    Some of us peer through different sides of the same looking glass. At one side the right brains perceive the same grand design as supernatural, while the left brains perceive it through science and logic. Perhaps one day when we start to perceive reality in its totality, we will understand the nature of our existence and the and uncover the theory of everything.
    Strange, I never heard something like this before. I'm glad got through this shit.

    Btw, how sure are you of being an INTP? You have this NF vibe.

    The Bible has it's uses, but this is not one of them.

    You're better off trying to figure it out on your own, in my opinion.

    The bible isn't meant to help in understanding questions about one's existence?

    I don't think so, no. It's more of a distraction from understanding the nature of our existence. I think of it more of a guide for morality, and even then.. It's usefulness is limited.

    You are so adorable with your little Einstein stuff. I have so much respect for it. I promise I'll work it into my theories about esoteric/religious stuff later, but right now I don't have time.

    I don't think we're intelligent enough to answer the question. There's probably a vast amount of concepts that we're unable to comprehend*. Things that are incompatible with brain structure. The very fact there's a particular structure determines what information can and can't be comprehended. We can get so far, by applying model-dependent realism.

    I've some pet guinea pigs. How could they possibly comprehend that they're kept as pets in a habitat artificially created by human beings? Or any other animals in fact: the modern world around them, the idea of it being created by us, and the technology used... it's very much beyond them, never mind the universe beyond earth.

    We'll be in a similar situation with aspects of the universe. The answer to this question, being so fundamental, is probably one of them. Imagine what we'd know simply with a slightly larger and more efficient brain. How much more would be comprehensible then? What new ideas would be available to us?

    *Evolution and scientific progression may slowly enable more complex ideas to be accessible.

    I think therefore I am.
    I wish I'd saved the article, but Lawrence Krauss was quoted writing to another cosmologist to be careful of how they presented M-theory in public because it looked a lot like trying to avoid the Big Bang, in order to avoid anything that resembled special creation. Saw this about a year, year and a half ago.
    For the nonce, I think it's fun to point out that M-theory violates the f*ck out of Occam's razor.

    Put down your bong.
    An "explanation" is not SUFFICIENT evidence.
    At least, that is supposed to be the grounds for choosing empiricism over, say, scholasticism, authority, or mysticism.

    Either that, or you're tripping over your words in your haste to get them out.

    Take a deep breath, type more slowly, and try again.

    naah, you're projecting.
    They don't understand how clueless we really are about the Universe because they watch Nova and read Sagan and Dawkins.
    Because SCIENCE (TM).
