Thanks for your response. I'd like to take your concerns one by one.
"Deconstructing horoscopes does not equal idealistic, and barely pragmatic to me."
Debunking Astrology and educating people as to its falsehoods is something I see as idealistic and pragmatic. Despite its fallacy, people still use Astrology to make major decisions in their lives. Getting people to abandon such superstition for reason and critical thinking would do a lot of good in my opinion. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
"This is a completely negative article."
Only if you are an adherent to or are otherwise empathetic for Astrology. Otherwise it's just an article on the science behind a phenomena.
"I, so to speak, 'give a damn,' so I really don't see how anything about this post is 'right.'
I give a damn too. As I said in another comment, I give a damn about exposing bad ideas. Climate change denial is a bad idea. Anti-gay marriage is a bad idea. Astrology is a bad idea. And bad ideas deserve to be revealed with reasoned thought and evidence as what they are: bad ideas. Invariably, this will piss people off, but so be it. Change is never a delicate process. It always involves discomfort.
That's what I give a damn about, and so, per the guidelines, that's what I contribute about.
Thanks again for your response.
-This is a completely negative article, nothing is "GOOD" about it, in a shallow sense of the word and its connotations.
