    Crop Circles


    Geoglyph


    I find these two forms of artistry rather intriguing.

    Many believe crop circles to be nothing more than a trendy hoax, while others pitch different ideas (such as possible alien visitation). Whatever the case may be, many of them are rather complex and visually impressive.

    Geoglyphs are a different story, the most famous being the Nazca Lines in Peru. A popular theory as for why such things were created by ancient peoples, was for tribute or to show reverence to their Gods. Ancient Alien theorists often attempt to use these artworks as evidence to support their claims of ancient flying machines.

    Anyway, I thought both are interesting subjects and am curious to see what heads think about each.

    Didn’t this all start because some guys in the UK somewhere decided to create crop circles themselves? pretty sure it was something like that then suddenly they’re all over the world. Probably a hoax. There’s far better ‘evidence’of alien life than f’n crop circles. There’s already a few videos of legit UFO sightings (Phoenix lights probably the best one). People can try explaining those away but there’s never been a real explanation. We have no idea wtf any of that shit was. Maybe USA and Russia should start testing nukes again and maybe something will show up in the sky again.

    I remember when crop circles first started appearing and there were all these news stories about how the corn stalks were bent in a certain way that was impossible to do without breaking them so therefore it had to be supernatural powers that made em and there was no other possible explanation and we were all doomed!
    And then some dude went out there and made a perfect crop circle by himself with a fuckin board and a piece of string

    Start video at around the 3min mark, that's where she talks about this. Otherwise, here's an article with somewhat similar information (if you're not in a place where you can watch a couple mins of video).

    I always liked the crop message that popped up as an answer
    to the one Carl Sagan sent in to space.

    Good video, thanks for sharing. Pretty far out considering the prospect of those responses being genuine.

    This little tidbit here is how I know they're full of shit, or at least the people that told them that are. This is absolutely false. It's so ridiculous that it's comical.

    Alien 1: "What's the best way to establish contact with these 'humans'"?
    Alien 2: "How 'bout make some pictures and random geometric shapes in their unprocessed food supply"?
    Alien 1: "That's brilliant"!

    I dunno man. Maybe they are not physical beings but dimensional. So they can't physically interact with us. But the symbols in the crop circles represent something significant but we cant understand it as lower beings

    So, a race of beings capable of interstellar travel comes to our star system, pilots to Earth, passes our satellites and international space station, monitors our planetary communications, measures our intelligence, is able to prevent us from capturing a single frame of provable evidence of their existence ...but often gets caught hovering in plain sight over trailer parks and population centers?

    Have you investigated crop circles?

    The Sagan video shared above aside, perhaps they don't even care about communicating with us. Maybe they use it to communicate with each other, in the main, and aren't concerned with a few dumb humans milling about afterwards investigating a short lived imprint in some crops.
     
  15. Crop circles are the work of people on peyote that disappear for a day or two.

    Nobody has discussed Geoglyphs ITT. That's unfortunate. Thought for sure someone might comment about this fella:
    Cerne Abbas Giant
    Unlike many other geoglyphs mentioned on this list, the Cerne Abbas Giant, located near the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset, England, is likely not a prehistoric creation. The earliest mention of its existence occurs as recently as the 17th century. Even so, its creation and meaning remain shrouded in mystery.

    The figure is most notable for its depiction of a giant man with an erect penis. It has been called"Britain's most famous phallus," and has become a popular tourist attraction.

    You know you're tired when you saw the title and it read Crocop and Gonzaga.

    No, I’ve spent my life surrounded by crops. The idea that high heat will cause plants to lay over on their side is beyond stupid. It tells me their “investigation” was sitting at home and reading shit on the internet, which they then misinterpreted since they’ve never been outside the city.
