astrology and potential matePage 2 of 19    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19)

Well , I checked out the site and was remarkably impressed... it had me at least 60% correct.... too bad I entered today's date as my birthdate.... I then entered about 5 other dates and times and places .... I was approximately 50%-60% accurate on every one and found no discernable differences in my real birthdate


What happened when you put in YOUR birthday? It seems as if you are more out to prove that this is a joke then anything else. Thats fine, good job on the closemindedness. You win :)

Also, how can you explain the fact that when women are around each other for long periods of time (in hs it was my dance team) that all of out menstrual cycles would sync?

http://academic.evergreen.edu/curricular/ASTRO/astro2001/projects/luna/menstruation/mencycle.htm

"Lieber uses the data of previous studies on the relationship between the menstrual cycle and the lunar cycle to prove his point. He quotes the results of Walter and Abraham Manager, whose study was published in 1959 in an unknown journal:

"They used a massive data base. Examining existing studies on the duration of the menstrual cycle, they found that, on the average, the human menstrual cycle is not approximately the same length as the lunar month-- it is exactly the same length, twenty-nine and one-half days (52)."

I looked at Astrology very seriously when dating...
If I found out a woman believed in Astrology, I dumped her. I wanted an intelligent woman.... belief in astrology is a sign(had to throw that word in somehow) that she isn't bright enough to go out with...



Ha, ha!


I was asked in court by my ex husband's lawyer during a child custody trial if I believed in the horoscopes I was looking at on the internet for fun. If I said YES it was going to help prove I was CRAZY.lol

The tilt of the earth determines those things, not the sun...


Obviously the tilt of the Earth is one determining factor, the Sun is another. If one can somehow can cover the Sun so it does not shine, what good would the Earth's tilt be?



The same sun shines on the equator and the arctic at the same time... however, the weather and all other factors are different.... so that throws your theory out the window too....


Yes the weather is different. However, in the Summer the Arctic gets a bit warmer, and so is the Equator. The theory still holds.

Also, you might find this interesting: http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/090827-sun-climate.html



How is it easy to argue?
So, if a doctor induces labour a day early, or delays it a day or two or a few, are you then not the person you were supposed to be?


I don't know for certain. You will have to ask a doctor. But I'm more than willing to grant you the assumption that no change occurs in the baby's personality. If you want to say it's same person, that's fine. And the opposite is just as fine. I can still argue that the infant's destiny is partially determined by the planets and stars.

Suppose a new born baby is born with a fixable complication, but the complication requires the assistance of specialist overseas. The hospital fires up their Satellite link, connects the operating doctors with the specialist and the procedure begins. However, unknown to everyone, the Sun acts up and eight or so minutes later solar winds bring down the satellite link, and without the assistance of the specialist the baby dies or suffers complications.

If the solar winds did not happen, the baby might have lived or not suffered any complications. If the baby was born a day earlier, it might have lived. If the baby was born a day later, it might have lived.



Why not argue conception is more important than delivery?


I could. Just change the above case scenario. On the day the baby was conceived, solar winds caused a nuclear reactor to explode, and the radiation from the reactor causes the baby to be born with 3 arms.

However, I realize that's not what you are really asking. But the question you are asking need not be answered. To argue that the day of conception is more important than the day of birth or the opposite is to argue the wrong argument. Suppose the stars do have influence - they will have an influence on the day of conception and the day of birth. And if the starts have no influence, then they will no influence on the of conception and the day of birth. The question is whether the stars and planets do have an influence. To me it's clear that they do.



If all things are connected, then they would all cancel out variations... therefore everything would be the same.... again, your theory fails to hold water...


Well, if I can give one example of how something can be the same, without the variations being canceled out, my theory still holds. I have that example:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Light_dispersion_conceptual_waves.gif

White light contains all the colors. In other words, all the colors in white light are the same, namely, white. Yet when white light is passed through a prism, we get the entire spectrum of colors, and if one were to use another prism he can get the spectrum of colors to change back to white light, and repeat the entire process. Obviously then, something can be the same (such as white light) without any variations, yet be different.

I can say that everything in the universe is like white light, and the mind is like a prism, and that's why we see "many" things, rather than everything as "one".

I won't comment on this further as it is way off topic. It's also unnecessary as I don't need to prove that everything is connected in order to show that stars and planets have influence on a person's day to day life, and therefore his/her destiny.

M church -

Let me explain. I love looking into horoscopes. Do I base my life off my sign? No. Have I found that about 90% of my sign is correct? Yes. Would I not date a person based on thier sign? No. Why? Because everyone is brought up differently. It isn't just about your sign, but I do believe that some people are more like thier sign. With all the other influences on our lives there is no way to nail someone to a tee. I might be more like my sign because of less emotional trauma as a child. Who knows. You know what I don't do? I don't rule it out. I don't make the statement that it is foolish or subsequent staments trying to prove that it is wrong. Then again I am a Libra and we tend to be gullible. Hummm..

Either way, whether it effects our personalities or not, there has to be more correlation to the moon then you are allowing. It rules our tides, how can you say that it doesnt have any effect on us? I realise you have your studies, but I have my experiences. I will take true life experiences over scientists experiments any day. BTW - the men I have dated have been so close to thier signs, but why would you believe me? I am not a scientist.

