Great article! I am a bit dissappointed that you didn't provide one of my claims as an example.
Still, you did link to an article of mine, which is more than I deserve.
Actually, your article reminds me of the introduction I wrote for my first book:
I am writing this notebook in an attempt to record my “discoveries.” I put the word “discoveries” between quotes because I may not have discovered anything at all. Which is to say, I am nearly certain that I have uncovered something of great significance, however given the nature of the human brain to find meaning among noise, and due to the fact that I have been unable to find the proper peer-reviewed journal in which to publish my findings, I have little to go on beyond my own limited ability to separate what is significant from what is not.
Be that as it may, I have decided to collect all of my research and to set it down in this notebook so that others can check my reasoning and examine my findings to determine if I have indeed uncovered something of interest. If I have not, then perhaps this notebook could serve as a warning to others, an example of how not to conduct this sort of research.
