The trick is finding where the old save files are.

Via Hot Air Headlines… well, I suppose that this is ONE way to get around the entire “atheistic materialism” meme found in modern scientific society:

Some physicists and university researchers say it’s possible to test the theory that our entire universe exists inside a computer simulation, like in the 1999 film “The Matrix.”

In 2003, University of Oxford philosophy professor Nick Bostrom published a paper, “The Simulation Argument,” which argued that, “we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation.” Now, a team at Cornell University says it has come up with a viable method for testing whether we’re all just a series of numbers in some ancient civilization’s computer game.

You can even justify an afterlife out of this one, too! Bonus.

PS: Yes, I’m being facetious.  But I could have been even more facetious, and suggested that our universe was actually created 1.923696 x 1011 “clock” seconds ago.  I mean, how could we tell?
