I think it may be a bit early to get the knife and fork out,
Ray!

While I don't doubt your description of the concretion process
in an Earth environment, have you considered the effect of the
differences between the Earth environment and that on Mars? For
instance, I suspect that the dessication process on Mars would
be accelerated in comparison to Earth, and this could account
for the higher incidence of these "marbles".

Personally, I would be very surprised to find that (primitive)
life never gained a foothold on Mars, but I don't think that the
evidence to support the current or past existence of even
microbial life has been found yet.


Regards,

Joe
