Simulation Hypothesis

The Simulation Hypothesis: A Materialist Spirituality?

It’s telling how often advocates of the simulation hypothesis, the idea that we are all living in a simulation, utilize religious and spiritual language. Having reduced themselves to computer programs, they still speak of transcendence, resurrection, morality, and eternal life. Sometimes they talk of our supposed programmers in a way that sounds an awful lot like worship. In the end, maybe the best evidence against this bizarre and complicated version of materialism is that those who use it cannot resist simulating spiritual reality, even while attempting to explain it away.
