The debate if the point null hypothesis is ever literally true cannot be resolved, because there are three competing statistical systems claiming ownership of the construct. The local resolution depends on personal acclimatization to a Fisherian, Frequentist, or Bayesian orientation (or an unexpected fourth champion if decision theory is allowed to compete). Implications of Rao and Lovric’s proposed Hodges-Lehman paradigm are discussed in the Appendix.
