Fortran must die
I agree with that point jake. I was saying it was heresy to many to interpret parameters in a model that were not signficant statistically. So statistical signficance test were needed. There is a school, Cook and Campell were in it, that argues that test of signficance and the null hypothesis associated with it should be abandoned or at least have less influence than they do now, but much of the literature I have seen in social sciences does not reflect this.
