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. Full Story

David,
You should know that Jesus frowns upon those sheep in his flock that have the temerity to view nudity.

Tsk.

I'm a degenerate brother of Jesus.

You make assumptions you shouldn't.

IOW - You have no idea. You just *think* it wasn't God.
Honey just because the process is not yet fully understood does not mean you can throw in the town and say “I don’t understand so goddidit”
LMAO!

That's cool and it just shows how IDiotic these people are. Even theists in other countries are dumbstruck at the stupidity of the ID movement. A Methodist Minister trolls me about it on Facebook!

I just respond that not all Americans are stupid enough to fall for ID and then pwn his face in on the MMO he plays with me and my buddies. He rolls a silly shadow priest and thinks he's going to dual my Deathknight. Not a prayer's chance he'll win I tell him!:))

He's pretty cool for a preacher man I must say.

Image that, international travel without ID.
Customs may have something to say about that. Tell them when they ask for ID.“Only morons travel with ID.” Good luck.
so an American have to carry a book of Intelligent Design with them all the time?

Music, math, being trapped in formulation.

That is being "educated".

You can never break out of the box if you rely only on formulas you are told to follow. Your enjoyment of life and your knowledge get stunted.



That sort of music is picked out of life, put together by feeling, not education. "Educated" music is cows mooing in unison.

i thought we ALL understood you know nothing about music. Why do you continually embarrass yourself by posting in ignorance? You don't even know enough to be dangerous. You are musically illiterate, you look like a real dope posting on a subject you know nothing about. Stop it before you're fully exposed as a complete nutbag!!!!! OPPS too late!!! LOL

You'd have better luck building a replica of Noah's Ark, that way you could make little figures of all the members of your HERD, and hustle them aboard before you turn on the garden hose!!!!! LOL ..........Stay away from anything that has to do with music, you'll end up injuring yourself!!!! HA HA HA!!! I liked you so much better with your magnets and string!!!! I miss your absurd posts about DNA being a living organism..........come on lest see the old Dave in all his ridiculous spender and glory!!!!!

ID is banned from UK curriculums - about the only country that gives it any credence (aside from a fringe element in the USA) is Rumania.

A sample of Aeolian harp music.

Tuning to pick up pieces of the composition by the Grand Musician.

So much of it to be blended together.

There are a variety of methods to do this beyond just the wind.

This is using math to achieve an end.
