The artifact-like images showing up in the pictures captured by Mars Curiosity recently seem to suggest the possibility of a civilization once inhabiting the surface of the red planet. The pictures transmitted back to Earth from Mars have shown “engravings,” “a humanoid statue,” “ball bearings,” “a gearwheel” and a “thighbone” and the large stone that looks eerily like the Sphinx found here on Earth.
According to News.com.au on Oct. 28, this recent string of objects spotted on Mars are similar to what is found here on Earth from ancient civilizations. Are the ancient artifacts found on Earth and the recent images transmitted from Mars from a civilization that was far advanced in space travel? This isn’t too farfetched if you think about it.
An image that looks unbelievably like the Sphinx here on Earth has been seen on the surface of Mars and captured in a photo by Mars Curiosity. A video was posted on YouTube over the weekend that shows the image of a Sphinx-like monument that looks similar to what an ancient civilization built here on Earth. That video can be seen above.
Astrobiology reports that “Curiosity is now preparing to ascend its prime target — Mount Sharp (Aeolis Mons).” While robotic rovers have sent back plenty of interesting images so far, now that it is going into a different area, you never know what it will happen upon next.
NASA robotic rovers, Curiosity and Opportunity, continue to send images back to Earth with some images that don’t look like natural forms. This objects don’t seem to fit in with the rest of the red planet’s surface. Some look as if they were created by intelligent life, not by the wind and sand erosion that saturates the planet at times.
These pictures come back to NASA and they are released to the public online. It is the folks sitting at home and going over these pictures with a fine-tooth comb that often spot these odd images and report online what they have found. Some are far-fetched, but the image seen in the video above looks a lot like a stone creation similar to the Sphinx. It just seems too out of place to be created by the weather patterns on Mars.
The same goes for the latest engravings found on what looks like a piece of a stone Roman column on Mars. The skeptics call this “Pareidolia, which is the name for the ‘shortcut’ the human brain takes when it is interpreting the input of the eye.”
“Pareidolia” also explains how people see familiar objects when there are none, according to News.com.au. It is the same type of thing that happens when you see shapes in the clouds and your mind’s eye lets you see the elephant, flower, or a man’s foot! Your mind puts the image together and relates it to something you have in your memory.
Of course this is a possibility, but what about the graphics found in caves on Earth that depict visitors from another planet? They’ve found engravings of what looks like spaceships and human-like forms dressed in some type of astronaut suits from ancient times here on Earth.
It is not too off-the-wall to imagine that the space travelers depicted in the ancient engravings here on Earth could have created a civilization on Mars. It is possible that these objects seen in the images taken by the rovers on Mars are the ruins of that civilization. Or you could be seeing this as images that your mind’s eye is putting together. That’s all up to you to decide, but skeptic or not the images are somewhat thought provoking!
