LYRICS

CHORUS:

I’m city bred, I love that urban groove
Constant change, always on the move
Meet with friends, view the sites
Dance all night under neon light
I’m city bred, I love that urban groove

VERSES:

Keep your hat, your rusty ute
Keep your bale of hay
Keep your hut on your outback farm
Living far away

Keep your twang, your way out west
Keep your cowboy dream
Keep your barn, your broken fence
Keep your old world steam

BRIDGE:

Whatever your taste, whatever your creed
Whatever your faith, whatever your need
It’s in that urban groove

Keep your flanno and nasal drawl
Keep your yodel noise
Keep your dog and cattle poo
Keep your band of boys

Keep your tractor and your banjo
Keep your fading past
Chew your wheat, milk the crowd
Keep your horse and cart

WHAT IF I'M WRONG?

Some very basic philosophical questions: "What really matters to you? How should you then live?" You can find out the answer by measuring the time you spend on certain activities. This is relevant to atheists, theists, agnostics and non-theists. If any person associated with those groups spends the majority of their time telling other people how they should live their lives then they probably don't have much of an "authentic" life ( to quote atheist Jean-Paul Sartre). They are, instead, totally consumed with ensuring everyone else has the exact same world-view as themselves and are thus "inauthentic".

I'd rather live my own life and enjoy it than spend my life consumed with telling others what to do and how they are wrong because they don't share my worldview.

An "inauthentic" life becomes worse when, if you follow some of the new atheists, you are supposed to spend at least part of it mocking the views of others. Mocking is not a logic argument. Therefore my question is: "Is it far more important to spend the vast majority of your limited time telling others that they are wrong rather than living your own finite life? What is the benefit of such a life both to oneself and to others?" Whatever your answer, it is equally relevant to atheists, theists, agnostics and non-theists.

Of course, the other huge philosophical question is: "What if I am wrong and I have spent the majority of my finite life telling people to follow my error?"

The most annoying person at any concert - "The Whistling Arsehole".

The most annoying person at any concert - "The Whistling Arsehole". This person apparently is not interested in listening to the music played by the band on stage. Instead, "The Whistling Arsehole" has paid for a ticket so that they can give continuous ear-piercing whistles (usually out of key and out of time) directly behind your head. As a result you can't hear anything except the deafening noise as they blow air out their orifice.

MARK TINDALL "GROWING UP (NOT GROWING OLDER)"

My latest song "Growing Up (Not Growing Older)" from the 2015 album "The Place" available for free download at http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13237038

LYRICS

CH:

Growing up
Not growing older
Growing up

VS:

Getting better all the time
Maturing like a good fine wine

Getting smarter all the time
Getting wiser crime by crime

Getting better all the time
Wear and tear but feeling fine

Collecting wrinkles over time
Milestones met along the climb

"There is no God" is an atheist claim. Prove it!

"There is no God' is a claim by atheists.

The burden of proof is definitely upon such atheists to give a positive argument with verifiable evidence that their extraordinary claim is correct.

Where is the scientific experiment conducted by atheists that definitively proved that "There is no God"? How was the experiment conducted? Which science journal was it published in and who were the researchers? How did they define the God whom they state doesn't exist? What is the exactly measured probability and what calculation was used to get that probability?

Note that the above claim puts to rest the incorrect notion that atheists never make claims about God. The advertisement is a direct claim.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

claim [kleɪm]
n
...
2. an assertion of something as true, real, or factual

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I demand evidence for the extraordinary atheist claim that "There is no God". The absolutist claim that "There is no God" is a dogma by dictionary definition.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
dog·ma (dôgm, dg-)
n. pl. dog·mas or dog·ma·ta (-m-t)
...
2. An authoritative principle, belief, or statement of ideas or opinion, especially one considered to be absolutely true.
3. A principle or belief or a group of them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"He who asserts must prove." The burden of proof is upon the person who claims "There is no God."

Quoting Christopher Hitchens - "That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence." If atheists cannot give positive evidence for their claims then their claims can be dismissed.

Why do the rules above not apply to atheist claims? Isn't a rejection of these rules for atheists a case of special pleading?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Atheist A accepts standard(s) S ["Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." & "He who asserts must prove." ] and applies them to those who are not atheists in circumtance(s) C [Statements of belief and / or nonbelief]

Atheist A is in circumstance(s) C [Stating the extraordinary claim of nonbelief "There is no God"].

Therefore Atheist A is exempt from S.

MARK TINDALL "WANDER WONDER"



My latest song "Wander Wonder" from the 2015 album " The Place". http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13173842

LYRICS

VS

Living here in paradise
Filled with sun and cloudless skies
Here I am without a care
Wandering through with wondrous stare

CH:

Wandering through the garden
An apple in my hand
Wondering in the garden

Amazing times moving slow
Don’t ask me how it grows
Nature breathes, it’s meaning hides
Hidden truth till views collide

Life grows old and time ticks out
I wonder what it’s all about
Night and day, life and death
While I take another breath

Asking questions all my life
Count the doubts out in the light
What’s divine and who am I
What’s that spark that’s in your eye

How’d I get from there to here
What’s that whisper in my ear
Talking snake with prying eyes
Reptile breath and tricky lies
