Well, from my POV, I believe in the matrix. I come from a Christian background and have came to the conclusion that the anti-christ is no less than the physical world. To me, this represents all that is not spiritual or perfect and the only way to explain it is to believe in a matrix or an illusion of sorts that temporarily deceives us for a time until we regain consciousness at either physcial death for some or a rapture (as some call it) where the test of the world is over.
After seeing enough computer games I have no problem believing in a higher system of reality in which we view the world through an altered sense of reality.
The dream state when you sleep is further support for this concept that the matrix can exist apart from our being awake.
Good thread...will keep a watch on it.

Thanks. I have to agree. I am also from a christian family but that does not mean that everything I have been taught, or other christians, is all bogus. I guess we need to look at these things in context and based in theidea that the books we read i.e. Bible, are not literal. They "paint" a picture of the idea of things thta happened in a more "understandable" way i guess. Considering the understanding we have today of the world is a little more advanced and we tend not to have to describe things as they did back then.
We are in one of 11 dimensions. On the same earth? OR - are other dimensions on other planets? Would be interesting to have a gadget that one can use to "see" other dimensions or parallel realities…
