The online Canadian National newspaper
recently began publishing a series of articles reporting the
scientific discovery of extraterrestrial genes in human DNA.
There is much evidence to support genetic 'upgrades' of human DNA at
various points in human evolution by extraterrestrials.
This makes it very important to
demarcate between exopolitical research on the historic
extraterrestrial role concerning human DNA, with ongoing scientific
investigations that are part of the Human Genome Project. I
wish to clarify my own role and contribution to such research.
This will remove any possible
misperception that I am part of an exo-scientific research team
the Human Genome Project that might
a Canadian National story published on Monday
A story published on January 8, 2007 concerned
an alleged scientific breakthrough led by
Professor Sam Chang
who was reported to be part of the Human Genome Project. He
reportedly led a team of researchers that established the existence
of extraterrestrial genes in human DNA. These were found to be
embedded within the 97% of the human genome described as junk DNA.
The Jan 8 report excited great interest due to growing scientific
speculation that human DNA may be encoded with extraterrestrial
information. This argument was first proposed by Professor
Paul Davies, from the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at
Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. Prof Davies argument was
published in the New Scientist in
August 2004. He argued that non-coding sequences in human
DNA, i.e., junk DNA, may be in fact extraterrestrial
information or messages.
DNA, the molecule that contains the
script of life, encodes its data in a four-letter alphabet. This
would be an ideal medium for storing a cosmic calling card. In
many organisms, humans included, genes make up only a tiny
fraction of their DNA. Much of the rest seems to be biological
gobbledygook, often called "junk DNA". There is plenty of room
there for ET to etch a molecular message without damaging any
vital genetic functions.
Essentially, junk DNA may be
either an extraterrestrial message and/or parts of
extraterrestrial genetics encoded into human DNA. It is this
latter possibility that Prof Chang's research had demonstrated
according to the Canadian National report.
I have attempted to verify the existence of Prof Chang and his team
of researchers but have so far been unsuccessful. Significantly,
Linda Moulton Howe conducted an interview with Prof John
McPherson, a former Co-Director of the Genome Center,
Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri.
Prof McPherson had no knowledge of Prof
Chang, but acknowledged that the extensive number
of scientists working on the Human Genome Project made it
possible that they had simply not met or yet communicated by email.
Prof McPherson commented that he did not
find the Prof Chang story to be credible. Yet it is very likely that
there is a more classified branch of the Human Genome Project that
involves the location of extraterrestrial genetics which Prof
McPherson and many other Human Genome Project scientists may simply
not be aware of.
While it is possible that Prof Chang works on a more classified area
of the Human Genome Project, it's important to note that I and
others have not been able to verify his existence. It is very likely
that classified research is occurring on extraterrestrial
genetics in the human genome, but we need credible testimonies
to verify this. Consequently, I cannot the verify the accuracy of
the Canadian National's January 8 report concerning Prof Chang's
research findings confirming the discovery of extraterrestrial genes
in human DNA.
Given the lack of verification for Prof Chang's existence and
of a team within the Human Genome Project working on
exobiology, I therefore have to distinguish it from my own
exopolitical research efforts concerning extraterrestrial visitors
to Earth. I also need to distinguish the Human Genome Project
from my collaboration with other researchers interested in
My own exopolitics research efforts analyze the testimony,
credentials and documentation of a number of whistleblowers, 'contactees'
and researchers concerning extraterrestrial visitation and residence
on Earth. My work lies in developing suitable exopolitical research
methods for cases where most physical evidence has been deliberately
removed or tampered with, and/or witnesses intimidated into silence.
My exopolitics work uses
qualitative research methods that are
appropriated from the social sciences.
My exopolitics research should not be confused with scientific
projects associated with the Human Genome Project that use
quantitative research methods in various university departments,
scientific laboratories or corporations. I need to emphasize that I
am a political scientist by training and not an exo-biologist. My
work complements the research goals of those in the Human Genome
Project interested in the origins of human DNA, but does
replicate the strict scientific laboratory protocols occurring in
the Human Genome Project.
At best, my exopolitics research
complements the extraterrestrial DNA research findings reported to
have been made by Prof Chang, whose research team may work
within or be related to a more classified program within the
Human Genome Project.
This takes me to elaborating briefly on the exopolitical view
concerning human DNA being encoded with extraterrestrial genetics.
Many are familiar with the work of
Zecharia Sitchin concerning evidence of genetic
manipulation of a primitive hominoid that created humanity 300,000
years ago using the DNA of extraterrestrials called
the Anunnaki. This is recorded in
Sumerian cuneiform texts which Sitchin has translated.
