    The only thing is that Tyson calls God a computer simulation programmer. Great that physicist are now coming around to the inevitable need for God

    It's interesting that everyone's needs are different.

    I support religious freedom, which means we are all free to choose

    what I do not support is government forcing religion on us, such as in the pledge and our money

    as for the topic... a link would be nice

    This sounds like fake news to me, however the "simulation" does appear to be the newest secular fad that provides a religion to the unchurched.

    I think the argument goes something like the following:

    We may someday have the ability to create simulations of the world on computers.

    If that can be done, then how can we know if we are in such a simulation?

    It may be more likely that we are than we are not.

    Neil typically classifies himself as an agnostic.

    I do agree though that the idea that this universe is a simulation does sound like 21st century metaphysics.


    Somewhere some enormous 17 year old nerd is running this simulation on his reality’s version of the Oculus Quest VR headset. Our universe will end forever when he finally meets a girl or a better video game comes along.

    the ironic thing is, it could be our collective selves that created it, and while we are in the game, we just can't remember it
