deeeeeep. now pass that fatty to the left ;)
preaching to the choir here. lol
hey its BB...
and your still a classic after all this time =D hiya mate
Your conclusion doesn't necessarily follow the premise.
I'd think the onus is on you to prove your idea. BUt anyway...
1. There might be a God that created a finite universe that defines justice. Therefore justice would exist
2. Fate may not be real because free will might exist.
Possibility 1 - The universe is finite, but existence isn't.
Possibility 2 - A finite 'God' yet still capable of delivering justice.
Don't agree with premise that justice requires victims to live the lives of their victims. There are many theories of justice that don't require this at all.
What about restorative justice, as an example. I steal ten cents from someone. To make up for it, I admit my wrong to them and give them a dollar.
No, there's nothing wrong with my conception of these ideas.
A. The universe is time and space and matter. 1. Physicists are currently talking about multiverses as a possibility, as though existsnce may go beyond this universe. 2. The judeao-christian concept of god is that he is outside of the universe (immanence/ transcendence). So there are two examples of space or existence to be infinite beyond a finite universe. B. You need to read up on restorative justice and other concepts of justice. I didn't say 'torture can be restored'. I don't have space here to explain basics to you. Your concept of justice seems to be one you have created yourself, and there is a huge body of work that you haven't grasped that differs from your definition. You're talking to someone who has studied philosophy, and you speak as someone not used to academic debate.
'Seems silly' based on your presupposition that the universe is everything. What if the universe isn't everything? If the universe is created - as per christian/muslim thought - then God has to have existed before the universe, so is separate. Re justice: Sometimes it's not possible to receive what you give in fair exchange. I kill five people, I only have one life to give back. Is justice still possible? I don't think it's straightforward in all situations. That's why people have thought about it in different ways. When is it justice, when revenge, where is the space for reform, is punishment more important than becoming a better person and giving back to society? I think there are lots of nuances to justice.
Ok, you can't follow basic logic. Conversation is a waste of time. My definition of 'universe' doesn't come from the oxford dictionary, your head or what you saw on tv when you were a child, but in the discussions of scientists. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universe#Multiverse_theory
Don't bother looking it up - you won't understand it.
The universe continues to expand and has no boundary. It is infinite.
Its a multiverse.
