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.

Schwingin by WarnerChappell Production Music Good and bad. Like probably sexually like the top. Because they're super passionate and intense. I think you would sleep with an Aries, but not date an Aries. Because they're probably really experienced, and I would just be so nervous. But I just don't think I could do it again. I've had too many Aries heartbreaks in my life. Like I would totally see myself with another Aries. Pisces need a little bit more than most people. I could see myself being in like a two year relationship.
And then we'd part amicably. You have to be pretty selfless to date a Pisces. It's like the longest relationship I've been in is with a girl that was a Pisces. Like sexually, a Pisces is like there for you. I couldn't date a Pisces. I think it's 'cause I see them and I like see myself and see like maybe a friendship. I just don't see anything sexual in other Pisces. Like I feel like sex with a Pisces is just very genuine. They're in the moment.
Yes. I would date a Leo. Thanks. Like Leos are very loyal. They're so good at sex. I've dated a Leo. It was really fun. Leos are addicting. Like you fall in love with a Leo and then you're like why am I yelling He was wild. You're like, what are we even fighting about I don't know. Now we're having sex. That's a Leo. Yes, if you are looking for a straightforward boyfriend or girlfriend who will just be good at being a boyfriend.
Or girlfriend, you cannot go wrong with a Cancer. Cancers really are like hubby, wifey material. Seem just like steady, like caring confident people. They wanna like have very romantic sex staring into your eyes. Like staring, like both your eyes are open during sex Yeah, both your eyes Just like really are open looking at staring at each other each other. And with every thrust you feel love. I would love to date one, except that I'd be super nervous.
All the time because everybody would want them. Sagittarius females seem like the kind of person that I would end up with. Givers. They are givers. They are probably givers sexually, I bet. They'll just put everything in perspective and you're like the world isn't gonna end. You're so right. I think that they would like play your favorite music during lovemaking. Yeah. I think Sagittarius are very sweet people, but I do think it would take a while to find out what they really want I think that would drive me crazy.
I'm gonna be practical here and I don't think I could date a Sagittarius because their birthdays are too close to Christmas and that's like a lot of presents to buy. Now, it's a tough, tough person to date, a Scorpio. Man. It sounds for like an enlightening hookup, but not for like long term. An enlightening hookup. I have been in relationships with Scorpios and it always ends in just. I haven't had a long term relationship with a girl that's a scorpio, but I will say that relationship.

Lively music Sexy but scary We are great at sex, and we are, like, pretty fun to date. Scary, I'll give you the scary, absolutely not. I would date andor hook up with one, but I don't see much more. I know some people will say they wouldn't a Gemini because we're flighty and we don't commit. See, I feel like I'd be continually insecure, just like in a perpetual state of insecurity. I feel like a hipster Gemini. Oh, yeah. Oh, my God, that's so hot.
Voiceover Oh, my first crush was a Taurus. I don't think I could date them just because I know how stubborn they are. If you're trying to date them and expect compromise, it's never going to happen. I think they're great, I think they're persistent and focused and really supportive. They're super down to earth. I'm into it, if this is a precursor, I'm like, give me more Taurus, please. Yes, I think that's like the wife material right there. Very like balanced, probably good.
For dreamy signs like ours. Libras sounds to me like the kind of person that's like, okay, so we're gonna split the cheque down exactly. I fall in love with Libras so easily because they're just so charming. You said Beyonce's a Virgo, right laughing Absolutely. Virgo won't put up with your shit. They're really good conversationalists. They almost seem unattainable. I think Virgo would get tired of me real quick. I think they're the ideal person to have a family with when you're ready for that.
But in terms of like having casual fun and you're just kinda dating, whatever, I don't think they're the ones for that. I imagine an Aquarius opens their bed side drawer and there's like an array of toys and they're like, whatever you want. Oh, my God. Oh, I think they'd be good in bed, too. Yeah. I'm attracted to them, like, just right off the back because they're so creative, and I'm like, oh, my God, I love this, but like they're too aloof for me.
Confident and grounded and know what they want. Who's that girl you like hook up with and she flits away, and you're like, oh, man, I really liked her. Yeah, but she was always meant to get away because she's kind of like a figment of your imagination. I would love to date a Capricorn because I think they would be very appreciative of the affection I'm giving them because they're usually over looked. Capricorn man seems boring, but Capricorn woman I would definitely date because I bet she's secretly in charge of everyone.
I find Capricorns to be hilarious. They're just too committed to a plan and I think that life is a journey and I think everyday is different. I like schedules, so if you're gonna plan my day out and say, hey, this is where we spend time together and I'm all for it because I like organization. Meeting every new person is a challenge that's about finding the qualities in each type of person that are for you. They're really close to Christmas, like actually really close to Christmas.
