I think it's odd that it happened hours after he stepped down.. the first one to do so since the 1400's. I don't know. I'm skeptical about most everything and it is neat to ponder!

I might think it was noteworthy if it was in the middle of a bright sunny day with no cloud in the sky when lightning struck, but it was durning a storm.



And I respect the pope for stepping down. If he felt like he couldn't do the job properly, then he was very wise to leave the position.

I have to wonder if that was the true reason he stepped down.

It may not be. The Vatican and the Catholic church is all kinds of shady.

I saw the state house in my old hometown get struck by lightning several years ago, and it burned out a big chunk of the building.



It was pretty cool, but as far as I know there had been no major religious upheaval going down in there that day.
