Anyone else a ancient astronaut theorist?

I'm of the belief that we are most likely the product of genetic engineering of ancient astronauts (Ancient Aliens). Anyone else into ancient astronaut theory?

I have always been interested in the idea.  Erich von Däniken often gets dismissed by mainstream scientists simply because some of the examples, that he suggested may be evidence of ET intervention, have more probable terrestrial explanations.  There is no doubt, for instance, that Ancient Egyptians were able to build their monuments without the help of ETs.  However, the hypothesis that we have been visited in the past is not stupid, regardless of whether it is correct.  Unfortunately, because of the popularity of the subject, it is drowned in the wild speculations of tabloid journalists.

In my early teens, I was intrigued by maps in Colliers Encycopedia that showed how a new race, which I think the maps called late mongoloid, emerged out of what I think they called early mongoloid.  The terms have probably changed since then.  In the article, early mongoloid meant e.g. Native Americans and late mongoloid meant e.g. modern Chinese.  However, although what they called late mongoloid people were presumed to be descendants of early  mongoloid people, it did NOT mean that the late mongoloid peoples were in any way superior to the early mongoloid peoples.  By coincidence, not very long after being interested by that article, I read The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham.  In that novel, there is a suggestion that the advent of late mongoloid people was the result of intervention by ETs.

The Ancient Astronauts hypothesis was popularised but not invented by von Däniken.  In some of his stories, H P Lovecraft suggested that ETs had settlements on Earth long before humans existed, and that all life on this planet is the result of their experiments, as well as evolution that took place while the aliens were away or, more typically, slumbered while waiting for Earth's environment to become inhabitable for them again.

Could be. Who knows. We don’t have the tech and data to prove or disprove it yet.

It's a fair bet plenty of material has fallen from space and hit the Earth during its time, some of it may have contributed chemically to the formation of life.

There are myths and ancient tales that point to this theory with compelling evidence.  The thought of extraterrestrials existing has even been considered by the Pope.

Unfortunately the pope seems to have a problem with the existence of us.

The ancient astronaut hypothesis has always been super interesting to me. It's fun to think about, but that's all I can really say on the matter. Abiogenesis and natural selection work just fine without having to invoke extraterrestrial intervention.
