cranky Tendrils, Transparencies, Threads 2005 Feb 12
     ... Martians ...
"The 2004 photos of Mars have shown conclusively that the martian spheres(blueberries) have associated with them, in the embedding material and loose on the surface of Meridiani, a type of tendril. The tendrils are substancial sized, and have a double helical or spiral tessellation pattern internally in some, with possibly random varigated coloration markings on the outer covering(possibly two types of objects looking similar)of some. Some are marked by annular rings of tonal variation along the length. Others have a concentric ringed 'bullseye' pattern centered at the mid-range showing a matched pattern from the center point. They are found passing through the spheres or located near them. Some are embeddedin the bedrock material. Others are lying freely on the soil particulate surface, some elevated by support at one end, and still others are self supported in midair issuing from the soil at one end."

     ... Martians ...
"This is an excellent image of a sea urchin found by Opportunity on Sol 222. The 'beak' and shell (or 'test') can be seen very easily. The geometric shape of the beak is clear, the radial patterns of the shell are clear and all radiate from the beak. The lines and pattern of the shell are indisputable. When will NASA finally admit that they have clear proof of life on Mars? My research has shown since February 2004 that they have fossils of all types of marine life -- urchins, trilobites, crinoids, squid, shrimp, and other complex life forms."

cranky The Case for Fossils on Mars 2004 Jul 10
     ... Martians ...
"While there has been a great deal of controversy lately about the subject, I have amassed a substantial body of data that clearly supports the fact that MER-B (Opportunity) has discovered fossil remains on Mars. In particular, the 'blueberries' are the fossil remains of a type of sea urchin, similar to fossils found on Earth. Examination of the rock and material around the crater (nicknamed Eagle Crater by NASA and JPL scientists) shows other, far more advanced life forms as well, including trilobites, squids, eurypterids, crinoids, and other ancient species."

cranky Search for the Mars-Earth Connection 2002 May 13
     ... Martians . archaeology . extraterrestrials ...
"It is my belief that Mars was once a beautiful, fertile planet capable of sustaining life, much like our own, until some cataclysmic, global event changed everything. I believe that the survivors went searching for another planet, on which to live, and that they chose the Earth. We are their descendants. They were an advanced civilization who brought their technology with them. Upon reaching Earth, they proceeded to build the same type structures that were familiar to them on Mars. That way, if there were more survivors they'd recognize the structures and know where the others were."

"This is where we come from! Mars! My latest research has led me to a radical change in my belief as to where we originate from. To make clear my beliefs, We have been visited by an advanced race of humans. This is clearly evident from the pyramids, Stonehenge 1,2, and 3. The knowledge of the planets, The Mayan calendar, the knowledge of precession, the endless mysterious gigantic monoliths and ancient astronomical temples, to name just a few. Our ancestors as I will call them, are in my opinion exactly the same as us humans today. Our ancestors originated from Mars. Mars is Nibiru!"

     ... Martians ...
"I've brought these images to the attention of several astrobiologists and the general opinion is that they are probably just dunes. Also, I've discovered that in two of the images- M0001395 and FHA01667, the sunlight is coming in from the opposite direction which means that the features which I believed were holes are actually round mounds. Still, I believe that there could very well be large animals on Mars for the simple reason that nature keeps surprising us."

cranky Cydonian Imperative 2001 Oct 05
     ... Martians . extraterrestrials ...
"The presence of possible alien artifacts on Mars is one of the most provocative enigmas confronted in the history of science. The following pages explore this possibility from political, social, anthropological and epistemological perspectives. While The Cydonian Imperative is necessarily an exercise in speculation, it is also an ideal format in which to explore the very real possibility of discovering extraterrestrial intelligence in the near future. The Mars Global Surveyor, currently orbiting Mars, has extended its mapping mission and we can only hope that Cydonia will be reimaged. Nevertheless, NASA has announced a new Mars orbiter to be launched in 2005 which will carry a camera with resolution greatly exceeding that of the Surveyor. While it is likely that a definitive test for artificiality must await a manned mission to Mars, the 2005 excursion promises to teach us a great deal--but only if NASA can be persuaded to take Cydonia seriously. In that spirit, this site is dedicated to unbiased inquiry and the pioneering curiosity that has brought us to the point in history in which indirect contact with extraterrestrial intelligence has become possible."

