Is there room in the Para/Crypto/Fortean world for a gun-toting, paranoid, bipolar, opinionated bastard? A lonely romantic in search of his lost soul? A knight, Samurai, gunslinger, born in the wrong century? A self-destructive, doom-driven survivor seeking redemption? A heavy drinking gonzo outlaw cryptozoologist whose ego is exceeded only by his libido?
No, there isn't. That's why I'm here...

Crop Circles: Djinn Again?

I just caught a repeat of "Unexplained Mysteries" this afternoon. This episode was about the phenomenon of Crop Circles. Among the usual theories (all hoaxes, extraterrestrials) the theory that they are some sort of bizarre natural occurance was mentioned. A scientise attributed them "plasma vortices". Of course, the scientist couldn't explain exactly what these vortices are, how they form intelligently designed geometric shpes, or why they only occur in certain areas.
Another investigator commented on the observation that crop circle formations typically exhibit seens of electromagnetic disturbances. The crops within the circle display genetic mutations, and the circles have higher EMF readings than the surrounding area.
Again, the idea that these formations are formed by intelligent beings composed of plasma would nicely fit the observed data, no?
So, the bar is open, Jinn, anyone?

I've heard that theory too and some attribute the photographing of spheric balls flying overhead as the intelligent thing manipulating the formation of the circles. I find crop circles in general a hard thing to prove. Unless someone puts nightvision cameras on poles at farmlands...how are we ever going to know. We do know they can be hoaxed and have seen those hoaxes performed. But, the ones that intrigue me do have these strange attributes. I'd feel so much better if a university were to take samples and study the hay's nodes and radiation and magnetism in the field and then report it. The people who tell us about these changes aren't necessarily scientists. If someone could show me a genuine crop circle--then I'm totally for your theory. I think it explains it better than a UFO giving us cryptic messages. They might as well draw on cave walls...

That's my big problem with the theory that they're some kind of attempt at communication (with us anyway). You'd think if the messengers were so advanced, they'd have figured out by now that we aren't getting it. If some advanced intelligence is trying to send us a message, you'd think they would know to "dumb it down" enough for us to comprehend it.
