    I think angels are among us.  There are two kinds of angels---those sent by God and those who fell from Heaven  (God's angels, and Lucifer's gang).
    That doesn't justify atheism!   So I dunno what you meant by that, unless you mean those atheists who think there are angels but no God.....or those who think people somehow turn into angels..

    No, I dont believe in angels any more then demons, or shills of god anymore than witches. I dont understand what you mean by atheists inventing angels. That makes no sense.

    belief in angels tends to support religious belief, why would atheists make that up?

    to Brenda, how do you know there are two types of angels and not 3 or 4 or 100? Why not one type, since there's apparently one type of god?

    In Islam we call them the Jinn... some of them are part of satan's followers. Angels do not live on earth...but they do come down to earth when commanded by God.

    not sure how angels would justify atheism ... because atheists would not believe in angels.

    What does that even mean--angels in invention to justify atheism?  I believe in angles because Scripture tells us about them.  Not sure about them being among us.

    Your first question... yes I do.
    Your second question... I do not understand the relevance.

    Unlike what religion may claim, I strongly believe that those beings we call angels have had at least one incarnation in the physical, and many that are in varying stages of wakefulness right now, on planet earth. I say that because I am in awe at how truly complex this omniverse is. The Creator has covered every contingency in creation, including ensuring that those who act as guides or advisors to humans would require the experiential reality of being in a human form, to fully understand the difficulties we face in a dualistic world.
