Yeah, that rock kinda does look like a skull. Angle is everything...







The rocky terrain on Mars is no exception.

I've always thought that image was more striking than the rest, reminds me of this armor Zod wears from Man of Steel (Newest superman flick for anyone who doesn't know)

As I have always said, and the reason for which a conspiracy seems likely.
If you see a shiny something in the sand on the beach...You bend down and pick it up. If not you could have walked over a coin, or something interesting.

Yet the many oddities seen on Mars has not caused the controllers of the lander, to just go over and take a closer look.

Either a very boxed in paradigm confines their minds or a deliberate effort to ignore.

My advice guys........at least look at the best of the oddities.
That's why they call it exploring.

Wow! I'm so happy to see so many replies! I will be replying this evening with some more editing pics to show what I see. I'm on my iPhone and it's very difficult to do such things on it.

Thanks for all the replies even if we don't agree and I want to burry you on Mars
I day that in a loving sarcastic way!

This pic has always been one stuck in my mind and with people I meet through work who work on such projects the things they say when they have some drinks in them are quite interesting. I won't name names do don't ask. Many people on here know the kind of people I meet at my job.


Anyway thank you and I will reply tonight as soon as little man goes go bed!

Those are interesting. Where are they from?

There is so my about our own planet we don't even know. We have had so many civilizations over millions of years here. We find bits and pieces in what is called "forbidden archeology." Yet people deny it because it doesn't fit with what we've been brainwashed to people. I question everyone and when you do enough research and put the pieces together it's like one huge puzzle! The things I believe now I never thought possible before but with years of research, reading, views and going through pics til I passed out with my laptop on my lap my views changed. They're always changing. I question everything!

I agree that the upper part of it looks like a skull, but just because it looks like it does not mean that's what it is. So I'm going to have to side with logic, and say it's a rock.


I can't believe people are actually posting these threads...

It looks like a skull, but with all the landscape pictures I've seen, I'm wondering why there isn't more of them laying around.

Perhaps mars is the garden of Eden we can never go back to, because we sinned and destroyed it. Maybe we were never supposed to forget that lesson,but we are doing it all over again. Maybe noahs ark was the spaceship that brought us here. Maybe the reason so many people have back and knee problems is because we were meant to be on mars,a smaller planet with less gravity. Or, conversely, maybe not!


That's what you really believe?

I was thinking power armour helmet from Fallout 3 or New Vegas maybe. How did the Brotherhood of Steel find their way to Mars?

Typical answer.

DO you ever think outside the box?


I do?

Thinking "inside the box" is relying our knee jerk recognition system that has been narrowly trained to associate...skull..face..arm etc. with every image we encounter.

Thinking "outside the box" is to engage scientific, objective thinking.

Such as...does the climate of mars afford for biological material to survive?

The erosion mark or dent in the object infers a solid object vs. hollowed out skull...that or a skull that is at least several inches thick to afford for a deep erosion spot.

Then I ask questions about lighting, original picture pixilation, symmetry...the odds and conditions of alien life evolving in a humanoid manner.

I believe that life once existed on Mars. I do not think this is evidence of the same.

I've always thought that looked like a rock with two more rocks sitting in front of it. If you were to remove those two stones, you'd be left with one that has a couple of recesses in it. Hardly conclusive evidence of anything. I don't think we've seen anything that proves even a simple life forms ever existed there, let alone more advanced and evolved species.

A rock-shaped object in a rocky area that is rock-colored is not enough proof...

We see too many non-symmetrical objects that are supposedly designed objects or buildings, that are rock-colored in areas with no other signs of the bygone civilizations. No roads, other buildings, or other anything. Shown pictures of a "lizard" although there is absolutely nothing around to sustain life, unless it eats dust and drinks nothing.

On Earth, in archaeology, they find and date sites by the collection of artifacts they find on the site, including bones. Typically people live together.. it's easier to trade, survive and find company. So there is an abundant amount of material to date a find. A single skeleton or artifact or curio is less common by far. And yet that's all we see on Mars supposedly. No communities or neighborhoods or cities or roads or anything. Just the odd object by itself in the middle of nowhere.

I still haven't seen anything to make me think there is anything other than rocks and natural formations there.

But you don't know...you can't really be 99.9% sure. I'm not 99.9% sure that it is artificial. Since we don't have boots on the ground all we have are these pics to scour through and look for anomalies. That's what we're doing. It could very well be a natural rock/combination of rocks/sand...we don't know, but there is a possibility that it is something more...I think it's a good possiblity that there was life on Mars much more evolved than bacteria or such....


I said 99.9% sure because i cant be sure.

Thats not my point, calling people foolish because they dont believe is wrong, belittling people because they disagree is wrong, simply because the evidence presented is not conclusive.

I just think there has to be a balance between belief and scepticism and both sides should understand the others position without belittling each other.

Is all


Agreed. Only want to add that you saying 99.9% it's a rock, is almost like calling those of us that think otherwise...especially me, since I never said 100% of anything...just like you said...it belittles those of us that believe it could be something else. Perhaps framing your statements in a way that leaves us amateur archaeologists a little room to post these without feeling like we're being insulted would be good.

Good points.

I believe it "could" be a skull..but I am 99.9% confident it is a rock.

I think it is always important to sort out what we want to believe from objective science.

I am pretty sure that there is other life in the universe. Science suggests it as likely. I also think science suggests that Mars was at one time habitable for some form of life.

Ancient Mars May Have Been Habitable for Hundreds of Millions of Years
www.space.com...

I also think it's climate over the past hundreds of millions of years would obliterate most if not all biological evidence of life...and certainly there is no scenario I can imagine where something like a skull might survive.

What we are seeing here is an example of what our minds want to see (familiar shapes) plus lighting and erosion patterns. I am 99.9% sure of that, but hope one day I am proven wrong

Theres tons of interesting rocks in this image. How come the only interesting one is a 'skull like' one?
Personally I'd like more science work done on these ancient rocks, like composition and origins than just what does that one look like?

Do you ever think logically? Lol


I really like your OP. Very interesting stuff. However the person you replied to was very logical and fair in his assessment. Not saying either way but putting his vote In the rock box.

Your way of handling his very reasonable assessment was poorly handled.





That said it really could be something. The problem I have is it looks too human. I assume there would be a greater difference when talking about a totally different evolutionary path.

Some one else's opinion doesn't instantly belittle yours. It's you being too sensative and shows an obvious lack of conviction on your personal beliefs. That said we should be logical about these things and 99% chance it is just a rock, but that still leaves 1%... More then enough to actually be something.

At first I saw a skull, after a couple of minutes a rock. As much as I'd like it to be something else, the curves in the object appear to be way too imperfect for me to make an actual skull out of it or anything like that (helm, etc.). It looks like more like a rock in the shape of a skull to me.

Also, what is going on with the rock vs no-rock arguments in the community lately? It has gotten to an extreme level. Everyone is just shouting ''it's obviously 'a rock'/'not a rock' and if you see something else in it you're insane'' in the last few weeks. Can't we remain open-minded anymore? (And open-minded does not mean ''if you see something else, you're insane'', like most of the people seem to think lately...) Just bring out your thoughts and don't force someone to agree with you.
