It's official: Astrology is a science

The age old art of astrology has recently been under serious fire in India, but it seems to have found support from an unlikely source – the Government.

An application was recently made to the Bombay High Court, demanding that fortune-telling based on the stars be outlawed. It claimed that astrology should be banned under the wonderfully-titled Drugs and Magic Remedies Act, which is meant to stop people making dodgy claims with no scientific basis.


However, in reply, the government's Deputy Drugs Controller has filed an affidavit, leaping to the astrologists' defence. He calls astrology ‘a time-tested science more than 4,000 years old’, and reckons the call for a ban is ‘totally misconceived and unjustifiable’.
