Crop circle secrets and physics

Its one the most enduring phenomena of recent times, but just how are complex crop circles created ?

Richard Taylor, director of the Materials Science Institute at the University of Oregon, believes that some of the most complex crop circles have been created through the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS), lasers and microwaves in place of the more traditional wooden planks and rope.

"As the global crop-circle phenomenon grows alongside advances in science and technology, Taylor notes how physics and the arts are coming together to produce more impressive and spectacular crop-circle patterns that still manage to maintain their mystery."

Here we go with more bs. Microwaves, the theory started by Levengood, perpetuated by BLT, and proven wrong by Collin Andrews, Francesco Grassi, myself, and anyone who makes a crop circle and studies it. Microwaves do not cause the nodes to explode, or the stems to bend. Atleast they're closer to the truth that it's man made, but they're far off on what tools circlemakers use. lol

Here we go again, Aliens dont write and draw patterns in cornfields because they have nothing else to do. Man is the one writing and making spyrogyo's in fields. Now Ufo's have been observed crushing the and burning the area where landed. Those are landing impressions. These are the ones to be studied. Everything else is hoaxers.

Assuming it's not aliens, demonic or men with boards and ropes, and further assuming that it's caused by microwave radiation or lasers, obviously under intelligent control, then let the scientists reproduce the phenomenon. After all they are quite familiar with lasers and microwaves and can grow crops to play with. These are pretty intricate designs, claimed by some to use "new" geometry or have unique mathematical properties, formed overnight perhaps in total darkness. Don't know who or what has created them, but sometimes the simplest answer is the most logical: they are probably manmade. If... [More]

What about this ??? I wonder how many people have actually looked underneath the crop circles.. I have heard that they have found what is known as the legendary "White Powdered Gold" in crop circles..

Looking up White Powdered Gold.. and crop circles.. came across this.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEGLH8cTs2c What do you think? I've read about several things mentioned here.. grains of truth.. or the thread that ties it together? http://www.crystalinks.com/antarctica.html

White Powder Gold has been tested by the Department of Materials Characterization at a prominent English University, and Sir Laurence Gardner deserves all the credit we can give him for his generosity. He is not only an author and historian without equal, he is a fine gentleman. The test results show that white powder gold is not totally unique. It can be found as a residue at crop circles, and it has been collected by NASA astronauts as Stardust, at the ratio of 1 per 10,000 particles. White powder gold is "astonishingly" similar to David Hudson`s ormus, with minor differences attributable to... [More]

Absolutely absurd! There is overwhelming evidence to show that crop circles are created by men, and no evidence to indicate that they are created by microwaves,vortexes or any other mysterious phenomenon. The theory that the circles were created by extra-terrestrials in UFO's is preposterous. Let's say, for the sake of argument, that these technologically superior beings traveled light years across the universe to impart some important message of impending apocalypse. What method do these super intelligent beings choose to deliver this message? Of course, they imprint some ambiguous design int... [More]

Crops circles are up there with chemtrails and bigfoot. The domain of the flake. Sorry i cannot take this particular facet of UFOlogy seriously in any way.

"White powdered gold"??? I didn't look at videos, but are you talking about philosophers stone?
