Why does the universe exist? | Jim Holt


Why does the universe exist? Why is there — Okay. Okay. (Laughter) This is a cosmic mystery. Be solemn. Why is there a world, why are we in it, and why is there something rather than nothing at all? I mean, this is the super ultimate “why” question? So I’m going to talk about the mystery of existence, the puzzle of existence, where we are now in addressing it, and why you should care, and I hope you do care. The philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said that those who don’t wonder about
the contingency of their existence, of the contingency of the world’s existence, are mentally deficient. That’s a little harsh, but still. (Laughter) So this has been called the most sublime and awesome mystery, the deepest and most far-reaching question man can pose. It’s obsessed great thinkers. Ludwig Wittgenstein, perhaps the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, was astonished that there should be a world at all. He wrote in his “Tractatus,” Proposition 4.66, “It is not how things are in the world that is the mystical, it’s that the world exists.” And if you don’t like taking your epigrams from a philosopher, try a scientist. John Archibald Wheeler, one of the great physicists of the 20th century, the teacher of Richard Feynman, the coiner of the term “black hole,” he said, “I want to know how come the quantum, how come the universe, how come existence?” And my friend Martin Amis — sorry that I’ll be doing a lot of
name-dropping in this talk, so get used to it — my dear friend Martin Amis once said that we’re about five Einsteins away from answering the mystery of where the universe came from. And I’ve no doubt there are five Einsteins in the audience tonight. Any Einsteins? Show of hands? No? No? No? No Einsteins? Okay. So this question, why is there
something rather than nothing, this sublime question, was posed rather late in intellectual history. It was towards the end of the 17th century, the philosopher Leibniz who asked it, a very smart guy, Leibniz, who invented the calculus independently of Isaac Newton,
at about the same time, but for Leibniz, who asked why is
there something rather than nothing, this was not a great mystery. He either was or pretended to be an Orthodox Christian in his metaphysical outlook, and he said it’s obvious why the world exists: because God created it. And God created, indeed, out of nothing at all. That’s how powerful God is. He doesn’t need any preexisting
materials to fashion a world out of. He can make it out of sheer nothingness, creation ex nihilo. And by the way, this is what most Americans today believe. There is no mystery of existence for them. God made it. So let’s put this in an equation. I don’t have any slides so
I’m going to mime my visuals, so use your imaginations. So it’s God + nothing=the world. Okay? Now that’s the equation. And so maybe you don’t believe in God. Maybe you’re a scientific atheist or an unscientific atheist,
and you don’t believe in God, and you’re not happy with it. By the way, even if we have this equation, God + nothing=the world, there’s already a problem: Why does God exist? God doesn’t exist by logic alone unless you believe the ontological argument, and I hope you don’t, because
it’s not a good argument. So it’s conceivable, if God were to exist, he might wonder, I’m eternal, I’m all-powerful, but where did I come from? (Laughter) Whence then am I? God speaks in a more formal English. (Laughter) And so one theory is that God was so bored with pondering the puzzle of His own existence that He created the world just to distract himself. But anyway, let’s forget about God. Take God out of the equation: We have ________ + nothing=the world. Now, if you’re a Buddhist, you might want to stop right there, because essentially what you’ve got is nothing=the world, and by symmetry of identity, that means the world=nothing. Okay? And to a Buddhist, the world
is just a whole lot of nothing. It’s just a big cosmic vacuity. And we think there’s a lot of something out there but that’s because we’re enslaved by our desires. If we let our desires melt away, we’ll see the world for what it truly is, a vacuity, nothingness, and we’ll slip into this happy state of nirvana which has been defined as having just enough life to enjoy being dead. (Laughter) So that’s the Buddhist thinking. But I’m a Westerner, and I’m still concerned with the puzzle of existence, so I’ve got ________ + — this is going to get serious in a minute, so — ________ + nothing=the world. What are we going to put in that blank? Well, how about science? Science is our best guide to the nature of reality, and the most fundamental science is physics. That tells us what naked reality really is, that reveals what I call TAUFOTU, the True And Ultimate Furniture Of The Universe. So maybe physics can fill this blank, and indeed, since about the late 1960s or around 1970, physicists have purported to give a purely scientific explanation of how a universe like ours could have popped into existence out of sheer nothingness, a quantum fluctuation out of the void. Stephen Hawking is one of these physicists, more recently Alex Vilenkin, and the whole thing has been popularized by another very