Mythology’s Hybrids: Human Imagination Or Alien Genetics?

Alien GeneticsMythology’s Hybrids: Human Imagination Or Alien Genetics?

By John Prytz

There are many puzzling features in mythology, if taken as purely mythology, regarding the so-called gods. I say so-called because to my way of interpreting things, the gods weren’t mythological but flesh-and-blood extraterrestrials with advanced technology, especially in the field of bioengineering or genetic engineering. A puzzling feature regarding the ‘gods’ and related tales, or even tails, are the half-and-halves (my phrase – you probably won’t find it lasted in any index in any mythology text). But these half-and-halves, for example there were the Centaurs, Cupid (or Eros), the Harpies, Mermaids or Mermen, the Minotaur, Satyrs, Sirens, the Sphinx, the Chimera, Dragons, the Gryphon (or Griffin – alt spelling), the Hydra, Pegasus and the Questing Beast, are just scratching the surface of the sum total of those represented in our ancient mythologies.

The interesting point is that these hybrids are universal within that collective mythology. That is, they appear across all cultures; all geographies. Anytime something supposedly mythological, is represented everywhere, it’s time to sit up and take closer notice that things might not be quite as mythological as things first appear.

Where’s the body-on-the-slab-in-the-lab evidence? With no fossil evidence of any such hybrids, perhaps this is where mythology overrides reality. Perhaps it is just a natural pondering to wonder ‘what if’ human abilities could be combined with some other animal’s abilities; or what a composite of one animal’s body parts attached to another animal’s body parts might achieve.

But then again, maybe that’s not the case.

Now clearly, a lot of people, our ancestors, went to a lot of valuable time and effort to create or depict in often quite considerable detail all over the world, the who’s who, and what’s what, in tens of thousands of paintings, literature, statues, figurines, murals, monuments, carvings, pictograms, hieroglyphs, etc. to what we (their descendents) would call nonsense – purely imaginary entities. But I maintain our ancestors would not go to extraordinary lengths to devote precious resources into making images of beings they knew to be imaginary. Translated, they believed with all their hearts and souls that these beasties, globally numbering in the multi-hundreds, whether ‘gods’ in various combination’s or lesser mortals (human-animal) or purely animal-animal forms, really existed. Multiply that by more multi-hundreds of ‘normal’ mythological characters that have been honored with thousands of monuments, and well there’s apparently a whole ancient expensive and often backbreaking industry devoted to what again, we superior modern descendants of theirs, believe to be nothing at all.

As an exact parallel, ‘modern’ human have built and erected all manner of monuments, memorials and statutes to really real historical people. Many are on display in all manner of public parks for the pigeons to rest their weary wings on.

Then again, in our modern era, nobody designs and builds cathedrals just to provide work for the construction industry, but rather because the relevant powers-that-be, the instigators and designers and fundraisers of cathedrals firmly believe there is a being who deserves such monuments to be built in his honor. Now the fact that being probably doesn’t exist, at least as a supernatural creator deity, but rather just one of many of an advanced race of extraterrestrials is irrelevant. You build the cathedral because you believe that being exists – full stop. Atheists don’t build cathedrals. Okay, our smart-as-we-are ancestors believed the half-and-halves really existed.

Now that we’ve seen some of the puzzling anatomical features associated with the half-and-halves, beasties that are composites of two or more terrestrial life forms, here’s a hard as solid rock case study that not only illustrates time and effort but might highlight why human imagination is not at work. There’s a very large life-size statue from ancient Assyria housed in the British Museum of a winged, human-headed bull (probably representing Shedu or Lamassu). That would be odd enough, but in this statue of a bull with wings and a human head, you find that the bull is depicted with five legs (please note I can count up to five!). Now, if you were to design from scratch a mythological beastie, one thing I’m pretty convinced of is that you would NOT give it five legs! So, I ask instead, is this statue a representation of one of the ‘gods’ genetic experiments?

