I am so tired of people posting crud like this! I love the photo with ET in it though... Awesome!
Okay, first of all the existence of life cannot be proven with a photograph. An image cannot convey the criterion upon which we base our definition of
life (we cannot observe metabolism, reproduction, evolution, response to environmental stimuli, etc.). Even if we are fortunate enough to capture a
clear image of something "life-like", there is no way to prove anything from a still photo (case and point, ET!).
Clearly, the guy is a total whack-job who's just looking for attention, as several of you already pointed out. He probably thinks the moon
landings were hoaxes too! With researchers still debating the validity of the Allan Hills meteorite, it can be difficult to decide if something is of
biogenic origin even when you have it in your hands.
No image posted on ATS or anywhere else will ever be able to definitively prove the existence of life on Mars, the Moon, Jupiter, or anywhere else. I
want to see evidence of extraterrestrial life as much as anyone else but we are limited by our tools & methods. Show me a detailed analysis and maybe
then, I'll take it seriously.
