[SOLVED] weird stuff? Ok this is going to sound weird but who have I offended with a thread about statistics? Yesterday I outlined a discussion about statistics, where I had a different opinion from two other people, maths minor and engineering major about certainty and whether it is of any use in applied probability/statistics, I said yes it was, temperature and the Schrodinger equation demonstrate that even in the quantum and classical world it is possible to find certainty and in pure maths using limits it obviously is. Now I realise I probably put it in the wrong forum and it was moved, but then when it got no interest: fair enough - people don't have to post about anything. Ok I thought not a subject of interest to anyone so asked for it be closed, and instead the mods deleted it? Now I may sound paranoid, but it sounds to me that that thread upset someone, so much so that they deleted it? If that's the case explain why, if not can someone put it back and just close it? As there's nothing intrinsically evil about it as far as I can see? And you never know someone might pm me an answer. By the way the argument still rages, but they refuse to accept that prob/stat deals with certainty in any but trivial ways. Stubborn as mules. Or I and a physics grad are just dead wrong.
