    Is the Universe a Simulation?

    2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is the Universe a Simulation?



    I've attended about a half dozen of these Isaac Asimov debates, but I couldn't make it this year. I didn't feel the panel did enough justice to the topic as they could have; they seemed to veer off on tangents too often. James Gates, who a number of years ago made some noise by stating he is considering whether we are living in a Matrix has really backed off of that position. I think he probably received a lot of negative feedback for what he said last time and is making an effort to prevent that from happening again.

    I saw the thread title and kept thinking I've heard this topic discussed recently but didn't know where.. It was on Neil deGrasse Tyson's Star Talk podcast.

    We have smart people here that are capable of good discussion but the threads always get ruined by a select few that think they have to post gibberish in every thread because it's active.

    Yar I think it is.

    Or my own theory is that it's a stimulation universe. The big bang is some gods jack off session ending.

    That's why my brain always needs constant stimulation, aye.
    It finally happened - I'm slightly mad. Just very slightly mad! (on the inside)
