I took this from another thread. It's me, but i'm ranting. Forgive that, but it contains some points I'd like to make.
First, though, if you haven't you need to look up nasa and mars on youtube. About 1/15 is actually useful info. The true/false color thing bugs me.
It's deliberatley screwy. Or I'm stupid.
I don't know where to start here.
I've looked into the Mars situation more than anything else. Not that that means much to you, but... let's just say that I'm a skeptic.
The situation is not s clear cut cartoon cover-up.
The EU/ESA knows there's life on mars. Of course, so does NASA.
Forget the Past civilization crap. Obviously, there isn't a thriving human-like civilization there today, so let's focus on one thing at a time.
EU/ESA would love to announce this to their people, but the good ol' US is afraid of two things: 1.) they don't want to upset the bible-thumpin'
retards here and 2.) If they admit that there's life on Mars it will open the floodgates for a whole bunch of questions they don't want to answer.
The polar regions of mars have some kind of higher life. Probably like huge lichens or some kind of photosynthetic colonial bacteria. Maybe like big
blue-green algae. Those regions are shielded enough from solar wind and have complex seasonal chemistry.
I'm a microbiologist by trade. The conditions of the polar regions of Mars are paradise compared to many of the hostile niches occupied by various
bacters on earth. No joke. Extremophiles for an extreme example, but deep sea vents, everywhere. Bacteria can survive deep space vacuums, you
wouldn't believe how tough they are.
Another thing, we've already contaminated Mars with earth bacteria. There are bacterial strains that are hard to 100% remove that have traveled to
Mars on probes and are doing just fine there. At least, it's highly probable in my opinion.
NASA contradicts themselves about Mars daily. They lie about the atmosphere and environmental conditions. Good example: I watched a NASA researcher
going on excitedly about how great the rovers were doing and in the process cited the absolute PROOF of not just oceans but complex freshwater systems
in the not-too-distant past. Turn around, and that day the official NASA stance was strong evidence for there once having been an ocean of some kind.
Check out the Fasle/True color bs. Sort that one out. They use the terms indiscriminately. The ESA fasle color is not the NASA false color.
I could go on, but I have seen thousand and thousands of biological and chemical processes from many many different perspectives. Yes some inorganic
processes mimic or appear biological but the distinguishing chararacteristics are present with close and ongoing examination. The types of
"patterns," if you will, seen in the polar regions of mars. Are NOT and CANNOT BE SOLELY A RESULT OF SEASONAL FROST OR CO2
SUBLIMATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is biological.
One more, if not, then why is there serious concern about designating all the regions of mars where non-NASA biologists suspect that there is LIFE as
NATURAL PRESEVES, not to be developed commercially or residentially.???
Which also raises a bucnh of other questions... whew... I've got tons more, but... what's the point?
ps. Iknow the mars parks bit is sketchy, but I've seen real UN documents about it I just can't find them....
