Tennessee Crop-Circles Were "Not Man-Made"

Brian
Crop-circle researcher Jeff Wilson, whose job sounds fun, has concluded that the crop circles that appeared in a wheat field outside Knoxville last month were not of human origin:
The nodes of the wheat were analyzed and found to show unnatural elongation, Wilson said. Furthermore, the stems of the wheat showed evidence of "expulsion cavities" usually not created by natural means but reproducible through the application of heat such as might be produced by microwaves.

The area within the circle also showed higher-than-average levels of radiation and electromagnetic activity. These characteristics have been noted in other plants where crop circles have been found, he added.
Link (via the Anomalist). Of course, by "not man-made," Wilson really means "not just made with wire and wooden planks" a la the Bower and Chorley hoaxes. It still could have been hoaxers armed with lots and lots of these.

I'm not any sort of expert on fire, but it would seem to me this Jeff Wilson guy might just be insane.
I'd think that if there was enough heat generated to do whatever kind of made-up / fancified term that 'expulsion cavity' is, that the whole field would have gone up..

I recall when I was younger, living next to a wheat field.. I was trying to prove something about fire to my friend for some reason. I ended up catching a whole field on fire with a single match.. And yeah, I claimed it was aliens too.

Gregory, consider that microwave heat is not like the heat of the match your youthful self used to catch the wheat field on fire. Microwaves pass through molecules transforming the electromagnetic waves (physics) into heat. Those waves would not catch the wheat field on fire. What Jeff Wilson states is not insanity. It's called physics.
It appears your life experiences continue to serve you. Jo
