Are Psychics Coming Aboard, Too?

This was news to me: Patheos has an Astrology channel:

It features gems like this:

Pluto goes direct today in Capricorn closely squaring Uranus in Aries. Mercury, the planet of communication just went into Libra, the sign of balance and fairness; add to that the Sun going into Libra for the Autumnal Equinox on Saturday and we’ve got a very distinct shifting of energy.

Bonus points to you if you can distinguish how that made-up nonsense is any worse than, say, Catholicism.

Anyway, that’s the nature of the beast when you’re writing on a website that promotes all sorts of dialogue about belief. You get the people who believe whatever the voices in their head tell them to believe without regard for proof or evidence… and you get the atheists :)

Being on the same channel doesn’t mean we can’t criticize bullshit when we see it, though. Here’s a prediction for you: It’s gonna be one hell of a good time when two of the Astrology bloggers post on the same day but say wildly different things.

I, for one, welcome my new blog fodder.
