our concept of information theory is a function of the universe it was developed in.
I don't think it needs to look similar to the universe's inner mechanisms just because of that.
...has the "simulated universe" hypotesis just got a slight boost from this finding?
No. The scientific name is "mantis religiosa", which tells you why praying is right.
It took a study to figure that out?
It took a study to find proof.
Only an idiot doesn't realize that, by claiming that the text is a metaphor, one can arbitrarily twist its meaning until it vaguely seems to make sense.
The bible does not disagree with reality.
Yes, it does. Only an idiot wouldn't realize that.
