Do skeptics of astrology feel that they are more intelligent or above those that do have an interest in it?
this isn’t a rant. I REALLY want to know if this is what they believe. Almost every answer I’ve received from a skeptic today has demonstrated a level of intellectual arrogance.
Answer by The Knowing
Yea. They should not focus on what others believe. They’re idiots for trying to control what others believe.
Answer by Marko
Probably they do feel more intelligent…
But a lot of really intelligent people believe in astrology,the problem with astrology is that a massive majority of believers dont know a thing about astrology,and their only source of astrology are magazines or websites that tell you daily horoscope for all signs,which we all know is total crap…
And there is a problem,cause when a believer that doesnt know anything about astro clashes with non believer,he or she may want to give astro a try,but he will do it the way stupid believer told him to,meaning he will read daily horoscope from magazines and websites…And ofc nothing told from there will happen and he will eventually discard astro completly and will look down on people who still believe in it.
Also a lot of people that know something about astro take it the wrong way
I have an aunt who is a total looser,and i mean total looser,she is 48 now i think,and for the past 10 years she is unemployed,no social life etc…But she is confident everything will be ok…why?cause her horoscope tells her so…
She is dumb enough to belive all she has to do is sit at home,doing nothing,and one day a knight in shining armor will come to marry her,other day a job employer will come with a job offer of her life…
She doesnt say that,but she really believes that…How retarded is that…
I belive in natal chart,which can tell you what are your advantages,what are your disadvantages,your personality,i also believe in transits.but what people dont understand,that the fate is 100% in your hands,stars can just make things easier or harder and thats it,nothing else,its always up to you,universe wont stop moving just cause of you.

Nope. Truth is desired not belief. We want a lot more evidence than you do before committing. With very little clear evidence we can admit that we are wrong. Believers can’t, no matter how much astrology fails.
Also we tend to like tests. It is easy to be self deceived and testing eliminates this. Randomness is the most alien concept to pattern seeking humans. No one has ever shown what astrology clearly does better than chance. If it can’t out perform guesses, how can you say astrology has worth. Maybe thousands years ago it did but certainly not now.
But you know me better than anyone. I want to know the results of all this supposed studying of astrology. Some claim to have invested decades in it. Great, so what are the results? Especially where astrology is wrong. If there is nothing, that is a result too. Where are the Intelligent people in the field to answer this? Why pay attention to amateurs? Don’t you any have top experts? Where are your Sagans, Dawkins, and Hawkings? Why is not one of these people willing to step up for the team and settle the matter?

Intelligence isn’t a factor. One can be highly intelligent but still highly credulous. In fact. intelligent people seem more likely to be taken in by BS. I think they are more trusting.

Should I stop reading horoscopes since I am a Christian?
I wasn’t aware of the fact that reading horoscopes is not ok until my sister told me, I want to know if in the bible it says anything about it, because I am a believer and a Christian and I dont want to keep doing whats wrong.
Please dont be rude, thank you for answering and God Bless <3

Western horoscopes are nonsense. The Vedics, however, have it down to near science… 4000 years before there was “science”. Ask your sister how one of the magi or “wisemen” managed to travel from the east and locate Christ insomuch as arriving on the exact date He was born (strolling through then India and Armenia? No…it was astrology)
Maharaj Ram, otherwise known as “Melchior” as in “Ham Elchior!” (meaning “I have seen God”) did just that.
Answer by choirmom
It would be equally effective to quit being a christian so you can read your horoscope.
