The photos of a Buddha like statue that was captured by NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars is setting wildfire on the internet lately. Although the figure was already seen before, but new images that were provided online gave a clearer detail of the subject. The images, however, lead to some intriguing questions about the existence of intelligent life, ancient relics and artefacts in Mars.
A number of Web sites that focuses on UFO's are convinced that the photo is a sign of intelligent life form. Of course the most likely explanation for this sighting is that the statue like figure is just an ordinary rock formation that resembles something people made here on Earth. However, some UFOlogists contradicts this.
"This photo alone should be enough to convince the United Nations that intelligent life once existed on Mars," Scott Waring of UFO sightings daily said, a self proclaimed UFOlogist. "NASA doesn't want anyone to know the truth, because they will be asked to share the info and technology that they have found,"
According to reports, Scott Waring was actually telling the truth when he mentioned that the statue was seen before. However, he was wrong that when he said that it was never seen up close. Exactly a year ago NASA posted and revealed the statue image in a group of rock formation in Mars, dated Oct. 7, 2014.
The Martian Statue is actually a good example of pareidolia. It is a quirk of the human brain that makes us see the faces that doesn't actually exist. "The same phenomenon that makes some people see the face of Jesus in burnt toast and bunnies in clouds. In the case of Mars, pareidolia makes us see Bigfoot, parrots, flowers and faces in the otherwise barren orange landscape." DNews space producer Ian O'Neill said.
