It is, by definition. *((ONE definition you happen to choose - JM))* *(JM:)"...rather a sophisticational ways of arriving at conclusions by ANY ways we may, or may not even know (com - putare). * That is not computability, but provability, or inductive inference, which are indeed NOT universal. There are as many ways to get conclusion than there exist thinking creatures. That is why Church thesis is truly miraculous. Limiting us on the arithmetical reality, all theories gives different theorems, but for computability (on any effective domain) all languages gives exactly the same class of computable functions.
