Edgar Rice Burroughs is a famous Arthur, im sure everyone has heard of Tarzan, and after the recent John Carter Movie (which was great btw!) now people have probably been introduced to his John Carter of Mars Series starting with the Princess of Mars and so on..... there are several books in the series.....

Anyway, he wrote the first book in the series in 1912....  Mr. Burroughs died in 1950....  I saw the movie first, was intrigued and read the first book the Princess of Mars, and now I've started on the second book Gods of Mars...  They're great books, very entertaining, the second doesn't come close to the first in my opinion but still very good...  Long story short if anyone is familiar with the work of Richard C. Hoogland at enterprisemission.com and have seen the images in his books about mars...  you start to wonder if it's all just a coincidence or what??

Burroughs of the early 1900's paints a near perfect in comparison picture to a theory someone like Hoogland would come up with today..  The super thin atmosphere on mars, the ancient ruins, the barren seas that were once magnificient oceans...  The picture and history painted by Burroughs seems to match what Hoogland has pictures of, such as things that look like ancient buildings and ruins!!!  Not to mention Cydonia...  Then there's pictures on the internet of things that very clearly look like trees on Mars!  And the most intriguing coincidence to me was when I was reading Gods of Mars the other day and a new batch of characters popped up called the Black Pirates of Barsoom....  now these people are apparently fierce warriors who travel to mars from one of mars's moons to make war on the people on mars (the therns).  Does that seem strange to anyone else???  Ever heard of Phobos?!?!  The moon of mars that is misshapen and is the ONLY moon anyone knows about that isn't a sphere, but instead is more like an oval and has very strange markings that looks like rivets that many believe could be a hollow spaceship and not a moon at all!!!!!  And then you have a writer in the 1900's describing a warrior race from a moon of mars, it's all very strange!  And it makes you wonder......did Burroughs know something the rest of us didn't?  With discoveries like frozen water on mars, organic molecules found, and all the very strange photo's from mars showing ruins and canals.........could any of the places and stories in Burrough's novels be based on any ancient martian facts that the public just doesn't know about....?

What do you think?

I think Burrugh's Mars as I read it is a very different place from what we find in fact.  You take a few similarities and blow them out of proportion and ignore the differences.

Not really, there are enough anomalies on mars that if it isn't populated now I think you'd have to agree that it was most likely populated some time in it's ancient past...  to some degree.  There's no disputing the evidence on Cydonia, there was some type of civilization there once.

I'm skeptical; the "Face on Mars" is now known to be people jumping to conclusions, as also with the "pyramids."  Time will tell, but don't hold your breath.

I think Richard C Hoagland briefings to the UN and Nasa about Cydonia are very convinving, there is more at Cydonia then just the face and the pyramids...  When you take a look at all the mathematics he discovered intertwined in Cydonia it's just amazing.  The hidden message he found in the math about the 30 degree line I believe it is was a pretty amazing revelation it seemed like.  I don't remember the scientific terms, it's been a while since I seen it...  But the whole pyryamid/triangle inside a sphere/circle and how it always leads to a celestial bodies center of energy somewhere on the 30 degree line on the object, whether it be the gigantic extinct volcano on mars, the volcano in Hawaii on earth, the red spot on jupiter, or what have you...  Really cool stuff...

The face and pyramids weren't people jumping to conclusions, there's clear symmetry with the face... and the pyramids are arranged in 5 points that you could clearly trace into a star/pentagram, it isn't random.  Nature doesn't create patterns like that.  They aren't random mounds in the middle of no where, where they stand is precise and artificial.

I have seen and photographed some inexplicable symmetrical patterns within nature... so it does happen

You might just as well ask did H. G. Wells know something that we didn't, since his premise- that the Martians decided to come here when their own planet became uninhabitable- is not dissimilar to Mr. H's theories. Except for the taking over by force, of course. But if they came in the ancient past, they probably wouldn't have needed to do that. I'm afraid i don't really understand all mr. H's ideas about geometry and so on, I'm, afraid, so I couldn't comment there.

He knew how to paint? If I painted a picture of the earth flat, does that make it flat?

Edit: I can't take Richard C. Hoagland seriously not with his laughable space Nazis.

The "Sleeping Ute Mountain" in Ute territory near Cortez, Colorado, is an astonishing example of a perfectly natural formation.

Listen man....  when a 5000 year old book says someone/something went to mars and built an image of his face on mars....and then a face on mars is found!  Something, some form of intelligent life was there at some point in time...
