Re: [Geology2] Statistical Justification for Antipodal Volcanism

Statistics by their very nature cannot demonstrate causation, only correlation. Without causation you have no theory... maybe a hypothesis at best.

Dear Lin,

The purpose of this email is to present a paper entitled "Large Impacts & Contemporaneous Antipodal Mantle Plumes:  A Statistical Justification for Cause and Effect." This paper is attached in PDF form.

Statistics has its limitations, but powerful statistical evidence can go a long way toward establishing a new way to look at reality.

In many ways, what I am trying to do is to create a way to look at large impacts and their consequences in a different way ... to see reality through a different lens.

The purpose of the attached page is to provide the statistical justification for using this different lens. The next email will provide a geologically sound mechanism for understanding how the process works.

Again, I am always looking for comments.
