Yes, she'd corrected the document. Third time lucky, though.
Astrology: More like Religion Than Science | Skeptical Inquirer
Nik, that's bizarre, what on earth is wrong with their spell-checkers? Man, I can only imagine how frustrating that must have been for you! Not a supporter of astrology, but to say that it hasn't been supported by studies is wrong. Those studies that showed support may have been due to bad methodology or chance correlations, but there have been some. Another contributor to the popular belief in some scientific support for astrology may be the astronomical habit of continuing to refer to the imaginary constellations, particularly the zodiacal signs, rather than using coordinates.
Also, there really are some slight differences in personalities according to birth time-of-year. School year cutoffs affect whether one is six months ahead or six months behind the average age in beginning school, which affects sports aptitude.

I have heard there are slight variations in schizophrenia prevalence by birth month as well, perhaps due to low marternal vitamin D. Jul 06, So you believe in astrology, why am I not surprised? I must admit, the fact that idiots like you exist, has forced me to rethink the absurd and unthinkable. So zephyr are you a libra or a Sagittarius? Or a cancer maybe? Yeah that's it And if you had been born s of years ago when asstrology was invented would you have been influenced by the same forces as you were when you were born recently?
No, because precession has moved those constellations and reoriented those forces. If there are indeed forces within the solar system at work affecting our mood they have nothing to do with asstrology whose concepts and definitions do not change with the precession. It is similar to the difference between deism and theism. There may well be a deist god out there somewhere but it has nothing to do with the god of circumcisions and pork-shunners and rabbit cuds and missionary positions.
THAT god doesn't exist. Similarly, the discipline based on the influence of stars and planets which are not where they are supposed to be, is a sham. But so is chiropracty and look how successful that is. I don't understand, what did you actually want to tell here. Okay so far? They use formulae devised s of years ago. But asstrologers continue to use them anyway. This means that the signs have slipped one-tenth—or almost one whole month You will most likely find that once precession is taken into account, your zodiac sign is different.
And if you were born between November 29 and December 17, your sign is actually one you never saw in the newspaper. So I'm afraid, you're completely confused with historical matter here - and all people who upvoted you are apparently confused as well. I don't think so, ortero. Ghost is on the mark. The Judeo-Christian religion is an 'astrotheological literary hybrid'. It's hijacked Egyptian astrology from over years ago. If the new age Aquarius doesn't get here sooner, these insane religious wars, where all sides are financed by same the global central banks, are liable to be the end of us.
Zephyr is also an astrologist. Funny, but not surprising. For example, the vedian ganita considers the geometry of planets only and such a predictions could have some physical meaning. The astrology based on location of stars seems nonsensical for me. Where you at Socratic-Skippy? Cher you starting to sound like you have been hanging out at the thunder-gods-mythology-plasma-space-magnet-creations site in your spare time.
You are getting more weird all the time. You aren't going to be joining up with Nazis too are you?

If you do I will have to let you go podna. Can't prove it yet but I think it's a matter of entropy. The most predacious species on the planet or in the 'biosphere' makes a nonlinear evolutionary transition from the lower "animalistic intelligence" to the higher or more potent "abstract intelligence".
Jul 07, Ummm, I think you need to work on you facts. Clarke "The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable. Interesting to note that the current 'year of the world' 'Anno Mundi' in Latin using the Hebrew calendar is AM "9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
The state-sponsored religions are the result of directed evolution - keeping what works and discarding what doesn't. Intelligent design. People dealt with the natural elements every day and sought to influence them. Of course they would want new religions to offer the same benefits as the old. Sun worship, as zeitgeist noted, was the first religion. The cross is the zodiac. More evidence that these religions are all brilliant fabrications. Captain Stumpy. Jul 08, Don't worry Captain Stupid, I have no intention of asking you to watch my kid. Jul 09, Captain, you might want to read what your commenting about otherwise you end up looking like a stalker troll without a clue, cause you just choked the chicken on that one hehehe The ancients were very proficient with their astronomy and astrology.

I 1starred you above because you used a pseudoscience link as proof, not because you were incorrect.

Everything else is built on theory…. Who is the science community to act all pretentious about why astrology has no value because they say so? A scientist is a human; therefore, they have full capacity of being wrong and being adept to groupthink. Everyone is going to get so defensive about me writing this.
Remember that is the entire point of me writing this is because people are clinging to a misconstrued interpretation of astrology passed generation to generation without even critically thinking about how ignorant it is to not consider it a science. Therefore making it science.
