physicist here, I think it's just as much "heresy" to put math and physics together (assuming we're on the same page about why). in general i'm pretty sure people just see math is used in science and go "wow, i don't understand all of it" so they just group it up with their descriptor of stuff that they're too lazy/dumb to learn about, "science."
as for >>7793620 well /sci/ in particular is a shit board what can you expect
>>7793536 The same reason why women buy snake oil in the form of cosmetics and beauty supplies whilst men are drawn to pseudoscientific snake oil such as penis enhancements, The Red Pill, social Darwinism and Crossfit.

In China it is men who are overwhelmingly into astrology.
