Do you belive in Astrology?

I am atheist. I don't belive in astrology,mantra tantra and Kundali. But today one tantrik told my colleague watching his hand abt his past life like he had deadly fights for 3 times, he has disease of itching in his knee, they are three brothers,he tried to attempt sucide for his gf.... etc. Now here is pool of bright and intelligent people. Let me take this opportunity to know how is it possible? Is astrology real? Do you belive? Am I wrong to be an Atheist?

    I am NOT an atheist . I am a devotee of Lord Hanuman and Lord Kaal Bhairav.......but I do NOT at all believe in Astrology ....

    Do Not relate theism with Astrology .

    Realm of Theism is much much bigger and much pious than Astrology.
  • new optional?
  • yes i believe in astrology but not in astrologers.
    The last earthly sojourn....therefore i accept every suffering with a big heart

  • @stupidneuron - no bhai there is nothing wrong in being an atheist, n since atheism is all about rationality and developing scientific temper, i guess u r nt wrong.

    Now coming to this astrology, lemme share you my incident, i was in class 10th in 2006 n got a chance to represent my school in national geography olympiad, n there i met a 60+ man, a proff. In geology,( he was a respected member there n was a member of delegation which usually visits african and european university, i still remember he was fond of block mountains )and he told us that this astrological charts n all, positions of planets during the time of our birth, actually controls our actions and thoughts, well to what extent it can't be determined.
    Every planets has some specific emissions which regulates our life cycle, to what extent, nt sure.
    Well he gave a long speech, n i can't recollect everything coz its been almost 8 years n i was too busy in sharing glances with a cute girl from bhopal.

    Anyways, personally i feel it may have some weight, yet can't exactly tell coz i hav nrva experienced the same.thanks fr asking this question, eva such thoughts pop up in my mind too

  • I believe in Princeton : https://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Astrology.html

    "Astrology is considered a pseudoscience or superstition by the scientific community, which sees a lack of statistically significant astrological predictions, while psychology explains much of the continued faith in astrology as a matter of cognitive biases."

  • I am damn sure these thread starters have a hilarious time watching us give our expert opinions while they giggle to themselves how smartly they have kept competitors at bay. Reason? They never comment after the first comment. ;))
  • @vkk - we'll interact more often.

    Hum dono mein se bada waala chu kaun hai?
