"Bach the time traveler! I agree with the salient details of your comment about the patronage of ancient music, with the exception of the troubadours, much of the music at and before Bach’s time was commissioned by the church. Yet surely…"

"I was talking to Rebecca Watson about what I thought was the fact that vegetarians in the skeptic and atheist movement were rare. She claimed it was not so, and on casting a wider, (inter), net I see she’s right. I wonder whether there’s…"

"That’s a good point Traffician. The Beatles were exceptional, I’ll give you that, but the pop/rock genre for me is itself a decline. Incidentally, Paul, I’ve heard, is a Bach fan and responsible for using the sound of the baroque…"

From Bach to Britney

If one where to ask me the question oft asked of Richard Dawkins; what would you consider the strongest argument for god? I would not answer that it’s the appearance of fine-tuning in the universe - the lotto fallacy answers that. Nor would I suggest any great declarations biblical or otherwise – that’s just conjecture. No I would have to say it’s the oeuvre of J.S.Bach. I’m not sure if others in the arts, perhaps a connoisseur of dance or poetry, can also be so awe-struck, but it boggles the…See More

Welcome to this great site and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and giant fraud that it is, and that God and gods are merely fictions filling up valuable space inside some unlucky people's heads.

Terry Meaden (60+) originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
