...Fairly amazing for forum-goers of a site that supposedly purports to "deny ignorance."...

Given that crop circles can be man made, the assumption should be that all are man made until evidence can be produced that over-rides that - who would like to provide the evidence?

Who funds these groups that make designs in crops?
The people have to be paid, the farmers have to be paid, they have to pay for travel, food, lodging, etc. Or are they just rich billionares flying around the world to bust their butts in farmers fields at night because they have nothing better to do?
All I have seen here is a group of people that figured out a way to immitate the making of designs in crops with a measuring tape, a few sticks and some boards with rope attached. They took a few plans and showed us what they can do. But the end result still does not look as good or as intricate and complex as the real deal. I can see that the symetry and proportions are not as precise as the real deal.
Now that I have seen the man made crop circles and how they are made it makes it much easier to distinguish them from the one's that are not man made.
Thanks for the lesson.

Please, we couldn't even build the Pyramids that way today, with all our technology.
Also they have found artworks out of single pieces of basalt, that we couldn't even reproduce this day.
For many years our colleagues have been making crop-circles for profit round the Wiltshire area where we live. Some of us started as pranksters back in 1990, then following a rise in requests to pilots in our group of light aircraft owners for flights over the fields, we realised there was a fair amount of money to be made from the rich people who came from all over the world, eager for information about “the aliens”.
