C’mon Psikey, tell us. What are you implying about crop circles?

I can’t believe I am arguing with somebody who believes the crop circles are made by aliens.

Would you be so kind as to point out where I said crop circles were made by ALIENS?

psik

So who made them? There are only few options here: people, aliens, the wheat has acquired consciousness, or it is an accident. Which one is it?

I never said who made them.  I don’t pretend to know what I don’t know.

But the Galaxy crop circle looks awfully big and perfect.  If it was done over multiple days one would think the farmer would have noticed.

It is not my fault that you make inferences from what I said.  Don’t accuse me of implying something.  I don’t have any information available about them that you don’t have.  And I admit it is all second hand.

It is not my fault that you people do not maintain a category in your minds for things that are interesting but unknown or unexplained.  For you everything has to fit into a comfortably explained box even if it means ignoring rather peculiar anomalies.

No problem Psikey. Since you have nothing to contribute I’ll just ignore you.

Psik, there are enough mysteries in the universe we don’t yet understand, but the crop circles (or the 9/11 wink ) are not one of them.

Farmers actually invite artists into their fields to make the crop circles. It doesn’t damage the crop and it brings in extra money for them.

So are there pictures comparing the crop circles of known origin versus those of questionable origin?  LINK

I have never thought of that. That actually seems like the most obvious explanation.

But you did imply something-a few things…
That people snuck in to do them.
That they were done in the dark.
That they were done in about 24 hours.
Here is your quote:

These things appear overnight but it is obvious some of them should take days to complete in broad daylight.  So how do people sneak in and do them in the dark?

Known as in the farmer invited the artist(s) in to do the work, or the artist(s) ‘went public’ on their art after completing it at their leisure?
Unknown as in the farmer denies inviting the artist into his field to complete the artwork (think about it, if the farmer denies inviting the artists in, it sounds sooo much more mysterious and s/he can charge more per view), but in fact he did and and the artist(s) completed the work at their leisure?
Unknown as in the farmer really doesn’t know who did it, but is taking advantage of it and charging entrance fees?
What exactly is questionable about the origins of the crop circles? That they only occur in English speaking countries, or those most familiar with English culture?

I’m pretty sure this was photoshopped.  The two antennae on the left side of the picture have a dark upper outline, and that wouldn’t show up when just knocking down wheat or similar plants.

You’re probably right.  My favorite is probably that jellyfish one CC posted.
