Yet more evidence emerges that our universe is a grand simulation created by an intelligent designer

Yet more evidence emerges that our universe is a grand simulation created by an intelligent designer

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.

A new scientific paper published in arXiv and co-authored by Silas Beane from the University of Bonn reveals strong statistical evidence that our reality is, indeed, a grand computer simulation. The title of the paper is Constraints on the Universe as a Numerical Simulation.

Here's what it means in layman's terms


Here's the super easy way to understand all this. Your computer display screen has a finite number of pixels available, and this is called the "screen resolution" such as 1920 x 1440. This means there are 1920 pixels across and 1440 pixels vertically.

Everything you see on your computer screen must be drawn and depicted using these pixels, and nothing can be displayed that's only half a pixel. For example, you can't draw a vertical line on the screen that exists between the pixels that are hard-wired into the screen resolution. Everything you view on the monitor -- a computer game, a website, even a video -- is essentially transposed onto the "lattice" of pixels that exist in your hardware.

Your hardware, in effect, has a hard-wired "resolution limit" which defines the smallest size of any object that can be depicted on the screen.

Now, zoom out to the "real" world in which we live. Here in the real world, we think that there are no pixels and that we can move fluidly to any location we wish. We are not digitized being, we think; we're analog beings living in a fluid world without the pixelation of a computer screen, right?

Not so fast. As it turns out, our "reality" is also pixelated, just at a very fine resolution. This study out of Bonn revealed that the energy level of cosmic rays "snaps to" the "resolution" of the universe in which we live. The very laws of electromagnetic radiation, in other words, are confined by the resolution of the three-dimensional simulation we call a "universe."

The existence of this construct, if proven, also proves intelligent design by a conscious Creator who built the universe to begin with. This is the upshot of this scientific discovery that most scientists refuse to acknowledge. But the conclusion is inescapable: If our universe is a carefully-constructed simulation, then by definition there must have been a purpose behind its construction as well as a Creator who built it.

For the record, my personal belief is that the Creator set all the physical constants in the universe and then initiated the so-called "Big Bang" and let things play out from there. I do not believe our Creator "tinkers" with the universe at a micro level on a day-to-day basis. But I do believe there very well may have been individuals throughout history who found ways to "bend the rules" of the Matrix ever so slightly and thereby perform the very kind of miracles we see described in ancient texts.

"The structure of the underlying lattice"


The authors of this new paper describe their conclusion as following: "The numerical simulation scenario could reveal itself in the distributions of the highest energy cosmic rays exhibiting a degree of rotational symmetry breaking that reflects the structure of the underlying lattice."

This "underlying lattice" is what I'm describing as a "resolution" of our physical simulation.

There's other evidence of this, too: Plank's Constant, for example, is by itself yet more evidence that the physical universe in which we live is quantized to a particular resolution. In fact, even light behaves in a quantized manner, which is why "light packets" are called quanta.

Our universe, it turns out, is digital, not analog. Heck, even your DNA is digital, not analog. You are a digitized physical being imbued with a non-material consciousness that transcends this physical simulation. Realizing this is a lot like taking the red pill in The Matrix and being shown that the universe you thought was real is actually just a grand computer simulation.

Of course, once you grasp that we are living in a grand simulation, the next obvious question is: Who built it?

Intelligent 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.

Another possible answer is that HE built it. Who is He? He is God, our Creator. He is a consciousness with literal God-like powers who is omnipresent and all-powerful. He created our universe (i.e. designed and then launched the simulation) while providing a mechanism for free will consciousness to "wake up" inside the simulation in the bodies of newly-born beings. Upon death in the simulation, your consciousness leaves the simulation and returns to its source, which is the actual reality that transcends this one. This is possibly why people who have survived near-death experiences consistently report their experience as being a "hyper reality" that feels like it is "a thousand times more real than life on Earth."

For the record, I have always believed in a supernatural Creator of our universe; our God. I also believe -- and have good evidence -- that God is an all-loving being and that the overriding purpose of our existence in this universe is to express our free will and thereby have a self-aware experience which advances our knowledge of who we are. More details on this below...

