In this letter Galileo con- tended that biblical passages had no authority in scien- tific controversies, and that the language of the Bible should instead be interpreted in the light of man’s knowl- edge of natural phenomena, gained through reason and observation. Broad, following Johnson, undertakes a demonstrative reconstruction of Mill’s methods and tries to extend eliminative methods to reasonings that terminate in quantitative laws. This may be so because some of them also maintain that really everybody is a believer in God even though he may say the opposite and believe that he believes the opposite. (The strategy here is rather different from the redefinitional maneuver described above.) Hodge, for example, offers two reasons in support of such a position.

The efficiency of activity based on an awareness also cannot be used as a criterion of an awareness’ truth because the claim of efficiency also has to be confirmed: it has to be apprehended and its apprehension has to be ascertained as nonerroneous by another efficiency of activity. This third response leads to at least two philosophical questions: (1) How do we identify the fundamental laws of logic? (2) Is there such a thing as criticism or justification, as opposed to mere acceptance of a deductive practice?

This is what is sometimes called a liberty of spontaneity, a notion that suggests that the absence of external constraint is sufficient for freedom. Protagonists of kalam maintain that a conceptual analysis of what properties must be possessed by such an ultramundane cause enables one to recover a striking number of the traditional divine attributes, revealing that if the universe has a cause, then an uncaused, personal creator of the universe exists who sans the universe is beginningless, changeless, immaterial, timeless, spaceless, and enormously powerful.
