Astrology doesn't work

ANyway, the text book is what it given to you when you sign up for accreditation couse from the American Federation of Astrologers. It wasn't cheap either. Go look at their website and you'll see it. I'm enrolled in the course that incorporates the math. You have to take that one if at the end you want to take the licensing test.

[quote]I'm guessing you're to the left politically, because I think skepticism is a liberal trait. Also, I percieve Denmark as being a liberal country compared to the US.[/quote]
Thou art correct.
[quote]I'm gonna guess you like normal modern rock, some metal, and some rap but not too hardcore. I'm making that assumption based upon what the average person of your demographic here in the US would listen to.[/quote]
Incorrect. I listen to something as strangely as film scores and classical music.
[quote]No. I don't see you as being emotional really at all, but thats probably the second language thing.[/quote]
Not emotional I would say. I can get a lump in my throat, but that's a rare occasion so I consider myself to be unemotional during movies.
[quote]I'm guessing you're single or have at most a casual gf.[/quote]
You gave a double answer, so I don't think you should get points there. I'm currently single, but looking for a girlfriend.
[quote]Yes... not heroin or something potentially life threatening like that, but I could see pot and/or LSD.[/quote]
I have tried so little(Just hash a couple of times), so I would consider myself non-experimtal. Argh, not sure how to evaluate the answer. I'll ignore it.
[quote]Action and some Drama. I don't see you as having the 'suspension of disbelief' required to enjoy horror.[/quote]
Actually I believe all humans have the 'suspension of disbelief' no matter how skeptical they are. My two favority genres are actually comedies and horrormovies.
[quote]Dogs. Most guys like dogs better.[/quote]
[quote]The fact that you asked the 2nd question makes me think you smoke.. I'd say 1-10 a day.[/quote]
A logical asssumption, but nevertheless wrong. It was a trick question, I don't smoke at all.
[quote]I'm gonna guess no. Maybe someone was missing... just a guess.[/quote]
Not particularly happy, correct.
[quote]I'll say hay fever. I don't think you'd have posed that question if you didn't have some allergies.[/quote]
Wow, that's a great hit. A normal hit would just be "yes you have allergies' but you even guessed which one it was. Imegine if you have claimed some supernatural ability, and you could have won over believers easily.
[quote]Leno.. if you were older I'd have said Letterman..[/quote]
Yup, I'm a Leno guy.
[quote]I'm likely wrong on at least half of these... hopefully I am because that will make me a good benchmark .[/quote]
Hmm, let me count...

This test really shows that people can perform better than chance by mere guesswork

Working with computers kind of bores me and I'm known for poorly thought out career changes... maybe for my next such change I can buy a big extravagant hat, sit in a tent with a crystal ball somewhere and charge $100+ for a reading. If someone wanted to believe that what I was saying was caused by real supernatural knowledge, then I could explain away a 30% miss rate 8).
And thats assuming I need to give any specific answers at all.

However, if someone were to say, just pay for an astrological chart from an online business and never had any contact with anyone, considering these are usually programs that do all the work themselves, then reading body language and vibes based on statements made is irrelevant and you have nothing to examine but the chart itself and what it tells you. However, charts still tend to be very vague, which is ironic considering how detailed some of them can be. I value astrology for different reasons than some, so I can't really say anything about it's validity as a whole. However, when it comes to general readings and psychics, it's easier to determine if the person is a fake, doing a "cold reading" or legitimate to a degree. Not even a person who sees the future can give you every detail to validate his/her claims, because we are victims of human error and are bound to make mistakes.
