Rate Of False Positives

Why I disagree with Andrew Gelman's critique of my paper about the rate of false discoveries in the medical literature

With a colleague, I wrote a paper titled, “Empirical estimates suggest most published medical research is true” which we quietly posted to ArXiv a few days ago. I posted to the ArXiv in the interest of open science and because we didn’t want to delay the dissemination of our approach during the long review process. I didn’t email anyone about the paper or talk to anyone about it, except my friends here locally.
