The Bible says that we are created in the image of God, and that God came from the heavens above us, so ,to me, the idea that we have been modified by an "alien" from the stars somewhere, seems altogether possible. It makes as much sense to me as the idea that we evolved from amoebas , who became monkeys, who then became men.
Most of the animals that exist today, where you see a significant modification in their looks, the change comes from human intervention in breeding. We have taken what started as wild cattle, and now have select breeds that are proficient in giving milk, and ones that are bred for meat as food. And look at the Poodle, just as an example, what was once a full sized fuzzy sheep dog, now comes in all sizes from 2 lbs to 50 lbs, and in about every color combination.
Here is my point : even though we have developed all these specialized animal breeds, the original still exists. They have not evolved on their own. So, monkeys still exist, they have not evolved on their own.
Hence, I believe that we had some help evolving from some sort of primitive man, into the intelligent and diversified humans that we are today. Whether through selective breeding, or through inbreeding with a similar species , is the question of the day.
