[quote:niphtrique:MV8yMTMxMjk0XzM1OTcyNjI0XzY5MkU4OTE3] In Genesis 1:26 God seems to suggest that we live in a simulation of a real world with the words: "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness." On Simulation-argument.com Professor Nick Bostrom argues that at least one of the following must be true: - The human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a posthuman stage. - Any posthuman civilisation is extremely unlikely to run a significant number of simulations of their evolutionary history (or variations thereof). - We are almost certainly living in a computer simulation. Based on the argument above, it is likely that the universe is a virtual reality. Humans have an inclination to build simulations. It is also likely that humans developed an advanced civilisation that is able to build virtual realities long ago so humans are not likely to go extinct before reaching a posthuman stage. There have been billions of years in which humanity could have become an advanced civilisation that is able to build virtual realities, so the likelihood of humanity entering this phase in this specific timeframe is small, compared to any timeframe in the past. It is therefore reasonable to assume that we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation. The assumption that this universe is a virtual reality can be supported with the following findings: - Technology like the holodeck appears to be feasible less than a century from now, while humans are inclined make virtual realities with simulations of humans. Billions of virtual realities like this universe may exist, so it is unlikely that this universe is real. - The existence of synchronicity and coincidences indicates that there is a script behind all events. - In a virtual reality supernatural and paranormal events are possible. - In a virtual reality miracles are possible that seem to defy the laws of nature as have been described in The Bible. The assumption that this virtual reality is owned by someone we call God can be supported with the following findings: - In Genesis 1:26 God seems to suggest that we live in a copy of a real world with the words: "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness." - Even though there have been thousands of gods and goddesses worshipped in the past, none of them presented himself or herself, except one. - It is unlikely that by pure chance a religion of a small and often dispersed people survived for more than 1,500 years and then became the basis for three major world religions, while it has been foretold to Abraham that all the peoples will be blessed in him (Gen. 18:17-18).

"(NaturalNews) There's a lot of buzz in the news about a new scientific study that statistically supports the idea that our known universe is actually a grand computer simulation. This is mainstream science, and the idea isn't a whacky as you might first suppose. I've actually written about this several times in articles about consciousness and the nature of reality. This news, by the way, also supports the idea of a Creator who brought this universe -- and everything in it -- into existence by design."
"One obvious answer is that we built it! Not "we" the humans here on Earth, but rather the "we" which is a highly advanced civilization of seemingly supernatural beings with incomprehensibly powerful technology. We collectively built the simulation, the theory goes, and then agreed to selectively insert our consciousness into the simulation in order to have a "human life experience" on this planet. But that's only one possibility from all this."
