I’d like to make a confession. I believe our species is a byproduct of genetic manipulation by advanced lifeforms. That said, I cannot subscribe to the word “alien” to describe said beings since they were basically here before us. I also believe that hard evidence is all around us. In our scriptures, our ancient monuments, our cave drawings, our effin’ DNA. Everywhere. The biggest problem with our species is the inability to take these clues and construct a historical narrative that is far less primitive than what religious doctrines of today exploit, over and over. There, I said it.
