What causes clouds like that ?

"Those are called "lenticular clouds" They're caused when the air flow is just right so when it flows over Mt. Rainier, the air gets pushed upward where it cools and condenses into clouds. Depending on how smooth the flow is, you can get some amazing clouds formations as we've seen so far today. Here is more information on what causes them from an earlier blog entry (http://www.komonews.com/weather/blog/25393894.html)."

:flag:Got the pics in an email and did research to make sure that they weren't bogus pics. They're so bizarre looking, that they almost don't look real.

IMO, looking at those pics, how could someone deny that there is a God ?
