It is true that I don't understand the probability distribution of intercessory prayer as it applies to random people with medical issues, would you be so kind as to share your data on that with us.

Yes, your routine misrepresentations are tedious. Nevertheless, I can share a link to the methodology: here 'tis.



:eh: That doesn't help your case, it just makes mine.

First, it reiterates what I said, a trial is supposed to give he medicine to some and not to others, and know which is which. But that's hard to do when anyone can give the "medicine" - and we have no idea of what that distribution looks like - or even if the effect is linear.

Then, it goes on to say that the people doing clinical trails are untrustworthy - they have a strong tendency to only report on the trials that say what they want to hear.
