Even in junior high school, our science teacher said that if liquid water was ever found on a planet, it would be highly likely that advanced forms of life would also be present.
If there is human life on other planets in other solar systems, then the concept of God rests beyond our limited understanding. Both God and the universe become much more interesting.
A recent Mars probe found Gypsum on the surface of Mars. This is a really BIG deal! Gypsum is only formed by calcium and sulfate atoms in the presence of water over a very long period of time. That means that the pictures of Mars that have revealed geographical patterns that water forms are exactly that. We see the same water-made geographical patterns on Mars as we do on Earth.
If you click below, you may look at the face on Mars, the geometric structures around the face, and the mathematical connection between the geometric figures, as well as the geographical patterning on the surface of Mars that could only have been caused by water. Together these facts are evidence that some kind of human life existed on Mars. If human life existed on Mars, it is likely that human life exists elsewhere in our galaxy.
Mars lost the power of its core, so, it is no longer able to hold liquid water or an atmosphere capable of sustaining life on the surface of the planet. Because Mars lost the power of its core, there is no electro-magnetic energy to keep the solar flares away from the planet. This means that a long time ago, the solar winds wiped away liquid water, the atmosphere capable of sustaining life and advanced life off of the surface.
Could it be that people who want what is impossible (that is, to colonize Mars) lived on Mars many lifetimes ago?
Could it be that the people who lived on Mars were responsible for Mars loosing the power of its core? Possibly over a long period of time by pouring tons of water into Mars' geothermal core to create steam for energy? Or by some process yet unknown to us?
Scientists reason that Mars lost the power of its core because it is smaller than Earth. However, smaller planets, such as Mercury, still have powerful cores.
