I have to say I really don't agree with the end part of that video. I'm an atheist , or evolutionist if that's what you want to class it as. The
entire argument of the last 15 minutes of that video comes down to the exact same argument we have with regards to a 'god'.
He said someone was arguing the point that life must have been created by aliens, but then who made those aliens, and who made them etc etc. He found
this laughable, yet the same argument for an intelligent presence (ie. god) is completely rational to him. How does that work? A lot of religious
people argue that god has always existed, which to me can be argued the other way that energy and hence the potential for the universe and life has
therefore always existed (whatever model of astrological ideals you may believe in).
So this entire argument seems to be completely hypocritical to me. I do not ignore scientific fact, in-fact quite the opposite. My belief system (yes
I do agree that my view point is a BELIEF and not fact, however ti based of real facts rather than story books).
My beliefs are based from astrophysics, astronomy, biology etc etc. The figures mentioned again in that video are just irrational. With the potential
of an infinite universe or possibly even universes, there is no way to put a figure on the amount of particles that exist, especially as we barely
understand 20% of what actually makes up our universe! Bearing in mind the ridiculously small probability of our galaxy forming in such a way that
our solar system formed from precisely the correct materials, planet sizes, distances between the planets, chemical make ups etc etc to have a planet
at a suitable temperature and distance from the sun to have water, you can see the probability is one in much more than I could attempt to put into
numbers. Basic life in terms of a single celled organism that can reproduce is completely comprehendible to me. given the fact that we have found no
other life in the universe, the exact point that is being made about the ridiculously small odds sums it up, those small odds are us!
but to say the entire universe must have been made purely so that only us can exist on our one planet, out of the billions or trillions (or infinite)
planets that can exist seems a little bit ott. Why not just make one solar system and be done with it. If an intelligent 'god' made us, then why go
to all the bother of creating the rest of the universe if there is no other life?
When you see things from a quantum point of view suddenly it opens up whole new unimaginable possibilities, I don't admit to have anywhere near
enough knowledge on this subject as I would like, yet when you look at situations such as matter quite literally spontaneously appearing out of
nowhere from nothing, you start to look at things in a very different way. All it would need is a particular mix of particles to have appear and
interact and then the seeds of the universe would stem from that. And given the time the universe has existed it certainly seems possible to me.
To strongly religious people from any faith, I would genuinely like to hear your opinions on how/why you think god can have existed for ever, yet
matter and energy can't?
