"...is only based on our imperfect observations and also predicts dark, matter, dark energy and dark flow, of which a lot of scientists are still very sceptical of.. remember 'aether'?" - Yes. I absolutely agree with you about that.

Can it be less than 1 then? Or it's 1 if there is some probability and 0 if it's absent?

What does P stand for in your formulas? Probability or proof? I guess it's probability. If yes, then can it be more than 1?

@cobaltduck - I have read about this paradox about half a year ago, but I don't quite understand where you see the connection between the Raven paradox and my question. Can you, please, elaborate?

comment What's the difference in meaning between “evidence” and “proof”?
"In some fields of enquiry (Law, or the Sciences) a preponderance of evidence, and a lack of evidence to the contrary, would be regarded as a proof of some statement or assertion" - So, if while I were sleeping in a car with an open window and somebody stabbed a pedestrian on the street to death and threw the knife into my car and ran away, and there were no evidence that I was not the murderer, then that would be considered as proof that I was the killer?! But that would be a terribly wrong judgment then!
