Random thought about how epidemiology is analyzed

It just occurred to me that if physics were done the same way that epidemiology is done, then most of the people involved in the Higgs boson research would, as their educational background in the subject, have just read Stephen Hawking’s books and done a few college course level labs.

One possible corollary of that might be that they would not have discovered the Higgs boson as now claimed.  More likely, however, is that they would have “discovered” it, as well as a hundred other particles that do not exist, every time they ever collected data.

That is all.
