Or..you may have to copy and paste into your browser. It's a short film clip from CNN of a child artist. It's soooo worth your time to watch.

Please watch this and give us your thoughts. I am in awe.

It works for me when I copy and paste it into my browser. I wish it would work for you guys. Dang!

It shows a little nine year old girl that at the age of four that began to tell her Atheist Mother about 'trips' she'd take to heaven. She started drawing and then actually painting! As she grew older, the paintings became more detailed and you wouldn't believe how vivid they are!!! It's amazing!!!!

Not only that, but a few months ago, she decided she wanted to play piano, and now she's composing her own music. Maybe you can find it via search engine or something? Using the key words of CNN and child artist or something of that nature... I dunno. As I said, it was sent to me in email and I just copied and pasted the link here.

I'm gonna try to post the URL here. Try it and see if it works for ya.... I hope it does!!!

Akiane is one of the most gifted and amazing artists I have ever had the pleasure to view her work. She started sketching faces when she was just four years old, even then, they had detail and were far different from normal four year olds. Hopefully the link below will take you all to her official site.

Edit: Also, she is a very gifted poet. Check out the poem on her site http://www.artakiane.com/akiane_poetry.htm She is a very gifted girl! :wub:

I wonder if she'd be getting the same amount of attention if at 4 she began lecturing her Fundie Christian mother on the fine points of aetheism?

I think we all know that answer to that :D

Still she is so talanted that there is no way she would not be famous religious or not.

I dunno..... what I wonder is how does a four year old even know that much about "heaven" regardless if her Mother is atheist? Thing is, this little girl is truly gifted. It facinates me to see any child with a born talent for any art be it in music, painting, writing, whatever. Some call it genius. Some call it magical. I call it spiritual because that is the only word that feels right to me.

Thank all of you for these extra links! I love getting to see more of her work. The link that Lotus Flower put here is really something. When you click on her paintings, some of them have a little something quoted about them by this little girl. Her thoughts and expressions are just as captivating as her art is. Remarkable...simply remarkable.

She is absolutely remarkable. I have a bachelor's degree in Painting (yeah, I wasn't very practical when I was younger), and I couldn't do half of what she does. I am amazed. Thanks for sharing!

To master form and expression at that age is beyond genius. So this is what they mean by all that "Indigo" stuff.

Indigo, Maybe so!! I wouldnt be suprised at all if she had a near death experience somewhere in her first year of life or so...

Her art is absolutely breathtaking.

I think I'm going to see about getting one of her books to read. Hopefully it will tell more about how she first began to relate her experiences. I'm wondering if she had a near death experience, or....if she "remembered" perhaps from where she came from. I know that for me personally, my first memory is wondering how I got into such a small little body. Even though I'm much older now, that first memory is still just as vivid today.

Super talented kids make me so mad. I'm 17 and I'm not even that good, and I've been practicing for 4 years. Anywho, she's an absolute genius. Definately God-given talent. A real slap in the face to all the athiests out there.

The horse that she has drawn.

It was a beautiful horse.

a prodigy is right - we need to find out how they tick and why. we need more of them.

as for seeing god - we see god as we understand god. her mother may have been an athiest , but our society isn't. and of course the dominating religion is christianity ( and a erroneous white jesus).

it seems , in other countries, and with children who have NDE - they tend to see the god of thier understanding.

hence this doesn't mean what she sees is right for all. if she had been a buddist she would have seen budda.

I think she is indeed very talented, however I don't think it's a "gift from god". Heck, we could go about saying the same stuff about Mozart but we choose to call him a "child prodigy" instead.

I seriously doubt God has anything to do with it, and as the others have pointed out i doubt she'd be getting as much attention if she were an atheist

Yeah, attributing this talent to god is not giving this girl enough credit. She's a pretty damn fine painter.

I disagree, She was 4 years old when she was receiving this insight from God. Her mother was an atheist so there was no Christian influence over her. So why did she pick the Christian God and not Buddha? Her mother definitely wasn't influencing her, and 4 is a really young age to comprehend that, even if her mother was a believer.
