Found this. An intresting article that suggests that life on earth originally came from Mars and came to earth maybe in the form of a meteorite..


Earth Life Likely Came from Mars, Study Suggests By Mike Wall, Senior Writer | August 28, 2013 06:05pm ET Mars Hubble Photo NASA's Hubble Space Telescope snapped this shot of Mars on Aug. 26, 2003, when the Red Planet was 34.7 million miles from Earth. The picture was taken just 11 hours before Mars made its closest approach to us in 60,000 years. Credit: NASA/ESA View full size image We may all be Martians.
Evidence is building that Earth life originated on Mars and was brought to this planet aboard a meteorite, said biochemist Steven Benner of The Westheimer Institute for Science and Technology in Florida. An oxidized form of the element molybdenum, which may have been crucial to the origin of life, was likely available on the Red Planet's surface long ago, but unavailable on Earth, said Benner, who presented his findings today (Aug. 28; Aug. 29 local time) at the annual Goldschmidt geochemistry conference in Florence, Italy.

Mars is a planet rich in history and myth.. The planet known to the Greeks as Ares the son of Zeus. He delighted in violence and destruction and his parents detested him. Are such myths our memories of times past on Mars..Is Mars our mother planet.

Mars certainly has many secrets to give up. For anyone in doubt have a look at this extensive website

Well it is possible.. And it makes me wonder if this means that there is a high possibility that the Panspermia theory is a true phenomena..

Definitely food for thought..

Phage has posted other sources that I'm sure will have the right info, but to the point, the theory is that one of the ingredients necessary for creating an environment where life could begin may (note, may) have hit earth through meteorite activity. This is not the same as saying 'life' came from Mars, but an element necessary for sparking the whole thing off may have.

Not sure how everyone feels about that, but to me it seems to show how unlikely the spontaneous appearance of life on any planet really is - seems luck plays an awfully big part in the whole scheme of things.
