    Does this spelling of celestial make you cool?

    Oh. So you *do* use the planets not seen to the naked eye. How come
    their existence was not deduced by astrologers?

    Don't try to argue that the transliterations of the words have anything
    to do with their modern meanings. The word "astrology" was already taken
    when the science of astronomy needed a name. Otherwise, astrology would
    be the word for the science.

    This is foolish and prejudicial. If there was any truth to this
    nonsense, then you could calm the worries of millions of teenaged boys
    with a simple web site. The boy enters his birth date and location, the
    program consults an ephemeris and tells him whether he's gay. No need
    for the straight boys to suffer all that needless angst; no need for the
    gay ones to suffer their uncertainty.

    Oh, yeah, you're not a homophobe because the literal translation means
    one who fears the same thing.

    Astrology makes many falsifiable claims. Unfortunately, they've all been

    More like the ravings of drug - induced hallucination, much like
    the Book of Revelation itself. It may well be the most astrological
    book ever written, astrology is crap anyway.

    This min character is a complete asshole. The basic tenet of real astrology
    is that it is NOT predictive about future events.
