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.

If there were a "war on christianity" would you expect to find a church on every street corner? I think not.

Your rationality is affected by some deeper issues as exemplified by your passion on the subject.
Those special moments will come to a screeching halt. You might not even have the opportunity to realize how insignificant they truly were.
So, tell me, how is it going now that you have entered the Previously Important Person phase of your existence?
Oh, and in regards to your music criticism. It is most fortunate for the vast majority of humans that we are not under your influence like those in your previous important person phase, and thus be forced to appreciate your aesthetic values and determinations of what is special and what is not.
Have a nice day.:-)
You seem to think that displaying passion is somehow evidence of some kind of disfunction. I guess that emotion is an uncommon occurrence in the mechanical mind. Sorry you are so....incomplete.

The "important person" phase of my existence had been going on since I was basically a teenager. So for quite some time now, thanks for asking!!!

You may listen to any music you care to, I could give two shits what you find entertaining. I was simply commenting on the childlike and vapid nature of that particular piece of music.

It is said that you can tell a lot about a society by its architecture and art forms. It appears you would be perfectly happy in a society of mud huts and childlike scrawling on the walls. It takes a certain level of intelligence to listen to complex music. The intellect is key in understanding and thereby appreciating complex music. If you simply listen of "ear candy" then vapid, transparent music is fine for you and millions more. There are however, a substantial number of those who demand more, who enjoy the journey, who revel in the complex fabric, who have the ability to follow the melodic and harmonic threads and realize there destinations. With your machine like mind you could never experience these moments, so better you stick to your vapid and transparent music. Leave the heavy lifting to creative mind. And thanks, you have a nice day also.....

All Christian religions have some commonalty. The believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. And they believe in the Constitution and the Bill of rights. The right to freedom of religion.

Your statement,“Most sects believe that all other sects are not christian;” This happens to be not true as you are prone to make untrue claims.

There are doctrinal differences between different Christian religions but they all believe in Christ.

Subhuman. Nice. Makes you superior, right?
Gee, and you don't even believe in a Hell.
You got issues.
Yep, I have serious issues with people I don't even know wishing me eternal torture. Ahh, Christians, what a warm and loving bunch!!!!

Most Christians think that a majority of Atheist are as**oles. That’s another thing we all have in common. When I read your post that shores up my position on Atheist.(Shoring up is a Naval term, I got from ROTC).

Aww, I touched a nerve.

I enjoy music. Have a nice collection of everything from Barbershop to Wagner, with a lot of blues, New Age, world, Celtic, country, rock,etc. Like most all of it except Italian opera. Ugh. I like things that resonate with me. Some simple, and some very complex. I certainly don't feel obligated to accept someone else's critiques, particularly when they are on a false ego trip, and come up with that complex crap. You sound like one each standard classical and opera snob.

Don't take it personal, I am an equal opportunity pompous ass poker.:-)

Have a pleasant evening.

Good question, to some extent they do because they have a large following here in the United States.

NASA should have considered a new shuttle fleet with shuttles that are about 1/3 the size they were and a cabin ejection system similar to what the F-111 had. I’m a fan of NASA and worked down the road from Johnson Space Center. I just don’t think they are going in the right direction as far as man space exploration goes.
The Orbiter bay is the size it is specifically to be able to launch specific USAF satellites, and since the gov't was paying, this was their one primary requirement.

Everything else about the Orbiter design was cost cutting decisions to accommodate their 1 primary requirement.
