'Alien Skull' Spotted on Mars


NASA's Spirit Rover has spotted an object that some say looks like an alien skull: "One alien-spotter speculated: 'The skull is 15 cm with binocular eyes 5 cm apart. The cranial capacity is approximately 1400 cc. There appears to be a narrow pointed small mouth, so this creature most likely is a carnivore.' Another joked: 'The coronal ridge shows ample structure to support the musculature of antennae, although none are visible in this view. 'The nose area is broad and blunted as you would expect to see in a cold and windy landscape. Is he decapitated or is he buried up to his neck?'"

I guess THIS dude must have passed away.

In related news, the Virgin Mary has been spotted in a food griddle in Las Palmas, California.

  3. I was going to say it was an acient relative of Carrie Prejean, but why insult the potential ancient dead alien that way.

  5. I refuse to believe aliens look like this.
    Maybe, this was an alien that had work done. A dead alien found on a gay alien version of fire island.

  6. Reading this, and seeing the photo I was reminded of Pixar's A Bug's Life when the little Princess ant Dot says "but it's a rock!"

  7. While I would love to think this WAS a alien skull....its probably a Rock and the lighting is playing tricks with your eyesight...I see what they are could and couldn't be - there's no way to tell for sure - unless you were there to examine it. Tho I do think there is ALL kinds of life in the Universe. Billions of galaxies with billions of stars with Billions of planets...hell - If an alien ship could just once make itself known for sure....maybe it would finally silence these idiot religious freaks who think that we humans are MADE in Gods is probably teeming in the Universe. Shame we'll never know at the rate mankind is going we'll be lucky to live another 2-300yrs tops.

  8. "Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip, that started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship. The mate was a mighty sailin' man, the Skipper brave and sure. Five passengers set sail that day,for a three hour tour, a three hour tour."

    There is a way to tell 100% using logic

    mars recieves only 44% the amount of sun light that earth does and that is with barely any atmosphere at all. atmospheres filter out / reflect large amounts of sunlight

    The supposed eyesockets are way too small for a skull that size for earth life let alone a planet that recieves only 44% of the amount of light earth does.

    If, lets say the skull is of a long extinct form of life on mars when lets say mars might have had a real atmosphere vs the thinnnnnnnnnnnnnn barely there gases it now has then even less sun light would have reached the surface so the eye sockets would have to be even larger than something now having to have eye sockets 56% larger than comparitive eye sockets on earth.

  10. PS

    on aliens visiting earth

    The technology needed to travel between the vast distances between the stars (earth's closest neighbor is 4.35-4.37 light yrs away and since the speed of light is the limit for speed without getting into some form of god like tech beyond our understanding of physics making us look like cavemen) is so far beyond anything we have now it would rank as Level 4 tech while we are at best level 1-2. Level 4 tech for all intents and purposes would be like gods compared to us. Such beings in our galaxy with billions of stars let alone from another galaxy (20 times galactic size space between galaxies at least) out of billions of galaxies = their first off being able to even get here let alone being intrested in us who would seem like cavemen at best if not just specks of dust = highly probable that earth has never been vistied by alines and highly probable that we will never be visited by aliens

  11. I really hate people who make a mockery of scientific discovery by marring it with their pseudo-scientific bullshit - which, inevitably, the media picks up on and spreads. Vile creatures.

  12. @Jimmyboyo:

    Yep. I used to "believe", but after hanging around some science forums it became obvious that realistically, we're never getting out of this shithole and no other life form is coming to us.

    Although there probably is other life out there. They're probably just as trapped in their little corners as we are, wondering if they'll ever meet anybody else.


    But I'm still going to see Star Trek.

    yeah it sucks that other life is "tapped" so far away from us and if they even could somehow bridge the distance in relativistic time then they are bordering on literal godhood with tech that manipulates the very fabric of space and time itself. We would be of no intrest to such beings except as a momentary glimpse at bacteria.

    I too am looking forword to trek.
