Future Debates about God

    It is my prediction that future debates about God will center around whether there is a God or actually a universal computer programmer.

    Take the kalam cosmological argument.

    If the universe has a cause, then the cause must be timeless, spaceless, and immaterial.  These are just concepts that are though to be "beyond" our universe.  However, if our "universe" is actually a simulation, and we are simply conscious computer pixels, then many of the theistic arguments for God, I think, with enough ingenuity, could be reworked to actually defend the idea of a virtual simulation!

    This is all speculation of course.  I think it will become more pronounced as time goes on.
