I don't think this has been posted yet? I'm on a phone so please excuse the not so amazing intro.

There certainly have been some ground breaking discoveries as of late and now this,whatever next?

This trend certainly seems to be gearing up for possibly 'the' disclosure.

I'm sure the many folks who have always championed life on Mars and the structures etc will be grinning smugly today.

I bet Hoaglands buzzing saying that!

What says ATS?

From your source:


The Curiosity rover has found and analysed the first definitively identified piece of organic matter on the surface of Mars.

These organic molecules, consisting primarily of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms, are the building blocks of all life on Earth. However, it is important to note that these molecules may not have come from life forms on Mars -- organic molecules can be created from chemical processes that do not involve life, NASA said.


Hm. So they found hydrogen, oxygen and carbon...
But no actual life...

OK phones playing up,ignore last post please.

As the two astute members have pointed out this is not the 'life' they had envisioned going by the links headline.but this find as well as the other recently (about Mars) is indicating organic vegetation being present at some point.

This info really raised my curiosity,as I can really see this kind info prepping the way for disclosure of sorts..

Well, you could be right.

Certainly a step in the right direction. But there are steps between "organic matter" and "life," which is what I'm secretly hoping that they will find on Mars.

Or it will be a discovery, not necessarily "disclosure".

  • When Galileo found that Jupiter's Moons orbited Jupiter, and thus led to the idea that the Earth orbited the Sun, it was a "discovery", not "disclosure.
  • When Edwin Hubble realized that there are countless other galaxies in the Universe, and the universe is not limited only to our Milky Way galaxy, that was a "discovery", not "disclosure".
  • When we find enough solid evidence to say that there is life on Mars, then that will be a "discovery", not "disclosure".

Indeed so, and a very good point that is too!

The difference between discovery and disclosure is pretty simple I would say. Disclosure, in the terms we use the word in, means the distribution of information previously retained by a select few. Discovery means finding evidence of a thing, or finding a thing itself, uncovering a truth previously only speculated about, or perhaps never imagined.

Of course, working out which is which can be troublesome, especially with so much disinformation floating around.

The Viking lander in the 70's found evidence of past life on Mars in similar results. I don't really know why we keep sending robots to Mars to re-discover the same things over and over again.

Meethinks they're stalling to buy time -- gotta clean up before the "first" human arrives on Mars

Thanks for pointing out that definition guys lol I was aware of that.

That definition explains that they indeed have known all along and the point I originally alluded to,was,that this could well be the early stages of disclosure to subtly instill in the psyche of the masses.

There is a lot to disclose and to just out the truth needs to come in stages I would imagine.I mean,judging by the rate of so called discoveries at the moment,who knows what may well be discussed soon..possibly how the civilization on Mars met its demise and also it's connection to this planet,not to mention who this civilization probably belonged to,that being the Annunaki which leads us to today and may also explain the majority of UFO sightings.

I read the first paragraph they say they found it but took it back in the next sentence I for one will not hold my breath because the way it's going over a NASA i'll be long dead before they actually tell us anything important... just unbelievable....thanks for posting though!

AGAIN... It was found by the VIKING lander back in the 70's...and was discounted as a false positive.

As far as I know, the findings back at the time where "inconclusive"....or better, some had doubts about the findings even when some think/claim that they *did* indeed find evidence.

The point with science is, it is FACT based. If there is a only a hint of doubt, it can be smarter to keep on the safe side, RATHER than announcing something where there is a chance, 10%, 20%, whatever that it is actually not the case. This is just not how science works.

As for "disclosure", it always means someone HAS knowledge and is holding it back until...well..this knowledge is disclosed.

I have no reason to believe in such a thing. It would be the best thing for NASA if they were able THEY FOUND LIFE...any conspiracy theory they did and are "holding back" this information doesn't make any sense to me.

Do some people seriously believe we spend millions, billions even on space projects, probes, with 1000s of scientists working and developing experiments, big PR stunts and media hype about missions....and then "hide" the information? (Aside the impossibility to hide such discoveries when 1000s of people are involved. Again: MAKES.NULL.SENSE.)

C'mon. It's the Intellengistia's drip- drop ing the public with predictive programming for what's on the big picture agenda... the story to be told... perception is reality.

.... so, what's on the menu for TODAY Sir? 😜

Finding life on Mars is not the same as finding a Civilization on Mars
