I don't believe there's a grain of truth in what you're saying.

Looks like we need to separate the wheat from the chaff. Or am I getting too corny?

I was skeptical that it could be that simple.

Sort of like:



Or. It was swamp gas...

Hilarious video. An advanced civilization receives one of our transmissions and, instead of sending a response, they fly all the way to earth and smash their response in a field of crops, because they just couldn't figure-out a better way of contacting us. Heck, instead of creating a barely recognizable image of the ubiquitous "ET head" in a crop field, leave a signed photo, or a drawing. Is that too much to ask?

Why isn't common sense ever used when considering these bizarre explanations?????

You know, it's like, kryptonite for them or something. Not to worry, all the neonicotinoids in the corn will kill them off, just like it's doing to the honey bees. Monsanto hates martians too. When their evil plot comes to fruition, they will eliminate all life on the planet (including their customers) by using neonics and GMOs.

Actually, the *real* conspiracy is that when everyone is convinced that everything is a hoax, the aliens will infiltrate in perfect safety, because no one will believe that they are real. Then they will take over the NWO, and our destiny to become a foodstock for the aliens will be fulfilled.

I got a good laugh out of "Jupiter Ascending". When they finally capture Jupiter they take off from a corn field and leave the SOP patterns in the corn.

Crop circles, ghosts, fortune tellers... All the same to me. Pure, unadulterated nonsense. (Drops mic)

I know crop circles are usually fake and farmers get mad people destroyed fields. But aren't there also some formed by balls of magnetic energy? Doesnt even have to be UFOs..

Evidence?

I also think that "that thing" is also responsible for the cattle mutilations.

So far the best the "authorities" can come up with is Aliens or Satanic Cults? A neighboring county sherriffs office has a $2,500 reward now, it gets so bad here. Come on; it's neither...it's not aliens flying along a particular latitude & dropping cows over power lines! It's more like bird predation following a migratory path...

And crop circles...just how many bored people are there that go out in the middle of the night to flatten crops into a circle? I mean come on...most farmers work very hard & I doubt they are dreaming up another way to be in the fields even more.

Whatever "that thing" was; it has to eat something & sleep somewhere...
I was so glad no one quoted my post & laughed at me.

I thought "WHEW! Maybe no one saw it!" But then ensued 2 more pages of ridicule to the OP's valid point so I'M going to quote myself & add to it...

Yes, I think all the REPORTED ones are frauds. There is always motivation for these; the chance for some jokesters to smugly go "HA! Got ya good; didn't we?!"

The vast majority of them, at least in my area, go unreported intentionally.

They just happen all the time. The ranchers & farmers out here just kind of shrug it off anymore. There is no motivation for practical jokers to continue here; no media attention, names in the paper...nothing. And they just keep happening anyway.

In Southern Colorado; these guys are not about to go to the media & say "Ooooh...look...it's a circle!" The land out here is so vast & remote many of them are not even discovered until they are "old" circles anyway. No Fun=No Fraud.

Now what DOES get reported is the loss of a $1,200 heifer. Still, that does not get reported to the media; that gets reported to law enforcement. Media does not get to even hear about it until there is a surge of incidents that span several counties & involves several different p*ssed off cattlemen.

Do you really think these guys are a bunch of idiots screaming "Aliens!"? No. These are very wealthy & politically influential people & they are losing thousands of $$.

The "crop circles" (which do not happen just in crops,btw; they happen in random areas out here on the high plains) coincide with the reports of mutilated cows.

...This is not E.T. This is also not pranksters. I don't even know where all these jokesters are that are flattening grass into circles & then making the tabloids, but out here if you are tresspassing on private property your obituary will hit the papers before anything else does.

It's "just" an animal.
