My science teacher was clearly mistaken in his explanation! We've had weather-control dooms-day devives all along - they have been right under our noses the whole time. I think it's time that we harness this power!
Thanks. That does make sense. Your translation that is, not Manss' silly assertion.

For myself, I am going to stick with natural explanations for weather and natural disasters. Things like pressure zones, moving continental plates, that type of thing.

Just thought a bit more about this.

Imagine if this were true. The only way to to predict the weather would be to peak into homosexual bedrooms. No sex, good weather. A few people having sex, partly cloudy. Lots of sex, bring your umbrella.

Heh heh! I proposed this strange theory of Manss' to a friend and he agreed to give it a go. My neighbor, a former botanist from Sarasota's Selby Botanical Gardens, was excited at the prospect this offered for his collection of rare plants and the money he would save on his water bill, so he was more than happy to spend a small amount of money (that would have been reserved for his water bill) on a few bottles of wine to help lubricate this very scientific, controlled experiment.

Alas! Manss' proposed theory seems to be a failure, and my neighbor is out the cost of some liquid happiness. My friend, on the other hand, had a good time anyways.
Perhaps we are missing some crucial aspect in the ceremony? Perhaps the amount of participants?

Sadly, you actually believe this stuff. The entire Lot story and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was always just an allegory (look it up...) designed to frighten the goat-herding masses into subjugation. As usual.

You really are down in a dark and uninspiring cave, Manss. I pity you for having to live with such a tragic, frightening and un-educated world view.

I didn't take this one, it's an Asperatus cloud. Awesome, rare and totally the work of Mother Nature.
Very lovely, Pamela! Tried to rep you on it, but nope. Not for now anyhow.

But... don't I see a Satan's Head in there??? I'm sure......

Most of us know the story behind man's creation - the one that began when Allah created Adam. That story is narrated in detail in the Quran and also mentions the incidents that followed man's beginning. After Adam was created, Allah told Iblees (one from the Jinns) to prostrate to Adam but Iblees refused to follow Allah's orders. That was also the beginning of evil when Iblees took on the role of Satan and started misguiding men and women.

Reflecting on that event is important to understand the reality about Shaitaan (Satan) and how Satan is active in our lives. The article below provides that background and how Satan pushes us toward temptation as well as plays with our reasoning abilities to make us argue against the truth and the commandments of Allah.

What's notable is that despite actively engaged in misguiding us, on the Day of Judgment, Satan will state the truth about what he really believed all along. Allah tells us in the Quran (Suarh Ibraheem) about what Satan will say (to mankind) on the Day of Judgment.

"And Shaitan (Satan) will say when the matter has been decided: 'Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, and you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Satan) as a partner with Allah (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers)'" (Surah Ibraheem: Verse 22)


For those of us who fall into Satan's trap often, this is something to ponder about. Even Satan knows that what Allah has promised us is the truth. Instead, Satan will put the blame on men and women to have followed him.

Read the article below for more on this and to learn some of the ways that can prevent us from falling in Satan's trap.
