LUNAR EFFECT
« on: February 26, 2016, 02:17:13 PM »

Are you effected by the full moon?
Do you have unexplained spasmodic lapses of idiocity
Only to go outside to calm down and find that sure enough there is a full moon.
Have you ever felt like you wanted to explode for no apparent reason.
Yes its the lunar effect.
And dispite many attempts to disprove its existence, oh yes its there.
Are you effected by the full moon?

There is no scientific evidence that proves a lunar lunacy (full moon) effect exists.

That well may be true, Kim; however, I have noticed over many years that it seems to affect some.

When someone does something that seems extraordinarily odd,  and I look skywards for help from above, lo and behold there's a full moon. :angel:

You made the claim, you provide the reference.

Besides that, there is no scientific study that supports lunar lunancy..so I don't need to google.

Sam is correct.

Dr Karl

....But in our modern technological society, does the Moon make people go mad, does it increase numbers at hospital emergency rooms or does it increase self-harm? Nope, the hard evidence says it doesn't happen.

One theory that's been put forward to explain this non-existent lunar-lunacy effect is that the Moon has a huge effect on the tides, which are made of water. Therefore, runs the biological-tides theory, because we are mostly water, the Moon must have an effect on us.

This so-called 'theory' is wrong in a few ways.

First, the Moon-tides thing happens because the oceans are large, and made of a liquid. They would still happen if the liquid was freezing liquid hydrogen, room temperature mercury, or hot liquid iron. It doesn't have to be water.

Second, tides happen only over large expanses, not within the small dimensions of a human body.

Third, the ocean tides still happen if the Moon is full, new or half-full. The Moon still has a gravitational effect even if the Sun doesn't fully light it up for us.

A better theory to explain it all is selective recall. It's a busy night, and you look out the window to see that rare animal, the full Moon. You put two and two together to make five, and assume that the full Moon made your night busy.

This belief that the full Moon massively affects human behaviour is a cultural fossil. It's a memory of the effect that we would party on a full Moon, way back when we had no artificial light.

But in our modern society, it's just moonshine.

Why would there be another side of - scientific studies show no prove of the lunar lunacy effect?

You can post some propaganda if you like.
