Is this a rock or a f*cking mutant worm of the outer space? Has eyes, a weird mouth... if not, is a very weird rock...

It's a rock.

No tree bark (whose bark is worse than its bite) but from one of the Mars pics from last year.

ah ok , I thought I was looking at one of your simulacra's again , but then its easy to get lost in the pictures of Jeep's thread last year , 500 - 1000 at least ?

to be honest ive lost count

Catastrophism or slow change over millennia?

Of course, on Earth, we have the kind of tectonics and volcanism and water weathering that could account for various layers of sedimentary rock being "tossed around" on the surface. But the more I look at the Martian landscape, the more I'm baffled by the way different kinds of rocks appear to be pushed around and twisted and thrown about. I have to assume that a lot of them were blown out by volcanoes a long, long time ago, but they don't seem to show signs of having weathered for a couple billion years. Also if the stratified layers were pushed up and out of shape by tectonics and volcano activity, then that had to have happened after all the years it took to lay down the sediment. But by that time, wasn't all the ground displacement activity done with?

If we consider that these out-of-place rocks were tossed where they were by meteorite impacts, then we have to admit that there was at one time a whole lot of that going on, and enough to actually shift large portions of the surface.

I'm still pondering it. I guess we still don't know about the history of Mars geology to figure out exactly when certain things happened (like the last rainfall ever), to be able to figure out the age of most of the rocks we see in the images.

I think both.

I don't remember seeing any sign of a layer being changed by any other thing besides erosion. I haven't seen any signs of metamorphic rocks either.

not just your uncertainty Mr Shift , look how many times the word likely is used in response to femur photo from last year




No bones about it! Seen by Mars rover Curiosity using its MastCam, this Mars rock may look like a femur thigh bone. Mission science team members think its shape is likely sculpted by erosion, either wind or water.

If life ever existed on Mars, scientists expect that it would be small simple life forms called microbes. Mars likely never had enough oxygen in its atmosphere and elsewhere to support more complex organisms. Thus, large fossils are not likely.

likely uncertainty of course

Yes...statistical probabilities rule the universe. Our formulas just...have to be right.


Quick question for you indigenous to this thread. After seeing thousands of pics...what do you think ?

Life yes or no ?
Present or past ?
Complex or simple ?

No proof necessary.

haha...that was rather on the safe side from you Armap. So after few thousand pages on this thread...you've not seen anything that would convince you of complex life...not to mention...in the present.

You have a high tolerance for watching whole lot of rocks then

To answer your survey question, after reading and posting on this thread I've seen images that tend to favor past evidence of life. Not too many convincing former-life-possibility images, but enough true possibilities (especially given the very tiny swat of land that the rover has covered) that I'd lean towards "life finds a way". I've seen no evidence of present life on Mars, but wouldn't be surprised if it appears. Have seen no evidence of Martian-made structures. If present life exists, it is probably micro rather than larger than a Martian-breadbox. Thanks for a good question, you are a gentleman and an internetscholar.

It's what I'm always thinking about such subjects.

well...non definitive at least. Or one could argue on that...depending on your level of gullibility...

yep, extremophiles that look like rocks, I think I would evolve that way too, if I knew earth was our nearest neighbour.

I think that answers all three
hat trick with no proof but based on a few suggestive photos, that are 350 kb *av* jpegs,

but then the photos we've been viewing could be complete fantasy, and maybe a long stretch to what is actually there
