Thread: How Claire Lehman (a psychology student dropout) has the scientific knowledge of an average 9th grader.

1) She doesn't understand that science is not scientism.
2) She uses charlatan tactics to distort what Prof Taleb has to say not realizing it is well known as strawman arguments, a standard fallacy.
3) She claims to be fighting identity politics but attacks Prof. Taleb as a child of privilege.
She defends markets and claims that profits = exploitation.
4) She doesn't understand that statistics is about sample sufficiency, not anecdotal claims.
5) She has no notion what correlation is
6) She never visibly took a course in philosophy of science. Popperian falsification does not work with statistical claims.
7) she attacks "contemporary feminism" then blames Prof. Taleb for attacking a female.
7) She cites army/IQ results when Prof. Taleb has shown that these are performances in tests, called "circular".
8) I mean she really, really does not understand statistics.
9) She attacks universities for deplatforming then treatens to sue Joseph Normann and here she deletes this tweet.
10) She poses false dichotomies another big fallacy unacceptable by academia: the blank slate is wrong therefore genetic determinism for IQ.
11) She calls Taleb a science denier for saying linear correlation should be limited to linear relationships (statistics 101- I am a PhD student in statistics).
