the angels in the river
i dont know why but for some reason this conversation popped in my head from church. the preachers wife and i were goofing around during service.. making comments on these angels. we would talk about how we would go swimming and see who got taken under first.

so who knows anything about the angels in the river. is it the Euphrates? i tried googling it but all that came up was end time prophecy and i wasnt interested in that mess.

Sounds like local folklore. All you have to do now is spread it like a virus.

It's a bible thing I just don't know much about them.

It's in Revelation and it's the Euphrates.

That being said, any Christian that takes Revelation literally is a doofus and needs to take a history, language and literature class to remedy their own ignorance.

The entire thing is written in a literary style called "apocalyptic language" and is the furthest thing from being literal.

i.e. If it contains anything of value then it's encoded so cryptically as to be worthless then? Tongue

It's more like a puzzle. Some people do those for fun. It's just, this particular one sometimes involves people killing each other over the pieces.

I try to work on my puzzles at a different table. In a different house.

You have some faith that the puzzle actually is a picture in the end though. Or that all the pieces fit together somehow. A religious puzzle is like that except the guys saw all the pieces off to make them fit any old how, then paint their own picture on top.

No, not worthless, it gives you an idea of the type of hallucinations you can have when you're high on shrooms.

Sure you're not confusing it with the river of Styx from Greek & Roman mythology?
