In the beginning...reverse evolution.

Just some thoughts I had today, the like of which seem to be enjoyed on this forum:

I was debating in my thoughts just now why it might be that the original hebrew Genesis begins by naming god as 'elohim', which I understand to be a female plural and a word with strong associations with 'coming from the sky'.

The commentary that we evolve from apes does not appear to be definitively demonstrated. It may simply be that we share common ancestors and that they sit on another path. Another question is, could earth-like apes have evolved, in a 'negative' sense, from extraterrestrials of a more advanced nature, but 'devolution' needed to occur to make the species more robust to living on earth, possibly by integrating genetically with the native species. [Clearly, capacity for genetic engineering preceedes the capacity for inter-stellar travel, at least as shown in the technological development of our species.]

That is, if a more 'advanced' species arrives in a hostile environment and starts dying out, then those that survive might well be the more primitive variants of a more sophisticated original, or are genetically engineered to be so (with several different variants of varying remaining sophistication so as to see which ones last). Also, an advanced civilisation like that will be more advanced in being able to recycle, so there's no reason to have left any artefacts in one piece. Maybe systems are designed in the future [viz., 'were designed in the past'!] to automatically recycle themselves, hence no evidence of this history remains, and/or there were considered to be good reasons not to leave behind any hints of this 'legacy' so as to permit a new and refreshed species to develop without it trying to 're-learn' the bad habits of the past.

[Maybe this all happened 65 million years ago, and to start off with the dominant lizard species (which seem more suited to widespread terrestrial living that soft, warm, squidgy mammals) had to be killed off. Or maybe that was just a prelude to a later arrival - you'd want to kill off hazardous species before you get to a planet so as to give it a chance to kill them all and condition the planet to your own conditions, than after you've arrived.]
