Quote# 86641

I had read somewhere that during the London blitz that angels may have taken over the controls of RAf fighters when the pilots were killed.

"I had read somewhere that during the London blitz that angels may have taken over the controls of RAf fighters when the pilots were killed."

I think I would have rather had them cutting down Nazi planes with their flaming swords than flying planes with dead pilots. It would have been more useful.

Oh good! We can abolish military budgets and rely on angels instead.

They obviously weren't very good at flying the planes then as each plane with a dead pilot crashed. Not one managed to land back on an airfield.

I think you confused the summaries of two episodes.

It was the Daleks that defended Britain (as part of a ploy).
It were the Angels that had the phone box…

It's from an idiot who posts on Raptard ready, so of course it's stupid.
Moving on. Nothing more to see here.

Acelow, I suggest you put down your book of fantasies and read some actual history.

And give credit where it's due.

And then the planes crashed. One would think that angels would be more competent pilots.

I also read that the Nazis were experimenting with inter-dimensional travel to unlock the power of the Ogdru Jahad.

Guess that means you just shouldn't believe everything you read.

No, it was the most recent Christmas episode.

This is so pathetic that it makes me sad, the childlike desire to believe in supernatural beings rather than flesh-and-blood mortals. Do fundies ever grow up?

I read somewhere that cats would take over the world by 2000. Reading something doesn't mean anything unless there's proof for it. And how come God's always on the winning side, eh? Awfully convinent of him.

The Blitz had nothing to do with RAF fighter pilots, those are two different theatres of war.

The Blitz was all about Nazi night bombing against which fighters were of no practical defence because night fighters couldn't operate in anything like the numbers needed to worry a flight of bombers

Where the RAF pilots came in was preventing day attacks against British military targets in the south of England over counties such as Kent, Essex and over the English Channel. Over 100 miles from London in most cases.

By the time of the Blitz the Battle of Britain had already been won. Hitler had been forced to call off day time raids on British airfields and factories because the Luftwaffe's losses were too great to sustain. The Blitz, though devastating, was of no military value.

Why wait for the pilots to be killed? Why not just swat the nazis out of the air ahead of time?

If the angels really wanted to be useful, they'd have taken over the controls before the pilots were killed. It's just like with Sodom and Gomorrah: instead of striking the townspeople blind from the git-go, the angels waited until after Lot offered to let the townspeople gang-rape his young, virgin daughters. After the townspeople refused to rape the poor, terrified girls, then the angels finally admitted that, hey, presto, they had the ability to deal with the problem themselves all along.

Ha! Those were never angels. They were flying pigs.
It came to me in a dream.

Now I've read it somewhere too. Funny how that works.

Still bullshit.

And yet no single seater aircraft with a dead pilot at the controls ever made a safe landing at an airfield.

I wonder why...

I got this bullshit poured into my brain when I was a kid along with hosts of other tall tales about how God sent angels to protect the True Believers from Evil.

Eventually I grew up, turned on my brain, and unleashed my skepticism on these stories. They didn't last long.

Hmmm! So that's how easy it is to believe in silly things. Silly things like the rapture, for instance.

I had read somewhere that during the London blitz, RAF pilots were cold blooded motherfuckers that defended their home contry, their contrymen and anything they standed for with only their reflexes, ability, all the flying steel engineering could provide them, and that some of them gave their lives to it.

Giving this achievment to your magical imaginary frind is soiling their memory.
