No proof that the idea of Angels & Demons come from a more ancient and paleolithic time? What?
All one really needs to do is follow some links and read up on Zoroastrian culture. Use google. The ArchAngels were known as Amesha Spentas - Ahura
Mazda (The good god) created these beings to watch over and protect mankind. The name literally means "Beneficent Immortals".
Then there were the Fravashis - the Holy Guardian Angels, and finally the order of Yezatas the lil' adorned angels.
Ahirman (the evil god) converted many of Ahura Mazda's angels to his side and against humanity, as the brother Gods are in a struggle over dominance
of the Earth. (Yes, that should sound very familiar to Christians.
Zoroastrianism is part of your religions cultural heritage. This religion or
"cult" was prevalent from 1500 B.C. until about 400 AD. But once the Council of Nicaea gathered around 400 A.D., to decide what was inclusive and
what was to be omitted from the bible, they decided they better write the angels into scripture, or face a more difficult time converting the
polytheistic nations. Who all had many gods and goddesses. Egyptian deities are even correlated with the many myriads of different angels there are to
read about. They might go by different names. In paganism we call them elemental foces, the fae, or watchtowers, etc.
But hey, you don't even stop there. Look at the Hindu texts and the Deva & Deveta... that is what they call their angel and demons.
And it goes on, and on, deeper into all ancient religions. The "other" beings, or whatever you'd like to call them. Ancestral ghosts, hungry
ghosts... It doesn't really matter. Another world exists alongside our own, that I believe.
