I think shes saying the opposite. Three figure IQs have no interest in
astrology in any case. Two figure IQ people will blindly believe all
astrology fed to them. They blindly believe without thinking about it. If
they were to question its validity and have a good long think about it,
they should come to the conclusion that its rubbish. They would have to
think to come to this conclusion, ie. do something.
