Baby belief

My rigorous true-atheist friend asks whether I think Vivaldi would not have written sublime music if he didn’t believe in the sublime.

I think he would have written sublime music, but not that music. I believe Vivaldi and Brahms and Mozart and all the others composed sacred choral music to pay homage to their conception of God.

She says (non-orthogonalicity notwithstanding), “Why not show a photo of a baby as a reason to be an agnostic rather than an atheist?”

They did, and do, seem like miracles.
