Oh how quickly everyone forgets! The year 1504 was the "Tribulation" according to Botticelli. William Miller felt the end was coming in 1843 but changed his mind to 1844 when 1843 passed. Edward Bishop chose 1865 but revised his prediction to 1941 which was a rather bad year if you know your history. Mother Shipton wrote, "The world to and end shall come in eighteen hundred eighty one." which probably a rather good year for England under the reign of Queen Victoria - if one was born to the right class and not in the slums of London's east side. Don't forget the plague years in Europe that killed about a third of the population but ended feudalism and gave rise to a prosperous merchant class. In 1910 when the earth passed through the tail of Halley's Comet everyone was supposed to die from cyanogen gas poisoning and from 1914 to 1918 everyone was busy celebrating the European war games of WWI to be accompanied by the Spanish flu in 1918. Pat Robertson declared 1980, "A year of sorrow and bloodshed that will have no end soon, for the world is being torn apart, and my kingdom shall rise from the ruins of it.". Don't take 2017 so seriously. It will probably go down in history like every other year.
Are the extraterrestrials that genetically engineered humanity of reptilian DNA? I would think they are closer to human if they engineered humanity in their image using their DNA and were capable of biological reproduction with their human creations giving rise to special Rh- bloodlines that considered themselves "sons of Heaven" or "Messiahs" having "divine right" to rule over lesser mortals having lower concentrations of extraterrestrial DNA.
