All good and real science begins with an open mind. I must confess that when I began the investigation of life on Mars I was biased against finding life. There is no atmosphere, right? The photos are taken from a space craft a couple hundred miles up with cameras that can only resolve a couple of meters/pixel. Then, there is the general prejudice against such a discovery in the scientific community at large. They are still trying to collect more data to evaluate relativity and quantum mechanics. Telescopes have always been valid tools for other scientific disciplines as well as microscopes. High speed cameras are used to capture sub atomic particles on film. Particles that can't be put in test tubes or under microscopes. Photographs have always been valid for other scientific disciplines for analysis, theories or validation of theories. So, if one was to be scientifically objective about life on Mars or elsewhere then a photograph showing a large life form especially if it is similar enough to known life forms should be considered evidence. Am I missing something here? What kind of analysis can be done on such a photograph? The symmetry of the features should be apparent. That is, two eyes that are equally spaced separated by a bridge like a nose and positioned above a slit or mouth. Well, we have such a photo from Mars. In fact we have two of the creature taken a few weeks apart. What about using negative imaging? That always shows difference between animate and inanimate objects. If it is just what looks like a face on a rock then the negative will show that. If it is a living creature then the negative will show skeletal or skull like features. That is shown in Part XVI. There are many examples of creatures on earth that remain stationary or even dormant for extended periods of time, sometimes weeks, months or even years. The fact that this creature appears virtually in the same pose at two different dates is not a surprise. After a snake eats it can remain stationary for 30 or 40 days. The eyes do appear open in one photo and squinting in the other. I have had others tell me they think can see the pupil when they blow it up 4 times normal size. I saw the same thing when I finally printed it on quality photographic paper.
