← A universe without purpose

AtheistEgbert's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by AtheistEgbert

In one sense, we are seeing design and purpose, because we are stuck inside our own experiencing heads, looking at a perfect representation of the collisions of events happening from our senses.

No wonder most people intuitively believe that there is order and sense to the world, because our minds create it in the first place.

The truth is, the more we learn about the universe, the more non-intuitive and unfathomable it becomes. Every point in the universe is expanding away from each other point, and therefore there is no center of the universe, and yet we aren't even aware of it, nor can we imagine it.
