I recently watched the video http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/44075753#44075753 where a cloud materialized into the face of a human like form. I can see how early human would have thought that a God similar to how they appeared might have created the image in the cloud. Humans then began to look to the clouds and to more signs of what they inferred as a God that had visited them from the place where Gods and Goddesses lived. Soon after shrines went around the area where the God image in the clouds formed. Ancient rituals were practiced every time that a storm crept up hoping to appease the God or Goddess. Modern science then arose from these rituals or trying to make better facilitiesto appease their cloud God or Goddess for a good harvest or fruitful child bearing. This type of religious spirituality is the purest in its form as it combines a sense of ones surrounding and understanding the temperment of nature. Although everyon now knows that such formations are merely acts of nature it is still fun too look up and fantasize and write storties about what one sees in the clouds and beyond.
