New Post: "Is there a Probability for the Universe...?"
Hello all. Spring has sprung and summer is almost here! A new post on Catholic Stand: "Is there a Probability for the Universe? New Thoughts about the Anthropic Coincidences" I discuss the anthropic coincidences, those unlikely features in cosmology, physics and chemistry that are required for the existence of carbon-based life in this universe. Since ordinary (frequentist) interpretations of probability aren't appropriate in assessing these, I present a different interpretation of probability--Bayesian, based on measure of belief.
