Crops Flattened in Michigan

Who — or what — could have flattened all these crops in Michigan?

That’s the big question WOOD Channel 8 in Grand Rapids asked after a farmer in Dowling found acres and acres of his crops flattened in “unusual patterns.”

The National Weather Service said the weather patterns the night before they were found couldn’t have knocked the crops over, and neighbors said they don’t believe anyone could have done it by hand.

    in iowa and minnisota, the wind was able to flatten our crops just like that, miles of it. same thing could have happened.

    ANNIE If your such an “Expert” you would not let the
    Crop Circle mystery be revealed. Isn’t the mystery the whole point? If Farmers are to hire EXPERTS like yourself wouldn’t they profit more when the EXPERTS
    don’t tell?
    In My personal opinion and others would agree, If there is an occult of Experts like yourself, creating highly scientific mathematic figures in CROP FEILDS all over the world. WHAT IS YOUR POINT? ….ART?…You get paid that well, by poor ass farmers? Your like a super hero.
    So you mean to tell me that all of the crop circles have been created by your kind? How do you explain that famous crop circle representing the infinity? It’s like a huge spiral thousands of square feet. Not sure where it is, but famous because of it’s complexity. No human could have done it with 6 hours of darkness. BUT since your an expert already REVEALING the Mystery. PLEASE EXPLAIN? What do you have to loose? You futhur prove your point?

    By the way how long have you experts been fooling the world?
    PROVEN FACT: Crop Circles have been around since the begining of civilization. Look at stonehedge and it’s realllllly old newspapers of the day and you will see that crop circles have been around way before EXPERTS like yourself.

    yea, what if there are aliens of some sort. They may not be the same as us because other planets are different. They could be more evolved. If you are and EXPERT you must be friggen super man to cover that much area in 1 night without anyone noticing. Yeah i can see it happening.

    I’ve look at pictures of some crop circles and saw imperfections, one with some kind of spirals coming out and circles getting smaller down a link. Well a few circles were placed bad.

    Crop circles (or some of them at least) are caused by rapidly spinning air. This is an effect of warm air and cold air, and usually only happens in wide open areas. People have twisted an ordinary experience into extraordinary extraterrestrial explanation! like Miah said. WIND!!!

  12. Michaela
    February 5th, 2007 | 5:59 pm

    All crop circles are probably caused by this wind, but who knows? Maybe there are aliens…

    Hello. I am very interested in this. It seems that this is either the work of stupid people out to rouse the interest of believers or actual “Aliens” landing. It can’t be proven that it is either. If it is indeed “Aliens” I think they are landing and doing something then leaving while we are asleep. Maybe they put us under a sleeping “spell” or something. We may never know. I will tell everyone that Aliens’ intentions are not good on this earth.

    I think that aliens would not have had any reason to flatten the crops. They would comunicate some other way.

    they did it!

    Come on, lets be realistic here. What kind of alien could make crop circle, as such as those. A TRACTOR could do that, and as I know, every farmer has a tractor.

    Is is kinda weird though, as not only do they flatten them they make shapes. THERE has to be aliens here but they arent always green little men, they are insects, massives groups of insects, THEY might have abilities beyond the human mind.

    But hey, I don’t know.

    Well some humans have confessed to making crop circles (some of the admitted hoaxers showed exadtly how they did it too), however there are ways to tell if one looks like man-made or not man-made.

    The ones not man-made are well the ones that no human could ever made (due to the way the crops are damaged and not in what humans could do).

    So henceforth I do believe that yes some crop circles were made by humans based on admissions from hoaxers but some are not man made at all for sure.

    It’s AMAZING that these “aliens” are sooooo advanced yet the only thing they ever seem to do is flatten out corn and wheat fields.

    Yes…they’re far more advanced than any of us on earth.

    What will they do next???

    Perhaps these superior beings will leave the poor farmers alone and start picking on the middle/upper class.
    Maybe they can sneak down to earth in the middle of the night (under the cover of darkness of course)and start trimming our hedges and weeding our flower gardens.

    Boy…what I wouldn’t give to be as advanced as they are!

    Well i dont know about the “Crop Circle” but as for aliens, i totally think they exist people just say they dont because their all scared, i think that we are just one civilization out of thousands and we have yet to discover all the other planets full of what we call aliens, hell they might even look just like us, they probably go about their day, just like us and do their normal routine like mowing the lawn or taking out the trash, they probably call us the “Aliens”. Nobody really knows. And we probably never will, Human beings are too blind sided. I mean think about it, the flag that Armstrong put on the moon…im sure there is some kind of species on the moon, that thought of the flag like we think of our “Crop Circles” and im sure they say it must be “Aliens” P.S. I hate the movie E.T.

  23. Ace
    June 1st, 2007 | 5:06 pm

    The peopl eon this planet that go by “Scientists” say that there couldnt be any living being on the moon because there is no oxygen…i mean come on for all we know they could be the type of species that can breathe without it…and as for “If there were any living things we would see them”, uh! duh! they could be in the moon for all we know!!

  24. Din

    I think that the reason why we don’t see or hear from these aliens… “officially” is because they don’t think that the entire human race is mentally adaptable to that right now. And as far as I can see, they’re right. Individual people are smart in this situation. Put the entire North America, would end up being pretty naive about the situation, if it came up now.
    But if they keep on observing us, and whatnot that I’ve heard. And when they finnaly think that we’re ready they’ll appear.
    And they might be somewhat trying to help us adapt to the entire idea of not just us in the world. So they keep on sending us these little signs here and there every few years, in different parts of the world.

