    This thread is pretty funny. The ration of shit they give those who think that these circles had to come from some source other than humans, is hilarious.

    I did some cherry picking:

    Frankly, I'm a lot more impressed by the behavior you get from a few simple equations than the idea of aliens leaving graffiti in our food.
    Well, I'm convinced. No way that you could get twenty people to work on a project. No sir.
    Aliens are unsure is we understand the value of pi to ten places, so they want to tell us, but they've got to flatten out grass instead of just coming out and telling us.

    That makes much more sense when you think about it.
    No, it had to be aliens
    Humans aren't smart enough to engineer something this complex and actually execute the plans.
    We figured out how to launch men to the Moon a half-century ago.
    Pressing down plants is beyond our mental capacity.
    Yea thats some definitive evidence of visitation by extraterrestrials alright
    Everyone knows that only extraterrestrials have the ability to flatten down wheat growing in a farm field.
    sure, they're aliens
    with way too much time on their hands.

    wish they'd do something more constructive and useful for earthlings, like brain surgery on dubya so he thinks he's ralph nader.

    around left-leaning political discussion. Seems like about 1/3 the time I meet someone with whom I agree politically, they take an abrupt turn into Art Bell territory inside of 15 minutes.

    Crop circles are made by human beings. I've seen a couple of techniques for making them demonstrated. There's zero evidence to suggest they're anything but man-made designs.

    Well, this is my area, better say something.

    When you look at the circles, you have to dig a little deeper.

    If the grains have undergone any kind of change, then you may have indeed found something.

    If not, don't rule anything out.

    Crop circles are not evidence of alien visitations, but they are indeed more impressive than a burning bush.

    OK I saw Signs. This is obviously an alien directive to other aliens as to where the choicest human morsels can be found for galactice cultivation. An invasion is imminent I tell you. Get down in to your basements and don't for get the Cheetos and beer.

    Correct.

    Study of Dictamnus gymnostylis Volatiles and Plausible Explanation of the "Burning Bush" Phenomenon

    Journal of Essential Oil Research: JEOR, Jan/Feb 2004 by Fleisher, Alexander, Fleisher, Zhenia

    Abstract

    The detailed study of volatiles of Dictamnus gymnostylis Steven. (Dictamnus albus L., original polymorphic species) considered by many to be the Burning Bush of the Bible, was conducted. In addition to methyl chavicol (~15%), (E)-anethole (~7%) and psoralen (~7%), the presence of over 60% of 1-allyl-4- (3-methyl-2-butenyloxy) benzene (dictagymnin) was confirmed. It was shown that this chemical rather easily decomposes into chavicol and very flammable hydrocarbon 2-methyl-1,3-butadiene = isoprene (b.p. 34°C). The secretion of isoprene, which can be especially intense on hot windless days, leads to formation of the isoprene cloud that may inflame without any harm to the source plant.

    Had you ever considered that the bush seemed to be burning, and may not have been, in fact combusting, but was in fact bathed with such a light as to seem to be burning?

    That the words "burning bush" may be an allegory or imagery, but not literal in meaning?

    Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.............

    Yes, I have considered the possibility that the burning bush written about in Scripture is a figure of speech.
