Of course we do. It’s called the Trash Can

If this is your viewpoint, then you can start a topic in the speculation section. From there, you form a testable hypothesis, come up with a measurable experiment, perform the experiment, observe

...on a science forum? I don’t think so, sorry.

Well, from my experience I am astonished with the fact that many people around me firmly believe in the importance of the zodiac signs. People including PhD. To the point that is not a belief anymore, it is presented as a certainty.

Us aquarians don't believe in that stuff.

I think Astrology, has a greater right to be in a science forum than religion, there is LESS science for a god,  than for Astrology.

Some times when i do pop to this forum, there are more posts on religion, than there is science.

Astrology: study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world. 

The moon is a "celestial body", there is some science to how the moon effects animals & people, animals I suppose more to do with the tides, but the moon is the nearest celestial body, so I suppose it would have the greatest effects.

science does not completely rule out yet unmeasurable  effects of  celestial bodies upon humans & animals., Plus Astrology has never been taken seriously by the science community, so no  in depth studies have been made.

I would guess that when certain star signs are in the sky, we are bombarded by neutrinos from said system, we are told neutrinos pass through us with no measurable effect, but there may be " yet unmeasurable effects". I won't get into gravitational effects, because we still do not yet fully understand gravity.

Anyway

Astrology deserves more respect than the "Trash", if Astrology goes in trash, then so should Religion.

Therefore, not based on science.

If they are unmeasurable then, in scientific terms, they don't exist.

On the other hand, people who believe in astrology seem to think that everyone born within the same 30 day period will experience the same things in their life. That should be easily measurable. In fact it should be obvious. But it doesn't happen.

Not true. Studies have been done and found it to be utterly meaningless.

But thanks for telling us about your [quasi-religious] beliefs. It was fascinating.

Once again, the sun is a "celestial body", which has a great effect on humans/animals

I myself do not agree with the modern interpretation of Astrology, & 30 day period, even the light/neutrinos/energies from these star systems/signs, take far longer than 30 days, so I would not expect people born under each sign to have more similar life experiences, but it does not mean this "celestial bodies" have no effect upon the humans/animals.

I just believe on some level, there is some truth in almost anything.& open to all points of view.

Correct, and plants, too. However, measuring that effect does not involve labels like Pisces or dragon or weekly fortune cookie comments from random peddlers of woo.

Be careful not to let your mind be so open that your brains fall out.

True, Perhaps "ASTROLOGY" could be condensed to those born under the Sun  & those born under the Moon. like the saying, "As different as Night & Day".

No worries, My brain is anchored to the physical, My mind has a mind of it's own.

Whoa but who changed the title of this post without my permission? 

Change it back. Don’t alter things I say or write without my consent, especially if you’re going to make it look like I said it. At the very least, add your name alongside it stating that you edited it.

It was edited by staff (not me) in a manner generally recognised here as being an answer to the thread title. We are never going to have an astrology section. 

Regardless, tell “staff” not to edit my things. ESPECIALLY if they don’t at least add who it is that’s editing the posts, and ESPECIALLY not without consent... Like wtf is this, a joke? Do not troll me that way.

If it’s a big deal (seriously, tho?) staff could add the prefix ANSWERED:

It is a big deal. God forbid the day someone hacks my stuff and posts things that aren’t from me. Think of the legal consequences, especially if someone makes some kind of threat from my account. 

But anyway whatever I’m over it.

I’m sorry, but you don’t have ownership of thread titles. We won’t ever change the text of your posts (except for deleting links, or abuse, but we make those edits clear), but we do reserve the right to alter titles if it is deemed necessary. This happens when we need to split posts into new threads, if the titles are unclear or inappropriate, spammy, or we want to save people the time of reading a thread that has a very simple answer (for example).

The staff can do whatever they want.

Sure they can, but not on my behalf. I’ll gladly leave someplace where they’re changing things around without consent, making it look like I’m posting things that I’m not.

If you’re changing the text—title or post—state that you’re doing it regardless so users know it’s you (staff, not “you” directly) and not me. That’s all I’m asking. Not trying to be cast in a light that I’m not supposed to be, especially if I have someone hacking my stuff to do it.

I am sorry you didn’t feel the edit was clearly pointed out. Returning to the topic, are you at least satisfied with the response, or do you have further questions?

Of course I have further questions. I have a problem that I haven’t solved yet.

On another note, this site likely won’t soon be opening a forum for numerology either.

Whoa it’s like you’re psychic or something and read my mind! :o