Dr Arthur Horn, an exo-anthropologist
supports Sitchin's claims and argues that there are several
intervention points in human evolution where he believes
extraterrestrials introduced their own genetics into human DNA. Dr
Horn identifies a number of gaps in "the
Darwinian-anthropological version of primate and human evolution"
and argues that these are most likely places where extraterrestrials
He calls these "ET Inception Group"
interventions and argues they occurred at the following evolutionary
leaps in primate and human evolution.
First, the appearance of
advanced primates 40 million years ago.
Second, the appearance of the
first member of the human biological family in Africa,
Australopithecines or Hominidae [great apes] four
million years ago.
Third, the development of
Homo habilis [handy man] about two and a half million
Fourth, the development of
Homo erectus [upright man] around 1.8 million years ago.
Finally, the development of
Homo sapiens [knowing man] around 300,000 years ago. See
Humanity's Extraterrestrial Origins
Dr Horn's work raises important
questions concerning how many times has this genetic intervention
occurred and how many extraterrestrial civilizations have been
involved in the genetic engineering of Homo Sapiens. A number of
whistleblowers/contactees have pointed to the intervention of
extraterrestrial visitors in human history.
In an online report, I have
discussed literature concerning seventeen extraterrestrial
civilizations that appear to be most significant for modern
This leads to the testimony of
Alex Collier, a contactee who
claims to met with extraterrestrials from Andromeda, that 22
extraterrestrial civilizations have contributed their genetics to
[W]e, as a product of
extraterrestrial genetic manipulation, are possessors of a vast
gene pool consisting of many different racial memory banks, also
consisting of at least 22 different races. Because of our
genetic heritage, and because we are spirit, the benevolent
extraterrestrial races actually view us as being royalty.
A number of researchers have explored
Collier's claims and find him to be credible.
Collier's estimate of 22
civilizations is consistent with the work of Sitchin, Horn
and others who identify different intervention points in human
history where extraterrestrial genes were added to human DNA. It is
Collier's estimate of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations
involved in 'upgrading' human DNA that is alluded to in the
Canadian National story on January 26 which says:
"Collaborative research from a
gathering of exo-scientists postulate that there are genes from
over 20 extraterrestrials civilizations in Human DNA."
The Canadian National later goes
on to say:
Details of findings have been
published in part, by Dr. Michael Salla, who is a learned
scholar on extraterrestrial research. Exo-scientists and other
researchers base their findings, in part, on carefully
collecting data, which includes well corroborated documented
observations by contactees and "whistleblowers", as well as
I wish to clarify that my findings are
published in a variety of online papers and my book,
Exopolitics (2004). Indeed, my
findings are supported by the testimonies of a variety of
whistleblowers and contactees whose claims I view to be credible
based on their credentials, documentation, sincerity and/or reliable
The exopolitics research method that I have
developed ranks different sources of evidence in an
effort to distinguish between the most reliable and least reliable.
My research findings support the idea that extraterrestrials
are currently intervening in human affairs. Genetic
engineering has occurred in humanity's past (and present) where
extraterrestrial genetics has been inserted into human DNA.
Consequently, my research does support the view extraterrestrial
genetics will be found in human DNA, and that the 'junk DNA'
comprising 97% of human DNA is where this will be found. This is
supported by the work of Prof Davies, and what Prof Chang
reportedly confirmed with his team.
The role of junk DNA in the human genome continues to be an
important area of study in the Human Genome Project. The
influence of extraterrestrial genes currently lies outside the
scientific worldview of most researchers associated with the
It is likely that a highly classified
research study into the human genome that seeks to identify
extraterrestrial genetics is occurring. It is possible that
Canadian National report into Prof Chang's research is part of a
controlled leak of information by those wishing to alert the public
to such a program, without providing any verification. Most
researchers in the Human Genome Project would not be aware of
such classified research.
In conclusion, my own research methods and collaboration with other
exopolitical researchers is not in any way associated with the
Human Genome Project or any classified studies associated with
it. The existence of Prof Sam Chang and his team researching
extraterrestrial genetics in human DNA is still to be confirmed.
Nevertheless, I predict that the
Human Genome Project will eventually discover that junk DNA
in fact involves information from extraterrestrial civilizations as
Prof Davies hypothesized. This information was likely a
genetic upgrade responsible for human evolution as critical points
as identified by Dr Arthur Horn.
It is very likely that official
knowledge of extraterrestrial genetics in human DNA will be
released in the future as part of a coordinated political disclosure
concerning extraterrestrial life visiting or residing on Earth.
