The juxtaposition of science and religion, as practiced in the Soviet era is gone. Now is not a wonder of the publication in which religious and scientific truths coexist quite peacefully as those who wear a cassock, or in cassock, and those who cherishes the diploma and Ph.D. candidate at a major in philosophy of Marxism-Leninism '. In the vast majority of such publications, their authors, following another St. Augustine (IV-V cc.) interpret the texts of the Bible and the Gospel as symbolic allusions to scientific truth. Or, to prove the existence of God proposed schemes, in which appear thin, ultra-thin, astral and other matter, whose existence is self-evident. But forty years ago, the great Polish writer and philosopher Stanislaw Lem (1921-2006) found another way: he suggested creating a model of the universe in your computer (see the book 'Summa techologia', which was published in 1964 in Krakow, and was published in Russian translation in Moscow in 1968). In this book, the writer suggested that one day mankind will be able to build a computer model of the universe, which will develop life, intelligence and civilization.

In this case, S. Lem believed that the designer of this world will take steps to ensure that inhabit it sentient beings could not guess its artificiality, so that they do not feel prisoners model. The author of this article do not Agreeing with fiction in regard to concerns of the designer to protect the creatures that inhabit the artificial universe of knowledge about their 'nenastoyaschesti', at the same time took the idea of an artificial world in arms, and by removing its inside out, raised the question: 'Is not our own universe model in the computer? " If the Creator does not put a sling on the way to the discovery of the artificial nature of our universe, then it is possible that relevant evidence can be found.