What would be the purpose of intelligently designing a grand computer simulation?


If our universe was consciously created, then it must have been created for a purpose. In his book Proof of Heaven, near-death survivor Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon, describes the purpose in great detail on page 48 of his book:

Through the Orb, told me that there is not one universe but many -- in fact, more than I could conceive -- but that love lay at the center of them all. Evil was present in all the other universes as well, but only in the tiniest trace amounts. Evil was necessary because without it free will was impossible, and without free will there could be no growth -- no forward movement, no chance for us to become what God longed for us to be. Horrible and all-powerful as evil sometimes seemed to be in a world like ours, in the larger picture love was overwhelmingly dominant, and it would ultimately be triumphant.

The primary purpose of life in this realm, it seems, is to experience personal growth and learn how to overcome Evil. This explains why we all seem to be surrounded by so much evil on a day-to-day basis. We are drowning in evil precisely because our souls chose to be here and learn how to defeat it.

At the end of our Earthly lives, we are then judged on our performance. As I wrote in a previous article:

Upon our death, we are judged by a higher power, and that judgment takes into account our performance in these areas. Did we achieve a measure of self-awareness? Did we work to overcome evil? Did we express love and compassion and help uplift others with knowledge and awareness?

As you've probably already figured out, the vast majority of humans fail these tests. They die as bitter, selfish, substance-addicted, greed-driven minions of evil who mistakenly thought they were winning the game of life while, in reality, they were losing the far more important test of the Creator.

Looking around at our fellow human beings, you can't help but agree with my assessment that nearly everyone is failing the test. If we are here to overcome and resist evil, very few people are scoring very many points at all.

Having your consciousness attached to a human experience in this world seems to be the universal equivalent of "being thrown in the deep end" of Good vs. Evil. Making matters even more difficult, none of us is granted any sort of memory of why we are here and what we're supposed to do. We simply wake up as a newborn, and we have to figure things out for ourselves -- a challenge that often takes a lifetime. In fact, the achievement of "enlightenment" in a human lifetime is quite a remarkable feat by any measure.

What this means for your life


So what does all this mean in terms of the way you live your life here on Earth? If you believe the universe really is a grand simulation created by a higher power, then it forces you to rethink your philosophy on the purpose of life.

Some might say this is the perfect excuse to resort to selfish hedonism and turn your entire life into one vast entertainment parade. But that seems to be the wrong conclusion from all this, precisely because it ignores the importance of personal growth. I do not believe our universe is a childish playground; I believe it is a serious test of spiritual strength. You may or may not agree with all my points, but here's my philosophy on what to do with this realization:

#1) Don't chase material things that aren't even real in the first place. You are living in a simulation that's as un-real as an old 8-bit Atari computer game. Your focus on trying to collect money and wealth in this world is about as foolish as trying to collect gold coins in a role-playing computer game.

#2) Live your life to WIN the simulation. "Winning" means persistently working to defeat evil, demonstrate love and help awaken others. Rack up your "karma" points, so to speak. Because that's how you will be judged once your earthly life comes to an end.

#3) Know that your behavior is being watched, recorded and judged. There are ultimately no secrets. You will, in time, face judgment on all your actions, and it's even possible that an entire civilization of advanced Creators will review your actions with you. (This is what is often described by those who survive NDEs.) Your actions in this simulation are recorded on your soul for eternity, so make them count. Don't do anything your soul would feel ashamed of.

#4) Know that death is not final. What matters far more than staying alive on this planet is living your life with principle. Your decisions (ethics) survive your human life! I would rather die defending principles of love and enlightenment than compromise those principles to save my own skin in this simulation. Life is fleeting, but the record of your morals and behavior lasts forever. If all this starts to sound a little Biblical, that's because the Bible is, I believe, based in part on information provided to us by the Creator of our grand simulation.

#5) Realize that your consciousness is eternal and you almost certainly "agreed" to come here and experience this life as a spiritual test. With that in mind, do your best to achieve success within the test by demonstrating behavior based in high spiritual principles.

