[. . .] Hoaxes are easily identifiable because the stalks of the crops affected are broken. Hoaxed crop circle making was made popular by prankster artists who liked public attention. Most of these hoaxers allege that all circles are made using boards and strings. (154-169)

In conclusion, crop circles have eluded scientists and investigators since their emergence, leaving everyone to ponder their creation. No one knows for certain how they were created, but there are many theories. Explanations range from natural to supernatural, involving extra-terrestrials, ghosts, and even man. Hoaxers have claimed responsibility for all existing crop circles, but many still chose to believe they are created by extra-terrestrials. It is possible that hoaxers are responsible for these mysterious creations, but unlikely.
