2.(God taken into account) In short, God has a plan. Something really awesome. His plan could infact just be the possibility above, but it's something huge, something massive, something that beats any sci-fi space novel you could ever read!... not that a good episode of the Chapelle's Show won't do that, but you know what I mean! Personally, I believe God wants us to explore the universe and understand the laws that govern it, but I'm sure the Revalations although symbolism do forshadow an incredible battle between good and evil, and this planet's just not big enough to host something so paramount.

This sounds more like [u]A Wrinkle In Time[/u] by... freaking damn it! I can't remember any author's name these days. Must be the stinking darkness lying over my head.

I was thinking something much bigger, by the way. A Wrinkle In Time showed the universe at the mercy of a big machine that could be beaten by talking to it. Pfft! Weak chi...


No wonder you don't like the book. The "big machine" is just a small part of a whole that is known as evil. Oh wait, did you just skim through the cliff notes?

Re: Richard Feynman is a woozle
Sidelined, I'd have to agree with B2P here. You are using the "appeal to inappropriate authority" fallacy.

Here is an example of one:

World famous pediatricians doctor Thomas and doctor Smith are absolutely convinced that today's youths have no morals whatsoever.

See anything wrong with this sentence?

Re: Richard Feynman is a woozle
True. In the old days, philosophers were often the ones that told people what's what.

Re: Richard Feynman is a woozle
It is my opinion that B2P is a moron.

By the way, I'm sorry for calling you a moron

Re: Causation and the universe
Have you been living under a rock? Anyone with the least interest in science should know about this for a long time now.
