Fine! this new theory--and we can only call it that--lends credence to the concept that there was not just life but intelligent life on Mars. The
next question is why are we here and they are apparently gone? We could suggest that a natural degeneration of an atmosphere on Mars slowly killed on
life there and in some fashion life was transferred here. Or we could wonder if that perhaps they was an event that made Mars inhospitable in short
The late maverick astronomer Tom van Flandern in his book, Dark Matter Missing Planets & New Comets, suggested that Mars died because a wayward
satellite in an orbit around its equator fell to the surface creating the Valles Marineris, resulting in the great scar halfway around it.
In my limited way, I maintain that technologically intelligent being of Mars caused their own planet to suffer by bringing a captured asteroid in too
close and due to a colossal accident or great miscalculation, the body fell to the surface, starting a swift planetary decline. The survivors came
Phobos, the larger existing moon of Mars, has been put into place into about the same orbit as where the former body would have occupied. Phobos,
with its several fields of mysterious grooves (that NASA will never let you fully view in their full context) is evidence for the same type of
manipulation of a large body that must be done to position it for a close orbit around Mars. My view is that Phobos was placed in its close position
around the Red Planet by the dying Martians as a monument to themselves, to the planet, and as a sign to us, former Martians.
