Never pass up a chance to sit down or relieve yourself.

Neal Schon has a release out called, "So U." There is a variety of music on it, but one cut in particular really stands out to me called "Exotica." For some reason, they made a video from the tune, but the band speaks randomly throughout it. You can see that they put some video effects to the tune, but they have not released an "official" non-speaking version. I do NOT understand this!
Regardless, you can get a feel for it. And crank it up.
I did find an uncut version, although it's just one of those "fan-made" videos and doesn't have the special effects. This tune makes me imagine the never-ending saga of humanity.
If we are honest - and scientists have to be - we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality. The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination. If religion is still being taught, it is by no means because its ideas still convince us, but simply because some of us want to keep the lower classes quiet.
Public prayer is not intended to promote religious values, but to enhance the authority of some churches and some political views over others. Similarly with the posting of the Ten Commandments. It is about power, not about religion. Government by Christian or Islamic or any other faith has rarely been progressive. And the Constitution clearly intends that there should be freedom from religion.
