I do not think that everyone blindly accepts TPTB. Good try though. Great PR tactic.
What PR? You seem to think I have an ulterior agenda. I do not. My only agenda is my curiosity.
So if many explain exactly how they feel it is right? Science discovers new things every day, assuming that something is impossible in this case is
just denial. I said it was an hypothesis, a scientific guess with not enough evidence to be a theory. No one can be proven right or wrong by the
Proof is a tricky word in science.
What we have is years of study and observation vs a picture of something that looks like
The thing I don't get is why some prioritize that vague resemblance over all our scientific knowledge and common sense.
Believe me, I would LOVE for us to find life, any kind of life in our solar system. It is a big deal to me.
And because it's so important, I try to stay objective and not jump to unbased conclusions.
This article might help you to understand why I think it is possible to have a rodent type creature on Mars. Nature adjusts to the environment and
this can cause striking similarities between species.
Yes, I agree that that can happen. But in that case we are talking about lifeforms that, originally, come from a single evolutionary tree and both
born on earth. (as far as we know)
When we talk about mars, there are variables that are very very different from earth's (and there are similarities too, of course)
In mars life would have to have adapted to martian conditions.
And more so in MODERN mars. Which is a bit crap for life.
Like I said in another post. It is not an absolute
impossibility. But if everything we know tells us one thing, to believe the opposite just
because we saw a picture with a shape similar to a small rodent seems far-fetched.
