Phenomena Friday – Crop Circles

A crop circle or formation is a large pattern created by the flattening of a crop such as wheat, barley, rye, maize, or rapeseed. Documented cases of them have skyrocketed over the last several decades. 90 percent of them seem to ‘crop’ up (LOL) in England. Why, the jury is still out on that one.  One reason may very well be they’ve become just a great tourist attraction, actually to the point that hundreds of Americans flock to the UK every year on “crop circle tours”.

I don’t know about you, but when I think of crop circles I immediate think of UFO’s and aliens.  AND also Signs with Mel Gibson (I just love that movie).

There has been much debate over whether or not they are created by another life form or they’re just a hoax, costing thousands of dollars in damage every year. Many who believe that alien life forms are the cause, quickly point out the lack of tracks and footprints at such sites.

Interesting enough, crop circles have changed over time. In the beginning, many looked very primitive with simple circles and little else while now the designs have grown to become complicated designs.

Either an aliens’s technology to create such intrinsic designs has grown substantially or humans with a little help from computers have managed to create some beautiful aerial  patterns.

Interesting, if nothing else…
