The UFo/Tornado Connection
In light of the recent flurries of tornadoes in the Southeast, killing twelve people (that we know of), I did some self-edgimication.
Rather than simply buying the idea that storms with strong updrafts cause tornadoes, which makes me think they should be a lot more common, and the population of the world a whole lot smaller, I started looking into other reasons for tornadoes.
Several tribes of American Indians seemed to think that tornadoes were the revenge of the Great Spirit, and told settlers that they would be safe if they lived between two rivers. But since then, this has been proven not to be the case. Maybe the white men made the Great Spirit more angry.
Other people believe that tornadoes are evidence of UFO landings. After the mass disinformation conspiracy in Siberia, where many, many people understood they saw a UFo, but the government somehow convinced everyone they saw a tornado, I am a bit more inclined to believe in the UFO/tornado connection.
It would also explain why there are more tornadoes in rural areas, why so many tornadoes come at once in certain areas. Why a large percentage of the population in those areas seem fearful and none too bright. Are tornadoes caused by UFo's? You decide.
