    The romans and greeks didnt think that creative people(artists and such) were creative, They believed that creativity flowed through you from a divine source. A "spirit" of creativity chose you for some unknowable reason to channel creativity. They called these spirits "daemons"

    Thats not true. well biblically speaking

    Is creativity good?

    James 1:17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

    Daniel 2:22 He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.

    Earth is a shadow or a copy of heaven therefore ideas on earth originated in heaven

    creativity is the generation of ideas. thus creativity comes from God.

    on the other hand if this creativity and the ideas generated aim to set itself up against
    the knowledge of God and his word. then it is demonic in nature.

    wasnt untill the rennaisance that they started thinking of creativity being solely the work of the individual....

    all i was saying is that way back in the day the romans and greeks thought spirits of with artistic skill picked certain people to channel through. That when someone created a masterpiece, he had only done so because he was lucky enough to have a very skilled "daemon" to put him to work

    Are you sure the Greeks called them "daemons?" That they didn't call them "muses?"

    Either way, it's a... it's neither here nor there. The ancient Greeks came up with ideas for atoms and are responsible for our initial knowledge of astronomy. But at the same time, they also believed that eyes shoot out beams of light for us to see with. So it's only worth so much.

    So what are you really trying to say?

    the similarity between daemons and demons..... and how originally before christianity took over daemons were considered good and geniuses. I also dont even know if they are supposed to be the same thing.... i was just going on the spelling similarity..... and That when someone shined bright and created/performed any kind of artistic masterpiece whether it was poetry, artwork, music, that they were channelling a piece of gods kingdom, essentially god.

    People used to think they were witnessing the works of gods not the actual humans work who did it.

    which takes me to a little segway, The moors used to chant "allah, Allah" in appreciation whenever they saw someone shine in some talent. The spaniards took this away and bastardized this into "ole!" ...

    What makes us "in the image of God" is that we have creative ability
    angels do not. heavenly beings do not.

    also we have the ability to create life in our image.

    so you mean to tell me that the angels in the choir you ranted about have no creative ability?

    so its a heavenly choir of terrible tone deaf angels?


    Now THAT is gay as fuck and equally hilarious

    Angels are classified in a few ways designed to do specific things.

    for instance the angels ur talkin bout are worship angels.
    u then have messenger angels, watchers, warrior angels,
    Angels that gaurd specific things. but they all were made to fulfill certain tasks.

    But humans are the only things with that creative ability
