Bayesian inference and religious belief - Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science
many affiliations are nominally about adherence to doctrine but actually are more about belonging. This idea is commonplace (for example, when people speak of political “tribes”), but complications start to arise when the doctrines have real-world implications, as in our current environment of political polarization.

Cardinal Ouellet Writes Open Letter to Archbishop Viganò
Dear pontifical representative emeritus, I tell you frankly that to accuse Pope Francis of having covered up with full knowledge of the facts this alleged sexual predator and therefore of being an accomplice of the corruption that is spreading in the Church, to the point of considering him unworthy of continuing his reform as the first pastor of the Church, is incredible and unlikely from all points of view. I can't understand how you could let yourself be convinced this monstrous accusation could stand. Francis had nothing to do with McCarrick's promotions in New York, Metuchen, Newark and Washington. He removed him from his dignity as a Cardinal when a credible accusation of child abuse became apparent. I have never heard Pope Francis allude to this self-styled great adviser of his pontificate in relation to [episcopal] nominations in America, even though he does not hide the trust he gives some prelates. I sense these are not your preferences, nor those of your friends who support your interpretation of the facts. However, I find it aberrant that you take advantage of the sensational scandal of sexual abuse in the United States to inflict on the moral authority of your Superior, the Supreme Pontiff, an unprecedented and undeserved blow.

(60) Steve Baker's answer to Is it really true that the term 'software bug' was inspired from a true event when a moth created a computer glitch? - Quora
Is it really true that the term "software bug" was inspired from a true event when a moth created a computer glitch?
https://www.computerworld.com/article/2515435/app-development/moth-in-the-machine--debugging-the-origins-of--bug-.html
Steve Baker

No, no **NO** !!! …DEFINITELY NOT.

This is a classic “urban legend”. That event was considered amusing because it was the first case of an actual “bug” (as in insect) being found to cause a problem…but the word has been used to describe technical ‘glitches’ since at least the late 1800’s - probably as early as 1620 - and possibly as early as the 12th century.

One common proof that this DOESN’T relate back to the famous insect-in-the-computer is in a 1878 paper by Thomas Hughes, who was quoting Thomas Edison:

“I have the right principle and am on the right track…[it is] then that "Bugs" -- as such little faults and difficulties are called -- show themselves and months of intense watching, study and labor are requisite before commercial success or failure is certainly reached.”

So we know that Edison used the term in exactly the modern sense and that the word was known in technical circles.

The word probably originates from a Middle-English word “bugge” meaning a “Hobgoblin” - which is a mischievous kind of imp who takes joy in screwing up machinery and causing trouble of all kinds.

So when you hear the word “bug” - don’t think “insect” - think “gremlin”…which is a MUCH better origin for the term when you stop and think about it.
