    dude, it is a model but it doesnt model all aspects of life. look up exactly what astrology really is.
    Is that because you don't even know what it is in the first place?

    as·trol·o·gy n.
    A load of *******s thought up by some nutcases in the belief that it has some bearing on our lives, when in fact it means bugger all.

    y wud anyone believe in it? its like ghosts
    ppl believe in them because they want to believe in them, they dont care if they have no proof
    when people read their horoscopes and it says for example "you will get a big surprise" and then later on the sun comes out or the hamster dies they are like " oh my god, thats what my horoscope said!"
    fair enuf to those who believe in it but how can anyone seriously believe that rubbish

    I've no problem with people believing in whatever they wont - but when they litter their unproven, unproovable "theories" about the mechanics behind a belief with proper science terms and ideas (like sub atomic particles and electro-magnetic waves) to lend credibility to their beliefs then they'll get no sympathy here.

    I believe this website http://www.humandesignnw.com/neutrinos.htm is the source of your "science" of astrology Mr Z! - I feel no reason to refute it because it does not make any sense scientifically.

    It *isn't* science - it's belief. Stop muddying the waters.

    Newton's law of gravitation. Gravity is a really weak force though.

    With horoscopes and all that BS, people interpret the meanings to suit themselves, therefore a vague comment made about Aries may transpire into something that the person creates, it's all BS.

    It's gravity

    and even the moon (which causes the tides) has little effect on human behavior - just a bunch of myths propigated by the media

    i believe that proofing will only get u a state of mind, jus like how andrew wiles proved his ferment last theorem thingy for 7 years.

    however, i think its still good to believe in the theory behind it because there is still science involved in it. (enough said) so of course its stupid to believe in this whole thing.

    mayb u jus dont see why mathematicians like to prove things cuz u r not them.

    Not "enough said" at all. You've given no valid proof whatsoever as to accurate science behind astrology.
    And I'm a mathematician, I like to prove things. Still think astrology's a load of bullcrap though.

    how old r u? mayb over 25? no good mathematicians are over 25.

    btw, i dont need to give a valid proof. im jus saying that neutrinos exist and they hav an effect in changing our dna. u should chek this out urself.

    alright so u like proving things. go ahead and be creative in it, please.
