I Can’t Do It Any More
I’m done arguing it.
I’m finished. I can’t do it any more.
Statistical analysis of large data sets is not something that you can understand by reading a blog post. It’s something that requires a lot of actual mathematics knowledge and a lot of actual domain experience.
I’m sorry. I know, that sounds like an Appeal to Authority. It’s not. You can gain the experience. It’s not easy. It requires about six years of serious postgraduate work.
I know. That sucks. It would be so much easier if you could just look up how to do this on the Internet.
And I’m done trying to convince you that you’re wrong. I don’t have the patience any more. Indeed, I’ve gotten to the point where the only patience I have left on this topic is “not hitting people with a shovel when they start talking about how much they don’t understand about this topic”. That’s not healthy.
So you win, bullshit artists. Go forth, and convince the gullible to cause the needless deaths of newborns, the immunocompromised, and the elderly.
I have to live with my abdication of the field.
