Coincidence does not cause correlation.

I'm glad to see that God likes to make hearts in the sky, but perhaps His time might be better spent saving us from the fiscal cliff.

It's not a coincidence, it's not god sending you a message - it's pareidolia

Short version - the human mind is wired to look for patterns in randomness.

People must have freaked the fark out, straight killed each other back in the day over coincidental bullshiat like this..

It's simply a matter of perspective, about a mile away from the location of the videos, those same clouds were in the shape of a chocolate starfish..

The word you're looking for is Paredolia, subby.

My buddy who was deeply religious used to bug me about being an Atheist. Finally I broke down and explained my take on the Christian version of religion. I explained it like this.

God is standing on the side of a very long and dangerous river. In his hands he's holding a baby (you.) He tosses that baby into the river. The baby is fortunate enough that he doesn't drown, but does spend a long time being tossed against the sharp rocks. The baby grows and calls out to God for help. God does nothing to help but just keeps walking along the river bank, following this kid as he's brutalized against those stones. Meanwhile God keeps shouting to the now adult guy that he better love God, and not just pay lip service, but love him deep down in his heart. But the river is so loud, and the rocks are so sharp that the guy in the water can't see or hear God. But he does keep screaming for help. But God, does nothing. Meanwhile, at the end of the river is a waterfall that crashes down and down and down for all eternity. It is thick with jagged stones and boiling steam...the only way to avoid it is for God to believe by the end of the river that you love him unconditionally and with all your heart and mind and soul even though he's never gotten a message through to you or answered any of your calls for help. Finally, because the fellow in the river couldn't find that love before the end of his life he topples over the waterfall to spend an eternity experiencing the pain of being shredded on those jagged stones.

So, I said to my buddy, that doesn't make sense. Even with our primitive minds, we can understand that no loving all powerful father would ever submit a child to such torture and then reward him with eternal pain just because the child can't love a father who was never there for him.

My buddy doesn't bother me about being an Atheist anymore....point of the story, that's a cloud, not a sign from the sky wizard that he loves us.

When a mass's shape shapes a mass, you're probably in the south.

wouldn't it be "a mass's mass shapes the shape"?

What I was thinking as I watched that.. "it would be kinda funny if a bunch of those people end up going blind from staring at the sun too long"

euphemism for blind faith I guess..

Damn, I was going to say it looked like Mickey Mouse, but then Luke shuts the door on the Boobies. I still can't stop laughing.

Damn. Done in one is all I meant to say. Nobody wants to shut the door on Boobies.

So that DOESN'T look like a heart shape? Is that what you are saying? That everyone who was there and everyone who sees the video missaw the same randomness in the same way?

c'mon now.

Misapplied theory is misapplied.
 
2012-12-20 05:48:15 AM  

I sound fat: everyone who sees the video missaw the same randomness in the same way?


let's see.....we have Mickey Mouse, The "hair monster" from bugs bunny, the Albanian flag, a butterfly, and an upside down butt all in this thread
 
so no. not everyone has seen the randomness in the same way.
 
/also, you can't "missaw" randomness.
 
2012-12-20 06:08:45 AM  
"Amazing"? That was a puny nothing of an uninteresting, totally unamazing cloud that I wouldn't have noticed even if you'd paid me $5 to look up at that moment. Hell, I see and dismiss those every day here in the rainy Pacific Northwest.

If it was shaped like an AT-AT I'd be impressed, this? not so much...
 
2012-12-20 06:57:43 AM  
This is proof that God is the ultimate troll. He doesn't have time to save 20 from being murdered but he he can create heart shaped clouds on cue. You mad bro?

I'm convinced all hardcore religious people are dumb. Why don't you take a plane ride next to it, I bet it looks like nothing. It's like the big dipper, it doesn't look like a dipper from the moon, it's perspective.

You guys worlds must really blow and be totally depressing.

That statement is certifiable if you are a TFer. And if you have to be told why then you don't deserve to know.

Why do the wisps to the right of this cloud look so much like a smoke trail?
 
2012-12-20 08:18:24 AM  
When I was about 17 I was tripping on about 4 hits of acid, and I was starting to peak on that shiat, too! I looked up at the mountains and swore the clouds formed into the Virgin Mary carrying baby Jesus on her back and she trekked over the mountains. I had a disposable camera, like I normally did when tripping balls, and snapped a picture.

It would be years before I had the film developed, as I had forgotten about it, but when I did I started going through them. At first I didn't know where the pictures were from until I got to the one I took of the mountains and the clouds, and it was then I realized: Boy, howdy, I was frying some serious balls, because it didn't look anything like I thought it did in my drug addled brain.

The moral of this story is: Your brain, whether on drugs or not, will make you see what it wants to see and will produce the chemicals needed to make you believe what you are witnessing is more powerful than it really is.

God damn it, I accidentally watched that and now I believe in Jesus. Now I have to go have gay sex and do cocaine again.

Sun. Clouds. People don't get out much do they.
 
2012-12-20 09:31:09 AM  
What bugs me the most is that every single person there will head back to their cars convinced that God really is watching over us.
 
2012-12-20 09:38:44 AM  
As an aside, if Jesus ever did ride down in glory not a single person would actually see it firsthand. They'd all be looking through their phones.
 
2012-12-20 09:41:51 AM  
This word 'amazing' you keep using. I don't think it means what you think it does

Here's how you use natural phenomena to religious effect

/ coolest scene in an arguably cool show.
 
2012-12-20 10:43:57 AM  
I love this rationale. "There is a cloud that looks almost vaguely like a heart while we're having our service about trying to force our religion in to politics. IT MUST BE A SIGN JUST FOR US, not for the thousands of other people who are seeing the exact same thing!"
 
So, this supreme deity takes time out of managing a universe roughly 93 billion light years across, billions of galaxies, hundreds upon hundreds of billions of stars and associated planets, but It's taking a moment to come to this insignificant speck in order to influence a small bit of moisture in the air for just that group of people.
