How is the Philosophy of probability broken?

One of the main ways IMHO is that the frequentist probability interpretation confuses the definition of probability with the operational way in which probabilities are measured. It takes the law of large numbers as the definition of probability, which makes the conceptual edifice dangerously close to circular.

A big problem with the interpretation of Quantum Mechanics is actually disentangling the philosophy of probability from specifically quantum mechanical conceptual problems.

now that's going to take at least a pint, a bath, and an hour of thinking to come up with an answer to.

You guys are in danger of disappearing up your own arses, so a bath would be good.  I'm told that long threads are almost always the result of flame wars and there hasn't been a bit of excitement here all night!  Can someone please light a fire under these guys so I can scramble some lieutenants?
