A rock formation on Mars has some debating whether or not intelligent life put a statue of Buddha there. This is just the latest in a series of claims that Earthly objects can be found on our neighboring planet.
In the picture shown here, a region of the Martian landscape can be seen to vaguely resemble a human form.
Scott C. Waring, a self-proclaimed UFOlogist, claims that the formation in the picture shows a “Stunning Martian God” that resembles the Earthly Buddha. On the website ufosightingsdaily.com, Waring writes that the new photograph should be enough to persuade the United Nations and NASA that intelligent life existed on Mars at some point.
I think we have seen this statue before, but never this close up. … (It) shows a face and head turned to its right, with breasts and a plump stomach, shoulders. The photo alone should be enough to convince the United Nations that intelligent life once existed on Mars, but NASA doesn’t want anyone to know the truth.
Huffington Post notes that the same group of rocks were the basis of an article at the same site a year ago titled “Sitting Statue Discovered On Mars”. The site also references Paranormal Crucible, a YouTube channel that went as far as enhancing the NASA photo and colorized it, bringing out some of the features that cannot be seen in the original picture.
This isn’t the first time someone has claimed to spot something on the red planet that would more likely be found on Earth. It has been claimed in the past that Bigfoot, a floating spoon and rats have all been said to be present on Mars, according to Discovery News.
Other recent space news includes a revelation that Mars likely had flowing water due to evidence found in Martian pebbles.
There is also talk of European and Russian Space Agencies’ efforts to colonize the moon.
