I notice that within the last few days there have been a number of articles posted on Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com (i.e., Paul Joseph Watson, "Is the Universe a Computer Simulation?", Infowars.com, Feb. 6, 2013; "The Nature of Reality", Infowars.com, Feb. 7, 2013; and Mike Adams, "Yet more evidence emerges that our universe is a grand simulation created by an intelligent designer", NaturalNews.com, Feb. 7, 2013) concerning the article by Prof. Silas R. Beane (University of New Hampshire; University of Washington; Universität Bonn), Zohreh Davoudi (University of Washington) and Prof. Martin J. Savage (University of Washington) entitled "Constraints on the Universe as a Numerical Simulation" (arXiv:1210.1847, Oct. 4, 2012).
As shown from the video in the aforecited Infowars.com article "The Nature of Reality", Alex Jones has also been talking about the religious implications of said Beane et al. article on his radio show.
I highly recommend that physicist and mathematician Prof. Frank J. Tipler be invited onto the Alex Jones Show in order to discuss this Beane et al. article and how it relates to Tipler's own substantial work regarding physics' relation to religion. Tipler is by far the most erudite physicist on Earth today and has done far more in the field of natural theology than anyone else. When it comes to science and what it has to say about religion, there is no one Mr. Jones could interview who could offer more concrete knowledge on this matter than Tipler.
Tipler is Professor of Physics and Mathematics (joint appointment) at Tulane University. His Ph.D. is in the field of Global General Relativity (the same rarefied field that Profs. Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking developed), and he is also an expert in quantum field theory (i.e., Quantum Mechanics combined with special-relativistic particle physics) and computer theory. His Omega Point cosmology--which is now a proof (i.e., mathematical theorem) of God's existence per the known laws of physics (viz., the Second Law of Thermodynamics, General Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics)--has been peer-reviewed and published in a number of prestigious physics and science journals, such as Reports on Progress in Physics (the leading journal of the Institute of Physics, Britain's main professional organization for physicists), Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (one of the world's leading astrophysics journals), Physics Letters, the International Journal of Theoretical Physics (a journal Physics Nobel Laureate Prof. Richard Feynman also published in during the 1980s), etc.
Prof. John A. Wheeler (the physicist who gave black holes their name and the father of most relativity research in the US) wrote that "Frank Tipler is widely known for important concepts and theorems in general relativity and gravitation physics" on p. viii in his "Foreword" to The Anthropic Cosmological Principle (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1986) by cosmologist Prof. John D. Barrow and Tipler, which was the first book wherein Tipler's Omega Point Theory was described. On p. ix of said book, Prof. Wheeler wrote that Chapter 10 of the book, which concerns the Omega Point Theory, "rivals in thought-provoking power any of the [other chapters]."
In his aforesaid Reports on Progress in Physics paper, Prof. Tipler has also shown that we already have the Theory of Everything (TOE) correctly describing and unifying all the forces in physics in the form of the the Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum gravity/Standard Model TOE, of which the Omega Point cosmology is an inherent component.
On the right-hand side of Prof. Tipler's below biography page is listed a number of methods by which he can be contacted in order to invite him onto the Alex Jones Show. If Tipler is invited onto the show, please let him know that Mr. Jones might like to ask Tipler about the above-said Beane et al. article on his radio show so that Tipler can familiarize himself with said article in case he hasn't already done so.

Prof. Tipler has also written a number of popular articles that are pertinent to, and in support of, the liberty movement. Below is Tipler's PJ Media (previously Pajamas Media) article archive, where a number of his said articles are located:

In listening to Alex Jones's radio show where he discussed the above Beane et al. article, Jones made the point that he wants atheists to come to realize that God does exist and that God's existence is supported by science. What Prof. Tipler has mathematically demonstrated with his Omega Point cosmology is that the only way to reject God's existence is to reject empirical science: since the Second Law of Thermodynamics, General Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics--which require the Omega Point cosmology in order to avoid their mutual violation--have been confirmed by every experiment to date.
For much more information on Prof. Tipler's Omega Point cosmology, in addition to its relation the liberty movement, current political events, and the future of mankind, see my following article:

