If it is finite, I as a human will question if there is anything above and beyond.1. The universe as we know it is finite.
this is what I am thinking, but I hope this is not true because that would mean humans are stuck in this universe and can never fully know the "truth" of things.The universe as we know it is finite, and there are many other finite universes.
this and number 2 are pretty much the same..3. The universe as we know it is finite, but it is a part of a much greater, infinite universe.
Could you agree with this statement?4. The universe is infinite, and the laws of thermodynamics did not operate as we currently understand them for an infinite amount of time.
If the universe is infinite then humans are infinite as well. This means that humans have the capability of doing anything possible (ie constructing our own universes, designing new species). This would also mean that humans can become "God". However, this would not be explaining anything of the origins of "reality". Humans could quite possibly be a creation of some other type of humans that actually achieved a "God" status.
This is NOT an atheist vs theist debate, it is simply a bunch of humans with questions and opinions who want to feel vulnerable to the complex nature of reality. I am sorry to the theists for not bringing up their cave man concept of "God", but this is the 21st century and the human brain is much more informed then it was during the bronze age. In this day and age humans are well equipped with more information about the universe, therefore, can make better predictions. If you can not agree with this then you are ignorant, consequently showing your dishonest appreciation for the search of "God".
P.S. Here is to hoping the human species does not get killed off before such discoveries can be made.
