Ya humans can plot and make them with rudimentary means.
If you've got a problem with reason, take it up with a psychologist.
Don't see any police making rounds with this business if it's actually people on the ground doing it.. Been long enough yaad think...
A 29-year-old Wiltshire man last night became what is believed to be the first person in Britain to be accused of the novel crime of raiding a field and creating patterns out of flattened wheat. Matthew Williams, of Bishops Cannings, near Devizes, was arrested after photographs allegedly showing him working with another man were sent anonymously to detectives.
I think the circles you talk about are hoaxes
the idea of benevolent aliens is conjecture

Well, they are not benevolent to the farmer whose crops they ruined.

Well no they are not, they destroy the crop they are made on and though some argument can be made that they are artistic expression - and if any of them at all are alien and not just a bunch of old English guy's that originally dreamed up the idea in a pub one day long ago and perhaps then started a copycat trend then they are still not benign, they are vandalism of a crop be that by a group of half drunk out git's or an alien (or even a nature spirit, fey, sprite, fairy or elf which may simply be ancient interpretation of non human intelligences that the ancient people had no reference for) wanting to tag this planet by leaving his gang symbol on one of our fields.

ok - just for the purpose of discussion - lets assue that " crop circles = a message from extra terrestrials "
given that premise
my contention is
the extra terresrtials are idiots
my argument is simple - there have been crop circles - every year [ UK ] for more than 20 years and multiple circles / growing season
not one coherent message has been " translated "
many claim to translate them - but different people get different messages
yet - the " phenonemon " continues
if aliens - then its the most piss poor " comms attempt " ever

Conjecture at best, I think it is an advanced microwave technology that had it's roots in the Vietnam war.
Someone figured out how to bend the nodules in the stalks of vegetation. A way of laying down tall grasses in fields that enemy used as ambush cover. We also did it with chemicals (AO) but this was better.
As computers advanced, polar and raster geometries were applied allowing images instead of circles.
No need to go to ET when these kind of things are in the realm of human invention.
The complexity curve mapped against the advance in computer graphics should be a clue, otherwise it would have been complexity from the start.

Observation of a any phenomena doesn't "need" any "belief system" or preconcieved notions... Just plain observation, and steady, diligent study and analysis.
Then observe this and steadily and diligently analyse:

What if they are designs of ancient water irrigation or water channels in fields ? Ways of collecting and dispersing water in intricate patterns which would of also be ritualistic in nature (hence the beautiful patterns). & certain conditions cause the marks to re appear ? After all our ancients were masters on moving water.
Theres a crazy idea for ya...
