Some have said these elaborate etchings have been left behind by UFOs; others are quick to call them the work of highly artistic hoaxers.
Now University of Oregon physicist Richard Taylor has suggested that crop circle artists using GPS devices, lasers and microwaves are responsible for the astonishing patterns of geometric forms found in the fields.
One thing is certain: Whatever intelligence is capable of making these communications is advanced beyond us, and we can be sure that they do not live in a throw-away competitive society on a world of racial hatred, wars, pollution and dying species. Step one for this entire world may be to get our own act together, so that we can speak as a planet, with pride, and as Earthlings, emerging into cosmic consciousness.

The majority of crop circles (many of which are stunningly beautiful), are copycat-hoaxes of a real phenomena. As the poster above stated the 1-2% that aren't hoaxed present some strange characteristics. It seems like this has been going on for some time as well:

Are they the work of higher beings ? i'd like to think a few crop-circles were done by UFO alien types but something tells me that 95% are by us humans & 5% by aliens of some type.
To be honest I've never seen a group come forward and claim responsibility, except for the old guys with string and planks, which was a joke.
They could prove me wrong by filming the making of one during the dark of night.
