Funny, I've always heard it named the "Infinite Number of Monkeys", rather than what you've got there. Same thing, I suppose. --Kels 10:43, 8 July 2007 (CDT)

Can someone put pictures up, like one of the face, and one of the face under an angle that shows what it really is? Because that would really help this article. MiddleMan 12:54, 13 July 2007 (CDT)

There's an overall picture at Cydonia Mensae, but I can work on finding specific face ones. Is google image search a viable way of doing it? Thunderkatz 12:56, 13 July 2007 (CDT)
Well there maybe copyright issues with google image, try media commons first. tmtoulouse persecute 12:57, 13 July 2007 (CDT)
Can I just list the source (url, original photo taker) and use it? Thunderkatz 13:02, 13 July 2007 (CDT)
Depends, Wikimedia commons though is always a safe bet like here. tmtoulouse persecute 13:04, 13 July 2007 (CDT)
One (hopefully) final question, then. Do I have to download it then upload it to rationalwiki, or is there an image tag for images offsite? Thunderkatz 13:14, 13 July 2007 (CDT)
Please download and upload here, offsite linking can be problematic for various reasons....I am not sure the software supports it, and its stealing bandwidth from others :). tmtoulouse persecute 13:18, 13 July 2007 (CDT)

New "face" discovered[edit]

A new face was discovered. According to Wikipedia, it appears like a face even in varying sunlight conditions and perspective you're looking at it from. While I personally think it's still a load of bullshit, conspiracy theorists will obviously spit people like us in their faces and say "HA! You can't touch this!" Someone should investigate and eventually debunk it (unless it really is a deliberately made landmark, which is very doubtful). Loc (talk) 00:19, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Unseen - Alien files[edit]

I recently saw an episode of Unseen - Alien files which made the ridiculous claim that the higher resolution images of the face on mars do not look like a face because NASA remodeled it with explosives.Cmbisme (talk) 16:36, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

The inverse-stopped-clock-effect at work on this page[edit]

Let's take the "watch on the beach" scenario often described by promoters of Intelligent Design. How would you react to someone who used the counterargument used in the "Proponents' Initial Mistake" section to argue that the watch did indeed occur naturally? — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 05:30, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
