This is an excellent paper!
One of my pet peeves is people misusing statistics or "science" to prop up
unsupported claims. I have often argued on the Extropians List against
Lott's gun claims, the use of suspect profiling, the "statistical"
Simulation Argument, and other bad statistics. People just don't know how
to apply logic, the scientific method, or proper statistical methods.
