Cavallo Grigio, Robella, Asti, Italy, 30 June 2013
Report A Crop Circle Formation like to let people think they are privy to everything that goes on behind the scenes in the crop circle world, and often know of formations before they have even appeared in the field. Indeed in some cases they do – though why any circlemaker would trust them to tell them such things is beyond me. I mean, of course, the circlemakers that aren’t RACCF themselves or their extended team.
Formations they’ve predicted in the past are usually of very shabby quality, so when another ‘there’s a new circle on its way!’ post appeared on their Facebook page on 30 June, some of us were already expecting the worst.
As it turned out, there wasn’t a new circle. There was, however, as they say “a good chance” that there would be, it being a weekend at the end of June, and if a new circle had just happened to appear RACCF could claim foreknowledge where they had none. They were guessing. This isn’t research, it’s a craps shoot.
But then a circle was reported in Italy, which gives them the chance to redeem their claim in their eyes.
RACCF, you had no knowledge whatsoever of this circle or the circumstances of its arrival, but you’ve used it to bolster your sham prediction anyway. Well-done – another perfectly fine circle smeared by association with you and your shoddy gang.
