Maybe the sky is silent because it is the edge of the universe...
Does the Simulationist Argument explain The Great Silence?

(There were some really good essays in my blogroll a few days back about the Great Silence, but now I cant remember which feed I read them in, to link back to. So instead I'm linking to Wikipedia.).

It seems to me that the argument is doing some huge leaps in its logic chain. Especially when some of the "its reasonable to believe" statmeents they have there are more than debatable.

And using "we're in a simulation" as an explanation for the Fermi Paradox, goes a bit beyond multiplying entities unnecessarily. Until they come up with some actual evidence, I'll file this with that theory about the four elephants standing on a turtle.

I've long had the opinion that we are living in a Sim or a rpg. God is up there rolling dice and deciding what to do next.
