Astrology is Stupid

moderated - created 08/18/04
Let's not mince words: Astrology is stupid. Astrology is invalid and obsolete—a completely fictional belief system which is predicated on people's gullibility and superstitious tendencies. Astrology is noting more than an emotional panacea that is antithetical to active inquiry. There is simply no way the position of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the moment we are born somehow affects or determines our personalities, and the way our lives unfold.

Astrology is pseudoscience based on antiquated ideas. Scientific research clearly and continually confirms that astrology is a pseudo-scientific pursuit amounting to little more than wishful thinking. There has been no scientifically valid evidence to back up astrological beliefs. Furthermore, (and perhaps most importantly) not a single astrologer has contributed anything of cognitive value to any field of the social sciences.
