Not those bleeding flying monkeys again.......... *pulls down trousers, bends over, loads up with bananas and shoots the airborne primates out of the sky. Stands up, eats a banana and blows a raspberry then runs away* :)

I'm sure some of them are man-made for some reason. Others, in my opinion, could be made from military satellyte masers.

The farmers whose crops are ruined would not agree.

Spirograph obsessives can create "crop circles" with a length of string and a plank of wood.

robert I bet it makes the farmers furious, but that was not what I was talking about.. they are intrigueing on a general level, farmers have a right to be very upset about the usage and destruction of their work!!

Nothing proved; I suspect militars have beam weapons on satellites. A "maser" is something like a laser, but with microwave, instead of light (you know, microwaves are those inside a microwave oven).

I think this, because microwaves are more effective than light in transfering energy to a ballistic missile (and destroy it), for example, and because I heard that, in some crop circles, ears of wheat were found folded and heated under the ground. The only thing it comes to my mind able to do something like that it's microwaves.

Furthermore, it shouldn't be difficult for electronic circuits controlling the beam, to make it all those kinds of shapes (I think discoteque-lasers can do them).

If it can be military from space, why couldn't it be aliens:).

1 point for the ET's!

Well considering poking and fun are key words when it comes to Aliens......I'm with Aliens are the cause, or even possibly Alien Flying Monkeys

"Crop Circles" are the rural equivalent of urban graffiti.

Interesting ideas is if they can produce something close to this theory!

Thank you for explaing masers,
