On Certain Structures of Reality
There are certain points of common argument I believe have been unfairly interpreted. Namely that our universe is somehow fine-tuned, and that humans are, by some means, a privileged species. Above all else that life has purpose.
First I think we should start with how we view the world through a secular technique. There is no dogma to accept in scientific observations. There are only explanations that are in reasonable accordance with the given evidence of a thing. It is with secular thought I hope to receive clarity on these topics. Although I suspect many “non-secular” ideas will attempt to explain these things as well
It seems to me, and I am no theoretical physicist, that our universe is very chaotic- on what grounds do some assume it was “finely tuned”.
I in no way think we are somehow privileged- in what way is a human more deserving of life than say a puppy?
I don’t claim our individual lives can’t be potentially meaningful; it seems however that if life had meaning- that all life would have meaning, so in asking “what’s the purpose of human life?” We would need to ask “what’s the purpose of a puppy’s life?” If we are the only one with purposeful lives, then refer to my second question.
