Are you a computer simulation?

Someone emailed me about my webpage at: http://www.philcovington.com/comp.html to ask if I really believed we are living in a computer simulation. He was referring to the paper by Bostrom titled "Are You Living In A Computer Simulation? ". No, I do not believe we are living in a computer simulation. It is an interesting paper though.

I think that Ed Fredkin's Digital Philosophy (http://www.digitalphilosophy.org) is probably closer to what underlies reality.
