A short story

Somewhere in a dark corner of the (a?) vast universe, was a little planet, just like our Earth. In that planet was a little civilization.

The people of the planet, through their ages, advanced enough in their knowledge of the sciences to build spacecrafts capable of traveling at several times the speed of light. This triggered in them exciting thoughts of exploring the universe

However, there are one problem. They didn't have enough people on their planet to cover the whole universe, or even a small part of it. So, to get the most bang for their buck, they did this: They split up into teams of one person each, and each one would take an independent direction, and report on their findings.

There was one more problem though. The distance they would require to travel would take entire lifetimes, and a person who once set out, was not expected to return back ever.

Among the explorers, was one person named Adam, and he discovered Earth. Seeing that it could possibly support life, he landed on Earth and witnessed vast amounts of land and resources. He liked it there so much that he decided to settle down there for the rest of his life.

Using advanced cloning technology, he made Eve for himself, and all the animals and plants, making genes capable of customizing themselves according to their environment. In fact, he altered himself to adapt to Earth's environment

And thus, the world as we know it, was born.


  1. If you add a() creator(s) of the universe(s) to the story then you'd have a very marketable religion. Of course, it wouldn't top our religion, but we welcome a little competition. It keeps our Sages and clergy on their toes.

  2. CT-aren't there people who already believe this, that our ancestors were in fact space travelers from another planet?

  3. @Sage: Welcome your humor.
    @np: I first heard it from my grandpa. I actually asked him, "where does the life originate from" and he said, "from the skies". That was an acceptable answer -- at that time
    But what's truly mind bending, is of course, the origin of the first life

  5. This is an amusing version of the start of life on this mudball. Just the sort of thing a grandfather(I'm one) could tell his grandson on the front porch on a summer night.
