Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not even talking about the substance of his conclusions (which are wrong, of course), but he backs them with something that is a crass misuse of data. I really am not exaggerating when saying that it would not take me five seconds to spot it.

This is what he is expected to do - serve the interests of his Church. It obviously has nothing to do with science. What comes out of investment houses is sort of like economic creationism. Any old rhetoric or device to make the followers feel confident in the dogma. This is little different than pagan priests who used to blow perfumed air through bellows out the mouths of statues of the Gods whose worship they oversaw. This was the pneuma and, when felt and sniffed by the worshipers, undoubtedly helped with the contributions to the temple.
