Post Very powerful evidence for astrology, anyone help verify?

Are any cosmologists or astrophysicists able to refute these claims?
Might be difficult, experts only please.

I haven't watched this video yet, though I will. Before I do, however, I want to make a point.

Unless the individual in it has accredited qualifications and/or is a member of the International Astronomical Union, then anybody else, regardless of their academic background is qualified to refute any claims made.

I will watch it now and give you my opinion. In the even that the above is not the case (e.g. postgrad degree in cosmology etc.) then if I cannot refute the claims made myself, I'll ask my milkman what he thinks and post his response here.

Ok - I've seen the video and I have to agree with one point you made.

It is indeed very powerful evidence, but unfortunately not for astrology.

Having observed the behaviour of the individual featured, I find it compelling evidence to support the hypothesis that drugs are bad, m'kay?

I have never seen someone take so much shit from a curtain.

That cheap peice of tat is absolutely owning him, he seems exhausted after 30 seconds...

So... if you want to avoid having your house robbed by hippies, put up a curtain in front of the door!
Instead, why don't you go get me a cup of coffee with so much fake sugar that the coffee itself gets cancer?

Oh, maybe we can get curtains.

I was just looking at that guy's channel... and you know what? He's made in total 70 videos of which only 7 have over 100 views. And if that's not all too bad, he has another channel:

http://www.youtube.com/user/RTRRTV

With 600 videos. Only like 80 of them have over 100 views. He's made about 600 videos that only a few dozen of people have watched! How high do you figure he's been for the last couple of years?

Didn't really catch any of that, I was more interested in the battle of the wills with the curtain.

Okay, I just want to know how drunk you have to be to get the idea that the camera should be placed behind a curtain when you are filming..... It's just a really awkward situation, and there is no point in doing it. I really want to ask him why he did this, yet I'm afraid I'd get nothing but mumbles and numbers from this awful man!
