I already have proof that God does not exist and the Bible is false. Unfortunately this proof was given only to me. I can tell you my testimony but it is up to you if you believe me or not. See how that works both ways?
First of all, sorry for any grammar or spelling issues but English is not my first language.
The article mentions the possibility of communicating to those who created us, which, if done, would be irrefutable proof. For the religious among you, what would you do should it be proved irrefutably that we are indeed inside a simulation?
I already have proof that God exists and the Bible is true. Unfortunately this proof was given only to me. I can tell you my testimony but it is up to you if you believe me or not. But for me I am 100% percent sure that we are not in the matrix.
So if it would be proven that we are inside a simulation then that could be only possible if that experiment would have an error somewhere or if it would be a constructed lie (again with an error somewhere hidden) to mislead people.
I am just happy to be on the winning side of this endless debate. It’s also fairly easy to be on the correct side:
Step 1: Have a brain.
Step 2: Use it to think for yourself.
-> A: Don’t just absorb everything your parents tell you. Question everything and seek true understanding.
The irony of what you posted is that you were completely unable to consider even for a fraction of a second that there might not be a God. This is a result of brainwashing that dictates that should your faith ever waver you will be punished.
This type of brainwashing is very easy for humans to impose upon other humans, especially children.
The reason this negates anything you say is because it causes you to believe what you believe no matter how conclusive the evidence before you is. We could discover that we are just a simulation, receive contact from our creators that confirm it is so, and you would still be too afraid to contradict the childhood doctrine taught to you to in any way consider that it is the truth. A simulation would have told you that there is a God, and as fake as the lesson itself was you would hold tightly to it just because you were young and incapable of thinking for yourself when it was taught to you.
When I said there was proof I was not lying. Without going into details, there are things you can tell children that are ridiculously false that they will end up believing for life and under any costs. Experiments show that they pass these beliefs on to their own children who then grow up believing them again at face value, never questioning their virtue.
I exaggerated when I said the proof was only given to myself, but I wasn’t lying about the underlying concept, as I was part of such an experiment. Had I not had a brain for myself I would to this day be absolutely terrified of peacock feathers.
Luckily I have a brain and could reason for myself. Looking back it is easy to identify that the only reason I had a phobia of them in the beginning was that my mother had made it so. Back then I was truly terrified of them. Luckily I was able to reason my way out of that phobia. My sister however was not. She is to this day deathly terrified of peacock feathers.
Religion works the same way. You either reason your way out of it or remain scarred for life from it. Even a message from our simulation’s creators would not break you free from what you were told as a child.
