The question of the day is definitely whether a statue of Buddha was photographed on Mars. Not quite. The Internet went in an uproar as news emerged that the Mars Rover took a picture of what eerily resembles a Buddha statue on the Red Planet.
Actually, the story is as follows. A gentlemen by the name of Scott C. Waring, by profession a self-made and self-named UFOlogist, has published on his website a photo that he pulled out of NASA’s stock archives of pictures taken by Rover.
The image depicts a rocky formation on the surface of Mars, that reminded Waring very much of something he had definitely seen before. On Earth. In India. The Buddha. He quickly decided that it was certainly carved by aliens and, of course, that NASA was trying to hide it all from us. He also classified the aliens that made the statue as Gods.
He claims he can see in the picture the fact that it’s not just a natural rocky hill top, but that it actually represents a head that is turned to its right, with a face on it, beneath it the breasts and the round belly of our Buddha we have come to know and love.
However, reality shows that this picture was, in fact, taken by the Mars Rover in 2014 and not now, at the end of 2015, as it is claimed. Also, Mr. Waring brought it to the general attention once before, when it was originally taken and broadcasted, in October 2014. It seems like the UFOlogist has created a tradition for himself to claim aliens carved a Buddha on Mars in the month of October of every year.
Many sites have quickly picked up the news. But, on closer inspection, it seems like the carving is just a natural rock, after all. Nevertheless, it is interesting and good to know the general public’s interest in the Red Planet and the Mars Rover is still alive and kicking. Also, it’s wonderful to discover just how much people want to believe we are not alone in the universe. And not only this, but that our alien friends are very close to us, as close as Mars. Which is, so to say, right at our back door.
The idea that NASA is trying to withhold absolutely every piece of significant information from us is still a very believed and discussed aspect. It seems that no article about the outer space can appear with a little mention about NASA and its foul ways.
