Pretty crazy discovery, maybe some disclosure will start now?

Disclosure about what??

It is sand that sort of looks like a parrot....

They spent six years working on this and concluded that's artwork of a parrot on Mars?

Sure it's a parrot! Just like this is an elephant on Mars. It's a typical habit of our eyes and brains making recognisable patterns out of anything.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Disclosure about what exactly? That an alien with a jumbo box of crayons is drawing really bad pictures on Mars?

2 Reasons I posted it

1."an anatomically correct, three-dimensional rendering of a parrot on Mars that is too accurate for chance.

So concludes an independent team of two geologists, three veterinarians and a sculptor"

2. "avian-shaped formation that exhibits a unique set of proportional features"

News.discovery.com doesn't usually write things like that unless they're decently backed.

That is all, rest of the posts are on you. I'm done on this one.

_Only...thanks for the link to the other post, awesome info.

Go figure, more hate and narrow mindedness on that post too.



for others...I put a comment on disclosure on there to rile you up (of course there is no such thing at this moment, nor will our government do it even if it were possible)...looks like you took the bait, suckers.

Paredolia.... the last picture shows all if it was a sculpture then no high resolution would be necessary.  Also the person pushing the subject is writing a book for profit. Seems like he has reason to convince people of the farce. Well that's my two bits worth anyways....

Was any of this post necessary ... no need to be defensive. You shared an article and it was discussed. I apologize for the discussion not going the way you had hoped but all in all it was discussed. Thank you for sharing the article.

Understandable, but if being defensive is unnecessary, so is making a mockery of the post. Two wrongs don't make a right.

Therefore, if one is okay, the other has to be too. So you decide, either only serious responses or the poster has the right to defend their position in a way they see fit. It can't be mockery and no response.

Also, if you saw my only other thread, it was brutal immediately, and I tried an experiment with the disclosure comment. I was just saying, it worked. Didn't need the suckers, though. I would apologize for calling them suckers, but they are the ones making a mockery of the post, relating to my prior point. Was it necessary in the first place.
