Old quacks, new quacks

Remember the old days when people believed a person could read your palm and tell you about your future health. Remember when phrenology, making measurements of the skull, was used to predict certain personality traits. Scientists and other educated people said it was quackery. 

Now "educated" research scientists are saying that a crease in the ear lobe, receding hairlines, length of the fingers, fat in the eyelids, etc. indicate a higher risk for certain diseases.

Next researchers will be telling us that astrology is real.
