What some are calling an "angel" caught on camera

Of course I do not think this is the angel of the Bible, but it sure got Bible-thumpers praising Jesus. This, if not some freak natural wonder, had to be some alien, or inter-dimensional being perhaps?

A 14-year-old girl with a history of serious health issues lay dying of pneumonia in a hospital room. But as her mother waited for the girl to take her last breath, an image of bright light appeared on a security monitor. Within an hour, the dying girl began a recovery that doctors are at a loss to explain.
But Colleen Banton, the girl's mother, has an explanation. “This was an image of an angel,” she told NBC News in a story reported Tuesday on TODAY. She credited the apparition with saving the life of her daughter Chelsea.
No hope
The incident happened in Charlotte, N.C., in September. Chelsea had been born five weeks prematurely with developmental disabilities and had battled serious health problems all her life. She is particularly susceptible to the types of pneumonia infections that had taken her to death’s door.
Told that there was no hope for Chelsea, Colleen Banton had just instructed doctors to take her daughter off life support and allow nature to take its course when the apparition was seen.

It would be another two months before Chelsea finally left the hospital to return home, where she is about to celebrate her 15th birthday as well as Christmas. Her mother is convinced that Chelsea was saved by divine intervention.
“It’s a blessing,” she told NBC News. “It’s a miracle.”
Banton took a picture of the television monitor on which the image appeared. Some who look at it would describe it as a flare of reflected light. Others — including nurses who were on duty as well as Banton — say the three vertical shafts of light are indisputably an angel.
‘They walk amongst us’
Banton is hardly alone in her belief in angels.
“I think angels really do exist,” the Rev. Suzan Johnson Cook told TODAY’s Ann Curry after watching the report on the Bantons’ experience. “They protect us. They walk amongst us.”
Cook was joined by Rabbi Irwin Kula, who looked at angels as more of a metaphor for the unexplained wonders that life brings.

“Albert Einstein said there are two ways to look at the world: as if everything is a miracle or nothing is a miracle,” he said.
Angels do not play a large role in the Jewish faith, but they have a prominent place in Christianity, which teaches that an angel told Mary that she was to be the mother of Jesus.
Cook said she believes that angels are messengers from God. “They bring the message of hope,” she told Curry.
According to some polls, 75 percent of all Americans believe in angels. That level of belief varies with geography and political affiliation, with more Republicans than Democrats and more Southerners than Northeasterners believing in the existence of the heavenly messengers.
The high level of belief is unique in the developed world. In Canada, Great Britain and Australia, the same polls say, belief in angels does not exceed 40 percent.
Being open to wonder
Kula said whether you believe in angels or not, there is a deeper message in Banton’s story.

“The real question is: Can we be open to wonder?” the rabbi told Curry. “Even at the very last moment, the very darkest moment, can we actually be open to the new possibilities that are always there?”
Angels, Kula said, “can be anything.” In that sense, he said, one could say that someone who just shows up when you most need a hand can be seen as a very real angel.
“You’re having a bad day, and a child comes up to you and smiles and right away you feel better. Is that an angel or is that a child smiling?” Kula said.
Cook had to wipe away a tear of joy after watching Banton’s story. It is particularly appropriate, she said, coming at the Christmas season during a year in which many people are experiencing economic hardship.
“People are looking for a miracle right now,” Cook said.
Some, like Colleen Banton, feel they’ve found one.

The sun is an angel, or what ever meaning you give to the term angel. All you have to do is to find an angel, is look up, its big shiny star in the sky, we call our sun.

The sun plays the most important role in all our lifes.

Why do you think all humans groups worshipped the sun. The earth and the sun communicate with each other. Science does never want to accept it.

All diseases that are infections, and most are, can be cured by energy, you do not need any supplements, or drugs. Its just that most of you do not know what empathy is.

All you people suffering from some sort of infectious disease have it within you to recover, but you do not know how.

Always remember that the sun is the most important thing is all our lifes. Clean water and oxygen comes after.

The main reason for increase in cancers is that we do not have clean water anymore, water is very important to life, and we are drinking dirty water. This is the main reason for increase in cancers in humans.

It's more logical to think of the sun as "God" since the earth came from the sun. After all, the most important factor in being "God" is that "God" created the earth. The sun fits that description, no? If angels can be thought of as light, well, the sun creates that too. ;)

 
We celebrate christmas day because over 3 days at that time of year, the sun sends out some sort of energy, we call it spiritual energy.

Thats why you celebrate christmas day.

The sun sends out spiritual energy, and all human groups at the top have always worshipped this. Thats why you celebrate christmas day.

You should look at the sun as an angel like i do, and all human civilisations have before us. Thats why they really worshipped the sun, as they believed that the sun sends out an energy we do not see.

Also remember do not view things as human form, as humans are just beings of energy. Energy is all there is and all sorts of it, so we may not really look like we do. Also remember ants have no idea we exist, and why is that? Its because maybe we are not really what we think we are, lol

I still believe Christianity is the worship of the sun.

We have no idea what god is, and our human brain has no way of knowing what is outside of our reality. But we use things like the sun as a guide. Like how the bible says, about you only know god through his sun jesus.<< freudian slip

Humans will never know what created the universe, as we will always be inside it(or inside what ever reality is), but we use things like the sun, to try and understand god through it, and the wonders of the universe.

Do you agree that "God" created Earth?

I am not sure what you mean by the word god, or what anyone really means. Its a term that no one really knows what it means, and all over the world there is different ways to explain it, and no one agrees.

But i do think we where created. I do think there was an ultimate creator, but i think when we are born we are given so much energy and we do with it what we want. When that enegy goes we die, and we cannot stop any disease. I think that god or what ever that means, created the universe, and sends out energy into it, like how our sun does, and the universe creates, and we create with it. I think god stays out of the universe, other than sending energy into it all the time via suns and such things. The universe uses that energy, and we are part of that process, and we all use that energy.

So i believe that god exists in my reference to what i think it is, and is seperate from our universe, but the process is that energy is sent into the universe to keep it going. How the universe and us use that is upto us.

Always remember that ants do not know we exist. So what we actually look like or how we really exist may be nothing more than whats in our mind. Our mind is outside of our body, and we access it through our brain. What that total mind is and why ants do not understand we exist, is something science will never explain, as like us they are part of reality and cannot view the reality from outside.

If you get me.

Too much information. A simple yes or no will do. Do you agree that "God" created Earth?

I am trying to tell you that my view, is that no one knows any term that explains what god is, or who created the universe. So someone saying god created the earth for someone means something different to others.

I believe something created humans, but if that something also is responsible for creating earth is another matter. I think mankind has been done over and over on our planet.

If you can't answer a simple yes or no question then I'm done conversing with you. Have a good day!
 
I can see a different angel to the one they say is the angel.
I can also see a bird, and an alembic still.
The whole thing looks uncannily like a big sun.

Their angel looks to me like the devil playing a guitar.

Wow, that's all it takes for religious people to freak out? Oh right, it happened in South Carolina.

Mine would not be a yes or no answer because I'm agnostic and wouldn't deal in absolutes like that. It's not as simple as a yes or no answer.

How do you know we have no idea of what God is?
Have you heard of ''as above so below''? In short it means that everything is being played out the same way.

I'm glad that the little girl is getting better no matter what they saw and to me that's what is important here.

Here is my question, why didn't "angels" prevent this girl from getting sick to start off with, why would angels allow this girl to become so sick that she almost died? Did your "god" want this girl to be sick as well and make her this way?
