    The best we can do in empirical science is SAMPLE our environment, and induce general principles.

    Modern statistics is founded on rigorous mathematical principles, and theorems that can be proven. It is not just guesswork.

    Statistics is a formal extension of Inductive Reasoning; a good way to think about it is that it is like applying the Scientific Method to data.

    Everyone uses Inductive Reasoning. The Scientific Method itself is Inductive in nature *not* deductive. Scientists conduct experiments, and then extend their findings to the universe as a whole. For example, scientists claim to know the mass of the electron. Has every electron been weighed? No, only a minute fraction of them have been studied. Yet, based upon the results of a tiny, tiny sample, we conclude, by INDUCTION, that all electrons everywhere have a specific mass.

    All empirical science is like this, because an experiment is nothing but examining a *sample*, and always a vanishingly small one, of the whole phenomenon, then INDUCTIVELY extending the findings to the whole. If sampling and induction invalidates Statistics, it also invalidates Physics, Chemistry, etc.... in fact, every body of human knowledge except Mathematics.

    Statistics is an indispensable adjunct to empirical science, because, in a nutshell, "Statistics is a collection of formal methods for reasoning with data inductively, in such a way that the accuracy and precision of the conclusions falls within a known numeric range."

    If your friend wants to quibble about biased sampling, you can remind him that it is the collection of the data that is the thing that all sciences and Statistics have IN COMMON. His criticism applies to Physics, too. Does the fact that experiments and their data can be collected improperly reduce Physics to "magic"? Why not?

    Your friend is being inconsistent when he accepts Empirical science while ignoring the fact that it is based upon sampling and induction, but then rejects Statistics *because* it uses sampling and induction.

    You may feed him as naturally your role in his presence would be 'servant'.

    But pet him?

    No.

    No, you may not.

    I haven't made it to organic so it's still weird to look at the formula (since it's not empirical). I'm in a pre-health post-bacc program (I graduated summa cum laude in philosophy last May).

    Definitely not unplayable, but the I found the parkour mechanics stubborn. Although the new "Climb down" feature is useful and prevents many potential mishaps, sometimes Arno seems to do what he wants.
    This would be obvious to anybody who's played the other AC games but the AI is pretty much unchanged, which is to say not very good.

    I'm Sure we can settle this amicably, but in the meantime I have found it prudent to involve my legal team. (I read between the lines and detected insincerity and condescension). Am I being over sensitive?
