Re: Weird Stuff and Mass Extinctions

When dino's died out, and men couldn't ride them anymore, they invented the car. It was all part of the master plan.

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"

me: I disagree that P1 and P2 imply that the cause must be non-physical. The processes in the universe are basically transformations : movement in space, interactions between particles, energy and space itself. Why could something physical, [more]

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"

How useful is the notion of determinism at the quantum level if all outcomes from a given cause are possible?

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"

P1: All that is physical was caused

If P1 is true, then the cause must be nonphysical (otherwise it too would have to have a cause).


An equally likely explanation is that a particle created in the HLC experiment on [more]

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"

I disagree - IFF means that the Q and R are equivalent, so it'd be just as true to say "R is the necessary cause of Q" as the other way around.
Mathematical proofs don't really have causation as we normally think of it, since

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"



P1 All that is physical is contained in the universe
P2 The universe was caused (to come into existence)

If (P1 and P2) are true, then the cause from P2 has to be non-physical. If it were physical it wold be contained in the

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"

"If the universe contains all that is physical and the universe was caused, then in that scenario, the universe must have had a non-physical cause."

I can also put it this way: If B is a subset of A, then A could not have been

Re: When the Obvious Hits the Wall

True conversation that happened last night.

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"

Math is a language that picks and chooses according to what we observe, and then it predicts new observables and relationships between the things that we already know. This leads to new math and new experiments to check them out, and so on...

Re: A Question on "Intelligence"

Doing that, all I can come up with is energy either always or first. It's ubiquitous, it rearranges itself to produce everything in the universe, it turns virtual particles into real particles, and it gives those particles mass. I see no reason [more]

Re: Real Science vs ID Propaganda

Let's take that bicycle you know is physical. It is made up of stuff like bosons, which are defined mathematically. You got two options. You can confer the property of "physicality" to some unknown thing that is completely described [more]

Re: Real Science vs ID Propaganda

Ultimately, what we know of nature is what we observe. Mathematics provides a model by which we can predict the observations that will be made under certain conditions. How far te model maps to physical entities is a more tricky matter. Take [more]

Re: Real Science vs ID Propaganda

NG : It is an error to presume that because we can only use mathematics to describe physical reality, that only an intelligence could have created the universe. After all, math is a man made language.
