Some Bizzare and Odd things around us…

Beauty of the nature lies in viewer’s eyes. A photograph is just a way to show or represent that beauty. Here is a bunch of some wonderful pictures which are not only the example of  beautiful photography but are also a photograph of some miracles happening in the world.

You can also call it the creativity and innovation of photographer’s mind. I think it was at the peak while taking these pictures. Some photographs are just the example of wonder created by God.

Some are really very cute and heart touching. Some are the scenes which go thorough our are eyes almost everyday but we do not see them with the way these photographs want us to show.

I am simply in love with these photographs and I am sure you will too. Here are also some scenes which you might not get to see in your life ever.

Gibraltar Airport is one of the most extraordinary airports around the world.

Morning Glory – kind of clouds observed in the Gulf of Carpentaria in northern Australia.

The river above the river: Magdeburg Water Bridge, Germany.

Heavy fog in Sydney, which enveloped the whole city.

Skyscraper-Crescent Crescent Moon Tower (Dubai).

Photo of storm in Montana, USA, 2010.

Lighthouse guard in Mare, France must be one of the most courageous people on the planet!

Airport in the Maldives is located on an artificial island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

In northwestern Montana, USA. The water is so transparent that it seems that this is a quite shallow lake. In fact, it’s very deep.

This is a unique geological phenomenon known as Danxia landform. These phenomena can be observed in several places in China. This example is located in Zhangye, Province of Gansu. The color is the result of an accumulation for millions of years of red sandstone and other rocks.

From the outside it looks like.

 Balcony of floor 103 in Chicago.   Lost paradise in the Indian Ocean. Isle of Lamu. Favelas of Brazil. The boundary between wealth and poverty.

Banpo Bridge in Seoul, South Korea.

Lena Pillars. Russia, the Lena River.

Haus Rizzi – Germany.

Autumn camouflage.

In the city of Buford (USA) lives just one person. He works as a janitor and as a mayor.

Marcus Levine – slaughtering an artist in the literal sense. He creates his paintings by nailing a white wooden panel. At his latest series of paintings exhibited in a gallery in London, Marcus has spent more than 50 000 pieces of iron.

Paris computer games store. In fact, the floor is absolutely flat.

The longest traffic jam in the world recorded in China. Its length is 260 kilometers.

  Family photo.

This statue, created by Bruno Catalano, is located in France.

An unusual tunnel in California’s Sequoia National Park.

Day and night. The monument in Kaunas, Lithuania.

In the Chinese province of Shandong is a bridge across the Gulf of Jiaozhou. The bridge length over 36 km is calculated for eight car lanes, and is the longest sea bridge in the world.

In the resort town of Skagen you can watch an amazing natural phenomenon. This city is the northernmost point of Denmark, where the Baltic and North Seas meet. The two opposing tides in this place can not merge because they have different densities.

Twice a year in the Gulf of Mexico rays migrate. About 10 thousand stingrays swim from the Yucatan Peninsula to Florida in the spring and back in the fall.

The border between Belgium and the Netherlands in a cafe.

These trees grow in the forest near Gryfino, Poland. The cause of the curvature is unknown.

And this is the view down.

Dubai. The view from the skyscraper BurjKhalifa. The height of buildings is 828 m (163 floors).

Balloons in Cappadocia.

Desert with Phacelia (Scorpion Weed). Flowering once in several years.

Office of Selgas Cano in Madrid.

Restaurant on a cliff on the east coast of Zanzibar. Depending on the tide the restaurant can be reached both on foot and by boat.

Emerald Lake in the crater of an extinct volcano. Tongariro National Park – NewZealand.

Thor’s Well – “the gates of the dungeon.” CapePerpetua, Oregon. At moderate tide and strong surf, flowing water creates a fantastic landscape.

The world’s highest chained carousel, located in Vienna, the height of 117 meters.

  1. I think the Bent forest is awesome . I read up on another site that i cant remember right now , how it was done . lots of time and manpower .. this is a great share author !!!
     

  2. And those that aren’t are nature’s wonder. There is no need for god here. A belief in god shows a lack of imagination.

  3. cool buildings, you should probably take off the crescent moon building though, it’s just cgi. btw google truth of dubai

  4.  Or it shows the ability to have faith? And to have faith you NEED imagination. A surplus of love as well. A community. Sometimes only kindness is needed, not imagination. imagination has led to greed.     and plus, how does a belief in God show lack of imagination?

  5. Your link for Buford goes to the Wikipedia page for “Buford, Georgia”, which has a population of 12,225. You must have meant Buford, Wyoming, which is unincorporated.

  6. Though the traffic jam actually happened, the image is definitely faked, at least in places (good eye, dwinkle). If you look right at the center of the image, for example, it is pretty clear that the cars are being duplicated right next to each other.

    Very cool pix in general though.

  7. it’s clearly a fake, provide some proof that it’s not.
    if it was in the news, link to the news article.

  8. very good stating the obvious, you wouldn’t believe in god without having faith. Love, a community or kindness, nope don’t think they’re needed for believing in anything. And plus, how in the hell has imagination led to greed. Your a fool my good man, an ignorant fool Eli

  9. Faith can be used to defend any possible belief, even the most foul. In order to make sure the sun will rise in the morning you should sacrifice a human being and eat the heart while it is still beating. Just have faith!

