Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Have you given up racism? Misogyny? Homophobia?
I will reconsider if I see growth and maturity on your part.
Man up and let's see.
Catcher doesn't suffer that stuff, and you know it.
I have no homophobia to give up, I don't know why you've ranted on and on about it.

Your level of maturity humors me. You think that if a person thinks exactly like you do, they are now mature.

Don't talk to me about manlihood, you have a childish, liberal, yuppie, city boy, subdivision mind that couldn't survive without the grocery store and a credit card.

There is such a lot you don’t know.

Have you been on vacation or what?

Did you cherry pick a single line from my post or what?

Yes'm.

That's not cherry picking.

What a hoot you are.

I asked you if you have given up racism, misogyny and homophobia, and you deny the homophobia.

It's like the guy who was criminally charged with having sex with a horse, a dog and a chicken, and he was appalled.

"A chicken?" he asked in an offended tone.

"I never had sex with a chicken!"

He or she is still playing in the key of R sharp which is extremely difficult. In fact few have mastered the R diminished 9th chord yet!
Are you a keyboard player?
If so you should worship Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson.

Buy a Wersi

I don't think synthesized music is as difficult nor as creative as acoustic music. Tico Tico played on a wind instrument, especially a brass, is much more difficult that this Wersi bullshit. The skill it takes to play this on a trumpet for example, is 100 times more difficult and in the end much more HUMAN. Electronic expression, if there is such a thing, cannot, nor never will, rival human expression in music.

Yes, I very much enjoy Oscar, worship? no, I don't worship anything or anyone, I marvel at their skills and creativity and how they transfer that to the listener.

Look man, I know you have a problem with honesty but it's your problem.

I openly admit that I'm a big misogynist and a wee bit racist. But I'm not homophobic by any means.

You'll have to square with that one day.

<quoted text>It was just Valentines Day a few dat ago, I played My Funny Valentine at a concert, guess what the first chord was? C-, then C-M7, and then..........yep C-7. My Funny Valentine is based on C-, the MELODY is based on C-, so is:
1.) Autumn leaves
2.) The Theme to James Bond (w/line cliche)
3.) The Summer Knows
4.) The Shadow of Your Smile
5.) Beethovens 5th Symphony, 3rd movement I think
6.) Alone Together
7.) Duke Ellington's In A Sentimental Mood
8.) Gold Finger (main theme)
9.) Mahlers Adagio
10.) Samuel Barbers Adagio for Strings.
You're not only a liar, you're a complete dishonest assclown. How does it feel to have your ass kicked over and over? Expert in all things, ha ha ha expert in jackin off maybe, but nothing else. Loser!!!
I imagine that you're also pretty familiar with rock classics. Rock music is rarely in Cm. Common minor keys are Am and Em because of the guitar's tuning and the ease of playing those chords in the open position, which is important to folky style players, who generally require capos the play in other keys.

The only two songs I am familiar with in Cm are Led Zeppelin's Since I've Been Loving You, which is a very slow 12-bar blues variant in Cm, with some truly excellent lead guitarring which can be heard here


Cm / Fm / Cm / Cm /
Fm / Fm / Cm / Cm /
Gm / Ab Fm / Cm Bdim Cm Eb / D7 Dbmaj7 /

and Pink Floyd's Dogs of War, also a 12-bar structure, but very different from the usual I-IV-V structure

Cm / Cm / Cm / Cm /
Ebm / Ebm / Cm / Cm /
Ab / Fm / Cm / Cm /

It's fun discussing music this way. Your musical world is much bigger than mine, but I recognize many of the same elements,and enjoy discussing them.

Christians. First they get hit upside the head with the Establishment Clause and then they get hit with this:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
What shall the Christians do next? Prey on children?
I'm just guessing.
Pray for children, sweets, not prey.
