In addition, all ―harms‖ suffered must eventually be seen by their victims to be justified as being for the best in this the best of all possible worlds. And, with the summum bonum involving eternal salvation and redress, its achievement must constitute nothing less than the end of all harm and the end of any further need for the moral law as an imperative. In short, from the perspective of the achieved summum bonum there can be no moral harms at all. Nor could a comprehending, sane, and sincere theist, having in mind God, the omnipotent and omniscient Judge, possibly be tempted to disobey the moral law, which makes a mockery of any idea of freedom.

Otherwise he believes that the probability of p(Q) = 1 is >1/2<1, which means that it is >1/2<1. So, he can only ever be certain that Q, when he is certain that he is certain that Q. This does not set up a regress. It means that he can only believe that Q when he is certain that Q. But if this move is not made, then how is it ever possible for A to be certain that Q? To be certain that Q, A must estimate p(Q) = 1. But to estimate, judge, perceive etc. that Q is to believe that Q. So, ―Asp(Q) = 1‖ ―Asp(Q) = >1/2<1‖, which is self-contradictory.

And none of this is improved if we replace ―equivalence‖ with ― ‖. If belief is affirmation, then the basic problem with Day‘s view is that A must either believe that Q is probably the case or be certain that Q is the case. There is no space for something in between. ―A perceives (comprehends) that Q is actually the case‖ is the central idea when belief is affirmation. But ―Q is actually the case‖ either has no place at all in Day‘s scheme or else must be reduced to ―Q is probably the case‖ or to ―(A‘s) certainty that Q is the case‖.
