Concerning a analysis in Stat Istics
someone (under John M. name) had defend the Mendel´s data authenticity/ not manipulated where the following p-values:
(10) 0.9457, 0.8694, 0.8680, 0.7414, 0.5994, 0.9457, 0.9986, 0.9511, 0.8983, 0.99997
He argues that all values are sufficiently near to 1, Mendel did not cheat (!).
However the conclusion is plenty oppose : H= -2 *Sum p*log(p) = 2.048
p-value is so low as 0.000´000´1 (chi-square, 20 d.f.)
Fisher was right in supposing that there were, accidentally or deliberately, data manipulation by the Mendel´s team .

How dangerous common sense is sometimes in Probability/Statistics.
