Earth, Ancient Egypt--Mars?
Name: Eisenhower J High
1) Does anyone have a map of Mars?
2) Does Mars have any similarities with Earth? I watched this show and they
showed that face they found on Mars is the same as the Sphinx in Egypt... is
it true? Are we the extinct Martians? Is there any Scientific explanation?
I saw it on a show called "Ancient Mysteries".
1) There are some maps of Mars that have been pieced together from shots
taken by various probes. A reference librarian or NASA Spacelink here on
NEWTON could get you information.
2) The show Ancient Mysteries is very inauthentic. There is not any
evidence that there is now or ever was life on Mars. The face on Mars is
not apparent in any of the close photos. This kind of inaccurate program-
ming is worse than lying. We are the results of millions of years of
evolution from little single celled animals that adapted to Earth. There is
very little evidence that even our ancestors, those original cells, could
have come from anywhere else. Mars is not likely.
