The Lives of Universes

Discussion in 'Philosophy' started by aero18, May 16, 2010.

  1. Exactly, what is the random chance that this happened according to absolutely nothing with no order and it just came together by absolutely no intelligence whatsoever. It'd be like the chances of me throwing a chunk of metal into the air and it landing as a car motor.
     
  2. ^Keep in mind that in every region of the Universe all the potentiality to create anything exists... yet the Universe is 99.9% emptiness.

    Even as far as matter is concerned, 99.9% of the Universe is "lifeless."

    Of course, there were hundreds of thousands of sperm in your Dad's sack before you were born, yet you are the one little swimmer that made it.


    It really isn't too unlikely that we've won the lottery of life.
     

  3. if it took 14 billion years for the metal to turn into a car and thousands of extremely evolved creatures helped create the car as it was in midair.
     
  4. Well quite honestly, I am no longer going to participate in this argument. As I've said countless times, someone cannot grasp something they are not ready for. Things of this nature go beyond the intellectual understanding, and if you've never experienced anything higher than intellectual understanding, I cannot help you.

    If you've ever eaten hallucinogens, and you get that sense of understanding all that is yet you cannot put it into a comprehensible sentence, then you have a glimpse of the kind of knowing I'm talking about.
     

  5. just because i dont agree with you doesn't mean i havent experienced anything. i've felt my fair share of experiences, but i am not irrational about them.
     

  6. um the probability would be 1? because we're here.... 0 is us not being here and 1 is everything, because everything is here. And it would be like throwing a chunk of metal into the air because there could possibly be 0.infinite number of things that could happen to it.

    "f it took 14 billion years for the metal to turn into a car and thousands of extremely evolved creatures helped create the car as it was in midair."
    ^^^ what he said:D
     
  7. Found this little treat today;

    It is an hour long, but he's funny and very easy to follow.
     
  8. Dont forget, there are some philosphies/religions that are compatible with science.
