Hey Millennials, Get Thee To A Nunnery… Or A Yoga Studio… Or Something…

Here’s another example of contrived age-based segments (millennials, Gen Y, Gen Z, etc.) making “experts” look absurd

Behold, The Millennial Nuns:
More And More Young Women Are Being Called To The Religious Life,
After 50 Straight Years Of Decline.
What On Earth Is Going On?

What’s so silly about that? Well, the exact same week that nonsense came out, the L.A. Times reported that “millennials” have “replaced religion with astrology and crystals.” So, wait, is it nuns or crystals or nuns with crystals or crystallized nuns…?

Apparently, studies of “millennials” are based on little more than a wing and a prayer.
