The Simulation Experiment

The Simulation Experiment is both a scientific experiment and a statistical analysis, ran by a computer program that generates randomized versions of the Nazca great circle map. The program generates many random versions (iterations) and computes a statistical comparison between the randomized results and those of the Nazca great circle map hypothesis.

The program used in the random simulation experiment is available for anyone to use. The newer, user friendly version is hosted here:

Please note that this program requires a significant amount of computing power, to perform thousands of mathematical calculations. As such, it is not suitable for running on a smartphone. It may run with some degree of success on a high-powered tablet, however, for best results, it’s most suited to running on a desktop or laptop computer.

The legacy version, referenced in the article, is also available for reference purposes. It uses the exact same calculations. The only difference is the user interface. It can be accessed here:
