Satan must be a pretty freaking incompetent deceiver if tricking people into thinking that there used to be Martians is best lie he can spread.

There are no pyramids on Mars.

There aren't any faces in clouds either, but people still see them.

\"Illusion\" indeed. (-:

...who he wanted to deceive? Probably us.
...what he wanted us to think? Dunno.
...what he wanted to divert us from? Not sure.
...why? Beats me.
But it was mot definetly a deception.

I saw a bunny rabbit in the clouds the other day. Now who could have made that? Could it be........SATAN?

I also saw a bunny in the clouds the other day... but this one looked like it had been shot through with an arrow, *must* have been Satan.

I detonated a bunny rabbit in the stratosphere the other day

Apply your username to what the structures on Mars are and you've got it.

My god, a fundie who belives the BS that Hoagland says...
Is the end of the world as we know it.

This all reminds me of all the Jesus/Madonna sightings: "Nuestra Dama de la Tortilla," Jesus' face on a potato chip, etc.
Unlike the satanic bunnies in the clouds and the "anomalous formation" on Mars, these are divinely inspired.

So Satan rules over Mars too? I thought hell was in the center of the earth.

The pyramids are news to me. I'll take it as an urban legend until I see a NASA photo. The infamous "Face on Mars" that some say looks like Elvis and is therefore proof of an earlier civilisation has been debunked. A Digital Elevation Model shows it to be a mesa. It's just a hill with some features that cast shadows that make the face when the Sun hits it just right. Nothing unusual. We have faces in cliffsides on Earth. One became a symbol of the state of New Hampshire, but the Old Man didn't look like Elvis or Jesus, so he only got the summer tourists who were in the area anyway.

"but I'm speculating these anomalous formations may have been created in order to deceive. By whom...I have no idea."
But since it's on rapture retards I think you have a really stupid opinion.

The "face" on Mars looks like a face only under certain lighting conditions and at a certain angle. Other times the rocks don't look like anything noteworthy.

I think we all know who you have in mind...

"If you've looked at some of the NASA photos from Mars you realize it looks like there are structures on the surface that shouldn't be there. i.e. pyramids, glass tubes, and of course 'the face'... I'm not saying these structures were created by a past civilization...but I'm speculating these anomalous formations may have been created in order to deceive. By whom...I have no idea."
PROTIP: The TV miniseries "The Martian Chronicles"* and the film "Total Recall" are not documentaries.
*- Rock Hudson was damn good in that!

So here we have the infamous "Mars Face", shot by the Viking orbiter in 1976:
And here is the same surface feature, shot by the Mars Global Surveyor in 2001 (from a different angle, and with a much higher resolution):
This whole thing is nothing but an ordinary table mountain. Standard geological feature.
But two years later (the RR post is from 12/1/2003) people still claim that there is a "face" on Mars... some people obviously refuse to learn, and rather want to "believe".
The whole episode is a wonderful example of "Pareidolia". The "Mars Face" is nothing but the same phenomenon as any "Virgin Marys" on a piece of toast. When somebody is deceiving here, then it's YOU, Mr. "Illusion", who is deceiving himself.
