5 thoughts on “Do palmistry is a science and should be believed in like astrology ?

  1. no palmistry and astrology and numerology r only statistical data guides am
    nd do not take heredity
    environment
    and circumstances into acct hence are guides and conjectures only

  2. Niether of them is a science. The only peop,e that believe in them are the people that dont know enough about them to see the holes! It doesnt make any sense, when describing the practise of astrology, they use general terms like ‘the universe’, (as in, the universe decides your fate), the universe is a big damn place! What is supposed to control my fate and how? They simply wont answer that, and if they do, its more general crap like ‘the alignment of the planets at certain times of the year combined with when your were born predicts your future’.

    How can that make sense? Who figures all this out and how?

    Its all about as credible as that drug addict Nostradamus or tarot cards!

  3. Yes palmistry is a science and you can treat it like science.
    Palmistry is deeply associated with astrology. Actually well read palmist looks for the planetary placement in the palm.
    The number of lines on the thumb (as seen in the finger print checking) and the number of vertical lines on the different divisions on the smallest finger give the correct rising sign using a simple mathematical formula.

    Other planetary positions can be deduced from the palm itself.
    Most of the well read palmists in India mentally calculate the planetary positions while looking at the palm and then give the predictions based on the same.

    The ancient astrological texts in india not only give detailed astrological combination but also the lines and indications on the palm and body.

    Please disregard the rants of illiterate youngsters here who yap too much without an iota of knowledge on the subject.

    The problem with these subjects is that every person wants to be an astrologer or palmist and do not want to study for the same.

    You will come across many such people who are trying to learn astrology online and they will become famous due to connections or due to investment.

    When people ask them for predictions the predictions are inaccurate at which the science is defamed and when accurate predictions are made the astrologer/palmist gets all the credit.

  4. You must understand what is SCIENCE not magic.

    From the Latin scientia, meaning “knowledge.” Science is a search for knowledge of the universe.

    Scientists observe, draw conclusions from their observations, design experiments to examine those conclusions, and end up stating a theory which should express a new fact or idea. But if new or better evidence comes along, they must either discard that theory or amend it to accommodate the new evidence.

    In effect, science is a process of arriving, but it never quite arrives. A theory can perhaps be disproved, but it can never really be “proved.” Only the probability of a theory being correct can ever be properly stated. Fortunately, most of science consists of theories that are correct to a very high degree of probability; scientists can only establish a fact to the point that it would be obstinate and foolish to deny it. Since new data are constantly being presented, a theory or observation may have to be refined, repudiated, modified, or added to in order to agree with the new data.

    True science recognizes its own defects. That willingness to admit limitations, errors, and the tentative quality of any conclusion arrived at is one of the strengths of science. It is a procedure not available to those who profess to do science but do not: the abundant and prolific pseudoscientists and crackpots.

    And there is an important difference between pseudoscience and crackpot science: The former has some of the trappings, generally the appearance and much of the language used by real science, while the latter has no pretensions at all of appearing to be science. The present German fascination with imaginary E-rays and the speculations on how dowsing is supposed to work are pseudoscience; most perpetual motion ideas and things like reflexology, palmistry, and psychometry are crackpot science.

    Scientists aren’t always right. And they don’t always follow the rules exactly. The monk Gregor Mendel, performing his experiments in the mid-1880s which established the fundamental laws of heredity, apparently altered his figures slightly so that the results were somewhat more convincing——but in the long run, despite this “honest” fiddling with his data, he was right. The fact that other researchers can, even today, replicate his experiments and thus validate his conclusions has provided us with firmly established basic scientific laws about heredity.

    Newton, Kepler, Einstein, Curie, Galileo, and hundreds of other men and women of science——though they made some errors along the way——have provided mankind with knowledge that has made life richer, fuller, and more productive.

    Science and magic are exact opposites.
