The word comes from the Greek words para (παρά, "beside, alongside, instead") in this context meaning something faulty, wrong, instead of; and the noun eidōlon (εἴδωλον "image, form, shape") the diminutive of eidos. Pareidolia is a type of apophenia, seeing patterns in random data.
In this case we are looking a an image of some rocks on mars that look like a skull if we squint, and think about it
The human mind will always see things that aren't actually there. The problem is, when you point out this logic to those who subscribed to this, they will attack and scorn you because you are 'not open minded', 'not awake', 'a paid shill/agent' or other negative words. It is a shame because you can never be objective it appears, you have to be for or against, never in between.
Unfortunately, the simple truth is that, for the most part, UFO research has done a leap-frog to the extraterrestrial explanation without ever adequately exploring and exhausting a terrestrial origin.
