@generic_man
vector graphics are also made of pixels my uneducated friend, only difference is that there's a formula in the image that allows it to re-create cells so the picture doesn't get f'ed up as you zoom in. It's hard to create images though, usually it's text and shapes. Everything you see in screens is pixels. tiny dots that the eye can't detect from far away.

peace :)

Not all computers use pixels to create images. There is a type of pictures which can be zoomed in forever. Its called a vector image.

The very first argument is invalid.

@mcfudge

The difference is that the athiests will change their minds if they are shown any proof. Every theist that I have ever spoken to, without exception, is only a theist due to them clinging to their upbringing or because of a fundamental misunderstanding of science.

There is NO evidence at all to suggest the existence of an intelligent creator. If there were, I wouldn't be an Atheist.

My point was that, if there is something that can be accurately described as "God" out there, it is definitely not going to be the one written about in any existing religious text.

Maybe it was a bit crass to say "Just forget it all", but still, to the majority of the population mentally ill-equipped to actually search for answers for themselves, it might be the best option.

Let's face it. The majority of us are not Einstein or Hawking. Speculations into what could be without concrete evidence, intellectual nous, and the willingness to concede that a theory is flawed is a dangerous thing, especially when the critics are very vocal & very influential.

On the flipside, to the religious who seem to have forgotten that the Bible is just a collection of stories & archaic rules, passed down like chinese whispers, retranslated several times, abused, & misquoted over the years, take a leaf out of the book, Judge not lest ye be judged, and just let everyone else get on with their lives with whatever paths they choose.

This whole science v. religion thing is almost like than a playground fight over which WWF wrestler is bet

@Flying_cow_ - Bah! Never in the history of man has knowledge caused regression. The more we learn, the more questions we have. We'll always be learning, always be asking, no matter what our fates are or what the answer to that question is.

So, if none of this is real, what would you do? What does it matter is this is only a simulation or if this is real. It's real to us, and that's good enough for me.

LOL, I am amused and slightly less bored, however I can't help but think that the only thing worse than not knowing would be that knowledge itself. There's an old saying be careful what you wish for. After all if you really want to know whats what just look around you you silly goat.

"The sooner people (religious & non-religious) just accept that there are things in the universe too big for us to understand, the sooner we can stop bickering about where we come from."

The stupidity of this statement is making my head hurt.

That is intellectual cowardice. It is the drive to understand that has gotten human civilisation to where it is today. The attitude of shrugging and saying "we'll never understand it, let's just accept it" would have us all still living in caves with a life expectancy of 40 at the outside.

Yes, Madest, but it's a very wide leap to go from "Quantum particles behave differently when observed", to "Things only exist when you see them".

Science has discovered too many interesting properties with regards to quantum particles to list, but if anything, scientists have proved that quantum particles do exist even when they're not being observed. They are still immesureable and still an enigma, but the diffuse state of the unobserved quantum particle is only one of a number of possibilities.

And this whole hypothesis is not science, it's not even a theory. It's a philosophy, and an old one at that, first hypothesized by George Berkeley, given a new cyber-twist for the new millenium, then dressed up & strung out to make a TV show.

Interesting theory, but badly presented, and too many "If"->"Therefore" moments.

Also, redefined quantum mechanics into something it's not, and took an obscure experiment to base a hypothesis of "If you observe it, it's there, if you can't it's not" - I'm aware of the double slit & Shroedingers Cat experiments, but they dealt with quantum waveforms, and scientists are still puzzling to this day about why light behaves as waves AND particles. Taking a theory and forcing a logical hypothesis is not much better than..well..saying that some guy with a beard said "let there be light!"

The sooner people (religious & non-religious) just accept that there are things in the universe too big for us to understand, the sooner we can stop bickering about where we come from.

Unfortunately no one can be told what the matrix is, you have to see it for yourself.

PS: Anyone else think that god (read: Morgan Freeman) is just f-cking with us now? I mean, we know who he is, and he keeps trying to say he's not god.

Haha... look at all you guys, arguing on IAB about whether or not there is a god. Instead of making yourselves look like idiots on the internet, try to support of refute his theory. Seriously, take a step back and look at yourselves... I'm sure each of you will see nothing but a close minded idiot.

@EntrE,

Well, I suppose the big bang could still be called a "starting point". But simply a starting point for the universe in it's current state (within the confines of my theory, of course.)

I like to look at the dimensions in a more tangible way. More as a measurable portion of existence. We can quantify the limitations of this dimension in it's speed, temperature (which is technically a speed limitation) and size limitations. I believe that the fastest speed possible here (the speed of light) is the slowest speed in a higher dimension. This explains the "time stops at the speed of light" phenomenon that the math and practical data point to. It seems to stop because you've reached, the slowest speed in the higher dimension.

We have measurable confines, at either end of the scale, that define our dimension and decide it's physics and laws.

@deeplick,

No, you're right. The inconsistencies in science prove there is a God.

@Deeplick - I doubt Richard Dawkins would have said that it was DEFINITELY aliens with space rocks that created us... I'm sure it was a hypothetical theory. The theory in the video makes some sense, and it's been thought up before. For example, as jsatan said, The Truman show. There are countless theories, this is another one that is attempting to make sense of why we exist. Who knows which one is correct (if any). I do quite like the sound of patchouly's thory... it's definitely plausible.

@patchouly
I had the same idea, but when I read into the big band theory it really doesn't contradict that theory. It actually explains how an infinite past can still be infinite and have a starting point at the same time :)

@Lobotomy exactly. They took the god theory and replaced it with nothing, then called it the big bang theory and called us nut jobs.

Oh want to know what I find most insulting? I watched a show that showed a interview of Clinton Richard Dawkins who claimed that beings from another planet came to earth with space rocks and placed the rocks on earth and from those came the first cells. So in that mind set we all evolved from rocks brought here by aliens. Righto atheist and you call us god believers whack jobs, when you can't even agree on how evolution works! What a mockery of not only yourselves but science as a whole.
