140. My gosh
your response indicates to me that not only have you not read every paper ever written, but I doubt you've read many at all!

"Just like your claim that "many peer reviewed articles that are published later turn out to be wrong" is a lie."

Articles come out contradicting the findings of previous articles all the time. Pathetic claim on your part. Next.

"And, yes, reviewers do consider the validity of the data when they review papers. They consider the validity of the statistical methods, and the interpretation of the data. "

All of which is meaningless if the original data was tampered with. They don't go to your lab and read through your lab notebook to make sure you haven't altered anything. So your statement is incorrect, in other words.

You're trying to make up a strawman and argue against him. How is that going for you?

You also have yet to explain how less transparency is a good thing.
