So luminiferous and aethereal! Almost magical like!
As an aside, I've always felt that an omniscient god, by definition, obviates free will.
Me too. To me the most crucial feature of free-will is the idea that one "could have chosen otherwise". If God is omniscient the universe must be deterministic hence you couldn't have chosen otherwise.
But then again, many serious thinkers disagree that determinism destroys free-will...
You claim to possess powers of precognition and telepathy. That pretty much qualifies you as "a psychic".
"What is time?" The question is so difficult. I'm always surprised when people offer glib answers along the lines of "time is change" or "time is entropy". This says to me that most people don't even understand the question.
Feynman said it best:
"What is time? Don't even ask me. It's just too hard to think about."
I know exactly what someone is going to say, and then they say it
That happens to everyone occasionally. It doesn't mean you're psychic.
Maybe, but a lot physicists seem very keen on eternalist interpretations of time in which every instant is just as real as any other.
That's a little unfair. Many religious people I've spoken to grapple with the so-called "problem of pain". It actually ranks rather highly amongst the reasons people become atheists.
To say that "it's all scripted" really isn't true...
Well, yeah, when you systematically slaughter millions of priests, nuns and clergy and burn down all the churches, you tend to "solve" the problem of religion to some degree...
One guy cut across hundreds of employees and thousands and thousands of pages of engineering documents
yeah, but that was Feynman. He could just stick his hand into the aether and pluck out answers.
IANASE, but 100 million lines of code sounds a little over the top. Can someone verify this?
No, it's "LEGO"
It's quite obvious really. Time actually is speeding up, and has been since the big bang, at which point time was actually stopped. Thus each person gets to experience time speeding up within their own lifetime.
The discrepancy between old people and young people at any given time is due to old people having memories of when time really was going slower, so in comparison the current rate of time feels extra fast to them.
Groening ran it early on when it was good.
And he admits the shows gotten worse...
you'd be more worried about nonlinear FEA software at this point
They can do their rainbow plots in CAD.
Select colour red -> Flood fill.
