Crop circles are beautiful, don’t get me wrong; they are great pieces of art. But some morons want to see more than that. They want it to mean other stuff.

The 400-foot design was discovered in a barley field in Yatesbury near Devizes and depicts the mythical phoenix reborn as it rises from the ashes.

Investigators claim more formations are referencing the possibility of a cataclysmic event occurring on December 21, 2012, which coincides with the end of the ancient Mayan calendar.

The Mayans believed civilisation exists within a series of earth cycles of 144,000 days each with the 13th expiring in December 2012, resulting in Armageddon.

Crop circle enthusiast Karen Alexander, from Gosport, Hants, said: “The phoenix is a mythical creature which symbolises rebirth and a new era in many cultures across the world.

“Within the crop circle community many believe the designs are constantly referring to December 21 and its aftermath.

The community needs a reality based spanking.
