    Not that it matters..but I was wondring this because I've been hearing and reading from christian groups that his music is catagorized as such. I've only seen it at as folk, indie, folktronica, alternative..never christian. So I googled it..and it came back he is listed on a page of famous athiests. Does anyone know?

    Thank you ak11. All of his reference to god and heaven just seem to be I thought. I too am agnostic and can relate.

    He's an atheist, like myself. Weird that his music is classed as being Christian.
    These lyrics speak to his atheism.

    Maybe that it would do me good
    If I believed there were a god
    Out in the starry firmament
    But as it is that's just a lie
    And I'm here eating up the boredom
    On an island of cement

    I can remember reading an interview 2002 in which David was talking about his father's passing.I cannot remember it word for word but he said something along the lines of...........I would like to think i will see him again(his dad) but i don't hold any faith which would make it possible.

    I believe in the lyrics of "Imagine. " John Lennon tells us "imagine no religion".

    I am fairly certain the atheism is over played .... he is against the construct of organized religion. And with all due respect Chris, Lennon sung about it ... he was a student, however, and not a teacher.

    Jiddu is a teacher ...

    That is sad :( I hope he can find some faith to make this possible.

    I think that anyone that writes songs like David does, has "something", maybe he just doesn't know how to articulate it using terminology we find familiar.
