You miss the point. You can still agree with (A) and (B) and believe that
Shakespeare = Bacon. The point is,
(A) It is improbable that Bacon wrote Macbeth
(B) It is probable that Shakespeare wrote Macbeth
does not imply
(C) Shakespeare <> Bacon
whereas by Leibniz it should. That's all. It may make you happier to put
"there is strong/weak evidence that" or "everyone dis/believes that"
instead of "It is im/probable that".
