Many people have pointed out as proof of past intelligent life on Mars, some, like astronaut Buzz Aldrin mentioned the 'monolith' many times in several media, but is it really?
Its a strange formation without doubt. But we have many examples of rocks on Earth that are not man made and are also strange.
Its understandable that we would like this to be a long forgotten object , of a long lost Martian civilization, it would be an definite answer to the haunting question are we alone? I believe that we are not alone but hard evidence is still not found, perhaps someday.
