I do agree with you on this, Ive seen too many BAD things happen to children and innocent people...if 'guardian angels' are in place, many are not doing a very good job.
Not replying to this post specifically as there as a number of others expressing the same sentiment.

Basically, if we blame others (God/angels/demons/etc) then we are not taking responsibility for our own destiny. These atrocities happen because we as a society allow them. As an example, we allow pedos to do their thing. Whether it be Epstein and his friends, the Catholic church and their priests, or politicians and people in broadcasting(BBC) they are ALL contributing to this dangerous and unwanted behaviour which we as a society should MAKE SURE is stopped. We cannot claim others are not doing their job when we ourselves are not doing our job to stop this stuff going on in our world.

So, think about that, you people who are saying angels/God/guides are not performing well. They have a set of guidelines they must stick to in order for us to learn what we need to learn. It is like teachers doing our math for us - we will not learn how to do it for ourselves.

Please tell me how you would know this and since you do what exactly are these guidelines.

If they exist, mine has been on a coffee break for the last almost-forty years, I wish he'd get off his duff and start looking out for me. Who should I complain to on this?

It's almost as if he didn't exist, isn't it?

I don't believe in any of this. I haven't seen evidence that there's anything such as spirits, souls, angels, or gods. The closest I've gotten was hearing some thunder yesterday. I almost started believing in the god Thor.

Oh they exist, although Im not sure we give them accurate names, 'spirits, ghosts, etc', I do not think they are spirits or souls from once living people either.


Whatever they are, I have seen and experienced their handiwork firsthand.

Sam, You are free to choose whether you believe in these things or not. I happen to believe that God/angels/guides are not allowed to interfere with our lives but are only there to provide advice. If you choose to blame others for something you should be taking responsibility for, then again, thats your choice and will probably be a theme which runs through your life in all areas. One day, we all have to decide to take our life into our own hands and direct it how we want it to go. It does no good to anyone blaming others, as it does not provide a solution to any problem.

For me (and only my beliefs) Near Death Experiences, Out of Body travel reports, psychic tales, ghosts, occult stories, religious stories, all lead me to believe there is something going on here which we cannot explain at the moment, although we might be able to in a few years time. It leads me to believe in a God, Guides, aliens, ghosts, cryptids, and all manner of strange beasties along with other dimensions and realities too. No-one says any of you have to believe anything, so it is entirely up to you individually what makes you feel safe or comfortable in your life.

After all that, there are millions of religious people out there who all believe different things, different God, different Masters, different angels, different saints, etc and most of them cannot prove diddly.

Thank you for your response. I kinda agree with the bold part, is should read NONE of them can prove diddly.

I gave you 10 reps in my mind.
Thank you for taking the time to write it.
'Blame' is not even in my vocabulary!
I am responsible for every single thing in my life ---even walking out and seeing someone dented my car.
Yes, even that.

Just want to point out that nobody can prove God/angels/demons/etc * don't * exist, either.




(People often forget that here on c-d.....lol)
