There are many that blindly trust men of renown rather than their own memory and wisdom. Memory and the inner fire of wisdom is radiant and it shines so that all can see. That is why it is so important to trust the inner fire that is within you. Always remember where that fire came from, where your history may have originated. Mars is the place of fire and its history is written in the blood of those who lived before and those who seek the truth.

Mars rises in Scorpio and man once again looks up. What does he see? He sees the angry red planet and wonders what it would be like to set foot on the Martian soil.

He ponders the landscape, the sound, and the smell. He wonders if there is life there.

These are the big secrets.

The puzzle of Mars is being put together piece by piece. However there are people removing the puzzle pieces or changing them for reasons that are unknown.

Mars has yielded many great and interesting anomalies. However the great God of War has never yielded the whole truth.

Perhaps the truth about Mars is that the landscape is in ruin, the result of a Great War. The sounds that come from the planet are a great wailing of desolation, the ghosts of a great civilization that once thrived and then suddenly screamed out in terror for one split second before their breath was suffocated and the thriving Martian civilization was muted.

If man could set foot on Mars and breathe in the air that made up the Martian atmosphere, a pungent odor would reach his nostrils. It would be the smell of blood.

Not just any blood, his blood.

Not his own blood, but the blood of his kind.

It was August of 1996 where speculations came from NASA and others that perhaps fossilized bacteria was found in a meteorite that somehow fell to earth and according to Scientists was from Mars. This was "evidence" that bacteria may have contributed to the decay of living material that once existed on the planet.

Was this proof that creation was merely a gradual evolution where man existed before on another planet and in order to survive he migrated to earth?

Some scientists were joking that perhaps we are the Martians.

The Christian right was outraged and claimed that the liberal media was once again spouting "cosmic blasphemy." They sighted that "In the beginning God created the heavenís and the earth."

The literal quote was premature when you consider that the plural Gods in the 26th verse of the first chapter in Genesis actually declared that they needed to "go down and make man in their image and after their likeness."

Where was god or the godís coming down from? From what place in the universe did the gods live?

The Christian right seems to be at a loss for this explanation.

I have always been plagued with the catch 22 of religion and the Christian right.

While religion has successfully reconciled the great unknown of death, it equals in the ineptness of Science by haphazardly telling us about how we were created and by whom, if by anyone.

The mass extinction of the planet or the end of the world has been the great threat that science and religion both toy with.

The idea of our complete annihilation does not end with the paranoid fears of the paranoid atomic age, or the latter day paranoia that exists between countries who unleash terrorists to deliver to their target a disease that will multiply and eventually eliminate life on the planet.

It remains dangling above us like the sword of Damocles ready to drop from above on an unsuspecting planet.
Ground Zero had previously stated that in the year 2001 man would again focus on his place of origin. The planet Mars.

A report was recently filed in Reuters news stating that science is reexamining the 25-year-old data that life indeed exists on Mars in the form of microbial bugs.

The new report supports the claims of Gilbert Levin who in 1976 said that the tests that were conducted on the Viking probes did indeed demonstrate the existence of microbial life forms.

In the Ground Zero Article "On the Seventh Day" it reads:

"The year 2001 is obviously the year of Mars. Mars is the dominant focus in science. Technology is preparing a way to discover more treasures on our neighboring planet."

Joseph Miller, an associate professor in the Department of Cell and Neurobiology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles re opened the data about the possible Microbial life on Mars and presented it to scientists at a symposium in San Diego the weekend of July 29th, 2001.

This data has been brought up many times on Ground Zero as we speculated on the possible harvesting of a new biological weapon from Mars, or the possible contamination of Earth with microscopic life forms that may be thriving on the planet. It has been my fear that if we do go to Mars, it will be like returning to a forbidden zone. Man will see what happened to his ancestors and the decay will overpower him.

He will smell the blood of the ancients and may be contaminated with the very thing that destroyed them, or that they escaped from. If the astronauts return to Earth without strict quarantine we could be signing our own cosmic death warrant.

From the article "Operation Desert Swarm" it reads:

"History has also shown us that while discovering new worlds was part of our progress, it had deadly consequences. When Spain set forth to discover the New World there were many invading hordes that landed in South America and millions of Native populations died because they weren't exposed to European Illnesses.

Why should we worry (about Martian Microbial life forms) when every time we have gone to Mars science has said that the Planet is virtually dead? Because it's what Science has not told you that you need to know. Many Scientists believe that there may be simple but dangerous forms of life on Mars."