    The idea that faith is a positive character attribute is ridiculous. Faith is a weakness that the insane or unscrupulous can use against you. With any subject other than religion you would likely agree with me, but religion gets a free pass.

    Rise above the lies you were taught. Faith is a flaw.

  10. Well if you believe man was created by God, then all of man’s creations are God’s creations by proxy.

  11. While I respect that others may have a lack of faith, and believe that society should allow for this, the needless cruelty about it so common among atheists is utterly baffling. At the very least, it shows that war and intolerance would not, as so many atheists protest, vanish if religion did.

  12. His use of this homophone is correct – ie indicating possession.

    You’re is a contraction of ‘you are’. These two sentences should help you to understand the correct usage.

    1/ “You’re a complete moron.”
    2/ “Your parents were complete morons also.”

  13. Dear Madara, when you’re correcting someone, please make sure you know what you’re talking about.
    ‘Your link’ is correct, and you’re wrong … :-)

  14. The Emerald Lake is in the crater of Mount Ruapehu, and the volcano is far from extinct, it last blew in 1996, I was there.
    Tongariro National Park – New Zealand.

  15. Your all a bunch of donkeys! how in any way has god or faith got to do with a couple of photos? take a second to read through the comments. you bunch of cunts.

  16. Also to be noted that the Emerald Lake in the “extinct volcano” is actually not extinct.. Its Mt Ruapehu in New Zealand and it last had active volcanic activity about 10-15 years ago.

  17. I agree with this. Although religion has been the cause of many wars throughout the years, if religion vanished we’d just find something else to fight about. War is part of human nature and that is that. People in power will always disagree and some people will always have more than other so there is plenty to fight about outside of religion.

    Also, a person above said that faith is a flaw but it isn’t. Blind Faith is a flaw. Following something so blindly that you can’t see why it’s wrong. Such as the children that are apart of Westboro Baptist Church, even though they know nothing about what they preach they still blindly follow in the hatred because it’s what their family taught them to have faith in and believe in.

  18. I agree with Eli, Religion stops scientific progress. Faith and hope are all illusions of your mind.
    Faith and hope does not have any actions.
    Actions creates worlds

  19. To Adrian,

    Many of the founders of modern science believed in a creator God and admitted that their faith in this drove their desire to understand more about the world we live in. As a result, they founded many of the modern elements of science and scientific theory. It is clear from other scientists in history that you do not need a faith in order to facilitate scientific progress, however if it is applied correctly does not impede it.

    Hope is also widely regarded as being the driving force behind what we do each day. It feeds our desires and allows us in a way to love. Also, hope in a belief or an action propagates that hope or action, therefore allowing it to occur in the first place.

    Finally to the above, faith in a belief will drive that person to live that faith more in their lives. I admit that this has lead to atrocities in the past but faith can have a great side too. Faith encourages us to do things that we otherwise will not or cannot do. There is an essay in this subject which I will not go into but I just thought I would contribute my two cents to the debate.

    Hope you all have a great evening!

  20. You guys are so cool, bashing religion on a webpage about photos from around the world. SO.COOL.

  21. A believe in god/gods shows, very often, lack of intellectual maturity and, also, insecurity. A lot of people have plenty of love to share and don’t feel the need to have faith in any imaginary supernatural being to be kind and caring. Imagination does not lead to greed; insecurity and immaturity does. Imagination leads to beauty and creation. Actually, there is god – I’m my own god. The day I die, my god dies.

  22. That’s not “Emerald Lake in the crater of an extinct volcano. Tongariro National Park – NewZealand.” Its name is actually Crater Lake. Crater lake is at the top of Mt Ruapehu. Emerald lake is a different lake.

  23. SHUT THE HELL UP.
    Why is everything a religious debate? Belief in God or a god does not make you dumb. Not believing in a god does not make you evil.

    It can never ever be proved either way. Just live your own damn life and leave other people alone.

  24. Those that argue “Science Vs Religion” have no understanding of either.
    a god is a principle which affects cause in reality, science is a principle which affects cause in reality. Both are one in the same.
    All science developed from a desire to understand our universal environment and was initiated by questioning why we exist and more so, why we are aware we exist. it is conceivable that the spark of life that is conciousness is God.
    the problem with religion it’s lack of ability to evolve due to mans need to identify and label process. The age old argument about religion and wars perpetuated by atheists is a paradox. Religion never caused a single war…man did, anyone who says differently must believe in a God as Religion is the product of man whether there is a God or not.
    To say that ‘belief in god shows a lack of imagination’ is defeatist to the proposing atheist, as your argument should be ‘belief in god shows much imagination’ if god is an imaginary entity.
    In short anyone who claims to know better one way or the other is retarded.

  25. but if God is a creation of man’s imagination then all things created by God are created by man by proxy.

  26. To Mark,
    Sure some of the these scientist believed in a god, the latest contributor to actually believe in a god, was Newton but he was only a diest, this was before the b2fh paper existed or the idea of the big bang theory, Einstein, commonly mistaken for having “faith” sarcastically believed in a cosmo god, claiming that he believed in the laws of nature and its forces. Believing in a god had nothing to with there discoveries, if anything it they used that as motivation to prove incorrect. To quote the great Neil Tyson “god is the receding pocket of scientific ignorance”
    Now to the subject of faith, the literal definition of faith is believing in something without evidence, which obviously that isn’t how science works, you know that, why would you put that sort of mindset on yourself? Sure it is comforting to force yourself to believe in a deity, but if you do whats the point of discovery? Or living, if you are granted an eternal happiness?

