Classical theory of probability deficiencies that were later proven by empirical testing, "the principle of rational belief" under which likeness "physical" between events often leads to association and equal probability "insufficient rational principle" under which an analyst when which can not dissociate between events is likely to produce equal probability it associates aceastora These are the most important "critical" during the approach to classical random phenomena and their associated probability distribution.
