Default Re: Science Saturday: Egos on Parade (Robert Wright & John Horgan)

In regards to the free will discussion.

Sometimes, Bob can be a real dick.

Taking that what we actually know about anything is miniscule, Bob is like 4 year old who has a little toy set (modern science) and thinks this allows him to make pronouncements about everything.

Bob, and science, do not have a clue, and will never have a clue about the most fundamental aspects of life...including the question Why?

If alternate universes are possible, then what isn't? Alternate universes make as much sense as Zeus throwing lightning bolts from the sky. It's just a different way of articulating what is unknowable.

There's an expression, even a dog knows whether you tripped over him, or whether you kicked him.

Sometimes Bob doesn't seem to know the difference.

Shut up Bob! As soon as you can explain what caused the begining of everything, you can answer some of the other questions
