I find it ironic that the simulation hypothesis implies a creator and is, therefore, not compatible with atheism

I suppose they get past that by not defining the programmer as a god, which, really is just moving the goal posts. The end result is the same. Some entity outside our universe created this one.

Simulation does not imply a creator, we could be a biproduct of another system.

I think I follow what you mean, but I think our difference of opinion lies in the meaning of simulation - if its not on purpose, is it still a simulation?  I would say no

So, all of this begs the question: If The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension was so bad in our limited dimensions, how bad could it have possibly been in the 8th Dimension?

You shut your whore mouth about Buckaroo Banzai!  :rogpipe:

Stop blowing it out of your ass, and answer the question. Inquiring minds want to know.

Buckaroo Banzai couldn't possibly have been any better in ANY dimension, you mongoloid freak!  How the writers didn't get the Nobel Prize for literature is fucking beyond me.  Clear bias on the part of the Belgians who run that Goddamn back-patting society.

Buckaroo Banzai is probably the only character I've liked so immediately that the knowledge he wasn't real made me a little disappointed. I was like, dammit, I want to be that fictitious person's friend like practically everyone in this movie.

Also one of the characters reminded me of ECH

I like to think that Peter  Wellers characters are all in the same continuity, that robocop led to naked lunch, which led to Buckaroo Banzia

I like Peter Weller, but I can not find it in my heart to ever forgive him for that excruciatingly long ‘piano playing in the lounge’ scene. And, I still had patience back in those days.

I really thought you guys were a lot cooler than this, I really did. Words can not express my disappointment in all of you.

We're like a factory of disappointment and regret.

I'm not a Discordian and never have been. I'm just interested in The Goddess Eris and her doings and happened upon an agreeable Discordian Society here. I'm not an Atheist, bit I definitely don't qualify as Christian by most modern definitions as I don't think Jesus was God even if he was the Messiah... a big if that. I try to put God and the stories we tell ourselves here on this world into proper context regarding the now obvious age and immensity of the cosmos. This wipes out a LOT of the bullshit common in the popular faiths and serves up a whole new plate of bullshit, but more of it and fresher. Yay.

Things I still believe in or have recently come to believe:

Possession is a thing, but not much like the movies. It's subtle and has much more to do with ideas than "demons". I like the Greek idea of "eudaemons" and "cacadaemons", good and bad thoughts respectively. I suspect STRONGLY that memes reach a sort of critical mass and can acquire a sort of independent reality and even consciousness, though still dependent upon people for sustenance so to speak. I'm not the only one that shares this concept ITT, but I'd propose to call them "Animemes" from animus (or spirit) and meme. Note this means that our "gods" are actually our own children or mental offspring and as such we make a horrible mistake in putting them in charge of our lives.

I'm pretty sure time travel is not only possible but has been utilized in a fashion that has had truly disturbing consequences. I don't buy most of the speculation about what caused the "Mandela" effects, but they're real as it gets. Folks remember things differently. Shit, just this Christmas I got a card with Star Wars characters on it and C-3po had two golden legs instead of the silver one. Someone drew that image from memory. In addition I can vouch personally that somehow the text of the King James Bible, standard of fundies everywhere, is not as it was. Not going to be exhaustive, but the changes are quite significant.

I believe in Chi, Qi, Orgone, or whatever you like to call it. I believe it to be the same substance upon which Animemes feed and grow. It is shaped by the mind and produced by the body in breathing and similar metabolic processes. If you're unfamiliar with Kirlian photography look it up.

I suspect that humanity is an engineered species and a hodge-podge one at that. The 23rd chromosome is rather an odd duck, but what really makes me think this is how different we are in scope of capability from every other critter here. I don't buy into Sitchin's tale of alien sky lords from "Nibiru", but I'm not discounting the possibility entirely either.

I'm certain that ancient technologically advanced human civilization existed on this planet before and that a great cataclysm buried most of it. I'm pretty sure that the theory about Apollo 18-20 has at least some basis in fact and that they found things on the moon that could not be explained easily and would undo history as we know it.

That's all for now. Take with a grain of salt the size of Bootes Void.
