    I have to ask have you seen one? Did it talk to you, for real not through the bible, or was it just in your head, or was it that you heard an angel for real with your ears?
    I guess my real question is, how to you believe in angels and why?

    Distance from God? Is this when you believe you are close to God and when you don't believe you are distant from God? I have never thought belief was a measurement and I can not see my way clear to that construct, it simply does not compute. Try putting the variable in a mathematic equation.

    So, who needs angels?
    I have been wanting one of those but other than playing music what is it good for? I heard you can get all your electronics to be controlled by Alexa but that probably would involve programing every device in my home and that would drive me nuts.

    I haven't the foggiest if heaven or hell exist for people let alone pets. Apparently the Pope set the Catholic faith on its head when he promised a man his pet would be with him in heaven. I would think the Pope has the inside track on that information; you know being the keeper of ancient documents and artifacts and the secrets only the pope can know. (PS I don't even know if that's true but I was told the pope has in his possession 3 secrets told to 3 children before WWI that claimed they saw the Virgin Mary appear to them. The secrets were written down and sealed in an envelope and turned over the church authorities for the Pope's eyes only and those of the Pope's after him only. Apparently one predicted the date of the start of WWI, the other the date of WWII and which apparently were proven true and they had not occurred yet when originally given over to the church. The last the date is that of WWIII which apparently is the date of the end of the world). I don't believe it for a second but it's a tale told to me as a child. I suppose it was just a story to scare the living crap out of me or to make sure I'd adhere to the Popes' teachings. Probably both.

    Clearly, dogs go to Heaven.
    Heaven is a happy place, and not a lonely place.
    A place with no dogs is a lonely place.
    Therefore, dogs go to heaven.

    Ms. Eve,

    Try to stop thinking so two dimensional.

    We are immediately aware of the three dimensions that surround us on a daily basis – those that define the length, width, and depth of all objects in our universes (the x, y, and z axes, respectively).

    Beyond these three visible dimensions, scientists believe that there may be many more. In fact, the theoretical framework of Superstring Theory posits that the universe exists in ten different dimensions. These different aspects are what govern the universe, the fundamental forces of nature, and all the elementary particles contained within.

    I bet you only think in 3 dimensions don't you? I prefer 10.

    Ms. Eve,

    And yet, while you prefer 10, your are only two dimensional in your thinking.

    You mean like the people that put men on the moon? You mean like the people that came up the medicines that save lives and treat diseases? Yeah, I prefer 10 dimensional thinking and can follow it. Your type of thinking not soo much.
