A stone monument of a face looking skyward has been discovered in Canada. This face is similar to the monument of the face on Mars photographed by Voyager in 1976. Is this a face from Mars? Let us consider the facts.
On June 23, 2015 ABC announced on Good Morning America that a monument of a “face in the rocks” was discovered by Hank Gus on Reeks Island off the coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Reeks Island is part of the Broken Island chain.
The face, itself, is on a ledge forty feet high and some twenty feet below an overhanging cliff. The monument is seven feet tall. Although the photo posted of it shows only the left side of the face, the monument appears to be tightly nestled against the rock wall forming the cliff overhang.
In this arrangement the cliff overhang seems to be a deliberate backdrop for the face much like the wall backdrop on the monument on Mars. This “face in the rocks” also is looking skyward just like the face on Mars.
However, there are differences between the two monuments. The Mars face has a helmet and a tear under the left eye. This is not so for the Canadian monument which is also very much smaller than the one on Mars. The Canadian face is also “blowing”. This is a symbol for telling tales of the people who made it. This is not the case for the face on Mars.
There is no doubt that this “face in the rocks” is an anomaly. Just the extremely remote and almost unreachable location argues that the monument was at one time located somewhere else. It was not originally carved where it was found because it would be too difficult to access the site and no one would see it except, of course, if it were accidentally found.
So, what do we make of all this? A best estimate is that the “face in the rocks” was at one time a free standing monument either with or without a cliff backdrop. As such, it moved with the movement of the Juan De Fuca plate toward Vancouver Island as part of the process of plate tectonic movement on Earth. Since the Juan De Fuca plate is being subducted (sliding) under the North American plate, the plate movement moved the monument to where it now is located.
Can we make a guess as to how old this monument is? Let us try. The Juan De Fuca Plate and the North American Plate are approaching each other at a rate of 5mm per year. That is about .2 inches. At that rate it would take 316,800 years to move one mile. Even then a separation of one mile away would be too close to justify carving this monument. It is therefore obvious that this face was not carved at the end of the Ice Age 12,000 years ago.
What about the comparison to Mars. Dr. John Brandenburg, in an article published in the Journal of Cosmology on November 2014 estimated that Mars was destroyed by a thermonuclear explosion 180 million years ago. An age that old would place the monument 568 miles away from Vancouver Island. This presents another difficulty. Some geologists believe that Vancouver Island was formed more than 100 million years ago at the latitude of Baja in what is now Mexico.
Also, we must keep in mind that a date of 180 million years ago would occur after the breakup of Pangaea, the super continent of 250 million years ago. It would also mean that the North American Plate which includes Canada would be upside down and in the lower latitudes.
There is another difficulty. Mainline science today does not accept the existence of intelligent life on the Earth that long ago. It seems that more research needs to be done before we can answer detailed questions about “the face in the rocks” in Canada.
