    I goggled it,it was Blind Faith, around 1969, I guess there was two many stars associated with this band, which means high maintence and artistic differences, I can't recall any songs that this band played as orginals to this band, outside of steve playing with the spencer davis group and his subsquent solo career, I don't remember much about steve in his early days, now ginger baker and clapton ,now that was something else, they were catagaorized as rock bands but they played a mean blues set!

    I've listened to Eric clapton play this as solo as well as Steve Winwood, and I had forgotton that they played this song together as a band, thanks for reminding me, I'll guess I'll have to dig out my ten years after LP and I hope I don't have a flashback to 1969. Oh, wait ,the statute of limitations has run out on those things.

    There was a sixties band that had the name of what you just described. Care to guess the name of the band?

    Clue, Winwood, Clapton and Baker
    Sorry to say also Hitler and other despicable people end up the same as anyone; dead is dead they are also only worm feed like anyone. Sorry there is no punishment after death also for these people, unless you can scientifically prove such.

    As I said before , me believing in a hereafter gives me peace and having the knowledge that those despicable people that were mentioned would receive some type of damnation for what they did here on this plane makes me particularly happy, also I can't scientificly prove that there is a hereafter only that I believe that there is,and if that whats preventing me from taking out certain types of human scum,than its a good thing.

    All them post and I still have not heard about old T-rex and Noah. That's how it always is with religion, a bunch of personal opinions lacking fact. All religions were created by man. T-rex was created by nature, and there is plenty of proof that he was here, without man testifying that he was.

    " Boone" I wrote in many of my "threads" exactly what you wrote; indeed it is a human created art; I'm still surprised especially in the US that so many people get super fanatic and keep sticking their heads in the sand. Humans are the only species as far as I know who learned to write. So I'm convinced that on Mars they do not have bibles.

    I think the religious got hit with two whammies that they never recovered from. Dinosaurs being found and Darwin releasing his book occurred around the same time.

    Scientists have been trying to verify the various theories for years and so far have proven them all wrong. For myself. I believe the Creation account. Things are just to finely balanced to have been a matter of chance. Take the air, for instance. At atom off on either side of the mix and we would be dead.
    I had a man insist that we are descended from apes. He grabbed my hand and said, "See this line in your palm. That is the simian crease all apes have it and so do we." I told him, "Man might be descended from apes. But woman was created by God."

    Scientists have been trying for decades to verify the 'Theory' of evolution. It is a 'theory' because it is an 'unproven' idea. The so-called piltdown man is a proven fraud. Analysis of the bones proved the skull was that of a modern man and the lower jaw of an orangutan. The man who perpetrated the fraud was discovered with other doctored bones. His reason was he wanted to ruin his superior who had not given him the acclaim and monies he felt were due him. But when evolution was put forth and widely accepted he decided to live with the lie. Many of the so-called fossil records have been proven to be composites of two or more animals, and in some cases, cement. One scientist who has tried to verify evolution has stated for the record, "Rather than accept the fantastically small probability of life having arisen through blind forces of nature. It seemed better to suppose that the origin of life was a deliberate intellectual act."
    Consider this subject with an open mind. The book Belief in God and Intellectual Honesty notes that one who possesses "intellectual honesty" is characterized by a "readiness to scrutinize what one believes to be true" and "to pay sufficient attention to other evidence available." A senior writer for Scientific American concluded: "The more clearly we can see the universe in all its glorious detail, the more difficult it will be for us to explain with a simple theory how it came to be that way." What do you think, accident or design?
    The book Our Universe:Accident or Design states, "Our earth is just the right size for our existence. If earth were slightly larger, its gravity would be stronger and hydrogen, a light gas, would collect, being unable to escape the earth's gravity. Thus, the atmosphere would be inhospitable to life. On the other hand, if our earth were slightly smaller, life-sustaining oxygen would escape and surface water would evaporate. In either case, we could not live...
    If the ratio of the Earth's radius and distance from the Sun were slightly different from what it is observed to be: if the earth had been situated only 5% closer to the sun, a runaway greenhouse effect would have occurred about 4 000 million years ago. If, on the other hand, the earth were placed only 1% further from the sun, runaway glaciation (huge sheets of ice covering much of the globe) would have occurred some 2 000 million years ago." The earth rotates on its axis once a day, the right speed to produce moderate temperatures, makes life possible and comfortable. What do you think, accident, or design?
    I had a doctor tell me that man was descended from apes, he took my hand, turned the palm up and said, "See this crease? That is the simian crease, proof we are descended from the ape." I told him: 'Man might be descended from apes, but woman was created by God.' He dropped my hand, grabbed my chart and got down to business. I believed in evolution when I was in school, it was taught as a fact in school, until I chanced on an article about scientific fraud - the piltdown man. I investigated further and realized that evolution was an unproven theory then, and in the 60's and down to this day. So far all efforts of science has disproven the theory of evolution.