Why I'm not afraid to tell the truth


Once you grasp all this, you realize why I am not afraid to speak my mind and report the truth here on Natural News. People often ask me, "Aren't you afraid of being killed?" While I do take tactical precautions to avoid being prematurely removed from this simulation, I simultaneously realize that there is ultimately nothing to be afraid of in this simulated world.

What's to be afraid of, really? Most of the people who claim to have power in this world will be reduced to Hellish minions after their death. If you look at truly evil people in this world, you realize that those people have already doomed their souls in the real world beyond this one. They will suffer from the Hell they have brought upon themselves by living lives of deception. We who tell the truth arespiritual giants compared to those who gain false power through deception.

That's why never selling out is an absolutely must if you hope to pass the spiritual test of life. If you sell out to corporate interests or an evil agenda that suppresses freedom or health, you quite literally sell out your own soul far beyond this one lifetime. The phrase "eternal damnation" comes to mind...

On the issue of gun rights, by the way, all this helps explain why self defense is a divine right. We all deserve the right to prevent our souls from being prematurely removed from the simulation (i.e. being killed). Guns are simply tools that can help us defend our physical bodies so that our spiritual bodies can continue with their intended experiences in this reality. This is why those of high spirituality have traditionally carried swords and other weapons of self defense. Even Jesus recommend people carry swords for protection, even as they pursue spiritual awakening.

A gun defends the body so that the spirit can do its work, in other words. But that's only true if the use of gun is reserved for self defense only. To use a gun to commit unjustified violence against innocents is obviously a terrible sin and a catastrophic spiritual failure.

Conclusion: Has science proven the existence of God?


If all this science is true, it would mean that science has proven the existence of a Creator (as well as intelligent design).

This is certainly not the intention of science, as much of modern-day science seems to be dead-set against the idea of intelligent design. Yet even if the entire universe can be traced back to the Big Bang and Inflation Theory (with Inflatons) there is still the lingering question of "Who or what initiated the Big Bang?"

If you really look deeply into the laws of physics, by the way, you will discover that the so-called universal constants that drive the underlying mechanics and energies of our universe have been intricately fine-tuned precisely to give rise to a universe that can support biological life. Change one of these constants just slightly and stars don't form. Change another constant and the universe flings itself apart before life can form on any planets. These are at least six physical constants that appear to have been delicately tuned, selected or somehow "set" sort of like a universal control panel with properties and parameters.

There's an interesting book on this subject by science writer Paul Davies, by the way. It's called The Goldilocks Enigma: Why Is the Universe Just Right for Life? I've read most of it and recommend the book to other seekers who are looking for the deepest answers about the nature of reality and how it all came to be.

If you're interested in my own views on all this, read my article on The Higgs boson "God particle".

Thanks for the article. Regarding The Goldilocks Enigma, the book "On Computer Simulated Universes" proposes a novel solution. I'll try to summarize it briefly -- across many universe simulations there would be some that successfully produce many more universe simulations contained inside, and so on. This would cause an evolution of universes with better and better physical properties to support advanced civilizations who would then run some sort of simulation themselves. Idea makes sense.

Your morals and ethics are strong and just. I very much agree with a similar virtuous path however, if we live in a simulation we can consider its matrix is 010101001 some sort of binary code because it takes two numerals to compose data and create a universe thus creating time in the process.(0) is both infinite and nothing which many would call God. I prefer to call it the "Whole"= 0. If what you say is true then you are inferring the existence of three separate dimensions which would mean, Heaven, Earth, and Hell. If what you say about the greater majority is true, the greater percentage of people are failing Gods test, thus Heaven is shrinking and Hell is growing. If you agree with every input there is an output, this is not science and open to interpretation its universal mathematical logic, then the belief that we are individually selected in accordance to how well we follow a religious path is false. This is because for ZERO to be present nothing else can be, not 01 Earth or 01 hell. In Fact Zero is not present in our universe, we intuitively use it to explain mathematics. Simply nothing can exists outside of (0) or God if God is Whole! because Whole, "God" ,"(0)" is everything, thus (0) must severe itself in divide in order to allow the creation of multiple Universes or even for a Hell to exist. Thus We are all a part of the whole in severance, severance in the form of recycling energy. Many asian cultures call this spread out life force the Chi, the Greeks called it the breath or the intellect. If you still want to consider your ideas, then let you continue to contradict yourself by assuming people are born into this world as if they are on deck in a baseball game ready to dive into unreality to test their faith. Your philosophy is partly contradictory because you wish to believe we are special but some more than others including yourself and this is your main justification for being a good person constantly pitying the majority because they will mostly become demons in hell. Your better off worshiping the sun.

