Until you can demonstrate otherwise, I'm calling your bluff and calling you out for the liar you are.

Seriously?!
You need me to define two pretty simple words and tell you why they're different?
Stupid atheist.
Well, you don't seem to know the meaning of them. Perhaps you should check out Dictionary.com .

Wrath: vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger.

Seems pretty straightforward to me.

But, he contracted HIV through a blood transplant after his triple bypass surgery - so WHATchoice exactly did he make that brought AIDS to himself?
Why don't you take time to understand what your posting and whether or not it is accurate?
RR doesn't take time to understand because...well...he's RR. It's just the nature of the beast.

You might want to sue your English teacher. She clearly didn't teach you the right definitions for wrath and punishment.

Just cop to it. I did not say punishment, I said wrath.

You are wrong.

Sure. So do you. We all do.
People like Rock Hudson, Freddy Mercury, Liberace, Magic Johnson, Eazy-E and Isaac Asimov all made their choices.
I don't feel one bit sorry for anyone that screws as many people as they can when they contract AIDS or any other STD.
In my view, they chose it because they chose the risk.

Yes, I'll sue my one English teacher.

Anytime anyone argues, or fights, with me, you jump in and are like; "Hi, I'm Catcher and I hate RR too. Let's bash him together because I can't do it by myself."
You're pathetic.

Exactly.

They are so terrified of their evil deity torturing them that they can't admit the truth about it.

You have a penchant for lying.

This, together with your less than rudimentary awareness of the most elementary notions learned in school, leads me to only one conclusion.

After you dropped out of school (which you concede), you did not go back and get a high school degree.

Prove me wrong, if you can.

LOL. I think you've earned the title of thread statistician.
Here's the thing...

Ar aR made the comment once upon a time that I spent "all day" on topix. That was back when I was well below 9,000 posts. I started posting here on May 18, 2009. I "greyboxed" as "Heretic" for about a month before that.

I forget what his number was, at the time, but - even then - his post avg was at 75 per day. It's ranged as high as 114 - per day - but never below 75 - for as long as I've paid attention.

Interestingly enough, my daily avg. for the entire time I've posted on topix has remained pretty consistent, at about 9 per day. That's under the scaritual account and the Nontheist account.

If you recall - I wanted to see if there was a difference between calling yourself a nontheist or an atheist - and if theists reacted differently - there was a difference.

I still have that account.

No. I don't lie.

I dropped out halfway through 11th grade, I wanted to work and I wanted to move out on my own.

Four years later, I went to adult education school downtown and did what I needed for my diploma.

I could prove it to you by emailing you a copy of my diploma.

I won't do that because you're a psycho hose beast.

So no proof for you, Lilly.

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
http://m.youtube.com/watch...
ok I woke up and listened to the "future" Holy Horseshit, there is no way you can be serious about this, REALLY???
Now I know why I steer my student away from this mindless garbage. It starts with something that sounds like a chainsaw at idle, Open 5th, and random open 5th for 1:30, I'm already bored to tears, these idiots think 1:30 of open 5th with chainsaw sounds is spellbinding, PLEASE!!! Then of course we have the obligatory wind sounds, very creative.

Ok, here comes the endless, and I mean endless three note Ostinato, with two triads over the top, and not very creative triads it's the II- to I-,not very exciting, Ok here comes the 6 note melody we'll hear until we're ready to puke, nice melody 5-4-b3-1-2 My granddaught could have written a more creative ditty. This goes on UNCHANGED for 4:45 with a real cheap fade out at the end. I thought fade outs went out in the 70's

No transition just a Choo Choo train sound for a min and another min to set the next boring drum machine groove. I simply couldn't stand anymore, the endless repartition finally got to me. Tie me in a room with this shit and I'll tell you where all the big guns are.

Final analysis: this is called minimalistic music, were everything lasts forever. There is NO fully formed melody only a 6 note motif used endlessly.. There is NO underlaying harmonic scheme, only childish diatonic triads. There is NO key change or change of modality, and this is what makes this no mindless and ultimately boring. Not even an attempt to change to new tonal centers, they probably don't know how, is see a lot of knob turning and tapes spinning, and very little performing They sit with glassy eyes, and slack jaws, no wonder

If this is what you consider a good example of electronic music, shame on you. There is so little music here as to be almost criminal to call it music.

Monotonous, in a monotone, lacking any melodic development, devoid of ANY harmonic scheme, monotonous drum tracks that sound more like a robot playing than a human, It's a collecting of unrelated sounds and special effects.

Whoever put this together knows noting about how to create a sense of drama, they are so into themselves with there chainsaw sounds, they think by having them last for an eternity, they become interesting, the opposite is true, things of very little substance grow old very quick.

Well at least I made it through about 7 min. of this total trash, If this is the future of music, I'll be working with my students to make sure they understand how bad this shit really is
