Wow. Thanks for clearing that up. I always get confused about history. I can never keep these things straight. Thank goodness there are folks like you
around that make us all look sane.
Now on topic, Mars has many cool features, and it is a no brainer that some folks choose to see patterns and natural geologic features (that we have
here on this planet too) and turn them into the least likely conclusion. Then yet other people make up stories about these features for reasons I
can't even begin to understand.
I am sure you can understand why people just "make things up". It is more likely that you just don't know why. Once you know, understanding is a
You are here for a reason, right? I can only presume that reason is because you are interested in these topics. This is either because you are an
inquisitive mind, or because you are witness to something that would be classified as "unexplained" (at least, to us plebe's not "in the know").
We see the forum here littered (i hate to use that word) with personal stories about UFO sightings, and there are often disclosures (usually labelled
as HOAX) of one kind or another. This type of evidence is actually more important to some (although not myself so much).
But behind it all, the curious and the witness both share a common feature: they have come across questions that the explanations for just don't add
up. It could be a couple of things, it could be many things. But we all generally have at least that 1 topic that we just cannot accept the
Some people are more gullible, some have more active imaginations, some just have different thresh holds for what they call evidence. But because
there are no facts to go on (other than those which are rejected), people speculate.
As it relates to the stuff from Mars and the Moon....knowing that any things short of a true smoking gun would be easily passed off as the typical
"swamp gas" explanation (or "moon pigeons", to hear Oberg tell it). And, like Zorgon says, sometimes you come across some credible information
that is almost too incredible to believe, and you are unable to share it due to sensitive sources.
While i am sure some of the things proclaimed as "just rocks" are actually just rocks. But then there are those things that are just too close to
matching up with that aforementioned "credible information". This, alone, tells me that while I may sometimes be on the wrong path, I am definitely
in the right forest.
