    Well the sailing stones are caused by periodic freezing and melting and the fish rain is caused by waterspouts. extraordinary yes but unexplained or caused by god no.

    #2 "Rains" or more accurately "falls" of fish, crabs, frogs, perriwinkles and other aquatic critters have been reported all over the world for 200+ years.
    There is NO current scientific explaination that is not WEIRDER than the phenominon itself.
    "Selective whirlwinds" LMAO!!!

    "have been reported all over the world for 200+ years. "

    Much longer than that! The `Plague of Frogs` was caused by the very same phenomenon.

    Fish rain is from water spouts (tornadoes on water) picking up fish, then the fish getting blown over land, where they eventually fall, and die...fish pie anyone?

    I`m unclear why one would wear makeup that is derived from the nuts of tree climbing goats.

    The sailing stones have been explained. Every once in a great while it will rain slightly and the surface will turn to a slippery clay like texture. the stones just slide around in the wind or due to gravity or whatever. read it on cracked.com so you know its true.

    Moving rocks of Death Valley, explained. There`s unfortunately no video of it happening, but the explanation is the only one so far and it seems compelling.

    Red Tide is the worst. It causes your throat to burn and kills off the fish which all wash up on shore so now you have this irritation coupled with the stench of dead fish.

    I`ve seen the goats first-hand, in Morocco. Not gonna lie, it`s pretty funny. This shot was taken by my own fair hand:

    Cute photo. But you know, any farmer with goats will tell you they love to climb on rocks, tractors, roofs, the chicken coop - whatever they can find. I don`t regard it as too much of a miracle of nature that they`re willing to climb to a food source. It just suggests they share certain genes with their mountain goat relatives.

    Well the last one with the lighting. If there is a swamp in that area; dying tree and decaying vegetation releases methane and at swamps it can get piled up.

    Areas that have these methane swamps are also known for constant thunder storms
