i realised that such a universe with so many laws we are only coming to grips with has to have some sort of fundamental "law giver" - for the want of a better word
Law is an unfortunate word, there is no such thing, the Universe just is
(exists). We as an intelligent species try to make sense of how it works. Physicists have developed theories and formulas that try to describe how it works and decided to label some of the basic patterns of the Universe as laws, which leaves the erroneous notion that the Universe is being governed by something, when it isn't.
its conceivable that the laws of the universe are not evidence enough for the supernatural- of course- but
the other option
thats the stupidest motherfucking thing ive ever heard- and i watched star wards episode one
Multiverse is just a hypothesis at this point, but in any case, reality doesn't have to adhere to what you or anyone thinks how it should be. The fact that you can't comprehend it is irrelevant. No one can truly comprehend that the speed of light is independent of the frame of reference, or in other words, that no matter at what speed and direction the observer is moving relative to the light, he will allways measure the same speed. This is completely counter-intuitive yet we know by running experiments that it is so, and the theoretical grounds are pretty solid in this respect as well.
the argument for atheism being that theres no scientific evidence
- thats bullshit too- because you have to be atheistic about the existence of the soul- and that to me is the bigger flaw
for some strange reason we are programmed to believe we have souls- or this concept of a greater existence- but you cant account for that bullshit with darwinian ass buggery evolution- it just-does-not-work
you have to be a stupid gullible motherfucker to fall for that shit-
it is real
the soul at the very least
I don't believe I have a soul. I understand I am a set of atoms. A very complex and evolved structure but still just that. What we call consciousness is the product of physical interactions going in our brains, nothing else.
I don't know what you mean by programmed. Yes, most of us have been programmed by the society we have been born to, to understand our consciousness as something supernatural. If you meant genetically programmed, that's bullshit.
and the supernatural is something tangible and- you can feel it- but what you cant do is replicate it in a science lab- so fucking what
No, what you feel is natural, it can only be. There are things that science hasn't explained or delved into yet because in detail they are very complex and data intensive. There is still a lot to know about the brain and why it thinks a certain thing when given a certain input. Hell, we're probably still ignorant of some of the input we take in.
