Default Re: Am I understanding the analogy correctly?

The hypothesis introduces the "color" of the marbles. This, together with the sampling (from the bin), defines the whole probability. Something like

P(color) = P(color | marble) * P(marble)

The first term on the RHS is defined by the hypothesis. The second term is defined by sampling.

Hope this helps.
