Bad Science refuted

A friend posted links to few blog posts that break down the inaccuracies in the article I linked to yesterday. I found one or two myself, too.

This one is the most straightforward:

This one is a little more technical:

Eric Cressey on the subject:

And this one is kind of harsh at times but also good:

Nice to see such a wealth of people stepping up and weighing in; bad science shouldn't sit unchallenged.
