I look up and see this long flat cloud moving along.. And there's like.. This person cloud. Person cloud is just taking a stroll to another person cloud. Of course the religion shouts "he will come in the clouds!"
Now. Clouds freak me out. Yay!
I just can't seem to shake off this religion.

Just tell yourself that the entire concept of God is nebulous and insubstantial. Nothing to take cirrusly. Just a lot of vapor.

.... dammit, I feel like there was an opportunity for another pun in there that I mist.

Whew... glad this isn't a chemtrail thread.

It'll just take some time getting your brain acclimated to non-religious thinking. It took me about 3-4 years to completely purge that out of my life.

It's the boogieman syndrome. Using fear as a weapon of mass control.

Shake off. Curse it, make fun of it... eventually it will fade.

I love clouds and storms, the raw power of nature is amazing. I hope you can enjoy it again some day.

Also educating yourself on the Bible and the culture of the time will make this whole process go a lot faster. Education kills superstition each and every time.

I never thought about it that way. I love storms though, unless they damage stuff. I relish a good thunderstorm or clouds pouring over the mountains. I never see them as a sign though.

i guess its just because of how i was taught. i mean my last church nearly preached on nothing but the end times. my dad went with me once and said he would never go again. he said everything was a sign of end times to the preacher. like a tornado ripped through a town once.. end times. the earth quakes.. end times. a semi driving down the road was end times.

Yea, clouds don't bother me until they look like this on the radar.