    Does any of this make sense?

    If the government truly knows the existence of aliens they’re probably hiding it because of the fact that it would cause an international crisis. The world would be in a total malfunction and the government wouldn’t be trusted anymore. And of course that claimed “abducted by aliens” people would be seen on the media say, “I told you so! I GOT ABDUCTED by ALIENS” MAN! Would that be annoying.

    I agree with Ace. I mean not EVERYTHING breaths with oxygen. Take fish 4 example. But though oxygen still is major for living.

  27. Adam
    September 27th, 2007 | 7:56 pm

    Um, Jessie, fish DO breathe oxygen. They just pull it out of the water through their gills.

    Light isn’t necessary for life.
    There are animals that live on the bottom of the ocean, where no sunlight can reach. There are also animals that live in the depths of caves.

    There is no telling what aliens might look like. Our atmosphere may be poisonous to them, just like the atmosphere of Venus would be poisonous to us.

    They might not even be carbon-based like we are.

    Who really knows, except maybe the government?

  28. May 3rd, 2008 | 6:05 pm

    First off
    1. Expert Crop Circle Makers DO EXIST.
    there not just 1 person, its small teams of up to 6 or more, i work on a farm and every October we clear a 10 mile path of lanes into a crop circle and various designs with a board,some rope and our feet. As you walk you step on the board, it flattens the field down, and you keep going. they have shown countless videos on people making these all over tv,you tube, etc and its how we learned.

    2.NO not everything out there is Carbon based life-but everything on EARTH is carbon based life-simple Genetic Structuring here people-IF an alien came from Venus(and thats a big IF seeing its density) they would die here from the lack of pressure-look at deep water fish that get pulled up-there eyes buldge out, stomaches come out there mouths etc.

    3.your all losers

    not all crop circle’s are man made,the stalks on some of the crops are weaved in a way that would have taken years to do by human hands if it could be done at all.The whole circle have weaved stalks,these are the one’s that I believe are either done by laser’s or who knows ufo-I guess.

    honestly, out of all of you, ‘Din’ is probably the person I agree with most here..

    the idea that something could survive IN A VACUUM is at least possible, I could imagine simple life, or on the extreme, and almost celestial body sort of life, which would be the more likely.. but the idea that something could live naturally on the moon is pretty far-fetched.. for countless reasons that I don’t even need to explain, just google up some info and you’ll see why for yourself..

    it’s also very possible, if not LIKELY that there are plenty of other lifeforms that aren’t carbon based.. their existence would be a little beyond our understanding, but I don’t doubt it at all.. the universe is too vast for the idea to not be at least possible.. and that would definitely mean that they couldn’t survive without some serious help from technology on our planet..

    and btw, if anything were living ON Venus, I’d be terrified of it… the atmosphere of Venus is made up mostly of sulfuric acid, the surface temperature is on average over 900°F all the time due to greenhouse gases completely filling the atmosphere, the storms there are almost unimaginable compared to ours.. anything that could survive on Venus would completely kick our asses.. lol

    the idea that everything in the universe needs oxygen to survive would be a little far-fetched as well, but not unlikely.. the reason that oxygen SHOULD be a common requirement for life, is just that it SHOULD be a common occurrence on any planet with similar properties of our own, due to it’s structure. But again, with the size of the Universe nothing is impossible.

    and, IanStuart, I lol’d so hard at that.. but think about it from the standpoint of a teenager alien, who just got their first interplanetary vehicle.. kinda like with our species, the kid who gets his first magnifying glass. “hey, let’s go screw with that species over there that has no power at all to stop me, HAH, common, it’ll be fun” crop circles very well could just be pranks to screw with us by a civilization beyond ours.. just like some of our species likes to screw with civilizations that we far surpass (like ants).

    meh, I’m done for now, lol

    I have seen aliens making crop circles twice, i grew up on a farm and one night i saw them doing it, they were tall, silver and somewhat luminous. they had wierd hand things like massive shears that did it all. i think they were lauging as they did as well.

  36. November 4th, 2008 | 11:25 am

    Nobody’s mentioned anything about the radiation that has been detected on some of these sites? On TV thay show how thay can detect it also how much there is by using this weird box with what looks like a microphone hanging off the end of it?? cya.

    the funny thing about crop cicles is they have been spoted or “discovered” all around the world for decades. im quite sure many have been hoaxs over the years. but in my heart many have been for real. the question remains why would such advanced beings visit us…. for the same reason why we watch “lower” lifeforms our selves. its amazing what you can learn by watch others deal with the world around them.

    Hello Citizens of the world,
    I am from the MIB. Yes, Aliens are real. Yes aliens are on Venus, Our Moon(Darkside of it), Mars(seen them in our highly advanced mars rovers), Jupiter, and Pluto. Other Galaxies have them too. Our technology is way above and average scientists. We know more than an average scientist. this post was made up. He was just an attention hogger. Now I hope you know the MIB will find you soon. They will wipe your memory of all alien events. Yes, We have that capability. The MIB does not want this stuff spreading around. But I am different. I believe the world should know. If you wish to become and MIB. E-mail me at Joe Black is not my real name. For I am above the law. I have no name. I do not exist. If you have a life I strongly recommend that you do not get involved with the MIB.
    The MIB
