    what do you think about these highly religious guardians? have you ever experienced a situation where you swore god or something else gave you a heads up that served helpful in the end? or maybe youve suddenly looked down once for no reason, only to find you wouldve stepped on a sleeping snake. talk about it here

    I don't think that individual angels are attached to specific people to be guardians. I think its more a matter of whoever is available comes to help. I think that it has to be a very special case though for an angel to intervene on your behalf. Then again I don't know for sure.

    There have been some very interesting accounts in the Bible of what angels do when they are on earth. The most interesting of these to me is found in the old testament. (I haven't read it myself so I stand corrected) It tells of when the archangel (Michael I think) contested with the devil over the body of Moses.

    Besides this though, my understanding from the Bible as to what angels are actually doing besides praising God, is waging war with satan's forces. I would think that they are quite busy.

    Guardian Angels are merely semantics. You call them angels, I call it dumb luck.

    I don't know how an angle could actually protect you, certainly not obtuse or acute angles.

    maybe one day scientists will find that elusive 361st degree, then after that who's to say what angles will do for people. :)

    It's kinda like paranoia,you get lucky and you start thinking that you matter in the eyes of celestial beings.

    I think they are guardian angels out there. I agree with blackluster that guardians are not specifically assigned to you. I think your guardian might be a relative that has passed away.

    You should be arrested for being a necromancer.

    *stole thunder from Sauf* :awesome

    But sure why not? I mean angles are known to exist. Oh, you were talking about angels.

    Yes to that too. :quite

    Guarding you from what? Natural events? Why? How?

    When attempting to explain the causes behind things it actually helps when the explanations actually explains them.

    You really should believe what you don't see. I don't see air, but I know air exists.

    Similarly we can deduce certain things exist from some starting axioms that you might never see. And that applies to a shitload of mathematical QM things (though QM relies on the inductive portion in the non-pure math parts). :quite

    So if I push you off a cliff you believe that "something" is going to save you?

    Its easy to appeal to the idea that there is "something" behind a streak of luck or coincidence when faced with an "unknown" of how it happened or the events that caused it. Yet, when the outcomes are highly predictable such as you losing a long battle with gravity there isn't a wide spread belief that angels will catch you.

    I put my trust in explanations that make sense, work, and allow us to understand the world a little better not because it is simply a comforting thought.

    I don't think God assigns some Angel to follow you around or something, but I think sometimes one might in passing do something to help out.

    someone was watching too much "Touched by an Angel" :iria





























    um seriously its always possible... but I think it would be more of a spiritual dilemma and not a physical dilemma that you would be saved from.

    In my mind, its more like when you see a child doing something dumb like standing on a rail and go to grab them.

    The Angel is just hanging out doing his shit and then he's like "Oh damn, look at this dumb ass, I guess I could save him..."
