Is there room for God in science (Creationlism vs Evolution)?
As an atheist myself, I find that God is the natural and instintive way for common people to find they safety and reasurement they can't find in their minds. This happens because most people are affraid of knowing what the world is about, they are affraid of not liking the scientific answers to their questions, and also because people need the answersto the questions science is yet to answer. In my opinion, believing in a metaphysical entityto be the lord of the universe and all that in it lies is the denial of the scientific method. Science is the search for answers to all the questions, from simple things as 'is the earth round?' to more complex matters such as the origin of the universe. To allocate all solutions in a non-palpable non-measurable non-sightable entity is blinding human knowledge. So, no, science and God cannot coexist.

How do you feel while listening to music?
I live music. It's a part of me, I can't imagine myself without listening to music at least once or twice in a day. From the amazing 'classical' pieces of composers from Bach to Schoenberg, to the mind-blowing 70s british prog-rock (Pink Floyd, Yes, Camel, etc.) and things like RadioHead and Ornatos Violeta, I spend many many hours listening to music, letting it flow through me, felling things never imagined before. This is what true music is about, sending you to an outer dimension, to another universe. Listening to proper music in a darkened room, that's my definition of heaven. And if you try it, it will become yours too.
