I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this, please move or give me links to discussions, I'm sure this is not the first time it's been asked....
Will someone please tell me how to point someone in the direction of Tom's work who is very wrapped up in the creation vs evolution debate?
Hopefully your intent is to be helpful and not controlling. If someone is not asking or curious, its better to leave them be. There are more appropriate venues for spreading the word to the "ready", if you feel this impulse.
In the gradient of Christian denominations, the fundamentalist creationist may have a bridge to cross. The Catholics believe in evolution, but that evolution arises from God, which is their word for "other". They also accept PSI, so Catholics will have very little problem with MBT, if they understand Catholicism maturely, and if they can absorb what Tom is really saying.
A Christian Spiritualist, my last stop, who practises mediumship and healing, will hardly be able to tell that they are not in a spiritualist meeting, except for different metaphors.
The key thing about creationism is that something created this, and whether the process of intentional creation by a conciousness started at the big bang or 6000 years ago, is somewhat immaterial. The core of creationism is the intuition that there is something more to arising of life than a random shaking of molecules.
So in this, Tom, somewhat counter-intuitively, is a creationist. So you can tell the creationist that they are correct.
I also do not see why the system could not have fired up the simulation 6000 years ago, perhaps based on another PMR, under Tom's model.
Just because the math of physics points to a big bang, this does not mean that there was a big bang. Its all a contrived virtual reality, after all. Or at least, thats the best model for explaining the data we can measure.
evolution side deny's any paranormal,
indeed, the materialist evolutionists deny the paranormal, and that is what they are really getting at...life is an accident from brownian motion, rather that intent arising from a much more complex reality than PMR.
the world indeed does seem somehow contrived to foster this belief that PMR is all that is. The absurdity of this is self evident upon close examination, and one paranormal event removes our capacity for this childlike understanding of our lives.
and Tom is all about paranormal,
that's an important part of his value added regarding trying to provide a framework for science once it starts to accept the data.
he is also "all about" becoming love, which is his other hat as quantum anti-religion guru.
but I've heard him mention millions of years and he uses the word evolution a lot, however the creation side is an entirely different theory with the earth created only thousands of years ago? help!
again, under the VR multi-verse paradigm, its a lot more complicated. The key thing is not how old our universe is or has been constructed to appear, but that someone created it. The starting point of the simulation is immaterial to what people mean behind their words.
We perceive an apparently physical world in a virtual reality, and this is not the wild imaginings of an eccentric retired rocket scientist, but is rather an emerging view of professional science, and the only view that fits the data.
What we have here is an apparently sane and rational dude who tells us that he has figured out how to visit other parts of this virtual multiverse...and stranger yet, he is not asking you to pay for his Bentley lease or enticing female followers to come for a weekend of fun on his yacht.
Its kinda like the first discovery of China or the New World or that the earth is not flat. Takes a while to sink in.
