Surprised this hasn't been posted yet, the pics are awesome to see.....

This occurred a few days ago as a spectacular electrical storm lit up the sky






Well... He is Jesus!


This is the staggering moment that the 100-foot tall statue of Jesus that towers over Rio de Janeiro was hit by lightning.

The Christ the Redeemer statue was struck in the early hours of Wednesday morning as a spectacular electrical storm lit up the sky.

The iconic statue is the largest stone-work of Jesus ever built and stands more than 2,000 feet above Rio on top of the Corcovado Hill.




Enjoy!!!

Wow! What's that statue made of that it can stand up to that assault and not blow into a million pieces?

I presume it's equipped with a lightning rod built in?

There's a religious commentary or joke in here somewhere, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

Thanks, I forgot to post that

The last time it had damage from lightning was in 2008
At least this time it was only the finger, the Almighty One at that!!!!!!

WTH????
I caught your little 'edit' snip

First of all, I don't care about S&F
I posted this after I did a search, which nothing came up and posted this for ME for future reference
As well as others that might find this interesting that have NOT seen it before either

Excuse me for inconveniencing you by having you look at this thread
God forbid

Have a nice day

Don't take it personally as no offense was intended. It's been that kind of week on ATS. I have a rule I use before posting anything here and it saves me a ton of time searching ATS. It goes like this: If the picture, story or item is more than 48 hours old then it has already been posted lol.

I need to take a break from here anyway. There is not a single item on the NEW page I have not seen for well over a month now. I don't get out enough this time of the year lol.

Yahweh is obviously a little pissed about us breaking the 2nd Commandment!!

He must be more than a little upset his omnipotence failed to bring it down.

You beat me too it.

IMHO, I think this gives me faith that God does not exist like most revere him to be.
