I would say NO. Obviously, we have the History Channel show on at this time. Ancient Aliens. Dealing with the SETI message etc. And now the Roswell Rock...

As the introduction to this thread, I remember vividly as a teen in the mid to late 90s that there were some couples and or groups of people that demonstrated for all to see how they would take their boards with rope tied to it and make vast crop circles in about a few hours. This was then credited with debunking pretty much all crop circles. The issues seem to be that they keep appearing, and also that not all of them seem to have the bent stalks from the plank and board hoaxsters.

I think even the SETI response has been called a hoax.

Can EVERY one be a fraud? They don't seem to attract as much attention. But they still happen. And farmers say they hate it.. (also coming to mind is cattle mutilation.)

What should we be knowing about this. ARE they ALL frauds?

My response to the last question...Unless a serious investigative interest; opinion based on bias doesnt equal ALL fraud, or perhaps the intellectual capacities not there.

Aliens achieve incredible new science. They happen to discover Earth is inhabited. They travel inconceivable distances to get here. They used flattened plants to communicate with us.

OR

Some jerk wants to spoof people.

Place your bets.

BTW, when they do crop circles in forests or shave the top off a mountain and use it as a tablet I'll be ready with a question for them. "Why not just say HELLO!"

Oh and "Not all debunked" is not equivalent to "Some are real."

This is where 'I don't know' category has value.

Yes, they can all be frauds. I doubt any entity would try to communicate by stamping a pattern in a corn field.

Until I see little green men climbing out of a saucer, I'm going with "Yes."

How about the ones where the stalks are blown out or magnetic and stuff?

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..

That's just sensationalistic hype. They could apply the same technique analyzing subway graffiti.
