When one conveys certain things, particularly of such gravity, should one not then appropriately cite sources, authorities...

Quote from: AnimatedDirt on November 16, 2011, 05:03:05 AMI'm amazed by more and more songs/poetry against the make-believe from those of higher understanding that ignore exactly there IS to be sung about...THAT can't be ignored.
QuoteMy name is John Johanna, I am misunderstoodLately, I have been accused of grievous murder in cold blood My mission is most righteous, my cause is true and just The wicked need chastisement, you know it's either them or us God told me to I did what I had to do 'Cuz God told me to All around me, empty chatter, the wise men wring their hands Meanwhile in broad daylight Satan gathers his unholy bands The mighty strength of angels carries me on my seeking flight My anger is a hammer, you know not its power or the hour it strikes God told me to I answer not to them or you'Cuz God told me to Seven golden candles flaming bring forth the Son of Man In his mouth a two edged sword, seven stars shining in his right hand The beast has eyes before him, the beast has eyes behind Those not with me are against me, they're surely gonna feel my holy fire God told me to To thine own self be true And God told me to God told me toI'm just doing what I had to do 'Cuz God told me to And God told me to

Is there not an abundance of themes other than God or the making fun of or anger toward the supernatural? If the answer is that there is a multitude of songs from Atheism that sing of the natural world...and so on, why is it that on an Atheist forum the predominant post is a song about God? Is it just better to poke fun at someone rather than promote the Atheist views? To me, looking back at the Atheist Songs thread, it seems like it is exactly that.I say this because of the contrast there is on the opposite side of the coin. A thread amongst Christians asking for good Christian songs is going to have close to 100% of the songs posted about Christianity and the claims therein. There are certainly songs that mention Satan/the Devil/Lucifer and even the nonbeliever, however they are very few in comparison and probably would be even less in mention...that and the mention of a nonbeliever would not be in poking fun at, but rather compassion for.

Quote from: Whitney on November 17, 2011, 12:16:14 AMI submit a bunch of atheists speaking turned into a song that doesn't mention god: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGK84PoeynkSo...I stand a little corrected (by myself) it's possible for a song to be an "atheist song" without mentioning god
