In the Old Testament, God was known to lash out on his people with plagues involving unloved creatures. For example locusts, fleas, and flies in Egypt, snakes for ancient Jews, and so on.
These days, swarms of small insects falling from the sky are explained by heavy winds and other weather conditions. But still, why is it always only one species of creature? Here's some of God's modern day rage.
In 2007, Christian Oneto Gaona was on a hike with a friend in Argentina, when suddenly a shower of spiders fell upon them.
These kinds of "showers" aren't unheard of. Weird thing is that it keeps happening only in nature. What about the cities? Or is this just God's testing ground?
Lightning is commonly referred to as a classic God's wrath. But getting stricken on a clear day is about the strongest message God can send you. Lightning on a clear is real. In science they call it "positive lightning."
The lightning we see on a cloudy, rainy day happens when a negatively charged cloud sends electricity to the positively charged earth below. Positive lightning occurs because of the exact opposite dilemma. The cloud is positively charged and needs a negative spot to balance on. But because negative spots are less common here on earth, often times the cloud has wondered miles away from the original storm. When this lightning strikes, it can be up to 10 times as strong as regular negative lightning!
The Old Testament tell of a global flood. Well, in 1814 part of London was swept up by a flood of biblical proportions, except this time it had a twist-- it was flooded with beer!
The incident occurred when a 400,000 gallon vat of the liquid gold erupted at the Meux and Company Brewery for no apparent reason.
In 1816, it was reported that rivers were frozen over well into July and August all over northeastern U.S., Canada, and much of Western Europe. Crops died and people began killing for even the smallest morsel of food.
Turns out that all the fuss with the missing summer was because of Mount Tambora in Indonesia, the largest eruption in 1,300 years. The clouds of ash traveled so high and far that the sun was simply blocked off from a large chunk of the globe.
