Re: Killing me softly.

And then again, there is this website, with whole lists of misheard song lyrics. :laughter: That reminds me of a surrealist music group I formed in my mid-20s. We called ourselves The Wife of a Clothespin, based on mishearing "the wife of a close friend" from Carly Simon's "You're So...

Not really. At least you can fact check things on Dawkins' site, as opposed to the bible where you are told not to put God to the test.

Re: Ok.

The one thing that pisses me off about America is that it forgot the rest of the world had value. I did? Stuck up, arrogant, snobbish elitists, is what we've become. The leader of the free world my foot. America could learn great deal from listening to the rest of the world. It's almost embracing w...

Re: Rabbi - why sucking a baby's penis in circumcision is go

Why would God put a foreskin on a schwanz if he wants it to be removed? To demonstrate one's faith and commitment to their loving and caring God, obviously... I know that you were being sarcastic to the Bleevers, to whom I beg the question, "If God knows everything, past, present and future, h...

Re: Dawkins: giving atheism a bad name?

From what I hear, all atheists give atheism a bad name. The second I cite a name like Dawkins', Hitchens', et al., as a reference in a debate or discussion, the Bleever before me tries to shut me down. Which is why I never mention them; I similarly shut down when I am quoted bible verses. Which is ...

I am hooked on Steve Reich's amazing "Music for 18 Musicians" - there is nothing else like it, a constant beat for over an hour I might give that a spin when I get home tonight. Right now, I'm listening to A Rainbow in Curved Air by Terry Riley. Right now, I'm listening to Throbbing Grist...
