Great !! Then who did the testing and how was it confirmed ?
The Big Bang theory is based off of logically consistent facts. When scientists discovered that the universe may be expanding over time, they used
logic to help them figure out what started the expansion process (big explosion/bang). Using the current rate of expansion as a measurement, they
figured out how long the universe has been expanding, and how big it is. By simply reversing the process of expansion, they found out how long ago the
Big Bang started.
Because we didn't exist when the Big Bang happened, it will always be considered a theory, but it is a supported theory.
Using some type of advanced weapons to bend crops in controlled directions is NOT a supported theory, it's just a conspiracy theory.
You are totally ignoring logistical problems in your theory too. First off, the main problem with the current day weaponized lasers is that their
power decreases over a distance because of particles in the air, so having the weapon in space, pointed at the ground, and having the laser or
whatever plow through miles of particles is not feasible, and would require crazy amounts of power. Even if it was "microwaves", everyone knows that
the more objects you put in the microwave, the longer they take to cook, meaning MORE ENERGY is needed. More distance = more energy too.
Also, because of the shape of the focus lenses (if a laser), the focal length
would be a huge
problem. To have such a huge powerful laser in space, you would have to have focusing lenses larger than the Hubble telescope just to focus the laser
correctly on the ground, and the focal length would have to be adjustable (moving lenses).
If you have really huge focus lenses, it makes it incredibly hard to control them precisely enough to make crop circles as well. Especially if it is
on a satellite that is in a geosynchronous orbit
. If the satellite is not in a
geosynchronous orbit, and it is constantly mobile, and moving around, that makes this entire theory sound almost impossible. Because now you have so
many more logistical problems it's not even funny. Having a laser orbiting Earth and still capable of making precise designs in crops is nearly
Just putting a satellite of that size in the air is a nightmare. You would actually have to build the satellite over a period of time while in space,
meaning several shuttle trips to the satellite (no so secret).
There is 1000 more problems with your theory, it's just a joke...
Some crop circles are "weaved" and bent in various circular directions. The only way to do this is to some how control the direction the weapon is
hitting the crops. But if the weapon is in space, or from above, that means the weapon will be hitting the tops of the crops. Not the sides, or the
bottom, or the middle.
Just controlling the weapon like you would an automated laser cutter, or a printer, to the outline of crops would be hard, but possible. But then you
have to think about the direction the crops are being bent, which creates an even more impossible problem.
Your theory is just complete junk to tell you the truth...
But debating theories like this are a trap, and a never ending loop. When you are hypothesizing about sci-fi technology, and you use the sentence
"they have secret technology", all that does is open the door for you to make up b.s., and add to the b.s. theory just to keep the debate going.
Like moving a goal post.
