9.2 – DESTINATION MARS (5.13.16)

FROM MARS TO EARTH [3c]

On March 10, 2006, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reached its destination, and began orbiting 186 miles above the Martian surface. It has circled the planet over 40,000 times and has sent over 264 terabytes of data and 200,000 images back to researchers on Earth. On September 28, 2015, NASA scientists announced that the images received from the Orbiter had finally led to the kind of groundbreaking discovery they were hoping for – evidence of water on Mars. Photographs taken by the Orbiter reveal streaks that appear to ebb and flow through the year, much like the seasonal flow of rivers on Earth.

“Astrobiologists have had a wake-up call. If there is flowing underground water on Mars, and since we know that all the chemical structures on Mars for life are the same as they are on Earth. If you have that, it’s unlikely that there is not life on Mars.”

Stephen Petranek (Author, How We’ll Live on Mars)

“The big question everybody wants to know is – is there enough there for Mars life? And in my view, the answer is yes. You don’t have to have liquid water lying around like a pond in order for microbes to make a living. There are microorganisms on Earth that live in Mars-like conditions. So, do I believe that there is, or was, life on Mars? And I say yes, I’m absolutely certain of it.”

– Paul Davies, Ph.D. (Theoretical Physicist / Astrobiologist, ASU)

In 1996, NASA researchers studying a Martian meteorite found on the Allan Hills ice fields of Antarctica announce a shocking discovery – evidence of past microbial life on Mars. But curiously, they backed away from this conclusion shortly after it made international headlines. Over a decade later, scientists re-examining the meteorite determine that it does indeed contain organic matter and evidence of bacterial fossils.

“The evidence for microbial life on early Mars from the meteorites is now very strong. It’s almost overwhelming. Not only do some of the Mars meteorites show signs of early life on Mars, almost every one of them does.”

John Brandenburg, Ph.D.
(Plasma Physicist, Orbital Technologies),
(Author, Life and Death on Mars)

While evidence of microbial life in Mars meteorites is groundbreaking, in 2013, geochemist Steven Benner presented findings suggesting these meteorites point to a possibility even more astonishing than the notion that there was once life on Mars. He claims that they may be responsible for seeding life here on Earth. Benner reached this conclusion when he found that particular elements believed to be crucial to the origin of life are not readily available on Earth, and would only have been present on the surface of the Red Planet.

“I’ve always felt that Mars was actually a better place than Earth for life to get going. Now, Steve Benner recently has added to the appeal of Mars as the cradle of life by pointing out that certain elements that are actually essential for organic chemistry to work properly, like boron and molybdenum, which are more abundant on Mars than they are on Earth. We can imagine that life on Earth started on Mars, so in a sense we’re all Martians or descended from Martians.”

– Paul Davies, Ph.D. (Theoretical Physicist / Astrobiologist, ASU)

Life on Earth seeded from Mars? Could we, in fact, be Martians? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and suggest that this seeding of Earth may even have been a directed effort orchestrated by human-like beings that existed on the Red Planet. And they claim these extraterrestrial ancestors can be found in the apocryphal texts of the Hebrew Bible, represented as the “fallen angels.”

“We know from ancient legend of the Books of Enoch, that there was a group of angels who descended to Earth in violation of divine law. They introduced to humanity ways, means, knowledge, which we understand today as science and technology. These angels were in human form. They were called, in Hebrew, Ishim, which means men. They looked just like us.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“The fallen angels were giants. They were at least ten feet tall, very striking to look at. Enormous eyes. And no wings.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“For over 100 years, mythologists have been contemplating this idea that the fallen angels came from Mars to Earth. Even Dante described this in the Paradiso. He called this “the fifth level of heaven.” Is it possible that the fallen angels came to Earth from Mars?”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Could we reinterpret the story of fallen angels as beings not from heaven, but from Mars? Based on examination of the astronauts living in the International Space Station, scientists have speculated on what physiological changes might be seen in future generations of humans born on Mars, and Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest the resemblance to the description of fallen angels may be uncanny.

“One of the most amazing things about the human body is its ability to adapt. And if you look at astronauts who go into space, they actually grow about two or three inches. And when you have a human that’s born on Mars, what’s gonna happen is the environment will change the structure of the human body. And what you’re gonna see in a few generations is humans that are taller and skinnier, because the gravity on Mars is less than that of Earth.”

Sue Ann Pien (Mars One Astronaut Candidate)

“If humans evolve long enough on the planet Mars, they could grow to be taller, they’d have the bigger heads; they’d have the spindly limbs. They might actually grow slightly larger eyes that were equipped to see better in the dark, because you simply have less sunlight on Mars than you do on the Earth, because it’s farther away from the sun. They could also end up looking like representations of angels and various other god-like beings that we’ve read about in the Bible and other ancient documents.”

– Michael Bara (Author, The Choice),
(Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA),
(Ancient Aliens on the Moon), (Ancient Aliens on Mars),
(Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies)

“These attributes to somebody from a low-gravity planet like Mars or being in space for a long time may well be the attributes that we see of the fallen angels being very tall and spindly and perhaps pale and with large eyes. Something that we might expect to be coming from another planet like Mars.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Might life on Earth really have originated on Mars? And is it possible it was not by change, but by design? And, if so, just what happened to the Martians? Perhaps clues can be found by examining what some say is undeniable evidence of weapons of mass destruction.
