The Enigma of Crop Circles

Crop circles are geometric, patterned formations mysteriously carved into farm fields.  In a way, they are farm-sized snowflakes.  They have been observed all around the world, but primarily in the United Kingdom.   To see a crop circle in person or in a color photograph speaks a thousand words.  The natural inclination is to conclude they are fakes; an open-minded inquiry may lead us to ask more questions.  On this episode, Philip interviews Lucy Pringle, the author of the new book, The Energies of Crop Circles: The Science and Power of a Mysterious Intelligence, and one of the world’s foremost photographers and experts on crop circles. The question faced on the show is a simple one: are they real or are they fake? Listen in and judge for yourself.
