Modern science does not agree with the Tropical Zodiac:
Physicist Georges Charpak and Professor Henri Broch, in their scientific book ‚ÄúDebunked‚ÄĚ, published in France, seek to ‚Äúunmask‚ÄĚ mystical philosophies and beliefs, together with certain paranormal phenomena like levitation, walking on coals, and so forth. They use the following argument to demonstrate the alleged falseness of astrology:
‚ÄúIn fact, the zodiac birth signs so common in astrological columns, along the supposed personal qualities for those born under them, are mostly based on astronomical positions traced out thousands of years ago. The problem with this is that the axis of the Earth‚Äôs rotation is in continual change. The axis pivots, in a way similar to a spinning top, completing a revolution in about 25,790 years. As a result the zodiac signs in use today by astrologers do not correspond at all to the constellations represented when the charts were originally drawn up‚ÄĚ
The authors conclude that modern society is infected with thoughts that have little to do with science and that it is not so rational or scientific, after all.
