    Thanks, I'll check those out. I know I like Yes and Jethro Tull already.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11

    Excellent.

    I forgot -- Caravan is another favorite. And while "Hocus Pocus" is my favorite (absolutely gut-bustingly hilarious) song by Focus, most of their music is good, serious prog.

    While I can't comment on other fans, I know David Gilmour says he's really never liked progressive rock and generally identifies more with blues and art rock. Roger would say that getting hung up on genres is distracting you from what a genius he obviously is.

    I mean that science is used and believed in by the modern lay folk the same way religion is. Surely the clergy themselves and scientists themselves do different things although they have the same goals (pursuit of truth). But the people on the ground frequently use science as a political club every bit as much as folks used to use religion. For many people science is their religion. Believed in just as blindly, even when the studies are perilously skewed as in much of social science which can hardly be called a science at all, just ask Jonathan Haidt.

    More to the point religion isn't intended to deal with the verifiable or scientifically quantifiable. It deals with those things that fundamentally aren't. Just like science has no bearing and nothing to say on the spiritual.

    Don't really have any haha. I'm an Episcopalian and as such don't end up paying too much attention to papal goings on.
