|The imaginary christian worlds of Heaven and
Hell seem to be infested with creatures called angels.
If evil, they might be labelled deamons. If necessary, they come armed
with flaming swords (AK-47s and Uzis were not invented yet).
There seems to be different types of angels. There are archangels (higher ranking angels), guardian angels, guiding angels, messenger angels and warrior angels. There are the fallen angels such as Satan and his clan.
Most made up images of angels portray them as larger than men and they have wings. Their body structure must be radically different then humans in order to support what must be giant wings to be able to fly in Earth's atmosphere. Of course, we know the wings become fairly useless at altitudes of 20,000 or more feet since the air density falls dramatically.
My miscellaneous questions on angels are:
Apparently, angels (and cherubs and deamons) are capable of flittering in and out of heaven and hell to visit our fair planet. This may involve some superluminal inter-dimensional travel (which might give you a bad case of the runs).
Why does an all powerful God need an army of minions with wings and flaming swords?
Tell me again, why angels (flying bird people) need swords (even flaming swords)?
It seems to me that an all powerful God who can create a vast universe with magical incantations shouldn't need millions or billions of helpers on one tiny planet in the corner of one galaxy of in a sea of billions of galaxies.
