These crop circles are too basic. Simple geometric patterns are a sure sign of humans. Very primitive stuff.
Has anyone ever brought up that these crop circles could of been created from lasers or something similar? A satellite with a laser capable of creating these patterns is very likely. A computer can generate these patterns with precision using a laser. Also a aircraft can also house a laser to do this.

Just went and found the image you were referring to.. Some semblance, however, their "logo" is just 3 interconnected circles. This... reminds me of the triangular craft people keep seeing...

I too believe many are man made. However, if you research the enigma, you'll find that in roughly 15 - 20% of crop circles, there is a hole in the nodes, which looks like an outlet for water vapor that formed after intense heating.
Often the crop images are set inside a field away from tram lines with no visible access. They also show up in fenced off restricted military areas. Plants in the affected areas look dehydrated and cells are enlarged. Soil samples tested by Colin Andrews yielded up to 100 % higher than normal EM measurements in the centers of the formations tested. There are reports that in the years following the appearance of the crop circle the affected areas had an increase in crop yield of up to 40%.
There is residual radiation in the circles, which can have adverse effects. Measurements have detected an emission of energy at the 5KHz frequency up to several days after the crop circles were formed.
If thats all not enough, there are a rare few cases where huge 6 anchor size crop circles show up in less than an hours time.
So unless there's a team of fifty or more people working in a field without being witnessed or, driving to and fro the site without vehicles, but with radiation guns and magnetic devices, we can assume there's some other force making these.
It is ignorant to assume ALL of them are man made in the face of such facts.

Some drawings of atoms.
If I were going to try and select an atom drawing from your list I would say it looks most like this to me: Transparent Aluminium
Aluminium oxynitride (AlON) is a transparent ceramic composed of aluminium, oxygen and nitrogen. It is marketed under the name ALON and described in U.S. patent 4,520,116 . The material remains solid up to 1,200 °C (2,190 °F), and is harder than glass. When formed and polished as a window, the material currently (2005) costs about US$10 to US$15 per square inch (~ US$20,000/m²).
It is currently the crucial outer layer of experimental transparent armor being considered by the US Air Force for the windows of armored vehicles. Other applications include semiconductors and retail fixtures.
Objects are usually formed from pressed, cast or molded powder. The formed objects are then densified by heating in an oven, and polished until transparent. The polishing substantially improves the armor's impact resistance.
Very strange but still a stretch. With the vast size of the universe, I would say we are more like insects in the scope of things. Any ET's that happen to find us would give us as much thought as you give an ant as you walk down the sidewalk. IMO.
