A bit of a rant

Good points, Mr. Z. I used the term "whacked out" to describe those otherwise brilliant people who currently embrace fundamentalist religious views, thus denying the body of scientific discovery. If such people exist today, it would be very easy to understand how anyone, regardless of intellect, could embrace religion a few centuries ago when there was a comparative dearth of scientific explanations for floods, drought, disease, etc. The truth, as far as I know, is that we really don't know what inspired many of the great composers. They could have been genuinely devout, closet atheistic, or anything in between.

My bad for not making that clear the first time.
