Despite the fact that modern human beings have been around for somewhere in the neighborhood of two hundred thousand years, there is still much about our existence that remains a mystery.

How did we come to be? What is the meaning of life? Do we control our own destinies? These are all questions that most of us have pondered over, at one point or another. In truth, we will probably never know any of the answers — not in this lifetime at least.

However, there is a theory, which is gaining significant momentum, that would go a long way toward explaining humankind's journey on this planet we call Earth. You see, there are some very smart people out there who believe the world as we know it is nothing more than a computer simulation. That's right, we could all be living in a virtual reality, or even a very complex video game. This idea has come to be known as the simulation hypothesis.

As strange as it may sound, there are some compelling reasons to believe this controversial theory. With that in mind, it's time to take a look at some of the reasons (and people) that suggest our world isn't what it seems.
