Some scientists believe that conditions on Mars were more favourable for the evolution of life at this time than they were on Earth. "This mapping makes geologic interpretations consistent with previous studies, and constrains the timing of these putative lakes to the early-middle Noachian period on Mars," said Dr Leslie Bleamaster, research scientist at the Planetary Science Institute in Tucson. The researchers say that fine-layered outcrops around the eastern rim of Hellas are likely to be sedimentary deposits.
I guess the only question that remains is how much longer will we have to wait for the confirmation that Mars was or maybe still is home to life ?
Magnetic analysis of the Martian surface indicates that when Mars was just 500 million years old, its global magnetic field disappeared. Without this shield, streams of ionizing particles spewing from the sun strip away a planet's atmosphere, vaporizing any water on the surface, and killing any life that may have emerged, or perhaps, forcing it underground.

The Illuminati should know all about that sort of thing.
So now we know that Mars could not hold the water God gave it.

How old is Mars? The same age as Earth I am guessing right? Could it be possible that Earth and Mars could both have the conditions favourable for life, at the same time?
Planetary scientists think that Mars, and the rest of the Solar System, all formed together from the solar nebula about 4.6 billion years ago. So Mars is 4.6 billion years old.
