Why Astrology Isnt Real Science
Hey baby what's your sign SCIENCE. GET OUT OF MY VIDEO TRACE. Hey everyone, Laci Green here for DNews. Astrology is based on the premise that celestial bodies like the sun, the moon, planets, and constellations have an effect on what happens on earth, who you are as a person, and how people behave based on when they were born. Not to be confused with ASTRONOMY, which is the study of those celestial bodies themselves their properties and placement and such. Now I have a lot of friends, and my adorable little sister particularly, who are REALLY.
INTO ASTROLOGY. It's how they start their day and the foundation for their relationships with other people, the foundation for understanding themselves. As much as I love them, the scientist within me is cringing. Nah man, naaahhhhhh. Why does astrology make scientists cringe I mean, it seems scientific enough what with all the tracking of planetary movements, star charts, and complicated formulas. But astrology isn't an actual science because.wellll 1 It's not based on evidence, 2 it's conclusions aren't testable, 3 it isn't open to review by other scientists and.my favorite, number.
4 it's un.fals.ifiable. Astrology can't be proven wrong.and that's the heart of what science is. The assertions of astrology are so general and open to interpretation that we can always find a way to see it in a factual light. We saw this effect in James Randi's famous Astrology Test. Participants were given specific horoscopes based on when and where they were born. After reading, they ALL rated their horoscope as very or extremely accurate. Then, they were passed their neighbor's horoscopeand learned that they all had the same exact one.
Other scientists have also looked at astrology's claims about careers. The idea is that being born under Mars, a supposedly warlike planet, produces more soldiers and athletes, whereas Venus produces more artistic types. In a study of 25,000 Frenchmen in the 60's, psychologist Michel Gauquelin found no correlations. He also did a study where he mixed up the birth charts of 10 murderers with 10 citizens and invited astrologers to identify which was which based on the charts. They failed miserably. A similar but larger study was published in 2007 and they found that the astrologers were EVEN MORE WRONG THAN RANDOM CHANCE. Youch.
Yet another study at the University of Manchester in 2001 looked at love compatibility by astrological sign to see if there were any trends. They had the data of 10 million couples from Census of Britain and Wales and found not a single sign pairing that showed a greater or lesser chance of romantic success. There's also the fact that the sun is no longer in a given zodiac constellation during it's designated time anymore. Although the sun is supposed to be in Aries right now, that's based on an outdated model it's actually in Pisces until April 18th. This is because.
Of precession, a phenomenon where the earth wobbles on its axis every 25,800yearcycle. Most peoples' signs that they believe they have.are actually wrong. Mine, for instance, isn't actually Libra, it's Virgo. And the description still manages to fit! Does this all mean astrology is good for nothing Well, no, of course not.it's good for entertainment! It's all good fun. My concern is that a recent report by the NSF that found almost half of Americans think Astrology is a real science. AMERICA.DUZ U KNOW HOW TO SCIENCE We still don't. The struggle continues. Thanks for joining me for DNews my fellow science geeks.
Zodiac Bad Traits Air Signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
Negative Traits of the three Air signs The air signs can shut down. They can become uncommunicative. When they feel that things are not balanced or the truth is not present, then they do not want to communicate at all. This is the opposite of being communicative. Why do we think that Geminis are such amazing liars and so duplicitous. If they can't find the truth, then they go to their shadow side. Geminis are known as liars because they are good at language so they are good at telling lies. They can tell lies as if they are the.
Truth. Good liars are people who remove their emotion from lying and Geminis can do that since they are so involved with the words. The shadow side of Libra is dependency. Libra can get stuck in their own notion of fairness. They can feel that something is unfair from their own limited perspective of what fairness looks like. They can be narrow minded about certain aspects of compromise. If a situation is already not fair, then we might have to have a bigger response in order to be able to make it fair. They can become dependent on relationships so they have a hard time.
Being alone. They need the relationship in order to compromise. They struggle to find a relationship so they can be in a situation where they can work something out with someone. Dependency on relationships is the shadow side of Libra Aquarians they can be cold and distant. They get disappointed when their ideals are not met. They have a perfectionist vision of an ideal situation and they apply that to individuals and we all know that we can't live up to someone's idealistic vision of what they are. So they become, distant, unemotional, and removed.
