I agree with you, that Astrology is a VERY soft "science". I do not even consider it a science.
Whether you call it a soft, hard, VERY soft or medium rare science
, you're calling it a science. So the 2 statements above are contradictory. A
"VERY soft science" is still a science, you've only specified your view a bit more if you put it like that, but at its core, you've still expressed
the view that it's a science when you describe it as a (soft) science.
Mind you, "science" comes from the Latin scientia
which means knowledge (which is also still a synonym for "science"). Essentially, knowledge
means familiarity with facts/truths/certainties/realities acquired by personal experience, observation, or study. (where you see a / I'm using
synonyms). There are no gradiations with facts/certainties, it's not a little bit of a fact/certainty, it's either a fact/certainty or it isn't.
Something is either right/true/factual/correct, without error or it isn't. The facts Newton described concerning the law of gravity are as correct,
without error today as the day he wrote them. Nothing in Einstein's theory of gravity or quantum physics disproves or refutes any of the facts stated
in Newton's law of gravity. It is not outdated, nor superseded by anything in quantum physics, unlike the impression often given by those wanting to
promote their unverified philosophies in quantum physics, some of whom are paradoxal/contradictory (as elaborated on by Professor Schrödinger with
the famous Schrödinger's cat paradox in response to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics). Synonyms for a paradox as listed on
The last 3 in a different color scheme indicating they are less relevant than the first 2, but still related to the word "paradox" in its primary
meaning "contradiction" (contradiction is listed as the primary meaning for the list there, other lists are further below among the section called
"WORDS RELATED TO PARADOX").
