Strong case? In your mind, maybe, but not in mine. I went to the
webpage and read everything and examined the images. Not as bad
as George A. Filer with his allegation of Martian writing on
rock, but those Hoagland quotes are from poor observers and
interpreters because their perceptions are clearly colored by
what they want to see, in much the same way that they have
artificially colored (not calibrated, but colored) the
'blueberries' blue. Look how it distorts the balance of colors,
extremely so in one of the images.

They are as kids playing around with fake money and pretending
they are rich.

But, what's new? Hoagland has been playing that game for years
now.

And now we have George Filer playing a more extreme game without
even the play money of simulacra. His claim of finding letters
resembling ours on Martian rock is nothing short of
unadulterated fantasy. With his pretentious silliness before
reporters (as in recent days), IMO, UFO research needs no other
enemies.
