Witch-Hunts. and. Probabilities. Witch-hunts are investigations and probes that
are designed to root out “bad” people, whether witches, drug dealers, or terrorists
, with the ultimate purpose of protecting innocent people. The problem is that
witch-hunts normally snag more innocent than guilty people. And worse, due to
the laws of mathematics, witch-hunts snag mainly the innocent. Consider a witch-
hunt that is implemented via a test given to everyone in a region populated with ...

The slogan references the fact that people today really need no introduction to
Salem: it is known nationally—and even internationally—as the site of the famous
seventeenth-century witch hysteria and the current epicenter for all things witch-
related. Indeed, in recent years, it's hard to toss a brochure in Salem without
hitting some kind of a witch; some of Salem's witches are animatronic and spooky
, others are more sober mannequins accompanied by didactic panels; still others

Western Europe observed certain rites for rain−making and for causing or
blasting fertility. This fact was recognized in the papal Bulls formulated against

of fertility. The celebrated Decree of Innocent VIII, which in 1488 let loose the full
force of the Church against the witches, says that 'they blight the marriage bed,
destroy the births of ...

evangelical preacher Thomas Naogeorg (1508-1563) supported the popular
demands for witch-hunts and urged the magistrate to extend the persecutions
already in process to include a kind of regulation of the weather (Jerouschek,
1992).
