In my opinion numerology belongs in the same category as Tarot, Astrology, Magic, Mystery the Paranormal and any other similar mumbo jumbo and is totally unrelated to science. However, if some people wish to live their lives without placing one foot in front of the other before consulting some such oracle, as long as it does no harm, then it is fine by me.

It is a form of statistics. It is formed on the basis of data collected and as such it is not a science and its reliability is very low.

It is no science at all. It is just a method derived from Indian astrology. One who propounded it has written in the preface tht it was learnt from India. Where he got this theory is not found anywhere in the Indian system of prophesy. Certain misinterpretation from what he learnt and extended them on some unknown vague theories which none of our scriptures support.
Then the calender date which he bases the theory, has itself been modified many times.
The only that a number repeats in ones life time is true to some extent, may be that he might have gethered from some of the lessons he got with some Indian Master of Astrology.

It is not a complete science.Though sometimes the predictions come true but many a time they go haywire.When combined with Astrology it gives good results!

Numerology is based on the numerical viberations in your name and birthdate and Astrology is calculated using planets and their placements in the various houses at the time and place of your birth.

Not a science at all.All mystical subjects are matter of faith and love,rather than science.They start where science comes to an stand-still.
