"You're right, Spud, it is a sad song, especially the lines And now, my friend, we're older but no wiser For in our hearts our dreams are still the same. The song is almost magical, because it somehow made me feel way back in 1968 a lot how…"

"It's been some time since I discovered the work of Pat Metheny's former keyboard man, Lyle Mays.  His chops on the 88s have enlivened my stereo listening sessions for a while, so I thought it was about time I shared some of his pieces…"

Types of agnosticism

Agnosticism can be subdivided into several categories. Variations include:

Agnostic atheism
Agnostic atheists are atheistic because they do not have belief in the existence of any deity, and agnostic because they do not claim to know that a deity does not exist.
Agnostic theism
The view of those who do not claim to know of the existence of any deity, but still believe in such an existence.
Apathetic or pragmatic agnosticism
The view that there is no proof of either the existence or nonexistence of any deity, but since any deity that may exist appears unconcerned for the universe or the welfare of its inhabitants, the question is largely academic.[16]
Ignosticism
The view that a coherent definition of a deity must be put forward before the question of the existence of a deity can be meaningfully discussed. If the chosen definition is not coherent, the ignostic holds the noncognitivist view that the existence of a deity is meaningless or empirically untestable.[17] A.J. Ayer, Theodore Drange, and other philosophers see both atheism and agnosticism as incompatible with ignosticism on the grounds that atheism and agnosticism accept "a deity exists" as a meaningful proposition which can be argued for or against.
Strong agnosticism (also called "hard," "closed," "strict," or "permanent agnosticism")
The view that the question of the existence or nonexistence of a deity or deities, and the nature of ultimate reality is unknowable by reason of our natural inability to verify any experience with anything but another subjective experience. A strong agnostic would say, "I cannot know whether a deity exists or not, and neither can you."
Weak agnosticism (also called "soft," "open," "empirical," or "temporal agnosticism")
The view that the existence or nonexistence of any deities is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable; therefore, one will withhold judgment until/if any evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say, "I don't know whether any deities exist or not, but maybe one day, when there is evidence, we can find something out."
Spiritual Agnostic
Agnostics who follow a devoted practice to traditionally religious spiritual practices in the absence of the knowledge of God while being irreligious.

Mom, there's an alien in my closet.

Posted on August 17, 2013 at 7:00pm 6 Comments

Well, religion is fun to trounce but there are also other extraordinary and unsubstantiated claims out there.  Aliens is a big one these days.  From the History Channel's "ancient alien theorists" to your Billy Bob abductees and even some politicians.  Take this guy:

Thinking About Gay Stuff.

It's 5:03 in the morning.

I was just laying in bed, about to sleep and feeling tired finally after a nights work and mental stimulation. I was comfortable and I was ready to sleep. However, I couldn't stop thinking about a conversation that I had with someone while at work…

Did Jesus Rise from the Dead Debate

Posted on February 7, 2013 at 3:46pm 0 Comments

This debate perfectly illustrates the difference between the Christian short sighted emotional appeals and atheist reason and free-thought. I hadn't heard of Dr. Richard Carrier before, but I'll definitely be watching more of his stuff.  Enjoy.

Ning's group search sucks. If you spell it slightly differently, such as plural instead of singular, it's "not found." I've had much frustration over that. I find the generalized search along the right margin above Latest Activity can be helpful sometimes.

I see you've created a Music Lovers group, after failing to find Sound Advice.
