Experts and conspiracy theorists alike have been on the hunt for any semblance of evidence that life once existed on Mars. Now one prominent alien hunter believes he has discovered the elusive evidence. The UFO hunter has been perusing through NASA images from the space agency’s Martian rover, and believes he has found a fossil.
The object in question is eerily similar to an ammonite fossil – a common fossil found on Earth from a curled up shell from an ancient sea mollusc.
Scott C Waring discovered the ‘fossil’, and wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “I noticed this object near the rover looks very similar in shape to a snail.
“Here on Earth, Ammonites died out 66 million years ago, but lived as long ago as 200 million years ago.
“I believe that since it evolved on a different planet, its shape was effected by a different evolution involving different environmental influences.
“I’m confused at why the NASA rover didn’t want to examine it more closely, since it was hovering over some rocks nearby for several days.
“It would be most interesting to have a palaeontologist take a look at the object.”
This is not the first time apparent fossils have been found on Mars.
Another recent finding was that of a large black rock which was supposedly such strong evidence of alien life that NASA was accused of misleading the public.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog: “While looking at the front page of the Mars Science Laboratory website, I noticed that they placed a photo with a huge black fossil right on the freaking front page!
“How could anyone who has any experience at ancient fossils and artefacts have even possibly have missed that?
“NASA really doesn’t care about finding life, or proving that life once existed on other planets.
“They only want to drip feed the public boring science facts to satisfy the publics curiosity. Its called the trickle down theory and NASA perfected it.
“There is no doubt in my mind that this is a ancient fossil.”
However, sceptics and NASA would say the fossil and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.
This would mean that the Martian ‘fossil’ could just be a misshapen rock.
