The legendary rock guitarist, who has a PhD in astrophysics, recently spotted something odd in a field in the UK.
These days crop circles tend to be regarded more as works of art than evidence of alien visitors, however the phenomenon still manages to generate interest whenever a new design shows up.

Most recently, Queen guitarist and astrophysicist Brian May sparked some debate on Instagram after he managed to capture a photograph of an intriguing formation in a field near Marlborough, England.

The pattern is quite intricate, sporting an octagonal outer frame and a sawblade-shaped interior.

"Notice anything unusual here in the English countryside ?" he wrote.
"I never spotted a crop circle myself before. So probably always a bit sceptical about them.

"But yesterday, flying back from our production rehearsal space - flying over a location not far from Marlborough - there was this."

Wonderful. You bring up BS from a junk magazine. The reference is a long disgraced article by Levengood which used poor methods and makes wild speculations none of which are supported by his research. BTW, that and one more Levengood article are the only ones published in a journal. That was decades ago and there have been no follow up studies. Notice that the original work is not referenced?I wonder why? As I stated there are no anomalies.

One of the dubious papers from Levengood made it into the JSE. How laughable is that!

One of the laughable points about Levengood and his so-called crop circle research is that he suggests not all crop circles are genuine. You know the dingbat that think there is something real about crop circles claim people make hoaxes. Yet, Levengood shows that crop circles are according to him real, yet he can't prove it is fake or real. That's the sort of dog chasing its own tail that tells us the poor level of thinking that goes into so-called crop circle research.

Long ago I watched a program on cropcircles on the BBC, Discovery Channel, or National Geographic. One of the items was about a number of students (?) creating an intricate cropcircle in the middle of the night. But then the respons of people as soon as it became known a cropcircle had suddenly appeared: some could feel odd 'energies' , some were convinced 'it was aliens', some started meditating or whatever, some noticed 'physical proof it couldn't haven been man-made', and so on. It was hilarious.

One of the goofiest parts of Levengood is that he found his so-called anomalies away from the crop circles. You'd think he'd realize that his anomalies as he claimed were therefore not a part of the crop circle. You'd think he'd realize these were normal structures and  not anomalies because they appeared away from the crop circles and not even in bent grasses. No, he claimed that whatever strange energies were at play were affecting grasses outside of the crop circle. That may sound good to dingbats and wingnuts, but there is a simple solution that Levengood and other crop circle dingbats an... [More]

One of the channeled sources I respect is Kryon. I came across this today: (34a) QUESTION: Dear Kryon: Would you please explain crop circles? What is their origin? What is their importance to humanity? How can we interpret the symbology? Is it connected with interdimensionality? (34b) QUESTION: Dear Kryon, I have a question regarding crop circles. We know that some of the crop circles are hoaxes, but many are not, especially the ones that are so mathematically complex that they defy common explanation. The question is, how are these crop circles created, and by whom? ANSWER: I give you on... [More]

Another thing is, speaking of "speed" of construction... the farmer *never* catches the culprits while said crop circle is in the making.  (not that I know of, anyway). That is a very low probability data set (? for lack of better term), IMO

Another example of irrational behavior. Channeling is fake. Anyone paying attention to channelers is extremely foolish.

Except when they are paid to have a crop circle made. The best examples of crop circles was when the idiot researchers were trying to observe crop circles being made. The pub crawlers would find out which fields the idiot researchers were going to observe and then they would make the crop circle in a nearby field. The pub crawlers found this highly amusing.
Comment icon #22 Posted by stereologist 2 years ago A circle maker says it is "pretty difficult to get caught". I believe that. Hard for a farmer to guard all of his fields.