fine physicist and friend of mine, Lawrence Krauss, who wrote a book called “A Universe from Nothing,” and Lawrence thinks that he’s given — he’s a militant atheist, by the way, so he’s gotten God out of the picture. The laws of quantum field theory, the state-of-the-art physics, can show how out of sheer nothingness, no space, no time, no matter, nothing, a little nugget of false vacuum can fluctuate into existence, and then, by the miracle of inflation, blow up into this huge and variegated cosmos we see around us. Okay, this is a really ingenious scenario. It’s very speculative. It’s fascinating. But I’ve got a big problem with it, and the problem is this: It’s a pseudo-religious point of view. Now, Lawrence thinks he’s an atheist, but he’s still in thrall to a religious worldview. He sees physical laws as being like divine commands. The laws of quantum field theory for him are like fiat lux, “Let there be light.” The laws have some sort of ontological power or clout that they can form the abyss, that it’s pregnant with being. They can call a world into existence out of nothing. But that’s a very primitive view of what a physical law is, right? We know that physical laws are actually generalized descriptions of patterns and regularities in the world. They don’t exist outside the world. They don’t have any ontic cloud of their own. They can’t call a world into existence out of nothingness. That’s a very primitive view of what a scientific law is. And if you don’t believe me on this, listen to Stephen Hawking, who himself put forward a model of the cosmos that was self-contained, didn’t require any outside cause, any creator, and after proposing this, Hawking admitted that he was still puzzled. He said, this model is just equations. What breathes fire into the equations and creates a world for them to describe? He was puzzled by this, so equations themselves can’t do the magic, can’t resolve the puzzle of existence. And besides, even if the laws could do that, why this set of laws? Why quantum field theory that describes a universe with a certain number of forces and particles and so forth? Why not a completely different set of laws? There are many, many mathematically
consistent sets of laws. Why not no laws at all? Why not sheer nothingness? So this is a problem, believe it or not, that reflective physicists really think a lot about, and at this point they tend to go metaphysical, say, well, maybe the set of laws that describes our universe, it’s just one set of laws and it describes one part of reality, but maybe every consistent set of laws describes another part of reality, and in fact all possible physical worlds really exist, they’re all out there. We just see a little tiny part of reality that’s described by the laws of quantum field theory, but there are many, many other worlds, parts of reality that are described by vastly different theories that are different from ours in ways we can’t imagine, that are inconceivably exotic. Steven Weinberg, the father of the standard model of particle physics, has actually flirted with this idea himself, that all possible realities actually exist. Also, a younger physicist, Max Tegmark, who believes that all mathematical structures exist, and mathematical existence is the same thing as physical existence, so we have this vastly rich multiverse that encompasses every logical possibility. Now, in taking this metaphysical way out, these physicists and also philosophers are actually reaching back to a very old idea that goes back to Plato. It’s the principle of plenitude or fecundity, or the great chain of being, that reality is actually as full as possible. It’s as far removed from nothingness as it could possibly be. So we have these two extremes now. We have sheer nothingness on one side, and we have this vision of a reality that encompasses every conceivable world at the other extreme: the fullest possible reality, nothingness, the simplest possible reality. Now what’s in between these two extremes? There are all kinds of intermediate realities that include some things and leave out others. So one of these intermediate realities is, say, the most mathematically elegant reality, that leaves out the inelegant bits, the ugly asymmetries and so forth. Now, there are some physicists who will tell you that we’re actually living in the most elegant reality. I think that Brian Greene is in the audience, and he has written a book
called “The Elegant Universe.” He claims that the universe we live in mathematically is very elegant. Don’t believe him. (Laughter) It’s a pious hope, I wish it were true, but I think the other day he admitted to me it’s really an ugly universe. It’s stupidly constructed, it’s got way too many arbitrary coupling constants and mass ratios and superfluous families of elementary particles, and what the hell is dark energy? It’s a stick and bubble gum contraption. It’s not an elegant universe. (Laughter) And then there’s the best of all possible worlds in an ethical sense. You should get solemn now, because a world in which sentient beings don’t suffer needlessly, in which there aren’t things like childhood cancer or the Holocaust. This is an ethical conception. Anyway, so between nothingness and the fullest