Just out of interest, how do you think the highly controversial gene tampering with humans fits in with this?
The issues revolving around genetic modification are not central to my thesis; (i.e. that life was seeded on earth by some external creator species for the purpose of reproduction). So when it comes to GM I am just another observer. In my opinion though, I think we would be well advised to leave it alone until we have a better idea about what is going on.
