Right. You couldn’t make this stuff up. No one would believe you. But actually, some of our most esteemed (whatever) physicists are discussing the possibility that everything around us (and that’s a lot of stuff) is actually not real, just a simulation run by some other entity somewhere. No joke. Check this link out:
Now, if you watched the movie trilogy “The Matrix” you probably would reply: of course, but that story has already been told. The thing is, these guys are not talking about this as a funny joke to tell at a poker game. They mean it. Let’s summarize their intellectual approach according to this theory:
- The universe in infinite.
- Because it is infinite, then anything that can be thought is possible.
- If anything is possible then it does happen somewhere in an infinite universe
- Therefore, it is likely that we could be living in a fake reality
Among the most pathetic examples of naturalist justification. The universe is a fake because it can be? Come on, now . . .
Ever since scientists, unable to replicate the wonders and miracles recanted in the Bible, have disregarded them as fakes, they had to create an alternative. Funny thing is, this alternative is just as impossible to prove experimentally as Adam or the parting of the seas. An infinite universe is nothing but a theory, completely fabricated and justifying a set of opinions that are just that, personal and untestable.
The Big Bang Theory drove a giant stake in the heart of the infinite universe theory by proving that our universe had a beginning, finite, determined. To quote Kalam’s cosmological argument,
- Everything that begins has a cause
- The universe had a beginning
- Therefore the universe has a cause.
and the Big Bang definitely had a beginning, a time, and we can experimentally verify its leftover products.
Watch these intellectual bozos present the multiverse machine as a valid theory. This is a funny thing some physicists use to justify their need for infinite universes to exist because all the possible universes (since an infinite one is not enough, ’cause someone can think there is an infinite number of them, so it must be true . . .) are being produced somewhere by some machine. Sounds pretty iffy, doesn’t it?
I’ve got a better idea. There is this book, passed along virtually unchanged over thousands of years and cross-vetted by hundreds of cultures. It’s called the Bible, and the stuff in it seems to reflect very closely the events we have witnessed in our history over the last five thousand years.
Until someone actually performs time travel and checks out everything, I’m going with that one. How about you?
