Astrology and the rejection of truth

In case you didn't see Julie Beck's article in The Atlantic"Why Are Millenials So Into Astrology?," here are a couple high—or low—points:

"'I think it’s become generally less acceptable to just arbitrarily s**t on things as like "that’s not rational," or "that’s stupid because that’s not fact,"' says Nicole Leffel, a 28-year-old software engineer who lives in New York."

"Stevens’s story exemplifies a prevailing attitude among many of the people I talked to—that it doesn’t matter if astrology is real; it matters if it’s useful."

I'd encourage you to read the whole thing, then weep for those who willfully reject the truth. What a mess.
