I actually believe sorry for the theists and their empty makes an attempt to extract cause from unreasonable arguments. This e-book is an extended record of logical fallacies sincerely written by means of the writer, for the writer, in an try to convince/brainwash himself into believing the stupidity proposed.
This form of book--and the experiences that stick to it, all [coincidentally] by way of fundamentalist theists--make you need to lose religion in humanity and our potential to reason.
I'm comfortable i did not purchase it (it used to be lent to me via a christian friend), and also you cannot both. with a purpose to indulge your interest, attempt to locate it someplace at no cost (library perhaps?). it might be extra worthy if rather than paperback it got here in bathroom paper format.
FYI, I needed to upload 1 celebrity simply because Amazon will not allow me submit the overview with zero.

4. the doctrine of chances By the end of the eighteenth century, however, probability theory had a more controversial application. In his Ars Conjectandi of 1713, Jacob Bernoulli had discussed not only gambling problems but mathematical uncertainty in everyday life. Just as the calculus of probability could be applied to the throw of a die or a hand of cards, he argued, so it could be extended to other forms of uncertainty, such as illness or the weather. Bernoulli maintained that a belief in a cause or theory varied in exactly the same way as the observed ratio of favorable to unfavorable cases.
Galileo discussed observational errors in detail in his 1632 discussion of the nova of 1572. ) He recognized that discrepancies between observations of the nova and its real position were more likely to be small than large, and that overestimates and underestimates were equally likely. Stigler doubts that Cotes’s proposal, published in 1722, six years after his death, had much influence, noting that its earliest citation was by Laplace in 1812 (Stigler 1986, p. 16). 16 eighteenth century, astronomers started to turn to the probability calculus for a more systematic approach to the combination of observations.
This enabled him to present not only values for the least-squares coefficients, but probabilistic estimates for their errors too. 2 Despite its relatively complicated form – e−x compared with the e−|x| distribution Laplace was using in 1774 – the assumption that errors were normally distributed actually simplified the mathematics of inverse probability. Laplace read Gauss’s work around 1810 and was immediately provoked to rejoin the fray. First, he used his central limit theorem to generalize Gauss’s justification of the normal law to any situation in which large numbers of small and independent causes operated.
