    Which pretty much makes us ALL agnostics. And is, in fact, the only logical position for humans. So, there are us agnostic atheists who don't know but remain unconvinced of any deity, and agnostic theists who don't know but believe in one (or more). What a fascinating conversation. And props to qwerty - well formulated posts, IMO. They reflect my thinking but are worded better than I would have done!

    But on the bright side, if you're gigging in a place with a mosquito problem, the tuner doubles as an insect repellent!

    I agree on this -- it's one of the main reasons I believe what I do now. For me, the provable truth is my top priority, and I stop forming beliefs when there is no more evidence. But in some religious and spiritual people, I've encountered what I *think* is indeed 'choosing' to believe, or at least that's how it appears to me. Maybe I just misunderstand what they mean, and the idea of faith probably varies a lot from one person to the next. I have a couple religious friends who can happily entertain all my ideas, but in the end they still believe in their faith because of the fulfillment & peace it brings them. And I know that some of them have doubts occasionally but they strive to not give those doubts power, for the same reason. In other words, it seems their approach is starting with a recognition that faith provides something positive and meaningful in their life, so they choose to find ways to support it and maintain it as a goal in itself. If life is so vague, undefined, and short, who am I to judge where people place their priorities, so long as they're providing a benefit to them and harming nobody else? (To be clear, I absolutely have a problem with some flavors of religion which try to impose their beliefs on others in an authoritarian and oppressive way. But there's a lot of spiritual folks out there who are not like that and don't deserve to be lumped into the same group.) Maybe @rzumwalt could give us some better insight into this. I don't want to assume or put any words into his mouth, but I'm curious if his beliefs come easily/freely from a place of genuine conviction, or if his faith is something he feels requires work but is a cause worthy of the effort for the benefit it provides.

    Don't get your hopes up. I heard through the grapevine that the tuner is modeled after a tuning fork that is only able to go as low as a dog whistle.
  7. Nice....I ordered all the pedals yesterday they arrived where I had them sent today. I just need to set them up on a template to find out what size I really need for a pedalboard. I'm still leaning towards the TrailerTrash Pro Series.
  8. New G10 unit, just opened it today. I can't seem to get it to charge fully. I've tried charging it in both the G10 base unit and my (also new) Yamaha THR10IIWL. I tried updating the firmware. There was no update on the base unit but the transmitter updated to 1.04. No apparent difference. I read all the manuals to see if I was missing something. It looks like it's charging for a little while but stops, then I get less than 30 minutes use out of it before it dies. Am I doing something wrong?
  9. I have this in front of my chair, mixer and Mac and can control it while recording tracks- Love my Helix and Kemper!

    Does the dog have a tuner in his editor?
  11. Thats a great idea and would be useful. I think it would require a re-write of code for HX Edit and/or Stomp ... not a trivial task.

    I've seen dog......but then, I consumed A LOT of psychotropics back in the '60s, so I'm not convinced......of anything......and I didn't sleep much last night.....GET OUT OF MY HEAD!
  13. I have heard the same about "wear" (It's pretty plausible, too), but the old hippie in me won't let me get away with leaving any electronics on all day. And yes, I'm actually serious.
  14. Just to add this: The LTs stomp mode only allows for 8 stomps whereas the Floor allows for 10. I think you're losing the leftmost ones of each row, so in case you're using 10 stomp mode a lot (as I do), make sure you assign something not too relevant there.

    And then there's the dyslexic agnostic insomniac who stayed up all night wondering if there really is a dog.

    Agnostic is a statement of knowledge. Atheism is a statement of beliefs. I am an agnostic atheist. I do not know if god(s) exists, however, I am not convinced of it. If I were a (gnostic theist) I would be claiming that I know there is a god. As opposed to just a theist - believing in it. (being convinced)

    How Agnostic Differs From Atheist Noun Many people are interested in distinguishing between the words agnostic and atheist. The difference is quite simple: atheist refers to someone who does not believe in the existence of a god or any gods, and agnostic refers to someone who doesn’t know whether there is a god, or even if such a thing is knowable.
  18. How are you connected to the Variax Standard? It works best if you use the Line 6 interface supplied with the guitar, Jd
  19. I have not personally used my HX Stomp for gigging - it was intended as my backup and portable rig for rehearsals. However, the band has decided to go ampless the last few gigs to try to get better control of our stage volume and reduce our footprint. Just when I just got my Powercab 212 too! Anyway, the other guitar player in the band, and our bass player are both using HX Stomp the last three gigs. Its working great. I'd suggest not worrying too much about a lot of patch switching with HX Stomp. Keep things minimal. I created a patch for him that has three stop switches: distortion, phaser, chorus, delay and reverb are on all the time. This is all he needs for 95% of the songs. And it keeps it simple enough that the HX Stomp doesn't become a distraction.

    I don't think it so easy as anyone chooses their beliefs. To "choose" a belief would be insincere would it not? As you are either convinced, or you are not. You believe, or don't. I don't just mean in matters of god(s)/religions either. How can one sincerely choose to be convinced of something? If you are choosing to be convinced of something then it is kinda apparent that the priority of it being true is significantly diminished. Hints the detriment to its sincerity. I get that when people say things like "I don't believe in abortion" what they are really saying is they don't support it. Supporting something, and believing in it are two separate things, often convoluted. (I was using that as an example, not to move the discussion to abortion at all)

    Agreed. It's what you *do* that matters.The underpinning is less important than the result. Golden Rule rulez, amen.

    Thanks :) But I also want to emphasize I don't see one as superior over the others. (I used to, but I realized it made me a bit of a d*** so I reassessed those beliefs and changed my attitude.) Depending on a person's values and priorities, choosing a leap of faith might make a lot more sense than stopping where logic can go no further. I think in some ways, the human psyche thrives with spiritual beliefs and the positive outlook they can create. So, IMO, there's a strong argument for choosing to believe in something if it improves your life, even if you can't prove it to be true. If your goal is just to have the most fulfilling and happiest life, that could be the most practical choice for many people.

    Aye. No problem. Glad I could help.

    Ah, interesting, I wasn't aware of that difference (atheism vs anti-theism). Thanks for clarifying that.

    BTW. Agnostic is not the middle ground between atheism, and theism. Atheism is a lack of belief in a god. IE not convinced one exists. Anti-theism is the assertion that there is no god. Agnostic is a statement of knowledge. Atheism is a statement of beliefs. I am an Agnostic Atheist.

    If Nihilism, especially existential Nihilism, isn't an option... Then it isn't my choice. Perhaps L6 can finally get it right with 3.00. :)