Now before pursuing that tack, we’re all aware of the various plants and animals we’ve artificially selected for via breeding pairs of organisms that have the sorts of characteristics we desire such as leading to faster horses; disease resistant wheat, cuter puppy dogs, etc. Sometimes we interfere at the cellular level to increase the pace of the changes we want. We’ve all heard of genetically modified food or genetically modified organisms; of DNA from one species being spliced onto the DNA of another species. We’ve heard of harvesting animal tissues and organs for transplantation into humans. We’ve come into the era of the designer baby, or at least prospective parents undergo genetic counselling and testing before having children. Having children is no longer hit or miss and take your chances. And it won’t be long before babies will be made-to-order if the parents so wish.

Now imagine the genetic tricks a highly advanced, if somewhat amoral race of ET’s were to use terrestrial stock to further their genetic research and agenda. Even several hundred, far less thousands of years in advance technologically of us could produce the half-and-halves of our mythologies.

So, were the half-and-halves of our mythologies evidence of genetic and bioengineering experiments by the ‘gods’, the ‘gods’ own version of “The Island of Dr Moreau?” If these hybrids are not the wild imaginations of our ancestors, and standard Darwinian natural selection cannot adequately account for them, then it’s clear an alternative artificial selection mechanism must be contemplated instead. What on Earth (or off Earth) could be the driving force behind such artificial selection – behind the required bioengineering or genetic engineering required? Well, unless your best guess is better than my best guess, ET, that’s who.

Scientific viewpoint of how modern man was a genetic manipulation by an alien race of beings to function as slave workers.

But then it all ceased to be; then they all went away, either literally (as I suspect) or within the human imagination (and if so, why?).

One thing I’m convinced cannot adequately for the massive range of our mythological hybrids are fossils. Fossils cannot explain the half-and-halves. There aren’t going to be too many buried skeletons of a lion minus its head that just happens to have a human skull in the immediate vicinity to explain the Sphinx. And what about the odds of finding the skull of a falcon minus body that just happens to rest next to a headless human skeleton and thus explain several of the Egyptian ‘gods’?

Now clearly some of these half-and-halves beasties are going to ultimately prove to be mythical – figments of the human imagination invented for reasons now lost and buried by the sands of time. Some cases are probably of real beasties we all know today but embellished for reason or reasons unknown and probably unknowable. There’s going to be cases of linguistic misinterpretations or misunderstandings or errors in translations. Then too there’s going to be cases of someone who told someone who told someone who told someone who told someone over many miles and probably generations before the tale was written down. The 20th generation retelling of an ‘eyewitness’ account explains some of the half-and-halves.

But are the mythological half-and-halves all really products of pure human imagination and embellishments and 20th generation retellings? If that be the case, why are there no more recent equivalents, in the multi-hundreds, in our ‘modern’ (say within the last 300 years of fictional literature, later films and TV) apart from those taken directly from our mythological ancient history like Mermaids? Nearly all ‘modern’ literature’s creations are human (Sherlock Holmes, James Bond, Harry Potter, and Captain Kirk as examples – even if they do come from another planet like Superman or Mr. Spock). The Creature from the Black Lagoon was humanoid; ditto the Wolfman who at no time was represented as being a wolf’s head on a human body or vice versa. Frankenstein’s Monster was still human, even if patched together. Dracula may have been able to shape-shift into a bat, but he never was actually half-human and half-bat – ditto Batman. Even Donald Duck was still a duck; Mickey Mouse was just a clothed talking mouse. Some of the Egyptian gods were represented as half-and-halves, but The Mummy wasn’t! So, if all is assumed to be human imagination, then there’s this discrepancy between way back then and recent history. The one obvious ‘modern’ exception is the well known novel “Island of Dr. Moreau.”

The “Island of Dr. Moreau” was originally a novel published in 1896 by H.G. Wells with film adaptations in 1933 (as the “Island of Lost Souls”), 1977, and 1996. It basically deals with vivisection and an obsessed scientist who conducts profane experiments in evolution, eventually establishing himself as the self-styled demigod to a race of mutated, half-human abominations. This all takes place on a remote island, the inhabitants being those experimental animals being turned into strange looking humans by one Dr. Moreau – the obsessed mad scientist in question. I’m just substituting the ancient ‘gods’ for the more modern Dr. Moreau; the so-called mythological half-and-halves for those modern fictional experimental animals turned into abominations.

