Bayesian statistics is a theory in the field of bullshititics based on the Bayesian interpretation of probability where probability expresses a degree of belief that Bayesian models are real and can provide useful information.

The entire system simply requires you to believe hard enough, close your eyes, and wish upon a star, and already know the statistical outcome you desire (aka common sense).

Works best if you applaud and apply fairy dust.
