I remember that movie.What followed wasn't pleasant
Ed, Keep Your Eyes Closed !
Unlike the beautiful and inspiring Aurora Borealis, this "Asperatus" cloud appears menacing. Looks a lot like a desert landscape turned upside down. –– Almost as if an inverted image of the Grand Canyon were looming above our heads instead of below our feet, and about to bury us with its awesome contents.When the well-known Negro Spiritual tells us, "Ezekiel saw the 'wheel' way up in the middle of the air,", might it not have been a mysterious formation of gases in the sky not unlike these "Asperatus" clouds?Likewise the beloved "Star of Wonder, Star of Light , Star of Royal Beauty Bright" that guided the Holy Family and the Three Wise Men to the manger in Bethlehem?"Eye hath not seen, ear hath not heard, neither have entered into the heart of Man the things that God hath prepared for those who love Him."But yes, Kid, these bizarre, majestic, awe-inspiring expressions in Nature should serve to remind us that there's a great deal we don't know, and that "Something" far greater than we could hope to imagine is governing the Cosmos, and that "Something" should serve to humble us, and makes more curious and less certain.It is the arrogant, cocksure attitude of the Left in its blind devotion to "Science," which they regard as far superior to anything so "naive," "uneducated," and "unenlightened" as faith in God, that arouses so much hostility in me towards the Left. They routinely accuse "us" of "living in a bubble," but who could be more insular, more self-absorbed, more conceited, more arrogant and more narrow-minded than they?
FT, EXACTLY..I find it humorous when mortals stand up and proclaim that they Have the Answer - The Divine Explanation. lol.
Thanks, Kid. Most of 'em not only don't know The ANSWER, they don't even know The QUESTION. ;-)
That Asparagus cloud sorta resembles a shirtless Putin riding a steel playground elephant on a bouncy coil. cool.
DeBlade, this was actually me in a jet powered wing suit on a mid summer night's dream day. Z dared me to do it.
I've looked at clouds from both sides nowFrom up and down, and still somehowIt's cloud illusions I recallI really don't know clouds at all.
The more I see, the more I yearnTo better understand and learn,And yet, Alas! I only knowThe more I learn the less I know!
Cube. Excellent! Moons and Junes and Ferris wheelsThe dizzy dancing way you feelAs every fairy tale comes realI've looked at love that way..And, there are clouds none of us have seen.
FT, Wouldn't it be great if stupid people could realize how much they don't know?
A hallmark of stupid is that they don't get that they're stupid. We just better steer clear of them.
I keep my distance Cube.
