Astrology

Astrology is based on the claim that at the time of a person‘s birth, stars have an influence on personality. Historically, astrology was part of a religious system: Babylonian believed that gods exert influence on people through the stars.

This claim has no scientific basis, and astrology, like graphology, does not have any predictive power (Carlson, 1985; for a summary: http://www.ntskeptics.org/factsheets/astrolog.htm).

Astrology
  • If there is no scientific basis for astrology: why do people believe in horoscopes?
  • Among the numerous reasons are:
    • Apparent validity of horoscopes (Forer, 1949);
    • Apparent specificity of horoscopes (Snyder, 1974);
    • Positive hypothesis testing: If I read in a horoscope that I have self-doubts, I look for information that confirms the statement, and not for information that would falsify it.
