AGARTALA, November 30 (TIWN): All Tripura Astrologers’ Association (ATAA) organized their 6th annual conference at Matangini Pritilata Sabagriha, here today.

Addressing in the conference Minister for Science, Technology and Environment Bijita Nath said that astrology consists of a number of belief systems that hold that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community as having no explanatory power for describing the universe. Scientific testing of astrology has been conducted, and no evidence has been found to support the premises or purported effects outlined in astrological traditions, she mentioned.

The majority of professional astrologers rely on performing astrology-based personality tests and making relevant predictions about the remunerator's future, she added.

Those who continue to have faith in astrology have been characterised as doing so "in spite of the fact that there is no verified scientific basis for their beliefs, and indeed that there is strong evidence to the contrary", the minister added.

She commented on astrological belief, saying that "part of knowing how to think is knowing how the laws of nature shape the world around us. Without that knowledge, without that capacity to think, you can easily become a victim of people who seek to take advantage of you".
