Astrology

We predict and forecast the future all the time. We do it with weather or in the stock market. People get very rich predicting the future price of oil or the future price of a stock based on events or past charts.

With weather they have gotten better with predicting the highs and lows of the day or the chance of rain. If you play the stock market and your right 65-70% of the time and you minimize your losses and maximize your gains, you will make good money over time.

This is Astrology. All you're doing is predicting the future based on past alignments of the planets. So if the planets aligned in a certain way and violence broke out in Asia 5-10 days after that alignment a couple of times in the past, then an Astrologer can predict that violence will break out in Asia in 5-10 days.

The problem occurs because the skeptic will give Astrology the 100% standard that's just silly. If the Astrologer isn't correct 100% of the time, then they're fake. The Astrologer isn't just guessing. They're predicting and forecasting the future based on past events. It's no different than looking at astock s past performence and saying the last 3 times the stock's chart looked like this the stock went up over 30%. This doesn't mean it's 100 percent certain the stock will go up.

So if you have 20 people that's born around the same time and there was the same alignment of planets and a high percentage of the group asre successful and own their own business or they're in management. Some of them are neat freaks and very ordered. If a person comes to the Astrologer and has the same or similar chart as the 20 people in the group, you can say the reason you're not happy with your current job is because you want to be in control. You probably think about running your own business or you think you can do a better job than your current manager. You might be a neat freak or you just like things to be in order. My suggestion would be to look into starting your own business on the side or seeing if there's a management program at your current job because you will probably be successful in these areas.

Again, the Astrologer will not be 100% correct but they're just making a future prediction based on data from past events. Here's a video of Skeptic Michael Shermer trying to debunk an Astrologer and it didn't work. The Astrologer turned out to have an accuracy rate of 77%.

  2. This could explain why me and my friends who were all born within 3 weeks of each other are all slackers who contribute little to society. WAY TO GO ASTROLOGY! Or we're just lazy people.

  12. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
