Did Extraterrestrials Genetically Engineer Humans?
Creationism and evolution are two popular theories of how humankind came to be. While they are perhaps the most widespread theories, there is another school of thought: Humans were created by extraterrestrials.
It may sound far-fetched at first, but, arguably, no more so than creationism or evolution. Some researchers, like Zecharia Sitchin, believe extraterrestrials genetically engineered humans to work as slaves. Others, like David Icke, hypothesize extraterrestrials are even more diabolical and have manipulated human consciousness to control the entire world. Let’s take a closer look at the different subsects of this lesser-known theory.
Former sports broadcaster-turned-researcher David Icke conducted extensive research on the role extraterrestrials play in human engineering.
Icke adamantly claims an extraterrestrial species, known as the Reptilians, controls our world. These menacing creatures allegedly have the power to shapeshift and take human form and have assumed the forms of political leaders to maintain global control.
Reptilian-like figures are prominent in many ancient texts — the serpent in Genesis’ Garden of Eden; the half-bird, half-snake Mesoamerican god Quetzalcoatl; and Greek mythology’s Medusa are all great examples. This recurring theme of “god-like” Reptilians could potentially indicate these creatures have been on Earth throughout human existence and perhaps played a role in creating us in the first place.
Another theory explores the idea that extraterrestrials manipulated our DNA to create a mixed bloodline on our planet. The most notable piece of evidence to support this theory is something called the Rh factor.
The presence of the Rh factor in human blood makes the blood type positive, while its absence makes it negative. Most people are Rh-positive, and only 15 percent of the population does not have the Rh factor.
The Rh factor can be attributed to other species, specifically primates. The absence of it continues to remain a mystery. However, some believe it stems from extraterrestrials. Most alien abductees are Rh-negative. Is this a coincidence? It seems unlikely.
The Missing Link
“Missing link” is a popular term we’ve all heard at one point or another. It’s an informal term used to describe a transitional species, or a species that connects two together, such as apes and humans.
Gregg Braden has explored missing links and human genetic modification in depth. He publicizes the fact that human DNA shows “unmistakable signs of planning” that evolution alone cannot explain. In addition, he points to the fact that, according to the fossil record, modern, highly intelligent humans seemed to appear almost overnight about 200,000 years ago.
How did we progress so quickly from primitive apes to highly advanced beings? Is it possible that another species deliberately manipulated our genetic code?
Extraterrestrials & Genetically Modified Humans: Past, Present, and Future
Some of the aforementioned theories may sound a bit uncanny, but there is plenty of evidence that suggests extraterrestrials indeed influenced mankind. Ancient artwork, written texts like the Popol Vuh, and ancient artifacts all depict or reference otherworldly beings. Perhaps their impact is even more powerful. Perhaps we modern humans are a product of extraterrestrial engineering.
As genetic engineering continues to evolve and change over time, one can’t help but wonder if this is a new technology or if history is repeating itself. We’ve completed enormous feats throughout the years, from discovering DNA to sequencing the human genome to cloning animals and even genetically modifying human embryos.
Such incredible power and progression inevitably raise ethical concerns over whether or not we are “playing God.” Could we also be “playing alien”? It will be interesting, to say the least, to see where genetic engineering takes us next.

The Ubaid Lizardmen Figurines; Reptilians in Ancient Sumer
By now, the idea of reptilian humanoids sharing this planet with us is nothing new, especially to those in the world of ufology and alien conspiracy. And if we look closer at what is being uncovered at ancient archaeological digs, it has become evident to many that signs of an ancient reptilian race may be right in front of our noses.
A recent discovery at the Al Ubaid archaeological site, where many pre-Sumerian 7,000-year-old artifacts were found, depict humanoid figures with lizard-like characteristics. Now interested parties are left wondering whether these are images of mythical figures or actual beings who still live among us.
Evidence from Sumerian Statues of the Distant Past
The Ubaid period is a prehistoric era particular to Mesopotamia that falls sometime between 5500 and 4000 BCE. The period is much older than historians have accepted as the beginning of civilization associated with ancient Sumer. Sumerians are considered by academics to be the creators of civilization (4500 to 4000 BCE).
The name “Ubaid” comes from Tell al-‘Ubaid, the location of the earliest excavation of ancient material discovered in what is now modern-day Iraq. According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the people of the region left behind “baked clay figurines, mainly female, decorated with painted or appliqué ornament and lizardlike heads,” all of which have been found at a number of Ubaid sites.
