Re: Let’s Talk
LOL Shade!!! I love how you gave a play by play response to each of us.. that made me chuckle! Hope you are having fun at work! (I'm not being bitter or sarcastic.. i seriously hope you enjoy your job)!
Killer: I know there is ice on Mars but that does not automatically equate to life. NASA is trying to develop a drill that can go down 1-2 metres to potentially encounter water. I mean if there's ice on the surface of Mars, then there must be water at the subsurface of Mars right? It would be ideal to get to the subsurface of Mars because then we would have a complete thermal profile. We just can't get to it. Also, there is no scientific evidence for life CURRENTLY existing there. Astronomers have thought that maybe with the space probes, they've been looking in the wrong places for life… and that may be true but based on the information they've gathered so far, they can't find anything. Another issue is that we haven't been able to get a microscope up there that is capable of seeing bacteria. Something that may happen in the near future with new Rovers and new technologies is to be selective and bring back specific samples from Mars to study here on Earth.
As far as why we are different from other animals on this planet… its a simple answer of adaptation. If intelligent life ever existed on Mars and intelligent life existed on Earth.. it's impractical to say that we were the exact same. It just doesnt happen. Organisms develop differently. They adapt and mutate based on what is necessary for a species to survive. I'll think of a really ridiculous example to try and get a point across… say some species of giant man eating birds existed. These giant man eating birds feed on only the tallest of humans because they are most easily accessible to pick off from the sky. Being short means being safe. So over time the human species would adapt to be shorter… a natural defense against the man eating birds. Similarly the man eating birds would then adapt over time to effectively be able to eat the short humans as well. It snowballs until either 1 species goes extinct, or both species manage to live together in a predator/prey situation that is in natural equilibrium. Another thing to mention is… well.. look at how different humans are amongst eachother. I'm sure you look different from your aunt who looks different from your friends and they all look different from one another.
Ok now pyramids. I've recently done a lot of studying on Mars/the solar system/etc.. while I don't claim to know everything, I think I have a fairly solid foundation of knowledge on the topic. I'm only human and I do make errors when writing stuff like this off the top of my head, but I have sources I can refer to after the fact for verification. Not once did I come across anything that says we found pyramids on the surface of Mars. I have learned about what's called the “face of mars” … from a distance it looks exactly like a fossilized human face… upon further investigation and detailing with a better camera and lighting… we now know it's nothing more than volcanic rock. Can you give me a name for the pyramids you say are on Mars? Or something to go by so I can read up on it? Please don't give me a wikipedia link either. I'm just curious because I've never heard of that.
