Consider it calling them out, if you will, but I bet if I had de facto control of Curiosity, I could prove that there is or at least WAS life on Mars, within about 3-4 weeks.
JPL, NASA, if you'll take that bet, I'm totally game for it.

It's only convincing when there are not alternative explanations. The visual evidence is actually not compelling at all. One of the minerals is not known to form on Earth by abiotic means, that's the only compelling evidence. This was later made less compelling when they actually found an abiotic method of creating it. This means there is literally nothing in the meteorite that is suggestive of life using Ockham's Razor.
