PZ Myers at Pharyngula is gathering a list of science blogs that oppose George W. Bush’s endorsement of Intelligent Design as a sensible theory, a move he describes as ‘boneheaded’. Myers is of the opinion that teaching faith as science to American children is a bad thing. Well he’s a nice guy, but I have to disappoint him. I think it might be a good thing. It’s all a matter of perspective.
Once again the ‘scientists’ have gone and spoiled it all by finding not just one, but three possible planets. That could mean that modern science has added six new planets to the original seven (in astrology the Sun and Moon are planets). There’s now 2003EL61/K40506A, 2003UB313 and now 2005FY9. The last might be a Kuiper Belt Object rather than a proper planet. Are these planets going to have an astrological effect? Checking my astrology poll the answer appears to be 100% clear. They might do they might not.
There’s been a question on Sedna running for a while: In March 2004 a new planetoid, Sedna, was discovered. Since then do you think…
For a supposedly ‘scientific’ period that’s quite a surprise. 30% of people think Sedna will have a positive effect on astrology and 40% think it shows astrology is a load of rubbish. It’s a small sample, but I won’t let that stop me from galloping to conclusions. What’s going on?
