    Default Which is more absurd?

    Beginning of time or no beginning of time?

    Life on other planets or no life on other planets?

    Creator or no creator?

    Protest: all absurd things are equally absurd.

    And, an absurd thing is absurd, so there are no absurdities.

    I'm quite serious.

    Is this just to get people riled up?

    These threads usually only serve to do just that.

    Beginning of time or no beginning of time?

    Well, when you get back to the early moments of the big bang it's a quantum event and quantum mechanics is really weird to us on the Newtonian scale. The universe doesn't exist in time, it is time. Space-Time. So, skip this one.

    Life on other planets or no life on other planets?

    The universe is too damn big for us to be the only life in the universe.

    Creator or no creator?

    Believing in magical people is stupid. Get with the Enlightenment.

    That's what I'm saying.

    Sass had an interesting answer on this one.

    Life on other planets or no life on other planets?
    How are we defining life again?

    Creator or no creator?
    No way to know.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Time began on March 3, 1923, according to this article.

    But anyway, I believe that our minds create our own subjective reality.

    I agree with antireconciler. All of these positions are equally absurd. How one decides which position is based upon the assumptions they make and their overall worldview including culture, values, etc.... I think what is more fruitful is rather than declaring one of the viewpoints to be absurd, we should attempt to understand the viewpoint that we do not favor and why a person might reasonably hold that viewpoint.

    Why would you ask that? Do you create threads to do that? Because I don't. I couldn't stop thinking about this last night, and I'd like to hear some replies.
