It is only through us that God lives. When we abandon him, he dies.
Not sure if these are the words of a mystic or an atheist, but whatever their intent they were spoken by the Baylor neuroscientist, David Eagleman.
Stephen Colbert’s philosophy stands in stark contrast:
It’s natural to be curious about our world, but the scientific method is just one theory about how to best understand it. We live in a democracy, which means that we should treat every theory equally.
So here’s an alternative two-step method for understanding the universe:
Step 1—Remember: Six thousand years ago, God created the heavens and the earth.
Step 2— Repeat as necessary.
Finally, these two big brains square off. And it doesn’t disappoint. It is hilarious and informative. So informative, in fact, that it blows Colbert’s character!
This whole thing might be a simulation from a civilization 2 Billion years more advanced than we are!