possible reality, various special realities. Nothingness is special. It’s the simplest. Then there’s the most elegant possible reality. That’s special. The fullest possible reality, that’s special. But what are we leaving out here? There’s also just the crummy, generic realities that aren’t special in any way, that are sort of random. They’re infinitely removed from nothingness, but they fall infinitely short of complete fullness. They’re a mixture of chaos and order, of mathematical elegance and ugliness. So I would describe these realities as an infinite, mediocre, incomplete mess, a generic reality, a kind of cosmic junk shot. And these realities, is there a deity in any of these realities? Maybe, but the deity isn’t perfect like the Judeo-Christian deity. The deity isn’t all-good and all-powerful. It might be instead 100 percent malevolent but only 80 percent effective, which pretty much describes the world
we see around us, I think. (Laughter) So I would like to propose that the resolution to the mystery of existence is that the reality we exist in is one of these generic realities. Reality has to turn out some way. It can either turn out to be nothing or everything or something in between. So if it has some special feature, like being really elegant or really full or really simple, like nothingness, that would require an explanation. But if it’s just one of these random, generic realities, there’s no further explanation for it. And indeed, I would say that’s the reality we live in. That’s what science is telling us. At the beginning of the week, we got the exciting information that the theory of inflation, which predicts a big, infinite, messy, arbitrary, pointless reality, it’s like a big frothing champagne coming out of a bottle endlessly, a vast universe, mostly a wasteland with little pockets of charm and order and peace, this has been confirmed, this inflationary scenario, by the observations made by radio telescopes in Antarctica that looked at the signature of the gravitational waves from just before the Big Bang. I’m sure you all know about this. So anyway, I think there’s some evidence that this really is the reality that we’re stuck with. Now, why should you care? Well — (Laughter) — the question, “Why does the world exist?” that’s the cosmic question, it sort of rhymes with a more intimate question: Why do I exist? Why do you exist? you know, our existence would
seem to be amazingly improbable, because there’s an enormous number
of genetically possible humans, if you can compute it by looking at the number of the genes and the
number of alleles and so forth, and a back-of-the-envelope calculation will tell you there are about 10 to the 10,000th possible humans, genetically. That’s between a googol and a googolplex. And the number of the actual
humans that have existed is 100 billion, maybe 50 billion, an infinitesimal fraction, so all of us, we’ve won this amazing cosmic lottery. We’re here. Okay. So what kind of reality do we want to live in? Do we want to live in a special reality? What if we were living in the
most elegant possible reality? Imagine the existential pressure on us to live up to that, to be elegant, not to pull down the tone of it. Or, what if we were living
in the fullest possible reality? Well then our existence would be guaranteed, because every possible thing exists in that reality, but our choices would be meaningless. If I really struggle morally and agonize and I decide to do the right thing, what difference does it make, because there are an infinite number of versions of me also doing the right thing and an infinite number doing the wrong thing. So my choices are meaningless. So we don’t want to live in that special reality. And as for the special reality of nothingness, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. So I think living in a generic reality that’s mediocre, there are nasty bits and nice bits and we could make the nice bits bigger and the nasty bits smaller and that gives us a kind of purpose in life. The universe is absurd, but we can still construct a purpose, and that’s a pretty good one, and the overall mediocrity of reality kind of resonates nicely with the mediocrity we all feel in the core of our being. And I know you feel it. I know you’re all special, but you’re still kind of secretly mediocre, don’t you think? (Laughter) (Applause) So anyway, you may say, this
puzzle, the mystery of existence, it’s just silly mystery-mongering. You’re not astonished at the existence of the universe and you’re in good company. Bertrand Russell said, “I should say the universe is just there, and that’s all.” Just a brute fact. And my professor at Columbia, Sidney Morgenbesser, a great philosophical wag, when I said to him, “Professor Morgenbesser, why is there something rather than nothing?” And he said, “Oh, even if there was nothing, you still wouldn’t be satisfied.” So — (Laughter) — okay. So you’re not astonished. I don’t care. But I will tell you something to conclude that I guarantee you will astonish you, because it’s astonished all of the brilliant, wonderful people I’ve met at this TED conference, when I’ve told them, and it’s this: Never in my life have I had a cell phone. Thank you. (Laughter) (Applause)

