Honesty is the best policy.
If we divide the human knowledge in two parts as follows, we can understand the issue much more correctly.
1. Scientific knowledge based on research, experiments and physical facts. Examples - Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Geology, Medical Science, Robotics etc.
2. Other type of knowledge is that which is inherited from our culture, history and mythology. Regarding this we do not know how effective they are as research and experimental back up for same is not available to us.
Examples - Palmistry, Numerology, Homeopathy, Astrology etc. Some people treat them as science but it is a question of debate. Even there are people who tell that these are unscientific subjects. That is also a debatable statement.
Anyway your query that which one is better Numerology or Astrology can now be answered. As they belong to same group I do not see any relative merit in them. The subjects in group 2 are more of faith and belief rather than logic.
Knowledge is power.
I don't believe in astrology because I just can't accept that planets work that way. Planets do exhibit some special properties and effects on earth, but those are completely different from the effects described in astrology.
But I respect astrologers though. They painstakingly do the math behind these planets' revolution and the Indian panchangams can accurately explain and predict eclipses and various other celestial events. Well that isn't just reserved for ourselves though. Both numerology and astrology were practiced and performed all over the ancient world in different forms. Intrigued by them?Yes I'm. Believe in them? Absolutely no.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
If you remember, I have predicted the important years for our ISCians who posted their year of birth.
No life without Sun
Although I am a firm believer of Hinduism, I don't have any trust on these two 'logies'.
Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.
Numerology is a form of numbers. generally they will take your birth date only. But not time into account. It is more generalised format. So the predictions can be correct in some cases and may not be correct also.
Believing or not is the individual's perspective.
