Submission + - Slashdot User Starts-up Effort Behind Religions based on Universal Simulation (

eyenot writes: It's not really all that heady or weird. Basically, recent news has shown us that there are now some somewhat-rigorous mathematical theories supporting the hypothesis that our entire universe is actually a simulation (moreover: that any sentient beings might have a high probability of considering their enclosing universes to be simulations.) Sorry, no links, look it up yourself.

One slashdot user has cavorted to begin an actual doctrinalized religion based on these theories and it's probably looser than you already imagined.
