Did Viking find life on Mars in 1976 ?

An international team of scientists believes NASA found alien life on Mars over 35 years ago.

During the Viking mission the lander conducted an experiment that involved analyzing soil samples for signs of life. While the results at the time indicated geological rather than biological activity, new studies in to the data collected have convinced some scientists that what the lander found was indeed evidence of life forms.

Biologist Joseph Miller is one of scientists involved in the new research. "The ultimate proof is to take a video of a Martian bacteria," he said. "They should send a microscope - watch the bacteria move. On the basis of what we've done so far, I'd say I'm 99 percent sure there's life there."

"New analysis of 36-year-old data, resuscitated from printouts, shows that NASA found life on Mars, an international team of mathematicians and scientists conclude in a paper published this week."

if this is true then christianity and God would be fake. this is a perfect oppirtunity for atheists to argue the point of god with christians Why is it assumed that Christianity being proven false would intrinsically eliminate God from the equation? I am myself an atheist Hindu, and thus I do not believe in either God or Christianity; however, it is absurd to argue that the discovery of life on Mars would disprove either false belief (I do not mean to offend Christians; this is simply my own view).

Speaking as a card carrying (Library card, anyway) atheist, the presence of life in any form on another planet would not disprove god, or the Christian God for that matter. Well-stated. I did not read your post before writing my own...

Speaking as a card carrying (Library card, anyway) atheist, the presence of life in any form on another planet would not disprove god, or the Christian God for that matter. In this forum the evidence of God would only prove that all the believers in christian religion and all religions in that matter would be up against the "Where`s the Proof Wall " As it should be ! Where`s the Beef ! WHere`s E.T. ? Where`s anything that goes bump in the night ? One should live there life in the belief system of Im the best thing that ever happened to me !

Back on topic, anyone actually think they found life on Mars? Personally, I do not.

I'm sure there is life there. I am sure there is life in most places. Life like us or say ducks... not so certain. Surely somewhere in the universe there will be. But not in our solar system anyway!

I think this might have been what Lost_Shamen was talking about on another thread about a month or so ago....I missed the context in which he was talking about it, it intrigued me then, but I hadn't really heard about it before. Thanks for posting it, enjoyable read Hey Sky Scanner, Yes I was talking about this a couple months ago. I'm quite sympathetic to the claim in light of new information. The tests by the Viking landers couldn't and were not designed to prove life existed, they were designed to detect Life if it was there. The Labeled Release experiment was the only test that met it's pr... [More]

how would this disprove god? first we rly need to ask are self "wat is god"? is it literally a man in the sky/space that makes crap because he is bored? or is it some kind of ultimate force in the universe that can be attributed to all things we can touch, taste, feel, breath and see? if its the second then well i doubt anything we find can disprove that.
