I'm not arguing with the math; I'm arguing with how the philosophy is often applied. Consider the condition where my prior is greater than my evidence for all choices I've looked at, the number of possibilities is unknown, but I still need to make a decision about the problem? As the paper I was originally referencing mentioned, what if all options are false?

You are not arguing, you're just being incoherent. For example,

my prior is greater than my evidence for all choices I've looked at

...that sentence does not make any sense.

what if all options are false?

Then the option "something else" is true.
