Why do atheists believe that the "laws" of the universe are constant and the same everywhere?

Why do atheists believe that the "laws" of the universe are constant and the same everywhere? What evidence is there for this beyond blind faith? If they aren't, science is worthless. Do they really think that 3000 years of recorded history, most of which comes from people who they would regard as superstitious morons is sufficient?

          Anon by this logic you could argue both that the world was created two weeks ago, two trillion years ago, or two minutes ago, all with same strength. It's sophomoric navel gazing that would have only been espoused by the most brain damaged philosophers. You're attempt at defending your world view has sent you down a path of nihilism where nothing matters, and truth is pointless. Please ever find a new sect of apologetics for the Abrahamic god, or a different divine world view. But just stop chasing the fricking dragon.

          That's right, like I said in another thread, some muslim theologians hold that the universe is created qunatum by quantum of time, and that "laws" are just "allahs" habits. What do you say about that?
          > two trillion years ago, or two minutes ago
          you can't disprove that either. I see no more reason to assume your methods of inventing dark matter and energy when new evidence made a laughing stock of science to make the universe work, than my idea that perhaps the laws aren't constant at all. that would fix the problems just as well.

            religion is the biggest comforting lie there is. trust me, i was a very serious christian for over a decade, and for the final year of that i was trying every day not to allow myself to think certain thoughts, in order to hold onto my faith. i wanted it so badly to be true, but once i realised i was preventing myself from thinking certain topics, i had to be honest with myself and accept that it's just simply not credible for me. i had to accept that uncomfortable truth

    Science shows overwhelming evidence that human-made laws are consistent and predictable.
    >If they aren't, science is worthless.
    The point of science is to try to prove itself wrong in order to create more accurate models of the world to get closer to truth. When a religion is wrong, it can only move the goalposts to make it seem infallible.

      Over the course of 100 or 200 years. Not a very large sample size for for a 14billion year old universe, nothing really.

      This is misapprehension.

        more like ever since the universe began, its even because of said laws people are able to make accurate predictions on what happened in the past followed by proving it, and thats says nothing of other shit such as being able to replicate said effects of those laws, you would know this if you payed attention in your hs science class

          the science you use to date things also depends on this assumption, without it, it all breaks down.
          its an assumption, not a proven fact, that's necessary to make it all work.
          you are mistaken,

            This is where corroboration steps in. Let's say you have five different methods for dating something. In order to change the results of method 1, there would need to be a change in parameter A. However, in order to change the results of method 2, there would need to be a change in parameter B.
            If the laws of the universe weren't constant, it would be incredibly strange that methods 1-5 consistently keep giving you results that corroborate one another. A change in parameter C would only affect the results of method 3, parameter D only method 4 etc., so the only way to achieve this result would be if all five parameters changed in unison and by precisely the amount that would keep the results of all five methods the same.
            Furthermore, adjusting parameter A by 50% doesn't necessarily lead to the same change in the results of method 1 as the change in the results of method 2 when you adjust parameter B by 50%.
            The only way this all could work would be if there's some incredibly powerful trickster who adjusts physical laws in such a manner that we are deceived into thinking they're constant.

        ok you explain science to me then. i guarantee 90% of professional scientists, researchers and professors, would agree with this characterisation
        but hey i doubt you studied stem, or have ever been within a mile of a higer educational institution, so you wouldn't know

          Actually I studied STEM at a top 20 US school. Not specifically for STEM but overall. You probably went to moron State, which explains your blind faith and rabid devotion (typical of the moronic).
          Models are not about better apprehension of reality. They're merely of practical use.

          If its not falsifiable, it isn't science.
          You cannot disprove the contention that universal laws were the same 1 billion years ago.
          Therefore it isn't science. And without it, science falls apart, beyond its limited practical use in the present, which is considerable.

        The universe is logical, nothing happens at random. In order to understand the universe we must pursue the truth, so humanity creates laws through mathematics and physics to better understand how the universe works. Anything is possible as long as the laws of the universe are obeyed.

        The point of science is to pursue truth, so whatever law we create that is incorrect must be corrected to align with the universe's true laws. The only two guarantees is that God is either real or God is not real. I suppose we will all find someday or not.

    Well there's no good evidence to suggest otherwise
    Why would we expect the laws to differ depending on where you are?

      We wouldn't, you're right.
      But all of the atheist arguments against creationism break down when you ignore those assumption, which are solely based on faith.

    It's the simplest explanation, if you want me to believe the contrary you'll have to show evidence of it.

    There is no experimental evidence of them changing. Also god has nothing to do with assuming they will remain constant

    Because it's observed that physical laws remain constant throughout the universe
    >What evidence is there
    Literally all science and all human experience indicates constancy of physical laws, properties and principles
    >blind faith
    You don't seem to know what you mean by this. Opening your fricking eyes and looking around you at what's plain to see for yourself is the precise opposite of blind faith.
