how do you prove a negative?



Divide by infinity and subtract 1

Answer part 2: The only way to prove that the universe isn't infinite, is to prove it is finite.

As stated in my other response, if the universe is finite "we" are not capable of that proof... yet... if ever.

If the universe is infinite, "we" probably won't ever be able to "prove" it.

We might run out of reasonable options ("proofs" ) that the universe is finite, which would suggest the infinite... somewhat (though not precisely) like calculating Pi.

How do you solve a problem like Maria?

How do you hold a moonbeam innnn yourrrr hannnnnnnd?!

Thank you thank you. Gnight everybody!!

But seriously, if that's a math question there might be an answer. If that's a logic question I know that the answer is "you cannot."

The only belief dumber than a creationist view of the origin of the universe is the Naturalistic view, tbh.



So Moses records in the book of Genesis that about six thousand years ago, God created the earth in six days. From that we know that the universe is not eternal/infinite/endless.

I don't have a video of that, but the guy that played Moses in the movies has some pretty amazing youtube videos. See him here taking Al Gore to task:

Oh my flippin do-dah buddy is pro guns too!! HOW GREAT IS THAT?!!!

Ahh.

If you actually watch the video I posted, you'll see that's not a church. It's an NRA get-together.

5. How high up.... how many layers above "us" does the game go?


Oh... and let's not forget free will... do we at the lowest rung of the game then actually have free will?


Like fractals, if one accepts a supernatural entity, it is a never ending line as no god could know if there is another above him/her or it.
