I typed that in a rush, I did not mean it was easy to make the numbers mean different things.

It IS, however, not too difficult to present the numbers in such a way as to be entirely misleading. While someone who understand statistics and numbers will be able to see through your farce, the general layman will not.

It seems to me that any material that can get itself published in a biology textbook and in several prominent places that isn't wholly accepted by the main scientific community would not last long, as peer review is an extremely important part of any science.
