Just like we see images of god in the sky, can we also see the devil?

    Seriously, sometimes when you look at the sky,its so beautiful.The clouds formed make the appearance of beautiful animals, angels and gods.But sometimes, even when I'm in a good mood, especially at night, I find the moon frightening as if devil has taken over it.Similarly, sometimes, the shape of the clouds are so scary that I stop looking at the sky.I feel so scared as if something bad is there.Does this happen?I want serious answers please.

      As all these things you see are solely in your imagination - there is nothing to be scared of.

      We are pattern-seekers and will always find them. This is how we evolved - nothing scary and nothing real to worry about.

      We experience a phenomenon called pareidolia, finding patterns where there should be none. It's built into us by evolution. It's why we see the Man in the Moon, see recognizable shapes in clouds, or hear disembodied voices in recordings of background noise (EVP's). In the bathroom of a place I used to work, the pattern in the tile formed a face that looked pretty devilish. But that was pareidolia at work; nothing supernatural about it. I saw it every time I used the bathroom.

    You will see whatever you unconscious mind is dwelling on.

    A man once told me that he had seen Elvis Presley in the sky...not a cloud formation...Elvis. I had to believe that he saw something...because that's actually the end of the story, not the beginning.

      Elvis isn't dead, he just went home.

        He was playin' "Amazing Grace" and singing. I know who made him see it. Figure out how it's done, then get back to me! K?

    I have a six sense and I'm very sensitive to the world beyond. I've seen, heard and felt some pretty strange things. However the one thing that I haven't seen is the Devil but I have felt certain people as being evil and being led by the Devil himself. I think he's in hiding and he lurks within the hearts of evil people. When a criminal screams he killed because he was ordered or told to do so - I believe he was and by the Devil himself. Perhaps the Devil feels that if he reveals himself too much and people in their faith come together for the good they may destroy him once and for all. So he's afraid to show his true face.

    Thank you everyone for the answers.I always wondered about it.I think I'm clear now.So even if the sky looks devilish sometimes,I don't have to worry about it.

    Twosheds: Look up "Fractals". Those patterns exist throughout nature, from the micro, to the macro-universe.

    I like that old adage, "Speak of the Devil and he is presently at your side."

    I think humans have a capacity for evil, and looking for or talking about the devil is a great way to conjure it up.
