Computational Creationism

An article summarizing the view that the Universe is really a computer program. (Found by following Gilad Bracha's suggestion to google for serious uses of the phrase 'Computational Theology'; an almost self-defeating suggestion, since that page and references to it now occupy the top google slots for that phrase.)

One reference omitted is Ian Banks 'The Algebraist'. In that book, the principle religion of human culture is 'The Truth', a claim that there are arguments that the Universe must be a computer simulation, and that it will stop only when enough sentient beings accept that this is the case.
