Re: A Scientific Religion

Perhaps it is time to view God not as an omnipotent being, but rather as a personification of everything good about humankind, which we should strive to achieve one day. Instead of placing God above the universe/multiverse, maybe God should simply be a collection of all the good virtues that makes ...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

You are too arrogant and blinded to think I have created a strawman. Yeah, well, be careful there Mr. Pot, because based on your forum persona, you are in no position to accuse any of us Kettles of being arrogant or blind. I did not invent nor create the above points, I was merely presenting what t...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

You are too hasty in the above. Note I qualified, the ' supposed -God'. Since I was debating with IC who is a Christian, then his supposed-God of Christianity which supposes omni-whatever cannot exist due to the illogical and contradictory claims against the reality of evil. The point is by default...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

It is not from my thinking. That claim is made by “St. Anselm, Descartes, and others” when they are cornered with the claim their God is limited and inferior. Your answer has nothing to do with the point I was making in my question. It may be true that the claims that St. Anselm, Descartes, and oth...

Re: There is No Sufficient Reason for God to Allow For Evil

I believe this is the critical point your overlooked: It is not me who listed those omni-features for God but your highest regarded theologians [St. Anselm, Descartes and others] who assigned your supposed-God the maximally or whatever omni-Good qualities as an Ontological God. And what in the worl...

Re: Donald Hoffman: There is No Objective Reality

In the case of humans and the emergence of reality , what is behind and enable the emergence of reality are the neural algorithms in the physical brain and body which is deterministically connected back to the Big Bang , which spiral back to the emergence of reality . That’s quite a speculative str...

Re: Donald Hoffman: There is No Objective Reality

Noted your interesting points, except the following point; Hoffman did not imply humans LITERALLY create “...any physical object that we see - in the moment that we see it...” as if like waving a wand and things appear. It is more sophisticated than that. Yes, it is more sophisticated than that, an...

Re: From 'No Man's Land' to 'La La Land'

So then, if the completely real and autonomous (left-jumping) Sean Carroll in the other world turned evil and was somehow able to destroy the moon in his world (just for kicks), would that have any effect on the moon in the world of the right-jumping Sean Carroll? I think not according to Carroll's...

Re: From 'No Man's Land' to 'La La Land'

...which was there all along. Watch the video again. What was there all along? Are you talking about the other world that contains the Sean Carroll who jumped to the left? _______ Yes, it's not like new worlds get created at quantum events So then, if the completely real and autonomous (left-jumpin...

Re: From 'No Man's Land' to 'La La Land'

No, he did not say that new universes are created. And you don't seem to undestand how 'universe' is used in the MWI, it's understood as a branch of the universal wavefunction,... Come on now, Atla, the universal wavefunction and how it fits in with the MWI is not that difficult to visualize, so st...

Re: The meaning of emergence

I and Veritas Aequitas have and issue about the definition of emergence. I provide my definition here. Yours also welcome. Emergence means that a state of matter under some circumstances behaves in a specific way or find a specific property, for example becomes a free agent, or become conscious. Th...

Re: From 'No Man's Land' to 'La La Land'

The Everettian posits the reality of the universal wavefunction, but there is no need for this insane creating and splitting of universes, few physicists actually believe in that (neither does Carroll who you mentioned).
