Do we live in a computer simulation ?
No, but they’re unintentionally scratching around the surface of the idea of the nature of the living God.
The sheer magnitude of data is such that humans are nowhere near close to being able to work with datasets anywhere near that large.
But we do understand that the physical universe represents information, down to the movement of every single atom. All such movement is determinate; it happens according to rules. Given that, despite the fact that data volumes prohibit humans from doing it, it is theoretically possible, knowing a current state and all the rules, to, in effect, “roll forward” a model in time and know what future states will look like.
From a “physics” point of view, us “crazy” creationists would believe, therefore, in essence, that God created an initial state and created the rules as well, which would explain not only his knowing the future, but, in effect, would mean that he controlled it from the beginning, ergo, “double predestination”.
it’s pretty easy, as these things go, to demonstrate random disorder all over the place ~ this is the thesis that God not only throws dice with the universe, He throws them where even He can’t see them.
