"Face" on Mars has now passed each test of artificiality
yet proposed. These tests include a three dimensional
structure, a lack of fractal patterns in the image, non-random
distribution of the nearby small mounds, proximity of
other anomalous landforms, an apparent bilateral symmetry,
being located on the martian equator, having a culturally
significant orientation, and serving an apparent culturally
significant purpose. It would be an exaggeration to say
that the case for artificiality is now compelling, and
many thoughtful people will still find that conclusion
less likely than all these "coincidences" put together.
Yet the balance of the evidence, considered objectively,
now weighs clearly in favor of artificiality over a natural
origin of the Cydonian landforms.
