Belief in God vs belief in the holographic universe.

This is an interesting piece. Not only did I enjoy the the the topic but I also enjoyed the part of how many intellectuals have made the transition from analyzing fundamental Christianity to the social justice movement and Islam as they have become a more immediate threat to personal liberty and western society as a whole.

I was not sure as to put this into religion or philosophy. Please move it if need be.

Don't have time to read the link now.

I don't see the title question as a one or the other.

OK, I watched about half, and it was "blah, blah, blah" and going nowhere.
"I used to be a militant Atheist, now I don't put that on my social media, but I still don't believe in God, blah, blah, blah, Liberals want to sexualize children, blah blah blah, I'm going to my god daughters confirmation to stand for her and people made nasty comments, blah, blah, blah"

Just a little too self absorbed, and not much in the way of a point...
Thanks from Daws77

That's pretty close to where my beliefs have evolved. We know too little, have too little evidence on whether God exists, or on the nature of "God," to say God doesn't or does exist.

And the holographic angle, think of the Planck length. Nothing is shorter than the Planck length. It's the resolution of the holograph!!

Interesting video. Thanks Sab.
Thanks from Sabcat

Some theists and atheists simply cannot handle any challenge of their own beliefs. Too bad for you.
