Did I say anything of the sort? It does seem to be your position, however, that anything which could be seen as falsifying your grand Theory of Everything is by definition pseudoscience.

Er - iconography IS an established methodology, and a very useful one with a wide range of applications. Have you honestly never heard of it? I'm flattered you'd think I thought it up, but you give me far too much credit. And what about the big square butt on that headless ibex?

That is an astoundingly limited view of science. This explains a lot.

The classification of the images is a non statistical question. Do you need to "derive a numerical confidence estimate" to tell you whether the car you're driving is a Volkswagen or a Porsche? Or do you judge according to the vehicle's attributes?

By the way, I've been meaning to ask you about that ibex with a big square butt. You know, the headless one? Thoughts?
