82. just because
you don't believe in angles doesn't mean angles don't exist. And there is quite a bit of evidence of angles. Just pick up any plane geometry book. or examine the corner of the table your 'puter is sitting on. Or take a close, close gander at the letter "L."

As far as angels, is there scientific evidence? No. But there was no scientific evidence of a *lot* of things for a long time, until instruments were invented to observe and measure them. Does that mean they did not exist and that the scientists who hypothesized them lacked critical thinking skills?

And for many people there is plenty of non-scientific evidence of angels. Such as their own, personal, direct experience. Non-testable, non-repeatable on demand, non-observable except by the experiencer. But very real to them, nonetheless.
