Simulation hypothesis is a more reasonable explanation of our universe than Judeo-Christian beliefs

This idea was conceived by Nick Bostrum of Oxford University, though it is not strictly comprised of his own ideas. There are many other simulated reality arguments, which are,mostly, negligible in difference to that of the one in the link. I will allow the opening argument to be that presented in Bostrum's paper regarding the nature of our universe. I will simply defend it against rebuttals in the following rounds. I take no credit for this idea.

In absence of formal structure I will assume the first round is for acceptance.
I will however so graciously provide the basis of my arguments(just like Pro) as well the flavour of the model I am defending.


Judeo-Christian World-View:
~Kalaam Cosmological Argument
~Old Earth Creationism
~Theistic Evolution
~Jesus existed and was resurected

My refutation of the simulation-argument will rest greatly upon the Kuhnian view of Scientific progress.
I look forward to the debate.
