I didn't see any hostility to any field. Bert, like many of us, objects
to people blithely and arrogantly applying possibly deep statistical
techniques of which they apparently have little understanding, with an
attitude of "Oh, it's just statistics. How hard can it be?"
I don't think anyone who knows anything about anything would classify
Bert as ignorant.

OK. Your job title is misleading. Let's say "in order to avoid
producing yet more irreproducible anthropological research" then.
