Amazing stuff there. Also, I saw an effigy or your face in a dog turd earlier, uncanny.

Ok so they found alot of weird shaped rocks in a desert planet with diffrent levels of diffrent gasses with almost no liquid water and (probobly) no vegitation to mess it up. Im not saying that there isnt/wasnt advanced life on mars, im just saying that to hold the standards of Earths normalitys to other planets without Human civilization plowing over thousands of acres every year for building, agriculture, ect., is a little out there. We have cool features on earth too, theyre just diffrent from what were seeing there.

game over folks, we have a bunch of obvious experts on AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PLANET commenting today. they say its BS, so IT IS. any arguing will just prove how stupid you are. /sarcasm

anyways, Listypoos, why would anyone listen to you? obviously hitting "PAUSE" is too difficult a task for you...

It is highly unlikely that there has been life on Mars before. The sun before it explodes billions of years from now probably will get hotter and hotter. Meaning after the supernova which formed it, it was even cooler than it is now. Uninhabitable temperatures. Most of those structures when looked at from a different angle look like nothing more than rocks... which Mars is COVERED with.

yeah it`s bs..... but it would have been nice to have been shown the images for more than a few milliseconds before they whizzed off the screen again.

If you stare at something long enough you will see what you want to see. This is all bs

Close @Steelgrid, except Mars does have an atmosphere, just not much of one. Gravity is a little less there because Mars is just a little bit smaller than earth. Other than that, I agree that natural forces can cause many if not all of these formations. I doubt any are artificial, but I guess we won`t know until we send a lot more robots to Mars.

Some of these could be legit, and I am a firm believer that this cannot be the only occupied planet. But the diamond shaped mountains are easily explained. Due to the lack of atmosphere MARS has a little bit less gravity. As a result, pyroclastic flows from volcanic vents can easily build these monuments and also cause the 3,4- and 5 sided mountains.

With enough shadow and light, you can make anything look like anything.

[quote]So this is the secular version of finding Jesus in toast?[/quote]

I`d say a secular version rather than the secular version, but it`s a good comparison.

Most of what we think of as our vision doesn`t even come from our eyes. We`re mostly making it up from our brains (which is why optical illusions work) and the system is very heavily weighted towards pattern recognition. So much so that false positives are commonplace, especially with noteworthy patterns. The more you want to see it, the more you`ll see it.

I`m going to go out on a limb and suggest that this video is not from NASA and they`ve just chucked "NASA" in to gain false authority.

Entre,
You asked so I am telling you the theory (not subscribing to it). The belief is that Earth was populated by aliens from another planet either they started on mars or they tried to colonize mars prior to earth. That`s the "theory".

on mars and every other place in the universe evolution would also have started at zero and would probably have gone a completely different way than on earth. why would anyone expect to find a species that looks so much like us? it`s highly unlikely

Why would Martians capable of spaceflight build poo out of stone and dirt? We don`t. Also, if you are applying They came to Earth and became Egyptians, why would you go from living in spaceships and whatnot to living in huts in a desert?

Richard C. Hoagland`s books go into all of these mysteries. Great read.

Wait so Egyptians came from Mars to populate the earth and Egyptians worshipped cats as gods meaning.......

I`ll be preparing for our kitteh masters.

I, for one, will welcome out Martian Overlords when they return.

Oh, it`s just a bunch of rocks? Well, never mind then.

Couldn`t watch the whole thing for two reasons:

1) When will people learn that we are genetically programmed to see faces in patterns?

2) The "face" they showed at 1:10 has been shown not to resemble a face when viewed at better resolution. This is known, and has been for a long time! Why even go there?

maybe some of this stuff was built on earth before it was turned into the moon by an asteroid and now its up there? nah

The face has been debunked, but there`s lots of stuff we don`t understand yet.

vv @ddag89 old human buildings, eroded for centuries by sand, SEEM to look like things seen on Mars. Which of course would be centuries old and eroded by Martian sand, eh?

I admit it is possible that these are artifacts and not natural. However, until you actually get someone there looking at things up close, a grainy picture proves nothing.

The Earth is covered in phenomena like this. I was once in a cave where two stalagmites formed a perfect set of tits (side-by-side, perfect shape, they were even pinkish in color).

Putting real stuff in with fake stuff invalidates this whole thing.

Definitely looking too hard.

It`s like the "Jezus" on burnt toast story.
It`s not really there, BUT if some old crazy religious lady explains why SHE thinks it looks like
Jezus, then you`re like: Hmm, okay.

@ddaq89

I think the implication might be that these things on earth were influenced by visitors from mars - like the egyptian pharoah or the incan statues...

wishful thinking :)

Not sure what we are even looking at half the time. A lack of explanation leaves everything open to interpretation. When everything is open to interpretation, nothing makes sense.

Ah, yes, 1:53. I remember the image of Bigfoot on Mars when it was in the news, years ago.

freddyferret: Feeling dystopic today?

This is more a testament of the human mind`s predisposition to see patterns, especially faces, in inanimate objects.

Most of the references were to things and objects found on Earth. Why would Mars have things built to resemble Earth structures or culture? They are looking WAY to hard to find what is not there.

wasnt there a post not too long ago about how the human mind just likes finding faces in things? did we not learn anything?

There IS intelligent life out there. (They are intelligent enough to stay away from this cell pool.) Whether or not they did the stuff in these pictures, we`ll never know.

okay, these photos were nothing new to me, and i was genuinely uninterested in them. however, i did watch the whole video because i was really feeling the music.

The `face` at Cydonia has been thoroughly debunked after much better images were obtained. The rest of the stuff? I didn`t see anything very convincing of intentional structures.
