Dear Biscers:
(Biscer is a mew word coined by Cindy Mason)

As you know, there are some who claim that anything that can be done
with fuzzy logic and possibility theory can be done with probability theory.

This claim is a special case of a more general claim of the form:
anything that can be done with method A can be done with method B.

A good example of this dictum is the following.

Anything that can be eaten with a spoon, e.g., soup, can be eaten with a
fork. True. The only problem is that you may run out time and patience.



As always,

Lotfi Zadeh
