"The result: Three articles in peer-reviewed journals, two in Physiologia Plantarum and another in the Journal of Scientific Exploration. All identified dramatic heat-related physiological alterations in grain samples gathered from Europe and North America that couldn’t be explained by pranksters pressing simple wooden boards into the fields."
"Dr. Robert Reynolds, the former president of the Clay Minerals Society and Dartmouth College professor emeritus of geology and mineralogy, was utterly stumped by the transformation of crystalline structures in the surface soil beneath the stricken crops. The changes he observed would’ve required temps of between 1,500 and 1,800 degrees F, sustained over a period of hours."

plenty of time lapse youtube videos showing just that. e.g. www.youtube.com...
the question is are all crop circles hoaxes?

Who says 2 people did it? Just as the designs have gotten more complex, so have the number of people involved.
Those three articles have been pretty well gone over on ATS, BTW.edit on 6/18/2011 by Phage because: (no reason given)

And I wonder why We haven't seen evidence of severe gaffes - I mean, if One is making a circle and then makes a mistake and it is not close but close enough to know an error has occurred - kinda hard to "change the design" with something like that.

To actually believe that 2 men made these works of art with string and boards, no foot prints leading to the sites and with the precision and size to consider...is harder to believe than the Alien Theory.
I don't know what or who is responsible, but I'm very sure that 2 dudes crawling around in the middle of the night with strings and boards didn't do it.
Maybe the smaller, simpler versions but not those huge works of art.

I find it unusual the topic is moved into such a vague category. In my opinion, relegating scientific data to "highly speculative conspiracy theories" is close in comparison to surpressing a discussion regarding the article. That is unfortunate, as I was genuinely interested in the opinion of others about this.
