Bad science, good investment

Filed under: Uncategorized — davidlpf @ 3:16 am

The other night I was watching Dragons Den on the CBC. Dragons Den is a series where people who have businesses who need investment go one to pitch to five potential investors. One the pitchers were pitching an astrology system. Astrology is based on the idea that your life is determined by where the stars and planets are located on the day of your birth. The gravity from the stars would not actually effect you because it would be to weak to do anything. The further away you are from an object the less gravity it will have on an object because it obeys the inverse distance law. that is if an object is twice as far as it was in different location it will have one quarter the gravity. So a star which is light years away will have almost zero effect on an individual here on Earth. Also gravity is a vector so the gravity pulling on an object here on Earth is probably being counteracted by the gravity of an object on the other side Earth. The planets effect would be very similar as to the stars. The investor did invest in the company because astrology is held to high esteem is culture. There are a lot of people in all different cultures that do believe in astrology but that does not make it right, The investor probably will make money out of this scheme just for this fact but it is still bad science but probably a good investment.
