First, a bit about me
This blog post is about the real possibility that a game-changing scientific discovery of alien life has been made, which will have unimaginable consequences for human society. And because that sounds plain weird and overwrought, I find it necessary to add some points about my own essential research philosophy before proceeding with some ideas regarding the possible implications of what Professor Wainwright thinks he has found.
Readers of my blog posts will be well aware that I am a confirmed atheist and that I like to consider myself to be an optimistic rational skeptic, concerned with pursuing veracity and busting myths and fallacies.
Inside my own private hype, I like to imagine that I am 'the skeptics skeptic' - a "super-skeptic" if you like. And if I am going to continue to believe in my own ego-boosting self-serving hype on that front then it is necessary for me to continue to nurture and keep as open and as rationally skeptical a mind as I believe I am able.

Part of my personal philosophy of seeking to nurture my own brand of optimistic super-skepticism, is to keep an eye out for when events and discoveries appear to converge - but to be aware that the apparent convergence might be nothing more than common-or-garden selective cherry-picking bias on the part of me - the pattern recognizer.
So, with my caveats and corollaries safely stated, let me proceed to suggest the possibility of something seemingly outrageously beyond the expert 'majority view' as a clue for how life evolved on Earth. But first please note: I do not at all "believe" the current expert majority view of organic evolution is wrong. What I am doing in this blog post is presenting some new evidence that it might be about to undergo a revolutionary revision.
Are we on the brink of the Alien Revolution in Science?
In considering the new evidence, it is important to exercise an open mind by creating a research environment, physically, socially and mentally, in which things can happen and where significant data can be detected and then appreciated.
In the words of Alexander Fleming (1959), in order to first make game changing discoveries, one should:
'Work hard, work well, do not clutter up the mind too much with precedents, and be prepared to accept such good fortune as the gods offer...'
To appreciate the 'bombshell' significance of your newly discovered hard facts (Wainwright et al 2013) is, at the very outset at least, an altogether more subjective and intuitive matter. I don't think such appreciation is something that can be taught to everyone. To argue for and promote the significance of your discovery, in the face of a powerful, hostile, and self-interested 'expert' 'majority view', requires personal and intellectual mettle and integrity for fact-led progress that is often lacking in the world.
A "Subjectively Constructed' Triangulation of Recent Hard Data-Driven Discoveries in the field of Organic Macro Evolution by Natural Selection
1.My personal research suggests Patrick Matthew (1831) not only was first to prior-publish the full theory of natural selection (See my Rational Wiki Essay), but the New Data (Sutton 2014) 100 per cent proves Darwin lied about Matthew's influence and significantly increases the probability of some kind of Matthewian 'knowledge contamination' and that Darwin and Wallace (1858) in their Linnean Society papers, and Darwin (1859) in The Origin of Species, committed plagiarizing science fraud when they replicated Matthew's ideas and then claimed no prior-knowledge of them. Some of my findings that confirm my First to be Second (F2b2) Hypothesis are quite amazingly independently confirmed by prior research conducted by Professor Milton Wainwright (Professor of microbiology at Sheffield University, England). Wainwright and I are, to my knowledge, the only ones in the World to have written peer reviewed (refereed) scholarly academic journal articles to conclude that the hard and independently verifiable data to be found in the published literature record supports the probability of both knowledge contamination and plagiarizing science fraud in the story of Matthew, Darwin and Wallace (here).
2. Dr Mike Weale, Reader in Statistical Genetics at Kings College, London, recently concluded, on the balance of available published evidence in the publication record of Matthew's work, that Patrick Matthew - the true Originator of the theory of macro organic evolution by natural selection - believed as early as 1831 in a non-christian 'benevolent intelligent and purposeful designer' of all organic life on Earth. Weale's (2015) unique synthesis of the literature goes further than my own (Sutton 2014), which discusses the fact that Matthew felt, much later in his life that there was a benevolence and objective beauty in nature, which natural selection alone could not explain.
3. Milton Wainwright has uniquely discovered what he believes all the hard evidence suggests to be intelligently designed alien particles in the stratosphere (see my blog posts here and here). To date, the wider scientific community is unable to dis-confirm this alien particles hypothesis. Incredibly, the data, to date, in absence of further independent research, provides, seemingly at least, tentative confirmatory evidence for the hypothesis that life on Earth was seeded by an intelligent alien life form.
Patrick Matthew: The biological father of the theory of natural selection
I wonder what Patrick Matthew, the man with unique and brilliant brain enough to first discover the most important scientific explanation for life on Earth - who more likely than not seeded the brains of Darwin and Wallace with it - would have made of Wainwright's apparent revolutionary discovery of intelligently designed alien particles raining alien biological matter down on the Earth? I expect he would have loved it.
If Wainwright is right, and of that it must be stressed that both we and he should, quite rightly, currently, remain far from certain, then our understanding of the natural law of natural selection will need to undergo some modification in order to accommodate the new evidence that, in the evolution of organic life on Earth, bombarding alien biological matter has more likely than not been purposefully involved - and perhaps has been so involved for a very long time.

A Wainwright Alien Particle
Conclusions and the way forward
These are interesting times. We must keep rationally skeptical, but, as part of that cognitive process, our minds should be kept open. Most importantly, we must seek to determine exactly what Wainwright and his team have uniquely discovered, Whatever his particles are, they are a new and unique discovery. Are they intelligently designed alien particles? We are going to find out one way or the other. Of that there can now be no rational doubt.
I think that my triangulation of my own unique discoveries with those of Wainwright and Weale is obviously more indicative of the biased cherry-picking workings of my own brain than the existence of any kind of objective existence of a particularly important fusion of knowledge that is greater than the sum of its parts. Nevertheless, if Wainwright is right about his particles then his discovery, seen in light of Mike Weale's evidence-led conclusions about Matthew's probable beliefs in ours being a purposefully designed universe, raises further the need to address the dysological Darwin eclipse - outlined by my work, Milton Wainwright's and Jim Dempster's (among others) - of the un-trumpeted brilliance of Patrick Matthew as an immortal great thinker in science.
It's all appearing to my biased brain to be rather serendipitous, which I have to admit greatly disturbs me, but it also excites me a little - because of the incredible possibilities. The problem is (and it's probably just something of a pastern recognizing 'gift' that nature naturally hard-wired into my brain that's doing it) I can't now help wondering about the theory that this work of Matthew, Darwin, Wainwright, Weale and me all happened at the very beginning of our notion of time. The thinking behind such a seemingly daft notion is that time is the fourth dimension and is not simply linear or sequential - as we initially perceive it to be with our naturally selected senses. Did all of this happen already? Did we have no choice but to make these discoveries - for you to read this blog and have the thoughts you have about it? You can view that counter-intuitive (at least above the subatomic level) weird "timelessness" theory here. And if it is right, then you, dear reader, had no choice to click that link or not - just as the case may be and has always been and always will be in this universe, or in this part of the possible multiverse.
Such weirdness there is in science!
Imagine what it will mean for us - for religion and science - for all of human society - if Wainwright lives up to his name and is proven right. The consequences for all of science and society will be of unimaginable magnitude. Is this the beginning of what will come to be called The Alien Revolution?

On this site you will find hard, referenced, and independently verifiable, facts that newly reveal the 100 per cent proven lies, machinations and broader social processes that facilitated Darwin's purposeful eclipse of the man whose bombshell ideas he replicated and yet claimed never to have read before he did so, whilst those he knew personally, and who he admitted influenced him, are newly proven to have read Matthew's book because they actually cited it in the literature.
