But did they determine what percentage of the 44% thought astrology was astronomy?

If you actually look at the linked report, there is very little evidence for this being a new age, a special finding, or a rising movement compared the all the data collected since 1979.

Hi David! I am the author of Magic for the Resistance: Rituals and Spells for Change, and would love to engage with a bit more nuance on this topic. You are spot-on in some respects, but miss some important aspects of what we call .

Astrology, witchcraft, and magic are easy to ridicule (as can be seen in the comments here). But they have been part of human culture for millennia, and have been subject to renewed interest among academics. I’d love to provide a respectful response.

Did the question first define "astrology"? I've run into more than one person who didn't know the difference between astronomy and astrology. Seriously.

I've always been fascinated by people who believe that one's destiny is influenced by the day their parents decided to have sex.
