JesseCuster Posted June 12, 2011 #576 Share Posted June 12, 2011 (edited) There may be fantastic and wonderful mysteries to discover on Mars and aren't we lucky to live in an age where we have satellites orbiting it and detailing the surface and remote controlled rovers that can wander the surface doing science experiments to further our understanding of Mars. But as long as people insist on keeping alive "mysteries" like this that have obviously been thoroughly debunked, then you'll never find the truth. For every genuine mystery of the universe, there are a hundred hoaxes, misreports, misinterpreted grainy footage of a lens flare, etc. And unless you can learn to recognise the BS, you'll never learn see the genuine articles, because you'll be overwhelmed by the rest of the crap. Being open minded beens being able to genuinely examine what appears to be interesting and mysterious, but it also means being able to say "Okay, I thought it was some sort of Mars station, but it's obviously some sort of data glitch combined with the anti-aliasing of blown up low resolution imagery as several people in this thread have shown conclusively" Saying "Yeah, but still, it might be a secret facility on Mars even though all the evidence suggests it's nowhere near as interesting" isn't open minded, because it is basically an admission that you favour explanations that emotionally satisfy you even if the evidence points to a dull prosaic interpretation of what we are looking at. Ignoring everything you are told is just as closed minded as believing everything you are told. Edited June 12, 2011 by Archimedes Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
