a litmus test.
"Over my head, I hear music in the air; over my head, I hear music in the air; over my head, I hear music in the air; there must be a God somewhere"
This is a stanza from an African American slave spiritual. I had told someone else here that our typical atheist would have a hard to understanding it. And the reason for this difficulty is not because they are atheist, but rather the questions that go behind this sort of song, are foreign to their own limited lives.
So what does it mean for the slave to hear music over his head? And why does he infer from hearing music, that there must be a God? How do the two correlate?