Understanding this article/believing this article is not to be found among the sheep. The human must be capable relentless self analysis of purpose, of spirit of soul. What is man? Why is he here? He is but a vapor that appears for a time and is gone. He is lost to himself until he believes in his own transience.

The idea collapses under the simple recognition of the age and size of the universe. Why bother writing code spanning 13.8 billion (earth) years and distances of 93 billion light-years when neither are needed to run the application? It negates "intelligence" and sound computing economics.

Hello I enjoyed your article and would like to say that I have an open mind ! To the person quoting the bible and saying ' let Jesus into your lives ' What to you think the bible is ! It's a book filled with stories and tales !! It's been changed and manipulated to herald the sheep like mentality that you seems to possess ! Open up your heart and the IS will love you unabated and not dependant on your opinions and your judgements ! Was you around when the bible was written ? No you were not so therefore you can't prove that it's real also ! Who are you to tell people that what they think is right or wrong ? Are you the creator ? I doubt that you are and that you will have to return again and again because you fail to grasp the essence on what this article is saying ! Instead you put in quotes written by someone else and then you label the people new age !! Discrimination comes to my mind !! Why don't you open your heart and love because its obvious that you have difficulty with that emotion ! Sorry to label you but if you think inside the box then your answer will be flawed !

There are a number of fallacies in this article. The existence of a simulation does not imply purpose. Something might have created it by accident, or perhaps a "godless" computer-mind created it (ironic). Even if there was a purpose, the theory says nothing as to whether the purpose was for life, humanity, planets or anything in particular. Also, and this is very important, the simulated universe theory DOES NOT imply that something ("we") injected its own consciousness into the simulation. That requires additional theories of mind - you cannot say that because the universe is simulated, we exist outside of that simulation. That's dualism, not simulation theory - and simulation theory says nothing of dualism. It neither supports nor rejects it.

It was all going well until the divine right to own gun bit. If one isn't afraid of anything including death, why the need to defend anything? What has intelligent design to do with the divine right to own pathetic and mundane killing tools?

I read proof of heaven and have been involved my whole life in the search for the real. I started out as a student of phenomenology and ended up in non dualism or advaita..I do see your matrix as a real possibility to pass the test and evolve further. to wake up .I feel behind the scenes the God who runs the show hides as consciousness.We are never far from the truth of it all.Yes infinite universes infinite possibility infinite worlds created by the supreme power is always looking through our eyes....So if it looks we all die of radiation disasters think again.AS one of my teachers told me years ago. There is no death.

Dear Mike, Your readers should take your words to heart, literally, for the time is near where this reality will be turned off for the few who are aware of this consciousness evolving into a new way of being. Of the Light! To begin anew, in a world with no darkness, a world of Light. LOVE! All I will add to your thoughts is that this planet, Gaia, was created to be a special place in the cosmos, a sacred place, as a Library of Wisdom for the entire universe, and humans as the curator for it. It's the Ark of the Covenent, the Philosophers Stone, its the Light, LOVE! The time for this cycle to begin anew is upon the human race, where the human soul will finally be Freed of the chains of usury, and the human spirit will be of the Light. It was prophesied long ago. It is time to eat the fruit from the Tree of Life, and become one with the feminine energy, the brightest Light in all the universe. Embrace the virtues of the heart, and let your spirit guide you to a new way of being, one of the Light! This veil of darkness is an illusion perpetrated by the fallen angels long ago. Don't let them win. Look inside and connect to the the Fire from within. From darkness came the fire, the Love, from our creator that began it all. TimeTraveler

Memorex or Virtual existance? Which do you choose? I personally believe in Virtual. (L.O.V.E. = Love of Virtual Existance) I believe Virtual God believes in it also. That is what mankind is in, but with a soul also. Our souls have been suppressed by others so that we are more like victims and being highly played with. Will that change? Yes! Watch out for images coming to you, they may not be the real truthful thoughts you should be following. Remember that once you are locked into a memorex file, you are at the mercy of anyone on a computer that can access that file. Hell would be a better description of where you will end up.

