I didn't mean to be hostile. Every-one is entitled to an educated opinion on this issue, but for some reason many people voice a dogma without investigating the subject at all. I was asking what books/papers/websites your information about the thousands of hoaxed crop forms comes from. Can you guide me?
Have you seen this report from Charles Mallet concerning a circle in linseed crop earlier this year?
Over the years Charles has been genuinely trying to understand the process of crop circle creation. The stems in his photos are uniformly bent, but linseed stems of this maturity snap if you try to bend them by hand. Can you explain how the hoaxers managed to bend these stems without causing other damage to this delicate plant?
The problem for me is that is now clear from detailed scientific investigation and local observation that some very complex crop designs are being created by microwave radiation bending stem nodes from above the crop, without human foot-fall in the crop.
This radiation is often employed in the pitch black of night, without the use of lights, creating complex forms (hundreds of yards long Milk Hill 2009), in a matter of a few hours or less.
In short we do not have access to, or fully understand, the technology that the crop circle makers are using. Do you understand this technology?
