Any evidence deep sea creatures such as octopus or bioluminescent oddities are extraterrestrial?
Nearly impossible to believe these exceedingly strange animals are natural to this planet?

You don't have to believe anything you don't want to.
The world does not need your agreement.

As far as we know, all living creatures on Earth share elaborate biochemical mechanisms that indicate they all originated in a common ancestor way back in time.

None whatsoever. Their genomes are similar to those of related animals.

No, and the fossil record clearly records their gradual evolution.

LOL - and yet we all share some of the same genes...... they are earth creatures just like us!

No such evidence. They have DNA and they have close relatives on earth, and that rules it out as extraterrestrial. For them to be extraterrestrial, it would take them traveling millions of years to get here and they have to, by pure chance, just happened to look similar to earth bound animals and they also have to evolve the use of DNA and the universal genetic code independently. The odds of that are astronomical. Vegas will gladly accept any bets from people who think that any animal on earth is extraterrestrial. They will pay out a million bucks for a 1 dollar bet because they cannot lose.

Embryology puts the octopus into the Lophotrochozoa clade.
Molecular evidence says these guys are animals from Earth.
Read up on Mollusca. The cephalopods are interesting, but they're still mollusks.

In a 2018 paper, 33 evolutionary scientists even seriously argued that octopus biology would have needed an input of genes from an extraterrestrial source!
That person who said you're "too dumb to understand how they could have originated" obviously isn't aware of this.Source(s): Steele, E., and 32 others, Cause of Cambrian Explosion—Terrestrial or cosmic? Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology 136:3–23, 2018

You being too dumb to understand how they could have originated does not count as evidence that they're aliens.
