Strange things are out there. Surely you all remember when we posted this a few years ago: First, Face on Mars. Now, Arrow on Titan. NASA tried to explain it all away, but questions linger. Then the Daily Mail, a tabloid which is the UK’s second biggest-selling daily newspaper, gave us more news last year about which we wrote Obama’s Face on Mars!
Now, adding to the ever-increasing bewilderment, that same tabloid has this astonishing headline: Alien hunters discover a ‘PYRAMID’ on Mars and claim the ‘near-perfect’ structure was built by an ancient civilisation. The story has generated over three hundred comments at the tabloid’s website. Here are some excerpts from the news story, with bold font added by us:
In their latest bizarre claim, conspiracy theorists say they have found a replica of one of Egypt’s Great Pyramids on Mars. Citing the ‘near-perfect design and shape’, they say the pyramid could be evidence that an ancient civilisation once lived on the red planet
YouTube channel, ParanormalCrucible, used video footage taken by Nasa’s Curiosity Rover on May 7 to back up its claims. ‘None of the Curiosity Rover’s subsequent photos taken at 20 to 30 sec intervals in the following few minutes and the subsequent photos hours later, included the object,’ wrote UFO site Exopolitics. ‘It appears that the Nasa operators of Curiosity deliberately chose not to take another photo or zoom in on the pyramid. ‘If they however did so, none of these subsequent photos were released to the general public.’
The Daily Mail links to some dubious places, so we’ll let you click over there if you want to pursue their sources. But they certainly make this sound like a NASA coverup! Then we’re told:
ParanormalCrucible goes further, claiming the ‘near perfect design and shape’ means the pyramid is: ‘the result of intelligent design and certainly not a trick of light and shadow’.
Aaaargh!! Intelligent design! It certainly looks like it from the NASA photograph which adorns our post. We copied it from the newspaper, assuming it’s not copyrighted. Let’s read on:
But the story strikes a note with conspiracy theorists who believe that civilisations, including our own, have secretly visited Mars and established colonies there.
In November, a woman named ‘Jackie’ called into American radio station, Coast to Coast AM, with a ‘confession’ that she had witnessed suited men running on the red planet in 1979. Jackie said she was working as part of a ‘downstairs’ team downloading telemetry from a Viking Lander when she saw the humans via live feed. ‘I wonder if you could solve a 27-year-old mystery for me,’ she asked the presenter. ‘That old Viking rover was running around. ‘Then I saw two men in space suits – not the bulky suits we normally used, but they looked protective. They came over the horizon walking to the Viking Explorer.’
Jackie’s story sounds credible, doesn’t it? What else is NASA hiding from us? The news continues:
According to Jackie, six other Nasa workers saw the two humans walking on the red planet’s surface. Jackie’s claim follows a similarly bizarre theory by physicist Dr John Brandenburg who believes an ancient civilisation on Mars was wiped out by a nuclear attack from another alien race.
That guy must know what he’s talking about — he’s got a book listed at Amazon: Life and Death on Mars: The New Mars Synthesis. Back to the Daily Mail for one last excerpt:
Dr Brandenburg says ancient Martians known as Cydonians and Utopians were massacred in the attack – and evidence of the genocide can still be seen today. He claims his theory could explain the Fermi Paradox – namely why, if the universe is abundant with life, we haven’t heard anything from anyone else yet. He warns, though, that we need to be fearful of an attack on our own planet, and should mount a manned mission to Mars to know what we’re up against.
Wow — this is really exciting news! We’ll be watching for updates, so stay tuned to this blog!
