The Aliens Did Not Put Us Here!

A popular fringe theory holds that humans are alien’s gift to Earth. Some people say we were delivered here during a near pass to Earth of a life-bearing planet called Nibiru. This alleged planet, which has not actually been observed by astronomers, is said to skirt the edges of the solar system and swing inward from time to time. [A Field Guide to Alien Planets]

“I get emails every week saying that Homo sapiens are the result of alien intervention,” Shostak said. “I’m not sure why aliens would be interested in producing us.  I think people like to think we’re special.
