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.

Glass harmonica. More modern, but basic principle to make music.

Don't forget handsaws, spoons, hollow logs, beer bottles, and other things creative people can make music with.

With zero training from a horn tooter.

I watched as much as I could stand, the planets haven't changed their position in 7 billions years, they've alined in a number of different ways, but their orbits have remained unchanged thanks to gravity. Exactly what am I supposed to get out of this? There is nothing that can shatter my world view or my ego, especially a film that deals with pure speculation.

The atheist-founded ACLU supports distribution of not just pornography, but of child pornography, and has gone to court to say so. They have sent their lawyers to argue for NAMBLA and free distribution of kiddie-porn in a case where it led to the murder of a child by a pedophile.

Bedtime.

That video is closer to the truth than what you have been instructed to think.

Watch it and note the symbology. Unmistakable.

This universe is a lot more dynamic than a math head can handle. They have to freeze frame for their numbers to work. The universe really doesn't care how they think it should be,

It was never about "equality".
It was about "endorsement".
Equality was already in force - a gay person could not marry another of the same sex, and neither could a straight person.
That's equality. The agenda is "endorsement".
Left-wingers are great at shrouding their agenda in nice-sounding words - like "equality".
See: Changing "gun control" to "gun violence control".
So straight people couldn't marry who they love too. Who was arranging all these marriages?

Your preconceived ideas and the threat to your universe scared you, huh?

Close your eyes and pull the covers over your head.

Take the time to watch the whole thing.
Now don't you think the very smart people who are gathering information form the two Mars rovers could tell the difference between land effected by electrical discharges and water erosion? REALLY NOW!!! All geological evidence points to the surface of Mars as having liquid water. Running water leaves very distinct patterns of erosion on a landmass. And why just on Mars. Does the Earth have similar patters caused by electrical discharges? Go ahead, tell me the Grand Canyon was caused by massive electrical discharges.

Unlike you, i have NO preconceived ideas about the universe, I let cosmologists and astrophysicists tell me how things work. If you can't trust people much smarter than you in specific areas, then who can you trust?

And just how do you know that the universe is a lot more dynamic than incredibly intelligent cosmologists can handle? Why do you have information that these people who have spent their lives studying, do not possess? You received your degree in astrophysicist where? You then went on to get your doctorate degree where? And the tile and publishing dates of the books you have written? And you are now active in the field in what capacity, and where? Have you ever thought of contacting these brilliant men and instructing them on the errors of their ways? You'd be doing them a service in pointing out how wrong they have been all these years.

The you also have jugs, washboards, wash tub bass fiddles, kazoos.
All sorts of music out there.
No super ego horn tooters needed.
If it weren't for super ego horn tooters we would all still be reduced to the primitive jugs, washboards and kazoos. Thankfully we have musicians who think forward motion is really important.

Get some world music. The Global Meditation volumes 1-4 are good.
My attention span for unbelievably simplistic and repetitive music is about 8 seconds. Someone blowing through a log and a drummer are capable of holding someone with intelligence, for about 3 seconds. I actually have played this instrument, its is incredibly easy to play, not much craft here.

Again you must show proof for your god before you can assign properties to it. That is logical.

Why don't you just copy and paste your link to the transcendential argument apologetic page you are stealing from?

It would save time. It's a piss poor argument that relies on jumping to conclusions and special pleading.

A little observation on egos, notably the over developed kind.
It is like driving down a dark highway with your brights on. You can only see what your light shines on.
Education and other such training makes those lights brighter. It also make it harder to see the dark on the side. Your eyes adjust for that extra brightness.
You miss a lot, and assume a lot.
You get an educated and civilized person going into a more primitive, or educated and civilized in a different way, and they can develop a tendency to assume a higher station in life to these poor unfortunates that weren't educated their way.
Of course, they assume the locals can see such as a given. However, they have been doing pretty well their way for generations.
Some of them are nice and gracious by their customs. Others are eager to see what wealth they can get out them. They both smile. Up to a point anyhow. The problems come when the egos try to revamp the system they invaded.
It is very hard for a superego to see the world for what it is. It is even harder to see what lies beyond it. Anything they see will have to fit into their headlights.
