I cannot help but find this amusing--and wonder if there's some sort of higher significance.

Make sure you read the comments. Some are a riot, some will make you weep for the future, a good chunk are both. :/

Over 15,000 comments! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/yikes.gif) I don't think so.

I looked at a few of them, they seem the typical atheist vs. Christian bashing.

>>"It will be back, but this time we are going to try for something fireproof," - absolutely priceless!

i read the comments:

"it looks like Jesus was sinking in mud, shouting "Help me Father...I am sinking...I am sinking!"

talibangelists? - hmmmm

apparently it looked like it was made of butter? - "big butter jesus" - a heavenly comment on OIL?

"Thou shalt not make an graven images." - point taken, literally

"It was the wife's idea for the statue?" - priceless again

"A hunk a hunk of burning love" and "Honk if you think Jesus is hot"

and then someone makes political statement, and it devolves into non-thinking verbal diarrhea, which was a nice snack ;F

I liked the suggestion that someone build a six-story statue of Zeus and see if that gets struck by lightning. I'd volunteer, but I think my HoA would have a problem with that as it violates pretty much all of the CC+Rs.

I personally do not believe in jesus or the christian dogma. But it is pretty crazy that lightning strikes that statue. In my own theory it could be another god/godess that are angry that people are worshipping a mere profit and treating him as a god. There have been many profits thorught history just like jesus but im not 100% sure how he made it so big in today's society others might know on here but im still learning. Or it could be to scientific that how the hands were pointed up towards the sky it was a quick way to the ground. Or if you believe in the rapture many would take this as simply another sign that the end is near. Which is quite weird in itself with the 2012 theory's.

This is the comment I left:
Can I just say that this whole comment chain is pointless sniping at each other's bull-headedness??? Arguing frantically online won't change anyone's opinion on what happened, how about we shut down the racket unless there's something meaningful to be said?

Then I got messed with by people so I replied:
Why is it that people are thumbs-downing this??? I'm just saying neither side will back down; this is mind vs. spirit, one can't live without the other and the two clash constantly. It won't. Solve. Anything. Harmony without is harmony within.

The thing is, this is a battle neither side will win. Why are we fighting it? We all know there are those with "tunnel vision" of sorts that commits them to one course throughout life and a change in that course throws them against the tunnel wall. Since they build the course, they don't want to change it. Hence: it never changes. People never change if they aren't willing to go through spiritual, mental and even physical crises. The fact is, most people are too timid to handle that so they never change. It's a sad thing, but it's the truth. It's killing me a little bit (IMG:style_emoticons/default/angry_pissed_off_emoticon.gif) and i think people need a serious attitude check.

Of course it is. Couldn't you tell by the way the fire burned Jesus Christ? Its clearly a prophetic sign that he comes agian. Recall Robert Frost's poem, or even Noah's Ark, that first it comes by frost, then by flame? Well, this is clearly a sign of the apocalypse! Prepare your seven chakras for the aquarian age!

exactly!!! - and it is very sad, then there are the ones that exploit that fear for their own gain which imo is worse - the trick is to step out of the drama, to realize that in this time stream there will be ones that live, and ones that die - advanced: realizing this and stepping out of the time stream is the axe that severs their cord (shout out to ioe! folk) - there are others gathering death energy from such as the gulf oil spill to power their destructive dreams, and readying their armies to be among the ones that live - (IMG:style_emoticons/default/fie.gif) - there is no conflict, but only outside is there no future (IMG:style_emoticons/default/doh.gif)
