"I found most "authorities" in music know very little about the subject as they seem to think good music started with Elvis Presley or something."

No, I believe it was the Beatles. :)

"All musics of the world have rhythm, most have melodies, but only European music has harmony......it was the Catholic church who
came up with the concept....."

I've never heard this before (and I must say I'm skeptical), but if true, I believe I've found at least one thing I like about Catholicism. I'll do a little research when I get the chance. Are you sure that African music doesn't have harmony?
