    In fact, they did not even come close to saying that. Teh WHOLE time, all they kept saying si that it could be eitehr Geological in nature, or perhaps biological in nature, but the evidence is not nearly enough to rule out or promote either concept as of yet.

    They basically only said that Mars is more active than what was originally thought, based on the evidence.

    They downplayed the idea that this is evidence of life on Mars, and were quite scientific in their descriptions by touting that there is no way to draw any conclusions based on insufficient evidence.

    They also stated that other compounds that would be expected if this were a biological component were not found during the Northern Summer, but were seen during the Equinox phase of Martian seasons.

    They also correctly stated that more research is needed to determine what the cause of the plumes could be.


    Sensationalist journalism has ran with the "Evidence of Life on Mars Found!" story because they are scientifically ignorant retards more interested in selling advertising than they are on accuracy. There is, to date, no evidence of life on Mars and this is what Nasa has said.

    The problem with journailsts is that they report science, even though they almost NEVER understand science. The media is a joke, especially when it comes to reporting science. I think every media outlet should have a scientific expert who is the sole person responsible for reporting scientific discoveries, because the average reporter is so profoundly ignorant of science that they will definitely **** everything up and cause more people to denounce scientific discoveries as "hogwash", not because the science is wrong, but because reporters are universally retarded.

    They don't understand stats, they don;t understand the scientific method, and they don;t give a **** about accuracy. Their job is to sell advertising, and they do this by sensationalizing every single nugget of information they receive, yet fail to understant, in order to increase circulation.

    So the press was about 1/2 right, per usual?

    They aren't even 1/2 right on most scientific issues. I'd say closer to 1/10th right, as per usual with science.

    Back when I did construction, if I only got 99% of the staircases I built right, and one percent collapsed, I'd probably get prosecuted for manslaughter.

    Same here, as a structural engineer.

    • If I screw up, people die, my career's in shambles and I'm possibly in jail.
    • If a doctor screws up, a patient dies and "his injuries were too far along for us to save him".
    • If a journalist screws up, they might put a small type correction on page 11.

    It was a joke. Of course people are going to care about Michael Meyers' opinion as he's the head of the NASA Mars program and that is the topic of this thread. Being an E-Thug doesn't help your cause Cherokee. If I in some way offended you by making a joke about someone who has nothing to do with you, then I apologize.

    Besides I don't know how to start chit, nor do I know how to open my mouth and make words appear on the forums.

    Not true. It was be shown to be highly probably but not actually proven.
    Affiant further sayeth not.