I provide the following information for further background on Prof. Tipler's Omega Point cosmology and the Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum gravity/Standard Model Theory of Everything (TOE) correctly describing and unifying all the forces in physics:
Prof. Frank J. Tipler's Omega Point cosmology has been peer-reviewed and published in a number of the world's leading physics and science journals. Even NASA itself has peer-reviewed his Omega Point Theorem and found it correct according to the known laws of physics (see below). No refutation of it exists within the peer-reviewed scientific literature, or anywhere else for that matter.

Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, in which the above August 2007 paper was published, is one of the world's leading peer-reviewed astrophysics journals.
Prof. Tipler's paper "Ultrarelativistic Rockets and the Ultimate Future of the Universe" was an invited paper for a conference held at and sponsored by NASA Lewis Research Center, so NASA itself has peer-reviewed Tipler's Omega Point Theorem (peer-review is a standard process for published proceedings papers; and again, Tipler's said paper was an *invited* paper by NASA, as opposed to what are called "poster papers").
Zygon is the world's leading peer-reviewed academic journal on science and religion.
Out of 50 articles, Prof. Tipler's 2005 Reports on Progress in Physics paper--which presents the Omega Point/Feynman-DeWitt-Weinberg quantum gravity/Standard Model Theory of Everything (TOE)--was selected as one of 12 for the "Highlights of 2005" accolade as "the very best articles published in Reports on Progress in Physics in 2005 [Vol. 68]. Articles were selected by the Editorial Board for their outstanding reviews of the field. They all received the highest praise from our international referees and a high number of downloads from the journal Website." (See Richard Palmer, Publisher, "Highlights of 2005", Reports on Progress in Physics. http://webcitation.org/5o9VkK3eE
Reports on Progress in Physics is the leading journal of the Institute of Physics, Britain's main professional body for physicists. Further, Reports on Progress in Physics has a higher impact factor (according to Journal Citation Reports) than Physical Review Letters, which is the most prestigious American physics journal (one, incidently, which Prof. Tipler has been published in more than once). A journal's impact factor reflects the importance the science community places in that journal in the sense of actually citing its papers in their own papers.
For much more on these matters, see my above-cited article "The Physics of God and the Quantum Gravity Theory of Everything" in addition to my below website:

The only way to avoid the Omega Point cosmology is to reject the known laws of physics (i.e., the Second Law of Thermodynamics, General Relativity, and Quantum Mechanics), and hence to reject empirical science: as these physical laws have been confirmed by every experiment to date. That is, there exists no rational reason for thinking that the Omega Point cosmology is incorrect, and indeed, one must engage in extreme irrationality in order to argue against the Omega Point cosmology.
Additionally, we now have the quantum gravity Theory of Everything (TOE) required by the known laws of physics and that correctly describes and unifies all the forces in physics: of which inherently produces the Omega Point cosmology. So here we have an additional high degree of assurance that the Omega Point cosmology is correct.
1. While there is a lot that gets published in physics journals that is anti-reality and non-physical (such as String Theory, which violates the known laws of physics and has no experimental support whatsoever), the reason such things are allowed to pass the peer-review process is because the paradigm of assumptions which such papers are speaking to has been made known, and within their operating paradigm none of the referees could find anything crucially wrong with said papers. That is, the paradigm itself may have nothing to do with reality, but the peer-reviewers could find nothing fundamentally wrong with such papers within the operating assumptions of that paradigm. Whereas, e.g., the operating paradigm of Prof. Tipler's 2005 Reports on Progress in Physics paper and his other papers on the Omega Point Theorem is the known laws of physics, i.e., our actual physical reality which has been repeatedly confirmed by every experiment conducted to date. So the professional physicists charged with refereeing these papers could find nothing fundamentally wrong with them within their operating paradigm, i.e., the known laws of physics.
