The dual role of probability in application as chance and evidence' implications for diagnosis

In this attached paper, I point out that probability plays a dual role in application as chance in referring to an outcome in an individual instance and as evidence in referring to outcomes in a population of instances. Thus it is not able to represent evidence in a given patient during diagnosis and is not suitable for it in practice.
Please review and comment on this paper.
Thanks
