Re: Music

There's no match for that improbable combination of Sam Spence's music, John Facenda's voice, Ed Sabol's cinematography...and Roger Staubach.

Re: Great Works of Art

So? Obviously, from a philosophical stance of meaning connected through various aspects of living, I and others more knowedgable might find attention turning towards answering the profound brevity of the so. However, through knowledge of conditions formed by receptions, and because of the implicati...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

Then of course you're free not to discuss it. The real point the author (a professor emeritus of philosophy at Simon Fraser University) is making is that it is a mistake to think in terms of "laws" that "govern" the universe. That is why the very word "law" is suspect because it implies that physic...

Re: The Theory of Evolution - perfect?

For any interested in more on "laws," I recommend this. An old claim, quite predictable from Bible truthers. Keeps being a fallacious argument, as always. This odd distinction between "physical laws" and "scientific laws" is ridiculous. It's just a word game that exploits the possibilities of langu...

Re: Great Works of Art

The masterful art of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, it makes you forget it's only marble. http://s1.lprs1.fr/images/2015/11/26/5315867_b4c43c2c6fe19172cd82a3582fb659d82be3c3b4.jpg http://lh5.ggpht.com/_NNjxeW9ewEc/TKStWDnw3NI/AAAAAAAAE8Q/r_CAXVqH2Es/tmp1821_thumb_thumb2.jpg?imgmax=800 https://2.bp.blogspot.c...

Re: Great Works of Art

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFkSVLCRzvk Very soothing to listen to. I imagine it could put a baby to sleep. Don't doubt it for a minute. Mongolian throat singing. I didn't know Tibetan monks did this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rmo3fKeveo In my case, I became aware of this style because o...

Re: Great Works of Art

There is one more thing that I would like to share with you and that is closely related to our present discussion. I had asked you how you felt when you listened to the Holy Quran previously and the reason for this is that people feel intense positive emotions when they listen to the recitation of ...

Re: Great Works of Art

and as you may well know, from the times of Ataturk,Turkey has been a very secular modern society. I think things have been changing for the better for Turkey since 1994 when the actual President Recep Tayyip Erdogan first took a position of political power in Turkey. At that time, the west and the...

Re: Great Works of Art

If I may ask: is Ebru Muslim? And if so, did your affection for her got you interested in Islam as well? Actually, as she is Turkish, and as you may well know, from the times of Ataturk,Turkey has been a very secular modern society. I believe we got close because of that cosmopolitan element: being...
