Men Are From Mars, Women Are From... Well... Mars Too

Humans May Actually be of Martian Origin Says New StudyHumans May Actually be of Martian Origin Says New Study

Have you ever met someone who was so weird, you thought they were from another planet? Well, you may be right; but, you, too, may also be from another planet-Mars. Steven Benner, a scientist at the Westheimer Institute of Science and Technology says that human beings may actually be of Martian origin. Benner recently gave a speech at a conference for geoscientists, and explained that he thinks the human race sprang up from elements found on Mars, including the element molybdenum, which was not found on early earth. This element may be necessary for beginning human life and was available on Mars’ surface. "In addition," Benner says, "recent studies show that these conditions, suitable for the origin of life, may still exist on Mars." Benner also presented evidence from a new study he just completed to support his hypothesis.

"The evidence seems to be building that we are actually Martians; that life started on Mars and came to Earth on a rock," he says. "It's lucky that we ended up here, as certainly Earth has been the better of the two planets for sustaining life If our hypothetical Martian ancestors had remained on Mars, there might not have been a story to tell."

Benner says a meteorite traveled from Mars to Earth, and could have been the springboard that began all human life. The meteorite could have arrived on Earth because of a collision or a volcano which could have propelled it through space. Scientists know that to be a definite possibility since there are at least 100 other meteorites that exist on Earth now which are thought to be of Martian origin.
