"Me being the Independent-believer.. I say it's possibly water, but that a scientist could explain it away in his own mind easily.
A scientist could look at a picture of the atlantic ocean and you told him it was taken on mars he would begin figuring out what it could be BESIDES WATER. Because in their mind it's impossible for their to be water on mars right now.
Scientists are not looking for water or life on mars. They don't believe that to be possible. So, looking for it is just stupid. "
Don't act so naive. If there were liquid water on Mars, in large quantities it would've been found. Pictures from the air will always be confusing, and bring about more extraordinary explanations than those who know what to look for. Sorry, thats just the way it is.
The best you can hope for is that there is ice on mars, frozen beneath layers of dust. That is actually quite a likely hypothesis.
You're not going to find bikini babes swimming in Martian lakes...
