Bayesian statistics and salt
- Hello all.
I believe I'm about finished making changes to my webpage
for the near future. I've gotten interested in other things. But in its
current state in has a number of changes from my last posting here.
It now works from the Greek text, is fully and explicitly Bayesian in
its methodology, and had references listed. Its goals are also more
limited. For example, I no longer think that Mark rejected old covenant
law. Rather I argue that some of the things he wrote could have been
interpreted that way later, by say 1st century Gnostics.
I think the exercise of applying Bayesian statistics to a New Testament
question was quite useful. At least for me, it served to separate some
of the wheat from the chaff. Some things I had argued I found that I
could not make an explicitly Bayesian case for, while I could make a
case for other things. Where I could not make a Bayesian case, I was
probably reading in to the text rather than from it. Of course, that may
still be the case, if my argument is missing key information.
So, here is the page
