Consider, for instance, the following really weak plausibilistic argument against the doctrine of the Trinity: There are infinitely many positive numbers n, and hence for any given n, the probability that God is exactly n persons is low; hence, the probability that God is exactly three persons is low. That is indeed a plausibilistic argument, but a very weak one. One might as well say that there are infinitely many positive numbers n, and hence for any given n, the probability that I have n fingers is low; hence, the probability that I have ten fingers is low. The argument against the Trinity is surely going to be trumped by the Sources, and the argument about the fingers is surely going to be trumped by empirical observation.