  27. Instead of wasting all your time arguing religion, why don’t you spend a little time checking the veracity of some of these pictures — like, for instance, the Buford (“Population 1″) . . . except, when you click the link, it takes you to Buford, GA, population 12, 225 . . . . instead of arguing God, we’d be better served to question whoever put this website together.

  28. No words can express what I am feeling right now after looking at these amazing pictures.

  29. Wonder does not imply that man’s hand was not involved.

    I’m not going to argue for or against the God issue here, but for those who feel the need to say that something can only be a wonder if God were involved, you may want to consider who created man in the first place. This according to your beliefs. Hypocrisy is not becoming, nor does it prove faith.

    It doesn’t matter what you believe, a wonder is a wonder. As to the source of the wonder, that is for each to decide on their own. :)

    Blessed be to those who wish it, and fare thee well to those who would not,
    -Grey-

  30. The caption of the picture of Phacelia (Scorpion Weed) is deceiving. I don’t know about in other parts of the world, but Phacelia blooms every year regardless of rain in the Southwest, USA.

  31. Did everyone else miss this sentence.
    “Some are really very cute and heart touching. Some are the scenes which go thorough are eyes almost everyday but we do not see them with the way these photographs want us to show.”
    “thorough are eyes” just kills me I don’t know about you guys.

  32. These photos are amazing, real or not. But all the religion arguments following ruined them. Go bitch about that stuff in a forum about that topic. No one cares whether you believe in god or not. We came here to look at photographs.

  33. So many of these captions are incorrect. While the photography is stunning, the commentary is plebeian. The truthful descriptions, coupled with the pictures would be so much more astounding. (just check the Buford and burj al Dubai links)

  34. “to have faith you NEED imagination”

    Imagination is needed for all make-believe games… elves, fairies, supreme deities with strange obsessions to do with sexual behaviour, all manner self-delusion

  35. Imagination has led to greed… yet, a belief in god shows no lack in imagination…

  36. I know. It’s so boring. On every single article/photograph or posting…….there they are, the opposing factions slugging it out about religion. *sigh*

  37. 60 miles = 96.5 kilometers, not 260, as this website reports. Impressive, but not as impressive as it is made out to be.

  38. As Richard said, Religion is a creation of man not God. God gave us free will, the will to chose and so the things we create are of our own doing not God’s. And so the ignorance of the few christians who choose to start wars over Religion should not in any way dampen the belief that there is a God. I mean we all sin, just because someone is a christian doesn’t make them any better than a non christian. The only difference between the two is that christians are aware of their sin, it does not make them any holier. So do not think that christians look down on atheists, the few who do ruin it for the rest of us. But part of the christian belief is to accept people as they are and help them understand God from a christian perspective. Some people will not understand and that is ok. But if you are truely willing to understand or at least respect Christians and not come into a conversation about Religion with a ‘know it all’ attitude, then im sure you would be enlightened or at least understand christianity better.

  39. the link is showing the wrong Buford. The one in the photo is located in the midwest and last I knew it was for sale. A man and his wife were looking into buying it for $160,000.00 so the sign would have to be changed to say population 2. I saw this on a news report about 3 weeks ago. The info is not from the website:)

  40. Beautiful pics valid or not
    “You shall love the lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” ( Matthew 22: 37) This is the first and greatest commandment and the second is equally as important ‘Love your neighbor as thy self’ (Matthew 22: 39)

    I believe in the Lord and God and my faith in him helps me in all that I do and all that I am. May the Lord bless all of you and bring you Wisdom and a Sound Mind to hear his words. In Jesus name Amen.

  41. Except that wisdom and sound mind are the opposite of faith. Implying that an idea of a being that has never existed, to “help” just implies that your help is really equal to zero. If you use mathematics and substitute in W, and S for Wisdom and Sound mind respectively, you get W+S=0 .
    Wisdom in this day in age means a deep understanding and realization of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to apply perceptions, judgements and actions in keeping with this understanding. It often requires control of one’s emotional reactions (the “passions”) so that universal principles, reason and knowledge prevail to determine one’s actions. Wisdom is also the comprehension of what is true coupled with optimum judgment as to action. Also the opposite of all religious faiths as religion throughout the dark ages actively sought to revert humanity to being ignorant of the world they lived in.

    Sound mind? That’s anyone who is not insane. Taking out the double negatives you get sanity. If 2000 poor kids pray for a new Ferrari every night for, oh 4 years and obviously do not get one. The only sane thing to do would be to STOP. The same idea goes for Gambling, Chain smoking, and cheating on your significant other. All are Insane, if you would like to continue to enjoy your current lifestyle.

    So, in essence. Open a cook book. Bake a cake. And prove that chemistry is for the sound mind, and be wise by throwing out the fairy tales.

