And I stand corrected, (again?) Humans HAVE made a few of these crop circles BUT they are not that big, look poorly done, damage the wheat shaft and leave no molten marbles of metal, nor signs of a "microwave effect" on the field.

How about this one?
Certainly using ASCII code to encode the message seems rather strange if coming from a genuine extra-terrestrial intelligence. This is not a universal 'sign of life' such as composites of prime numbers, the harmonic signature of hydrogen, PI or other irrational numbers etc etc. ASCII is purely the invention by a few computer scientists back in the 1960's. Of course, some true believers might use this to claim that the aliens have advanced sufficiently in their understanding of homo-sapien life that they feel comfortable communicating with us in our own language - but - ASCII is not a standard. What gives Western computer users the monopoly on communication with ET? Why not use Cryllic or Chinese encoding methods? Yes, I know the formation appeared in the UK so could justifiably use a UK encoding system, but ASCII is hardly universal!

When are you going to show one with aliens making one?

Hi everyone! If crop circles are done by ETs and they were used to make
passive contact and expand our consciousness, has anyone wondered
what is coming next? and Why is this even happening at all? Also Why is it
going on so slowly? Some people will die before getting to know what's happening and why. These people must be far away feeding us information
from drones, or trying to evolve our society. Hard science facts need to come out to the public.

You are exactly who i was talking about in my reply.
It is pointless trying to educate these types of people, they do not see, nor want to.
I don't understand why people like this are even members on ATS, they should be banned for their blind acceptance of complete ignorance.
Your argument is not valid.

A fair retort - and we can go on and on. My argument is the same as yours, and just as valid. Until ANYONE can prove who did it, it will have to remain a mystery.
Tell you what to PROVE that I'm not just burying my head (like some people), here is a good argument AGAINST alien origins.
What side of the argument would you have me to consider?
See? At least I'm willing to examine both sides.
(and, while this is a compelling argument against, certainly not proof, by any means)

Point: Many people believe something that has no proof or even a logical explanation.
Now show me video of aliens at least hovering over a crop field.

I believe that most if not all crop circles are made by humans; I also believe that the more complex the design, the more likely that is the true.
There may be non human explanations for certain cases, but for the most part i think it is unwise to believe that the circles are strictly E.T. in origin.
You're setting yourselves up to be duped.
