Your difficulties with ignorance is noted. By some of us.
There are about 653 people reading the entire Top Stories forum, of which this is but one. Hardly a worthy venue for you to display your ignorance issues when there are more visible venues for your talent to be displayed.
I appreciate your pity, but would appreciate your sending money and some young pussy to help me spend it even more. Such would get my lonely old self off of here and probably eliminate my display of pseudo intellect, leaving the forum wide open for yours.

Let me see...
Rocks are atheists. You are an atheist.
This whole thing is starting to make sense.
Your problem, Butt Cheeks is that you are not *quite* as smart as a rock is.

This is why you have faith, you see.

Even **rocks** are smarter and better educated than you.

OK Blob.
I'll limit myself to everything.
You give such rich advice.
You see, Butt Cheeks, you are dumber than a box of rocks.

You admitted it earlier.

That is *almost* a demonstration of intelligence-- sadly, a feature you lack completely.

Telling the world what you do for "fun" is not a very good idea, Butt Cheeks.

Your police record is long enough as it is-- but here you go, telling everyone what you do every night.

No *wonder* you are so brain-damaged-- if the above is what you do for "fun".

Sad.

The BBC (and others) have done measured and blind subjective tests on various cable types and the quality of the cable has no baring on the sound quality.
However I do know a couple of audiophiles that swear blind that their monster cable sounds better.
There was a very curious study done a few years back, about wine tasters.

These people are professionals at testing wine and such.

But they were easily fooled by the pre-perception of the wines in question.

The study used the same wine for all the "tests", but bottled it under various labels, some quite expensive, some el-cheapo, and so on.

The testers uniformly graded the various wines commiserate with the labels on the bottle.

Even EEG machines, which objectively measured the level of brain-interaction seemed to agree.(complicated to go into how the formed a base line for that)

In short? Our own perceptions of whatever it is we are enjoying are directly affected by our own prejudices-- the parts of our brains which reward things we like, and discourage things we don't, can be affected by what we perceive about an experience, even before the actual experience itself.

So it's not quite as cut and dried as all that-- but I do take your point, that the cable itself, so long as it's adequate (or better) for the electrical needs, cannot affect the actual sound produced.

But. The listener's *perception* can be adversely affected if he/she thinks the cables are inferior in some fashion. His/her brain actually changes the experience into a negative one-- based on what he/she *thinks* is happening.

So much for objectivity. <laughing>

You and Butt Cheeks have a thing going? Clearly, you pulled your trousers down for him, but were embarrassed when someone caught you at it?

<quoted text>you really don't have to try and convince us that the God your worship is NOT omnipotent, we pretty much figured that out. The bible not only talks about his limitations but the undeniable human characteristics and undesirable traits that accompany this God thing. Killing is most certainly an undesirable trait, as is condoning slavery, rape and blood sacrifice. And as far as the bible is concerned.........."It's almost as if the bible was written by racist, sexist, homophobic, violent, sexually frustrated men-instaed of a *loving* God."
Right now, God is impotent and is called "a worm". Psalm 22:6. Although God is in part nature, she cannot control it and is not responsible for natural disasters. Most people attribute these things to God. The heavens and earth will be recreated by God and hopefully, it should be a better world. When the Messiah (God) returns to spirit form, he will be omnipotent and will go from a worm to a cockatrice.(a deadly venomous serpent) Isaiah 14:29. In the flying roll, it's from a shrimp to a barracuda.

That's very odd. I don't doubt that it happened, but it's still odd.
Churches drive me nuts when they do that kind of stuff. I noticed that most of them go through the singing and dancing and the "Praising of God" right before tithe.
It's a quirky little trick that they do, they get people all uppity and feeling really good about themselves and then ask for money.
It's a shame, it really is.
"Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter". Isaiah 56:11. This describes modern Christianity to a T. It's nothing but a money making machine. You cannot buy your way into heaven, It's a free gift and there is no ransom.

Good comeback.
Just wondered if anyone would pick up on it and, by god, you did. That was kinda speaking in tongues, wasn't it?
