Fuzzy logic is not religion. You won't go to Hell for not using
it. Fuzzy logic is a collection of technologies which has its
strengths and weaknesses.

"Though the axiomatic basis of FL looks sound, I still can't help
wondering if it isn't one of those elaborate jokes that academics
are so fond of."

Personally, I tend to think of fuzzy logic (and company) less as
an alternative for probability, replacement for PIDs or
competitor with deductive logic than as a sometimes convenient
method of sculpting a response surface (whether by hand or
automatically, as through fuzzy c-means).
