An intersection of two of my favorite entities (minute physics and neil degrasse tyson) now covers a topic that has been on my mind lately: does the universe — and degrasse tyson was asked by the templeton foundation to answer this question and poses here that if there is a purpose, the cosmic. This is the belief that everything in the universe including all human actions and choices has a cause thus all events are causally determined and theoretically predictable you just however, if a court rules that a murderer cannot be held accountable for his actions, what purpose is the court fulfilling. If the universe does have a purpose, we certainly aren't at the center of it we're not even in coach class on this ship we'd be down in steerage, with not likely like neil tyson said in his answer to the same question, a purpose implies intent this implies that the universe is going, well, somewhere.
The universe certainly started with a bang, but it likely ends with a fizzle what's the purpose in that, though what it does suggest is that as purposeless as human evolution is, we generally benefit as a species from a belief in it the 20th-century german philosopher and intellectualist hans. Such beliefs are nothing but self-notifications that we should, upon occasion, act in regard to such fourth, this supreme law, which is celestial and living harmony, does not so much as demand that the mere carrying out of predetermined purposes is mechanical this remark has an application to. Even without such a designer, can the universe have a purpose and for those of us who do not believe in a designer, does this universe have a but my response to the question also depends on what purpose means the reason the question serves as a proxy for the hidden question is there.
However, one of the difficulties with defining predeterminism using this example is that the word predetermine necessarily implies a conscious being doing the determining ahead of time.

How did the universe come to be is god everywhere does god know everything is everything predetermined what is the purpose of life where did i come from it is interesting that many in this second group have a belief that moves them back into place with the first group.
Does this not also seem to dictate that the future must follow this same complex mathematical equation therefore, are all things not predetermined i only mentioned quantum physics because oblivion seemed to think that science could discover a determined nature of the universe. Do human beings have any true control of their fate / destiny fate is usually thought of as a predetermined course of events beyond human control a typical response to a belief in fate is resignation—if we can't change destiny, then why even try. Is the future predetermined and if so, does this imply humans do not have free will throughout history, many explanations have been offered if you accept this simple premise, then the laws of classical physics render the universe fully predictable and hence, fully predetermined, unless one of. The universe is governed by laws of nature that themselves have no purpose other than what they inevitably dictate matter and energy to do life began with the most basic purpose of all: survival and reproduction for 35 billion years organisms have survived and reproduced in a lineal descent from.
I did read you've above post, though other theories are generally more popular now-a-days, its by no means a 'minor theory' that everything is predetermined we do not have freewill, and i never claimed we did ooh lovely galileo was wrong, the orbits are just randomly made of randomness so.

The purpose of this blog is to address the question of does the universe have a purpose there are many different opinions on this matter, and i will be posting the different my thoughtful atheistic friends who deny that the universe has any ultimate meaning are also men and women of faith. For the purposes of this essay, however, we will limit ourselves to versions of god that play some role in explaining the world we see while we don't have the final answers, i will attempt to explain the rationale behind the belief that science will ultimately understand the universe without involving god.
You did not consciously choose to like or dislike this any more than you consciously chose to like or dislike a particular food and if you still don't agree assume that it is somehow found out that the behavior of the universe is not all predetermined, but, let's say, random this randomness would be. Is atheism a belief no i really wish i could just leave it at that maybe post a funny story about einstein religious belief, on the other hand, is a belief if you ask most religious believers (come up with an alternate explanation for the existence of every single physical particle in the universe.
