Faith in Astrology

January 22, 2002

Re Tim Jones' Jan. 16 letter on astrology: I suspect that Jones is one of the many who never studied astrology and takes it to be solely the pop astrology as posed in daily columns. Even J.P. Morgan had his own personal astrologer, Evangeline Adams. Maybe that is why he was so wealthy.

Why the scientific types are always batting astrology I cannot figure out--when organized religion has more ridiculous myths, such as the virgin birth, that billions are taught to believe. In addition, certain religious "righters" try to block the more liberal thinkers from access to abortion and research using fetal tissue simply because they have medieval ideas. Why pick on astrology, which is relatively harmless?
