Bare Possibility

Elementary Bayesianism holds that for any proposition neither necessarily true nor necessarily false that one has neither evidence to believe nor evidence to disbelieve one ought to believe it as likely true as not.

But bare possibilities are Tommyrot, and the sensible person disbelieves them all.

Except for, well, the world, other minds, and so on.
