Much like your music...

“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well,
on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away
and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”

**** off. At least save it for when the joke is funny.
Studies show that when a given norm is changed in the face of the unchanging, the remaining contradictions will parallel the truth.

I was thinking perhaps humans making contact with extra terrestrial life and getting them to admit that one of them ****ed an ape, which created cro magnon man.

Are you looking to disprove the current theory we have of evolution or an actual alternative to the theory as a whole?

For instance, what if some kind of alien bacteria, virus, growth(?) etc was actually responsible for the observed changes we call evolution, and it breaks the current model?

I really don't have the imaginative or scientific capacity to think of a third option besides the lame thought above.

(A) There would need to be evidence of many different species emerging independently through some (very difficult to imagine) abiogenesis-to-relatively-complex-organism instantaneous occurrence (it would have to be from abiogenesis to relatively complex organism more or less instantaneously, with no developmental stages, otherwise we're back to evolution). And (B) we'd need to be able to alternately explain the present evidence of genetic shifts producing different species--we'd need to be able to explain what was really going on that gave the appearance of what we now classify as evolution.

I mean there's no other way to slice it than something impossible would have to happen.
