Does simulation theory legitimize religion?

In my 20’s I still identified with the religion but I edged further and further away from practicing it.

Undeniable Phenomena

  • Phenomenon is an effect which is observed; Your muscles getting bigger as a result of exercising, getting drunk after drinking alcohol, the tides going in and out, etc
  • Theory is an unseen cause and effect relationship that explains why something is happening; gravitation, evolution of the species, the mitochondrial theory of aging, etc
  • UFOs
  • Near-death experiences
  • Astral projection and remote viewing
  • The Mandela Effect
  • Ghosts and paranormal phenomena
  • Cryptozoology

And there’s certainly more than one such incidence of metaphysical phenomena…

There’s this undeniable phenomenon of UFOs yet the theory of UFOs as extraterrestrial aliens is totally illogical and nonsensical.

The Simulation Theory

  • He suggests that the findings of quantum physics and the observable effects of relativity make sense within a digital universe.
  • And how the concept of the 5-dimensional holographic universe is consistent with the simulation theory.

Pragmatic Faith

  • It provides a loving social circle.
  • It provides a moral system that guides us into being functional, productive members of society.
  • It gives a wonderful hope for something better after this life ends.
  • The evangelical faith I used to practice was an especially potent gateway to transcendent flow states.

Ergo, I’m willing to revisit my old faith and can finally shrug off the nihilistic burden of atheism.
