I used to make intricate designs like this when I was a little kid - I can't remember the name of the "toy", but it was like this round piece of plastic with holes in it and you would stick a pencil in the holes and turn the plastic wheel thingy and then you would have designs that look very, very similiar to crop circles.

I am not saying that this is the case with the crop circles, but maybe hoaxers could use a variation of this simple toy to make the complex designs?

Hey folks. I was just reading through here and I think that crop circles may be formed by extraterestrials. I don't think that they purposely do it as an art form but possibly in a different way. I think that the circles may be caused by the ships' propulsion systems. Wasn't it said that the fields had magnetic aspects to them? Perhaps the propulsion systems are magnetic. Why some of them would be in such designs, it could be kinda like people tady with fixing up their cars. Why the ships would go and hover over the fields I do not know. My guess would be to pick up or drop off something or someone on Earth. These are all just speculations. But that is what I think.

Edit: After checking into this a bit more I realise many others think this and you've probably heard it before. So i guess this was kinda a waste of a post. Sorry folks.

Sounds like a 'spirograph'

quick search... ah yes they are still available link

Pretty nice looking. I admire the work that some of the people put into them. Takes planning, i thik its kinda an art, but those bastards ruin all those peoples crops.


so you think that these are all man made?? just a couple of over imagiative teens on a weekend romp?? i highly doubt that given the geometric accuracy of these designes


Actually, if you read the work of the crop circle researchers, you find that:

* Most of them are made over a period of several days
* They're made by known teams.

Now... here's a thought question for you: We have aliens visiting. They have math and technology far beyond ours. So why do the circles go from simple stuff to digital image techniques that are popular in commercial art rather than breaking new ground? And why (since they were capable of doing it) didn't they post fractal images long before 1979, or scanned-line images like Crabwood Farm long before 1990?

Exactly, like one of those debunking scientists said on the NG documentary: "i"ll have a deep look at the fenomenon again, the moment a crop circle is found in a christmas tree plantation, or if one is discovered that is geometric and has the size of a few football fields"

makes sense

here is a link to some spirograph images - look familiar?

Back a few years ago I was researching crop circles heavily and the most feasable explanation of how they are created that I could come up with was the "microwave beam shot from a satallite" theory.
The main reason it fits is the fact that crop circles have grown in complexity at the same time computers have become more powerful. And I'm sure they have fine-tuned the microwave beam as well.

Why is still a complete mystery to me, I have no idea.

Thanks Byrd... another wise intervention.
I think that the citizens of Southern England have been
having a giggle at tourists expense for many years.

The first time the media were really brought in on these
events (and therefore showing a new phenomena to the
world), Great Britain was going through a economic slump
and the idea of strange circles appearing in farmer Hoohar
cornfields came as a welcoming relief.

Also we had what is known in newspaper circles (pardon the
play on words!) as the 'silly season', when the Loch Ness monster
appears and when the Warminster 'thing' starts buzzing the skies.

Remember, humans have a tremendous capacity to achieve something
when they believe in it and I'm quite sure the golden fields, the summer
sun and a couple of pints of real ale could make some people smile and
set out on their complex moon-lit tasks with great determination.

Whoops! nearly forgot... I loved Spirograph!

judging from the complexity of the images i doubt that human beings could have did anything so elaborate and beautifull


yes shapes like stars are too complex for the human intellect. Look at those images closely. You can see the humanity in all of them. Whether is was a tattoo you saw on someone's arm or a design in some artwork or something you drew with a spiralgraph when you were a kid. they are man made.

i ask why just crop circles? why not sand or snow circles also? then i realized those substances would show the footprints of the PEOPLE walking away...

Oh c'mon guys be real. How can you consider all Crop Circles man made? Besides those things have been reported since early 17 century. Few of the designs appear to be as early as 1650 (Hampshire, UK) etc... I'm not saying that beign open minded means to be blind aswell but with this kind of scepticism is gotta be a limit within the reasoning...

Check out this site, is amazing: The International Crop Circle Database

99.9 percent of circles are man made the rest is wind

A common misconception about the circlemakers is that theyre teenage pranksters or drunks. But most are very smart artists who have the skills, resources and time to plan and develop such patterns in the grass, and only gratification is seeing their work posted on conspiracy forums everywhere.

Who said so???




You are telling me that there are sick people who wake up in the middle of the night and go in a crop field and do this in les then 2 or 3 hrs ?



Or this other one?

Both appeared within 2 hrs. Who is so potentialy talented and well equiped to master a artwork like that with such e perfection in e time so short????

Deny ignorance, please.

The fact that some people are incapable of doing anything like that with their hands does not mean that human beings are not capable of that.

I learned technical drawing in school (computers were a very rare thing at the time, and CAD was only used in huge projects), and what can be done with a compass and a ruler can also be made with ropes.

Or do you think that were aliens that make the gardens of Versailles


or Melun, both from the XVII century?


Please, never underestimate the creative power of the human beings and their capacity of doing what they have imagined.

People working in darkenss at unheard of speeds, making no mistakes, leaving no foorprints and not breaking a single wheat stock, carefully bending each and everyone of them into shape and somehow making their creation slightly radioactive....hmmmm

As I had mentioned, in Canada, the wheat fields don't have tram lines but we get crop circles here too....an NO footprints......Gotta be the jet pack.


And these guys are good....some of these crop circles have hundreds of circles within them and can be hundreds of feet across. Must be a thousand guys out in that field from midnight to 5am....What skill!!!



I wonder where the practice circles are?????????????

Apples and oranges. The gardens of Versailles and other royal gardens were created of a matter of years, with alot of equipment, planning, and manpower.

Crop circles are produced overnight in intricate patters. You expect me to believe a couple of idiots with rope and boards can make complex designs in one night when it took designers of fine french palaces years and many mistakes to create?

Not in one night my friend but within 2 hrs and no footprints, no traces of human activities. This is called logic.

I remember reading the account of a pilot who flew a charter of people over stonehenge and then flew back to the landing strip, picked up another load of passangers and upon returning to the sacred site a new crop circle was right there...he said it was within 20 min and this was during daylight hours......Im tellin' ya, those hoaxers are goooooooood

Thats ridiculas.

These things can only be made by Humans!!!

Untill you prove aliens or light balls or plasma vortices or anything other than man capable of making circles to actually exist, we'll have to accept the confessions of the few groups that make these to account for all circles
