He didn't deny he watched televangelists after I said he probably did, after he mentioned watching a religious person speak on television. So, naturally, I thought he did. Get over it for whatchamacallit's sake.

I didn't say anything about Sims.

I don't know that the universe is a hologram. I don't know the brain operates like a hologram. I don't know that our reality is an illusion. But I've read enough about the theories and seen enough written argument and scientific backup to form an opinion in support of it.
I was simply asking you a question. A question mark looks like this ---> ? You're acting like I was accusing of something. Lay off the soda pop dude.
You said this:

Now obviously I'm playing "devils advocate" but I'm sure you get the point.
You were talking about being placed here "a day ago" with "false memories". I asked you about the universe being put here 6,000 years ago. I didn't say anything about "false memories".
It's reasonable that I'd ask you that question since one of the main theories in hologram theory is that the universe could have been placed here at any point in time. And you also believe in the bible, which has a 6,000 year timeline. Hence, the reason I asked you the question.

I'm not necessarily "concerned" about either. Hey, if you want to keep it an ancient Chinese secret, that's cool. Nobody's twisting your arm here man. Many people are curious as to how certain people come to their beliefs. It's a natural human instinct to ask such questions. <<<newsflash>>>...you're in a religious forum...these questions are going to arise. Sorry you got your panties all bunched up over it.
