If I had a crop field I would defenetly "hire" the circlemakers to make a crop circle onto my field. Then I'd charge believers for visiting the circle.
What anomalies are still unexplained?
The circles aren't made by microwaves or aliens.
Just because you've convinced yourself, and some other closed minded posters, doesn't make it true.
Open minded does not stand for believing that aliens or teh government are behind everything.

At some point, when people write research papers, claim credentials, and post their findings in numerous science journals, i tend to believe that they really ARE scientists.
They measure them. They study them. They report their findings. They get published. They run studies on the soil. They set up cameras. They take pictures.

Walter Peck: Are you Peter Venkman?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yes, I'm *Doctor* Venkman!
Walter Peck: Exactly what are you a doctor of, Mr. Venkman?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Well, I have a PhD in parapsychology and psychology.
Walter Peck: And now, you catch ghosts?
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah, you could say that.
Walter Peck: And how many ghosts have you caught, Mr. Venkman?
Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm not at liberty to say.
Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!

More straw grasping.All the farmers are under the same pressures.The fuel costs are similar,though I do know about conracts,the pressure is the same.Economic pressures.If one guy figured out how to make lots of money contracting for and then selling sightings of circles,you can bet others will do likewise.Selling is not rocket science.Making the Crop Art might very well be.Evolution of technique includes replication of successful adaptations for survival.If there is money to be made no destruction will happen to the goose that lays the golden egg.No logic to that.Neither stupid nor over generalized statement.Projecting,perhaps?

I have some questions for anyone who is reading this thread:?
1)Has anyone been caught in the act of making these patterns?
2)Do any of the farmers of these fields charge people to enter the patterns and study them up close? If so how much?
3)Has anyone given a demonstration on how to make these more complicated patterns including the intricate weaving of the stalks, bending but not breaking the plants and more importantly not leaving any sign that they were in the field?
4)I've heard that some of the farmers are mad as hell when they see that their crops have been trampled down and immediatley destroy the pattern. Is this true?
Thanks in advance for any and all honest responses to my inquirys.

How can you tell whether I'm on the fence or not?
You can't be serious. You don't know why plants get bent? Do you know what that node is for? For bending.
Google: Phototropism That sohuld be the start. I'm not giving any other keywords right now..
phototropism (fō-tŏt'rə-pĭz'əm) Pronunciation Key
The growth or movement of a fixed organism toward or away from light. In plants, phototropism is a response to blue wavelengths of light and is caused by a redistribution of auxin from the illuminated side to the darker side of the shoot, resulting in quicker growth on the darker side and bending of the shoot toward the source of light. Certain sessile invertebrates also exhibit phototropism.
I tried googling melted insects but coudn't find any pictures. Could you please provide me with a few links?
Can anyone who supports the microwave theory explain us how the microwaves are supposed to push something with such accuracy
yes I know what phototropism is, it doesn't explain how the plants bend at the node
