The conceptions of Bayes and Neyman-Pearson are considered in methodological literature as irreconcilable opponents as for their goals, tasks, and methods of solving statistical problems [1-3]. This article demonstrates that in some respects important for the statistical practice the methodological principles of the conceptions of Bayes (BC) and Fisher (FC), the last is ideologically close to Neyman- Pearson, reveal the similarity in positions. As an alternative to these directions of investigations an empirical conception is proposed. Let us start with some critical arguments against Bayes and Fisher's conceptions.
