Bigotry? Who's the bigot here, one wonders? In fact, I'd describe Crease's attitude to astrology as highly arrogant. But like it or not, he's seeing astrology from a scientific point of view, and if any human form of thinking is arrogant, then it's science.But we must not confuse this [exploration of physical influences….] with the current socially acceptable form of bigotry that seems to entitle the human beings who believe in it to prejudge the character of others based solely on their dates of birth.”
― Robert P. Crease, The Great Equations: Breakthroughs in Science from Pythagoras to Heisenberg
Ignorance about the likes of astrology is all the more reason to keep an open mind about such things.
