The article reports on the statistical systematics for earth creationists. To make their views appear as legitimate science, creationists have been working hard and part of their strategy has been to get papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Two strategies have been used by creationists to achieve this goal, first is the publishing of the review paper on intelligent design titled " Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington which bypassed the normal peer-review process, second is to sanitize the content of the paper.
