19 Jun The Simulation Hypothesis (Biblical Perspective)
Is reality simulated? Could, in theory, as many distinguished physicists have suggested that we exist in a computer simulation? A simulated reality indistinguishable from the true reality.
Therefore, if one understands the function of a computer, and if we are like programs on the computer, as long as the hard drive is not damaged, someone or something can always reboot, or shall I say rerun the program.
Furthermore, if the simulation hypothesis is true, we then open the discussion about the resurrection of Christ, eternal life, and many of the writings from scripture. And, if we exist in a simulation, one then must ask who or what is the architect of the construct, the program, the physical world we live in.
Finally, to my colleagues, whom I study and debate with regularly, if you are in agreement with this world view and accept this hypothesis as an accurate description of nature, proposed by so many in the scientific community, I strongly suggest you read the new Testament and the first chapter in the book of Genesis.
“I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never die.” John 11:25
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the spirit of God hovered over the waters. Genesis 1:1-2
