Part A: Anti-Astrological Polemic 25 Christian polemicists naturally took up arguments that were already available which derived from the Greco-Roman tradition of anti-fatalist debate, such as: I) The argument of practical impossibility: that it is not possible to exactly determine the horoscope (see below chapter 2) II) The argument of different destinies: that discrepancies occur in the lives of people who have the same horoscope (see below chapter 3) III) The argument of common destinies: that identical fates occur in the lives of people who have different horoscopes (see below chapter 4) IV) The argument of νο' μιμα βαρβαρικα' : that since characteristics, manners and customs of whole peoples and nations are the same, they are not determined by each individual’s horoscope (see below chapter 5).
