This does not surprise me at all, as nature obviously repeats effective patterns. This is why I believe that we have a Creator, as chance alone does
not sufficiently explain certain patterns and phenomena that occur repeatedly in our universe. Even just on Earth, chance alone does not sufficiently
explain natural phenomena. I have always subscribed to the theory of evolution, but the truth is that in the case of man, evolution does not
sufficiently explain our origins.
The explosion of the size of the human brain is not adequately explained by evolution or the fossil record, despite all the advancements we have made
in our lifetimes. On a molecular level things are just beyond the scope of sheer randomness, or at least in some complex things. The idea of a
computer simulation caused me to perk up my ears, as this could adequately explain basically all natural phenomena, but in truth, accepting this as
fact at this point is no different from believing in a Creator, as there is not "direct" evidence of either, although there is circumstantial
evidence of both. I believe that in the future this idea can be probed on a deeper level, although even if it is found that the simulation theory
seems to be correct, this does not negate the idea of God, just as evolution cannot negate the idea of God.
This is true because none of us posses the wisdom of the Creator, thus we cannot fathom, understand, or even know what mechanisms God may use in
creating the multi-verse, or universe, depending on which theory you subscribe to. People forget that human understanding may not be all there is in
terms of all-knowingness, thus so many people denounce God as being a creation of man, simply because they think they are able to understand
everything with their human brains. This is not the case, and even physics may not be able to ever explain or understand things on the level a Creator
would. I do not know why I went on a religious rant, as I am not that religious, and this was not my intention...It just kind of flowed as I was
writing, and I think it could be of benefit to some people, so I will leave this post as it is. Thanks OP for the thread. Good job.