  42. That’s just a book… a story… I like to be open minded but gods? Gods? Like GODS??? Please… Maybe there is a creator of the universe, a higher life form of some kind, maybe there isn’t! Whatever… why do people have to believe in a god/gods or in the absence of them? I don’t get it, much better to just have an open mind and if a god comes down here I’ll believe, if an alien visits me I’ll believe. Do you believe I have hair?
    And… if there is a god he’s proly an alien and people from ages ago just didn’t understand all the flashes and noises.

  43. Omg. I am so sick of looking at awesome pictures of wonders from around the world and seeing people fight and fight and fight. Can’t you all just be quiet and enjoy something? I need to stop scrolling down after reading a post…

  44. Maybe Chinese people all own the same cars… and drive them in the same order… Never overtaking…?

    Yeah that’s a stupid idea.

  45. So only Christians have God? The Muslims and Jews might not like that position very well. Look – God is an idea, not an entity… So is a pink giraffe, an invisible unicorn and the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Just get on with your lives and try to do some good when presented with the opportunity. Quit wasting time “worshipping” an idea. Dieties require too much energy.

    Imagine the amount of progress and wealth that would exist in the world if the time and money wasted on religion were put to useful endeavors.

  46. Why can’t everyone just enjoy the awesome pictures and not argue about religion? You aren’t changing anyone’s mind on here. So give your fingers a break and just don’t bother next time.

  47. To solve this quarrel,
    See how the believers in God vary from the non-believing Atheists in this post?! The believers tend to not have to prove their point because they have the faith that God is with them; as do I. Atheists (as proved) need evidence to disprove God. Their lack of belief and necessary scientific data and factual information is directly related with their negligible faith.

  48. The reason that we, as humans, sometimes believe that there cannot be a God is because of scientific logic. With logic, we try and define what is and what isn’t based on what we already know and can prove. But the fact of the matter is, God can’t be proved with logic (to an unbeliever) because that person has never experienced God. He’s an entity too great for us to comprehend, yet to a person who has Jesus in their life, closer than their breath. We keep trying to “prove” God- But “Trying to prove God is like defending a lion- He don’t need your help.”

  49. God made man, and gave man the ability and gift with the capacity to do these things. Therefore, everything is created by God. End of story.

  50. I read about it on another website, too! Are you talking about the curved trees in Poland? It’s actually caused by years of heavy snow fall when the trees are very young. When the snow melts, the trees grow straight, but the curve is left behind.

    At least that’s what I read. :)

  51. Evrulz123, the true believer realizes that *all* these are made by God.

    Humans were created by God, so whatever abilities and gifts they have are from, of, and by God.

    Don’t limit or denigrate and limitless God — if you actually believe in Him.

  52. Bryce, I went to the website for the national park in New Zealand and it does indeed talk about the Crater Lake there. It also mentions that there are only three in the world. I know about the one of that name in Oregon in the US, but not the third. Do you know where that one is?

  53. @Men, perhaps Kayela read the comments for the same reason I am — to see if others might add a bit more information about in the the photos, or maybe the inspiration they felt looking at a particular one, and so on. That is in keeping with one reading comments following a story such as this one.

    Maybe ease up a bit? :-)

  54. A’s girl, I suppose you think I’m supposed to fall down on my knees to bow and sing your praises to heaven for a completely IRRELEVANT comment?

    To quote the infamous but on occasion wise character from “Gone with the Wind,” Rhett Butler, “Frankly, My Dear, I don’t give a damn!”

    If you want to devote your time to restricting yourself to praising God — fine. Please have the minimal courtesy and respect to your fellow commentators and readers to stick to the story, not to witnessing, sermonizing, putting on your holier-than-thou act, and so forth. They belong at church — not in a discussion about a bunch of lovely photographs.

  55. All you have to do is walk out side and look around you ,there is evedence of Godly creation in any direction you care to look, but if your surounded by ugly city buildings, just look up.the sky day or night is evidence of a creator .with so much beauty and so much order in all forms of creation how could any one with a brain ever imagine there was not a power greater than man, behind it all..

  56. The universe is greater than man, you need a higher being to explain the order of universe, it’s a little more fascinating when you take god out of the picture

  57. but what is faith? Having faith is meaningless in an objective reality, if I have faith the world is flat, does that mean it actually is flat? No, because there are certain things that we can agree are objective. I hope that someday that the religion in America will drop to 0%, I don’t mean to be harsh this is how you were raised, I grew up a child of catholic parents, so I understand where you are coming from, its like Santa Claus, you believe in him, then once you grow up he’s gone.

  58. the dubai skyscraper is not real. It was never built. This is a computer generated image not a photograph.

  59. Agreed, this should not be about some religious vendetta / mission statement. Fake or not I think all these shots are awe inspiring.

  60. You could probly make them out yourself with 3d printouts, but printing a carpet… sounds difficult.

  61. Sounds reasonable to me, and far more appropriate to the article in question than the majority of these comments have been

  62. but WHY we have always to put God in everything????????cannot we just enjoy the beauty?????

