|I am neither a mathematician nor a statistician, but I have just enough knowledge to be dangerous. Since the first time I encountered the P-value, I have thought it to be more progressive than I thought useful.
Two (or more) people can examine the same data set and get different results as to the "probability" of an event. This is because the function is based on the estimate of the user on certain likelihoods. This means that the users can influence the end result.
I'm not aware of any other accepted computations based on feelings, but if the progressives find out about this one, it will become the flagship of Progressive Probability arguments.
