Quote# 66852

God is very creative. Just look at the cherubim: 4 faces, 4 wings, cow legs and flying at 90 degree angles? WEIRD!!

And then think about the cherubim: 6 wings! What must their flight pattern look like?

No, that happened when Salvador Dali collided with Picasso.

It's exactly the same as the Invisible Pink Unicorn's!

Just how big wingspan do these angels have, anyway? Most angels, as depicted in artwork, would not be able to fly. You'd need something ridiculous, like 10-meter wing span to get a human off the ground.

"God is very creative. Just look at the cherubim: 4 faces, 4 wings, cow legs and flying at 90 degree angles? WEIRD!!"

Weird, indeed. And likely "stoned" also applies to the one who thought it up.

"And then think about the cherubim: 6 wings! What must their flight pattern look like?"

Anything you can imagine. And there's a very good reason for that. See if you can work out what it is.

What the fuck are you talking about?

You do know that they don't actually exist, ...don't you?

God is very creative. He created magic mushrooms for His prophets to eat.

Yes, they look suspiciously like the demi-gods of the Babylonians. Its almost as if the writers of the bible stole the image from that pagan society. Hmm, I wonder if the bible contains any other ideas borrowed from pagan societies.

I like how the "cherubim" grew an extra pair of wings from one paragraph to the next.

6 wings, 4 wings, damn! Those cherubim are like the insects.

Bah, I am not impressed, other MYTHOLOGIES have cooler creatures.
Oh wait, you think they are real?!? *backs away carefully*

Call for you on line 1. Some bloke named Nebuchadnezzar says you stole those multi-winged beings from him and he wants them back.

Yeah apparently people were trippin on drugs even back in the Bronze Age.

LOL. If this wasn't on RR I'd swear this was sarcasm

I'd gladly look at the cherubim, BUT THEY DON'T FUCKING EXIST!

Not if the wings beat 1000 times per minute, like a humming bird.

Of course, normal mammalian muscles would not be able to pull off such a feat. There's only so much force that a kilogram of muscle tissue can generate. But these are Angels we're talking about here. Their musculature comes from the planet Krypton, or something.

Or -- maybe they're like Hawkman. They have an anti-gravity belt for lift and the wings are just used as control surfaces.

Personally, I'm leaning toward the Planet Krypton hypothesis. Maybe the "iron" chariots in Judges 1:19 were actually made of Kryptonite, which would explain Yahweh's inability to defeat them.

I do like the way that God is creative enough to make these freaky creatures, but not creative enough to bring about life through a process as clever as evolution.

No word was spoken amidst the distant sound that grew nearer and nearer, but as I followed the memory-face's mad stare along that cursed shaft of light to its source, the source whence also the whining came, I, too, saw for an instant what it saw, and fell with ringing ears in that fit of shrieking epilepsy which brought the lodgers and the police. Never could I tell, try as I might, what it actually was that I saw; nor could the still face tell, for although it must have seen more than I did, it will never speak again.

I suspect that this is a poe having fun. The terms "flight pattern" and "90 degree angles" combined with perfect spelling and punctuation give it away.

Um, those things don't exist.....
