Product Description

Product Description

An evaluation of the evidence for and (mostly) against man’s evolution on Planet Earth, by a leading environmentalist and ecologist.

Including:
An evaluation of the thirteen leading hypotheses
Seventeen factors which suggest we are not from Earth
How did we get here?
When did we get here?
What is our home planet like?
The most likely stars that our home planet orbits
If the aliens are out there why can’t we detect them?
Are we the aliens?

In this fascinating book Dr. Ellis Silver provides answers to all of these questions, based on current evidence and thinking in the scientific community and elsewhere. Links to websites that discuss the evidence and debate the issues in more detail are also provided.

This short book is intended to raise awareness and stimulate debate and to request/gather further evidence from readers. It is a prelude to a more in-depth work that will be published in 2015 and will be available free of charge to readers who purchase/borrow this first edition. (Please keep your Amazon receipt as proof of purchase.)

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm now sure humans are not from earth 17 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very interesting read, so much to make you think, recommended to theorists of history being wrong, ancient astronauts. Very true that we are not adapted to this planet, If we had been here longer, like other animals we would have evolved to adapt, but we haven't!

5.0 out of 5 stars Humans; Freaks upon the face of the Earth! 9 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have never believed in evolution. It seems self evidently absurd to me, a primitive belief introduced by a primitive tribe into human mutterings. Don’t get me wrong; in any exopolitical situation I would always take the side of the human, against our reptilian overlords, but it has to be said that humans are not well adapted to the planet Earth. This in itself refutes the theory of evolution. Dr Ellis Silver presents this argument in a thought provoking and concise way. The form of humans is repellant and disgusting, we are neither here nor there, neither gods or animals, we are a Frankenstein’s creation dependent on the aetheric transceiver of our brains for survival. Dr Silver makes an error however when he implies that white people go black after a few generations in sunshine. This is obviously not the case and was never the case in colonial times.

I have experienced the feeling of alienation that goes along with being human. Humans appear to be some kind of sick joke, a prank played by Jehovah or God for the amusement and consumption of Reptilian higher -ups. It has to be said that it is the white races who have introduced most of the disharmony and upset on Earth in the last two thousand years. Does this mean that the white races are the most recent alien introduction? I have never thought of it in the timescale suggested by Dr. Silver; that humans were introduced only a few thousand years ago. I will have to think this over for a while. One hopes that he is not referring solely to white people. I believe that there is a constant intermingling of human races throughout the galaxy; the reptoids supervise this and farm humans on this prison planet as they see fit, controlling human consciousness with aetheric transmissions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoy to read the book 12 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a Molecular Biologist myself, I does agree human share similar functions of genes with other species on the earth, as book mentions, from Bacteria, flies, plants and animals, one way to suggest we are part of this big families. However, as author's theory, we are jumping too fast to become what we are if just replying on evolution, The author provides a different view to explain why we are not from earth, crossing different fields to explain and support the theory. In the end, you don't have to agree but you have to admit that "we are not quite fit to our environment, the earth. Perhaps we are just foreigners. Really enjoy to read the book, and hoping more coming from the author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cut Price Von Daniken - without the verve. 31 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am sure most people of my generation will remember the first time they read Erich Von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods and how they were momentarily convinced. After all for all his faults, he was able to construct his arguments with a rhetorical verve that was persuasive and his research (even if misleadingly presented) was interesting and was probably many people's first introduction to such phenomanae as the Easter Island statues.

Unfortunately, those great days of Von Daniken and Charles 'Bermuda Triangle' Berlitz are long gone and instead we are left with Dr Ellis Silver - a kind of Lidls to Von Daniken's Harrods. Supposedly a top ecologist, Silver posits that we are a species not native to this earth but have been dumped on here by an alien race as a sort of punishment for something or other

Points he throws up in evidence include

1) We can't look directly at the sun.
2) We tend to get bad backs
3) If you look out of your window, you'll see a lot of miserable people
4) We like fatty foods rather than food that is good for us
5) We get sunburnt

Most of these arguments are of course pretty specious and easily disprovable with just a moments thought (if we are the only species that likes junk food, why have parks now decided to put up warnings to customers not to feed white bread to ducks?) and at times Silver seems to be arguing against himself or losing his thread (trying to find out which planet we came from, he concludes it was one orbiting a binary star but then says "I'm not sure how we could warm at night on such a planet without clothes or fur..Perhaps we burrow underground and huddle together for warmth).

The book is well argued but stretches the realms of believable in many areas. Good tho to provoke the mind.
