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.

Buckethead can fingertap with his left and flip a numchuk with his right. You have to dig to see just what he can do. Plus he plays multiple instruments. Drums, guitar, banjo, keyboard. He knows music.

That version of Look Up There is not the best. You really need CD and good equipment to capture the full tonality and bass. It is pretty rich.

According to Islam, you know... the ones with most recent prophet, Mohammad, you have 9/11 bass ackwards!

The martyrs were granted 72 virgins +(milk n honey) and the 'infidels' sent to Hell!

Ask a Muslim.

Respect is earned, faith is for slot machines

September 11th - The day Allah 'won' and Jesus 'lost'.
Our civilization is not Christian. It does not come from the skies. It is not a result of inspiration but the child of human invention.
My 'respect' vanished as I watched the 'Day of Prayer' in Washington Cathedral, where people of mutually incompatible faiths united in homage to the very force that caused the problem in the first place: RELIGION.
It is time for people of intellect, as opposed to people of faith, to stand up and declare to respect people for what they individually think, rather than respect groups for what they were collectively brought up to believe.
Simple task... Are you up to the challenge Dave?
Provide evidence that your God is the only true God in a way that religions other than yours cannot do.
Provide evidence that your holy book is true in a way that religions other than yours cannot do with theirs.
Until this time, and it will be an eternity - you are only one of many religious cult members - each claiming more or less the same immortality or enlightenment as others.
And the millions chanted in unison holding up their right fist as high as possible,“Atheist Power, Atheist Power, Atheist Power!”

Followed by chants,“Long live Stalin, Long live Valdimir Lenin! Long live Mao Zedong!”

Finally long repeated chants,“Long live Communism!”

Zeeee Comrade you have joined zee revolution!

Spent the remainder of my service time between teaching and playing at the Navy School of Music in Norfork VA. and Fort Dix New Jersey, the last 4 months of my service.
I’m going to take up for those military musicians. They provide a service to their country. Not everyone can do what they do and they have a history going back into the American Revolution. Musicians were no sissies but played a vital role in military battlefields.

Today their role is no less than it ever has. Thank you Doctor for your service you provided to your country.[Salute]

It is not a assumption but rather a observation based on observable facts, logic and reason.

Of course headlines like this remind me of you...

MIDDLESBORO, Ky.(WKYT)- He says without his snakes that he's not obeying the word of God.
A Kentucky pastor is fighting to get back his snakes after police in Tennessee confiscated them.
Police say they found five snakes in his car during a traffic stop.
And now the pastor says his religious rights have been violated.

VATICAN (The Borowitz Report)—Pope Benedict XVI stunned the world for the second time in twenty-four hours today by announcing his decision to come out of retirement.

“I thought I was getting too old for this,” the Pope explained via his Twitter account,“but I’ve still got plenty left in the tank.”

The Pope’s abrupt unretirement left many fans wondering if his original decision was little more than a publicity stunt, but according to one Vatican source,“The situation was a lot more complicated than people know.”

“The Vatican doesn’t make resigning your job as Pope an easy thing to do,” the source said.“In his exit interview, they told him he would have to agree not to sign with another organized religion for three years. Plus, he was going to have to give his 1.5 million Twitter followers back to the Church. The Twitter thing was the deal-breaker.”

For his part, the newly unretired Pope took to his Twitter feed to announce his return in a nonchalant way:“So it turns out I’m not infallible.#FTW.”

Pull your damn pants up, put the pot down, get a friggin job & move outta mom's house already!
Good advise but I would go a little further.

Work hard, get a good education, when you get a job stay off the phone, show up on time, go to work everyday, don’t complain, work, stop smoking, stop asking people for cigarette money, stop stealing from you Mothers purse, stop breaking into peoples homes and stealing, stop eating others peoples lunches when they aren’t looking at work.

When you do move out of Mom’s house, don’t move back in.

Nope ...

"Cults are not new. There have always been inspiring, charismatic, guru-like leaders who have been able to persuade devoted bands of followers that they have the answer to the big question: the meaning of life."
– Jean Ritchie, The Secret World of Cults.

All that is required to be Christian huckster

A towering ego, an insatiable appetite for adoration and applause, a rampant libido, and above all, an eye on the big money, mark out the "charismatic" personality well-suited to the business of religion.

All that is needed is oratorical skill, unbridled ambition and a leg-up from a "name" already in the business if selling Jesus.

Many have trod the path. The roll-call of dishonour speaks volumes. Hiding behind their Bibles and clerical collars are a bunch of crooks and hucksters, womanising egotists and dangerous megalomaniacs.

But they love you!

Fair enough. Call Chicago blues electrically amplified blues as opposed to acoustic Delta blues. Like 'em both, but something about a Stratocaster in the right hands...