  1. Where does the dust come from? Where did the stuff that created the big bang or god come from? There had to be a beginning and whatever that thing or stuff is that was at the very beginning…. did it create us?

  2. the reality of all, specially existence ,is that reality is just the fact of nothingness and something that means that it just exist from nothing to something and then nothing at all, ??!, get it?!

  3. Bible says GOD created all the stars and heavenly bodies for OUR WONDERMENT. BIBLE also says GOD knows the number of grains of sand on earth and the stars are of equal number.

  4. you are an idiot sir, you spoke and spoke and still have no freakin answer, youre just a confused human being, Science doesnt and can't answer everything, just admit that you don't know any answers period…

  5. He said that a natural world exists, and that's true. Then he said that living things have built their civilizations upon the natural world, which is true. Then he said that because of their ability to cooperate, humans seem to have the most complex and expansive civilization, and I agree that it's quite complex and expansive. Then he said that our own civilization will render us useless as artificial intelligence takes over. While it is true that machines will take over more and more of the jobs that people currently do, it is not like all people will sit back and stop thinking. As has happened before, new ideas and inventions will arise. There was a time in the early 90's when some folks thought that biology was basically at its end. But look how huge cell and molecular biology have grown since then. There's been an explosion….and still growing. What I concede or surmise is that as artificial intelligence grows, society will place an increasingly higher premium on versatility in education/cognition and skills.

  6. That's the kind of question my son used to ask me. Good to know I'm not alone and in good company trying to come up with a good answer.

  7. God is the reason why the universe exists he created everything even science he created particles and atoms and cells all that it is not science alone

  8. Appreciate if the guy ends his speech with this words: As a conclusion, why does the universe exist? We don't know. But if we'll find out why, we'll make another conference and tell you.

  9. Have you ever wondered why the Universe goes out in All directions from Earth…. No one has ever said we are at the edge of the universe !! Earth is at the center of the Universe… GOD made it and said he stretched out the Heavens (universe) from Earth…. First off GOD made it all. If the universe was always here, it would be Trillions X Trillions years old X 100, Trillions too. Not just Billions years old.

  10. I believe in the concept that there are an infinite number of realities. That the process hasn't stopped, will never stop, and that we simply exist in one with a set laws and rules that define how ours functions. Our hope of understanding the process, or the beginning of the process, or to simply understand how some of these other realities function is as impossible for us to comprehend as a species as it would be for the smallest of insects to maintain and fly a commercial jet plane.

    I don't think our reality, let alone our universe, is likely to be particularly special. Although it is infinitely more special than those with no flow of time, or those with no matter, or those with laws that make the existence of life an impossibility. The only consistent and governing rule is that nothing happens just once.

    The proof that there are other realities is that we exist in one. The proof that are many universes within the multitude of realities is that ours exists. And the proof that there are an infinite number of intelligent species throughout all the universes in all the realities is us.

    Existence came from nothing. An infinite number of intelligent life across an infinite number of universes within an infinite number of realities forever will try to unravel a mystery that can never be resolved. Taking the clock analogy which is often used to illustrate how humanity has only existed for small fraction of the total time on a clock, with the birth of our solar system, or galaxy, or is it the universe, it doesn't matter, being at 12 o'clock. Perhaps the reality, the set of rules that govern our universe has existed for less than a fraction of a second, and the clock hasn't even been running for a whole second. Perhaps that clock isn't even circular but a spiral with no end. What is a trillion years to us is a second in another reality. Equally what is a second to us is a trillion years to others.

