So, you need to crate a VR app as part of a certain course of yours? Where do you study?
"Ahem. There's no comprehensive explanation for the existence of the universe. Only religion claims to explain it. It's no evidence but it definitely explain a lot about why people tend to be religious: it's the only explanation we have so far. I'm not saying it's the correct explanation, but you don't really have to look very far to see why people are inclined to be religious. If you think about what we know, first everything was condensed into a very tiny point, and suddenly there was a humongous universe. For all we know, everything was just waiting there forever waiting to explode into a huge universe spontaneously.
And yes, I believe that's the most plausible theory there is right now. I don't think it's a good one, but until there's a better one, this will have to do. But it sounds insane and leaves an interesting question open: where did the original point of matter come from? Don't be so surprised people have a hard time thinking religiously. There's probably other reasons as well for faith, but I think this is the one that's related to reason the most."
Absence of a sufficient explanation of something does not mean "GOD DID IT" that's an argumentum ad ignorantiam fallacy.
Your reasoning is as follows:
1) Assume invisible sock stealing leprechauns exist.
2) Socks go missing.
3) PROOF - invisible sock stealing leprechauns did it!
1) Assume some metaphysical agent exists called god who can create Universes.
2) A Universe exists.
3) PROOF - God did it!
Problem is that this isn't even a valid argument, let alone a sound one. The structure is completely wrong.
The fundamental issue is the presupposition you've made that invisible sock stealing leprechauns exist (or god in your analogy). If I presuppose that such creatures exist, I can logically posit them as a POTENTIAL solution to missing socks, but it doesn't necessitate that they are responsible even if they did exist.
You would do well to enroll in a formal logic course to improve your reasoning skills and avoid logical pitfalls.
It's also funny you're suggesting me to take a course on formal logic, because I've had one low-level course on it. While I haven't had any any more comprehensive courses on it, I do have quite a bit of math and programming experience so I have a pretty strong grasp of logic. You chose the wrong victim, pal.
This should be hilarious. Logic is my occupation, your elementary school level course clearly taught you nothing at all.
It's not even a metaphysically possible explanation due to the fact that, epistemically-speaking, such a being is not proved to be possible.
Might as well posit a flying Unicorn farted the Universe into existence. It's stupid at best.
How is this my "final warning" when I haven't even been asked to stop posting, haven't been given ANY warning, not even a hint?

Season's greetings! I would like to personally invite you to join this year's PC Secret Santa event, thread link below. Please drop by and help us make this holiday season a bit more merry for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you there!
A fellow duckduckgo user! (Saw you post in that Kinect 2.0 conspiracy thread). Just wanted to say hi, and share my love of a fantastic search engine. (!bangs... so addicting. I can't live without them now).

It's a bit hard to see because the trailer didn't really show too much, but the graphics seemed pretty bad. I mean, it seems as if they've only 'improved the resolution' and that's it. I know it's probably taken a lot more work than just that, but the end result looks like that....
Goodnightmoon said: celador said: the whole 'the only people who are complaining are those with no interest in the game and Nintendo anyway' argument is back in full force I see. Hate to tell you but you can still be a Nintendo fan while criticising them You can't, however, judge something before you try it, is a bit suspicious how those that haven't played the game are...
Well, you can use Twitter in many different ways. You can tweet actively, you can just follow, perhaps you only like retweeting, perhaps you like engaging in discussions. Pick your choice! Personally I don't tweet much but I follow a lot of interesting accounts, and I like retweeting when they have good stuff I want to share. Sometimes I might also engage in discussions, but not often. Mostly I...
