Angels exist but do not have wings and are more like shards of light, at least according to a top Catholic Church "angelologist" who says the heavenly beings are now back in vogue thanks to New Age religions.

I believe in wings, but not angels.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Biblically, Angels (as in, messengers of God) were indeed wingless and "terrible" to behold (looking on the face of one (during the whole Lot/Sodom incident) struck a man dead on the spot for example).
The winged chappies actually had four wings and three faces IIRC.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Yes I also think angels could seem rather scary because such kind of will of service which is beyond any comprehendable love to human when turns into a material form would probably be something unrecognizable/unknown to a human eye thus would scare them. Roots of angels and man are not same in terms of their structucturing of will and service so their beauty cant be alike and their individual beauties can be appreciated only by god which has access to both those roots.

As a kid some Catholic school kids I knew were talking on what they were taught, and that Angels had feathers for eyebrows.I questioned them further, and they withdrew as if it was privileged information.

Here is the Islamic view on the Angel of Death.

Only thing one has to do is Google image search "Nike mythology", or "Victoria mythology" to find out what angels look like to Roman Catholics.

Old Testament says that they can pass as ordinary men, but more handsome, and they might shimmer.I am going by memory on the OT part.

Angels have no wings because there are no angels.

  • It's good to be mildly skeptical to remain sane. But too much of it will make you a douche.

Sometimes I wonder why anyone wouldn't think of angels looking like walking SEAFOOD MEDLEY.

They came with a Bible and their religion. stole our land, crushed our spirit, and now they tell us we should be thankful to the Lord for being saved.

-Chief Pontiac (1718-1769)
