Panspermia – a natural process or intentional action of extraterrestrials?

Panspermia (from ancient Greek πᾶν (pan) – everything and σπέρμα (sperm) – semen) is the hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe and is spread by cosmic dust, meteoroids, asteroids, comets and asteroids, as well as spacecraft carrying unintended microbial contamination, known as directed panspermia. The theory states that life did not originate on Earth, but evolved elsewhere and seeded life as we know it.

According to many scientists, it is impossible for life to develop from inorganic matter, and thus to create biological organisms. For this to happen, external intervention is needed, providing organic forms from outside the planet where such forms do not yet exist, and appropriate conditions for their development.

Scientists’ research has shown that the transport of some primitive, biological forms of life via celestial bodies through space is not impossible and gives rise to the fact that this is how life also reached our planet Earth.

The theory of Panspermia was initiated by the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras, and similar hypotheses were put forward by, among others, J.J. Berzelius in 1834, W. Thomson in 1871 and Svante Arrhenius in 1908.

A type of panspermia is Directed Panspermia – it is the deliberate transport of microorganisms into space in order to use them as species introduced to other astronomical objects. Shklovskii and Sagan in 1966 and Crick and Orgel in 1973 hypothesized that life on Earth may have been deliberately seeded by other civilizations.

Litopapanspermia is a transport mechanism theorized following the discovery of exoplanets and the sudden availability of data due to the development of planetary science. Lithopanspermia is the proposed transfer of organisms in rocks from one planet to another via planetary objects such as comets or asteroids, and remains a matter of speculation. A variant would be for organisms to travel between star systems on nomadic exoplanets or exomoons.

Radiopanspermia – In 1903, Svante Arrhenius proposed radiopanspermia, the theory that individual microscopic life forms could spread through space under the influence of stellar radiation pressure. This is the mechanism by which light can exert force on matter. Arrhenius argued that particles with a critical size below 1.5 μm would be accelerated at high speed by the star’s radiation pressure. Its effectiveness decreases as the particle size increases, this mechanism applies only to very small particles, such as single bacterial spores.

Taking into account the creation process in the Book of Genesis, written theoretically by Moses, who could not have been present during the creation process, the question arises who created plants, animals and homo sapiens?

Genesis 1:11,20,24,26:

11 And he (God) said: let the earth bring forth green herb, and such as may seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after its kind, which may have seed in itself upon the earth. And it was so done.
20 God also said: let the waters bring forth the creeping creature having life, and the fowl
that may fly over the earth under the firmament of heaven.
24 And God said: Let the earth bring forth the living creature in its kind, cattle and creeping things, and beasts of the earth, according to their kinds. And it was so done.
26 And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth.

If we are the result of intentional genetic manipulation and millions of years ago our earth was “pollinated” with alien “seed” of life in the process of panspermia, then today’s question is: did it happen naturally or did someone help us with it?
