It'd take a big team, lots of time and ressource, etc..
What's their motivation?
I could fake a burned grass circle, and make people believe it's been the landing place of an alien spaceship.
But not stuff as symetric as this... I don't say it's impossible. But it's higly improbale.
its not as imporbably as you think, they spend a lot of time planning what they're going to do. they dont just get drunk and go out and randomly
pick a field and start stomping on wheat...
they layout the design they want and how big they want it to be. now because these designs are all based on simple geometric shapes they are rather
easy to make and when you have enough practice it doesnt take long to do. they do take hours to do, no doubt about that but those who like to yank
peoples chain will go out at night and do this. some have been known to do it during the day, those who view it as an art form anyway.
making a circle is rather easy. they put a stake in the ground with a rope tired to it. then they tie the other end of the rope to a 2x4 and walk
around in an ever englaring spiral until they get the circle they want. since most of what you see are circles.......now you know why, they are so
simple to make! thats how they make this stuff look symetrical. simple concepts applied and viola! a complex looking crop circle that wasnt as hard
to make as you think.
their motivation is varied. for some its to give UFO believers a hard time and to mess with their heads, they get a chuckle out of this and i think
its childish. others do this just for fun and others do it because its art to them.
but again, i want to say i dont think all are faked, just some.