  63. Irrespective of the God debate, surely no one can take away the fact that we live in a universe which is new to us, time being a man made thing and all that – how can anyone put forward a credible argument about other peoples’ beliefs? There are 7 billion + people on this planet and each and every one different to the other, and millions of other species that live and procreate on it too – we don’t even know yet what lies at the bottom of our oceans…because we are arrogant enough to believe that on this planet we are the ‘intelligent life’, why then do we cross swords, cause wars, feel the need to control, to govern, to take power, to TELL others what they should and shouldn’t believe in? We aren’t the intelligent species, we are foolish, sly, cunning and untrustworthy. We kill for pleasure, for greed, for money, for jealousy, for nothing. Don’t debate God, debate how lucky you are to be alive, why we can learn so much in the short time we are here, what other species can teach us, and let us not put others down for believing in hope, faith, charity, goodness, kidness or indeed God. We all end up the same way, whether you want to believe it is with 7 vestal virgins, in a different dimension or re-birth, who are we really to argue?

    I heard a man on the radio on Monday categorically state “if anyone believes that there is other intelligent life out there in the universe, they want their head testing, we are the only intelligent life”, my belief about that person made me think “what an arrogant twit of a man”, but I don’t expect you to agree with me!

  64. Instead of wasting your time complaining about all the religious talk. Why not care to read through the existing comments because that has already been brought up three times.

  65. @Dan Crawford I also notice the difference between believers and non believers. Believers comments tend to be relaxed and confident. Non-believers tend to be defensive and seeking proof or disproof. Everyone chooses for themselves. I belive in Jesus Christ. I’m not trying to force my God onto any of you because you all may believe what you want, but, (non believers) if Heaven is real then what are you going to say when you get to hell? If it isn’t real then what do you have to lose? Everyone has faith. Christians have faith that there IS a God and athiest’s have faith that there isn’t.

  66. I have to agree with Eli. It is foolish to think thre is no God. All you have to dois look around at His creation. He created it all. Open your eyes and your heart, and think about it for a while.

  67. You are going to regret what will happen in the future to unbelievers, because God will be there to talk to you about your beliefs. We will all face God in the future. I suggest that if you have a Bible you read it and learn a few things about God. It really is interesting.

  68. Wow! Awesome collection of photos!!! Some truly amazing sights! I need to travel more and see some of these things in person!

  69. The images from Dubai were created on a computer. The Crescent Tower is not finished and may never be made at all. Most images I’ve seen of buildings supposedly in the UAE are the same way.

  70. Just one detail : the lighthouse is the “Phare de la jument” (Mare’s Lighthouse is just its name) located in Ouessant, France’s western point. ;)

  71. Why can’t god talk to me now, instead of in the future? If it did, I might listen. Especially if it is interesting!

  72. Ever heard of the Law of Attraction? If you think positively, you’re more likely to have a positive outcome; think negatively and you’ll most likely drag yourself down and have a negative outcome. Think like a winner; have faith in yourself, if nothing else.
    It’s not enough to just DO things; you’ve got to believe in them.

  73. cool pix but i wonder why they attract so many faggots that wanna argue about God oh well nice pix lol

  74. Not exactley, god created Adam. He then created Eve from some part of Adam (I’m not completely sure, I think it was his rib). Although they eventually ate the forbidden apple and were forced to leave by god and then started “populating”.

  75. Think of it like this- everything had to be thought up, right? The shoes you’re wearing and the device this app is on, someone had to think of the idea of it to create it. My theory is this- if everything had to be thought up, someone had to think of the ocean, the land, the trees, etc. that person would be God.

  76. You guys don’t need to bash or threaten each other. Some people believe God created these wonderful things in nature, let them believe it and be happy. Some people believe no God created these things in nature, but they are beautiful nonetheless, let them believe it and be happy. This is not the place to be arguing.

  77. No. Dieties were created by men and women to explain things they didn’t understand at the time.

  78. “I am simply in love with these photographs and I am sure you will too. Here are also some scenes which you might not get to see in your life ever.” (unless you look at them now)

    Translation – “I am an idiot and you can too!” …

    You will in love with these photos?

  79. I have been a photographer for 50 years..I teach when I can …shoot when I can..listen to others who do…and am addicted to the medium of photography….because without it we would be much less stimulated by what we could not have seen these and other photos of the world around us ! john hoellerich

  80. Ok, I am an atheist but i have nothing against religion. If religion is what helps you to get up in the morning and is what inspires you to do generous and great things with your life, then i have no problem with your faith or religious views. Although, if you feel the need to proclaim man made and natural wonders alike to the divine intervention of go, there is a problem. You can believe whatever you like and, although I don’t share that belief, I respect that. To have such a ridiculously closed mind to not accept the wonders which man have created then you need to wake up and stop being such a little bitch on the internet.

  81. Superb Pics,thanks for sharing this is definitely going into my bookmarks !!!last post i tried didnt save for some reason so i apologies if you have an extra post by me :)

  82. I am a Christian and have no problem with atheism. A lot of atheists are articulate, well spoken, and considerate, such as yourself. It’s the snob atheist who come across as closed – minded.

  83. Just because everything we’ve made has been thought up doesn’t mean everything ever created was. People can’t comprehend many things we’ve never experienced such as something new being created by something other then a human-like designer. That’s where god comes in

  84. You know when you look at the mountains or the ocean or the night sky and you get that feeling of awe, that feeling of being so small? Did you ever see someone do something kind for no reason at all and feel your heart swell? Have you ever been driving with nowhere to be, with good music on the radio, and a laugh bubbles up just because it can? Ever played a game with a little kid just because they begged you to and ended up having just as much fun as they were, then wondered why you didn’t just let go like that more often? As you can see in these pictures, whether realistic or from some grand imagination, there’s plenty of beauty in the world. Let go. Free yourself from your own mind and just find the beauty. And when you find it, don’t wonder where it came from or why it’s there – you weren’t meant to question it and embitter it. You were meant to revel in it and make it last as long as possible. Show love, show tolerance – whatever your belief, whatever others believe, we can all agree that respect is highly sought after as well as laudable.

