  • It's good to be mildly skeptical to remain sane. But too much of it will make you a douche.

Sometimes I wonder if the whole universe is a form of massive computer program. Considering the size and everything in this universe, there has to be some bugs and glitches. It's not a perfect cosmos. Some bugs here, some glitches over there. I wonder if so-called supernatural phenomenons are actually the results of 'glitches' in this universe.

What if Jesus was one of those glitches? What if even 10% of his miracles in the gospels have a kernel of truth, thanks to some amazing universal bug happened to Jesus?

Surely it's beyond blasphemous to call Jesus a glitch in the cosmos, but that's the very reason why I entertain myself with such thought, as an amateur blasphemer.

They came with a Bible and their religion. stole our land, crushed our spirit, and now they tell us we should be thankful to the Lord for being saved.

This is total blasphemy :)

If this were so, perhaps the glitch was fixed and that's why we haven't seen any miracles since.

If the universe were that sort of simulation, there would exist some kind of currency where you could buy the ability to do miracles.

Sounds very Matrix like to me too. Even if it is a glitch, if it happened then Christians have nothing to worry about as Jesus is still sitting there at the controls save-gaming the good guys.

If he was a glitch and what he did just does not matter, then being a Christian is still a righteous life and not any more wrong then anyone else.

Still looks like a Win-Win for being a Christian from my POV.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Well now we have Pascal's Wager.  I wonder what Jupiter thinks of these Christians.  Better find a temple of Jupiter and throw some incense on it every now and then -- just to be safe.

By Jove I think you diminish the importance of it all!  ;)
All of life IS a wager so why not imagine God just being another one?  It's an endless, answerless argument that we only learn the truth of upon death.  So one idea really is as good as another if proof must be brought to bear.  Fortunately for those of faith it is the faith itself and not the evidence of our senses which is the most important thing.  It doesn't make us any better or worse than the rest - just more at peace.  I'll take the peace.

I have a feeling your argument might irritate God -- that He wants people who belief on something more fundamental than just placing bets.

There is a passage in Buddhist text where the Buddha makes a similar claim about his teaching.  Why not follow my practice, he says.  Even if there is no karma and no rebirth, doing what I say leads to a happy and productive life.

If you're going to promote your guru as a god he has to do god like things, so to do that Jesus has to do some miracles whether or not they are true.
