I started working on an outline for a rebuttal paper in this thread, but decided to move it to Google Docs so I could format it better. Here is the link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OfJ ... stake president=sharing

It's an incomplete mess right now, as I decided to substantially rework it in light of all the good information people have posted in the last few days. Comments, suggestions, criticisms and pies are all welcome (as long as the last is banana cream). I'll bump this when I'm done with a first draft of the outline.

Okay, it's a lesser mess, but I think it shows the framework of the argument. Not yet a completed outline, but would appreciate comments on the general framework.

1) Good on you for doing this!

2) I would avoid mentioning Carrier. Even if he's a great teacher of Bayesian methods there are other good teachers who don't come with his baggage.

3) I think what you're preparing is much too long. Marshalling a vast army against the Dales is implicitly admitting that they have a serious case that needs a massive rebuttal. They're small time. A couple of cops can just round them up.
