Discuss: Why do “Educated” Indians Believe in Astrology?

March 6, 2011 5 comments

Have you ever wondered why “educated” Indians, even those who work in STEM fields, have such a strong belief in astrology, numerology and other assorted superstitious bullshit? Why would any person with a half-decent ability to understand science and reason be so dependent on such superstitious bullshit?

Note: I am not referring to a casual or even passing interest in such bullshit. It is the very deep interest and belief in such bullshit amongst educated Indians which I find odd.

I cannot resist pointing out that belief in such superstitious bullshit is far more common amongst women in most cultures. In a way, the widespread Indian belief in such crap only validates my view on most Indian men being effeminate or totally pussy-whipped.
