More Comments on That Lancet Study
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
An isolated study (the last similar report was from the same people) is never extraordinary evidence.
All the other complaints about this study are commentary on the first two. (In possibly-related news, a team of researchers have claimed that Israel is the least neurotic nation on Earth. Talk about extraordinary claims …)
Much of the rhetoric defending the study resembles John Campbell editorials on J. B. Rhine. (The statistical techniques used are standard … The critics are merely expressing their prejudices … etc.). Maybe there could be a CSICOP-type organization to investigate similar possible bullbleep.
