If you go into each name and read about them, here - this may be easier for you, every reference in modern scripture is masculine, see if you can disprove it? I had heard this at bible classes and just tried and couldnt... In fact - as the link below says - there is no female form in the original greek, only male.

Goodness me uk-greada - the answer's obvious isn't it???
It's a Brexit pin and therefore can fit any size, shape, volume, or dimension of deluded belief.....

Angels are spiritual entities, they have no need of physical attributes. They exist only to serve God's purpose and spend eternity praising him (Seraphim ifI recall correctly).

I like the idea of the size of the pin, is it one from my sewing box or a celestial thing?

Is that why a number fell to earth to have sex with women ? Or were they lesbian angels? [depends of course on whether you believe in this nonsense in books.]

Lol! I'm a confirmed atheist BUT I find the "romance" of the concept of angels- good or bad as enticing as the best fairy tales.

Heres the stuff on the nephilim if you fancy a read, the ibteresting thing is that all the early writings do literally talk about the fallen angels but theologians later rabidly backpedalled on it with other interpretations.
