"Just because I try to be rational doesn't mean I think I'm a god.

Well, sure, I want to be a god when I grow up, but that is like a totally different issue from that first part.

Except that both goals involve Bayesian methods." Thanks for pointing me in the direction of those Bayesian methods. I have been consumed with studying them recently. They will, perhaps, replace even the scientific method as the poster child for science one day. The math is the easy part - accepting it as a philosophy is what I'm sure is difficult for some.
