    If you believe a million dollars will appear in your bank account magically, you are not demonstrating faith -- only stupidity.

    When you post an opinion that is patently false in the public domain, is that faith or stupidity, hmmmm?

    The guy that believes in an invisible man that lives in the sky is the father of another man who came back to life three days after being killed calls me stupid...I'm somehow not angered by the opinion of such a person. I'm actually sitting back laughing at the thought.

    What is truly amazing is that you still don't get how asinine your opinion is.

    Currency is a measure of exchange value. Granted that currency could 'magically' appear in bank accounts, what do you suppose that would do to your currency's exchange value, hmmm?

    If a million dollars magically appeared in your bank account, you couldn't pay me a gazillion dollars just to listen to your idiotic nonsense.

    Duh?

    So, what makes you think your lies about the bible has any worth in this forum, hmmmm?

    I take that back. Your lies do have some value -- to someone stupid enough to believe it.

    I golfed with a pastor of the Assembly of God church in Springfield, MO at a Branson golf course. I knew something of the church since they do speak in tongues. I asked him if he spoke in tongues. His very serious reply was "no, I do not have the gift yet". I said nothing and kept golfing. That is my sum total experience with these folks. The video of the little kid speaking in tongues makes me sad. That kid has likely been indoctrinated since birth in religion and is showing off to adults and her parents.

    If a white churchgoer does that, it's nonsense. If a black singer does that, itís considered an art form.

    In vocal jazz, scat singing is vocal improvisation with wordless vocables, nonsense syllables or without words at all. In scat singing, the singer improvises melodies and rhythms using the voice as an instrument rather than a speaking medium.

    Nobody "translates" a scat singer's vocalisations into messages from God. The other half of the "tongues" phenomenon.

    On the other hand, given that black music is often called "soul music" and many popular black singers got their first start as Gospel singers, one cannot entirely discount the possibility that there may be a spiritual component to scat singing.

    But nobody ever claimed it was an actual godly "language"
