved into gorillas and chimps, and the other evolved into early human ancestors called hominids.


Having said that, if the author of an article cant get man's evolution right, what other mistakes of thought are in his.her theory?

ETA: heres the common ancestor of apes, monkeys and HUMANS!

We are really not different from all other terrestrial life.  We share genes with every living thing on Earth.  If we are alien so is all other terrestrial life.

This is all most the same thought I had a while ago.
It was just an idea that maybe we're the aliens, our planet was going to be destroyed, so some escaped and came to earth, and then we forgot our history.
But then I added it to my 'book idea' list :P

Interesting topic :)

Easy.  The human being is not endemic here.  The bible intimates as much with it's descriptions of interbreeding.  

It explains so very much.

The structure of humans shows that we contain the same nerve layout as fish do. We are related to fish. Our links to life on Earth make it abundantly clear we are a part of the life that evolved on Earth.

Or an alternative,  you can consult genomic research that shows there is a strong case for a common source for all terrestrial life.   Humans are not special or different.  We are part of the same tree of life as protozoans and bananas.
