Is The Anti-Life Equation A Proper Equation?

FT6 comments • 1,761 views

According to Wikipedia, this is the formula for the evil god Darkseid’s Anti-Life Equation, currently menacing DC comics:

“loneliness + alienation + fear + despair + self-worth ÷ mockery ÷ condemnation ÷ misunderstanding x guilt x shame x failure x judgment n=y where y=hope and n=folly, love=lies, life=death, self=dark side”

Now, I may not know much about maths, let alone the higher-dimensional equations of the Fifth World – but I have to ask myself – is this actually an equation? Even if you put “Anti-Life =” at the start?
