    what does that mean?

    "Religion is to science as astrology is to astronomy."

    i haven't seen of this sentence pattern before, could you please tell me what that means?

    Re: what does that mean?

    It means that the relationships between the pairs are similar- science and astronomy are based on clear, defined principles, while religion and astrology are based on intangible beliefs.
