Okay, now, think about it. How exactly do we think? Electric pulses that are travelling through our brain, right? Our brain is made of atoms, which are made of protons, electrons and neutrons. Protons and neutrons are made of quarks. These elementary particles (though, some say that they aren't really elementary; that the elementary particle is actually a single, miniscule superstring, and the strings vibrate at different frequencies to produce the different particles. But I digress) follow the laws of nature - stuff like gravity and electromagnetism (which are forces), and odd laws with complex names, like the law of conservation of angular momentum (which really isn't all that odd and complex compared to others). Now, imagine for a second that some race made a super-powerful computer, and they coded all these laws of nature into the computer, and set it to start at something like, I dunno, the Big Bang. Voila, a simulation of what we perceive to be real life! So, what we 'see' is the virtual, simulated light waves inside the visible spectrum reaching our virtual, simulated eyes, and the retina in our eyes translating it to our virtual, simulated brain so that the brain can process it so that we can think about it. Don't say stuff like 'but computers can't hold that much information!'. If this theory were true, then that would mean that the thing (who might be God, who knows? It just has to be a superintelligent being. Omnipotent and omniscient definitely qualifies as superintelligent) that created the virtual 'us' also created a computer of high enough capacity to hold the information of our very atoms, and process the reactions of all the atoms as if it were real life. Also, please don't try to make general assumptions based on a movie. So the Matrix trilogy portrays computers as not being able to have emotions... so what? It's a fictitious movie. THE MATRIX IS NOT REAL! And if it is, that ALSO shoots your post to bits :P. Also, I can't stress enough the importance of COMMAS. It would make your post so much more intelligible, and make it so much easier understand your points and reflect upon them. Also, with you supporting christianity... isn't that basically the same thing? Okay, look, lets say this 'being' that created the hardrive on which we all exist decides that when we die, the people who believe that he (let's assume it's a he) made them will go to this wondrously fantastic place, while all the people who don't will suffer eternally. Holy cow, I just created an almost exact replica of Christianity! And now all the people who are Christians will suffer eternally in this eternal place of suffering! /sarcasm
Please don't try to defend your points with (and here I generalise) 'Well it can't be otherwise because then (something involving God) God!' That doesn't really help the discussion, it merely reduces it into a kind of religious flame war. And nobody wants that.
Edit: Ohoho, I caught you
. You went and edited it so that instead of 'all the christians will go to heaven' it's 'all the believer will go to heaven'. I don't know why you changed it, cause it's clear you're a christian anyways and we know that 'believers' would mean christians, but, eh :P. And to both of you, I don't mean in any way to insult Christianity, cause being a Christian is fine by me, it's a way of looking at life and how we were formed. But that you would denounce this 'hologram theory' so is kind of hypocritical, because this 'hologram theory' is just another way of looking at life and how we were formed and what we are.
