I would also like to think that there is life on Mars. However, two things must be said in clarification of that statement.
First, if there is, it is likely to be of a simple nature, either of a single celled nature, as suggested by other posters in the thread, or possibly
a moss or algae type. I recognise that the fantastic idea of a cocktail bar on mars, or indeed an entire city, is just exactly that, fantasy. It is
utter nonsense, as is the idea that the outrageously rich go to Mars on a regular basis.
Second, I would be over the moon of course, to find that there was or is some sort of complex life on mars, but I would be just as happy to discover
bacteria, viruses, and any other bloody lifeform on the red planet. From a scientific standpoint, I couldnt give a God damn for a city full of
hypothetical Martian drunkards, because my only interest in life on Mars, is that it adds weight to the possibility of life outside our solar system,
and adds to the mounting reasons for us to figure out how to move a vehicle at relativistic speeds, in order to reach other star systems and start
looking for our stellar neighbors.