That ‘modern’ novel aside, you may think the ancient mythological menagerie – if entirely imaginary – exhibits quite an intense range of the human imagination in the creation of half-and-halves. I’d beg to differ. There’s an immense array of potential half-and-halves possibilities that apparently have never been realized, or at least popularized. The whole plant and invertebrate communities have largely been ignored, which may make sense from the biological reality of a genetic engineering standpoint. I do realize that Hollywood has rectified this with several versions and sequels to “The Fly” and B-Grade films like “The Wasp Woman”, and probably several other B-Graders in that vein. But 1) those cinema features were relative rarities in terms of modern half-and-halves images and 2) there was never any possibility of mistaking those films for anything else other than social commentary and/or entertainment, just like the novel by H.G. Wells.

Anyway, as to what might have been imagined by our ancient ancestors, but never really was, though I do seem to recall a mythological human head on an octopus body, but that was about it when it came to the invertebrate and plant kingdoms – no lobster heads on a human body; no human heads on a slug; and as for humanoid rose bushes – forget it!

However, when talking real modern half-and-halves, one would be remiss not to mention Mothman, a winged hominoid with glowing red eyes, associated with the Point Pleasant area of West Virginia around the period of November 1966 through December 1967. Mothman’s been the subject of several books, dozens of articles, and at least one motion picture (“The Mothman Prophecies” – 2002). However, there have been no sightings since. Perhaps Mothman’s a purely imaginary half-and-halves case, one never before or after seen. Maybe.

Finally, there might be a really real modern version of the ‘gods’ and their half-and-halves. If UFO / alien abductions are to be believed, taken at face value, (somewhat backed up and supported by animal mutilation cases), then the alien ‘gods’ – collective now called the ‘Greys’ – are still manipulating human genetics and further progressing with the evolution via artificial selection (breeding) of the human species, as well as their own, for the apparent objective is nothing less than a human-alien (or human-grey) hybrid. That this is implausible, well, recall from mythologies around the world those human-animal hybrids like the Satyr, Sphinx, Minotaur, Mermaid, and a host of others.

Hybrid Species Modification On Human Beings

HybridsHybrid Species Modification On Human Beings

By Lance Winslow

Scientists have always considered the possibility of modifying the human species. Some of these scientists wish to do it for very noble, while others for dastardly reasons. There are even researchers who want to do it just for kicks to see if they can make a bizarre blended or new species using gene and DNA modification..

Some UFO researchers such as Budd Hopkins and others have concluded that aliens are colonizing planet earth by abducting humans and altering their genetic code using sophisticated medical procedures thus creating a hybrid or transgenic being. This silent invasion hypothesis may soon be able to be detected by analysis of rapidly advancing genetic profiling technologies and whole genome DNA sequencing.

Some humanists are completely appalled, while others are so concerned that they have started groups, with lawyers and lobbyists to prevent these things. In Taiwan some scientists have mingled DNA of a jellyfish with a pig now. They merged genetic material from the jellyfish into the pig embryo and have come out with a transparent, greenish and glow in the darkish pig.

Of course the Taiwanese scientists who have bred fluorescent pigs, believe that it is only a matter of time until we make glow in the dark human “Alien” like people. The pigs are transgenic and translucent. Many decry such actions, yet the stem cell research field is moving ahead and such studies will help us in studying human diseases.

What else do these pigs have to offer? Are they smarter or better endowed in another way? No, researchers say that they are no different than an average pig, except for the translucent glow in the dark and green colored features. Some say next they will do this to dogs too and people will be ordering colorful animals too. Oh no, I can hear PETA now? Think on this in 2006.

The Alien Agenda

OuterspaceThe Alien Agenda

By Patrick Bolling

As alien abduction stories accumulate, more and more victims describe experiences where they have had reproductive materials removed and utilized by their abductors to perform genetic experimentation. Artificial inseminations have been reported where strange children are produced with both human and alien characteristics. Men report have seminal fluid extracted, and women report having eggs extracted or being used as a host to fertilize embryos.

Like so many human geneticists who work with the genes of animals, there appears to be a physiological exploitation of our species by another race of beings. Babies have been reported to have been implanted in females and then later removed. One female abductee reports being shown a baby that carried a striking family resemblance to her current grand children. She requested that she be able to keep the child but was informed that it could not survive in Earth’s atmosphere.