    Perhaps the pinnacle of human intelligence, maybe further, the ultimate limit of intelligence within the reality our universe resides is being able to climb the seat in that airplane and look through some of the windows. The cockpit isn't even a dream, it's so far beyond reach it's unimaginable, beyond comprehension. Maybe several billion lucky intelligent entities throughout eternity will be proud to have discovered the food tray at the back of each seat, while humanity's ultimate understanding was seeing a pattern on the fabric of the seat.

  11. The fact he makes fun of a superior being like God but not of the laughable BIG BANG religion like story shows he is biased towards atheism.

  12. He is a frustrated typical atheist trying to convince his own self that Nothing created something and that nothing was not nothing actually rather something and that something is always there but that something can be there but God cannot be ?
    Something there has not mind of his own , and is there from time immorial and that something sounds like God or a metaphysical thing but cannot be called metaphysical ?

  13. he bases his useless theories on and throws the concepts of nothingness and infinity like he even remotely understands them or can comprehend them even if he did….. news flash – noone does…..

  14. Hmmm a Buddhist would be more then happy to accept a truth for why the universe was created. Buddhism is simply an accepting that life = suffering and gives is us ways of coping and dealing with that and teaching how to be a better human being. It’s more about having the happiest life you can in the world we live in. So that whole nothing = nothing thing was a bit weird

  15. This talk:
    A poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

  16. The illuminating stars we see at night were, just as was the whole universe, in that ‘smoke’ material. God has said in the Quran:

    Have not those who disbelieved known that the heavens and the earth were one connected entity, then We separated them?… (Quran, 21:30)

    Then He turned to the heaven when it was smoke… (Quran, 41:11)

    “And the heaven We created with might, and indeed We are (its) expander.” (Quran 51:47)

    www.Quran.com read this miraculous book by yourself

  17. The answer is in Christ!
    He is the Love God wanted to give us. We all want to find happiness, and love is the essence of life. Without love someone could not want to live any longer, love gives reason and purpose to existence. Saint Gabriel of Georgia said we must feed with/from Love. God created the universe and the human being to share His abundant love to someone, like parents want to share their love to their children. Children are made of love. We are the children of God!
    Love is the reason we exist, the purpose, the drive and our life. God is that love!
    People that knew God reached that truth: that God is love! All we have to do is to find that truth! God exists for Love. In Holy Trinity there is love! Love is the reason of all things!

  18. The worst ted talk. Such a wrong explaination about Buddhism. Please do more research about it and present correct information about Buddhism.

  19. Edit: There is no "why"… that is why intelligent people LAUGH at the question. This is the "bait" type question for "Gotcha" moments on Christian Apologist and Troll-theist YouTube Channels.

    OP:
    Our options are:
    The Universe Exists, Gods are IMAGINARY.

    Or…

    God Exists, and the Universe is IMAGINARY.

    Which is the more reasonable position?

    Religion is the epitome of Arrogance, Ignorance, and Human Tribalism.

    Faith is: the ability to DELUDE oneself into BELIEVING just about Anything; beliefs held WITHOUT [or in spite of] Evidence; a piss-poor substitute for thinking; wishful thinking. See also: Gullibility.

  20. Well, that 17 minutes of my life I'll never get back! So here is something from youtube to sum up all that he thought he was saying. This is a very good explanation as to why the universe and earth exist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmIc42oRjm8

  21. B/S story dude. You trying to explain GOD on your level of understanding. None of your equations can explain anything only theory which means nothing.

  22. What this guy is explaining for those who are expecting a meme in the background and him too be wearing a fornight suit is reality is a zero sum game delicately & is what you make it literally. Goes back too plato and aristolpol which were philopshers before the alleged death of christ. Roughly if i remeber 357 bc & 370 bc? Humans have been pondering this question for Millenia.

