    i.e.,
    - There is some sort of reasonable support for.
    - There is not conclusive evidence against.
    - The possibility seems reasonable, even if unlikely.

    If it's completely out of left field and seems to make no sense, though, my window of acceptability diminishes. But I'll always entertain new arguments/proof.

    And I don't think that astrology and fairies are probable at all.

    Note: Tagging makes a big difference. I'm much more likely to file away an idea if I can tag it as "xx% likely," regardless of the value of xx.

    Incidentally it's the wrong thread...

    Well you lose the bet. I have read about astrology.

    I am aware of the open-mindedness topic. I posted there and if you read what I wrote you might consider that Perceivers tend toward open-mindedness and Judgers tend toward close-mindedness. I'd be happy to hear what you and others have to say on the topic, but there does seem to be some navel-gazing going on.

    LOL I so did read them but I got distracted...damned P type LOL

    so what ya read? ewe bet it wasn't Gauquelin's repeated research? Although many tried to damn it...I have to say astrologers SULK at research. One could prove it if one looked at major sweeping stuff, but they all want to be precious about megga details......

    I don't remember what I read. I just remember that it was ridiculous.

    I agree with Jennifer. And btw research does not prove ideas. It attempts to disprove them. Yes, good scientists try their very best to come up with a way to disprove their theory. If it cannot be disproved, then it is accepted as a theory. Astrology cannot be proved nor disproved, and therefor is not a candidate for scientific inquiry.

    But why I don't buy into it is simply because it's a ridiculous concept. I had a friend who read me my chart and it was nonsense.

    Hey don't stress, MBTI is directly based on astrology and you seem to be open to it. Jung was an astrologer the EI scale is about rising and decensign sign and balance of hemespheres, NS if Masculine and Feminine planets, J and P type are collective of Fixed or Mutability, S and T are elementally based - so Yea I can definately see well worth throwing the baby out with the bathwater

    I tend to read history - typical of time, to take the purer version of what is synthsised /chewed up in modern thinking so I can understand it better, I know thats not for everyone, which is why I started the OM thread in the first place....

    Well it is interesting over in NF world, no doubt. However, a lot of their threads have had strong similarities. I see a few more unique threads in here.
