We used to make those 'complex' patterns with a set of compass and a pen while wait for our technical drawing class to start as children. They are simple when you know how
They can be created by many different species of intelligence. To say only man can make them is rather arrogant, I have no way to prove how and neither does anyone else.
What is the basis for that thought?
that is how long it has been thought it actually has taken to create even the most intricate circles.

Doesn't feel like anything.
Looks like art though.
A note: the less stomped plants, the easier the circle is to make.
BTW, have you ever bent a stalk of grass? Guess what happens when you bend it at the nodes?
Guess what happens when the stalk continues to grow after being bent?
It's a really simple experiment.edit on 6/7/2013 by Phage because: (no reason given)
But I didn't say that. Did I?
To state that no other being other than man has made them, you must have been there for the creation of every crop circle then?
It seems I have done more research than you. At least, I've read Levengood (the "scientific" touchstone for non-human origins of crop circles). Or did you get around to doing so?
Of course you may have done tremendous amount of research on crop circles, but in terms of probability you cannot state "all crop circles has been made by man".
No. That isn't the line of logic. The fact that people can make crop circles is part of it though.
One group of people who can make crop circles= all crop circles have been made by man.
Maybe. Tell me, is it an assumption that people profit from crop circle tours? Is it an unreasonable assumption that people are not likely to reveal information that would hurt their profits?
You have defended this unreasonable assumption by more assumptions based on the people who profit from crop circles..
If these were man made - why complex geometry?
I have to laugh at the videos of the guys in the field holding a tape measure and putting stakes in the grounds. The perspective, orientation and time to create it under darkness is 180 degrees different than in day light. They're still spending some time orienting their positions in daylight! Think about the muscle aches and leg strength they need to stomp that large area of crop. Charlie the horse undoubtedly has to make its presence known.
