Crop circles have become a large area of research in the UFO community because of their seemingly impossible patterns, size, and the fact they appear so quickly, it’s difficult to attribute all to human design.
A large amount of crop circles have been revealed as hoaxes by people who use ropes and board to create artistry in corn fields, while others are suspected to be created usually slightly different techniques, but no one has come forward to conclude all are made by humans. Other explanations stem from weather causes, such as tornadoes and even ball lightning, which is the name given to a small spherical piece of the atmosphere that catches alight with no obvious natural explanation.
Names for the floating balls of fire include Ignis Fatuus, Will-o’- the-wisp, ghost lights and ball lightning. There are even people who suggest lightning balls are an indication to the upcoming arrival of earthquakes. Even today, lightning balls are not completely understood and there’s no clear reason of how they form and how they do what they do, although some seem to be products of living organisms.
The decay of organic matter leads to the release of methane and phoshporus-containing gases such as phosphine, which can catch fire after coming into contact with oxygen in the atmosphere. Some of them can be traced to having electrical origin, sparking from the ground during earthquakes as the stressed rocks release a stream of electrons into the air which produce flashes of light.
Ball lightning comes in most colors of the rainbow and ranges from the size of a kid’s marble to yoga balls.
And a quick note on rainbows while we’re on the subject… Even they were considered work of the gods, and in different religions, had explanations including a message from god after Noah’s flood [The Bible: Genesis] to each end of a rainbow leading to a pot of gold [Irish Mythology] to a slit in the sky, sealed by gods [Chinese Mythology], that was until science explained rainbows and all of these previous theories became erroneous, as did thousands of the UFO sightings that turned out to be no more than an airplane, light anomalies, drones, lens flares, military projects, reflections, and more. But back to crop circles.
Even though Signs is considered by many as one of the best alien movies ever made, some still can’t buy into crop circles being caused by alien space crafts.
Most of the crop circles that ufologists believe to have the most credibility are the ones with the most intricate designs, however, there’s never been a single sighting, report, abduction or meeting with aliens or alien space crafts that would make such a design in a corn field. The majority of ships reported to be of alien origin are either flying saucers or egg-shaped objects, neither of which could achieve this when landing:
This suggests that either the crop circle you’re looking at came from a much larger alien ship, either one that humans have not seen or was cloaked with advanced technology so that when maneuvering and landing, it’s invisible in our three dimensional world or the crop circle was indeed man-made.
For those bias towards aliens having landed on earth, it’s easy to dismiss crop circles as man-made and credit alien crafts as the reason they were created, but the intricacy of the designs are not beyond human capabilities. And yes, they can be achieved in a single night.
So, with the crop circles not resembling an imprint of any of the alleged alien ships that have been reported throughout history (as well as the size being immensely larger), and the fact that a team of people could create such a design in a single night, it’s not that convincing that there’s any merit to crop circles when discussing an advanced civilization.
Crop circles and corn mazes are a work of art, but they’re probably not a product of an alien space craft. However, we’d love to hear your thoughts and theories in the discussion below.
