Liberals think that astrology is scientific: Liberals enjoy a nice laugh at the anti-science of religious fundamentalists, but the 2006 General Social Survey shows us that they, more than anyone, believe that astrology is scientific. Here is the percentage breakdown:
Percent who believe astrology is very or sort of scientific
Extremely liberal 43.3
Slightly liberal 31.4
Slightly conservative 25.9
Extremely conservative 25.0
Almost half of those who are very liberal believe astrology is good science. So why do we believe what they tell us about anything?
Next, what are the IQ differences?
Mean IQ by view on astrology
It's very scientific 90.1
It's sort of scientific 96.5
It's not scientific at all 101.2
These differences are large. If you're like me, you've heard endless jokes about the Bible-thumping, inbreeding, redneck Bush supporters, but how about those moonbeam Obama Mamas?
