The last couple of days I've been showing the enlargements of Mr. Paul McNamara in the United Kingdom of some of the strange things found in the following NASA image of the Mars spirit rover. You may want to refresh your memory of the original NASA image here:
With respect to these images, I cannot but help think we are looking at artificial things in both cases, or, possibly, in the first case, as a remote possibility, a fossil of some sort. But the regularity and rectilinearity of the objects in the last of the images seems to me to smack of a strong artificial possibility.
And this leads me to some thoughts. While our attention is diverted down here with so many problems on Earth - Iran, Europe, the Middle East, the financial crisis - we must not lose site of the fact there is much going on right over our heads, so to speak. If the images that Mr. McNamara has presented do show evidence of artificiality - and I think the reader is best left up to his or her own mind to decide on that - then we are looking at the ruins of a civilization, and very evidently, we are looking at something else: we're looking at a debris field. Once we have said that, then we are led to the question, debris from what? What sort of cataclysm could do this?
Here, until we actually go to Mars and put "boots on the ground" so to speak, we are left to conjecture a case from photographs, and ancient texts and myths. I've done my best in various books to show that there is significant textual evidence from millennia ago to suggest the idea that some sort of war was fought here in our own celestial neighborhood. Silly as it may sound, Mars may hold the key to our own past, and what may have gone wrong. As the world seems teetering on the brink of its own cataclysm, it would be a lesson in my opinion well worth learning.
In short, we must go to Mars.
