It has been suggested, that one can understand a culture's God, by understanding its music. From the 16-to the early 20th century, western man, created symphonic music that yearned for the heavens; it was mathmatically complex, yet emotionally moving. I've even read a few quotes that basically stated, God's greatest proof of existence is the music of Bach. Today, classical has shifted towards a more mechanistic and souless atonal style--perhaps coinciding with the age we live in and the God we belive in. In the east, music is very earthy, worldy even--perhaps just like their idea of God. In Africa, the music is primitive but energizing. In the middle east, the music has barely changed since Hellenistic times in terms of structure etc (arabic music is based on ancient Greek music), and their religion hasnt changed much in 1400 years either. Therefore, I am curious as to reactions on this idea. Does it have credence , or is it total nonsense?
