    No it isn't (yes, it concerns itself with theories blah blah blah but they tend to be much different from the connotations attached to the words theory and theoretical).

    That doesn't concern science.

    How does it not?



    Also, I was able to reference 4 Movies and TV shows in one paragraph. That is an achievement in itself.

    Science means knowledge. If we go from the assumption we know nothing, there is no science.

    I'm not saying we know nothing. It's that all we know could be false.

    So under almost all versions of truth, you're saying at least that we MIGHT know nothing.

    lol

    umm heat death obviously will never happen while humans exist ( points and laughs )
    so we can only go on the ASSUMPTION that it is true, since there is no better theory out there that overrules this one.

    Then why did you say it was proven?
    That you've heard of.

    You fail to realise you saying that means that under most definitions of knowing, you don't know anything, since you're not justified in your belief?

    Science concerns itself with what we can observe. No one cares if it's all an illusion, because saying "it's all an illusion so let's do nothing" is impractical. Making observations and acting on them, however, is quite practical, and has got us from nomadic tribes to a massive technological civilization.

    lol

    I'm not saying we should do nothing, just merely be prepared to have everything be proved wrong.

    If reality is an illusion...then by all irony there is no illusion, but instead reality. The illusion being our reality, and thus no an illusion, since it would lose the effect of being a 'rouse'.

    Yeah, I kinda liked this conversation when it had a decent amount of intelligence to it.

    How about I move it to Medhiv's Tower?

    Reality can't be an illusion. What you perceive as reality, however, can. This would be to any degree, however.
    That's no sentence. That's a group of subordinate clauses.
