Are numerology and astrology considered to be sciences by the scientific community?

A: The short answer is that numerology and astrology are not considered to be sciences by the general scientific community; rather, the general scientific community considers them to be pseudosciences, because they do not comply with the scientific method.
"Numerology and numerological divination was popular among early mathematicians such as Pythagoras, but is no longer considered to be part of mathematics and is now regarded as pseudoscience or quackery by most mathematicians. This is similar to the historical development of astronomy from astrology, and that of chemistry from alchemy [...]"
*Numerology: the study of the supposed occult influence of numbers on human affairs.
Incredible what you can find by searching Google Answers. The part above is only 2 paragraphs from the original and complete answer. By the way what about this one? More carbon emissions from riding a bicycle than taking the train?
The price offered for this question was US$25.00 - not insignificant. The more money you offer and the more complete and detailed will be their answer.
