Interesting study on Gauguelin data.

http://www.astrozero.co.uk/astroscience/koll1ge.pdf

Asked whether Gauquelin had excluded any category of sport, Ertel replied in the
negative, but added: “I have always been amazed that Gauquelin took every sports
category that he found in his two main reference books (sports champions are categorized
there). Gauquelin found differences among sports regarding the Mars effect, for example
basket-ball did not have much of an excess of Mars-born players. So he advised Paul Kurtz
to avoid selecting basket-ball players in the USA because he reckoned they were not likely
to have a Mars effect: the result of Gauquelin's suggestion was that Kurtz selected a large
proportion of basket ball players!”

Arno Muller, ‘Last sich der Gauquelin-Effekt bestatigen?’ Zeitschrift fur Parapsychologie
1986, 28, 87-103. NB this concluded (in English): ‘Where G’s data had to be corrected,
this left the significance of his results unaffected…there exists, in my opinion, no solid
reason that G’s findings should not be acknowledged as objective ones.’ Thus Muller has
independently validated an earlier MG data-collection.

JSE volumes 12 onwards are web-available, which includes the last two of the list
above-cited.

Debate on the subject has also seethed in The Humanist, Leonardo, Skepsis (Holland),
Astrologie in Onderzoek (Holland), Science et Vie, Psychology Today, Zeitschrift fur
Parapsychologie and The Zetetic Scholar.

Eg, the final sentence of Benski’s book The ‘Mars Effect’ (ref 14, p.145) is by Nienhuys,
averring scornfully that ‘Ertel’s post-hoc analyses are rather like tea-leaf readings…’
