perhaps i was unclear here, google "darwin machines" and "darwinian machines".. i can't find any references for the laboratory thing right now, but consider the Galápagos Islands as a makeshift science laboratory in the meantime.
yes, i know what that is. it's in the first paragraph of my first post
. . . . . . convinced me to question 'evolution' (defined as one string on life that mutated from species to more complex species by means of natural selection i.e. less favorable survival triats not procreating and being weeded out of the gene pool...) . . . .
and unless there's been a bank security camera filming the earth since the beginning of the planet - then life on earth has never been observed from starting point of chemicals all the way evolving and morphing to the modern human being (A to Z)
what's been observed is more like..... all within a species of insects that aren't green being selected out of a gene pool because they don't camouflage with plants in their habitat so they get eaten and don't pass on traits . .
that's why no matter how you huff and puff, evolution is a theory . . . a theory that makes alot of sense and has supporting evidence suggesting its veracity
. . but none the less -> a theory
again, the part that has yet to be explained to me is ufo aliens .... and why are they supposedly taking sperm and egg samples .... why do the reported aliens look like a version of humans .... why have multiple abductees reported being shown alien/human hybrids ?
my beliefs don't rule out that they are us! and our entire 'evolution' has been guided
like an ant farm
by the way, a nasa scientist named richard hoover claims to have found evidence of alien life this week
he found some kind of bacterial fossil in a meteorite . . it resembled life as we know it on earth....
it was in the news
(again, more theory)
i believe no one living has the answer - just bits and pieces of it
this is a cave painting that some people believe depicts aliens or time traveling astronauts
there are others
and this is from wikepedia...Proponents of ancient astronaut theories often maintain that humans are either descendants or creations of beings who landed on Earth thousands of years ago. An associated idea is that much of human knowledge, religion, and culture came from extraterrestrial visitors in ancient times, in that ancient astronauts acted as a “mother culture”. Other proposals include the idea that civilization may have evolved on Earth twice, and that the visitation of ancient astronauts may reflect the return of descendants of ancient humans whose population was separated from earthbound humans. These ideas are generally discounted if not ridiculed by the academic and skeptical communities.
Proponents argue that the evidence for ancient astronauts comes from supposed gaps in historical and archaeological records, and they also maintain that absent or incomplete explanations of historical or archaeological data point to the existence of ancient astronauts. The evidence is said to include archaeological artifacts that they argue are anachronistic or beyond the presumed technical capabilities of the historical cultures with which they are associated (sometimes referred to as "Out-of-place artifacts"); and artwork and legends which are interpreted as depicting extraterrestrial contact or technologies.
Mainstream academics, when they comment at all on such proposals, have responded that gaps in contemporary knowledge of the past need not demonstrate that such speculative ancient astronaut ideas are a necessary, or even plausible, conclusion to draw. Academic researchers in related disciplines generally maintain that there is no evidence to support the proposals of ancient astronauts or paleocontact. Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the double helix structure of DNA, however strongly believed in what he called panspermia, the concept that earth was 'seeded' with life, probably in the form of bluegreen algae, by intelligent extraterrestrial species, for the purpose of ensuring life's continuity. He believed that this could have been done on any number of planets of this class, possibly using unmanned shuttles. He talks at length about this theory in his book Life Itself.
In their 1966 book Intelligent Life in the Universe astrophysicists I.S. Shklovski and Carl Sagan devote a chapter to arguments that scientists and historians should seriously consider the possibility that extraterrestrial contact occurred during recorded history. However, Shklovski and Sagan stressed that these ideas were speculative and unproven.
Shklovski and Sagan argued that sub-lightspeed interstellar travel by extraterrestrial life was a certainty when considering technologies that were established or feasible in the late '60s; that repeated instances of extraterrestrial visitation to Earth were plausible; and that pre-scientific narratives can offer a potentially reliable means of describing contact with outsiders. Additionally, Shklovski and Sagan cited tales of Oannes, a fishlike being attributed with teaching agriculture, mathematics, and the arts to early Sumerians, as deserving closer scrutiny as a possible instance of paleocontact due to its consistency and detail.
