There is also the shroud of turin, which verifies Jesus in a new way than other evidences.

Quote from: Asmodean on November 10, 2023, 03:01:58 PM Listen to the roo-loving* upside-down man in the stolen royal hat. Evolution is a process, not a miracle.*...In soup, not in Biblical sense. Or... Wait, it's Puds. Does he even appreciate roo soup? What if he doesn't even like roos? would that automatically invalidate the wisdom of suing proper definitions? Somehow, it feels like it must.There be philosophy to be done, and The Asmo shall be done doin' it. Point is, if it can be explained a tenth as well as evolution, then it has loooong since ceased to be a miracle - except with far more Os.

Quote from: zorkan on November 16, 2023, 11:26:25 AMbut most science is either speculation or plagiarism.
QuoteThe universe is the biggest mystery and how and why it was created and why it is fine tuned for life is what keeps philosophers and scientists awake during the night.
QuoteSuppose it was created in another dimension by artificial intelligence for the purpose of making a mirror universe to hold its universe together.Not a new idea I know, but any software has bugs to begin, and we might expect even AI to have some.The resulting chaos eventually forms molecules which makes life possible given enough time.
QuoteThe planet we live on is in a goldilock's zone where life started about 4 billion years ago.It is believed that Homo sapiens nearly died out at one point with a population of only a few thousand.So the Catholic idea about evolution being guided by god has to be bullshit.Then our world is nothing more than a biological and geological junk yard. Based on an idea by Peter Atkins in On Being.
Quote from: zorkan on November 16, 2023, 02:37:08 PMIt is quite possible some sort of intelligence had a hand in the universe.
QuoteWhat caused the very brief period of inflation which it is theorised triggered the universe.
QuoteIs the universe all there is and all there ever has been?
QuoteDoes it have purpose and meaning, or none?
QuoteI don't even know what the universe is, or its shape, or whether it's finite or infinite.Best answer I know its purpose is to transition muons into electrons, and we are along for the ride to help with entropy.
QuoteIf it does have an artificial design then the religious are worshipping a machine.
QuoteWe don't know, but then there is nothing pointing towards it being anything we would consider intelligent.
QuoteA bit of a stretch, unless using a very specific definition of "machine."
Quote from: zorkan on November 19, 2023, 04:58:55 PMWhere Dawkins gets it hopelessly wrong is when he says god must be even more complex than his creation.Stephen Wolfram would contradict this idea. Seth Lloyd might also.
QuoteA computational machine could work off binary leading to ever greater complexity.I doubt if a spirit in the sky would work off binary but a type of computer could.
Quote from: Tank on November 11, 2023, 05:14:23 PMThere is no such thing as a natural miracle. A miracle is by definition supernatural. It's use in a natural context is misuse of the word.
