    @ RubaDub:

    "Can't a few angels be put on overtime and protect the brothers from the potential "authorities" that wish to harm or eliminate them?"

    Overtime! LOL! Maybe Jehovah's heavenly organization is cutting back too!

    Based on info from other sources, not necessarily supported by me, god actually runs the whole universe, not just this small planet which means a lot could be going on outside this planet but not recorded for humans. Just saying, a different perspective might explain what the majority of angels are doing outside of the earth.

    The whole WTS doctrine on "angels" is dumb, if you care to expend more than 5 minutes of thought on it.

    So the WTS teaches that there are "hundreds of millions" of angels, right?

    And they also say that angels are "messengers" for God.

    And they also say that the only sentient physical beings in the entire, zillion-light-year big universe, are right here on our little ol' earth.

    So there are hundreds of millions of messengers...what messages do they carry? From whom? To whom? Everything of "universal importance", according to the WTS, is centered on this insignificant little rock. Why do you need an army of hundreds of millions of messengers to carry messages around one planet?

    Why does God even need messengers? "Imperfect man" can communicate across millions, hundreds of millions, of miles, directing radio commands to satellites, no angelic messengers needed.

    In all of Watchtower publications, I have seen that these angels have wings. Wondering why ?

    Only materialistic creatures need wings to flap and fly.

    The Bible describes them as having wings.

    Again, committing the sin of thinking about this for more than 11 seconds, OK, maybe, MAYBE, you could make an argument that "wings" would be needed if the angels are carting around the earth (ignoring the physics, of course - those wings, as depicted, wouldn't lift them a centimeter).

    But in all the WT depictions of angels in heaven, they all have wings too. This implies air in heaven. Do angels breath oxygen? Expel carbon dioxide? Are there angel plants to breathe in CO2 and exhale O2?

    And in the WT illustrations, why do the wings always have feathers? There are no bible verses which describe the angels' wings. Lots of creatures have featherless wings.

    OK, going to stop. It's just stupid to think about angels.

    (smle) - we shouldn't ask silly questions that embarrass christians (of any brand).

    Ahh.. Ok. I remember now. Thanks

    Anyway, I am more interested in chicken wings, as they are realistic