  85. I really never like to post to “faith” discussions (in fact, I never have) since I find it rather useless and since I have never once in my life seen or heard of someone changing their mind on this topic based on something someone said on an online argument.
    However, I am sometimes so amazed that in a world where everyone is being pushed to be “tolerant,” (goodness, I hate that word) people can be so mean to people with different views than theirs. The discussions on this board have done nothing except make one group of people feel more angry toward the other. Hardly anyone has been respectful of anyone else. What are you all getting from this? Tearing down peoples’ thoughts and beliefs is not getting anyone anywhere.
    I guess what I am trying to say is, your beliefs are not justified just because you can do a really good job of arguing with someone and putting them down on some random comment chain. No one is going to be “enlightened” to believe in God or to realize how “foolish” faith is. If you want to have respectful discussions, I am all for that, but these boards get so nasty so quickly. It saddens me. And frankly, as a Christian, I am ashamed every time I read an argumentative post by another “Christian.” It feels like people get so caught up in their emotions that they can’t think straight anymore. When I read these chains I realize why people put so many labels on Christians. Honestly, if I went off of what I see here, I would too. Though all of us have our faults, it seems it is always the people who are the least well spoken and/or the most rude that choose to be the most vocal to represent “Christians.” To be honest, when I read chains like this, there is no one I am more angry with than the people who are claiming to represent what I believe because they are missing the first and foremost important thing. Loving people.

    Okay, I am so sorry. This has turned into a rant. I just get so frustrated sometimes. I truly hope I haven’t offended anyone. Just maybe made you think a little about what you intend to do with the comments you post. If I have offended you, I am very sorry…but I really don’t want to argue with you about it. Please don’t insult me for having opinions. You have them too.

  86. I agree…it’s a waste of time. As an atheist, I just happen to believe in one less god than you do…no big deal.

  87. I have seen the Gibraltar runway crossing in action on my holiday at the island itself. It was crazy to watch and spent hours watching it. And it’s not just the crossing thats fun to watch but also seeing the planes curve around the island and land on the short runaway built on the sea.

  88. I thought it looked fake. Some computer games have better textures than the roof on that building.

  89. Okay, so these are awesome, but there are two definite fakes.
    1) Crescent Moon tower in Dubai does not exist.
    2) Lost paradise in Indian Ocean either does not exist or is a CGI reproduction of something that exists http://www.8778.cn/en/up_pic/200941714141858579.jpg
    But the image show is definitely CGI. The roof is just so damn smooth and perfect.

  90. The lighthouse picture has more to it than just some guy having a smoke. Actually they are in the middle of a storm and have been hanging out on the higher levels. The first level having already been washout when a wave busted the windows. The people at the light house are waiting on a rescue chopper and the guy at the door looks out thinking they were there. Unfortunately the chopper the picture was taken from isn’t the rescue chopper and there are more shots that follow but rarely seen. The wave dwarfs the ledge and the guy steps back in and shuts the door just in time or would have been washed away. All this can be read if you google the lighthouse picture name. Still amazing shot. And all the other pictures are phenomenal as well!

  91. There is place in Colorado a few miles from Pikes Peak called Bust pop 2 it is about 8000 ft elevation.

  92. Actually, a true belief in God is a belief in the metaphysical, which makes believers more imaginative than atheists. Atheists cannot believe in the metaphysical, for that is their whole argument against the existence of a God. Therefore, people are educated believers in a God are more open-minded and imaginative than atheists :)

  93. You are not insecure or immature if you believe in God. whatsoever! if you believe in something and commit to it shows more maturity to decide on something instead of not. plus how dare you say you’re God. you are nothing but a human with no supernatural powers and no love in your heart for other people… don’t put someone with your ideas in Gods shoes. i hope you all have fun bashing God on the internet, i feel sorry that you people have nothing better to do with your time the only reason you look to science to prove there is no God is to prove that there is…

  94. Actually I agree with you. To believe in a god requires imagination bordering on delusion. The best kind of imagination. Not only can I make stupid shit up, but I am going to force it down your throat.

  95. the piccy labelled Emerald lake in a extinct Volcano in New Zealand is in fact the crater lake of Mt Ruapehu a mountain that has erupted in 1995 and 1996 and again this century. Emerald lake is on Mt Tongaririo a few Kilometers away, a mountain who erupted a few weeks ago for the first time in 114 years.

  96. It actually has been proven. Well specific gods at least. There may be some crazy god we don’t know about, but watch Zeitgeist part 1. Most religions are based on solar and astrological patterns. Our ancestors believed in the heavens, which we now know are just starts and black matter.

    We’ve come so far, it’s actually quite frightening that so many people have their heads so far up their asses they actually believe in the Christian/catholic (and many other versions) god.

