Improbable Defence of Multiple Coincidence: A science problem requiring solution

Dec. 18, 2016 6:01 am

When it comes to the problem of a supposedly independent replication of a prior published discovery, science cannot tell us how many coincidences sum to a number that would render the replicator's defence of multiple coincidence improbable. Moreover, how many routes for knowledge contamination sum to a number that makes it more likely than not that at least one was taken? HERE

'Nullius in Verba': On sale HERE. The ideal present for the genuine scientist, skeptic, historian or sociologist.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
