Each of the scientists carefully examined the alien bodies under their microscopes. These tiny bodies had been found lying in clusters near their crashed ship.
Suddenly, one of the scientists jumped up and shouted.
“No! I cannot believe this!”
The other scientists stopped working and rushed over to the scientist.
“What? What have you found?” they urgently asked.
“These are the organisms that began life on earth. The same organisms that evolved into what we are today, humans.”
“How can that be?” asked the other scientists, “Do you think that another planet in the universe is evolving into becoming a planet like earth?”
The worried scientist answer grimly, “What I believe is they have come to earth to begin evolving again.”
“But, why? Why would they need to come back and start evolving again?”
“It means, life on earth as we know it, is going to end.”
