Any truth to pointy eggs being cockerels?

I was wondering if there is any truth to the old wives tale about a pointy egg will be a cockerel and a more rounded egg will be a pullet?? Any experiences with this? I did have a hatch with one very pointy egg and it did turn out to be a cockerel.

It’s not true.

but hey, one of the most popular threads right now on this website is someone hanging nails and washers on a string above their chicks and their incubating eggs to see if the string swings in a circle or a straight line because the “cockerel’s magnetism is different than the pullet’s”. So go ahead and believe what you like, in the end you gonna have to cull 50% of your hatches no matter what.

So the one on the bottom will not be a guaranteed cockerel?
