Depending on your age, there was quote that was made in the movie, Lawrence of Arabia, where T.E. Lawrence says, “Big things have small beginnings.” This same quote was given by the Android, David in the film, Prometheus. The film, Prometheus, was a prequel to the Alien movie franchise, and even though the film sparked controversy and confusion among the fans of the franchise, I understood what it was trying to do.

It was a breakthrough film that created the dialogue for the theories on the subject of panspermia and intelligent design; albeit, in a way that is far beyond the biblical account and Michael Angelo’s God touching Adam’s finger.

Intelligent design has always been a more politically correct way of teaching the controversial biblical creation in the public school system. I have no problem with most of the religious account found in Genesis, however, the idea of God being reduced to that of a magician offends me.

I will tell you though that if you can detect design, then people have a reason to infer a designer. or, an “engineer” of as I have said Grand Order of Developers, which creates a highly-appropriate acronym.

The Theory of Evolution suggests how life might have evolved over a long amount of time into the countless varieties of creatures and humans we find on Earth. Even though science says that this is enough, it certainly does not satisfy the 46% of Americans that believe that the earth and its inhabitants were created around 10,000 years ago.

My family saw the film, Alien Covenant yesterday, which had me recalling the feelings I had about the movie before it was called, Prometheus.

“Prometheus” begins with a provocative sequence on a planet that we presume was the earth prior to the times of “Eden.” A spaceship hovers, and a giant bald humanoid emerges from it. This being stands on a ledge next to rushing waters.

Ingesting an unidentified substance, it doubles in pain, vomits, and fragments. Its pieces fall into the water, where we see them multiplying into countless…living cells.

And from these cells presumably human life comes to Earth.

It has always been said that a planet containing water can evolve life on its own. That’s why scientists are focusing their attention on both Europa and Enceladus, because heated water may be underneath both their icy crusts.

The event of introducing the cells from an alien to the waters of Earth, is a way to convey the star seed or Panspermia theory to the audience. This incident depicted in the film was the beginning of man.

That is proven by the most startling discovery by the crew of the Prometheus; that the beings they discover on the distant planet-sized moon called LV-423 have DNA that is identical to ours. That two races in far-separate parts of the galaxy would develop identical DNA is, highly unlikely. That one race would leave behind cave drawings pointing the way to LV-423 closes the case.

Themes of ancient alien structures, clues written in stone and even ghosts of the engineers or Gods are fascinating subjects that we here in the real world are now talking about as the road to alien confirmation is being paved with confidence.

Sources close to the new Alien Covenant film have said that the beings that we saw in the Prometheus Paradise were either ancient human’s, or another “link in the chain”, so to speak – not Engineers. Engineers did not create Humans, but are part of a linked, evolutionary chain, set in place by another, higher being. According to the authors, mankind as we are now, are the 4th or 5th Generation of this evolutionary chain – not the product of natural selection and ape evolution.

Once again Ridley Scott, the director of the Alien film franchise, reveals that an even higher being created the Engineer race and we share DNA with them.

Ridley Scott recently made a statement about the reality of alien life.

“I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely. An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me ‘have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous. Scott continued to say that the experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there. They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now.”

According to Scott, however, there is no need to travel to the outmost reaches of the galaxy to get exterminated. He serenely explained:

“So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it, because they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.”

Beyond Ridley Scott’s warnings of alien encounters, the “engineer” or panspermia theories continue to grow and they give us even more reason to wonder about our origins and just what it means to be human.

There is a question that has been posed by higher-thinking scientists, and it is one that needs to be asked. Wouldn’t a designer or creator of a planet, its creatures and mankind, like any creator sign his work?

What if the signature of our creator or creators can be found in the genetic code?

Maxim Makukov has proposed this idea. It’s unorthodox; you might call it “out there”. Makukov understands that. He knew he’d have his critics the moment he began to develop it. But it’s there in the numbers, he says. And numbers don’t lie. A cosmologist and astrobiologist at the Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute in Almaty, Kazakhstan, Makukov says the numbers reveal that all terrestrial life came from outer space. Not only that, it was planted on Earth by intelligent aliens. Billions of years ago, the planet was barren and lifeless.

