Climate Change, the Milankovitch Cycles, and Astrology

Back almost a hundred years ago, Milutin Milankovitch got himself an idea. Using his deep time framework (scientists operate from their paradigms, they do that), he suggested that certain astronomical cycles affected the earth. His concept was not enthusiastically received until secular scientists needed to conjure up a rescuing device for their assorted schemes, such as orbital tuning, climate change, and secular ice age imaginings.

Modern astronomers and geologists have tried to use the Milankovitch cycles in numerous areas, and some of their schemes smack of astrology.

Modern astronomers and geologists have tried to use the Milankovitch cycles in numerous areas, and are even now using their Charles Darwin Club Secret Decoder Rings© to find new ways to force-fit Milankovitch's ideas into justify their own stories. Even though the "Pacemaker" paper that was used to support this thing was never any good, hey, any rescue in a storm of factlessness, huh? Evolutionism has been getting quite esoteric and unscientific lately, and some of the papers using Milankovitch's work smack of astrology. Well, why not? Astrology is just a scientific as evolutionism, so those to may as well get hitched up.
Sometimes a hunch proves to be unworkable. The Milankovitch Cycle theory has too many complications. It’s time to give it up.

In the 1920s, Milutin Milankovitch, a Serbian astronomer, mathematician and popularizer of science, had a bright idea. Knowing that certain orbital cycles drift over time, he wondered if they could influence the earth’s climate. Though not the first to think about this, he set about calculating periods where sunlight would be more likely to hit the northern latitudes more directly, thinking that those areas would heat up. Other areas might receive sunlight at a more oblique angle, becoming cooler. The cycles might even generate an Ice Age!
