Q&A: The Jitterbugging Angels?

The Jitterbugging Angels?

Question

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin at one time?

Answer

The question is basically a metaphor for engaging in meaningless debate. "Philosophers" using physics, dance dynamics, and even quantum gravity have attempted to answer this age-old question. However, the pursuit of such inquiries have no value. There are more serious issues to be concerned about. As Paul once said, "Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments because you know they produce quarrels" (2 Tim. 2:23).
