Oh that Astrology.. Ology? Why I dare say not!. Astrology is not a science folks, but what's not surprising with the rise of ignorance in America is how many Americans actually think Astrology is a science:
The bad news is that more and more are believing it is. And on this disturbing note, I leave you with the link video's description:
Astrology: Is it Scientific?:
http://undsci.berkeley.edu/article/astrology_checklist "In some ways, astrology may seem scientific. It uses scientific knowledge about heavenly bodies, as well as scientific sounding tools, like star charts."'
James Randi on Astrology: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Dp2Zqk8vHw
Why Astrology is a Pseudoscience:http://cogsci.uwaterloo.ca/Articles/astrology.pdf"Most philosophers and historians of science agree that astrology is a pseudoscience, but there is little agreement on why it is a pseudoscience."
The Scientific Case against Astrology:http://www.openthemagazine.com/article/living/the-scientific-case-against-astrology"Extensive tests, including one by India's most famous astrophysicist, confirm that astrology is a hoax."
Astrology: Why Your Zodiac Sign and Horoscope Is Wrong:http://www.livescience.com/4667-astrological-sign.html"It's a great conversation starter: "What's your sign?" But before you ask or answer that question, consider this: Your zodiac sign corresponds to the position of the sun relative to constellations as they appeared more 2,200 years ago!"
Majority of Young Adults Think Astrology is a Science:http://www.upi.com/Science_News/2014/02/11/Majority-of-young-adults-think-astrology-is-a-science/5201392135954/"Science may have looked victorious in the recent debate between Bill Nye 'The Science Guy' and young-Earth creationist Ken Ham, but a new study suggests Americans have a pretty loose interpretation of what actually constitutes 'science.'"
So the next time someone asks you "What's your horoscope is", you can say ; "Why it's the same as yours!" ;).
