According to the Times of India, the Bombay High Court has, in dismissing a case against astrology, been swayed by the arguments that astrology is science. At first I thought that this was a joke. But I suppose the joke is on the court and on India. This is what happens when people do not exercise critical thinking and fall into the trap of superstitions, pseudo science and other baloney.
I really do wonder if we give too much respect to “not offend”. If we were a bit more direct in calling bullshit “bullshit” then perhaps we wouldn’t have so much of it around.