crankiest Martians known quantum physics 2001 Jul 21
     ... Martians . conspiracy . quantum mechanics ...
"Martians are in the middle of the way between terrestrial science and religion. They are not one thing nor another. Both science and religion separate the subject from the object. Martians don't. Scientific method as known on Earth, for instance, separates the observer from the phenomenon, taking for granted the premise that the phenomenon is something that exists by itself. It assumes that the phenomenon is something that you can put in a lab, measure, quantify, and repeat exhaustively as much as needed in order to elaborate a theory or enunciate a theorem. Martians, however, have a different agenda. They know the laws of quantum physics very well, and they apply its rules to anyone trying to investigate them, either on Mars or on Earth. They are like mercury: you can't 'catch' them with your hands. They flow off your hands right under your nose. They have the ability to read your thoughts so easily that you could say it's just like walking or drinking a glass of water for them. From the Martian point of view, it's something very trivial."

cranky Face on Mars Critique 2001 Mar 31
     ... Martians ...
"Too many thousands of popular Web pages on 'Face on Mars.' Scientific journals remain silent. It is Fine-Art which stands beyond and above Science and yet ordinary people can assess and interpret those precious images from Mars. When with great expertise JPL/MSSS got this valuable image we became astonished. 'This is not a face,', everybody yelled. DiPietro included, but he said that sunset images were needed to confirm Viking's positive photos, while experts started to orthorectify and get the best of what incorrectly was assumed to be a 'poor' image. Not 'poor' at all, we see by now; just loaded with a 'Martian riddle.'"

"By 2000 September important new advances in understanding the Museum of Monuments in Cydonia were made. We will emphasise here the 'artistic content' in the two most intriguing Monuments: 'humanoid' and 'face.' It all started by recognising an important discovery made by Eric Crew. In its merely qualitative content it became clear that Monuments 'Face,' 'Humanoid' and 'Tholus' have to be identified with planets Mars, Earth and Venus, respectively: ..."

     ... Martians . skepticism ...
"Tom Van Flandern has posted a rectified version of the Mars Global Surveyor 'Face' image ... This version was constructed by Mark Kelly, a computer graphics specialist. ... If Kelly's reconstruction is accurate, it seems there can be little doubt that this landform is an intentional representation of a face, although perhaps a humanoid rather than strictly human face. But how accurate is it? This article addresses that question with a comparison of his reconstruction with the two Viking images taken by the Viking Mars orbiter in 1976."

"On April 5, 1998, the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft performed a specially-planned maneuver to photograph the 'Face on Mars.' Having successfully imaged the 'Face' on its first attempt, two additional maneuvers were used to observe other purported 'artificial' features: the 'City' (a cluster of small mountains west-southwest of the 'Face') and the 'City Square' (a group of four small hills surrounded by the larger mountains of the 'City')."

"Subsequent to this release, some people have argued, mostly in the lay literature, that the face-like hill is artificially shaped. Although their argument has been expanded to a host of nearby features, none commands public interest like the 'Face.' This page will provide interested persons with both the raw Viking images, transformed to GIF format, and a brief tutorial (with examples) of image processing techniques applied to create 'better looking' images."

"Like many others I was captivated by the images being sent back to Earth. Unlike many others I immediately started seeing little things that did not make sense to me, faces and shapes of small creatures in the sand. At first I had to assume they were all optical illusions, I've always been a big supporter of NASA and could not believe they would hide the truth about something this big. But these images have convinced me that extant life on Mars is a reality."
