Roger B. This book goes into the science of astronomy much more fully than other books looking into the claims of astrology. So the astrological picture of the universe is wrong in a number of ways. And there is no scientific basis for claims of correlations between events in the 'sky' and events on the planet Earth. Whenever the predictions of astrology have been subjected to rigorous scientific tests, they have failed.

Astrology: True or False? : A Scientific Evaluation. by Roger B. Culver & Philip A. Ianna (Author). Hello Dr. Joe, Here are 3 beliefs concerning food that I believe have no scientific basis: 1. That a normal person should not eat eggs because because it will increase their cholesterol level. 2. That soy milk is healtheir than cow's milk for menopausal woman. 3. That it's better to take calcium supplements than drinking milk or getting calcium from other food sources. PS. I think this is a great initiative for bringing science to the public! 0. 0.

If there are fewer such studies than you might expect, I suspect it’s because most scientists don’t consider it to be a good use of their time.

Contemporary astrologers claim that their craft is scientifically based and rationally consistent, and above all, that "astrology works" - a belief shared by millions of Americans, including highly visible political and media personalities. As a result, the practice of consulting the stars for advice has never been more popular - or more dangerous.Professional astronomers Roger B. Culver and Philip A. Ianna have produced a highly readable and well-referenced response to the claims of astrologers.

Tracing humanity's historical fascination with the heavens that produced the celestial "twins" of astronomy and astrology, the authors leave little doubt concerning the difference between astronomical science and astrological art form.Astrology: True or False offers a complete and extensive summary of available evidence on astrology's basic definitions, concepts, and effectiveness. The authors' research revealed thousands of predictions gone "bust" - from the start of World War III to claims about the existence of an "anti-Earth" orbiting on the other side of the sun. They studied the famous "twenty-year cycle" of presidential death and disaster, the "moon cycles" of crime and murder in major cities, and the incidences of major personality traits in certain sun signs. Their conclusions, while disappointing to the determined believer in astrology, are nevertheless refreshingly rational.

...and was impressed by this book. Don't get me wrong, it didn't change my position that astrology is "true" even a little bit. However, this is the only anti-astrology work that didn't infuriate me with assuming, pompous authors. Their well researched arguments and sincere approach earned my respect and are among the best out there. You will get a plethora of additional value from this also, if you are a layman lover of science. But, yes, I'm still an ardent supporter of astrology. This book is a resource that lets me fight back against the best. Though many will be tempted to accept it as such, this book is not the last word on the subject.

Astrology: True or False? A Scientific Evaluation

(Library of Congress call number: BF1713.C84x 1988)

This book goes into the science of astronomy much more fully
than other books looking into the claims of astrology.
The folklore now known as astrology grew out of star-gazing,
long before astronomy learned how the universe really works.
So the astrological picture of the universe is wrong in a number of ways.
And there is no scientific basis for claims of correlations
between events in the 'sky' and events on the planet Earth.
Whenever the predictions of astrology
have been subjected to rigorous scientific tests, they have failed.
This book will be read with profit by anyone interested
in the scientific evaluation of the claims of astrology.

If you would like to discover other such books,
search for a bibliography on the Internet using this expression:
"OCCULTISM AND SCIENCE".

Astrology: True or False? is an easy to read scientific evaluation. You don't need to have an understanding of how astrology is perceived to work. You'll quickly get a grip on the basics by reading the early chapters. Arguments are logical and backed-up by scientific evidence rather than assertion or hearsay. Required reading for all critical thinkers.

This is not really a review, but a reaction to Tim Rubald's reaction to the title of the book. I agree, the title is not so great, but based on what the other reviewers have written, it seems like a good book. Maybe we should get it and decide for ourselves?
Kupidon
Full of useful information, methodical and a delight to read

This is not really a review, but a reaction to the title of the book. Shall we look forward to a series with titles like: Arithmetic, True or False; Religion, True or False; Psychology, True or False?
