I believe it's safe to say that this is proof of GOD CUMMING ALL OVER THE EARTH. That loud noise that accompanies it? His O-face.

simple explanation:
1. an electrical charge is contained in the clouds.
2. it releases its energy.
3. the energy that is released needs to find the nearest ground (ground is positive while the lightning is negative)
4. when the nearest channel reaches ground (first strike), it releases all its energy left called a re-strike (second strike).
the first strike produces thunder and is prolonged by the second strike

how is the ground positive? I thought it's just not negative which makes it relatively positive compared the the highly negatively charged cloud...

Most of us know how lightning works already. I am just saying that this is unnecessary information

Too bad lightning strikes actually go up. When a storm cloud discharges electricity to Earth, a small "leader stroke" zigzags toward the ground in about one one-hundredth of a second. Once it touches something-a tree, a pole, a barn or the ground- the electrical circuit is complete and a vast surge of electricity, the lightning bolt, roars up the path established by the leader stroke. Thus the lightning stroke generally goes from the highest object on the ground up to the cloud. It looks as if it happens the other way around-from the cloud to the ground. The human eye cannot follow the formation of a lightning stroke because it shoots skyward in about one-millionth of a second. What the eye sees is the electrical discharge of as much as 100 million volts of electricity, which heats the surrounding air to a temperature five times hotter than the surface of the sun - 30 000 degrees C (54,000°F).

This is the slowest lightning strike recording i have ever seen.  I mean, most    
cameras used for lightning strikes have to sacrifice the FPS rate for brightness    
adjustments, and some of them don't have a good FPS rate to begin with.  But the    
camera used to film this must be fukken awesome.

Life is really easy when you don't believe in gravity. I can fly everywhere I want.

The whole basis of Christianity is centered around the idea that we're imperfect though, the Bible says to love your neighbor, doesn't require you to socialize with them.

Again i got most my Knowledge from Veggie-tales so i can't debate about the bible itself it's just from what I've seen like in my area every Church is either really quite white people church or really loud black people church
