Interesting is that I am always in the difficult position of partly agreeing/disagreeing with Atheists and simultaneously (even for opposite reasons) partly agreeing/disagreeing with Believers. Look: But also things that are unexplained are not necessarily all natural, yet that is the position that ...

You are making the statement that anything supernatural is merely unexplained natural phenomena. That is a statement of faith. A false one too, as far as I am concerned. Not really. And not even the opposite. I am saying that what is unexplained is not necessarily supernatural. These two categories...

Bizzt, I cannot say I believe in extraterrestrial life (even if I am an alien... :wink: ). I don't want to act upon faith. You say that the find is very unlikely, and I agree. But our capability is tremendously limited with respect to the universe dimensions, and therefore we should not say that bec...

My only thought is that the statement "Everything in Universe can be explained by natural means" is a statement of faith, no different than the belief in a loving creator. Since everything in the universe has not yet been explained by natural means, the statement is merely the atheist's belief that...

In other words, why didn't God create a perfect mathematical system for his universe? My answer: If God created an universe which is absolutely deterministic, there would be no way He can influence us. He would not be able to perform miracles. God cannot do anything that violate physical laws, but ...

There are no scientific evidences for UFO existence. That's a massive claim to make, and so I'm assuming you're quite an authority on this issue. Tell me, what are your qualifications and experiences with researching and investigating such things? Kurieuo. I'm glad I have some good reaction to my p...

There are no scientific evidences for UFO existence.

Therefore, I would say that believing in UFO existence is also an act of faith.

Please note that I would not confuse UFOs with aliens. Statistically, in some parts of the universe there might be several places with a life-supporting environment.

alien, my friend, i'm sorry...but you're still wrong. but, i change my stance: 4 can be proven true or false. very simple: 1)Proof--we can pretty much determine if unicorns were ever real by our ability to conjure up physical proof of their existence. since we have amassed physical proof of many ex...

Chaos theory is not a failure of determinism; it is just a challenge to the 'conventional' methods of science, which are often based on the idea that complex systems may be modeled by solving simple systems, then applying this solution in an iterative way (assuming linearity) to complex systems. Ke...

Re: Can you find any flaws in this argument?

The origin of the universe NEEDS time to start because if it never started than entropy would take over. Sorry, I don't understand what do you mean by that. An expanding universe, expanding since ever, asymptotically tending to zero (as time goes back) but never reaching zero dimensions, is compati...

why should the presence of a chaotic behavior invalidate my argument for God's existence? Marco, your argument says that the existence of mathematical laws ruling the universe is a proof of the existence of an intelligent creator. My objection is twofold. 1. The presence of chaos in the determinist...

I think you're confused about 2 things: 1) What determinism means, and 2) what a system is. If I look confused it's only because the written communication has some well known disadvantages, and I am not really managing it well. Adding more sentences to other sentences could be counterproductive for...

in classical physics, the universe is IN PRINCIPLE predictable Understood and agreed, partially. But only when we use linear mathematical laws. When we deal with non-linear mathematical laws, then it might be impossible to mathematically predict the behaviour of a system, even simple. the state of ...

Re: In my opinion, atheists would be in a worse position...

what is to stop the multiverse to become intelligent as well? The fact that the single universes do not interact each other and they do not overlap. Each single universe would have its own physical parameters, different from those of the others. Therefore, each single universe would have its own hi...

I disagree here. Regardless of whether the system is chaotic or not (as defined by Marco and also as demostrated in your example #1) the future is very predictable. Given all of the initial conditions and the proper laws to describe the elements of the system, many systems are highly predictable. T...