  97. MOST BEAUTIFUL TRUE PICTURES I’VE EVER SEEN COLLECTED AT ONE TIME ON MY FAVORITE WEB SITE. NOW AN UPDATE FOR YOU. POSSIBILITIES OF GLOBAL WARMING DELETED WITHIN 5 YEARS. GLOBAL WARMING IS CAUSED BY ALIENS USEING A NARROW BEAM THAT WIDENS INTO THE SIZE OF DAYLIGHT TO WEAKEN THE OZONE. IT IS STRATIGICALLY LOCATED IN A LOCATION WHERE ALL ICED AREAS ARE, WHILE OUR PLANET IS ROTATING IT COVERS ALL ICED AREAS. THE ALIENS ARE UNDERNEATH IN A LARGE CAVE ON A HOSTILE CONTINENT. OUR ENVIRONMENT IS THE SAME AS IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN LIKE BEFORE MAN’S PRESENTS. EX-PRES. BUSH IGNORED THE 43,000 SCIENTISTS AND LIED TO ALL THE LEADERS AT A SUMMIT MEETING PURPOSELY, BUT I CONTACTED MOST LEADERS AND BROUGHT THEM UP TO THE FACTS. (civilian GLOBAL COMMAND) HAVE A NICE DAY. MIKE

  98. Paraphrasing for the sake of argument. Go back and read the top and you will see he said that just to create an argument.

  99. After scanning down the list of comments, this is the best one I have read on here so far, no need to say more!

  100. Regarding the crater lake in Tongariro nat. park, its not extinct, in fact it only recently erupted a minor “lahar”.

  101. Faith may be a ridiculous notion, thinking completely logically. And you are correct in saying that faith can be used against you by those that live a lawless life. But truly, without faith, what are we? Never mind a lack of faith in God, but a lack of faith in your fellow man? A complete lack of faith in anything or anyone? A world that lacks faith is a world that lacks order. How can you claim to be so enlightened and ask us to “rise above” faith, and yet be so ignorant to the power that faith holds? Just as I have faith in God, you have faith in science. Without faith, we are nothing.

  102. How true, how true. It’s all mythology based on power-lust during Roman times to merge Attila the Hun with the witch doctor (Ayn Rand had it right).

  103. Nature created all of this…not a god(s). Men wrote the Bible…not a god(s).

  104. Sometimes one longs for 22-12 when everyone can finally go to their gods. The earth has done million of years without humans and will do so for another million years. And now i will try again to enjoy the beauty of the pictures. Thank you.

  105. Seriously? just enjoy the pictures. you dont have to put someone down for such little things. i love the pictures theyre beautiful (:

  106. lol, its not inability to believe the metaphysical, its understanding of multiple intertwined metaphysicals in conjunction of our perceived physical that’s the difference

  107. Faith in god shows stupidity and FEAR, that’s about it.

    Go talk it over with your imaginary friend.

  108. awwwwww, atheists are cruel?

    WHAAAA!!!!!

    Too bad religion is cruel too and responsible for som much superstition, death fear, ignorance, and idiocy in the past, AND the present.

    The dark ages anyone?

    Go cry me a river with the whole “aww, us poor religious folk”.

    Your filthy, gold-lined claws have been in politics and education for FAR too long.

  109. so tired of all these superstitious, uneducated simpletons talking about their myth of choice.

  110. oh, you believe in the Christian myth. What a selfish assumption that of the 1,000 religions on the planet (Christianity stole from most all of them), that you assumed yours was the one in question.

  111. All religions and sects are based on myth, after myth, after myth. Much of the mythology with Judaism and Christianity comes from the ancient Sumerians and the Epic of Gilgamesh…others come from ancient Egypt. Religion is a “crutch” for people that just can deal with life…as short as it is.

  112. Religion is undoubtedly the worst thing that has ever happened to mankind. It shuts down reason and the ability to face reality, to focus and to mature.

  113. Religion is the worst nightmare that has ever happened to mankind. Myth built upon myth built upon myth. Nature in our world is the great provider.

  114. Hey you guys should stop bashing religion it’s not like it affects your life
    It’s a sensitive subject that has gotten many a man in trouble
    And I’m just a twelve year old girl you guys should be ashamed of yourselves

  115. When y0u grow up, mature and learn to focus your thoughts you will, hopefully, come to realize that religion is one of the worst things that has ever happened to mankind. It’s used as a “crutch” to replace reason.

  116. “Experiencing god” is pure emotionalism running rampant. It proves nothing, nada, zilch. Faith is dependent upon religion which, in turn, is dependent on guilt. This guilt complex is self-induced, crazy and wrong.

  117. Absolutely correct. And part of nature is that all living things eventually die. We are here but for a very, very short time. Religion attempts to impair your happiness while you are here. But, in the final analysis, when you die your consciousness/awareness dies with you as your brain and mind are products of the material body. Big deal! Enjoy the best of nature that you can for this short span of time.

  118. Oh boy, intentionally starting a religious debate in the internet. Way to fucking go man. Now you’ve angered the natives. How about nobody bashes anyone religion or God or ANYTHING and we don’t be fools. Thank you. Now please, for the sake of not creating ridiculous fights whenever you type, refrain from using the words ‘God, gods, religion, belief, anything with the letters e, p, or f, and do not insult a large amount of people by saying that their faith, what might give them comfort and solace in life, what might drive them to better themselves, also makes them unimaginative.

