Universe is a giant hologram, evidence indicates

So... does the world really exist? Do you exist? Do I exist for that matter? Believe it or not, according to bleeding-edge quantum physics our reality may be a massive illusion. Physicists have discovered that the entire cosmos is structured like a hologram at its most basic level.

Then again, to those who are students of the Bible, this probably comes as no surprise anyway...

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

-- Genesis 1:3

Einstein established a long time ago that matter was frozen energy (i.e. light). So I could see how that would perfectly jibe with the "universe as hologram" theory.

That makes me thing of an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation I watched a few days ago. At the end of the episode, Ship in a Bottle. At the end, there's an exchange of dialogue that goes:

As far as Moriarty and the Countess know, they're halfway to Meles II by now. This enhancement module contains enough active memory to provide them with experiences for a lifetime."
"They will live their lives and never know any difference."
"In a sense, you did give Moriarty what he wanted."
"In a sense, who knows? Our reality may be very much like theirs. All this might just be an elaborate simulation running inside a little device sitting on someone's table."

The world ends when Jesus says. "Computer end program Jesus/Reality 1"

I wonder how Jesus would code that in C or C++ :-)