This is crap! How can you go by astrology in a romantic relationship and not go by it with friends or family? Hogwash!
Did anyone here say anything about it only applying to romantic relationships? If they did I missed it.

Yes, frog, we heard your croaking.



I find astrology fun and interesting. I DEFINITELY have a LOT of typical Sagitarrius traits: independent, open-minded, loves to travel, needs variety, etc.

I DON'T look for (potential) mates by zodiac signs.


I'm a Leo. I'm independent, open-minded, love to travel (16 countries so far), need variety, etc...

I guess I should check out this Astrology thing. It seems so scientific...

Seeking to base a real relationship on something fictional shows you don't want a serious relationship. Just because the people you happen to have gotten along with were the same "sign" doesn't really mean anything. Rational people call that a coincidence.
Except when many other people have similar accounts/experiences that tends to reinforce that it's not coincidence.

I would never base meeting someone on astrology.
Weird thing is the guys I really fall for and was married to two have all been Scorpio.
I do not figure that out for the world.

I am a Gemini and sure don't base my personality or life on this.

Just looking above on being served................Where does my brain go but to British comedies and "Are You Being Served?

Just like you can not convince someone to believe in God or vice versa we non believers of astrology will never convince the believers it is all just coincidences set up to fool them into thinking it is real. It's worth repeating though.lol



However, much larger numbers of people do not have those experiences...
Also, when horoscopes are deliberately written to target a large number of people, they tend to appeal to gullible people who read into them "Oh that's me..."

Think to yourself about your failed relationships and what sign the people were. Then think to yourself what was the reason(s) for it ending. Think what their prominent traits were and if their were any personality conflicts.

Is it all just coincidence? I guess....... Or maybe not.

My worst failed relationship was with a Capricorn, my ideal sign to match with my personality. He has Narcisstic traits which have nothing to do with his sign. My current relationship that is going great is with a Sagittarius, one of the worst signs to match with a Virgo. No rhyme or reason except astrology means nothing.lol


Don't base who you date on astrology you may miss out on the perfect one for you.

There is definitely something to astrology, as the most powerful organizations and people on earth study the stars closely. Just not the "pop astrology" that you see in the newspapers and such. That's just baloney. For starters, there is WAY more involved with real astrology than just sun signs (Leo, Capricorn, etc). Real astrology takes into account ALL the planets, the moon, other stars/constellations, etc.

If you're a guy and you want to know the real secrets behind the stars, and you don't mind taking an oath to people you don't know very well, join the freemasons. They know all about it.

Lastfrog, what research have YOU done that supports your definitive statement that "astrology is bullshirt"?
Other people's opinions, especially scientists who study other disciplines and are expert in their OWN discipline doesn't impress me much (thanks Shania Twain!)

Talking in absolutes doesn't impress the heck out of my either.
By all means disagree, and I'd defend to the death your right to do so, but at least leave a small window open for reasonable doubt.
But hey, what I'm proposing is actually scientific.
1. Do your own research
2. Do your own observation
3. Arrive at a possible theory.
Empirical. Scientific. Provide proof.
Nothing scientific about "its all bullshirt".
And slurring the character of people who find the study of Astrology interesting or even compelling isn't scientific either.
Let's see now; didn't three WISE men use the study of the stars to locate the Saviour?

Finally in all the thousands of years, NOT ONE PERSON has ever PROVEN astrology works.... EVER....
I think that's because people have their life experiences + their traits. How can you prove something that is not 100% responsible for something? Everybody tends to seem to 'fit' with each other initially. This is largely due to the infatuation/lust drunk/eager to please stage in the beginning of a relationship. After the 'dust' settles you might start to notice some incompatibilities crop up.

Not only that if you read something that says a certain thing will happen or you possess a certain trait and you believe it, on a subconcious level you will probably MAKE it happen
What about those who have no inkling of how they are 'supposed' to behave yet fit their sign almost perfectly?

For those who don't think astrology works: Do you realize that the most powerful people in the world are into astrology? This is nothing new. The great pharaohs who built the pyramids built them based on astrology. The people running the planet today are descended from those pharaohs. Read some books like "Bloodlines of the Illuminati" or study the Freemasons and the Knights Templar. All these people are into astrology and the ancient Sun cults. Why do you think we have an obelisk in out capitol?

That's why I am smart enough to point out that astrology is a slly superstition. I want a potential mate to realise I'm intelligent....






I don't care if my SO reads my posts, I only write the truth. I do not attack other posters on here either. Unless your trying to hide part of your personality why would you care if a potential mate read the forums?

Actually....I agree with the naysayers....it is all coincidence. Which is actually great for me since just by coincidence my experience has demonstrated the signs to be very coincidentally accurate. So what does this say about my luck running across coincidence after coincidence? I should go to Vegas.

My impression, people who buy into such things tend to make them self fulfilling.
Things were already 'fulfilled' beforehand IMO. Later finding out after the fact what someones sign is can simply be confirmation. Why do you think there are people out there who swear off dating a certain incompatible sign for them? Are they just drinking the kool aid? (that they didn't ask for) or are they simply correlating things after all other apparent causes are ruled out?