  23. the anthropic principle, the many worlds theory, multiverse or intelligent design, or an intelligent universe.those are the four causes. i will rule out the multiverse as there is no proof of it. however the many worlds theory of quantum mechanics, with the creation of probably parallel universe has been experimentally proven.when decoherence occurs. and solves the paradoxes of retrocausality in quantum mechanics. so that is one possible reason. The anthropic principle-or the anthropic cosmological principle/wheeler's anthropic participatory principle is based on the copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics first established by Bohr and his colleagues, where reality requires an intelligent observer to be reality and there is a sense in which the moon does not exist if it is not being observed or measured however one problem with that, is that we start with a block universe, and the base of it is information, even before energy and matter. that is inferred from einstein's theories and remains the most probably model of the universe at a fundamental level, with the space fabric made of some kind of quantum foam. it is like a frozen block with the past and the future and the presents all existing in the block as information. and only when we interactive with it do events start to flow, as forces play out on matter. so its first of all like the static frames on a film in a camera, then with interaction it is like a film playing. however a problem- where did that information come from that is contained in the base level of the block universe. . a cyclic universe is a poor explanation, and a bit of a cop out in order to avoid the difficult question. it would be solved by an intelligent universe or a deity like figure with intelligence. einstein seemed to believe in spinozas god-that of an ordered universe itself being a kind of intelligence/divinity, rather than a personal god. its easy to see why jews who escaped the holocaust to britain and america would reject a personal god with the best of human like traits of mercy, compassion and empathy. so we are maybe dealing with a tyrant like god, who though maybe all powerful and perfectly pure, does not have the empathy humans have, and is rather cold and unrelatable, and only perfect from the deity's perspective- that is just a loose hypothesis and so far untestable.im just focusing on a judeo-christian god here, as we are talking about the western world's moral foundations.or an intelligent universe-spinozas god-this is a rather mystical idea, like something from the kabbalists, interesting but testable so far the many worlds doesnt solve it, because it actually makes it worse, as we are now dealing with probably infinite parallel universes with intelligent observers. all i can say is that quantum mechanics is the best theory that exists to describe reality, it even seems to have been the driving force of evolution of biological life on earth at the base level. i think the answer is in quantum mechanics somewhere.

  24. There is only one universe, hence, uni, he spoke into existence! One verse was all the mighty creator needed for all!… But, has many dimensions of that"uni-verse"!. Think of it like many pictures, like a negative superimposed/layered,over each other, many make a whole! U think it's a coincidence that holograms are just like that!…. People experience time slips, portals, and even though they stay in that exact spot, the scenery around them is another dimension, rememba, many make a whole!!… "Atoms are the pixels of life"… ???, ??☯️♾️⚛️..

  25. So interesting: Humans can understand why the universe exist, but God cannot.
    People cannot understand God's thought and God's existence. That is why the equation is wrong and the assumption about God's existence and God's understanding about himself are wrong.
    “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So my ways are higher than your ways And my thoughts than your thoughts." Isa 55. 9
    "Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God." Heb 3.4
    Studying science is great. I just do not know why people invent theories (theories are not facts) to lie about the universe.
    In the beginning, and always, there was God. If this is hard to understand for us humans,this is not hard for God to understand. And because we have much less intelligence than he has we will probably never understand this.
    "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart; yet mankind will never find out the work that the true God has made from start to finish." Eccl 3.11

  26. I think it is human nature to wonder why, even though there's no possible way for us to ever know or understand. There's no way to travel back to the "beginning" to see the big bang, to travel to the top or bottom of any "strings," or find evidence of a "God" that is responsible for everything. If there was, what existed before that? And before that? Its all speculation. It can never be proven.

    I didn't come here for answers, nor do I expect to find any anytime soon. We're all here for a short amount of time in relation to the age of everything (on Earth and beyond) to try and figure out where it all came from. Nobody knows, and no one ever will. I just find it interesting and entertaining to see other peoples' perspectives and points of view on the matter. Theories are theories until they can be proven, and so far, there's no Law of the universe, just like there is no Law of God. It might ruffle some feathers, but nothing can be proven for either. We can only 'believe' in an idea or theory, but we can't 'believe' an idea or theory into existence, unless it can be proven, science or otherwise. There's no way we can ever know for sure.

  27. intelligently funny …….well tried but mystery remains about WHY? Nothing ! is something beyond a fools' understanding.

