Are Octopuses an Extraterrestrial Species that Came to Earth Millions of Years Ago?:

The researchers note that octopuses appear to have
suddenly diverged genetically from their ancestors, making a sudden “great leap
forward” – “its large brain and sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes,
flexible bodies, instantaneous camouflage via the ability to switch color and
shape are just a few of the striking features that appear suddenly on the
evolutionary scene.” After discussing some of the genetic data, the researchers
then suggest that these genetic ‘jumps’ “seem to be borrowed from a far distant
“future” in terms of terrestrial evolution, or more realistically from the
cosmos at large.” But they’re not just talking about a virus traveling to Earth
from space – they instead, amazingly, suggest the possibility “that
cryopreserved Squid and/or Octopus eggs, arrived in icy bolides several hundred
million years ago should not be discounted as that would be a parsimonious
cosmic explanation for the Octopus’ sudden emergence on Earth ca. 270 million
years ago.”

Yes, you heard that right: 33 scientists wrote a paper in
which they suggest that octopuses might be aliens.
