Oh, not the old, threadbare god of the gaps argument again. Really? Aren't you embarrassed to post such intellectually vacant rubbish?

No. I am just saying that 300 years of science has not provided an explanation to replace the ancient belief in the divine generation of thunderbolts. Maybe it is time to admit that there may be more than just electrons behind the phenomenon.

Your fuckwit ancestors believed thunderbolts were being physically thrown from the fingertips of human-like gods. That’s been the full extent of religion’s contribution to the study of lightning, something people like you will try to obfuscate with your usual dishonest tactics. Scientific endeavour is rather more honest and productive than pulling god out of your sphincter every time we have a gap in our knowledge.
