Strepsiades: Who makes the thunder that makes me shake in terror?

Socrates: It is just the Clouds rocking in the sky.

Strepsiades: Is nothing sacred! How do they do that?

Socrates: Simple. When they become completely saturated with moisture, they are forced by Necessity to begin to oscillate to and fro.
Every now and again they ram each other and of course, being packed with precipitation, CRASH! A cloudburst!

Strepsiades: But surely someone must force them to move in the first place. That must be Zeus.

Socrates: Not at all, it is the whirling of the Celestial.

B. Who knows whether at some point in the future people will again attribute phenomena to similar entities?
