According to a new theory, human genetic code is embedded with a "designer label" that may be an indelible stamp of a master extraterrestrial civilisation that preceded us by many millions or billions of years.

Did they leave our planet long ago, this Elder Race who still learn and grow?

Oh for crap's sake, we just managed to get rid of this clown.

Last year as part of an experiment I had my genome sequenced.  Part of the sequence are long sections known as  Noncoding DNA which are sections that do not correspond  to proteins.  My genome had a long section with only two base pairs repeating again and again.  The people I was working with decided to assign the value of zero to the first pair and one to the second pair.  They then broke these into 8 pair segments and converted the binary into hexadecimal.  Turns out the hex code translates in ASCII to "Kilroy was her."

/Have no idea who her is

neongoats: SlothB77: So ... we were created by aliens and a code was embedded in our DNA and that code is passed via inheritance.  So we are storage devices or messengers of this code?  That would be pretty cool.

Maybe we are a distributed computing system. A ridiculously complex, massively parallel, non binary(what would dna be, base 16?), creation. A Beowulf-system of the stars.

Perhaps we are some advanced being's weapon and weather modeling supercomputer.

Or we could be an AI? Self-learning and growing in complexity and intelligence? Though not sure how the GOP and Muslim fundamentalists fit into that theory though. Must have been prematurely released before the testers found those defects in the code.

I keep reading this article over and over and it just keeps making me angrier. The words in it mean nothing, yet those farkers have funding and I don't.

Fano: I still enjoy an episode of the new twilight zone where aliens land and tell the UN that humanity is a failure, and will be wiped out. The leaders beg for another chance, and come up with a plan for world peace, only for the alien ambassador laughing and saying it was because we weren't good enough at war yet.

I haven't seen that one - although I really should catch up on the new ones. I do love the old ones, though. My favorite:
