Russian Priest: Angels & Demons Exist, But We Mistake Them For Aliens
"A senior Russian Orthodox Church clergyman said angels and demons do exist, but are often mistaken for aliens by those who encounter them.
"They are real creatures, humans come into contact with them as they sometimes reveal themselves," Vsevolod Chaplin, who oversees the church`s public relations, told RIA Novosti.
Chaplin said the sun and universe rotate around the earth, but only in a logical sense, not a physical one."
I`m hardly surprised that a senior Russian Orthodox Church minister is spouting such nonsense; it seems that the more outlandish and controversial a minister`s comments the quicker he will ascend the hierarchy of most churches.
If Chaplin declares that angels and demons are sometimes mistaken for Barney the Dinosaur and Honey Boo Boo Child he will probably be promoted to the head of his denomination.
Don`t get me wrong I`ve seen plenty of demons and angels, but there was nothing otherworldly about them. I`ve seen plenty of geeks dressed up as extraterrestrials for Halloween and Star Trek conventions, and I`ve seen quite a few Vitoria`s Secret angels.
"The sun and universe rotate around the earth, but only in a logical sense, not a physical one ", talk about doublespeak pseudoscience religious malarkey!
Homeboy needs to get his head out of the clouds, and get a whiff of reality.
