Astro claptrap causes gas
Re: Predictions & Horoscopes, Jan. 5-11
I am both disappointed and dumbfounded that you would choose to dedicate one quarter of your entire publication to the superstitious claptrap that is astrology. The idea that a planet made of gasses, 1.6 billion miles away, could have any affect on the emotional or intellectual state of a single individual on our planet of seven billion people is beyond ludicrous. Even astrologers have no plausible explanation. “As above so below” is not a thesis; it is a meaningless statement. Our planet and civilization is facing very real and present dangers. If we are to solve our problems, we need real solutions rooted in reality and reason. Clinging to irrational, medieval superstition and myth can only serve to distract us from more important issues.
