Bayes' theorem is a theorem prescribing how probabilities are to be changed in the light of new evidence.

One problem concerns how to ascribe objective prior probabilities to hypotheses.

For many, subjective Bayesianism is not strict and have unfortunate consequences.

Bayesian theory is not scientific reasoning.