Curt Mileikowsky, an astronomer of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has stated that he believes that the ancestral cell for life on Earth must have originated somewhere in our own solar system.

His team also studied the possibility of microbe-bearing asteroids sailing into the Earth from solar systems beyond the sun. These microbe-bearing asteroids may be responsible for bacteria that stand up to antibiotics, strange unknown plagues that come and go.

Since these asteroids are literally small "planets" that fall out of orbit, we can understand why anciently, UAP and lights falling from the firmament were always associated with doom.

The extra terrestrial microbes may have brought with their arrival the very plagues that rendered the planet sick and dead.

Other revelations and speculation may even point to possible life forms living just above us and just under the vacuum of space. A recent story to come to light may explain the existence of small orb like UAP that have been seen in the skies and witnessed by the astronauts.

Evidence of living bacterial cells entering the Earth's upper atmosphere from space has come from a joint project involving Indian and UK scientists.

The first positive identification of extraterrestrial microbial life was reported on July 29th 2001 at the Astrobiology session of the 46th Annual SPIE meeting in San Diego, The same meeting where Joseph Miller reopened the case for Gilbert Levin and the Microbial bugs on Mars.

The data of the Microbial bombardment of earth was presented by Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe of Cardiff University in Wales.

He spoke on behalf of an international team led by Professor Jayant Narlikar, Director of the Inter-Universities Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics in Pune, India.

Samples of stratospheric air were collected on January 21 under the most stringent aseptic conditions by Indian scientists using the Indian Space Research Organizationís (ISRO) cryogenic sampler payload flown on balloons from the Tata Institute Balloon Launching facility in Hyderabad.

Part of the samples sent to Cardiff were analyzed by a team at Cardiff University led by Professor David Lloyd, assisted by Melanie Harris.

Commenting on the results, Professor Wickramasinghe said,

"There is now unambiguous evidence for the presence of clumps of living cells in air samples from as high as 41 kilometers, well above the local tropopause (16 km), above which no air from lower down would normally be transported."

The detection was made using a fluorescent cyanine dye which is only taken up by the membranes of living cells. The variation with height of the distribution of such cells indicates strongly that the clumps of bacterial cells are falling from space.

The daily input of such biological material is provisionally estimated as about one third of a ton over the entire planet.

This new evidence provides strong support for the Panspermia theory of Sir Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe.

"We have argued for more than two decades that terrestrial life was brought down to Earth by comets and that cometary material containing microorganisms must still be reaching us in large quantities" --Professor Wickramasinghe

This raises even bigger questions. Have extraterrestrial microbial bugs fallen to earth already? Have these bugs mutated? If we go to Mars and bring back samples will there be even more lethal bacteria that could destroy the populace?

Cardiff University is home to the UK's first Center for Astrobiology, which provides the UK with a facility to contribute to space missions probing for life on solar system bodies. The Center is a joint initiative between the University and the University of Wales College of Medicine.

The Center combines research interests in astronomy and molecular cell biology to throw light on the emergence and development of life in the cosmos and planetary bodies. The work of the Center will also provide information essential for the emergent discipline of space medicine.

Cardiff University has a history of service to Wales and the world, which dates from its foundation by Royal Charter in 1883. Today, independent government assessments recognize the University as one of Britainís leading research and teaching universities.

In the Ground Zero article Anomalous Calling Card it reads:

"Perhaps we have become foolhardy by immediately resolving that life out there is just like us. It may be as simple as a microbe, or particle of light that thinks or moves on its own. History has given us calling cards of proof that an extra terrestrial life form exists and that this life form is as simplistic as bacteria or a microbial bug. Itís a simple phenomenon that has all of the attributes of the angels and some of the attributes of the common Extra terrestrial."

When I use free association to get to the truth I am hoping you will too. I have heard so many people say that what I talk about is odd. People demand that it needs to be heard in science journals, or on other talk shows, or news programs before they trust what I have to say.

I am pointing out to you that in the past, Ground Zero has told you that these new ideas may not matter to you now, you may think they are crazy, and you may think that I am talking out of my head.

Now you can see, that if you follow the news, the topics that can only be scratched on the surface during a talk show are now being scrutinized and studied.

Spokespersons with degrees and the where with all to inform you on a larger scale have confirmed our cooperative hypothesis.

All theories and speculations that challenge the mainstream are always laughed at in the beginning. But we must have an open mind and learn to embrace new ideas because in the big picture we are still children when it comes to new information about our neighboring celestial bodies.