  119. Greg, for the sake of debate, you have made so many logical fallacies that your argument is barely even valid anymore. In attempt to make the christians in this debate be in error, you have just ended up looking like a fool and a simpleton yourself. In any argument, an attack on the opponent’s personality is a logical fallacy known as “ad hominem” and just ends up making the one that has committed this fallacy look like an ass. So, I guess what I’m trying to say is that I would have much greater respect for your position if you were actually intelligently defending it instead of attempting to insult anyone that stands against you.

  120. I concur. Religion is a pox on humanity. It ranks right up their with communism, fascism, oligarchy (especially in the oligarchic, pedaphile-loving Catholic church), mythology, superstition, the magic-man-in-the-sky. Hopefully it will one day go the way of alchemy and astrology.

  121. And then the Easter Bunny brought them hidden eggs and the tooth-fairy came along and gave them quarters under their pillow while Santa Claus scaled down tight chimney with a veritable plethora of wrapped gifts.

  122. Look at the complexity of all of the universe. The chances of everything “evolving” as is are much slimmer and much harder to believe than there being some creator. To be an atheist (the belief that there is no god… yes its a belief) you are saying that you choose to believe in a significantly less probable outcome. That in and of itself shows ignorance.

  123. Complexity exists because that is the nature of the universe…it’s not suppose to be just one piece of matter floating in space. I believe what I see and/or what I can experience. I see no “evidence” of a god(s) or godhead. You do because that’s what you wishfully hope exists. We atheists believe there are no angels, demons, gods, fairies, hobgoblins or Santa Claus. That is not a belief ‘system’. It is the LACK of a belief in a non-existing ‘system’ which you opt to believe in. Simple. Belief is something demonstrable is just the opposite.

  124. You people really need to learn that not everything is related to god. Just look at the pictures and enjoy them. You people who fight over religion annoy the hell outta me.

  125. I agree. Many, many people can’t carry on a NORMAL conversation without saying something about THEIR god! I had an aunt that mentioned god in about every third or fourth sentence. I told her one day that that was NOT normal, and that actually she was driving people AWAY from what she deemed to be the truth. At some point in my younger days I started doing research and study on my own and discovered that so many parts of the Old Testament were cruel and wretched and that there are so many contradictions in the New Testament that there were errors everywhere. I became an atheist, and have enjoyed actually LIVING ever since. To HELL with dogmatic mythology and superstition.

  126. Rtaylortitle, Are you saying you believe in HELL? Why use a “religious” word when you don’t believe in God, heaven or hell?

  127. Are you an adult…or are you a child? Any NORMAL person would spot a metaphor when he/she/it read it. I don’t believe in a heaven or hell….oops, I’ve used those two words, ergo, I must actually believe in them. MJ…grow up, mature and learn to focus and try to improve on your public SCREWL education.

  128. And yet again it falls down to arguing about religion? Were you here to see dope pictures or find a pointless argument ?

  129. You can’t fix “stupid” or as Jimmy Buffett put in a song, “there’s no dumb-ass vaccine.” If someone doesn’t believe, they think they have to try an make everyone else look stupid. The fact that there is no proof either for or against the existence of God shows that they are closed minded when they insist that there is no God. There was a time when Galileo was when he said the world was not the center of the universe. I see a correlation here.

  130. What gives any of you the right to judge someone else for what they do or do not believe in? Whether it be science or faith, it can all be traced back to an individual wishing to understand the world as he see’s it.

  131. BIZARRE is spelled B-I-Z-A-R-R-E, not bizzare. Try to decide on one spelling. Using two looks stupid.

  132. To Noch, your ignorance is so very sad. I will PRAY for you and that you find your way. God bless you!!

  133. I heard another story, that they weren’t waiting for a rescue or anything, but he came outside to see what the helicopter was doing, and the wave did infact kill him.

  134. Wow expected the comments to be full of people bitching about the awful grammar of the writer of this article, and I mean god awful! So bad it made me cringe and now I’m left cringing about the pointless religion arguments dominating the comments.

  135. Hey big guy, Read the preamble next time. Poster mentioned god briefly as other subjects as well. Poster Loves this selection of imagery and it is very key in its sensation of surreal natural experience. I really liked the one were 2 oceans really couldn’t mix because they just had different density.

  136. Um okay this is not about religon or grammar this is about wonderful pictures so I’m actually going to comment on them. I really like the one with the two oceans meeting and the ones with the really tall buildings that were seen above the mist but really all of them were pretty awesome so, good job!

  137. So how about those photo’s? They sure were pretty, and I didn’t see god in any of them. :)

  138. why do you guys care so much? how do a couple of cool pictures lead to a full on debate about faith? get off you’re computers, stop arguing with people you have never met, and get a life. Because when it all boils down, no one really gives a shit what you have to say.

  139. Wow

    amazing Website n pics
    This website has many interesting stuff. Whenever i get bore I visit this site, coz this site offers Amazing info

  140. This is a very good article with a lot of good pictures. I’m glad I stopped by and took a deeper look at this. I think that Dubai. The view from the skyscraper BurjKhalifa. The height of buildings is 828 m (163 floors). is my favorite picture. Thanks for sharing.
