Mysterious Mars

Mars has many similarities with Earth. It also has significant differences.

"Differences? Well, duh!"


There are also some very puzzling aspects. For example, Mars shows signs that it once had liquid water, but its atmosphere would not allow water to exist for very long. (Ironically, some evolutionary scientists consider the possibility of a global flood there, but fight the fact that there was one here, where we have seventy percent water!) Was the atmosphere different in the past? Did it change?

Most of Mars is flat, but there are hills and mountains more massive than those on Earth. Those two moons are puzzling, also. Evolutionary conjectures fail to explain what we know so far.

Let's take a look at the red planet.
Although Venus has been called Earth’s sister due to the similar size of these two worlds, the planet that appears most earthlike at its surface is undoubtedly Mars. A solid, rocky world, Mars is just over half the size of Earth in diameter. It appears as a vivid red star in our nighttime sky, giving rise to its nickname, the Red Planet. This is no illusion. The surface of Mars is composed of oxidized compounds of iron—essentially rust. This amazing planet has properties that both challenge secular ideas and confirm biblical creation. Its similarities to Earth make it a tempting target for enthusiasts of space colonization; however, the stark differences between the two planets should dampen such enthusiasm.
