The relative abundance of perchlorates on Mars and Earth (a rare pretty rare compound here, but common there) makes sense if the big boosters were used on Mars while only small braking rockets were used to land the tiny little Martian capsules on our planet.
That brings to mind a story I read many years ago.

Well, yeah, it's like NASA's little trick of prepping for a major press event, spooling everyone up, with cameras and world-wide coverage, only to find out they discovered a new kind of dust particle somewhere.
NASA is so desperate for a big breakthrough to announce and yet conspiracy theorists keep insisting NASA is hiding evidence of Martian civilizations and such. Yeesh. Like they wouldn't be trumpeting such discoveries all over the place.

The idea does nothing to answer what the origins of life are. Moving the origin point is like the turtles supporting the flat Earth.

I thought it was four elephants on the back of a giant turtle. The turtle is balanced on top of a cobra. Nobody knows what the hell holds the cobra up.
