Just go to Youtube and search for Mars anomalies and you find hundreds of pics of what look like ruins. Many are just weird shaped rocks but not all. Some posters can even prove many images are photo shopped.

We aren't ready for the truth, at least that's what the Deep State believes.

You can also go to Google earth and find plenty of things that look like ruins here on earth -- but aren't.

There are plenty of things on Earth that look like they were created by intelligent design -- but they're just weird shaped rocks. The Giants Causeway in Ireland, for example; The Honeycomb Rocks in West Virginia; and the Moqui Marbles in Utah. These are found under water, too; the Bimini Road, for example.

Also, there are many naturally-occurring forms on Earth that appear to be sculptures but aren't; my favorite is probably the amazing Badlands Guardian:

Badlands Guardian Indian Head ~ Hudson Valley Geologist

Then there are pseudofossils:

Without direct examination, I'm hard pressed knowing how one would decide from a photo taken at a distance on another planet whether something is just a weird shaped rock or something else.

More intriguing than the deformed rock in this photo to me is what looks like river beds. Looks to me something liquid ran through that area at some point.

Anyone else ever hear that Rush Limbaugh comment from the 1990s about Mars once having life and what became of them? I cannot recall the episode number, but google knows, what he suggested is pretty bizarre if true.
What would that nut know about life on Mars? Who cares what he thinks anyway?

Looks like I am stalking you because thats 2 comments of yours I have quoted, but I am not :-) By knowing the science of the cameras, it is possibly to make deductions about the objects in the pictures. Distance and size can be determined and sometimes 3D images can be created from multiple images too. Images using different filters can show different rock characteristics.

The thing is... NASA Scientists use photos to determine an opinion so why shouldn't other people do that too? There are scientists out there who do not work for NASA and still have the same skills and experience as NASA scientists. NASA will often come out with a opinion on something which may not be correct, and use "possibly", "maybe", "appears to be" just like we do. Perhaps if you wish to believe conspiracy theories, they have better photos than we do, but if they dont have better images, then often the photos we get to see from space are pretty poor and blurry - even the ones in the PDS. They still make authoratative statements about stuff and we still believe it.

I agree that the photos we get to see from space are far more open to interpretation and there things which look like known structures, which are not. However, the photos taken by the rovers are far less open to interpretation and are used by science for decisions which, if wrong, could cause mission failure. These rover photos of nearby objects are often shown with really poor quality. Head on over to the Space forum for a thread where I have shown the kind of amazing quality the MER Pancam SHOULD give us - but isn't. Strangely, no-one commented though.

Well, if the Rovers did find something that definitely was proof of an advanced civilization at one time on Mars, like an old building or structure, would NASA allow those images to be seen by the public?

I HIGHLY doubt it, would cause too big a wave.

It's just some old weird rock out in the desert of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, or wherever this is being staged. Not on Mars.

I see no reason they would not. There is a high chance their budget would get an immediate increase.

It looks like a Lego. I would hate to step on that in my bare feet!

I never bought into that narrative, that NASA is so secretive about some knowledge for which the general public is better off being ignorant.
I think they may have, at times, kept quiet SOME eerie or unexplained things, but just to examine and discuss them first. And, having found nothing extraordinary, the issue died with the Administration - there was no reason to even discuss it further.

But by NOT discussing it, it becomes an "aha! they are hiding something" moment for some people.
