When linking to the Skeptics’ Circle last week I forgot to point to a couple of posts on astrology from new blogger, The Perky Skeptic. These posts were A Personal View Of The Harm In Astrology, Part 1 and (surprisingly) Part 2. Both of these posts are based on The Perky Skeptic’s experiences with her own father, who was heavily into astrology. Part 1 expands on a view I have written about before, namely that most people use astrology as an excuse for bad behavior rather than an opportunity to change it. Part 2 shows how believers can easily be abused by an astrologer. Interesting reads both.