Oops! Forgot that some think of L.O.V.E. as Love Of Virtual Eternity. I believe either would apply, Existance or Eternity.

Every word of this is correct. I've been saying it for a couple of years. I've had 'experiences' I call shifts of consciousness, where some things have been shown to me. I've tried to articulate these experiences but this author has done it perfectly. For the record, I don't drink, take drugs or suffer from any mental illness. I cant begin to express my gratitude and relief upon having come across this article. There is comfort in company:-)

I read a science site yesterday is wonderfully explanatory as a basis for a universe. The utube film said if one thing was to be left to show the future why atoms exist is a crystal. The universe's amazing organization using crystal lattices. Without these crystal lattice composed of angles, one might fall into the belief that something else composes the universe and not atoms.

Hi Mike, nice article. It seems to me that we are stuck with and incapable of freeing ourselves from our past, our prejudices, our tradition, our habits. It is easier for us to take the "flight" to different ideals, dogmas and turn our backs on what we really are. But no dogma or fictitious concept has ever helped man to get rid of the inherent agression, greed, envy, prejudice all of us practice every day. You do not have to quote the dozens of different wars going on around the world. You can take as example, how we practice power and authority on our children, our wives and husbands, or the other people. That is agression too. But as we act such a way, we do so according to our particular, favorite ideals and concepts, which may be different from those of the others. So our "Self", the Ego, breeds all evil deeds. It is time to realize that the very people waging war against others are parts of us, even if on the other side of the world. And by hurting any man on this planet hurts us too, as we ALL are the rest of humanity. This self, this ego, is the one who constantly compares and says, I am better than the other one. It is our ego, our embedded culture and selfish experiences, that "thinks" my morals are better than the others'. But all morals of the world are immoral, as all these ideals have been established by the ego. As for your religious concepts, we live here on this beautiful Earth, and we should stop fantasizing on whether there is heaven or hell. We should face the fact that man is killing himself and ruining his environment and if he continues to do so, he will die out. Being aware of this, there will be no free will (coming from the self), but the knowing of the only ONE thruth, that life is sacred and all beings in nature are divine and that it is our RESPONSIBILITY to embrace all of them. Peace.

Almost right but karma points or new age teaching will not save you from hell only the blood of Jesus as Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Rom 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Rom 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; Jes 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Jes 64:7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. You are a false new age prophet, repent of your sins and except Jesus into your heart, then and only then will you have eternal life with this creator you talk about but know nothing of. When you except Christ as savoir and are baptised into His death and when you believe that He bore your sins on the cross then He forgives you of all iniquities as He took your place in punishment for your sins. Jes 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Jes 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and by his stripes (Wounds) we are healed. When you are then baptised as Jesus was just before He received the Holy Sprit, by going under the water which symbolises your death to sin and coming out of the water symbolises your rebirth into a spiritual baby in Christ, a new creation in Christ as you lay down all evil for Him, you start to crucify your flesh and desires to do His will. Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. You then receive the Holy Spirit, that same spirit that raised Christ from the dead and your creator comes and lives in your heart or spirit and then you overcome evil as it is not by power not by might but by His spirit that you overcome the World as Christ overcame the World Sag 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. You then receive the seed of God, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the Alpha and Omega the Beginning and the End the First and the last, the one who made it all into your temple or your body soul and spirit and you overcome the World also. 1Jo 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. And without Him / Jesus it is impossible to come to God!!! Hnd 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Joh 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

Anyway, you should be focusing on what Jesus said, not the man. Forget about worshipping the man, just concentrate on the meaning behind Jesus words. Just believing that Jesus is gonna swoop down out of the clouds and carry you to heaven is not going to help, and neither is going to church, reading the Bible, or doing rituals. Jesus already said the important thing that will help you get to the next level (closer) to God.....that is love. Practice love and unselfishness, and extend that to yourself, others, creatures, plants, and so on. That is all.

