The book  "The Mars 360 Religious and Social System" lays out a greater justification for belief in its doctrine than any other holy book in history. It takes astrology and turns it into a matter of life or death and has faith inducing mechanisms that could turn it into the next major religious system. This new religious system is equpped with a god, a currency, and a new morality that could replace Christianity, Islam & Judaism
 
In Volume I, the book uses statistics and accurate prediction of actual events to confirm its doctrine, making it irrational to disbelieve. Just imagine, a religion in which--by all statistical standards--it's considered irrational to disbelieve. There is also a political system that is far superior to any of those currently used in the world. The final volume lays out a hypothesis that the Federal Reserve can use observation of the planet Mars to set interest rates, along with creating a new faith based currency to replace the US dollar in the event of its collapse. 
 
The book is called "The Mars 360 Religious and Social System" and is written by Anthony of Boston. It is on Amazon and can be previewed extensively for free. The hardcover version has a high quality color interior.

If it's based on astrology, that's all we need to know: it is guaranteed to be crap.

To me, this says "If you're tired of reason, clarity, and predictability, and want to base your beliefs on things that can't be supported with evidence, this book won't disappoint!"

I'm Aquarian, so that makes me highly sceptical of your claims.

The book posits that the position of Mars in one's birthchart influences their outlook towards certain things. So essentially a person's Mars placement could in fact deter them from even believing in the influence of Mars. This is what is remarkable about the Mars 360 system. It actually takes into account those Mars factors that would keep a person from believing in the system or ascribing to any system for that matter

Is there something of substance you wish to discuss, or are you just shilling for the book?

Do you believe that there is a mechanism that drives your outlook towards certain ideas, or do you believe that you are above such factors and that your ideas, feelings, and suppositions as well as your improvisation on those are based solely on your freewill and not driven by certain other factors that are innate and immutable?

I don't think it's ever irrational to disbelieve something based on faith. I'm skeptical that the "statistics" used to form accurate predictions "confirm its doctrine". Can you give us an example of such statistical evidence?

We all have biases, sure. However that is not to say that any nonsensical idea can be put forward to account for them. Astrology, in particular, is demonstrably bunk.

What if someone were born on Mars at the same time?  The whole system seems to fall into incoherence.  If planets were in a certain relative position when someone was born on Earth, those positions would be different from the perspective of Mars's surface.

What is out there to help us track and compartmentalize these biases that we all have? It seems intellectually counterproductive to keep the notion of the various elements of the human condition and its origins scattered and unmanageable. Mars 360 gives us a model, a framework, something we can work with and its all based on statistics and demonstration. The book also ties it to Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs , dark matter, and quantum theory. What more can an intellectual ask for?

The book documens 3 years in a row of predicting the extact time frame of escalated rocket fire from Gaza into Israel relative to the rest of the year, and all based on a pattern going back to 2006 that shows Gaza militants fire more rockets at Israel when Mars is within 30 degrees of the lunar node as opposed to when it is not. The real time demonstration and the historical pattern is documented in the book.

What is it that makes Mars so influential? Gravity? The fact that I can or cannot see it at certain times? Something mystical?

What I believe doesn’t matter. What you believe doesn’t matter. 

What matters is what you can support with evidence. This being a science discussion site. So, I will ask again: Is there something of substance you wish to discuss, or are you just shilling for the book?

What corrects individual biases is reliance on collective perception, rather than that of individuals. That is why science relies on reproducible observation rather than individual anecdote.

Your next sentence, about elements of the human condition, seems to be a non-sequitur. It is not clear how that relates to anything that either you or I have mentioned up to this point. 

As for what more an intellectual can ask for, the answer is a coherent idea, clearly expressed and supported by evidence. As others have already pointed out on this thread, you have yet to come forward with anything like that. Referring us off-site to a book is not acceptable here. You need to lay out your ideas here on the forum where we can all see them and discuss them.  

But I have to reiterate that basing something on a concept like astrology that is well known to be pseudoscience, is not a promising start.  This link evaluates astrology against the criteria for science and shows why it is not science but pseudocience: https://www.learnreligions.com/astrology-is-astrology-a-pseudoscience-4079973. I realise you have posted in the Philosophy section but this is a science forum and readers here are unlikely to give credence to ideas that fly in the face of science, even in philosophy.
