14 But if the order of the world is to be explained by many gods, then some explanation is required for how and why they cooperate in producing the same patterns of order throughout the Universe. This becomes a new datum requiring explanation for the same reason as the fact of order itself. The need for further explanation ends when we postulate one being who is the cause of the existence of all others, and the simplest conceivable such – I urge – is God. Finally there is the objection that we can pass no judgement on the value of P(e/k).

The first of these is the ontological argument according to which the statement ‘There is no God’ is selfcontradictory. Since the statement is clearly coherent, this argument makes an impossible claim. The second argument is from the world to God, but one which claims to be deductive. Aquinas argues that from the fact that the world has certain features, it follows, deductively, that it was created by God. But since it is clearly possible that the world was not created by God, I cannot see that this argument works either.

But if I am wrong, that does not damage my claim that there is one true set of criteria. They are those of my group, which – I am quite sure – are those of all who will hear or read this paper. We all have the modern scientific criteria of what is evidence for what, and to say that we have these criteria is just to say that we believe that the results which they yield about what is probable to be correct results. If we thought that there are no true criteria of what is evidence for what, we would think it just as likely that if we jump from a window we will fly, as that we will fall to the ground.
