    I think because it is posted as an attachment. If you direct link it, then it should work--I think. Yes in fact it does work. Here it is as a direct link:

    This agnostic thinks the answer is yes.
    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious. And I am a very ingenious fellow

    Agnostic hymns:

    What a Friend We Have In Jesus, I'm Pretty Sure

    Love Lifted Me...Or Maybe It Was The Wind

    At The Cross...I'm Not Sure Which One

    In Christ There Is No East Or West, Or North Or South For That Matter

    Just As I Am...Yeah, That's The Ticket!
    "The way out is through the door. Why is it that no one will use this method?"
    -Confucious

    "In Spring! In the creation of art it must be as it is in Spring!" -Arnold Schoenberg

    "We only become what we are by the radical and deep-seated refusal of that which others have made us." -Jean-Paul Sartre

    "I don't mind dying, as long as I can still breathe." ---Me

    One's spiritual or religious inclinations have been expressed in music for hundreds of years and there's no reason why they cannot go together, usually to inspire a deeper sense of spiritual awareness within individuals no matter what their beliefs. Such composers usually feel that human beings are more than just their mortal bodies. But there is also something called secular music where music and religion do not have to be associated, though Bach even thanked the glory to God for his secular works as well. I'm glad he did because he never exactly felt that there wasn't a source of creative power in the universe bigger than himself. He kept his eye on what he believed was the larger picture and this was often expressed in his religious, Luther inspired music.

    Bach did what every believer should do in living life - whether as composer, teacher or factory worker - to the glory of God.

    Will Satanic music be forgiven its ornery stupidity ? by a song of grace and wisdom , and may the music have a drum in it

    In the beginning , says the Norwegian history of music book , was the horn . The drum had been banished , as had never been - though quietly , secretly it lived in the far north where also lived the Sami who and all their ways had been banished , and once there , the drum became small for so were the trees also .
