RE: The "miracle of the sun"
Sun is the same in a relative way, but they're dumber,
Shorter on brains and one more day wasted on bronze-age mythologies. Drinking Beverage

(When I was doing my Portuguese course in Lisbon my very wonderful teacher told me they had pilgrimages to this place, I think, where they walked (or climbed a whole bunch of steps) on their knees. And people wonder why I hate this vilest and most degrading of cancers that are the Abrahamic religions so much Censored )

You didn't look long enough. Keep looking.

Is that supposed to be sung like Pink Floyd - Time
"The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death"


Pink Floyd - Time

Lyrics
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
And shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone the song is over, thought I'd something more to say
Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
When I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.
