Fire Devil

The YouTube clip below shows a rare “fire devil” in Australia. The 100-foot phenomenon was captured by filmmaker Chris Tangey near Alice Springs, Australia.

The fire devils work more like dust devils than tornadoes. They rise from preexisting hot spots in wildfires and the rising air forms a vortex.

One has to wonder how many religious sightings were in fact just weather phenomenons like fire devils. Consider The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed” (Exodus 3:2)

  1. My brother suggested I may like this web site. He used to be totally right.

    This post actually made my day. You can not believe just how so much time I had spent for this information!
    Thank you!

  2. Looks like quite the event. Try 480 volts, three stage power at sea on a steel hull. Hot.

  3. Without science there are Gods everywhere.

    I could make a case that this is the middle finger of God giving a big F- you to whatever nearby citizen disrespected the local shamen. (or about 1million other things).

    Imagine what power the ability to predict eclipses gave the astrologers in ancient days.
    I understand Pat Robertson has the power to alter the path of hurricanes.

  4. Yes it is interesting that the occurrence of supernatural phenomena is inversely proportional to the understanding of science and the presence of cameras. Video cameras will do more to kill superstition in all its forms than just about anything else.

    I read that some church is claiming that they pray-healed an amputee & a new limb grew . . . sorry, they forgot to get pictures or even any medical records to verify this miracle but you can take their word for it because Christians never lie.

  5. Prof,

    Just imagine a world without electricity and the only natural illuminate the full moon, the stars and day…… I imagine people would be speaking that God spoke to them in many ways……. But most are easy distracted…..

  6. Talking about desolation. What a Phenomenon ! Good thing it happens in places it happens in. Desolation is the word.
