Science Looks at Astrology
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, we look at what science and the Bible say about astrology.
Unfortunately, even Christians have more than a passing interest in astrology. Interest in astrology goes back thousands of years. And so do God’s warnings for His people to stay away from astrology.
Studies have turned up all sorts of problems with astrology. For example, as the Earth rotates, it also wobbles. As a result of that wobble, the zodiac upon which astrology is based has changed by nearly one entire constellation in only the last 2,000 years.
Astrologers have never accounted for that change.
The Bible opposes astrology for a more important reason than that it is false science. God warns His people away from astrology because it encourages us to trust in created things, like the stars, instead of the true God who made us and loves us.