Dr. Tom Van Flandern has argued for many years that mankind and science should always keep an open mind when it comes to Mars. We see a lot of people who claim to be scientists or claim to be skeptics, and yet in the same breath become unscientific, rigid, and malicious.

They throw insults at people who have imaginations. They laugh at people who see faces in Martian soil, and artificial structures. They laugh at those who wonder about microbial life forms on the planet. They belittle those who speculate.

Imagination fuels science.

These speculations and thoughts go back thousands of years. Stories of alien adventure and life out there have even made it in the conservative periodicals of Victorian England.

Cassellí Family magazine was a sober British magazine that was printed in Victorian times. In February of 1887, the magazine printed an article that was allegedly written by an alien named Aleriel. The article was entitled "Letters from the Planets."

Aleriel told the readers that he had just visited the moon and that he could see traces of former life. He also said that there were ruins there of a former civilization and that they had erected these monuments to their leaders.

On the other hand Aleriel then made the journey to Mars and there he saw a civilization surrounded by lush vegetation. The Martian cities were built on islands, which floated on the surface of the canals. Their achievements were far superior to ours.

These stories sparked the imagination but as technology advances we find that perhaps there is a little irony to it all.

Van Flandern also saw artificial structures on Mars. Others like Richard Hoagland , Vincent Di Pietro, and Gregory Molenaar joined in the study of these anomalous structures. This eventually led to the finding of a bilateral symmetrical face in the Cydonia region of mars.

Other Scientists that toed the company line were less than interested in these findings.

The Brookings report was quick to say that civilizations would fall and science would be in jeopardy if indeed we were to find that life once existed or still exists so close to home.

Van Flandern feels that this is an unfortunate occurrence.

There are others who are more militant. They are cruel debunkers and joyless people who do not use Scientific method. They like to hurt those who have invested their time and money. Some are silenced and some are ostracized.

People who use their power and money to silence free thinking are similar to Orwellís thought police in the book "1984."

Mars then becomes the bringer of another kind of warfare, psychological warfare.

Robert Williams, a New York State College professor was fired from his teaching duties because he used "unconventional methods" and was involved with "questionable" activities.

Namely asking for better pictures of the Cydonia Face for study and for asking Hillary Rodham Clinton to start a dialogue on disclosure of alien reality.

He used the college computers to make requests through the Freedom of information act about the Mars images. He also has a website that the Clinton Community college felt was inappropriate.

"I'm being silenced over my FOIA requests to NASA, the use of Mars images as academic freedom rather than a bicycle tire image, use of astronaut names rather than John n Jane Does, and my right under the contract for freedom of research and dissemination of that research," Williams says.

He appeared on other talk shows across the country to tell his story. Alfred Lhemberg is another teacher who was fired from teaching over issues regarding his use of Extraterrestrial issues in his curriculum.

Is a regular human being unable to explore his mind and have open commentary about space anomalies? Is this a public taboo? Does the speculation of life on Mars trouble the public?

Well it troubles some people.

Ground Zero reported in the article G.O.D. Grand Order Of Developers that:

Back in 1997 Christian Evangelist Pat Robertson who heads the Christian Coalition saw the July 4th 1997 Mars landing, and coincidentally the 50th anniversary of the alleged Roswell alien encounter as an opportunity to spout extremist attitudes regarding the ideas of alien encounters, and beliefís in Extra terrestrials.

On a July 8th 1997 broadcast of The 700 Club Robertson spoke of the Mars pathfinder and then the conversation evolved into the existence of alien beings.

This prompted him into launching into a hostile diatribe against anyone who entertains the existence of extraterrestrials or flying saucers.

" If such things (aliens) exist, they are simply demons trying to lead people away from Christ. People who believe in space aliens should be put to death by stoning -- according to "Godís word." The Bible says the Earth belongs to man, but the heavens belong to the Lord He has given us the Earth. He also warned, way back when Moses was writing down not only what is the Ten Commandments, but Deuteronomy, which is almost the Second Law.

Here is what he said to the children of Israel about this whole matter:

If there is found among you, within any of your gates which the Lord your God gives you, a man or a woman who has been wicked in the sight of the Lord your God, in transgressing His covenant, who has gone and served other gods and worshipped them, either the sun or moon or any of the hosts of heaven which I have not commanded you, and you hear of it, then you shall inquire diligently.

