By the way, did you know that crop ‘circles’ are almost never circular?
You do now!
Crop circles first became a widely known phenomenon in the 1970s with most discoveries centred around wheat fields in Britain.
Those with a conspiratorial mind are inclined to believe that crop circles are either some sort of mystical communication from aliens or that they are caused by UFOs either landing on or hovering above the wheat.
They may believe that common sense suggestions as to the origin of crop circles are, in fact, an attempt by the government to conceal their real meaning.
In reality, however, virtually every crop circle thus discovered has been confirmed as a hoax.
For instance, in 1991 artistic UFO fans David Chorley and Doug Bower admitted to faking some 250 crop circles in England, including some of the earliest ones from the 1970s.
They explained that they made the crop circles with a combination of their feet, string and a board.
However, there are some crop circles that cannot be so easily dismissed.
In such cases tests have revealed that the biological structure of the crops has been altered and there have been cases of local magnetic fields that have caused malfunctions in equipment.
Scientists believe that these particular circles may be caused by eddies in the Earth’s magnetic field or concentrations of electrically charged gas.
Do you believe that scientists can explain the non-hoaxed crop circles or do they really have a deeper extra-terrestrial meaning?