But then, at some distant and unknowable moment, it was seeded with what Makukov calls an “intelligent-like signal” – a signal that is too orderly and intricate to have occurred randomly. This signal, he says, is in our genetic code. Highly preserved across cosmological timescales, it has been waiting there, like an encrypted message, for anyone qualified to read it.

All of the teeming varieties of life on Earth; from mammals and dandelions to trees and us, carry it within them.

And now Makukov, along with his mentor, mathematician Vladmir Shcherbak of the alFarabi Kazakh National University in Almaty, claims to have cracked it using simple math — and a reoccurring number—the number 37.

In fact, 37 reoccur frequently in the code. For example, the mass of the molecular “core” shared by all 20 amino acids is 74, which is 37 doubled.

Makukov and Shcherbak’s looked to the genetic code without rummaging through DNA, and found a “Code within a code.”

The genetic code shouldn’t be confused with the genome, which is a specific set of genetic instructions for making a fruit fly, say, or a giant redwood.

Instead, it specifies how to convert those instructions into proteins. Unlike genomic DNA, the code is stable. Genomes mutate over time, but the code is passed down the generations without alteration and appears to have remained almost completely unchanged for billions of years.

For that reason, says Makukov, it is the perfect place to plant a message.

Billions of years ago, he says, that is precisely what happened. To test the idea, Makukov and Shcherbak devised a mathematical approach to analyze the code, searching for patterns unlikely to occur at random.

Their arguments are often dense and impenetrable, filled with complex mathematical formulae. But at heart, Makukov says, “it’s very simple”. The genetic code is like some type of combinatorial puzzle, he says. In other words, once you begin to analyze it, hidden regularities emerge.

Soviet mathematician Yuri Rumer pointed out that the genetic code can be divided neatly in half. One half is the “whole family” codons, in which all four codons with the same two initial letters code for the same amino acid. The AC family, for instance, is “whole” because codons beginning AC code for threonine.

On the other are “split family” codons, which don’t have this property. Rumer first noted that there is no good reason why exactly half of the codons should be whole. More profoundly, he also realized that applying a simple rule – swapping T for G, and A for C – converts one half of the code into the other.

Rumer’s transformation is just one of many patterns and symmetries within the code.

The idea that terrestrial life has extraterrestrial origins has a long and sometimes distinguished history. The standard version goes something like this: a primitive alien life form, perhaps a bacterium, somehow hitches a ride through space aboard an object like a meteoroid, collides with our young planet and seeds it with life. Against innumerable odds, its descendants flourish and spread across Earth.

In 1871, Lord Kelvin hypothesized “that there are countless seed-bearing meteoric stones moving about through space”. In his 1908 book Worlds in the Making, Nobel laureate Svante Arrhenius named the process “panspermia.”

As recently as 2009, Stephen Hawking speculated that “life could spread from planet to planet, or from stellar system to stellar system, carried on meteors”. Prestigious backers notwithstanding, panspermia has not found widespread acceptance, although many biologists accept a weaker version of it. Most biologists will agree there is a contribution to the origin of life on Earth from cosmic sources.

When I spoke with Linda Moulten Howe at the Contact in the Desert Gathering, we discussed the frequency of creation and possible confirmation through scientific exploration of human design. She recommended that I look into a book called, The Eerie Silence, by Paul Davies, a physicist at Arizona State University, wrote about genomic SETI – the idea that our genome might house a secret message. He was following the physicist George Marx, who in 1979 wrote: “It is possible that a few billion years ago an advanced civilization prepared some sort of message using genetic engineering and sent it to Earth. This extraterrestrial DNA molecule became the starting point of biological evolution.

The idea goes back to 1973, when Francis Crick published a paper in the planetary sciences journal, Icarus, at that time edited by Carl Sagan.

In it, Crick asked the question: “Could life have started on Earth as a result of infection by microorganisms sent here deliberately by a technological society on another planet, by means of a special long-range unmanned spaceship?”

Extraordinary claims like this require extraordinary evidence. For more than a century, people have been trying to find at least some of that evidence – proof of the existence of sentient aliens.

If an alien race “engineered” life on Earth, that leaves its own origin completely open, and doesn’t remotely require that they have to be gods or god-like, they could have been very advanced farmers that knew how to seed various planets and left behind in their seeds numeric codes in the genetics of every creature.
