The simulation theory is something that's gotten a lot of interest lately. This is used as an argument against atheism, because the simulation theory is just a matter of faith, ergo just another religion.

Why not do it?

How many churches are there that are in favor of free and open-source software? How many synagogues in favor of privacy and encryption? How many mosques in favor of building small, organic, virtual communities, rather than artificial ones on the servers, and existing at the mercy, of vast conglomerates?

There seems to be a need for an actual religion that promotes Internet freedom.

Why not this?

I think that exists already, it's called GNU and we worship Stallman.

Simulation theory has no relation with morality or internet freedom.
>> No. 2411 [Edit]
Unless we make it so.

But we could make anything else so. Where's our waifu religion?
>> No. 2419 [Edit]
This follows naturally from the simulation theory. If we're a simulation, it stands to reason we're not the only one.

If you make a religion that gives me a religious exemption on having to use proprietary software, I'm all for it.
Though, it should also include that technology belongs in the hand of people that devote their life to it, and not some "end user". A Machine Priesthood, if you will. Gets rid of a lot of problems, like people moaning about CLI software.

Most innovation is driven by developers wanting to cater to end users. The entire purpose of computers(and technology in general) is to make people's lives easier. /g/tards only care about intellectual masturbation and elitism, so they miss the point. They're actually segregationist heretics.

Well, it's correct.

If a one-planet species like us with all our problems can make a whole new universe...what makes you think we're not made by someone else?
