But as I got older and learned about biology, an Angel has a really poor design. For starters it's Simian. So did angels have ape like ancestors? With the ability to fly that would mean they have very brittle bones. In a fight it would snap like a twig. And look where the wings are located. The back shoulder blades. What a terrible location. Unless they were the size of insects or able to flap at an escalated rate like one. The would lack the force for lift. Now lets say they didn't need them to fly. Just served as an aesthetic. They floated threw the power of love or what ever. Then why have them?

Possibly for the same reason that peacocks have plumage, for mating purposes. Those Nephilim do love human women. Rolleyes

But what about women who want and do become pregnant?

This is Wiki, so treat with caution...

"Miscarriage is the most common complication of early pregnancy. Among women who know they are pregnant, the miscarriage rate is roughly 10% to 20% while rates among all conceptions is around 30% to 50%."

RE: He who shall not be named.
When my sister converted to Christianity she went wacky-nutso-crazy on us. She didn't want anyone around her to say "gosh". Why? Because "gosh" is a substitute for god and if you were to say "gosh darn it" you're basically saying "god damnit".

So basically I told her to fuck off.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Or as a friend once told me, born again Christians are worse the second time around.

That reminds me of my early years as a Christian child. I wasn't allowed any swear words at home. All of my school friends said "God!" all the time. I wanted to fit in--this was in elementary school--so I would say … "Gaaaah … (long pause) … d" and hope God wasn't paying attention. This of course didn't help me fit in, and I'm sure it made me seem even more different. Eventually I got around to saying all the forbidden words. Even now I get a little thrill sometimes from saying fuck it or goddammit.

Are you kidding? If something happens to your wings, that billowing robe can be a life-saver!
