Comment on Is Bayesian Inference a Religion? by Thomas Hoskyns Leonard
https://normaldeviate.wordpress.com/2013/09/01/is-bayesian-inference-a-religion/comment-page-1/#comment-16310
Tue, 29 Jul 2014 13:54:58 +0000http://normaldeviate.wordpress.com/?p=458#comment-16310thank you for your comments, Entsophy. I am really not that bizarre. For further insights into Bayesian academia, please read A Personal History of Bayesian Statistics by Thomas Hoskyns Leonard (Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews, 2014 with a link to further chapters on my website. For a recital of my poem ‘Wherefore Dennis?’ please google the Youtube collection ‘The Leith Walk Rhymers’. For further fun and games,, google ‘reverb Dennis Lindley and my interview The Life of a Bayesian Boy’ in Statistics Views. My Bayesian History refers to my correspondence with Deborah Mayo regarding her, and Michael Evans, refutation of Birnbaum’s proof of the Likelihood Principle, Now that was bizarre! Love and best wishes Thomas Hoskyns Leonard

Probability free statistics looks a lot like frequentist statistics, except it ignores probability theory entirely. So while […]
