    It never ceases to disgust me that people get paid large sums of money to come up with this kind of tripe and get respect of the blind populace...
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    If we were living in a simulation it would almost certainly mean it's entirely bugfree or self sufficient in recognizing and avoiding bugs.

    This is statistically impossible. :P

    I think its silly that people are saying this. How would it explain things like space/time warps and black holes? I think this is actually a better theory than that. YouTube - Contact Intro - Earth Universe Space Zoom Out

    What, you think a film based on a book by Carl Sagen starring Jodie Foster is a better theory than virtual reality?

    Actually, I think I may have a way to prove this!

    Get Lawrence Fishburn to interview this guy. In the middle of the interview, he holds up two pills, one red, one blue. The red pill will be full of cyanide.

    If he takes the blue, we're not in the matrix. Red, one less crazy bastard.

    Yep. Exactly. And why would our beer-drinking couch potato not include something fun, like magic or teleportation, rather than viral disease and violent death? The sim idea doesn't make sense to me on any level. It is fun to think about when stoned though.

    Eh its always possible but most likely not. If it was a simulation it would probably be more organized unless the simulation was driven by pure chaos. No not the movie but the intro video where it zooms out of a persons eye into the cosmos and then out and out and out and then you see it form into the eye of the person. Yesterday i was talking to someone and in a split i got a feeling of just how crazy it is im talking to someone right now and that earth isn't just another desolate rock.
