It shouldn't feel manufactured to me but it does. Russia has failed so many Mars missions they shouldn't even be launching anything into orbit. It's
honestly very strange to me.
I just feel with all of the observations we have of Mars if there was life there we would know already. It's just hard to fathom how we wouldn't know
already. It seems staged to me.
I don't BELIEVE it's staged, but it feels
that way sometimes. I have to believe what's in front of my eyes. So I have to believe NASA landed
Curiosity on Mars and that they're honest. But I still have this feeling back inside my mind that everything is somehow artificial or unreal. Just
bits and pieces of things I read now and then lead me to wonder. Nothing substantial or empirical. This is why it's just a feeling. This is why if
asked in-person I'll have to say that NASA is our most reliable source of information. And I'll admit that if they say Curiosity landed then Curiosity
I just get the sense sometimes that they don't want to know if life is on Mars. Sort of like how flat earthers might have a confirmation bias and try
to avoid anything that contradicts it. I mean, the only real life detection experiment was the Viking Levin experiment. Since then pretty much
nothing. That's the best they can do about detecting life on Mars in 35 years. Nothing.
Reminds me how we landed on the moon and then.... nothing.
They could have worked on much more thorough life detection experiments and sent them to Mars. But no, nope. You can say this is reasonable because
the first experiments on Viking failed to detect life. However, it was not a complete failure. Gilbert Levin still thinks they detected life. I think
something is going on deeper inside the human level psyche. Something anthropocentric. I remember reading a few years ago a study. In the study they
concluded that people who're more likely to think life is elsewhere are less anthropocentric than those who think life elsewhere is less likely. If I
could remember the details of the study I'd link it here, but I cannot. My dumb animal brain.
