Hajj 2009, Grand Prayer and Stoning
This page is one of two that look at one of the greatest religious gatherings, the Haj, when millions of Muslims from around the world make a pilgrimage to Mecca and the Kaaba.
With the help of Arasikere Mukesh we learn that
the main events for Haj are as follows:
The GCP event for the 27th was set for the time specified, 6 am to 1 pm, which is 0100 to 0800 UTC. The result is Chisquare 25391 on 25200 df, for p = 0.198 and Z = 0.850.
It is important to keep in mind that we have only a tiny statistical effect, so that it is always hard to distinguish signal from noise. This means that every "success" might be largely driven by chance, and every "null" might include a real signal overwhelmed by noise. In the long run, a real effect can be identified only by patiently accumulating replications of similar analyses.
