Statistical Abuse

Via the National Center for Science Education: In Ken Miller's Nature (sub req.) review of Michael Behe's Edge of Evolution he writes "at the heart of his anti-darwinian calculus are numbers not merely incorrect, but so spectacularly wrong that this badly designed argument collapses under its own weight ... It would be difficult to imagine a more breathtaking abuse of statistical genetics. ... A mistake of this magnitude anywhere in a book on science is bad enough, but Behe has built his entire thesis on this error."
