I seriously doubt it came from Mars in the first place. Talk about junk science!

nasa has eyewitness accounts, proving it is a meteorite from mars. not only did the witnesses see the rock leave mars, after hearing what they discribed as a 'funny noise', the eyewitness watched in awe as the rock headed straight towards earth. from the eyewitness account nasa pinpointed the exact location on mars that the rock originated from, its flight path, and landing pattern as well. nasa knows for sure the meteorite is from mars, they just don't make stuff up.

If there is a God and he made Mars and the other jillions of planets, stars, solar systems, etc, why?

the funny part 'clem', is that all of the rocks nasa picked up on mars were meterorites from earth. nasa is now worried after finding so many martian meteorites that mars must be falling apart. they now want to spend the whole manure pile and an added p-pot full of money to get to mars and tie wire all of the loose rocks down. a roll of duct tape will also be used in an effort to save the earth from the sudden onslaught of meteorites from mars.

Looks like petrified wood. NASA can't tell the difference.
