Lol, I guess I should have my head checked for tying religion into this discussion. But I wasn't so much talking about the belief in God as I was talking about the accounts people give about feeling God enter their lives when they open their heart to Jesus and what not. I've heard people explain it almost like a heroin hit entering the blood stream, filtering throughout their entire body, taking every worry away, and feeling the spirit of God enter their body. There is no scientific data that can prove Jesus has entered your body, yet millions of followers will swear they've felt his presence.

My analogy was that to me this seems similar to those who hook up a McIntosh amplifier to their speakers and then swear they can hear differences in the music. Differences that can't be measured by a microphone, differences that scientific data shows does not exist, but they will swear by it anyway.

Now whether or not THE Jesus Christ who was born over 2000 years ago and walked this earth was the son of God or not is a subject I'm not about to attempt to discuss here. And indeed wouldn't have anything to do with this thread in any way shape or form. It was the similarity of those that have some sense of something that science can not seem to measure that I was referring to, not religion as a whole.

well I think the ponit was lost, there is no question about price ponits and just buying a name Bryston, Mcintosh are great if you have a speaker that needs that push but they cost a lot are they worth it? I don't think all electronics are created equal, there are things that my Integra receiver does better than my Rotel processor and vice versa as far as power 90 watts 120 watts not much difference on axiom speakres the difference is the control unit Integra/Rotel as far as one playing louder no, movies or music no. Now my ATC SCM 40's the Rotel did not push them it clipped the Rotel. I went with a MMC-5 @ 220 watts per channel and now the ATC's sing and no clipping and the sound yeah way better, so yes there is a place and a need for seperate power supply. Not all speakers are created equal either, that is what makes the Axioms great you don't need a lot of power to make them roll as far as the war on Receiver or Seperates I think it depends on what makes you happy I enjoy both besides it all about the sound and the enjoyment of music not the equipment, this hobby is as addicting as hookers and blow there is always better out there so enjoy.

Interesting, I don't see how this topic even remotely compares to believing in God, no matter how you slice it. Fact, Jesus did exist, study your history a little. You don't even have to use the Bible to prove that.

Amen!

Of course any reference to a belief in the Creator of the universe and you are cautioned you are talking about Worms.

Thanks KCarlie.

2x5, you have no knowledge whatsoever of my religious beliefs, practices, or inclinations, and I'll thank you not to make any assumptions about them.

Also, I'll damn well post what I like, when I like. Feel free to set me to ignore if you don't like my posts.

Well my intentions were innocent enough. I mean it's not like I put up a poll asking everyone to vote on whether they believe Jesus was black, white or somewhere inbetween?


That's the sort of post that opens up a can of those worms off of 'Dune'!
