Life on Mars!

A recent article is suggesting that a recent picture taken of the surface of Mars by the Spirit rover shows that there is life on the red planet. Original picture here.

I'm sure most of you have heard of pareidolia, which is the phenomenon that causes us to see animals in clouds, and virgins on toast. In this case people are misinterpreting a rock formation for a man.

Occam's Razor says that the simplest explanation is usually the best. So let me ask you this. Which is more likely: that this is a rock formation that looks like a man, or that it is in fact a man taking a stroll on the harsh surface of Mars?

I think that if you take a look at the film below , it will become clear to you, that what we are seeing in the Spirit photo is not a man or a rock formation, but it is in fact sasquach!
