Re: Zeitgeist, the movie (2007)

This is the film that started it all for me. This documentary officially turned me into a "non-believer". First saw it on youtube and the debates haven't stopped since. Of course as can be expected, all of the religious zealots have tried to discredit the allegations made by the 1st part. ...

Re: Simulation Hypothesis

I already know where you're going with this line of reasoning. Just because there may have been a "programmer" doesn't mean the Theistic argument is verified. Even the Deists would have to prove the considerable measure of power that the programmer might possess. They still have to demonst...

Re: Simulation Hypothesis

Just remember, this hypothesis is based on the assumption of 3 possibilities: 1) The human race will go extinct before reaching a post-human stage. 2) The human race will reach a post-human stage, but won't be able to run a significant number of ancestor simulations. 3) We are most certainly living...

Re: Simulation Hypothesis

Allright so IF and only IF reality is a computer simulation... then you're assuming there must have been a programmer for such a version of reality? Not trying to sound rude with any of this, I just need a clarification of your perspective. BTW I'm referring to an almost completely indistinguishable...

Re: Simulation Hypothesis

if there is a simulation if there is a programmer then ... stating there is no programmer, no programmers, and all of your stories are but a myth" ... is wrong. We're still dealing with hypothetical situations here. We're far from proving that reality is truly a simulation. Plus to assume that...
