Aliens are interbreeding with humans to create a hybrid species that will save the planet from annihilation by climate change, an Oxford professor has claimed.
Asking how aliens would combat climate change sounds like a fittingly left-field question for an Oxbridge admissions interview.
It is one that sixth-formers will not have to tackle, however, as it has already been answered by a lecturer at Oxford, who says that aliens share our biosphere and intend to colonise the Earth.
They are interbreeding with humans to create a new hybrid species that will save the planet from annihilation by climate change, according to Young-hae Chi, an instructor in Korean at Oxford’s Oriental Institute. These hybrids may already be walking unobserved among us, he said in a lecture several years ago, and he has now written a book on the subject.
Dr Chi has tried to debate his subject at the Oxford Union but his proposal was rejected last year. He believes in a strong correlation between climate change and alien abductions, the Oxford Student newspaper reported.
His lecture, Alien Abduction and the Environmental Crisis, outlined his theory concerning the presence of aliens on Earth.
He cited an “abduction researcher” in the US, who argued that aliens’ primary purpose is to colonise the planet by interbreeding with humans to produce a new hybrid species.
Dr Chi said it was “not only scientists and theologians, but also non-human species who appear to be greatly concerned about the survivability of the human species”.
The timing of the aliens’ appearance coincides with the Earth facing significant problems — climate change and nuclear weapons in particular — and he concluded: “It may be more or less assumed that the hybrid project is a response to this impending demise of human civilisation.”
Acting now on climate change would have the double advantage of not only saving the world but proving aliens wrong in their low estimation of humans’ moral capacity, he said. His book, written in Korean, is called Alien Visitations and the End of Humanity.
