You're somewhat correct; the large input of land vegetation results in a "sour" crude oil, which typically has large amounts of asphaltics and sulfur, resulting in a crappy but usable reservoir of petroleum

Crop circles meet very specific dimensions that would require surgically precise equipment. And they would need to be constructed from above. The truly frightening thing is that they have been reported to appear within the span of hours or even minutes. To think that the idea of aliens is outlandish is simply close-minded and stubborn imo.

They can be easily done with a plank and a rope(this is actually what most people make them with). People do it without aerial vision.
Lastly. The odds of there being another alien species in our galaxy that is more advanced than us is so close to 0 that you have a higher chance of finding a lottery ticket on the ground and winning with it than such a civilization existing.

My main problem with the drake equation is that we only have one sample size of actual life and that it doesn't really take biology and natural selection into the equation.

Drakes equation tells us nothing. x=y*z. If y and z can be any number between 0 and infinity you know **** about the size of x. Sure if you had y and z you would but you don't.
The easiest way to give an estimate on the chance of intelligent life in our galaxy is the following:
Life on earth has existed for roughly 3.7 billion years. Asuming that is the time it takes to develop an intelligent species such as ours and that it will take us roughly 300.000 years before we reach the other side of our galaxy with a signal of some sort.
The odds of an alien civilization being within the 300.000 year span is 0,008%. Meaning that if there was a planet capable of supporting life for a longer stretch of time and it had a 100% chance of developing intelligent life there would be an 0,008% chance that life was more advanced than us.

There is a huge error margin on these calculations due to the limited number of samples, but they get the point through.

Also there is no hiding signals. Unless aliens approach us with lightspeed(isn't possible) we would know they were coming or here before they got here.

Where do you even get that 0.0008% figure? What method determines that?

The drake equation, when fitted to our best estimates, gives us the following.

A fair estimate is around 50 new stars are born per year in our galaxy. Perhaps 50% of these stars develop planets. Based on the rate at which we have discovered other habitable planets, and the fact that extraterrestrial life may be completely different than our own, we could say 0.4 planets per star system with planets is habitable.
Given the extremely long time our galaxy has existed, around 90% of these planets develop some form of life. Another fair estimate would be that only 20% of these instances of life become more complex than simple cells, or an alien equivalent. Then let's say 1% of developed intelligent life becomes a spacefaring civilization. And let's put a lifespan of a civilization at a guesstimate of 10,000 years.

This gives us 90 civilizations in the milky way at any given time. Of course, these are all estimates at best. There may be no hiding signals, but do you know how massive the galaxy is? An interstellar empire could exist right now on the other side of the galaxy and we wouldn't have a clue.

An interstellar empire that hasn't sent any kind of ships or technology within 50-100 light years of us. Meaning if they progress as fast as us science wise they can't possibly be more than 300,000 years ahead of us as this is the estimate that we will cover the galaxy in signals from different sattelites. Thus the chances of a civilization existing that has that capability, but still being within such a limited time gap is highly unlikely.

The number comes from the 300,000 years that it will take for humanity to have electronic signals galaxy wide), divided by the time it takes for life to get as advanced as we are.

Well, I'd say that chances of some other advanced race existing are pretty high. But, due to interstellar distances, I severly doubt their ability to find out about our existence, let alone contact us.

But here's hoping that when it comes, we'll come out on top.

Within our galaxy there most likely won't be one that is more advanced than ours. Check comment #19 on derangedbergers post. Primates with intelligence comparable to us only came into existence 2.7 million years ago so 0.08 % chance of that being true. Again huge error margin.

They draw it out one night with grass markings or tape, begin very thin flattened edge lines the next, and over the span of a few hours on the third night, simply flatten all the bits inbetween. Nobody notices until the third night. It's not as if farmers go out inspecting every field they own every single night.

The dimensions and shape can be planned on paper, and worked out in the field mathematically.

Sometimes you have to work with and consider the reality we have, and not the one we wish we had.

i believe aliens are real and we have encountered them at one point or another. now as for the face on mars, crop circles, ancient aliens (most of it not all of it picture of something actually legit arguable on that **** show), anal probes seriously who travels billions of miles to check out a species asshole. i mean seriously the fact that we kill each other for no reason other than who's version of the same god is better. personally i would find that more interesting then an anus. , and lizard men agents trying to eat people are all complete ********. now as for have we possibly made contact and is the government keeping it a secret. yes i believe so i mean look at all the crazy fanatics that say all aliens are demons and we should purge them. i mean in all seriousness yes the vast majority of us are ready for contact as for the other idk 10-20% they could start a war with other species by disrespecting them by trying to kill or destroy what they make for us.

Speaking scientifically, I am rather intrigued by the crop circle phenomenon. There are a few well documented methods by which one can construct crop circles, however some of the facts surrounding these occurrences give me a moment of pause.

- Crop circles have been documented in folklore and eyewitness accounts as long ago as the 1500's, long before any purported hoaxes were conducted.
- Many of the more complex designs exhibit intricate geometric patterns that would require much mathematical knowledge and a great deal of planning to execute accurately, especially over such a large area.
- Heightened levels of radiation and electromagnetic energy have been recorded within and around some circles. Said circles often exhibit plant stems with odd nodules; further investigation has revealed the damage to be consistent with what would happen if you exposed the plants to high levels of microwave radiation.
- Since the circles typically appear overnight, any potential hoaxers would have to be incredibly fast or have a huge amount of manpower to get it done that quickly (especially if they are working in a corn field, as corn stalks are very difficult to tamp down using man-made crop circle techniques).
- Crop circle formations are sometimes accompanied by UFO sightings (not sure of the percentages but it is enough to be relevant to the discussion).

While hoaxers seem like the most logical culprit, the sheer amount of odd facts and occurrences surrounding the phenomenon make it difficult to just dismiss the whole thing off-hand. Be it hoaxers, aliens, or misunderstood natural phenomena, something interesting is happening here. What it is exactly remains to be seen.

This doesn't exactly disprove or prove anything. The artists stated that they were fascinated by the crop circles appearing around their hometown, so they devised a way to replicate the patterns in a way consistent with eyewitness accounts. All they proved was that such formations can be made by man in a timely manner, however they did not reveal the culprit or the means behind the circles that inspired them, just a plausibility. Additionally, their method fails to replicate some of the more intriguing aspects of the crop circle phenomenon, i.e heightened radiation levels, microwave radiation damage, formation sizes of significantly larger areas than the one created here, UFO activity, etc... This method also hits a snag when faced with mature corn stalks, which as mentioned before are incredibly difficult to flatten in this way.

As an added note, I would like to point out that there are many recorded instances of people taking credit for hoaxing famous paranormal occurrences as a means to gain fame/notoriety. The most famous instance I can think of is all the people who have claimed to be responsible for the famous 'Patterson/Grimlin' Bigfoot video (3 different parties by last count). All the stories presented thus far conflict greatly, and are unable to account for every detail of the video.

Again, I am not saying that aliens/spirits/etc are the culprits, I am simply pointing out that no one has been able to unquestionably prove the origin of crop circles accounting for all variables.

great, now i am interested how they raised the radiation levels there

but never mind that, the technique they used, the flattening of the crops with weight, is not the way "genuine" crop circles are made. Since those crops are not kinked, which happens when you flatten them with any kind of pressure. Instead those "genuine" crops are bent.

do some research please and don't base everything off of a youtube video
