The close up photo of the 4 lines looks clean with no extra dirt laying around outside the ditch that was made from each of these lines being dug out of the desert…This happened on Aug 10, 1990…
These ‘variations’, as well as various others, stretched my own and others’ credibility well beyond believability. One can reasonably conclude that the only creativity these four expressed was through their over-active imaginations and not through any grand desert artistry.
Interestingly, the skies above the Sri Yantra are regularly used as part of the Idaho Air National Guard’s pilot training area. According to the lieutenant pilot who first spotted the huge Pattern on August 10, no pilots had reported a design-in-progress; the Pattern had simply ‘appeared’ one day…
Various points in the purported ‘documentation’ which those who claimed the Sri Yantra offered were easily picked apart by researchers who subsequently visited the site. I, too, have noted non-sequiturs and blatant manipulation in previous fraudulent ‘Crop Circle documentaries’, manufactured and aired solely to convince an unknowing public that the Circle Phenomenon is not worth serious study. I strongly urge each of you to use critical discernment when evaluating any kind of ‘evidence’ presented by anyone about anything – perhaps most especially so-called ‘expert’ testimony.
NO video footage or photographs anywhere document an alleged creation of crop art (alleged man-made patterns) in progress from ground level AND SIMULTANEOUSLY from the air, to confirm that the alleged ‘finished product’ is indeed what the people ‘below’ are alleging to have stomped out in the crop. (Showing people stomping around in the dark, then in the next sequence showing a Formation from the air *does not mean that the aerial is the ‘finished product’ shown in the previous scene*! Through clever and manipulative editing, that is precisely the conclusion the viewer is being ‘set-up’ to accept. It is not, however, the truth … )
The exception to valid video documentation is the Arthur Clarke footage of a 5-petal flower pattern. Although there was no simultaneous aerial documentation, I subsequently visited this crop art and was able to confirm to my own satisfaction that indeed there were no CircleMakers’ Energies within it. (Many have claimed genuine Formations as their own, for *claiming* one is effortless, while stomping one out is a major and potentially seriously risky endeavour. And of course, no one has ever substantiated *how* they ‘made it’, so the statement is simply accepted on a word-of-mouth claim.)
Through personal investigation of the Formations, I’ve discovered that there have been *literally* a mere handful of man-made designs in Wiltshire and Hampshire over the past five years – the great majority of the Formations, including those in the US, have indeed been genuine Gifts. Confirmation of my findings is provided by extensive and meticulous lab analyses here in the States.
