Christians are up in arms about music video showing church burnings, but they don't understand its meaning

A music video posted on the homepage of the Rock Beyond Belief Festival, that's being held for atheist servicemen and women in March at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, has roused the ire of several Christian blogs and commentators.

Filmed for the song "Hysteria" by rock band Aiden, the video (posted below), begins with several shots of church and synagogue burnings. Indeed, the song itself uses what appears to be lyrics…

Beauty and Meaning. No gods required.

I brewed a pot of jasmine tea to begin with. I spooned it three teaspoonfuls of leaf into the pot of hot water, making sure it didn’t boil to avoid unnecessary bitterness. After a minute and a half of steeping I removed the leaves and went outside.

 

I had been looking forward to this all day. So I was rather nervous that the album I had planned to experience wouldn’t live up to my hopes. The sky above was overcast, the wind slight and cool. It was not cold enough to be…

Strange albums for Anne

This is a list of albums, music scores and so on

Also I will point out one song from the album, but in some cases this song will be much different then the rest of the album so beware. The reason for this is that some of this albums are rather complex, so every song is different.

Also, most of this sounds horrible at first hearing, but after like ten times it finally sinks under the skin.

p.s. The reason why it took me so long to write this list is because, if I start to…

Atheist Inspired Music

Atheism (especially in America) is often labeled as angry. It seems to be hinted that beauty and poetry stem from other (perhaps more "spiritual") ways of living. 

 

I can appreciate the culture expressed through the ages that can be attributed to the passion of people inspired by their belief in things beyond themselves and their lives, as Dawkins says "Cultural Christianity". 

 

However, in writing music I have found atheism a very rich source to draw upon for…

Sometimes Christianity is the lesser of two evils

I've always felt nothing but disdain for the argument of "Well, at least religion keeps some people in line. It teaches good morals."

Mostly because that's bullshit. If you actually read and followed the Christian holy book, you'd see that the morality there is dubious at best, and bat-shit crazy at worst. 

True, most Americans aren't so big on stoning other people now. They've instead evolved to support the death penalty and console themselves by pipe-bombing abortion clinics.…

Troops punished for not attending Christian rock concert



After a day of training at Fort Eustis, Smith and other trainees were normally released to have personal time, but on May 13, Smith and dozens of others were "required" to march in formation to a concert headlined by an evangelical Christian rock band.

"No option was presented to us off the bat," Smith told Truthout about the required concert.…

Musical trends?

The following blog entry developed out of an online discussion elsewhere. I wondered how others felt about the subject, so I'm blogging it.
It's funny how there's a virtually infinite number of ways to combine musical notes into a song, yet only a select few styles and genres dominate popular music at any given time. Until the advent of free (or pirated) .MP3 music files, I used to think the limited variety of popular music was due to record labels and… Continue

Nobody's Fault but Mine

This is NOT the Led Zeppelin version. I co-opted the Page/Plant version from their "No Quarter" album.



(Here: YouTube Video with Song)



The difference is, I changed it from acoustic to electric, added two guitar solos, made it heavier, drew out the ending a little bit (just to make it slightly more jammy) and changed the lyrics. Here are the changed lyrics:
