            No one thinks telling you that your imaginary friend isn't real is novel or groundbreaking. People have been telling the religious their imaginary friends aren't real for all of human history. At various points we even had the religious acknowledge that, no, Wolf didn't literally vomit the moon into the sky because Coyote tricked Snake into feeding Cow poisoned grass, its just a story about how the consequences of seemingly small actions can and will be far greater than you can initial comprehend.

              and people have been pointing out that materialism is incoherent for all of history, and typically these people are the ones we remember. there’s a reason you know about plato and aristotle and not lucretius. because your ideas don’t rely on any sort of privileged knowledge or reasoning, they can be shat out by anyone, and they have been repudiated by greater minds in their own time. the idea that your own little system is as arbitrary historically as anyone else’s should probably threaten that view, but you’d rather throw out facile redditisms than confront that

                No, that's a very recent evolution of the religious mind virus. But the religious always misrepresent interpretations of reality to better suit their skydaddy. Like talking about how because some scientists were religious, that means religion is scientific. Please consider this a response to your other post,

                You realise a literal priest theorised the big bang with this in mind because atheists in the soviet union were shilling steady state theory? Don’t try to “acktually” me when you’re blatantly less informed. The big bang is a massive boon to my own views, it demonstrates that materiality had a finite beginning, that time began. Ie, there “was” (is) a state of timelessness conditioning it.

                . Also please put more thought into the structure and formatting of your posts, you're so excited/ESL that they're really hard to read.

                It’s funny because your lack of education does actually come through again here- he did argue that the universe was eternal. So yes, tacitly, he argued against a finite instant where the universe began. Funnily enough thomas aquinas was one of the first philosophers to argue that the universe must have come to be a certain finite amount of time ago. The big bang doesn’t support materialism at all. if the opposite were true atheists would have a much stronger argument

                Dualism = there is material and immaterial reality. Your moronic failure to be coherent about material reality has nothing to do with immateriality, which I only ever claimed conditioned material reality. Nobody has argued that non physical forces are influencing physics. I think you’re genuinely too stupid to formulate actual responses to what you read, you’re just throwing out nonsense that has nothing to do with what is being argued

                if you actually took the time to research and understand the cultural and societal impact Christianity left on european culture (and even the Earth for that matter, civilizing south american savages), you would begin to analyze the at if the thing would actually insert of itself in the synonymous inherent absolute if which the does happen

                the argument about smart people being atheists is nonsense. the argument about smart people being christians is also nonsense. if there's any correlation, it's that stupid people are more likely to just go along with what they're taught, where smart people are more likely to critically analyze and explore other options. but their intelligence doesn't tell you anything about their ultimate conclusion.

                because you're always going to come back to the same answer. there might be a god and there might not. there is no way to validate it, either way. you have no choice but to take it on faith because every line of reasoning inevitably doubles back on itself. if it serves any purpose at all, all the theology and philosophy is there mainly to help you believe that you are smart and have shit figured out. that's it.

                I'm going to expand on my thoughts here a little. mostly because you seem like a cool person that is actually willing to have a conversation. I don't think these lines of investigation undermine faith, I think they strengthen it. faith is more meaningful, at least to me, if you recognize it for what it is - belief in something better than what we observe, even in the absence of all evidence.

                to your point about trying to get people the good word before they hit rock bottom, I hear you, but it's important to recognize the limits of your agency too. what you can and can't do, and the things you can do that have real impact. because other people are on their own journeys. some of them will have to hit rock bottom before their hearts are open. some will be more willing to listen. all you or I can do is live the best example we can, let the light shine out, and be prepared for when people do ask. in the meantime you put as much of god's love back out in to the world as you can manage, and try to focus it on the people who need it the most not just the ones you think deserve it.

                As far as the celestial clockmaker argument - frankly I think it's crap, and I never use it. It basically comes down to arguing for ignorance as truth. you don't understand something so it can't exist? cmon. but it's also, to my previous point, kind of meaningless. a god who placed every bone and organ in you like an engineer, versus one who set the initial conditions of the universe so that we'd evolve 10 billion years later amount to the exact same thing. I see every post on here that says
                >that's just logical
                as being the same thing: a symptom of humans' instinctual need to be right. but just like our instinctual needs for hunger, or warmth, or sex, that instinct shouldn't just be fed constantly and unquestioningly. it serves a role to our animal survival, but it isn't what we really are. If god gave us these inquisitive minds, then he did so with the intent they be used.

          the idea idea is that the necessary reality, the one which doesn’t need to come to be, and isn’t conditioned on anything, can’t be material, because material things are all subject to those conditions. either you’re too dumb to comprehend this or wilfully ignorant and intellectually lazy. look up the principle of sufficient reason

              yes that’s the whole point of even positing this in the first place. “coming to be” itself is a quality of material things because their changes of state necessitate time. hence, the “something instead of nothing” all reality is contingent upon can’t be time bound, it has to be eternal, so it can’t be material. you don’t even have to call this god, but materialism itself is patently moronic

As i’ve just said and you’ve ignored, the whole reason lematiare was excited about the big bang is because it proved that time was finite- the universe began. From here you can easily argue that the system is parasitic on a state of timelessness which is not material. Again, atheists at the time were trying to argue that the universe had existed forever, the steady state theory, because this precludes any need for an instigating force. When people say something can’t come from nothing, they’re arguing against morons who think matter generated itself.

                Energy can however be distributed to the point where it is completely inert, by the laws of thermodynamics. So if the universe was eternal, ie, if matter wasn’t conditioned on other reality, this would have already happened. You either have to argue that energy generated itself from literal nothingness or that energy existed… forever, in a condensed state, until it randomly decided to expand. Which begs the question of why this happened at one time rather than another, or why the heat death hasn’t already occurred.

You are stating that its possible for matter to have no gravitational pull, because you think gravity is energy. This is incorrect. Gravity is not energy, its a four dimensional divot in space-time, which is provably increased by the amount of energy present in even a single particle (read: velocity).

                This means matter is perfectly capable of always existing. That following the heat death of the universe, the matter in the universe will slowly coalesce again. Because gravity is not energy, gravity is the effect of matter on the fabric of reality.

                This is literally true, moron. A quantum field is a place where interactions between forms of energy occur. Since mass has a relationship with gravity, and mass and energy can be equally converted, it stands to reason that energy in the form of matter is influential on gravity. You’re genuinely too low IQ to follow any sort of argument because you’re always looking for some absurd gotcha. You’re saying that if energy isn’t subject to gravity, matter can’t be a form of energy, which is nonsense

You can convert something into different forms and they can gain new properties and relations which were not configured in their original form. Literally all of physics works on that principle, it tends toward simplicity. You’re inventing some non existent caveat that because energy isn’t “subject to gravity” (whatever that means) then matter cannot be a state of energy. A quantum field is an area of probability in the simplest terms. I’m sorry but your high school tier science isn’t going to save you here

It’s how a bomb works. They are different STATES, if they were merely properties of the other, then everything would behave simultaneously as both matter and energy, and nothing would be able to physically occur since nobody would be able to convert the movement of something into kinetic energy.

                I literally refuted this here:

                Energy can however be distributed to the point where it is completely inert, by the laws of thermodynamics. So if the universe was eternal, ie, if matter wasn’t conditioned on other reality, this would have already happened. You either have to argue that energy generated itself from literal nothingness or that energy existed… forever, in a condensed state, until it randomly decided to expand. Which begs the question of why this happened at one time rather than another, or why the heat death hasn’t already occurred.

                You moved past that to focus on some autistic crap (that you ended up being wrong about)

                So like I said, your argument is that because we don't know what motivated the big bang, it must therefore have been god.

                This just comes down to a difference of personal motivation. Your motivation to embrace your given belief system stems from your desire to be provided with a complete and total explanation of all the mysteries of the universe so that you can stop worrying about them. My motivation is to avoid self-deception at all costs, even if it leads to uncertainty and discomfort. Because uncertainty and discomfort, if endured, result in personal growth. Which isn't actually far off from what your book says, but unfortunately your book is also a tome of contradictions that gives you a pass for not practicing what you preach.

                Holy frick. You dense fricking moron. No, it isn’t creating energy, there is a finite amount of energy in the universe. It generates kinetic energy by converting other forms of energy. No energy is created. These are the atheists calling you anti science, they don’t even fricking understand the basic laws of thermodynamics

                none of this is relevant. even if you had the answer to every question in cosmology and physics, even if you had an infinite lifespan and personally went out and mapped and studied every star in the universe, it wouldn't tell you anything about whether god exists.

                It doesn't matter what you think, because the properties of energy/matter and spacetime mean our material reality can have easily existed forever. That the big bang was after a previous universe's heat death, and was the result of sufficient inert matter coalescing to a single point, and being subjected to sufficient gravitational pressure to cause nuclear reactions.

                I’m saying infinite time is an incoherent concept, given how energy works. It’s really not that fricking hard to understand. You don’t seem to grasp infinite. It means prior to this moment, OR ANY MOMENT, an infinity of time has passed. Ie, heat death, a time sensitive event, must have already happened, given that time literally goes back infinitely.

                No, its really down to you not being able to really express yourself well or comprehend what others are saying.

                People have already, exhaustively, described how a heat death of the universe isn't "the end of time," because gravity works no matter how energy/matter/mass is distributed.

                And i’m saying time cannot coherently be infinite because according to you we should exist in a gravity void right now. Again, INFINITE, it doesn’t matter where I am in time, infinity means this must have already occurred. But time is clearly not infinite

                at heat death there are no divots. spacetime is flat. nothing can coalesce, because everything is evenly distributed. the net gravitational force on every particle is zero. that's the definition of heat death. there is no energy vector left, anywhere.
                if that definition doesn't apply to the system you're describing, then that system hasn't hit heat death yet. it still has undistributed energy in it, in some form.

                You are now saying at the heat death of the universe, there is no mass. That all matter and energy are destroyed. This contradicts your ninth grade education.

                Aha, there's the problem. I get what you're saying now. Nobody claims that this is the case. As far as we can tell time does not extend infinitely into the past. The events of our observable universe did begin alongside the formation of time, and that's when entropy kicked off. Time may extend indefinitely into the future, we don't know, but that's another issue.

                Uh, well to put it more clearly - my argument is that we've got good reason to believe, based on empirical observations, that time does not extend infinitely into the past. So your arguments about infinite time are based on assumptions that are demonstrably wrong. Does that clear things up?

                Energy can't be created but matter can convert into energy which means there is more energy. The argument that there isn't more energy because matter is just energy in another state and therefore there's the same amount of energy as before is purely semantic, and again it argues against the need of an external supernatural force and not for it.

                Here are several posts of you being objectively wrong about the law of conservation of energy, often with rhetorical questions

                so now you're back to the idea enough mass can't generate enough gravity to generate heat/energy. That simple pressure can't generate heat.

                >but that’s not the only thing that can move it

                Oh I see, finally. you're saying god can move it too, yes?

                >a materialistic model is incoherent

                The properties of matter, and how it can generate energy simply by having enough of it in one place, means matter did not need to be created.

                In many of theses posts you even specify "energy will be created AFTER all energy in the universe is expended" meaning, created, not converted. You were objectively wrong. Not semantically, just objectively wrong. You are stupid.

            Yes, if you make certain assumptions about the universe and its contents and follow that logic to the conclusion that something must exist that is unlike anything we can or will ever observe, and if you then claim that this unknowable thing is a specific god, then you can also claim that this specific god's nature and teachings about the afterlife etc. etc. are also true.

            At what point is this supposed to persuade anyone, though? At most you've given me a reason to think there was some kind of first cause. Sure, maybe. So what?

                and people who don’t understand basic high school physics are on yours?

                I'm claiming the properties of matter do not necessitate a creator. It can have always existed. that gravity isn't energy, that gravity won't suddenly stop working after the heat death of the universe.

                and in the post I linked you ignored again, when we first started this discussion, I repudiated that

                Energy can however be distributed to the point where it is completely inert, by the laws of thermodynamics. So if the universe was eternal, ie, if matter wasn’t conditioned on other reality, this would have already happened. You either have to argue that energy generated itself from literal nothingness or that energy existed… forever, in a condensed state, until it randomly decided to expand. Which begs the question of why this happened at one time rather than another, or why the heat death hasn’t already occurred.

                So like I said, your argument is that because we don't know what motivated the big bang, it must therefore have been god.

                This just comes down to a difference of personal motivation. Your motivation to embrace your given belief system stems from your desire to be provided with a complete and total explanation of all the mysteries of the universe so that you can stop worrying about them. My motivation is to avoid self-deception at all costs, even if it leads to uncertainty and discomfort. Because uncertainty and discomfort, if endured, result in personal growth. Which isn't actually far off from what your book says, but unfortunately your book is also a tome of contradictions that gives you a pass for not practicing what you preach.

                No it isn’t. You can read the post I linked and see explicitly that this isn’t what i’m saying. I am saying it is incoherent for a contingent series of things to be the grounds of reality. You ignore that, and embark on a paragraph of pseudo psychological cope trying to attack me instead of the argument. You’re dumb, dude. It’s okay to accept it.

                It's actually the opposite. It's incoherent for a series of things that *aren't* contingent to be the grounds for reality. Which is besides the point really since both arguments are contingent, they're just contingent on different things.

                I'll also add that it's a little disingenuous, and again hypocritical, to accuse me of "attacking you instead of the argument" and then just blatantly call me dumb in the very next sentence.

                Do I just need to copy and paste the post? You’re saying that it’s incoherent for reality itself to be founded on something that is necessary, uncaused and self sufficient. That makes no sense. I’m saying that “energy” is still contingent, it is still parasitic on other elements of reality to exist. Back to what I said, if it wasn’t, if it did exist unconditioned and eternally, then the heat death of the universe would have already occurred, because infinite time would have elapsed. We know this isn’t the case. Therefore, material reality is contingent on a reality which is not bound by constructs of time or space, ie, immaterial, atemporal. See how I actually make points and don’t spend half the post psychoanalysing why you made a point instead? My insults are brief and come at the end of an actual argument, moron

                I'll try this one more time. Your theory of existence is also that reality is founded on something uncaused because you believe god existed without cause. Either the big bang theory existed out of nowhere or god existed out of nowhere. Same difference.

                Your argument that if infinite time exists it would have elapsed already is also pants on head moronic and makes absolutely no sense. It's a blatant contradiction.

                no… Black person, learn to read. I cannot fricking state the same thing 50 times. the ENTIRE point, is that this terminus, this necessary, self justifying, ETERNAL thing that is somethingness instead of nothingness, cannot be material, because material things are contingent, and not self justifying. ergo, the universe came from something, because of its fundamental structure of causality and temporality, which necessitates that, and whatever caused it, must necessarily NOT have those limiting qualities.

                >it’s blatant contradiction
                Why

                Yes, if you make certain assumptions about the universe and its contents and follow that logic to the conclusion that something must exist that is unlike anything we can or will ever observe, and if you then claim that this unknowable thing is a specific god, then you can also claim that this specific god's nature and teachings about the afterlife etc. etc. are also true.

                At what point is this supposed to persuade anyone, though? At most you've given me a reason to think there was some kind of first cause. Sure, maybe. So what?

                once again you’re moving goalposts. all i’ve done is argue against materialism, you’re inventing a stance for me because you can’t rebut it. I don’t believe materialism is true, i’ve demonstrates why.

                So we're back where we were an hour plus ago. You think that because we can't currently run causality all the way up the chain of contingencies, they must not exist. That because we don't know what caused the big bang, that can only mean that nothing caused the big bang, which means god must exist. Well first of all, the argument that an answer must not exist because we don't have it is inherently disingenuous, and second, who is to say that the chain of contingencies is not infinite if time is also infinite? You're holding the cosmos so arbitrary entirely human standards of reality and think this somehow argues in favor of your belief system being self evident rather than purely human, which is what it actually is.

                It's not ad hominem for me to suggest that your reliance on recursive arguments stems from your belief in a religious system based entirely on recursive principles.

