Annals of anti-science

100 “Scholars of Marriage” have filed a brief with the Supreme Court supporting the states with bans on same-sex marriage. They may be scholars of marriage, but they certainly are not scholars of data, statistics or science.

This is the worst abuse of data I have ever seen. (I initially wrote “abuse of statistics”, but there is nothing resembling actual statistics in it.)

It’s not even pseudo-science. It’s anti-science.

Major multinationals pay my Love tens of millions of dollars a year to analyze data for major business decisions.  This is so bad it made her giggle. She does not giggle.

I don’t care what your views are on same-sex marriage, this is a mind-bogglingly embarrassing abuse of data. Did they not show it to one, single person who knows one, single thing about the most basic notions of statistics?

One thought on “Annals of anti-science

  1. their anti gay rhetoric and skewed data, and so called expertise would be laughable if it didn’t hurt so many people, it never ceases to amaze me on the level these people will stoop to oppress and discriminate against people who are different than them.
