There is nothing phony about this and only a phony would think this a phony
"set up". 

To be clear I am:-
a) inviting people to defend, articulately, inductive probability;
b) taking the position that there is no such thing.

There is nothing inherently "phony" about this. 

What is truly phony is to reply to the argument offered without giving any
articulate defence of "inductive probability".

It's not very funny either.
