This is supported through the evidence shown in the human genome project that points to patterns in our own DNA that implying genetic engineering at some ancient point in time.

Human Genetic Engineering (HGE) is a way for parents to change the way their future children will function, their gender, their personality, and more. It is said that this will help rid of diseases. HGE is done through a process of cell removal and will be available to the public once the human genome is completely sequenced.
