🗳️ Tegmark's response is... odd
I was so confused when I read Max Tegmark's response to my and Dagens Nyheter's criticism, that I had to read it twice, and then send it to some acquaintances to ensure I understood it correctly.
Tegmark pretends(?) the criticism is that the margin of error in the survey could be four percentage points, not that the response rate was four percent. If you're a professor at MIT, you understand stuff like that. (I hope!)
Each person must judge for themselves why he responds the way he does. I think Max Tegmark has ended up in election mode.
Here is his response and my thoughts on it.
