Given billions of years and countless mutations, that crop circle would have evolved by itself.

ive seen these and ive seen the shows that have somehow show a couple of college kids with a rope attached to a board, and they somehow do this in the middle of the nite, and come out with these circles...but come on, really?

everyone of these is some group of mad-cap pranksters with a couple ropes and boards in the middle of the nite?

They are faked. They’ve been on television several times. They use computer programs to map out the shape. Then on site they use ropes and such to keep the distance where they want it.

It’s been made much easier with GPS that can get you within inches (or less) of where you want to be.

It’s being used on a large scale by famers so they can plant exactly where they planted the previous year if they use the no-till method of farming.

Indeed. And we've SEEN them do it on TV. So that's what's going on. There's no evidence that it's anything else (no crafts leaving the scene or anything like that).

Exactly

Somebody accidentally shipped me the wrong book a number of years ago after an Amazon private seller or ebay order. It was supposed to be a Bible prophecy book - I got a book about crop circles (they did send me the right book later).

In it, there were pictures of Doug and Dave creations. Two older gentlemen who did them for fun - they were not as accurate as these and would put a DD oftentimes at the edge of the image.

Ahhh, how would they kept the ropes tight and not have the rope sag and leave evidence of the rope?

Not saying technology is not there today to do this without detection, but this has been going on for 30 years...

I’m actually more inclined to believe in some unnatural phenomenon in the case of the simpler forms. Nature makes circles.

Technically, wouldn't this be a crop cube?
I know that it has a circle around the cube but the cube is the main feature.

There has to be an earth-bound, logical explanation for these things. However, why is it that if it is the work of some person or persons, why are there never any footprints surrounding the thing? And I don’t mean after it’s discovered. If you’re going to do this in a field some where whether you walk into the field or drive in you’re going to leave tire tracks or footprints.

Has there ever been a crop circle where they botched it? So like you could see a correction, or they gave up? I have never seen a photo, but that doesn’t mean they never existed.

I think that is a beautiful design. Whoever did it is quite talented. It’s so dang precise.

I have seen the demonstration on tv on how some of these circles are made. But I did not see one done that was as elaborate as this. Seems like it would take hours.

Anyhooo....I think it’s cool looking. But glad it’s not on my farm.

That's what the spaceship is for. :) But seriously, this one is mighty elaborate. And to think they could have spent their time on Free Republic instead!!

Got a better solution? Not worth the effort of space aliens. Get similar quality stuff from some tagger with a few cans of spray paint.

If you put 500 monkeys on 500 John Deeres, in a millennium or so they’d be able to make those crop designs too.

Not sure if either of you is really advocating for “aliens” here, but.... think about it. If you had the ability to travel thousands (millions?) of light years from here, to another planet with intelligent life, in undetectable spacecraft -— would you REALLY do nothing but make pretty pictures in a wheatfield?

Please note that 99.9% of crop circles are in fields that have tracks produced by a pesticide sprayer. Here is another example.

There is. We used to make crop “squares” in the alfalfa fields on the south edge of Farmington NM back in 1956. The owners complained to my dad and we were stopped cold from doing it again.

BUT IT WAS FUN!

I’ve been a Deere man all my life, as was my father. I no longer farm, and miss the machinery part the most.

I started getting serious hands on experience at about 10 or 12 when Dad ‘gave’ me the job of changing oil in our ‘A’ , 60, and 730 diesel.

Just finished a book on the early Deere’s.

I’ve always been amazed how Deere has managed to ‘find’ it’s way through the wild gyrations of the ag machinery market. Of course they are diversified far beyond that now, but it sure looks like there are men of serious faith at the head of the organization.

Today’s Deere machinery is exciting, I’m looking forward to seeing more.

Notice the many tracks left by some machinery (crop sprayer maybe?).

They go to the edge of the field I'm sure, and are more than wide enough to walk in, and compacted enough by the machine that no prints will be left.
