Why would they need them? Are they part bird or something? Also demons must need to butt heads for their mates that's why they have horns. I guess that's were "horny" comes from. ;)

Perhaps they don't have wings, but I believe there are angels.

I learned that long ago by reading near death experiences.   Some children that have had NDEs were suprised that the angels they saw didn't have wings.

Those I have encountered as fully manifested beings (other than  say just voices or voices and invisible forces)  were either 'beings of light", or appeared as ordinary people but with extraordinary abilities.  I've never encountered an angel with wings. Because angels can move instantaneously I suppose early people saw them as flighted beings. Actually they  move more like a matter transmission or transmit mode. ie They appear and disappear instantaneously and can cover huge distances basically instantaneously.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Sheesh one of the basic figures in Western lore and you don't even know what they look like.

That might be because it is not actually so basic. There are many forms of angelic beings and also ranks or categories of them Once upon a time any Christian would have learned these as a child, but in the modern world it is seen as irrelevant. Revelation gives a good description of christ in his angelic form, and other angels are also described as having human form, but cherubin were different. They had a different purpose (as guards)  They guarded the entrance to the garden of eden and the ark of the covenant, from memory.

This gives a reasonable run down of them.

This is one description of the nature of guardian angels; the form of angels most commonly associated with humans

Visible

Sometimes, guardian angels actually appear to the people they’re protecting. They may show up either in their heavenly form as beings that are glorious to see, or in human form, looking just like people.
Heavenly Form

The sight of angels appearing in their heavenly form is an awesome experience. Angels who show up in heavenly form radiate powerful, loving energy and emanate light, writes Denny Sargent in Your Guardian Angel and You: "When angels appear, they are always accompanied by amazing waves of pure love and power. They almost always appear as beings of light. Sometimes they come as balls of light, sometimes as glowing bands of light… White is the color most often attributed to them, although many different colors are also mentioned in various historical accounts."
When angels appear in heavenly form, they may also have magnificent wings that symbolize God's power and loving care for people. They may also have other exotic features that distinguish them from human beings.

LIES!
There's no such thing as too much Doctor Who.

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.

Angelic "wings" are simply a human metaphor for an ability of inter-dimensional travel. They have no actual "wings"

The "flaming sword" is much more serious, and held only by a select few, higher angels. It is to be greatly feared by any and all spirits, as it can destroy without any ability to defend oneself. No spirit is capable of surviving a flaming sword.

Wether you believe in Angels, or not, deities depicted with wings represent what ancient man thought was the spiritual world.

Spiritus
1. Latin term for breath, often used figuratively to mean spirit.

The realm of air, breath, and wind was seen as the spirit world in which birds were seen as magic.

Look at the sacred symbolism in these pics.

I)At the gobekli tepe a Vulture holds up a Human heart that pumps the sacred life blood to the spirit world.

II)A man prepares the sacred semen of life.

III)In Sumeria a winged deity presents a sacred seed, and water of life.

IV)A tree of life receives blessings from winged deities.

V)The Goddes Inanna travels the spirit world over, and under (Lions/Owls.)

VI)Inanna, and the God Enki holding a bird while the life giving waters of the Tigris, and Euphrates flow with fish through him.

VII)In Egypt Isis hovers over her husband in divine conception.

VIII)A winged deity gives tribute to a sun disc deity cradled by the horns of the fertile, and strong life giving bull.

IX)A fish deity of the plentifull life giving chaotic ocean waters from Babylon.

It's obvious what the ancients believed with their symbolism.
