Ufologist says he found ‘alien fossil’ that looks like Shrek on Mars
SUMMARY THE NEWS
Ufologist Scott C. Waring says he has found a Shrek-like \’a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ fossil\’ on Mars.
Speculation was made from images captured by NASA\’s Curiosity rover.

After describing the Martian rock in detail, Waring ruled out the hypothesis that it was a sculpture and classified it as an “a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ fossil”, very well preserved.
“If an a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ species has more than three strands of DNA, it will have skin, muscles, bones that are more compact, more difficult to decompose in the environment,” explained the conspirator.
However, Waring\’s discovery is apparently based on a simple psychological phenomenon known as pareidolia: when some vague, random stimulus is perceived as distinct and meaningful. Like, for example, visualizing Shrek on a Martian rock…
