First, it was the canals that must have been made by an intelligent life form. Many years later, it was “little green men” visiting earth in their spaceships with plans to conquer the human race.

Afterward, we viewed a picture taken by the Viking Orbiter of a distinct “Face on Mars”, an enormous land feature that resembled a human-like face, which was probably built the way humans built an object such as The Sphynx thousands of years ago on Earth.

Very recently, NASA’s Spirit rover took a photo of the Martian surface that appeared to have caught a ‘Bigfoot’ in mid stride. And not too long ago, the Mars Express spacecraft took an areal shot of a great ‘smiley face’ showing its countenance out towards space.

And now, we can add the photograph of a ‘cricket’ to the list of things we have seen on Mars.

mars1It is kind of hard to see, so you need to use your imagination a bit (which is THE reoccurring theme of the history of Earth-like living things on Mars.) Look at the circular doo-hickey protruding from the Mars Rover in the lower right hand corner of the photo.  Then look about 3/4 of an inch directly to its left, and notice the black spec. That spec could be anything, right? Well, the real “evidence” presents itself when you take a look at another snapshot captured by the Mars Rover (presumably a short time later) and see if you can spot the black spec in that photo.

mars2Holy Bejezus! The black spec is gone!  What could have possibly happened? According to Rob Clay, a regular citizen who has an interest in looking at photos taken from the Mars Rover (and who is quite possibly a prodigy of Richard Hoagland) states that “if something was present in one photo and not in another taken at the same location [at around the same time], then it must have ‘moved’.” Can’t argue with that logic, can we? I mean, photographs are always clear and accurate, they represent concrete proof, they are never subject to technical glitches or are ever manipulated by the environment they were taken in, and they qualify as some of the best scientific evidence that humans can quantify, right?

Rob Clay continues:

“I have found something very interesting and shows that there is life on Mars; not a big creature by any means, but it does appear to have legs and look like an insect. I have called it a ‘cricket’.”

Life on Mars has been proven by Rob Clay with just two photographs. What further evidence do we need? This discovery clearly thrusts Rob Clay to the top of the list for Nobel Prize candidates for 2009.

I ask all of you: what do you think the black spec is, and what is your theory behind the difference in the two photographs?  Let’s see who has an imagination that is on the same level as Rob Clay’s.

    Immagination, eh? Okay, here goes.

    The Sun is clearly high in the sky (high enough to be well out of frame) and slightly to the right, as can be deduced from the shadows of the rocks and how the doo-hickey is lit. Also, the black spec is elongated generally in the direction of the Sun and is located on the shady side of a small dune. Obviously, it’s not an object on the ground, but the distorted shadow of an object in the air! Cricket my eye, this evidence clearly points to a bumble bee!

    And if there is a bumble bee in the air, just out of the frame in the second picture, one must ask if there might be other bumble bees in other pictures. Sure enough, there’s one at the very top edge of the first picture, on the left side!

    It just goes to show how unqualified people can come up with the silliest of explanations for things that are obvious to the trained experts. Cricket?! Please!

    First picture, second picture, whatever. You know what I mean. That place is swarming with bees.

    Could it just be dust? There’s wind on Mars, right? Maybe some dust got blown onto the lens, and later blown off? Or perhaps it’s dust inside the camera that got jiggled around when the rover moved (as it clearly did between the 2 photos).

    Cricket? Bumble bee? For crying out loud. It’s obviously just a gnat on the camera lens.
