    About as unbiblical as it gets, really.

    I've been working 17 years. During that 17 years I have been wrote up four times. All four times at the same employer, all within 60 days and all during the recession when labor was on sale. They never thought of offering me a lower wage. They just looked for a chance to kill me with all the power available.



    I'm more of an ass than I used to be but kids raised like this would have been strong enough to let it go. I've been depressed and self-destructive over this for well over two years.

    I'm an ass.

    A combination of confirmation bias and the fact that horoscopes are written deliberately vague. And the fact that you haven't really thought about where horoscopes come from.

    Quite easy in fact because that's the only way astrology actually "works". All data shows that it's a pointless, irrational, unjustified belief.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That is your assumption. Everything you have said I have thought about. Maybe its more obvious for me because as Libra I tend to only get along with other Libras. Not always just alot.
