I Don't Believe In That Nonsense, also known So True, refers to a series of Wojak Comics memes likening pseudosciences, parasciences and actual sciences to astrology, therefore claiming they are also a pseudoscience, or otherwise disregarded them as invalid.
The origin of the format is currently unknown. On June 1st, 2020, Twitter user @ArizonaReloaded made the earliest found repost of the meme following the format. In the original meme, an exchange between Daddy's Girl and Soyjak takes place, with Soyjak stating that he does not believe in astrology, a pseudoscience, but at the same time believes in the scientific validity of the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator, reacting with the "bean mouth" smile, a typical element of the CalArts cartoon drawing style.
The repost (shown below) received over 140 retweets and comments and 590 likes in one month.
