Maybe the wrong tool (logic) is being used for the job.
HOw about this.
1) probability of choosing any one point in [0,1] is zero. i.e.
the probability of being chosen for EVERY point in [0,1] is zero.
2) But every time we choose A POINT in [0,1] just by the virtue
of going through the motion of choosing a point, a point whose
probability of being chosen was zero, will be chosen.
Ditto for the belief system of an individual. THe only reason
we have the problem is that one is discrete (supposedly) and
the other isn't. THe problem is the insufficiency of the
The facts are that it's not unreasonable for people to believe
that they want to only hold on to only true beliefs and yet
admit the possibility of being wrong. There's nothing wrong
with this system. What is wrong is in using logic inappropriately.
Maybe that's the reason for the proliferation of many-valued
logics, including fuzzy logic.
