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.

The bucket is not the gimmick for him. They would hear the music. Grab the Electric Tears, Electric Sea, Colma, and Look Up There albums and you would never visualize a guy with a chicken bucket on his head.
You are a musical snob. Blinded by your illusion of education in the theory of it.
Music is written in math. It is passed on as math. It takes the individual to listen to it and interpret it, or to modify it to add a little punch. Bending notes and such.
You made reference to your surviving in a rough business earlier. That is because you are self promoter, which trumps real music appreciation. You are biased, let us say.
Plus your taste in music sucks.
:-)
If it wasn't a gimmick he would have NO reason to look so ridiculous, it a gimmick because his music is so vapid, get over it.

Music IS NOT written by MATH, sorry you're so stupid.

Did you know they dedicated a song to you in the Wizard Of OZ. Its called IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN!!!

BTW, if you watch Brian Carroll play you will note his hand is all over that guitar neck and his plucking fingers are flying. Plus his pushing buttons on the equipment. And nice sounds come out. You can assume he knows music. He is acknowledged as as a guitar virtuoso.
Not even close to what Jazz guitarist do. Give it up numbnuts, you know nothing about music and are impressed with flying fingers and no substance.

Why? Biological evolution doesn't address, nor is it dependent on, how life started. Evolution simple states that biology on this planet evolves.

Science has some evidence for earlier life that lead to a number of hypotheses concerning how life got started, but no evidence that it might have been magical deities.

You are welcome to make up any mythical fantasy you want for how life started. Without some evidence, it's just so much made up BS. But if it gives your life meaning, go for it.

It doesn't change biological evolution.

If an Atheist is responsible for mass murder itís perfectly fine according to Atheist.
If itís someone masquerading as a Christian then itís horrendous. This is why they never mention these Atheist Leaders you mentioned. Theyíre ok with it.
All atrocities are horrendous, I just don't try to falsely attribute them to a lack of belief in deities.

You could've just said "I can't answer that. All I know is that scientists says it's true & I believe them."
It would've been the same thing...
You wish.

I actually paid attention in school, read, studied, visited museums (one of my favs is Museum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris).

You should try it some times.

We know Religion is a myth, you (closet hypocrite) suspect it yourself or you would not be reading content found in atheist forums. Jesus has his eye on you in particular David.
Your problem is simply RELIGION
The Christian view that all intercourse outside marriage is immoral was based upon the view that all sexual intercourse, even within marriage, is regrettable.
A view of this sort, which goes against biological facts, can only be regarded by some people as a morbid aberration. The fact that it is embedded in Christian ethics has made Christianity throughout its whole history a force tending towards mental disorders and unwholesome views of life.
The Church had devastating impact upon society. As the Church assumed leadership, activity in the fields of medicine, technology, science, education, history, art and commerce all but collapsed.
Technology disappeared and the Church became the most cohesive power in Western society. The extensive aqueduct and plumbing systems vanished.
Orthodox Christians taught that all aspects of the flesh should be reviled and therefore discouraged washing as much as possible.
Toilets and indoor plumbing disappeared. Disease became commonplace as sanitation and hygiene deteriorated. For hundreds of years, towns and villages were decimated by epidemics.
Europe entered the Dark Ages.
ďOrganised religion is violent, irrational, intolerant, allied to racism, tribalism, and bigotry, invested in ignorance and hostile to free inquiry, contemptuous of women and coercive toward children.Ē

Jazz sounds like shit because it usually is. Once in a while it comes together. Kind of like your abiogenesis.
You react so badly when someone is out of your step. Tsk.
Topix atheists have such limited perspectives. Gee, if I told one their wife was the worst piece of ass I ever had they would fly into a reactive rage and never consider the fact may be I just didn't inspire her to perform like they did. Ego does get in the way of human relations.
Just for you, something you can understand, something that is musically on your level. Something you can easily relate to....ready......row row row your boat....gently down the stream...you know the rest, have fun with it. LOL How does it feel to completely embarrass yourself in front of everyone? Dickwad!!!!!

Your logic system is a bit crippled, as is your ability to follow a discussion.

You are insane.

Buckethead do jazz, too. Lots of dubbing. All sorts of things. He has put out 40 albums. He composed most of his own stuff.

Oh ya, you're still wrong, by about 100 years.
Yes, numerous Treasurer have put it on various coinage, but it was NOT put into law until 1956.

I was born in 1953. "god" was added to our pledge in 1954.

And look at the problems we have now with church-state separation issues. Like I said divided by "god" and the Catholics.

But you keep whining, it becomes you.

Like I said, you ain't got no poetry in you.

Not only does it give him a private life, concealing his identity a bit, but is also a platform for listening to the music. Kind of a music arising from a statue sort of thing. A faceless source of soul. Kiss and your other musical idols are all showbiz.

Yeah! And if the high school navy rotc says that there is no life in the cosmos, it's because he has been everywhere to see for himself!

Now shut the fuck up and listen to the boy! Everyone of his characters is richer, smarter, has better children, a bigger house, and fancier cars than you will ever have!
