So About This Zodiac Thing ...

Upon signing up for blogger and filling out my profile information, I couldn't help noticing, after I hit the 'review profile' button, that displayed prominently were my Zodiac sign and Chinese horoscope. Why is there no option to leave this nonsense off one's profile? I feel like I'm supporting this woo by association. I don't even feel this is an atheist thing, either, though it does astound me how many followers of the 'Good Book' subscribe to something so, well ... ungodly. Anyone with even the slightest degree of knowledge in astronomy knows that the stars aren't in the same position they were in when the Zodiac was poofed into idiotic and lucrative existence so many years ago. And it isn't just blogger - it's Myspace and other networking sites, as well.

The Zodiac is as dead as as the armadillo you ran over coming back from Boudreaux's Swamp Shack 3am last Saturday, my friends, and it stinks just as badly. This is no longer an age of dogmatic superstition but an age of science and reason - an infinitely more beautiful thing if you ask me.

Cuddles,
Kate

I agree completely...but unlike religion, the social costs of openly mocking astrological nutcases is not that high. Belief in astrology is what I hope religion becomes.

I'm going to add your blog to my RSS feed...

There IS an option! I discovered it earlier today, and it made me VERY happy, Kate.
