A bone-like rock is seen on the surface of Mars in this photo snapped by NASA's Curiosity rover.   (NASA)

(Newser) – First, Mars was thought to be invaded by jelly doughnuts. Now, some are claiming the latest photos from NASA's Curiosity rover show proof of human or animal life on the Red Planet. UFO Blogger first discovered what it calls a "fossilized thigh bone" in a photo snapped by the rover's MastCam on Aug. 14, and truly, the object looks like one. So what does NASA have to say of the find? So far, nothing. This is just the latest of many, um, interesting finds on Mars, including what some claim as an iguana, cat, two dinosaurs, a toy boat, and a mysterious light, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Life has always existed in the most uninhabitable places. Remember there was a live eco system found a mile down the Antartica's ICE. Dinosaurs existed 'Many millions' of years back. When you plant a seed, life is getting created out of dirt..Life is getting created all the time more often by Man. Can you imagine how many millions of chickens, Cows and Pigs are getting created by Man 'everyday' (and destroyed by man again). Life is pretty much created out of nothing and they disappear after they die. In between creation of life and death, animals grow, suffer (in little cages where they can barely move), so man can have a breakfast, lunch and dinner without ever recognizing the suffering they endured.. If not for Man, would you see those billions of chickens, pigs, cows etc being created. Remember God didn't create Man, but Man created God..If there is no Man there is no God.

What's the point of exploring if they're just going to call everything that they find a rock? I have a feeling that if they saw George Clooney standing there, they'd just say, "While the image you see does look strikingly similar to George Clooney, it is only a rock."
