History tells us that Copernicus (l6h century) was the first to offer a computational model of the universe which presented the sun, not the earth, as the center of the solar system. Later Galileo proposed and refined this same theory and was called to account by the Church authorities, who clung to the old Ptolemaic view that the earth was the center of the universe, as the Bible appeared to claim.
Oddly, in the Rig Veda the following observation is presented:
Rig Veda 10.22.14
“This earth is devoid of hands and legs, yet it moves ahead. All the objects over the earth also move with it. It moves around the sun."
The Rig Veda was composed in India approximately 1500-1200 BCE. One wonders how the "rishis" received such information, since they lacked telescopes or computational equipment to discover such knowledge. The ancients felt that such information came from the gods (alien visitors?) One also wonders if modern scientists and historians are aware that these early people knew what was only discovered by Europeans many centuries later.
Recently I watched a television show which asserted that recent analyses of ancient meteorites revealed that certain components necessary to the emergence of life were contained in these materials from outer space. Thus one would conclude that this is how life began on earth, since these "seeds" were received early on. This discovery seems to settle the long standing argument as to how life on earth came to be. In other words, we are, in fact, all from another "planetary"or outer space source, just as many claim today.
