Of course other crops would take considerable ingenuity to plan a way without trampling the stalks. But nothing like a great challenge to our youth that think they are smarter than the average bear.

How do you know our youth are doing it? There have been a lot of crop circles over the years and millions of college students. Some would have told the story by know. How do they weave them? Why do the real ones have weaving and the stalks angle down at an exact spot?

I don't know; but I am guessing at the probability compared to ET. Kids in college do dumb things, not all of them; but some do. Trespassing is illegal and so is shoplifting; but many will choose to break our laws.

Do you know how many stalks are angled down and what is that angle? Is it any different than those done by hoaxers? What studies have been carried out on the woven stalks and how many of the ones flattened were woven?

I am just repeating that the only known way that these are made is human. If there is something else doing this we have no evidence of that. Maybe some day we will; but not today. We can speculate that there are other forces at play; but that does not make them a reality.

I posted a link on this board years ago, on a thread about crop circles ( I dont think it was a thread I started though), that was very informative, it was talking mostly about the genetic changes to the crops that were laid down, I remember there was something very specific about the exact area where the crop was bent over, they showed a picture of a crop bent over with a board/ rope and another from a real crop circle, there was a big difference.


I will try to go back in my history to find that link.

Since you can't prove a negative, the conclusive proof would be if someone got footage of the spaceship making the circle and then taking off etc. leaving behind the circle.
The UK has had these crop circles for a long time, long before these hoaxers thought of doing it.

Some of these crop circles are massive and very complicated designs, it is unlikely that even a large group of people would be enough to finish it in one night. Look them up and the images of them in Google. In England, most fields are not far away from the road, particularly in that area I mentioned near Stonehenge.

There is a video of a white orb flying around over the crop field which I have seen. CGI? I dont know.

You probably have to go to the area around Salisbury Plain (where Stonehenge is) to see them and of course they only appear sometimes and not always in the same field. Maybe you get 8-10 in a season perhaps?

Some people say that crop circles are powerful symbols which are placed in the field. These symbols affect the Earth and the surrounding countryside and people who live there. Salisbury Plain is well-known area for the military to hold their exercises, so who knows what else is there. It is a chalk area too so easy to dig underground structures.

Maybe that is a way to communicate with us, who knows?

I wish there was one within 500 miles of me.

I'm not saying they're made by aliens, but I don't think they're made by a couple of old men armed with a 2x6 and a piece of rope either.
A flock of fraternity pledges would almost certainly tramp down stalks that weren't intended to be crushed. I can't imagine how the things were made.
Exactly. Thank you.

Maybe you ask the Universe to provide one - and then tell you about it ?

There may be...when I came across the one I went to, it was just by luck, I happened to be in that area for work and was driving from one location to another and saw a bunch of people walking around, and cars parked alongside the road, if there had been no one around, I would have not been able to see the crop circle.


They do not look that impressive or significant from the ground.

I don't doubt that at all. Maybe an advertisement like "EAT AT JOE'S
