Bayes and God

This is why I'm skeptical about the extent to which Bayesian approaches are useful in epistemology. Actually it isn't, it's just material for a cheap shot. But really, the trick is in setting the prior that God exists at 50%, isn't it? And, well, in all the other stuff. Anyway, Kierkegaard would not approve. (via Kevin Drum)
