If you use p=0.05 to suggest that you have made a discovery, you will be wrong at least 30% of the time. If, as is often the case, experiments are underpowered, you will be wrong most of the time.
And given the low power of most psychology experiments I am not surprised by this result.
And, while no raging fan of Rome's bureaucracy, I haven't ever met a monk or priest that wasn't a walking copy of the Beatitudes.
