Why should I believe the sun will rise tomorrow?
>Why should I believe the sun will rise tomorrow?
it is statistically very likely, based on previous data
earth is roughly 4.543 billion years old. the sun has risen on every single day. hence, 4.543 x 365. which equals 1658.195 billion days. hence, the chance that the sun does not rise tomorrow is 1/1658195000000
>So why shouldn't I believe it won't rise tomorrow?
you should consider it a possibility but also recognize that this is not a binary dilemma, as in that you should not believe in such simple terms as [sun will rise tomorrow with absolute certainty- vs - sun will not rise tomorrow with absolute certainty], because that is not the case
you can beleive what ever you fucking like
but the consistent rising and falling of the sun day after day year after year century after century atleast lends some strength to the argument that it will rise tomorrow.
Okay, /lit/, here is the scenario:
>the sun has fallen out of its orbit
>it will crashland into earth
>you are invited in one of the few save bunkers built for this ocasion
>due to limited space you only get to bring three books that you can read while you are in the bunker
Which books do you bring?
Keep in mind that you will stay in there for months.
>sun collision proof bunker
>landing on earth
