Crop Circles Hoaxes in the 21st CenturyAug 03
An article published at Telegraph.co.uk is suggesting modern crop circles hoaxes are no longer created by rope and wooden planks, but are being created using GPS and microwaves. To further explain, “GPS systems enables the artists to cover vast spaces with absolute precision, while microwaves can be used to flatten large numbers of stalks at great speeds, it was claimed.” Furthermore, researchers that point to the physical changes in crop circles as proof of unnatural causes have also been debunked with the use of magnetrons. However, this specific article has a certain arrogance to it, as if it was presenting us with actual evidence for man-made crop circles. But the GPS, microwave emitters, and magnetrons are just another theory! The journalist actually presents no proof, other than unrelated scientific explanations.
The idea that a group of artists and hoaxsters are responsible for the thousands of crop circles that have been reported over the last few decades is ludicrous. I am supposed to believe that for art’s sake, a couple folks head out with microwave emitters and spend hours in the middle of night destroying some farmer’s crops? And have never been caught in the act?! Of course I believe that it does happen, I am just saying that hoaxsters can’t be behind ALL crop circles.