                WE CAN, we HAVE. We know the properties of energy and matter well enough to say they aren’t completely self explanatory and eternal components of reality itself- they are a fundamental part of how the material universe is configured, the material universe which we know began to exist at an instance in time.What caused the big bang does not matter, the fact is that every element of the big bang is adherent to rules which cannot coherently be generated by it. The force of existence all this is parasitic on cannot be “within” the system itself. It’s similar to how mathematics works, there’s always a contradiction in a closed system that needs an additional super system to justify it. I’m saying that immaterial laws are this super system, the ideal laws of non contradiction which govern the remit of matter.
                >time is infinite
                I don’t believe it is, as i’ve stated before, because it was heat death would have occurred. You don’t actually respond to arguments, you just repeat yourself endlessly

                Time dilation is just time relative to an observer. You could theoretically stand outside of time and see everything occurring at once in some incoherent undifferentiated blob of relations. But there is still contingency within that blob, and we know energy will dissipate to a point where it becomes inert eventually, given enough time. If it existed forever, this would have happened

                You realize the giant ass black hole at the center of our galaxy is dilating time, right? The velocity of our orbit around the sun is as well. Also the velocity around the center of the galaxy. Also the velocity from the center of the universe/everything else.

                Basically you're touching on a way to calculate the earth's objective velocity via the difference between how old the universe is, when the heat death should've occurred, and the difference between. its fricking relativistic

                you don’t understand relativity either lmao. relativity is not saying time doesn’t exist, it’s saying your point in time is relative to where and how you observe it. it doesn’t mean that essentially processes of matter can be delayed indefinitely. either heat death will occur given time, or it never will, which is what you’re arguing. you’re stating there has been infinite time, it doesn’t matter what angle I perceive that time from, these processes will still occur

                >I don’t believe it is, as i’ve stated before, because it was heat death would have occurred
                Which makes no sense. I have to repeat myself because you continue to repeat yourself. Your argument that "if time was infinite it would have reached its finite end by now" is just pure gibberish.

                It’s not a cop out. I think your mind is genuinely incapable of wrapping itself around this. I’m not appealing to knowledge we don’t have- I have not once done this. I am saying logically, from what we already know, the system is not self justifying.
                >if time were infinite it would have reached its finite end
                You’re the one claiming time is infinite, i’m saying it cannot be, because then, from laws we can observe are true, it would have ended

                You are doing the opposite of appealing to knowledge we don't have. You're claiming that knowledge we don't have simply cannot exist, as evidenced by the fact that we don't have it. This is an argument that is at best disingenuous and at worst just plain stupid.

                No i’m not. Quote where I did that. I said, what we do know about matter makes it incoherent to call it self generating or justifying. I’m not appealing to what we don’t know, because what we do know is enough. Nothing we can learn about material reality is going to change that logically, it is bound to rules that superexist it, and that it itself is contingent on several existing conditions. Nothing we could ever learn would contradict that. You don’t understand what a priori means, there are essential logical rules that are not derived empirically

                well done refuting yourself- heat death exists, so infinite time cannot exist

                You are genuinely too moronic to follow this. If time is infinite, and heat death occurs in a certain remit of time, no matter where I am, it has already happened

                hello brainlet

                >for some reason brainlet thinks giving this series of things a name like “the universe” confers it attributes beyond its component parts
                the idea idea is that the necessary reality, the one which doesn’t need to come to be, and isn’t conditioned on anything, can’t be material, because material things are all subject to those conditions. either you’re too dumb to comprehend this or wilfully ignorant and intellectually lazy. look up the principle of sufficient reason
                >b-but that’s just moving causality back
                no it isn’t. it’s saying a self creating materiality is incoherent, and positing that being itself is immaterial. there’s no need for further regress after that

                except you clearly and objectively exist in a period of time where the universe has not undergone "heat death."

                biblical god doesn't really have his shit together a lot of the time.
                which is fine, in general terms most of the gods throughout human history that we have records on have not had their shit together by any stretch. gods get up to all kinds of shit, often without much of a plan. that's fine.

                it really only becomes a logical roadblock when you start to try and claim god is infinite / omniscient / omnipotent, and start bending over backward trying to explain why an entity with infinite foresight seems to frick up so often. but that's not really in the bible anywhere, it's just something youth pastors use to try and avoid answering questions about birth control.
