'Real Angels'
Despite centuries of theological speculation about angels — from their number to their duties to how many can dance on the head of a pin — no one knows if they exist outside of stories and legends. Many people believe they do: Polls suggest that nearly 70 percent of Americans think angels exist. In their book "Paranormal America," sociologists Christopher Bader, F. Carson Mencken, and Joseph Baker note that "Angels pervade popular culture in books, television shows, and movies....

Nothing whatsoever to do with the question.

I have no idea. Some evidence supports the idea, some doesn't. While both sides will argue there is no proof. Until I have an experience myself, I've become agnostic! :o

I do believe they are real. I did have an experience 8 years ago when I saw a brilliant, bluish white light in my bedroom which woke me up in the early hours of the morning (3.00 am). What was significant for me though, was that is was just a few hours before the sudden death of my twin. I don't know whether this was an Angel or my twin coming to say goodbye.

My only regret is that I went back to sleep after looking at this beautiful light for a few moments. I don't know why I wasn't startled, to this day I still ponder on this :innocent:

Angels can take many forms, usually appearing as human or a glowing light or aura. Often—especially in cases of averted tragedy or disaster—angels will not be seen at all, but instead recognized by their actions. If something good, unexpected, and seemingly inexplicable happens, it's often assumed to be the result of angelic intervention....

Though angels are said to dwell in heaven, their visits to the earthly realm are not always benevolent. The most famous angel is Satan, who rebelled against God and was cast out of heaven. Biblical angels wage warfare, lay siege to cities, and kill people. The archangel Michael, for example, is often depicted as the leader of God's Army, destroying armies with his terrible powers and flaming sword. These avenging angels seem to have disappeared in modern times; it would be strange indeed to hear the victim of an accident or disaster blame an angel for their misfortune.

Angels are real!!! (But they're much cooler now)

Angels/spiritguides.

They exist alright there is no doubt that they do. Wether actual seperate entities or deep Jungian Archetypical manifestations. Take your pick.



"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

I would haft to say no.
One of the main reasons is that people say angels saved them from this or that and that they are watching over them.
Then why would'nt they save a child being torture to death by some sadistic A$$troll or why let all those kids get killed by some crazed shooter. :gun:
I know, I know their names came up in the book of life and it was their time to go........ :nw: Praise the Lord :nw:

A friend's aunt of mine swears on her children that before almost dying on an opperating table she saw "the light" and a person floating in the background of "the light". She swears it was an angel but it's just really hard to believe unless it happens to you i guess.

I've been wondering if the view of Angels in Yahweh-based religions is that of a being greater than man.  This quote seems to support that.
