Yo make a good point. Yes, i agree, if there was abundant life on mars there would be signs. Well, there are signs that there possibly
on mars. There probably IS life on mars. In what form - i do not know.
There is also no way the rovers have investigated the entire surface of mars. That also means that, possibly, the powers-that-be, know where to roam
and where not to roam.
Sometimes, and i hate this term because it is thrown around too easily at times, Occam's Razor just doesn't cut it. Yeah, Google earth and we see
life forms. Is there a Google Mars yet? Nope.
So, though i appreciate your easy to understand and logical post, and PLEASE, this is NOT a knock, i believe there is more to what is on Mars than
what "meets the eye" and Google earth doesn't prove there is life just because there are roads and buildings in certain places. So too, because
there are no roads and buildings blatantly visible (the opposite is also addressed in other threads) does not mean there is NOT life as we MAY know
I also don't believe we haven't visited Mars yet. Yeah, it would take 7 months or so to get there, but we don't have all the answers. Perhaps
humans are already living and working on Mars - speculation of course - not fact - from Earth.
Possibly Mars was the first "earth" - but again - a number of rovers have been sent to Mars. Perhaps the rover was NOT the only thing transported
there during the same "trip". Supplies? Parts? etc etc
Good point too from DogHead and beaverg. There may only be non-human life. Intelligent or not - it is life.
Noew my good friend MikeSingh is the Mars expert - seriously. He has shown much evidence of (possible) life having existed or existing.
But that brings me back to a question, are the rover deliveries smoke screens for other "projects" that are on the go on Mars?
Would NASA use over 4000 technicians, scientists and other personal over a number of years just to but a robot on Mars? Perhaps the cost is well worth
the result. But I would logically say that is a HUGE amount of money and man power for a robot only!! If it was a robot alone perhaps 10 scientists,
50 technicians etc. Maybe a total of 200 people but 4000?? Doesn't make sense - does it?
Contrary to many that believe the rover missions and viking etc were hoaxes, i believe they happened but had MORE important missions in mind.
