I think most folks with their wits about them have a hard time swallowing the whole crop circle thing. If they are some sort of real phenom, I can't imagine they are alien related. I mean, bend space and time to travel to our little craphole only to make drawings in a bunch of weeds? Hard to swallow......

Here's my problem with crop circles:
They've been proven to be able to be manmade, simply, with cheap tools and only a little time and planning.
There's zero evidence of any other creation mechanism.
When it comes down to it, we've seen people make crop circles, we've had people come forward about extremely intricate designs and we have nothing that otherwise connects circles to anything other than works (of art) of man. Other than the circles themselves (which has been shown to be very do-able by humans), is there any evidence that points to anything other than a manmade origin?

Why do crop circles have to be done by college students on a weekend bender? There are genuine acts of artistic expression that surface in many varied and different ways. Consider Scott Wade, who works with the dust on the rear windows of dirty cars (For instance). Why do the people who do crop circles have to be anything other than artists who are actually proud (albeit anonymous) about their art?
We see this sort of thing all the time in graffiti and many other styles of expression that are all but anonymous. Crop circles don't have to be "hoaxing" in their intent, they're just a means of artistic expression that is very big and noticeable. Many have a sort of scientific, mathematic or alien-ish bent because that's what's associated with crop circles. Does that mean they have to be associated with something out of this world?edit on 1/15/2011 by EsSeeEye because: (no reason given)
Here the "UFO" appears to be a little higher over the car, and smaller. It appears to be made up of light-balls, perhaps revolving inside a light-ring?

This year's Circles of Knowledge Conference took place on 14 & 15th August. Once again we welcomed crop circle and ancient knowledge enthusiasts from all over the world and brought them together in the beautiful surroundings of Marlborough College in Wiltshire.
We were blessed on Friday 13th with a new crop circle not far from the venue, unfortunately the weather was not being so kind to us! Friday's tours to Avebury and West Kennett Longbarrow however dodged the showers and the scheduled helicopter flights were able to sweep people over the landscape as planned, and much to passengers delight, many of the circles had not yet been harvested as we had feared.
