SUO: Re: Logic & Programming Languages
As usual, CSP had an answer to that question:

He said that reasoning about probability is not a special
kind of reasoning. It is just logical reasoning about a
different subject matter -- namely, probability.
So in this case, you are correctly reasoning that the
probability is 50%. Therefore, you can logically expect
to get heads 50% of the time or tails 50% of the time.
