Talk:Consistency of radiometric dating comes from selective reporting (Talk.Origins)
Woodmorappe is not saying that concordance is entirely the result of chance, but that there are factors that reduce the randomness somewhat. He annualizes them as totally random to show that chance concordance is quite probable but does not claim that they are totally random.
I haven't a copy of Woodmorappe's original paper, but "annualizes" looks weird. If spelt correctly, it ought to mean that the results are set out by year, which seems unlikely. Perhaps this word should be "analyses", but I'm still not sure what "analyses them as totally random" would mean. Oelphick 16:56, 29 September 2006 (EDT)
