First, there are only very few real UFO investigators devoting their free time to go to Ipuacu and check out the agroglyph by themselves. Yes, it is indeed a long way to Ipuacu from anywhere, but I've did that several times and it was worth all of them. Also, despite the fact that the phenomena is so intellectually provoking, it is strange that most of the investigators just decided not to pay attention to it. However, it is even worst that the press is giving to the last formation found in Brazil a very negative image, due because both of the inaccuracy in the information collected by their newsmen and for making the mistake of not consulting people who have been engaged in the actual investigation of the phenomena. Instead of that, the press prints rumors. Well, I spent 45 minutes this morning talking to the people at Diario Catarinense, the newspaper from Santa Catarina which article was posted here, located in the same state where the agroglyphs have been found. And to my complete amazement, I found out that none of the reporters I spoke with had a single clue about the phenomena. None! They simply know nothing about it, have never looked into it, and yet they publish a very mistaken piece about the phenomena. I had to go into details with them, giving them info about the crop circles that they never even dreamed about. They were all fully surprised. As for the owner of the field where the formation was found, I discovered that the reason for her being totally upset with what happened is because she is strongly religious and simply denies even the smallest possibility that the formation in her land could be anything but "work of men, not something from God". Besides, as her father passed away tragically in an accident just last year, she became seriously superstitious and a closed person. Did Diario Catarinense checked that out? No. Another example of the problems with this piece is that the policemen that gave their opinion about the formation just found last Saturday haven't even investigated it to speak about. They've done nothing. And, of course, none of them knows anything about the crop circle phenomena at all. Did Diario Catarinense checked that out? No again. Also, the mentioned president of the Astronomy Study Group from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), Adolfo Stotz Neto, who said the agroglyphs found in his own state "are just pranks", can't be taken seriously. His claim is nothing but hilarious and for several reasons. Adolfo Stotz Neto is an astronomer who has absolutely no knowledge whatsoever about the crop circle phenomena. Actually, he expressed the most uniformed and unscientific opinion possible, because he didn't even care to leave his room at the university to go to the location where the agroglyph was found to check it out with his own eyes - and mind. This is the fifth year in a row that he denies going to the field to investigate the formations, and the fifth year in a row that he condemns the phenomena. Did Diario Catarinense checked that out? No again. Besides, what kind of scientist gives an opinion about a strange phenomena, of any kind, without examining it? Further, his mention that "the agroglyphs are just pranks, such as what happened on the 70s in Europe" is itself a reason to make him look like a fool. So is anybody who doesn't have the necessary knowledge of the phenomena to condemn it fraud. I have defied Adolfo Stotz Neto to a debate and he never accepted. Why? About it all, it is very sad that a great moment is being ruined here. A phenomena that is genuinely appearing all over the world, and as such is being investigated by serious people, has finally started appearing in Brazil and those in place to make it be properly investigated and then, if confirmed, make their investigations known to the public, are the ones trying to ruin the image of a very serious thing.
