I also answered this in a previous post.

Again, you are confusing two different things. The 'saucer
nests' are different from classic crop circles.

What I've said, is that there are other older crop circle cases
of _flattened_ and _swirled_ circles and/or rings, with _no_
weight or burn evidence.

You are the one assuming that what I refer to as crop circles
are all just landing trace cases.

I am well familiar with Ted Phillips and his excellent work.
And when I first met him several years ago, he expressed a
genuine interest in discussing and comparing the two phenomena,
unlike yourself...

Re not scientifically supportable, have you ever read any of
Terence Meaden's work? Have you even heard of him?
