    Hang on a sec...I was under the impression that, in Christian mythology, humans were given free will, but angels were not.

    In Christian "mythology", angels are creatures subject to God. They, just like us, have free will.

    Mr. William Shakespeare said "What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god."

    Anyone knows that the human is a special kind of beast. We have understanding and curiosity for things way beyond the scope of our 74 year lifetime. We love logic, we love to make art, and all for no apparent reason. We have the ability to love or ignore, and somehow we know which is good and which is evil.

    "And God said, let us make man in our image", the story runs. He created, we create. He loves, we love. He is order and cleanliness and beauty, we try to be the same. WE ARE LITTLE GODS! That's what sets us apart from angels, and thats why God loves us and wants to adopt us as family.

    Or maybe we're just animals with extraordinary superpowers. But the 3000 year old "mythology" from a nomadic tribe that kept records farther back than any other peoples does have a ring of truth to it.

    Wow, didn't think I'd be posting in here, but randomly hlancing and seeing this... HELL YES! That's theone where you've got magic that you can use on special dance moves that damage enemies and you rescue the little girls by checking all the doors and at the end of each stage Bubbles sits on your shoulders and points to the direction of the exit, right? Glad to see I'm not the only one who's played a MJ game.

    :highfive!:

    Acording to the bible, god is all powerful and omnipotent (sp?) aswell as omnipresent.

    He can do ANYTHING you can imagine. For some reason he doesn't though. I suppose you could say the absence of evidence is no the evidence of absence.
