In this attached paper, I discuss application of Bayes 'theorem, as a mathematical relationship, to diagnosis, which is a process in the real world. This application is not correct, I argue, because the mathematical term, probability, does not correspond to evidence during diagnosis.
Please review and comment on this paper.
Thanks.
