Mars: A Water World? Evidence Mounts, But Scientists Remain Tight-Lipped
By Leonard David

PASADENA, California -- Evidence that suggests Mars was once a water-rich world is mounting as scientists scrutinize data from the Mars Exploration rover, Opportunity, busily at work in a small crater at Meridiani Planum. That information may well be leading to a biological bombshell of a finding that the red planet has been, and could well be now, an extraterrestrial home for life.

There is a palpable buzz here at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California that something wonderful is about to happen in the exploration of Mars.

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

*shows how one can turn any thread into a religious or political debate*

Perhaps when the Bible says that God gathered all the water into one place....it
means exactly that...ALL of the water....perhaps he scooped up all the water from
Mars (and maybe Venus as well) to supply Earth with the water it needed.

If the more civilized countries take a trip to Mars together...will the less
civilized third world countries be jealous and demand some attention through
perilous means?

Bizarro! Nice Post! thumbsup.gif

So do you think if they do find life it
will be only microbial or something
more advanced?

These are amazing times we live in
aren't they?

Sorry to dissapoint everyone who hopes to find Humanoid life forms in space - that won't happen. The chance of alien life to evolve to be even remotely similiar to a human form is VERY, VERY slim.
On the other hand, maybe NASA will find a bunch of veggies sitting around playing poker  tongue.gif ...

The problem with  finding life, is that we can only see life as we know it.  We could be squishing some intelligent martian being, that is too small for us to see.  alien.gif

The only way we'll find something is if it's really obvious to us.  Some giant lizard being, with a phazer gun or something.

If you are talking about finding
"humanoid" life on Mars alone you may
be right.

But to say that this life has no chance
of existing in this massive universe is
foolish to say the least!

In our own galaxy there are about as
many stars as there are grains of sand on
all the beaches of the world... and
then in the universe there are as many
if not more galaxies as there are stars
in our own galaxy.

To think we are alone is foolish!

To believe this is the only planet in
the universe to evolve life is well..

I agree with Gazz. There's a VERY huge chance of other possible humanoid life out there.

The possibility of finding humanoid life which evolved similarly to human life (paired organs, 5 fingers, etc...) is so remote that I would consider such evidence to be indicative of a supernatural power.  Since the Christian Bible stated that God created all men in his image, I would have to consider whether this validates a claim for the Christian God.

But I'm still thinking that we'll only find bacterial fossils, if that.

If they find humanoids on Mars, will the Vatican send representatives to Mars to try and convert them to Christianity/Catholicism? Not trying to be sarcastic but think about it. Really.
