Until we got science and reason we believed all sorts of crazy shit. Still do.

Unfortunately, since science has been compromised, we not only have people believing "all sorts of crazy shit," we have people believing all sorts of crazy shit to which credence has been lent by science. The former is relatively easy to identify and debunk. Anyone with a functioning brain knows that astrology is bogus. The latter, however, has an aura of science about it that is protective. Hard to get through to anyone that dietary cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease. The myths that are promulgated by scientists die harder than those promulgated by Aunt Tillie or some geezer with a funny eye and a snake or even a pastor wielding fire and brimstone.
