for a dude who readily believes he's a girl, you sure are a bit of a stick in the mud about the possibilities of the universe.

Yet you continued to comment, who's upset now?

When you saw that picture by boboroad, how did you not understand that it was a simple joke, made to mock the "entire football field" trend in measuring stuff. In what world do you live in, where someone would seriously say "Our galaxy alone could fit an entire football field".
Even when you wrote your stupid response and this kweel guy started poking fun at you, you still didn't get any of it, just continued with your dumb ranting about how the universe is, in fact and contrary to popular belief, bigger than a football stadium.
So I guess my question is, what universe, dimension or plane of existence do you live in? Cause it sure as hell ain't this one.
#77 - unihornupmyass (07/24/2016) [-]
The existence of aliens is very likely according to scientists, wether they are just animals or highly evolved beings. Why they would dick around with humans, i dont know. Penis envy probably.
#25 - platinumaltaria (07/24/2016) [-]
The "drake fallacy" is my favourite: "The universe is so big that X must be somewhere".
Humans evolved on earth to deal with earth's environment. Football is basically the result of random chance, the statistical likelihood of football coming up again even on earth is basically zero. And fyi there is no evidence to indicate that life exists outside of earth, so claiming it does is ridiculous.
#49 - smudgiemuffins (07/24/2016) [-]
I agree with your sentiment that people seem far too willing to accept life elsewhere in the universe, but you're using a similar false logic to assert the non-existence of football somewhere else in the universe.
What do you mean the odds of football coming up again is basically 0? How did you calculate those odds? I'm going to assume you didn't survey planets across the universe to check if they had football, so you probably need some fancy math-y statistical models to come to such a number.
My point is that probability is not a good argument if all you have is intuition. That is precisely why "the universe is so big, what are the odds there isn't life somewhere else?" is a bad argument because I have absolutely no idea what the probability of life developing on any particular planet is.
Of course I'm not trying to assert there is in fact football somewhere else in the universe. Even if it seems silly, I'm saying that I'm not even sure how I'd go about answering that question. And if you have a method, I'd like to hear it.
#53 - platinumaltaria (07/24/2016) [-]
I'm talking about football occurring on earth: same people, same history; what's the probability of the same game coming up. The answer is not high, football's history is pretty random, as made clear by the dozens of other games it has produced.
In general football is defined as "kick ball into goal", but beyond that there are so many variables that could change: the size and shape of the pitch, goal or ball, the number of players, the playing field's material etc. Any change like this produces a different game, only one of which is football.
#57 - smudgiemuffins (07/24/2016) [-]
Your scenario doesn't make sense. If it was the same people with the same history, the probability is precisely 1. Football's history might be random in the colloquial sense, but it's not random in the technical sense. To meaningfully discuss probability, you need to vary your sample space.
Furthermore, if you're going to consider football a different game as a result of any variation, then football could only have ever been played once. No ball has ever been precisely the same weight nor has any medal been made of exactly the same material. You'll have to come up with some range of variance of things that can be meaningfully called football if you want to frame your argument this way.
#59 - smudgiemuffins (07/24/2016) [-]
You didn't answer either of my questions. To what accuracy must my pitch meet the specifications before it's no longer a football pitch? Must it be exact? Because in that case, only one game of football could ever have been played.
And again, your scenario suggests that the probability is exactly 1 that humans develop football as the size of your sample space is 1. It doesn't really matter how we define football if the circumstances under which it develops are completely unchanged.
#64 - smudgiemuffins (07/24/2016) [-]
How am I being silly? You said that you knew what the probability of football developing on Earth and you wont even tell me what football is. I'm being a pedant because you made a claim worthy of pedantry. Probability is not just a feeling, it's a mathematical concept. Precision is not optional.
My point is that your claim that the probability of football developing is very low is totally meaningless is football is a nebulously defined concept. You're making an argument analogous to those who argue that life exists somewhere else in the universe based on a hunch.
And I still don't understand how your scenario doesn't make the probability of football being developed exactly 1. What can vary if history is the exact same?
#70 - platinumaltaria (07/24/2016) [-]
Oh my god just admit you were wrong already. I never said the thing you claimed I did, so fuck right off.
I never claimed to have any knowledge about anything, read my comments again and tell me where exactly I said what you claim. I'll wait here. Meanwhile consider taking your own advice; don't throw a fit when someone challenges you. Good day.
#73 - smudgiemuffins (07/24/2016) [-]
I thought you were done arguing a few comments ago. To be honest, I engaged you in a conversation because you seemed pretty level headed and willing to discuss an interesting concept. Oops, I guess. But if you just admitted you were wrong, I'd forgive you.
If you assert that a probability is very low, you must have at least an upper bound. One that you've yet to provide me.
#30 - platinumaltaria (07/24/2016) [-]
But don't you see that that's an unfalsifiable hypothesis? It's illogical to assume that it's true, therefore we remain with the default position; that it's false, which is apparent based on current observations. The instant you find a football field in another galaxy I'll secede the point, but until then you're being silly.
#31 - kweel (07/24/2016) [-]
The absense of evidence is not the evidence of absence, I don't believe that there are football fields or humans in the universe besides from earth but I don't have proof therefore I can't say it isn't true. Claiming you know without having proof is ridicolous that is all
#32 - platinumaltaria (07/24/2016) [-]
Apparently absence of evidence is evidence of existence to you...
If I enter a room and see no ham, it is logical to say "there is no ham in this room". If I proceed to search the room for any signs of ham and find none it is logical to say "there is no ham in this room". According to you the logical thing to say is "there might be ham in this room", despite having found no indication of ham.

your're wrong, lmao

Obligatory "open mind"
My mind is open only to things that make themselves apparent. The existence of testicle dwarfs is completely possible, however they do not exist.
I very well could be proven wrong, there could be an intergalactic football association. But there's no evidence to believe it, and based on our understanding of how football came to be it seems completely obvious that it is an earth thing.
