    Link: NASA Mars Anomalies - Strange deviations found on the surface of Mars. Have they actually found something....or just looking too hard?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    freddyferret: Feeling dystopic today?

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

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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).

    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?

    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?

    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?

    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

    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".

    So this is the secular version of finding Jesus in toast?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
