You see there is this theory going around that a long long time ago, so very long time ago, before Mahathir, some bacteria containing rocks originating from Mars shot into Earth's atmosphere and landed at some kind of warm vent in the ocean.
The bacteria survived the journey and being the pests that they were, they reproduced and evolved with time. Some of course chose not to and remain bacteria until the present time.
I was watching tv and some researcher showed a rock which he swore, ala Saiful, originated from Mars. I wonder how he knew? Maybe it had 'Made in Mars' stamped or engraved or he felt so close to home holding it.
I am not going to argue with him on that coz he is the researcher and I am only a two bit blog writer, not an unemployed woman, but a blog writer, with a different sex organ, all the same.
Well if this, and let me repeat it, IF this is true, what does that make us? Yes, you are right, we are in fact Aliens. Our microscopic ancestors hitched a ride a few billion years ago and decided to make Earth a home.
Now comes the billion dollar question. Were our ancestors chased out of Mars by bigger, more complex beings or by their own kind, i.e. bacterias?
To answer that question, all we have to do is look around us. Two world wars and countless other wars; political instability and turmoil; murders, rapes, beatings, kidnappings, oppressions and other Earthly demeanours suggests 2 things.
First it suggests that our ancestors were injected into rocks and shot out of Mars because of their, and thus our, destructive tendencies which must have got into the nerves of the other beings in Mars. They just couldn't take it anymore. They must have hated our grandfathers so much.
The other suggestion is that there was a battle of bacterias and one faction, the winner of course, shipped the other one, our ancestors the losers, here.
Whatever it is, the bacteria which was our ancestors were made of real stern stuff coz we, their descendants, are still here and thriving at our destructive best and Mars is bone dry and barren, zilch. Who's the winner now?
No wonder we are in the state that we are in now because we are actually being ruled by bacterias.
