Firstly what is an angel ?

When we think angels and demons we automatically think biblical powers etc.

What if angels are merely the truly altruistic among us, the people who go so far out of there way to help others and do not expect a thank you or acknowledgement return. They show extraordinary strength, courage and kindness which emanates from every pore of their being. They may be rich or poor but one thing is certain they are selfless.

What I mean is they do not care about their own well being provided they can spread light and happiness onto others.

How many people do you know that are truly this selfless,

you probably do not know many or even any as these people are natural loners keeping very little company, not because they don't want to but because they naturally dont crave attention from others.

Its a difficult concept to grasp, but I possibly think it could be.

The reverse is true also, which is a scary thought.

So angels are socially awkward humans.

Interesting theory.

I don't think angels are just people that are very good. I believe angels and demons are entirely different beings. Not all are the beautiful winged creatures people imagine either. The book of Ezekiel explains angels or "cherubim" as having:

"the form of men, but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings." "Their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like burnished bronze. Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands...each had the face of a man in front; the four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle at the back...And their wings were spread out above; each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies....In the midst of the living creatures there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches moving to and fro among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. (Ezek. 1:4-14)

Those don't sound like your typical Christmas play angels to me. I think angels can take on whatever form they desire. Including a human form. As for demons. Well, I believe they are angels that rebelled against God and because of this they have suffered and became deformed and evil. A flower without the sun, the source of it's growth, will wither. So the form of demons are that of twisted and defiled angels.


That's what I believe, but you're free to believe whatever you want. I don't want to start any arguments.

Lol those are Victoria's Secret Angels.

The girl second from the left is Tyra Banks, and the girl on the right is Adriana Lima I think.

I don't believe in Angels or Demons, either biblical or the kind you described.

If anyone was entirely selfless, they would probably be miserable, if not dead.
But maybe we should define selflessness, selfishness, self-interest, and self-preservation, because perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you mean by selfless.

Then being an angel must be a boring existence.

Whoa. Did you just get a really bad picture of them? O__O
I could have sworn they were hotter than that O_o

@ OP
If that's the case then I'm pretty sure there's more demons than angels.
I've only seen 2 people in my entire life being extremely kind without thinking of themselves, and that was on the subway. Both of them were old women. Everyone else seemed like they were miserable and were ignoring that old hobo. No one but them got up to help that poor man.

^Rofl at Kippu's comment.

I believe that both exist somehow, in everyone's mind. To me they are more of virtual than solid. Cannot deny the fact that I actually believed that they will appear someday in front of me when I was a kid.
