He admits that Laplace’s choice of example is unfor-tunate, but he quotes Laplace himself stating that this particular calculation omits relevant informa-tion from celestial mechanics.

As for the 5, E.T. Jaynes, although a physicist, was one of the great 20th century proponents of Bayesian thinking. See here for a wealth of information, including some autobiographical essays.
