well, may be those were mediocre astrology students who wondered how a palmist predicted stuff.
over thousands of years astrology is more evolved and accurate.
keeping aside accuracy, people need whats useful for them, not just accurate.
if you tell them they\'ve a problem or will have problem, whats the fun in it ?
you should be able to foresee how and where the problem comes from and also suggest a suitable remedy to overcome it or reduce its effect.
this is clearly missing in sciences evolved in west, like western astrology.
they dont believe in past lives and past karma, so they can never tell you how to clear your past karma which is blocking you now.
so, palmistry is limited only till predicting, but not curing, where as in astrology you can see whats root cause behind a karma like go into past lives of a person too.
also for people who dont have time/date of birth etc, horary can be helpful.
palmistry, card reading can be learnt for fun but seriously cannot help humans solve their problems
whats the fun in naming a disease but not curing it ?
even astrology is not able to cure many problems, because nature doesnt allow humans to dominate everything but astro is better than other sciences.
palmistry or card reading may also evolve in future and may predict a person\'s karma level and his past lives etc, and suggest remedies but they\'re not that much evolved right now
