This stuff blows my mind.
 
There are approximately 8.7 million different species of life on Earth. How did that happen, how did that incredible amount of diverse 'life' end up on a very small Planet, how are each biologically engineered to absolute near perfection???
 
If this 'life' all came from meteorite strikes after the earth's creation, then where did these countless meteorites originate from, and how did they all find their way to this tiny lump of rock in space??
 
As a species have we reached the end of our evolution, or will we evolve further into something unrecognisable to what we are now???

To cut a long story short, meteorites are fragments of asteroids, planets and comets, all a result of the big bang.
Most meteorites head this way from the Asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, due to impacting one another, then Jupiters gravity has an effect and sends them off on a tour, that tour can take millions of years before they hit earth. All are now from within our solar system.

In the grand scheme of things nature works quite quickly. It was only 3 million years ago we resembled apes. 3 million years is a blink of the eye in our universe. To be honest I don't think the human race will be around in 3 million years so how far we actually morph into whatever nature has in store for us is anyone's guess.
 
I would imagine though as machinery, transport, robots etc do more of the manual labour for us nature will take its course and we'll resemble something different in the future.
 
I don't think nature always gets it right though. Women struggle with birth much more than most animals on the planet which is apparently due to babies heads becoming bigger to fit our (modern) larger brains in and the birth canal narrowing to accommodate us walking upright.

Earth in 6 minutes, from an optimistic take on how long we will be here.

It sure is an optimistic view and I'm sure Earth will be uninhabitable long before the Sun turns into a red dwarf. 
 
Our intelligence will ultimately be the end of us.

So If all known life on Earth originated from Meteorite impacts from the Astroid Belt then surely the AB would STILL possibly harbour new life-forms in their purest organic form?

Meteorites are divided into 3 types. Simply put, Stone, Iron, Stone/Iron.

Stone are known as Chondrites, some Chondrites can contain traces of organic compounds.

Precursors to life, Scientist favourites such as carbonaceous Chondrites. Rarer, and a lot more pricy

Well if we are to subscribe to the idea that the universe is infinite then yes, by the very definition of infinity.

That's interesting.... do you think that the increased amount of medical intervention and assistance in such things hinders the evolutionary process to have adapted to those conditions

This is wrong, women's hips have become consistently wider over time, and also babies skulls have become deformed at birth, and also a baby is born 12 months too early compared to other mammals, these three adaptations are a consequence of our brain size and intelligence. No other mammal gives birth to infants who cant survive off the mother for 12 months, or have a skull which is so malleable at birth, to allow birth.

Not according to Popular Science which is a reputable org.

Such as caesarian, pain relief, epidurals etc? I suppose as most of women on the planet give birth naturally, maybe with a little pain relief it wouldn't affect the evolutionary process too much. I assume only 50 years ago women gave birth with nothing to hand except the midwife.

A few things that I have issues with 
Darwin's theory of evolution this is only a theory that I don't buy into we evolved from apes then shed all our body hair then need to kill and wear the fur of animals to keep warm,our offspring take 12 months or more to walk everything else in nature is on its feet within hours its a case of survival,if we had not developed weapons we would have been fcuked from the start.This just doesn't add up I think we were either placed here or genetically modified by a far more superior species earth is not our natural planet.
 
Dinosaurs who created them?,and who wiped them out so we could inhabit this planet?,by all accounts what killed them mirrors a nuclear strike or if it was a asteroid hit was this deliberately done?
 
What's the fascination with getting to Mars? Its surface clearly shows scarring of something devastating hitting the planet,NASA rover and satellite's showing a face on there also pyramids and a sphinx and other images that indicate it was once inhabited and NASA going to great lengths to cover it all up air brushing images etc.Why?
 
Sites like pumapunku etc research coming out that the pyramids are way older than originally thought and had nothing to do with Egyptian's and are thought to be some sort of power generators and not tombs.Cave paintings all over the world showing images of basically things dressed like astronauts.And all ancient cultures stating they were visited by people from the stars.
 
And don't even get me started on the moon LOL
 
Do I believe in aliens yes ,unfortunately we are not the most intelligent life form in the universe like it or not I believe we are probably the most under developed species out there and through sheer ignorance or fear we think we are superior.All we do with ant new technology is create weapons and war to kill each other now does that sound like a evolved species.
 
I must add I am not looking for a argument like some sad attention seeking fb pr1ck I am to old for that BS its just what I believe

Probably because early humans in the Ethiopian region found it too hot with body hair so shed it over tens if not hundreds of thousands of years. Prior to this the Ethiopian region was rain forest until climate change and the land mass rising. It's a better theory than being genetically modified by aliens at least.
 
Dinosaurs who created them?,and who wiped them out so we could inhabit this planet?,by all accounts what killed them mirrors a nuclear strike or if it was a asteroid hit was this deliberately done?
 
Evolution created them and there's much proof of the evolutionary process. They were wiped out by an asteroid that hit in the Yucatan Peninsula. The ground disturbance from the crater is there as proof.
 
What's the fascination with getting to Mars? Its surface clearly shows scarring of something devastating hitting the planet,NASA rover and satellite's showing a face on there also pyramids and a sphinx and other images that indicate it was once inhabited and NASA going to great lengths to cover it all up air brushing images etc.Why?
 
As for the fascination of man on Mars. As Mallory said about everest 'Because it's there' I should imagine and it's a good starting point to push out the boundaries into space. Pyramids and the sphinx on Mars? Surely you are not being serious?
 
Sites like pumapunku etc research coming out that the pyramids are way older than originally thought and had nothing to do with Egyptian's and are thought to be some sort of power generators and not tombs.Cave paintings all over the world showing images of basically things dressed like astronauts.And all ancient cultures stating they were visited by people from the stars.
 
How can limestone generate power? What ancient cultures who left a written record are you referring to? You could say many fertility statues resemble aliens but they are just statues of pregnant women. The cave paintings are no different I should imagine.
 
And don't even get me started on the moon LOL
 
It's not made out of cheese.
 
Do I believe in aliens yes ,unfortunately we are not the most intelligent life form in the universe like it or not I believe we are probably the most under developed species out there and through sheer ignorance or fear we think we are superior.All we do with ant new technology is create weapons and war to kill each other now does that sound like a evolved species.
 
I would imagine there are lots of lifeforms that are much more advanced than ourselves, though I'd wager there are lots of lifeforms that possess little or no intelligence as well. 
 
I must add I am not looking for a argument like some sad attention seeking fb pr1ck I am to old for that BS its just what I believe 
 
We are free to believe in whatever we wish, though belief is no substitute for knowledge.

Think it was on the news earlier this week that the Hubble and its new sensor took an image of another galaxy with something like 87 billion suns in it. There a point where numbers just cant measure that scale of things out there.

Plus, don't forget our inability to produce vit C (along with guinea pigs).  Nature doesn't always get it right.  We are due to develop more and more defects as a race, due to our technology keeping traits which would normally kill us, and so their allowed to prosper (i.e. unnatural selection).
 
Maybe our lungs will develop the ability to filter pollution? Maybe we loose the ability to digest meat as intensive farming of replacement crops becomes the norm? Maybe diabetes becomes a natural condition?

It is truly mind blowing mate. The scale of the known Universe is unimaginable, let alone what you find beyond it.
