You capped it, it must then mean something to you.
Can you explain to me what a scientific theory is, and what the difference between that and speculation is?
I have researched it, and I know what it means, just wondering if you have somehow read something different that makes them equal.
Also, do you embrace the THEORY of gravity, or do you believe gravity is more just speculation verses something that can be tested?
I think intelligent design is possible. I mean look at transhumanism. We look to change the human condition with our tools and knowledge.
Well, this is speculation of course..and sure. We can self evolve at this point. Hell, we started that process when we started wearing clothes to
artificially adapt to cooler environments.
But why throw speculation of what we can do now with a discussion of our origins? Unless we started out transhumanists and dumbed down on purpose
for...lulz? then it isn't really relevant, nor is their any evidence supporting cavemen were actually androids or cyborgs.
Since the advent of video games and the like, people are now drumming up the concept of virtual worlds, virtual lives, etc. maybe in 100 years, we
can create a fully immersive experience of a actual life in a virtual world...does this then mean that's what we are in now? Well, maybe, but there
is no solid evidence to support this speculation either..not even enough to formulate a full hypothesis yet (but yes, research is being done...don't
start posting links on some evidence of holo universe..its intriguing, but just barely started the groundwork).
What we DO know is the reality we live in right now. So, it makes sense then to focus in on what this reality is showing us, right?
