Astrology

Welcome back, today we gonna talk about the biggest scam of all and that's astrology. Scientists in a variety of fields have become concerned about the increased acceptance of astrology in many parts of the world. Those who wish to believe in astrology should realize that there is no scientific foundation for its tenets.

 

In ancient times people believed in the predictions and advice of astrologers because astrology was part and parcel of their magical world view. They looked upon celestial objects as abodes or omens of the gods and, thus, intimately connected with events here on earth; they had no concept of the vast distances from the earth to the planets and stars.

 

Now that these distances can and have been calculated, we can see how infinitesimally small are the gravitational and other effects produced by the distant planets and the far more distant stars. It is simply a mistake to imagine that the forces exerted by stars and planets at the moment of birth can in any way shape our futures.

 

Neither is it true that the position of distant heavenly bodies make certain days or periods more favorable to particular kinds of action, or that the sign under which one was born determines one's compatibility or incompatibility with other people.

Veterans Day

The history of the United States is replete with stories of Americans who displayed the steadfast courage that defines our country. Today, the brave men and women of our Armed Forces continue that legacy as they write history in the war on terror. I would like to salute all the veterans, and like President Wilson, have “solemn pride in the heroism” of those who died in service to this great Nation. Your sacrifices have preserved for people around the world the freedom and the limitless opportunity that we enjoy in the United States today.
