The Alien Origin

The Alien Origin 

The world-famous anthropologist Harold Wilson clambered up the rocky cliff in anticipation of when and where he would discover exact evidence for his theory of human origin. He had worked on his theory for twenty-five years. He looked at the rocks around him. He noticed one particular rock with a gaping hole in it. He climbed up to the hole. It was cavernous enough for him to be able to stand erect in it.

He stepped into the hole and walked some distance. Somehow, he got a strange feeling he was stepping on bones. After examining the hole in the rock for some time he stepped out and tapped the surface of the rock with his hammer. It sounded hollow. He stepped away from the rock and surveyed it from some distance. Then he realized the obvious with shock. This whole rock was a huge skull. He could make out the shape clearly.

The next day the headlines screamed...

‘Overwhelming evidence has been found in a sub-Saharan desert that contrary to the theory of Darwinian evolution, human beings could have most probably originated from giant sized aliens nearly forty feet tall who arrived on earth in the early Neolithic period...’

  1. That would be a discovery that changed our thinking!

  2. Interesting take on the prompt -- and wow, wouldn't that discovery force a lot of changes to the history books!

  3. Just one step away from those who believe Aliens are responsible for all advancement on Earth. Who knows, it could be true. Nice Job Jai.
