    A really nice movie on Satan and Adam. The met in harlem. The question becomes why is Satan a black person and Adam a white person? Satan claims Blues is the greatest since the sky isnt called jazz. I think he has a point there.



    Edited: I went back to see my original post it in fact belongs exactly in the theogical concepts section. No slight of hand trick and i asked extremely relevant questions.

    Now i know this forum is not really a theology forum really. More a wanna be i suppose, But none the less, it belongs right here in pretend theology world.its not exactly filled with Ditriech bonhoeffers, or Thomas Mertons.

    I finally figured out what direction I should go, when I studied the revelations of the Baha'i faith
    I kind of want my innocence back.

    I really dont get the point as, as the saying goes, you have to know the blues to play the blues, and if all you know are blue skies you dont know the blues. But, if there is some sort of musical connatation behind it all, it would make sense that Satan is black since blues and jazz both started in the black communities, didn't spread very far outside of there (not in the way other genres of music started by black-Americans would spread, with blyes having more of an unacknowledged spreading), and Robert Johnson, a black blues artist, is said to be where the saying of selling your soul at the crossroads originates from.
    Other than that really big if it all seems silly.

    Because that is what Sterling Magee calls himself. It has nothing to do with theology.

    At the end of the day stirling points out it was considered the devil music and he was raised with that. So he just wears the suit, since its only clothing and performs.

    Why do you have a Netflix documentary about a blues band in the "Theological Concepts" section of this board when it is obvious to all but apparently you that this documentary as little to nothing to do with the Biblical Satan or Adam? I am very curious.

    Rated 7.2 on IMDB:
    SATAN & ADAM chronicles the unlikely pairing of legendary one-man-band Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee and harmonica master Adam Gussow. Shot over 20 years, the film showcases one of the greatest blues duos you probably never got a chance to see. Magee and Gussow came together on the streets of Harlem in the 1980s, a time when race relations in New York City were at an all-time low. From completely different worlds, these two musicians forged a lifelong relationship that showcases the unifying power of music.

    I can't say that it surprises me that you have a degree in theology.

    I have a Masters in Postmodern Pre-Lady Gaga Lacanian Appalachian Music Theory. Sure you have a degree in theology. Let's see it. You can't even distinguish between a blues band and Biblical characters

    Pointless? It was exactly on target providing supplemental information on the movie you mentioned. The fact you are spring loaded to play an immature game of "Gotcha!" is not my ****ing problem. Obviously your OP is the pointless post since you've just proved you don't want to discuss the movie but want to play games with Christians.

    Lemme guess, you're a 20something atheist. Am I close?
