A new "study" by Gregory Paul has been brought to our attention by Bill Dembski . As you can see from Dembski's blog, the "study" is being given significant media attention.
The "study" appears in The Journal of Religion and Society.
The journal "promotes the study of religious groups and beliefs among the various peoples of the world, past and present, with emphasis on American religions and the Western religious traditions." Does the "study" fit in this journal? Consider the journal's mission and the other articles .
Now, several of our readers and commentators consider themselves scientists or very knowledgeable about science. Of course, anyone on the internet can make that claim, so let's put them to the test. Here's the study.
I'd like to see our critics tell us a) whether this study is science and b) whether this study is any good. If it is not good, what's wrong with it?
If they go silent on us, I'll have a look this weekend.
