Re: McKay peer reviewed article on Bible Codes published in Statistical Science.
Because McKay's paper was not reviewed by those that he was criticizing, it was not peer reviewed.
Er, not so. Peer review is a review by people qualified to judge the merits and completeness of the arguments and the validity of the conclusions. It is not necessarily review by those whose work is criticized. In fact, it seldom is review by those whose work is criticized because there is a prima facie case for conflict of interest.
