That's incredibly interesting - I'd never thought of them that way, but that's an awesome point.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 2:38:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I've believed this for a long time.

Actually the question I asked was are Angels just fundamentalist faeries but some busybody mod seemed to think they have a better mind for composing questions than I have.

I fart in your general direction.

I think it makes more sense this way, bored.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 2:45:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's the other way around,faeries are just pathetic angel rip offs made to look promiscuous trollopty so they seem "cooler" than the christian icon.

Crapola Trips, the Christian religion is not that old and there were angels in the old testement too.

Bored,you're obviousyly PMSing today so I dont' want to stir you up,but what proof do you have that faeries came before Angels?
The Christian religion IS that old,if you start from when civilization began
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 2:53:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
People have believed in faeries in one way or another for a very very long time. Much longer than 2003 years.

As I said before, Angels are NOT a Christian concept, they are Judaic.

So?
This question is still worded that angels are rip offs of faeries,that's like the Terminator is a rip off the The Matrix,it's a sh*tty example,but it's still the point,the original can't be a rip off
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:07:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Duh Duh Duh Duh.

The point being that Christianity, as a religion is fairly new and older pagan religions that deified the natural world through the manifestation of spirits predated Christianity and Judaism.

19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:08:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
So you belive faeries predate angels?
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:14:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I believe nothing.

I know that pagan religions that deified spirits predate monotheistic religions such as Judeaism and Christianity.

Faeries are an extention of the minor deities of old pagan religions.

Angels are an adaption of that concept just as EVERY aspect of Christianity is an adaption of an earlier religion.

Pish has a ponit,faeries are like she demons
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:15:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
faeries and angels are distinctly different in nature; just look at the description that was given with this question. angels are beneficent. faeries are mischevious. based on that alone, they are not the same.

the question paints a bad parallel by pitting (on the same plane of discussion) what many believe to be true with something that a vast majority of us know to be fictional. similarities exist, but then again, similarities exist between everything everywhere.

just because angels and 'faeries' both are depicted to be winged, does not mean that a debate beyond that point is really all that valid.

this reminds me of the debate when i first came to the site that asked if God is today's "zeus". similarities, yes. debateable application, no. different planes, similar concepts, but not the same.

"I believe nothing."

I had no idea you were a nihilist.

Damn,pish deleted and reposted
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:15:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
lol, whoops, rephrased
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:16:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
you guys work too fast here now
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:19:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
faeries are mischievous scamps, Angels could potentially dethrone God
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:19:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
how is that?
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:20:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
God can't be dethroned
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:22:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
So are you suggesting that a nun and a prostitute are not both women because they are different in nature?

The parrallel is not that they are winged.

The parallel is that they are both etheral spirits, one behaving in an arbitary and chaotic manner and the other being a true servant of God.

The idea of devils is much the same too isn't it?

The cast down Angels that would not "Serve their Lord and almighty Master"

19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/03 - 3:22:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
of course God can't be dethroned, but if He could it'd be Angels that could do it (hence the whole Satan bit)
