Do you believe in the possibility that the entire universe that you and I are both currently existing in is nothing more than a computer simulation? If that would be the case, what do you think the motives of our programmer(s) would be, and if we are indeed living in an artificial world and it/he/she/them is in complete and total control over our fabricated reality, would that not technically make them our God(s)? I am agnostic but I do believe this is a very real possibility, and seeing how fast technology is advancing, it wouldn't surprise me that in a couple or more thousands of years from now human beings would have the technology to simulate an entire universe, or at the very least an entire planet. If the above is true, how would that affect you knowing you were living in a simulation? Would that make you believe in an afterlife and the possibility of a heaven or hell?