All of this genetic manipulation points to the possibility that there is an alien agenda that is being kept secret from us as a planetary society. Some feel that the agenda may be benign, but others take a more alarmed stance on the issue. The evidence pointing to the genetic manipulation of both species in order to create a hybrid race, that can live on our planet unaided, creates fear of invasion and subjugation in the minds of abductees and ufologists alike.

The evidence for an ongoing alien hybrid invasion on planet earth as described by Dr. David Jacobs. Dr. Jacob’s research indicates that the aliens are populating our society with alien hybrids that look just like us.

Yet, even though there exists strong evidence of extraterrestrial life, the reality of such secret government projects as MK Ultra, which was declassified by the Freedom of Information Act, prove that the government is quite willing to perform brutal and cruel experimentation on U.S. citizens. Whitley Strieber even states that he is not certain if he was abducted by aliens or some sort of human based operation. Such realizations force one to investigate the secret government as a source of these experiments rather than blindly believing that they are alien. If the shadow government could secretly perform cruel experiments on humans in the 1960′s, then they could very well be capable of much worse atrocities today.

Do Alien-Human Hybrids Exist?

Human HybridDo Alien-Human Hybrids Exist?

By Chris Patrick

Well, the simple answer is no, as we have no proof of them, and science gives us assurance that it would be hard to hybridize to separate species. However, a few things of note must be remembered before we can fully discount a Hybrid Theory.

Firstly, however, some assumptions should be made. We must assume that the Alien Race evolved on a world remarkably similar to ours. Indeed, it would seem logical, that planets similar to Terra are the only ones life might evolve on; at least until we find evidence that life develops on other planetary types.

While we might assume that a planet might have a highly divergent evolution, due to any number of astronomical phenomenon, we can assume that planets such as ours would have similar defenses as ours. If only because life might be much less likely to develop, say, if there isn’t some atmosphere to serve for breathing, a moon or two to energize tidal forces, or a thick enough atmosphere to protect against small meteorites.

Overview of Sumerian civilization and the theory of mankind’s creation as a hybrid worker for an alien race known as the Annunaki. Offspring were called Nephilim.  Sumerian texts were  interpreted by Zecharia Sitchin.

I think the safest assumption is that our planet is the common archetype for the rarity that is habitable planets, as we define them (and until we discover different kinds; the only archetype).

I would say that there is plausible argument that evolution on one planet would be incredibly similar to ours, as its similarities to our own planet increase. So much to say that a planet much like Earth, may end up having creatures very similar to Earth’s own. This isn’t wishful thinking, but rather logical.

But why? Let’s take the case of asexual bacteria at the formation of life itself. On planet Earth; the mutation for asexual reproduction became the standard for small organisms, as it allowed them to reproduce and change quite rapidly. I would hold that this would be true on similar planets, and that such a fundamental evolutionary trait might be truly superior given any environment, for an organism so small.

Why would Planet X have bacteria that reproduce sexually; when all it takes is one or two asexual bacteria to come along and out compete them for resources? When you argue that this happens on Earth, and nowhere else, you actually make a point for Earth being quite the unique case.

I think if you follow this line of thinking to its logical conclusions, you will find that on a Planet, orbiting a Yellow Star, with three phases of water, protected from Jovian Giants because of other gravitational forces…I think you will find that the Planet’s size will be similar to ours, and the type of life that teems will be very similar to our own. While there might be quite a few differences aesthetically, I think that the fundamental traits that are superior will show themselves to be, while the fundamental traits that are inferior, will do the same. The right collection of these fundamentally superior and inferior traits might combine together to make a creature not weak enough to die, yet not strong enough to thrive, and with the eventual capacity for tool use. I wouldn’t be surprised if this came from some sort of primate-like creature.

In the end, while I fully believe alien life will be vastly different from us, creatures created on planets similar to our own will be remarkably similar. I think the true question is not dealing with creatures so different…but what we will do when we find creatures so similar.

I’d love to hear your theories on Hybrids. Below, in my resource box, you will find a link to my site, to include an email for posting your own Hybrid theory. I hope to hear from you!
