It also reasonable to assume that there once was life (or maybe still is)...and EVEN to speculate that life here on Earth might have actually originated from Mars.
Those are things real scientists do actually take into consideration. This is why we went to Mars, checking sediment layers (at Mt. Sharp) where we can literally view the history of Mars laid out in front of us and see what as going on there in the past.
HOWEVER, looking at images of rocks where some rocks might "look like a face", "wire" etc.etc. is NOT scientific at all - it's total bunk/pseudo-science.
It would be much more interesting to speculate WHAT (and if anything) would be left if, say, there was a civilization many millions of years back..but it's likely that any trace would be entirely gone. Look here on Earth, what do you see from a hypothetical civilization MILLIONS of years back? NOTHING in the slightest.
Do you seriously think that we send a lander up there, and by incredible coincidence we find million year old artifacts right below the rover's wheels? No chance in hell.
