I take it you mean the origin of anatomically modern humans, not the origin of life? If so, we know that it didn't happen.

We (Homo Sapiens) evolved here, we know this beyond rational doubt. That is to say, once you are aware of the evidence for it and you understand it, still having doubts that would cause you to consider your suggested alternative to have a smidgeon of a leg to stand on, would be irrational.

So if you believe there's a case to be made for human beings having been seeded here by extraterrestrials, that is either because you are not aware of the evidence that humans evolved here with the rest of life, or you don't understand that evidence, or you have some sort of underlying neuropsychological issue that prevents you from accepting it.
