1. Basalt columns on Mars were constructed like these columns in Yellowstone National Park: www.flickr.com...
NASA scientists thought the Martian columns were like those at Devils Tower. I think they are more like those in the first link.
2. Brilliant mankind may discover in 100 years how to produce basalt columns.
3. Many people, not just the man you mentioned, thought basalt columns were made by humans.
4. Nature without life (geological processes) cannot produce basalt columns. Bees or dinosaurs cannot produce basalt columns.
The Eocene is the second of five epochs in the Tertiary Period — the second of three epochs in the Paleogene — and lasted from about 55.8 to 33.9 million years ago.* The oldest known fossils of most of the modern orders of mammals appear in a brief period during the early Eocene and all were small, under 10 kg. Both groups of modern ungulates, Artiodactyla and Perissodactyla, became prevalent mammals at this time, due to a major radiation between Europe and North America.
