OK, so all the atheists should read this. How could a fluke like this be a coincidence? If something were just barley off we wouldn't exist. So this just proves that there is a god. There is no way in hell that all this could have been a coincidence. so **** all you atheist bitches.

Ahem...we are one of the universe's attempts at creating life. Lots of other planets are uninhabitable.

By your logic:
"This cup of yogurt tastes really good! How is it that it tastes good and not bad? This just proves that there is a god because my yogurt is delicious."
**** you, anon

Why didn't God save the dinosaurs then? They not good enough for him?

This doesn't prove anything except you not knowing what proof is. Earth is a lucky shot and lucky shots happen

If a single thing went wrong in this process, we would not be here to comprehend that we don't exist. We are a way for the universe to know itself. Every moment a timeline that could lead to intelligent life is disrupted, but eventually one of those time-lines goes unhindered and life that can comprehend it's own existence, like us, eventually emerges. A "fluke like this" can ONLY be a coincidence.

There is only one known timeline, all other timelines are mere assumptions of faith.

Other time-lines are assumptions of probability, not faith. Many planets fall within the habitable zone. And by many I mean billions and billions. Assuming that all that we know is all that exists goes against scientific as well as religious beliefs.

Assuming that all we know is all that exists is shortsighted, I agree, but we have no reason to believe in alternative timelines, its just something that a certain sect of people like to promote because it makes them seem more logical then they really are.

I don't see how proposing the idea that life elsewhere may exist is a way for one to promote themselves as being more logical that another. It is merely a way of looking at the vastness of the universe and how if something as spectacular as life can emerge once, it can emerge again. Earth is not unique, so the life that spawned on it may not be either.

I wasn't discussing life, I was discussing timelines. To propose the possibility of alternative timelines as a part of a hypothesis is fine, but people are claiming that they are known to be factual. That is where the flaw comes in, there is no evidence at all for their existence. Guessing they might exist is one thing, but believing they do without proof is not scientific.

It is not possible to determine the fate of a universe that is no longer our own, or at least not now. It really boils down to if you subscribe to the theory that an infinite number of universes endure at any given moment. Those differing "time-lines" are the splits when in one universe, a meteor hits earth and we don't exist, and in another when it doesn't we do exist. Those different universes are caused by the randomness in nature. It's a hard theory to prove, and you're a bit naive if you claim it to be 100% fact with the knowledge we have, but it's still something that one can see as logical point to stand. If you disagree that's your own opinion, because nothing at this point is proven.

Well, that is what I have been saying, timelines are not proven.
User avatar #292 to #291 - thelegendofbob (03/19/2012) [-]
Indeed, but that does not mean they are impossible. Look at what anon has done..
User avatar #295 to #292 - chiefdatukhan (03/19/2012) [-]
Maybe timelines are possible, I do not know, but if they were we would still need to go slowly to determine how many there are and what that discovery would actually prove or disprove.
User avatar #296 to #295 - thelegendofbob (03/19/2012) [-]
There would indeed be a process and it would surely be interesting.
User avatar #298 to #296 - chiefdatukhan (03/19/2012) [-]
I do not always trust the processes employed, but I would certainly have my ears open. I theorize that there may already be some information known about this, but not such as the general public has access to.

Because life can happen like anywhere in the universe, but it might not resemble the life we know on Earth.

Flukier things have happened. You being conceived, for example.
