Astrology is Mumbo Jumbo

I accidentally lost three mobile phones in the last three years. Part of the blame should go to my astrologer who didn’t warn me of my ill-fated luck with mobiles.

Let’s dig into this – At the time of my birth, the Sun was in the foreground of a random group of stars, which when seen from the Earth resemble weighing scales.

Long before my birth, with the advent of heliocentrism, the 2D projected model in the geocentric view became obsolete. Astrologers forgot to update their calculations with this finding. Also, since all the stars in the said group are moving in different directions in 3-Dimensions, the 2D resemblance will change to something totally unrelated in around 50,000 years. Some stars might even merge with the adjacent groups.

So, I sincerely request astrologers to consider the above “facts” and update their system so that miseries like the one I am facing can be avoided.

If the predictions made by the upgraded system also turns out to be “just random”, we can conclude that the Sun being in the foreground of a constellation during the time of birth of a human being does not affect his/her behavior. Then we have to trash the system and build resilient mobile phones.

Moral of the story:
Astrology (not to be confused with Astronomy) is mumbo-jumbo.

We should take astrology seriously. No, I don’t mean we should believe in it. I am talking about fighting it seriously instead of humouring it as a piece of harmless fun ~ Richard Dawkins