And if it is indeed true and certain that such an abomination has been committed in Israel, then you shall bring out to your gates that man or woman who has committed that wicked thing, and stone to death that man or woman with stones.

Can a demon appear as a slanty-eyed, funny-looking creature? Of course he can, or it can. Of course they can deceive people. And if they can lead somebody away from the true God, or away from Jesus Christ, anyway it happens, it doesnít matter, you will lose your salvation. It doesnít matter how they get you. The question is, did they get you, and under what guise?

This is man in rebellion against God, who refuses to take Godís Law. And God says, 'My covenant says you wonít do this. And if I find anybody in Israel,' -- which is his pure nation -- 'If I find anybody in Israel thatís doing this sort of thing, then I want you to take him out and dispose of him.' "Itís a clear violation of Godís word." Ė Pat Robertson

An example of how a person with Christian values can demand "blood" when someone even speculates on alien reality even if it is as close as the Planet Mars.

The ugly attitudes persist even among the ranks of NASA. This of course was shown most recently with billionaire space tourist Dennis Titoís visit on the new Space station.

Why did he have to go to Russia for training? Why were the NASA astronauts less than friendly when Tito came aboard?

Isnít outer space ours?

Or is there an agenda hidden in the dark reaches of space?

Many people believe that there is a hidden agenda. That space is the new battlefield and that Mars plays a role there too.

The SDI question, once laughed at has now gained a new life in the 21st century.

Black budget rumors and new rumors of space based weapons are now being talked about. Circumstantial evidence proves that what awaits us on Mars is resources that can aid in fighting the battles of earth and eventually the possible extra terrestrial battles that for now remain in comic books and Sci Fi Film festivals.

The United Nations General Assemblyís Outer Space Treaty was made in 1967 declaring that manís new interest in space and his mapping out of the cosmos should only for peaceful reasons.

In November of the year 2000 the treaty was once again looked at and 163 nations reaffirmed that space should be explored for peaceful reasons.

Why was it reaffirmed?

Because the United States has declared that space is the higher ground and with it they could have the upper hand in battles on earth. It is no secret that the United States has ramped up their vision of a Militarized outer space for the future.

Huge amounts of money have been put into for space warfare programs including development of space-based laser weapons. These budgets total anywhere from $20 to $30 billion.

Space projects will include preparations for settlements on the moon by 2003 and perhaps military settlements by 2020 or 2030.

Moreover the sample return missions may pose a threat to the lives of everyone on earth.

Project Stardust is due to reach earth in 2006. It will crash in the Utah Desert some forty miles west of Salt Lake City and will immediately be taken to Dugway Proving Grounds for testing. The project has collected space dust and will analyze it for any life forms that may be floating in space.

Ground Zeroís "Warning From Andromeda" makes the connections as to why this may be happening:

"The location of the landing of Stardust's probe is interesting when you consider that it is near the Dugway Proving grounds. The facility is a primary biochemical storage facility operated by EG&G Defense Materials Inc. for the Army. Dugway's own mission statement infers that perhaps NASA and the Military are well aware of a potential biohazard with the return of the probe. Dugway's mission is to:

Perform chemical and biological survivability testing of defense material.

Test environmental characterization and remediation technology.

Act as the Department of Defense Joint Chemical and Biological Defense Contact Point in support of war fighting Commanders in Chief.

Provide support to chemical and biological weapons conventions.

Operate and maintain an installation to support our test mission.

Despite all of the assurances despite all of the Quarantine precautions can NASA be 100 per cent sure that there are no risks involved? I guess we will know when the probe crash lands on earth, in the Utah desert in 2006."

In 1994 Carl Sagan was asked if it was wise to return samples from Mars to earth:

"If putative Martian organisms were originally transferred to Mars by collisions with the Earth, they may be enough like us that they could be pathogenic."

The same argument holds if the transfer was from Mars to Earth.

So I say again "Beware the rise of Mars" and beware of those who wish to gallantly set foot in a place where creation ended up in desolation.

If anyone these theories connect to a the truth then someone Human or alien doesnít want you to know about it. The next time you are walking hand in hand with someone and you gaze into the sky. Try to project yourself on to the Planet Mars. Its up there watching and waiting for the first strike.

It is a frightening thought that life was abundant there. Itís equally frightening to think the life that may now exist there could be the very thing that could kill you.

You then see a falling star and you make a wish as lovers often do. You ten take in a deep breath and smell that metallic smell of blood.

You sneeze, and the invasion begins.
