Australian physicist found in human DNA message from aliens

UFOs and little green men have always been the prerogative of the UFO, but recently became addicted to their search and serious scholars. Respected scientific journal New Scientist published an article the other day famous Australian physicist and astrobiologist Davis, who expresses the paradoxical hypothesis that information about extraterrestrial beings stored in … the human genome.

The impetus for such an unexpected hypothesis was a study conducted by the National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley, California. American geneticists have found in the human DNA chain genes whose function has not yet been established. Given that human cells are "small and cheap reproducing machines that can store and copy the information for a long time, despite the conditions of the environment," a highly technically civilization could well leave them a message for us. Such a path would be much more efficient than traditional radio messages, which for half a century to no avail looking for specially created for this purpose the organization SETI. "The only problem — find the secret code by which this message can be deciphered," — says the scientist.

Russian geneticists, however, is the statement by Davis quite skeptical. As explained by the columnist of "New News" a senior researcher at the laboratory analysis of the genome of the Institute of General Genetics, Russian Academy of Sciences Vavilov, Ph.D. Svetlana Borinskaya in human DNA does have a silent genes. A few years ago they were called "junk." It was believed that they are inactive, but since then, scientists have revised their views on the issue.

"We have managed to find out what genes are not involved in protein synthesis, perform regulatory functions, determining when he should join a particular gene, in which part of the body it will work — says Svetlana Borinskaya. — Yes, and the assumption of alien origin of human DNA, which follows from the hypothesis of Davis does not stand up to scrutiny. Life on Earth was born 3.8 billion years ago, it was then coded all the basic genetic information. Why it had to deal with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations, and not nature — is unclear. Of course, we still do not know very much about the origin of life on Earth, but that's no reason to write off the natural processes of the intervention of higher powers. "
