God doesn't infect anyone with AIDS, people do that on their own accord using their God-given free will.
I will never contract AIDS through my own choices. It's nice knowing that.
As far as Hell goes, you've been duly warned. You know what to expect and you choose to do nothing about it. You'll send yourself there, God won't.
And who do you believe created AIDS?

Honey you canít just claim your god created the good bits and expect everyone you donít like to create the bad bits, that puts them on an equal creation footing to your god and I am sure you would not want that. For your god to have been responsible for creation then he must by definition have created AIDS, childhood leukaemia, cancer, malaria and so much more.

How do you know that you will never contract AIDS through your own choice. I know you are great at giving out Americanisms so please accept this bit of British wisdom in return Ė A standing prick has no conscience

Why do godbots always assume that threats of hell are going to effect anyone other then there own conscience?

The innovative musician is the one who cherishes what has been done, knows the history, respects the tradition, and then in his own way, finds the means to move the art form forward.
I don't have an 8 track, I consume my music, for the most part, live.
Yes, to each his own, good luck in your endeavors.
Thank you and I think you should listen to your electronic music professors a little more. You have much to learn. A good educator should not be close minded.

In popular music, a synth lead is generally used for playing the main melody of a song, but it is also often used for creating rhythmic or bass effects. Although most commonly heard in electronic dance music, synth leads have been used extensively in hip-hop since the 1980s and rock songs since the 1970s.

Most modern music relies heavily on the synth lead to provide a musical hook to sustain the listener's interest throughout an entire song.

A synth pad is a sustained chord or tone generated by a synthesizer, often employed for background harmony and atmosphere in much the same fashion that a string section is often used in acoustic music.

Typically, a synth pad plays many whole or half notes, sometimes holding the same note while a lead voice sings or plays an entire musical phrase.

Often, the sounds used for synth pads have a vaguely organ, string, or vocal timbre.

Much popular music in the 1980s employed synth pads, this being the time of polyphonic synthesizers, as did the then-new styles of smooth jazz and New Age music.

German band 'tangerine dream' scored the movie thief with James Caan all electronic 40+ yrs ago!
You remain a fossil!

Wake up and listen to the future professor

What point? You wrote something to the effect Christian nations have the highest cases of AIDS. Is that true and are you saying Christianity causes AIDS? Perhaps they do not kill them off or underreport? You made no point. Other than an underhanded insinuation. That means cheap shot.

Few people can twist history as well as you. Hitler never read Darwin - he read Herbert Spencer. That's Social Darwinism, not Darwinism. Darwin was quite against the Social Darwinists. But we both know you're going to ignore that and push your attack on Darwin because of your strange religious bias against evolution.
I'm not surprised someone of your weak mental stature doesn't understand the difference, but the "Social" there is quite meaningful.
I understand the "social" component just fine, little chickie.

I also understand the "Darwinism" component. So did Hitler and the Nazis. They were steeped in it. Damned fanatics about it, you might say.

By the way, "Darwinism" and "evolution" are not the same thing. I'm a huge supporter of evolution. Darwinism? Not so much.

Keep showing up, and I will continue to tutor you.

Why bother asking a question if you're just rant on and on like you already know the answer?

I believe that God created AIDS.

God doesn't transmit it, people do.

Stupid, immoral people.

Nope.

You can blame the sexually immoral for knowingly spreading the virus.

Then you can blame the medical industry that messed up.

God did neither of those.

So you can't blame the God you claim not to believe exists...

We should check with New Atheist guru, Sam Harris.

He might suggest murdering all HIV-positive people. He suggested murdering religious people for their thoughts, before any actions. The threat of an HIV carrier should be at least as dangerous.

What about it Sam? Thumbs up or down?
