A Note about That Lancet Study
I'm sure that my fellow wingnuts have heard of another study by the same team that came up with improbable numbers of civilian casualties a few years ago. We can't consider this to be a scientific result.
The scientific method is not a matter of “Has this been published in a really prestigious journal?” (contrary to what some people appear to think); it's a matter of “Has this been replicated?” As far as I know, this hasn't been. If it were true, others would have seen the same phenomena by now.
I don't know what the cause of the discrepancy is but I'd like to know how they hired the people who were supposedly taking the survey.
