Paul from Canterbury Atheists

One important correction.

“The most important football game in the whole wide world” is the Football World Cup Final (based on T.V viewer audience, share interest alone) Second is the European Football Cup Final, then distant 3rd is The Superbowl.

1.3 billion people watched the last World Cup Final, including replays, and I personally didn’t see Prince (is he using his old name again?) anywhere, when I was in Germany a couple of years ago.

See ya.

Paul.

Randy Newman has an incredible talent for making tunes that are forgotten seconds after they are heard. All except for that one bit of orchestral music that sounds like something Yanni did, in "The Natural". I think that one might have been God-inspired.

Paul:

We all know, here in the civilized world, that the silly little game you refer to is called soccer, which leaves my remark standing unassailed.

I had no idea that atheists knew how to make music but, contrary to your assessment, I like what I've heard of Randy.

Actually, Athiests don't create music...That would be creationism. In reality, they randomly play notes until something comes out that is marketable to the randomly created hearing diaphrams who's randomly assembled biologic systems are willing to dispense assembled pieces of paper or electronic ones and zeros to allow the random sounds to vibrate their hearing diaphrams. (I choose not to go on...I once wrote something like this that went all the way back to the Big Bang ;-)

I admit, I never thought of it that way, but I'm sure you're on to something, though I don't know just what. Nice hearing again from you, Screech.

Thanks Tom. Although the economy has got me working like crazy for a few breadcrumbs, at least there's food on the table..though I'm not quite sure what it is...

I think it doesn't matter whether one is an atheist or not, so long as they believe and do what is right. Everybody is entitled their right to believe what they think is true, and taking away that right or imposing your beliefs on others is something I disagree with.

Why do they have to make a list of atheists anyway? What's the whole point? I think it's wrong if they're doing it to condemn them, but if it's for fun it should be fine.

Now, Branson, that's another story. My musical world would be bleak if Branson had not discovered and promoted Mike Oldfield's music.

I do carry one of Branson's cell phones. Virgin. Which I don't like, as the entire outfit is geared to kids, something I didn't know when I bought it. But I like the pay as you go/ no contract feature. I use my cell phone like an old person. That is, it's not glued to my head. It's just for those odd outgoing calls. Otherwise, it's always off. I don't take incoming calls. That's what the home phone is for.

Mike Oldfield. Hmmmm. I've never heard of him. Looks like I've got some investigatin' to do.

Indeed, indeed... I've always views Mr. Newman as one of America's national treasures due to his sharp wit and uncanny ability to comment on American life with caustic wit. Along with Van Morrison, he's someone that I've always thought I would 'get along with'!

It could be worse though, Cliff Richard could change camps
