Larry Wessels, Director of Christian Answers of Austin, Texas/ Christian Debater (YouTube channel CANSWERSTV) is joined in studio at Austin's major Christian radio station for "Christian Answers Live!" (hosted by Lee Meckley) by Steve Morrison, webmaster of Christian Debater's websites: http://www.BIBLEQUERY.ORG, http://www.HISTORYCART.COM, & http://www.MUSLIMHOPE.COM for a discussion on the religious superstition known as ASTROLOGY. ASTROLOGY is the belief that national destinies & individual destinies are predetermined by the relative positions of the stars in the sky as they correlate to the planet earth. An astrologer believes that the arrangement of stars, planets, & constellations at the time of one's birth sets a determined pattern in the life of that person. Oriental or Chinese astrology has twelve "signs" or animals (i.e., rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog & pig) which correspond to twelve different years. Western astrology has twelve signs for twelve houses in one year. Astrology was thought to be a science until the sixteenth century, when the Copernican Revolution challenged the popularly held geocentric view of Ptolemy's astological zodiac (which considered the earth as the center of the universe & that the earth was flat). Astrology is easily refuted by modern astronomy (example, above the latitude 66 degrees it cannot be calculated what point the zodiac is ascending on the horizon) but this has not diminished popular contemporary belief in this superstition. Because of the occultic nature of religious astrology it is greatly condemned throughout the Bible (2 Kings 17:16, 23:5; Isaiah 47:13, Amos 5:26, Acts 7:39-43.
