Hoax…or Alien Doily Pattern?


For decades, millions have been entranced by the mystical appearances and geometric precision of crop circles, like this one from 2001, above. From where do they come? How are they made? Are beings from other worlds trying to communicate with us?

All of which must have given John Lundberg and his chaps a right good laugh. He’s the founder of circlemakers, “a UK based arts collective famous for covertly creating hundreds of the world’s largest and most elaborate crop circles.” With Rob Irving and Mark Pilkington, he’s also the author of The Field Guide: The Art, History and Philosophy of Crop Circle Making.

Now, in the first book of its kind – part history and part how-to guide – the secrets of the crop circle world are revealed, by the people behind the modern era’s most astounding artform.

Whether you think crop circles represent a genuine mystery, a new kind of art, or an elaborate practical joke, The Field Guide is sure to leave a lasting impression. Join us in the fields for a unique exploration of this very English artform.

Mystery solved! Wow: Can’t wait to tell Bigfoot, the next time I take a trip through the Bermuda Triangle….

I’d like to hear his thoughts on why in “genuine” crop circles the nodules on the stalks are actually bent and elongated and not broken like man-made ones. There’s many other changes to the plants in supposed genuine circles. According to all the crop circle researchers there is some sort of electromagnetic phenomena that occurs to the plants. Pretty interesting to say the least. Here’s a quick little rundown of those changes: http://paranormal.about.com/library/weekly/aa021802a.htm

Nice article Davy, I’ll try and hunt down that book sometime.

Hoaxed by the Hoaxsters. Don’t Believe the Hype, Harry. Those things are made by things the masses yet don’t understand. Some can be attributed to being made by men running around in the fields at night. A majority of them cannot.