I'm sure that you think God is going to give you brownie points for spewing Bible verses all over the place. Good job, chap, here is a pat on thine back...now my good little servant, take thy place by my throne and sing praises to me. Okay, that might get old after a few billion years. So, theorically, suppose there was this fellow you know who is a Christian, and there is this grandma of yours. This Christian chap goes to church regularly, but he is not nice. He goes home and yell at his wife and kick his dog. He is obessesed with collecting coins, and he does not talk about much else. Oh, that is okay, he is a Christian so he will go to heaven, coutresy of the free ticket Jesus gave him. Now, your grandma, she never set a foot in church, nor believe any of it. A bunch of hooey she says. But she is a dear little woman, kind to everyone and very giving. So according to your theology, your grandma will be burn for eternity in he11 while this Christian guy gets pampered. Would that make God fair, loving, and impartial? I do not think so.

Whoever this is, thanks for sharing the news about Jesus! :) (@I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved) 1 year ago

I knew about all this information/scripture you shared for a very long time, but the real understanding came much much later in my life. Sometimes you just need to pray and ask God to help people understand who He is and how much He loves them.

i have accepted the Word of God as truth, understanding there are only 2 groups of people, the quick & the dead, that the quick are believers, the dead go thru life listening or ignoring their God given conscience and @ the white throne give account.. rev20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. one more thing, God is a loving God but... ps5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Jesus taught people to be forgiving, loving, tolerant, and humble. You are not any of these things- you are judgement, spiteful, and full of arrogance. In short, you are not a real Christian...just a brain washed puppet of the self-serving Church and its false doctrine belonging to a bloody tribal god.

See here, your problem is that you see the Bible as "Word of God", when it actually is not. It was written by many different people over a span of thousand years. These people had very limited education, and they were not very knowlegable about science or history...back then they only had few books. It can be proven that many of the elements in these stories were lifted directly from Egyptian, India, Sumerian, and Babylonian sources and edited in later ages. They did not have the books in one volume-- they had many scrolls, many of them now lost. It is only about 300-400 years after Christ was the Bible as we know it was combined as one volume, and even then, it went through many revisions and edits. Many other writings that did not agree with the "official" version were sought after and destroyed, the people who taught otherwise were killed. Jesus did not write any of the New Testaments, and many scholars doubt that any of his followers did, and many of the letters attributed to Paul are really forgeries. I am not saying that the Bible is completely false-- there are lot of good stuff in there, but it should be taken with grain of salt, not as the final authority. So try to keep an open mind, instead of putting God into a box. (ps I apologise for being harsh in my last comment)

Here's a useful way to read this: I translate this article by changing the words 'you' and 'we' to 'I', 'your' and 'our' to 'my', 'The Creator' to 'Myself', and so on. I feel a lot better about myself when I control myself and don't judge myself or others. Here's an example: "As you’ve probably already figured out, the vast majority of humans fail these tests. They die as bitter, selfish, substance-addicted, greed-driven minions of evil who mistakenly thought they were winning the game of life while, in reality, they were losing the far more important test of the Creator." (TRANSLATION) As I’ve probably already figured out, I fail these tests. I die as a bitter, selfish, substance-addicted, greed-driven minion of evil who mistakenly thought I was winning the game of life while, in reality, I was losing the far more important test of MYSELF. Isn't that beautiful?

Yes, our reality is a stimulation, but it is not a computer. It is far more advanced than a computer...it is matter/energy that is arranged and manipulated by a higher intelligence, of which nature we cannot even begin to comprehend.

dont make ridiculous conclusions. there is nothing that says intelligent design in that research, and you cant conclude that it must be intelligently designed because everything is based on a simple building block either. if there is a single base particle, EVERYthing will have to be based on that, including laws of physics and everything else - because that particle and its properties are what all of them are based on. actually this was the assumption in science regarding the universe coming to being all along. it has nothing to do with design or a god.
