In the next three months possibly scientists are going to spread news of dogs and cats being on the Red Planet.

I don't know why humans think that life in Space would resemble life on Earth, "people" in other Galaxies will look like humans, even speak English... Lol.
Flora and fauna would be like on the Earth too.
Perhaps we are overlooking something because we focus on things that are familiar and present on Earth, and evolution is based on knowledge and comprehension?
There is so much we don't know because we didn't experience it or fathom. Do living organisms need oxygen and water? Maybe not...

Pareidolia.

But there could possibly be simple forms of life on Mars. Or there may have been at one time.

Here we go again. Wake me when the little green lights start lifting off, headed to Earth in giant cookie jars with screw off lids.

Some people believe this is where human beings originated (Mars). There is supposedly proof of this of some kind that exists...I remember listening to an interview and they touched on this very briefly, I will try to look for it again, If I recall correctly, it was like an ancient scroll, written on some kind of fabric that was metallic but thin like paper...I will have to look for that interview again.

Insects are complex life, composed of tens of millions of specialized cells. Insects, just like people have nervous systems, eyes, digestive tracts, hearts and thus circulation, mouths, reproduce sexually. Mars is a hostile world in that it has no magnetic field that protects the surface of the world from charged particles that originate in the sun. Mars, because of the lack of a magnetic field, has 1/1000 of Earth's atmosphere. That means it is cold on the surface of the Red Planet. Most of what atmosphere there is takes the form of carbon dioxide, CO2. Insects, as we know them, need food and water. That means a food chain which means sustainable resources. Insect life on Mars is an extraordinary claim. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, to quote Carl Sagan.

Absence of proof is not proof of absence. Could there be life on Mars? Yes. I would think that no life will be found on the surface of the planet. I think any life, and that life I think would be simple life no more complex than bacteria ( which can too be complex life), will be found in volcanic vents and tubes that might still have some heat down in the deeps and provide protection from solar radiation.

Oh, good grief. I have nothing to do with this nonsense. There may have been, and possibly still is simple life such as bacteria or single cell life on Mars. But the idea that humans originated on Mars is idiotic.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panspermia

Mars once had liquid water on the surface. As they say in astronomy, where there is water, there is potential for life. Let's assume for moment that bacteria existed on Mars. Early in the solar system, there were much chaos with asteroids flying everywhere and hitting the moon, earth, and Mars. Some of the impacts were so great that the ejected debris reached escape velocity and traveled to outer space and landed on other planets. Some scientists are floating the idea that life on earth may have been seeded by bacteria-containing rocks from outer space.

If so, Mars is a strong candidate for this, and probably the strongest.

Good reason to search the Moon for ancient rocks from the other planets.
