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.

The Creature from the Black Lagoon.

A form arising in the mud from a distant song. To collapse after the last note is played.

Did that form pass on the music correctly? Is it a keeper song? Does it have future potential in a larger ensemble?

Only the composer knows.

I'm playing poetic today before going off to get new glasses.

Perhaps I will get a new perspective on the world. Maybe even Christine will look good to me, and I don't have to use my imagination.

Right.

Common sense and intuition should tell you that intelligent design exists because you use it everyday. We all do.

From a wristwatch to a battleship to a skyscraper, humans employ intelligent design all the time.

But when it comes to something as complex as the universe, earth, humans, and all life - nope, you can't imagine that.

Must be by accident.

More like reminding militant Atheist of the freedom of religion clause in the United States Constitution.
Of course Atheist never appreciate this. They would prefer that the constitution be modified where freedom is removed.
Your not free if you don’t have a choice. I thought I would never come up against people in my own country that stood against freedom.
Our freedoms are always under attack. I’ve seen it first hand here in this sleepy historical city I live in. The place where Abraham Lincoln walked and lived.
We the People, need to fight those who want to undermine the constitution and strip us of our freedoms.
My country,'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!
2
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.
3
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
4
Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.
Additional verse to celebrate Washington's Centennial
5
Our joyful hearts today,
Their grateful tribute pay,
Happy and free,
After our toils and fears,
After our blood and tears,
Strong with our hundred years,
O God, to Thee.
Additional verses by Henry van Dyke
6
We love thine inland seas,
Thy groves and giant trees,
Thy rolling plains;
Thy rivers' mighty sweep,
Thy mystic canyons deep,
Thy mountains wild and steep,--
All thy domains.
7
Thy silver Eastern strands,
Thy Golden Gate that stands
Fronting the West;
Thy flowery Southland fair,
Thy North's sweet, crystal air:
O Land beyond compare,
We love thee best!
Additional Abolitionist verses, 1843, A. G. Duncan
8
My country,'tis of thee,
Stronghold of slavery, of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Where men man’s rights deride,
From every mountainside thy deeds shall ring!
9
My native country, thee,
Where all men are born free, if white’s their skin;
I love thy hills and dales,
Thy mounts and pleasant vales;
But hate thy negro sales, as foulest sin.
10
Let wailing swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees the black man’s wrong;
Let every tongue awake;
Let bond and free partake;
Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
11
Our father’s God! to thee,
Author of Liberty, to thee we sing;
Soon may our land be bright,
With holy freedom’s right,
Protect us by thy might, Great God, our King.
12
It comes, the joyful day,
When tyranny’s proud sway, stern as the grave,
Shall to the ground be hurl’d,
And freedom’s flag, unfurl’d,
Shall wave throughout the world, O’er every slave.
13
Trump of glad jubilee!
Echo o’er land and sea freedom for all.
Let the glad tidings fly,
And every tribe reply,
“Glory to God on high,” at Slavery’s fall.
Jeez dude, that was a giant pantload of jingoism.

And all for nothing, sadly, because you do have religious freedom. And no one is trying to take that away from you. What you don't get to do is foist your religious belief onto others or the government. Sorry if you don't like that.

Tell me just how do Christian groups use the government to foist their ideology on other people? Here is a chance for you to do some critical thinking.
Well, first of all, providing you with an example is not critical thinking, so that right there suggests you don't know what critical thinking skills are. But aside from that, let's take just one example: prayer in public schools.
