We May Have Come Into Existence Five Minutes Ago

We may all have come into existence five minutes ago, provided with ready-made memories, with holes in our socks and hair that needed cutting.

    He may be right – my hair needs cutting.

    The current state of understanding in modern physics suggests this possibility is many orders of magnitude more likely than the favored Big Bang theory. In fact in an eternal universe, this will happen as a result of quantum fluctuations infinite times.

    Obviously this issue needs to be rectified.

    • Saedon

      No it isn’t. If this were the case then the big bang theory would be depreciated, but evidently the experts don’t agree with you. I think you must have forgotten to preface your comment with “in my unqualified opinion [...]“

        Well reasoned and said.
        You are someone I would care to know.

          Agreed. It is every honest man’s duty to call people on their bullshit and it is nice to see it done well.

    My mind hurts just thinking about this.

  • brgulker

    I say ten minutes ago, and not a second less!

    • Daniel Florien

      Recant, heretic!

    • LRA

      Why, hello, Mr. Gulker! Good to see ya round these parts again!

      :D

    Who is this *we*? I may have come into existence 5 minutes ago and only have the impression that I inhabit a world such as this.

    I have irrefutable proof that we came into existence five minutes ago: any memory older that five minutes is fake thus we did not exist five minutes ago. :p

  • Nathan

    So I’ve only been here 5 minutes and already I’m sick of this place….

      Sorry to here that! Thanks for sharing though.

    I have had diarrhea that lasted way more than 5 minutes

    The original name for this argument is Last Tuesdayism, and it’s only useful against Young Earth idiots. It isn’t worth the effort, as Young Earth Creationists have renounced reason. As far as they are concerned, if it isn’t in the Holy Babble, it doesn’t exist. BTW, has anyone had the patience -or masochism- to slog through the KJV to check the Ussher chronology? Given the patchwork nature of the book, it’s hard to believe that there are no gaps.

    iv had similar thoughts after a bag of mushrooms o.O

    I came into existence five minutes ago and you are all figments of my imagination.

    • Sunny Day

      Your imagination couldn’t do better than me?
      Be ashamed.

  • Jørgen

    In that case I was created with a hangover.
