Is there any religion that says we are in a simulation?

I have a MacBook Air. Why oh why am I so far behind the curve? Can't afford a Cadillac I guess. Story of my life!

Each to their own on this, but for me I made the switch to Mac about 7 years ago, I still use PC at work because they provide it, but I still prefer Mac.

I can't stand Macs, though.  If I'm going to spend $1,800 on a computer, I want to actually get $1,800 worth of computer.  I got two upper-end graphics cards, dual hard drives, and the CPU and system RAM to handle anything that comes out for the next 5 years or so.

Hell, Mac barely even sells desktop computers.  I just took a look at their website and checked out the specs of their Mac Pros.  My desktop would blow away their $4000 desktop.

8-core processors have been standard for quite a while now, and we have 14- and 16-core processors if you really want to go that high.  Yet, Mac is busy trying to talk up 6-core processors, on their most expensive model.  Give me a dual-booted Win7/Linux machine that I can assemble myself, any day.

Plus, most games don't work on Mac, anyway.

No, Chris, I don't Trust in God.  That's why I got rid of the dollars.  :-D

Now I have NIN's Head like a hole spinning around inside my cranium.

Comment by Christopher Lowe on February 15, 2015 at 11:12pm

$1,800? You see, in God you really do trust!

Comment by Quinton Llewellyn on February 15, 2015 at 10:23pm

Mac owner here, I feel your pain.

Comment by Joseph P on February 15, 2015 at 9:54pm

Yes, it took the power of a god to get the $1,800 together for my gaming computer ...

Well if a simulation is programmed, it's programmed by a programmer. Of course it doesn't lead to a god that created everything because at the top of all the simulated worlds would be the real world and that of course wouldn't have a programmer as it wouldn't be a program. But for those in the simulated worlds, those that are running the simulation of their world, would have created and have complete power over it, which is godlike right.
