Images taken from NASA’s Martian rover show what looks eerily like a long bone in the ground, which the vehicle had just run over. The bone looks suspiciously like a human’s femur – or thigh – bone, buried in Mars’ red dust. Conspiracy theorists now believe NASA intentionally tried to run it over and destroy in an attempt to keep the secret under wraps.
Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring was the first to pick up on the supposed bone and has called NASA out for apparently being hypocritical.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “I found this fossilised bone on Mars this week and it has been run over by the Mar rover.
“Now scientists at NASA often say how careful they are not to hurt or destroy their chances of finding life on Mars and yet, we see the evidence of the rovers tire marks treading over this ancient fossil as if it were nothing.
“If a person had found this at a park or beach it would turn into an investigation into a murder since it looks a lot like a leg bone.
“But since it is Mars, NASA makes it into their personal road, driving over and ignoring any real evidence of life on Mars.”
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.
