Well, this is an interesting discussion. On a lighter but probably no less interesting note, there is a new book by Sharon Bertsch McGrayne, "The Theory That Would Not Die -- How Bayes' rule cracked the enigma code, hunted down Russian submarines, & emerged triumphant from two centuries of controversy." It is an amazingly detailed history of Bayes' Rule (did you know that it really should be called Laplace's Rule?) often vis-à-vis frequentism.
