As far as I can tell, if the Bible has one lesson for humanity, it’s this: as far as ethics and morality are concerned, an aptitude for reading comprehension and rhetorical analysis is just as important as an altruistic worldview. A life goal of mine is to extend that lesson to statistical reasoning.

A side note related to the previous post: if there’s anything that Protestants got wrong (Calvin in particular), it’s this: poverty is not necessarily evidence of a moral failing.
