untaken_name: Right, because you need a whole science dedicated to looking out the window and observing the weather. Maybe if they didn't pull that "30% chance" BS they could be a real science. You can say there's a 30% chance of rain every single day for the rest of time and never be wrong. That is hardly science.


Exactly.. why pursue such a foolhardy concept when we have the Bible to tell us how to interpret the weather. I, for one, accept still hold on to my 100% certainty that droughts are caused by witchcraft.

That's some fine reporting there Lou
I didn't realize before this that journalists were actually this farking retarded. On the other hand, it is Florida.

Actually, that's all science is, was, or ever will be: Percentages.

Science doesn't prove certainties, only high probabilities. The likelihood of things to occur in the future based on the statistical evidence of them occurring in the past.

Yeah, it looks like an angel. I thought so too when I saw the photo.

The difference being, I thought "Wow, that CLOUD looks like an angel, how neat," and promptly dismissed it from my mind.

Just because a natural phenomenon looks like something else doesn't mean there's a Divine Being involved. Just imagination.

I'm sorry but if you are so against meteorology that you don't think it is a science then can you please ignore all tornado sirens, storm warnings, hurricane warnings, etc. Because clearly, nobody can accurately predict these things since it is just not a science.

I mean, weatherman said it was gonna be mid 70s today and it was mid 70s. If I just had to GUESS on what a day in mid march would be I would say 50.

But anyway, the angel cloud. Seriously who gives two farks? Also, do these people never look at clouds because sometimes when I am out, you know, in nature and the big fluffy clouds are rolling and so fun to watch- they look like all kinds of things. How have you not seen an "angel" shape before?

Also- angels are terrifying they are like a weird non-human thing... not from Earth so pretty much aliens. And they can be really evil, case in point Lucifer! I don't trust em!

Right, because "looking out the window" and "the Bible" are clearly the same thing. I'm not religious, asshole, I just hate bullshiat. If I say there's a 30% chance of rain, and it doesn't rain, I said there there was a 70% chance it wouldn't, so I'm right. If I say it and it does rain, I said there was a 30% chance it would, so I'm right again. Rinse, repeat, that's meteorology for you. Sorry if that's your job and you don't like being called out on your bullshiat, but that's no reason to insult me, especially with such a ludicrous charge.

J. Frank Parnell: Angels are described as being pretty bizarre in the bible, or looking just like regular people. The popular image of them is just from some paintings people did, so anyone who praises or worships this is probably going to hell. If you believe in that sort of thing.


Pretty much. I'm not a believer, but if someone spots a cloud formation resembling one of these guys, I hope they snap a photo.

Journalists are born idiots, and pretty much remain that way their entire lives. Pareidolia is not just what Steve Massie called it. It's what it IS, you dipshiats.

What_Would_Jimi_Do: "Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel? "


"The ancient depictions of angels are more like traditional Eldritch Abominations than the fluffy cloud angels we see nowadays on Christmas decorations. The cherubim (yes, those cuties we all know today) have four faces - a lion on the right, an ox on the left, a human forward, and an eagle backward. They have four wings, with HANDS under the wings, their legs described as simply 'straight', and they have hooves. Also, the eyes. Everywhere. Even in the spaces between the eyes. Furthermore, 'Cherubim' means 'the living ones'. This means, in the eyes of the Hebrews, the most outstanding characteristic amongst the other orders of angels was that they are alive. Not so cute anymore, is it?  Contrast the Seraphim, basically cherubim with extra wings that are on fire, whose name means 'Fiery Ones', and the Ophanim that take this to the extreme, being wheels intersecting themselves while turning, also flying with six wings, somehow attached while they're turning, whose name means 'Wheels'. Remember, neither of these were understood to be alive by the Hebrews. Add to all this that God's guard for the Garden of Eden was a cherub armed with a flaming sword that turned in all directions.
Some interpretations of Seraphim hold that their divine fire radiates a light so ineffably potent that it will SEAR FROM EXISTENCE anything that approaches too close, including, presumably, lesser angels. That's still nothing compared to God Himself, for whom the Seraphim are the mundane equivalent of matches, basically shining as tokens of His glory.Seraphim are also described as dragon/serpent like (which led some experts to believe that they are loosely based on the goddess Wadjet from Egyptian Mythology, which is also a fiery snake). They consistently have six wings, and one of them is used to cover their feet. In spite of the fact that they are snake-like. Try figuring that one out. Note: 'feet' is often used in biblical Hebrew as a euphemism for the genitals.The Book of Revelation implies that there are angels so powerful and evil that God locked them up in a bottomless pit because He didn't want to bother with them. A bottomless pit; that means a pit with a definable end would not be enough to contain these monstrosities. And they're going to be let out one day, at The End of the World as We Know It.
Islam also holds the 'Eldritch Abomination' view of angels. The Prophet Muhammad was terrified when he saw Gabriel in his true form; God, through Gabriel, spends the first few verses of the Sura (chapter) Al-Muddathir calming him down.
This is why every time an angel appears to a mortal, the first thing it says is always 'be not afraid'."
