There is an old saying about opinions being like armpits... everyone has them, and everyone thinks that everyone else's stink. Go in peace.

Valerie, whenever one posts something 'nice', such as you did, the availability of the internet brings out the True Loonys.
Pay them no mind.

I am glad you have had a wonderful experience, and please dont judge Americans by the few negative losers who post here. They are trolls, and nothing more.

I myself am a scientist, and do my best to be skeptical, whatever the claims.

However, I too have had brushes with other realities, and I am only sorry for those living in such close-mindedness that they can only belittle and ridicule that which they know nothing about. They will never know happiness.(OR angels!)

Blessed be to you!

i think that the angels are in cahoots with bigfoot and the loch less monster to fool the ignorant among us.....

but according to jim above, only people who beleive in the supernatural will know happiness. is that another way of saying "ignorance is bliss?"

dont be afraid to die, its part of life..making up stories about ghosts and angels doesnt change the fact that the circle of life exists....

ANGELS ARE HERE ON EARTH TO PROTECT US. THOSE THAT DON'T BELIEVE ARE ONLY KIDDING THEMSELFS. WHEN YOU ARE IN NEED AND PRAY FOR HELP YOUR ANGEL WILL LISTEN. YOUR ANGEL WILL PROTECT YOU AND GUIDE YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP PEOPLE. THE END IS NEAR. THOSE WHO DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD AND HIS ANGELS WILL NOT HAVE EVER LASTING LIFE. I KNOW I WILL.
When people are in need and desperation they will believe in anything that might offer a small glimpse of hope.

Televangelists have monopolized on this knowledge.

There's a reason missions target desperate people and locations, and it's not just to provide them with a bowl of rice.

I just looked at the picture and video of the "angel" and it just seems weird how similar to the shape of the florescent lights reflecting off the floor it is.

Maybe the angel was trying to camouflage itself?

I believe in angels. My father was killed when I was 6 years old. When we went to the cemetery to see his headstone, we saw an angel. She was dressed in white, at another grave and she was crying. She was there one minute and gone the next. Say what you want, 3 people saw her.

Eureka Gal,
I know that you are scared, but the end is not near. If you would stop beleiving in ghosts and start getting an education, you will be MUCH better off. I promise.
Start by taking an English class. You will discover that the word "themselfs" is actually spelled themselves. Also, the use of commas should not scare you. Commas are your friend.

Looked at the picture - looks to me like sunlight reflected off a window, hence the three columns.

There have been aparitions since the begining of time. In ancient times, these aparitions were thought of as gods, or avatars of the gods. Perhaps they are avitars of the divine. It is not a solely Christian concept; visions of guardians or angels or gods or whatever you want to call them are known in many cultures and religions; some even use fasting, meditation and drugs to bring about these visions.

Personally, I think that it's up to the individual to decide what it means to and for them.

You need to get a life! You are totally off the subject. I do believe that angels exist although I don't think I have ever seen one myself but I have seen spirits. My mother for example after she died and my father once after he died and others that I had no clue who they were. None talked to me but I deffently saw them, I was not dreaming I was wide awake!!!!!!!!!

One of my aunts for years swore up and down she saw ghosts. Literally had the whole family convinced it was true, and she was being haunted. Even had visitors to her house thinking that they saw weird stuff too.

And then she was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and put on medication. Although she still has some issues, she hasn't seen or heard any ghosts since, and everyone else that she had convinced realized that they really wanted to believe her, and their mind did the rest.

Now it's a big family joke.

Not saying it's not real, but if you really really want to believe something, your mind has a tendency to help out.

And I also looked at the pictures and video this story is about. It really takes a stretch to turn that reflection into an angel. Especially when you see the reflection on the floor. It really looks like the "angel" is a image coming from the reflection on the floor.

Kinda like the thing on the grilled cheese sandwich that was sold on ebay awhile back.

there was a ghost in my house when i was in high school my brother and i would be watching tv and the room would suddenly get cold the volume on tv would go down or it was hard to hear and a shadow would walk across infront of tv .very spooky.
my sister lived in this house later and her three little hellions (boys) ran this thing off-he or she never came back .never underestimate the power of an onery kid.
yes this is a true story- not any kind of an angel though
