author of Garnet Lacey (paranomal romance) and the Vampire Princess of Saint Paul (young adult)
World Science has an article that shows that vampires can't exist, mathematically speaking. Check it out: Math vs. Vampires: Vampires Lose".
They used geometric progression to disprove vampires - - - that's what we get when we let physicists try their hands at math - bah.The two assumptions they make: #1 - all victims of vampires become vampires & #2 all vampires must feed at least once a month and all their victims necessarily perish (become vampires) are . . .Illogical and not based on vampire fiction - even ancient vampire fiction.
Good point.So, math-guy... can vampires be disproven by math?
As far as I know the existence of vampires more simply can be disproven by physiology.Mathematically, I don't think you can disprove the existence of Vampires through population statistics given the amount of variables you'd have to arbitrarily fix.Of course, I also didn't write an article about it . . .
The Ghosts section of the article is even more of a joke. Even in the skewed movie version that they were working with, (Ghost), they are basing their contention about ghosts walking on the floor as being physics driven, when in fact at one point Swayze's character falls through the floor, precisely because he is not physically interacting with it. Ghosts only have an interaction with the physical world, in that story, by virtue of their expectations (i.e. "I will walk on the floor because I expect to") and through a great deal of concentration and emotional investment (as when Swayze knocks things around with the zapping "whoosh" noise). Even using their own example, their contention doesn't hold up.