  28. How can something come out of nothing? That does not make sense. If by nothing you may mean a form of something, then why does that version of something exist? Anyhow: What was the first thing that existed? Where did that come from? Eternal matter? Eternal Energy? How come that exist? What is the origin of being, of existence itself? … I think philosophically speaking, we must admit, that an Eternal Creator or Source of Being, is at least possible.

  30. The only thing you'll get from the video is that this guy never had a cell phone. And I'm pretty sure that I don't know what he means by that.

  31. The purpose of to live in this world is to worship God whether you like it or you do not like it that's why we are give freedom of choice to worship God or not. If you are worship God you will be saved you In the day of judgment day this simple as that. you lose everything if you do not worship God Allah

  32. That's why did 3 major religion they believed that as a judgemonday and hill fire and paradise not allusion of this world That is a reality. When you ask people whether they believe in God or there artist when you tell him do you wanna go to hellfire or neither paradise their will so we want to go to paradise no matter what

  33. Everything comes down to a creator. The explanation of science is that it’s just there. Lmao! Quran clearly says 1300s years ago that we are not just created for no reason and it questions the non believers that “do they they we’re created from nothing” and the Quran makes this point clear.

  34. It is simple why the house is exist becouse human made it,so if u wanna make a house u need the land,why the world is exist becouse god made it so god meda the world and where is he wanna put it,again he(god) create the universe to put the world,simple right

  35. Don't even try. Talk to a "mystic", enlightened human beings about these type of things. It is far beyond the comprehension and even the slightest grasp of the human intellect.

  36. Sir Steven hawkin didn't belive in god but his theory say There must be a creator. How stupid must that be?‍♂️

  37. Thee speakern makes the atheist asumption that God did not create a perfect condition for man. Rather all has it's place and reason in the long run to produce the best results. We learn from being in the dark and using our free will in the dark. We do the same from encountering ugliness, the breaking of good and right laws. We even learn of the results from the pride and blindness in men due to the worship of science as the only way to truths far beyond our feeble imagination. God's understanding and wisdom about perfection far exceed our own. Your life experience is working for you over a very long existence mortal and otherwise that the atheist does not in their blindness factor in.

  38. In summary he said: the things are the way they are and there is no reason or purpose for them to exist. the only thing we can do is to describe them.

  39. @14:00 de quoi il parle? en 2014, on ne savait pas détecter les ondes gravitationnelles… la théorie de l'inflation n'a jamais été confirmée par l'observation ou alors j'ai loupé un truc …

  40. ce sont des réflexions intéressantes mais ça n'apporte aucune réponse, au contraire, il nous démontre qu'on ne sait pas et qu'on ne saura jamais … du moins pas avant un gigantesque progrès technologique
    il ne fait qu'avancer son opinion, que tout univers existe et donc il n'y a pas d'explication à chercher sur l'existence de notre univers … or, en venant ici, nous nous attendions à discuter du pourquoi la réalité, les choses et surtout la conscience existent…

  41. When science becomes nonsense, we waste our time looking for other than the obvious truth that God who created the universe and sent his messengers to the mankind to show them the way to him. Science alone cannot answer all questions without working out your brain.

  42. what a jerk, quite fond of himself … i cant believe he trashed that guy, like HE'S GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT! First he talked about the possibilities and then which one we wanted to CHOOSE???

  43. He never had a cellphone. Maybe he meant that there is one truth that he knows and is quite sure of. So put your multiverse theory in the trashcan.

  44. A long speech about nothing. The guy is in trouble: he has not realized yet that Physics comes from Science by its turn, it comes from the Nature, by its turn, it comes from God. Not the contrary: if there were no Nature then there would not be Science and there would not be Physics.

  45. Well he sure made it clear he has no idea of the question aside of he doesn't believe in a designer. Well maybe not having an open mind stops him from being a scientist, can claim science with a closed mind, who is he to question what or who created this Universe with a closed mind to spirituality, can't say its not God but not know the answer either, maybe his closed mind to anything spiritual behind the big bang has stopped him from seeing the true light of life! ?

  46. Be better for life to not exist and the universe become a barren waste land. The suffering that conscious creatures go through can't be made up for.
