I used to believe that when it thundered, it meant the devil was beating his wife.
My mother always complained about the rain ruinning the pavimented roads and making holes in them. The idea that the water could make the holes sounded ridiculous, so I believed that when the thunders fell to the road, they made the holes.
Also, thats why I was very afraid when I was caught outside in a thunderstorm, regardless if I was in a car or in a building, the only place that was safe was my house.
I used to belive thunder was the angels bowling. Whenever there was a big clap of thunder an angel had made a strike. I always celebrated for the angel. I would envision the angel doing the disco to flashes of lightning.
When I was little and it would thunder. My grandma would say it was angel in heaven bowling. If it was lighting it was a spare and thunder was a strike.
Every time it thundered and rained I used to believe that God was passing wind and "peeing"!
i used to beleive that in a bad thunder storm, the thunder was the sound of nearby buildings crashing to the ground after being hit by lightning. I would just wait for it to hit and destroy our building, but after the storm ended, and I had a chance to servey the neighborhood, all the buildings seemed to be ok. So where did that big crashing sound come from?
I was told as a kid that when it thundered, God was playing basket ball. LOL!
I used to think thunder was caused by clouds banging into each other. (I'm still not absolutely sure this isn't true!) I also believed that the wind was caused by the trees waving their branches around--and am amazed to see how many other people believed the same thing!
also me and my friend once were at school aged about 5 and it was thunder andd lightning. and i remember us asking the teacher if the thunder was god using his hoover and microwave or if he was angry
When I was about 2 or something, I thought that God had this huge pet dog up in heaven. So I ended up thinking that thunder happened whenever the dog was running away from God and the rain was the dog's pee. ^_^;
when i was young, i jumped at the sound of thunder. my mom calmed me down by telling me that the clouds were bumping into eachother, and hugging
When we were younger, my brother and i thought that thunder was when god was counting all of the sins that we from the last thunder storm. So, at every thunder storm, we would count the number of thunders there were, and we figured that was the amount of sins that we did.
i used to believe that god was having a wee when it rained and the thunder was the chain was being flushed also i thaught lightning was god throwing angles from the sky so fast they turned blue and you could not see them
I used to be terrified of thunderstorms when I was a child. Then one night one of my moms good friends came over to babysit. There are one heckuva thunderstorm. She noticed I was scared and told me that thunder was angels clapping and lighting was God shining his flash light. It worked; I was never again afraid of a t-storm.
I used to believe that thunder was the angels bowling, so I assumed a few other things, too. Lightning was either them having disco bowling, or somebody was dropping lightbulbs on the ground. And of course, all that bowling made them thirsty, so they had to have water! Rain was them dropping their drinks, and hail and snow was the ice in the water! Tornados were fans turned on, too.
My dad listens to rock, so he used to tell me that when it thundered, it was God bowling against the sinners. You know, like the song. Angels and sinners play every day, every night. To this day I don't understand the true meaning of that song.
My mom would always tell me that when it thunder and lightening God and the angels were bowling and that when the lightening hit God had made a strike. Later in life I told my children this and it helped them not to be afraid of a thunder and lightening storm.
my dad used to tell me that when it thundered it meant that god was really angry and was throwing a temper tantrum.
i used to believe that rain, was god emptying his water tank, thunder was god shaking the last dregs of water out of the tank and lightning was god changing the light globes..lol boy was i a fool
Thunder was the angels shaking their blankets out. Rain was the fairies crying.
