    Venturing deep into eyeballkid territory here, but I found this to be pretty convincing. A crew of cameramen camped out on a hill capture a huge crop circle formation being formed in seven minutes right under their noses.

    If it's a hoax, it's pretty damned convincing to me. The formation definitely has intelligence behind it, and it looks to me to be a humanoid figure.

    Is the cameraman a liar, a hoax victim, or did he actually prove these to be inhuman creations? You decide.

    I don't think they have good shots of it in the process of it being created (as it was too dark), just video of the empty field, some kind of electrical pulse, and then seven minutes later when they check again it's there. It does bother me that they have a night vision camera that they didn't use constantly - but I suppose if you are doing this night after night with no results, you get lazy.

    It comes down to taking his word for it. He seems sincere, but who knows.

    I'd like to learn more about these recordings. Who have they been shown to and what studies have been done on them?

    Ah these extra-terrestrial delinquents, using Earth for their intergalactic graffiti. You gotta love them.

    While it seems rediculous in 2008 to have night vision video that looks like it was taken in the 50's, it's hard to believe that crop circle could've been created over night, much less in 7 minutes. It's cool regardless of how it got there.

    Ironicly, a pro-crop-cricle website does a pretty fine grilling of the footage. Scroll down to the image of the circles from the video.

    Your right. Probably just a alien gang sign or "G'thork was here."

    If they're purporting that crop circles have a nonhuman origin, it's in their best interest to rigorously examine the evidence for terrestrial causes first. It's nice to see a little skepticism, even if it is for specific events rather than the phenomenon as a whole.

    Crop Circles can easily be made by a handful of people in a very short amount of time using simple simple tools. And by simple tools I mean ropes and planks of wood. Crop circles are pretty damn easy to make from my understanding, and the fact that there was no video evidence actually shown in this video doesn't help their case.

    My guess, this is a hoax and the camera people are in on it.
