  • Possible ways of knowing: testimony, authority, revelation, mystical visions, scientific method.
  • Observational experience is a crucial part of scientific knowledge.
  • The experience must be objective and communicable in public language.
  • Scientific theories must logically agree with known physical truths or well-established physical laws.
  • No matter how much logical deduction and mathematical analysis is used, the scientific theory must be checked against the real world to confirm the theory.
