Why I am afraid of the dark - by Jamon LiGori
I am afraid of what I don't know
I am afraid of what I can't see
I am afraid of what I can't feel
I am afraid of what I can't conquer
I am afraid of what might be
But most of all I am afraid of what I might become, in the dark!

Same for thunder, most people when hearing thunder get a scared or eary feeling when hearing it, i believe this is because for thousands of years thunder meant storms are comming which was a much worse thing when your working off the land and your shelter is very primitive and probably couldnt take a beating from a large storm.
Just my opinion

I think most Roman Emperors feared thunder and lighting
Its well known Augustus for example was extremely afraid of thunder and lightning

How'd you like to wake up at 3 am with a start and look around and on top of your belly there, floating, is a quarter size ball of light with mist inside it?
This happened to me- I woke my husband up and he didnt see it. I was fully awake.
The light hovered over me for a long time and i fell asleep (or was put to sleep by this thing).
I leave all the lights on. No more creepy light balls. Whatever the heck it was it has never come back!
...Most of us also become afraid of the dark at age 3 or 4,
and gradually overcome it to varying degrees.
