‘ALIEN’ DNA discovered in 400,000-year-old human bone baffles scientists!!
There is no convincing evidence of how humans appeared on Earth. Science has come up with some theories about human origins, but not everyone likes them. There are several experts who support the A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ astronaut theory, which is widely acclaimed by people all over the world. In 2013, scientists discovered the oldest evidence of human DNA from a 400,000-year-old thigh bone. Rather than solving human history on planet Earth, it deepened the mystery leaving scientists baffled.
The origins of our ancestors can be revealed by the discovery of 400,000-year-old human remains in the Sima de los Huesos (Spanish for “pit of bones”), a cavern 43 feet below the surface of northern Spain. Although the bone is human, it has “ALIEN DNA”. This startling discovery has scientists reevaluating everything they believe to be true about human evolution.
The A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ bones for which genetic material was discovered in Spain were attributed to Neanderthals, but Denisovans, a different A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ human group from Siberia, have a strikingly similar genetic profile.
Since its discovery in the 1970s, the Poço dos Ossos and the bones it contains have been the subject of extensive research. The bones of 28 A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ people tentatively identified as Homo heidelbergensis dating back hundreds of thousands of years have been discovered so far. Due to their size and shape, the 400,000-year-old bones were initially thought to belong to Neanderthals, an extinct species of A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ hominid that was on a different branch of the evolutionary tree from our ancestors.

DNA extracted from these prehistoric bones suggests that there may have been many more A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ human species than previously believed. Another hypothesis is that these unidentified individuals discovered in the Poço dos Ossos were common ancestors of Neanderthals and Denisovans. Mitochondrial DNA may have disappeared from Neanderthals at some point, but it persisted in Denisovans, according to the study authors.
“Now we have to rethink the whole story,” said Juan Luis Arsuaga, a paleoanthropologist at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and co-author of the paper. He doubted that Denisovans were scattered across much of the Old World, from Spain to Siberia, masquerading as Neanderthals.

Methods for recovering DNA fragments were invented by Svante Paabo of the Max Planck Institute and his colleagues, who published a snippet of DNA from a 40,000-year-old Neanderthal fossil in 1997. After their first success, they and other researchers expanded by looking for DNA from other Neanderthals.
In 2006, a team of French and Belgian researchers obtained a 100,000-year-old Neanderthal DNA fragment that, until its 2013 discovery, held the record for the oldest human DNA ever found. The earlier revelation helped provide insight into how Neanderthals and humans diverged hundreds of thousands of years ago from a common ancestor. Furthermore, it demonstrated that around 50,000 years ago, humans and Neanderthals interbred.
Further research revealed that 1% of the Denisovan genome originated from a different, mysterious relative that experts called the “superchaic human”. According to estimates, some modern humans may possess 15% of these “super-archaic” genetic regions. This study establishes a close relationship between the Sima de los Huesos people and Neanderthals, Denisovans, and an unidentified population of early humans. So who was this unidentified ancestor of humans?
Homo erectus, an extinct ancestor of modern humans that lived in Africa about a million years ago, may be an unidentified ancestor. The problem is, we’ve never discovered any H. erectus DNA, so at this point the best we can do is speculate.
In 2018, scientists published their findings on “dark matter” DNA, which are long, winding strands of DNA with no obvious functions but are identical in all vertebrates, from humans to mice to chickens. Before, scientists used to think that less than 2% of our DNA actually codes for humans and the remaining 98.5% of DNA sequences are so-called “junk DNA” which is useless.
Although science is still evolving and trying to understand the purpose of our DNA, some studies seem to show that intracellular environmental and energetic influences can alter DNA. In biology, epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in the phenotype that do not involve changes in the DNA sequence.
However, some theorists have come up with some extremely intriguing ideas. The so-called 97% non-coding sequences in human DNA, according to this argument, are nothing less than the genetic code for e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ life forms. According to them, some form of highly developed e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ race deliberately altered human DNA in the distant past and the unidentified “super-archaic” ancestor of the Sima de los Huesos people may serve as proof of this induced development.
There are numerous A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ carvings that resemble the DNA double helix motif, which has led theorists to speculate that our DNA was modified in the distant past. An interesting idea is the concept of the “third eye” that the A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ cultures knew. The speculative invisible eye usually described as located in the pituitary gland of the brain is believed to provide perception beyond ordinary sight. The symbols of the pine cone-shaped glands appear linked to strange beings that seem to be carrying out some alteration in the “Tree of Life”. For some, the tree seems to symbolize human DNA and vertebrae.
The tree of knowledge, connecting heaven and the underworld, and the tree of life, connecting all forms of creation are both forms of the world tree or cosmic tree and are portrayed in various religions and philosophies as the same tree.
In Mesopotamia A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳, the Assyrian tree of life was represented by a series of intersecting nodes and lines. There are no definitive answers to this symbol. But according to A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ literature, for example in the Epic of Gilgamesh, there is a quest for immortality. King Etana is also looking for a “birth plant” to give him a son. This one has a solid provenance from antiquity found on Akkad cylinder seals.
Do all these points suggest the presence of advanced knowledge used by A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ beings to alter the structure of DNA? It sounds far-fetched, but scientists today seem to be reaching similar conclusions. It cannot be denied that very little is known about the vast majority of DNA.
