A UFO enthusiast claims to have found more evidence proving that life exists outside Earth, specifically in the planet Mars.

Self-titled UFO expert Scott C. Waring said he has found more evidence proving there is, or was, life on Mars. According to an entry he wrote recently on the ET Database, a photo taken by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover captured what appears to be a tomb.

Mr. Waring said the “tomb” shown in the photo “looks to be 2.1-2.2 meters long,” which is more or less the size of tombs used to bury people here on Earth. He adds that there appears to be some sort of “sculptures” or carvings on the side of the “tomb,” and that there’s a “lid” that’s open on one end, indicating that it’s a hollow “tomb.”

The original photo, which can be accessed via the NASA website, was taken in 2016. Waring said he didn’t notice this detail before, but noticed it only very recently.

“Still, I am just surprised that I had found this today,” he said. “This is absolutely 100% proof that intelligent aliens one (sic) thrived on Mars.”

Weapons?

Waring, in another entry, also claimed to have seen an “ancient dagger” in one of the Mars rover’s photos. He said this dagger is still complete, having its handle, hilt, blade and end intact. He claimed that although the alleged “ancient dagger” is bent, it is not broken and can be considered as convincing proof of life in Mars.

Waring claimed that this ancient dagger is the sixth item he has found in Mars over his years of looking for proof of Martian life. He did not mention what were the first five weapons that he found, only saying that he is adding this one to the “bunch.”

This dagger, along with the other alleged weapons, “might be a sign that Mars was destroyed in a giant hand to hand battle,” he said.

All in the mind

Mr. Waring’s “discoveries” could be caused by something experts from NASA call “pareidolia,” a psychological mind trick that happens when someone recognizes a shape or figure when looking at something that’s totally unrelated.
